When they turn on the lamp, they will immediately see the shadow of some of the area's grossest insects without actually having to deal with a bug problem. VEGGIE DOUGHNUT BOX Showing up this April 1 with a couple boxes of delicious donuts will make you pretty popular around the office. But when your coworkers open the boxes to find an assortment of veggies, they’ll be pretty disappointed. Nothing will taste as bad as cauliflower and Brussels sprouts when they were expecting fun glazed treats. IPHONECEPTION We all know this person: the “Apple for life” friend.

chair. As they sit in the chair, it will sink just enough to set the air horn off. The trick to this is in the placement of the air horn. You need to ensure it’s at the right height below the seat, because if it's too low, the air horn won't go off.
