Kraft Mac n Cheese Powder as OJ

Cocktail Served Orange Juice Orange Juice

Just the thought of this one makes us gag. Everyone loves Kraft Mac and Cheese! Who doesn’t? We’ll tell you who: The people on the receiving end of this prank. Now, I don’t know WHY you would have a left-over packet of the cheese mixture, but if you do, take it and pour it in some water in a pitcher and stir well. It’ll look pretty much like orange juice. Leave it in your fridge and wait…


Plastic Wrap Their Car

You’re going to need a LOT of plastic wrap and a LOT of time; you’ll wanna make sure your friend will be occupied for a while. Cling the plastic wrap to one part of the car and just start going around in circles until their car is covered with plastic wrap. The whole thing. Bonus points for also wrapping it to a sign or pole. It’ll take them forever to get it all off.


Car magnets for things they would hate.

Does your friend love/hate Trump? Love/hate the environment? Love Apple and hate Microsoft? If your friend is passionate about ANYTHING, there’s most likely an opposite thing they equally hate. Find out what those are, buy some car magnets relating to those things, and just place them on your friend’s car. We recommend only using few at a time at most (so they don’t notice at first) and replacing them every time they remove them. We also DON’T recommend bumper stickers. Those do NOT come off easily. You’re trying to pull a prank, not ruin your friend’s car.


Fake Note

If you’ve ever hit a parked car you know the proper thing to do is to leave a note with your information. Unfortunately, not everyone does this. However, what you’re going to do is leave a note saying something along the lines of “Sorry for the damage” on your friend’s car (Don’t ACTUALLY damage their car). They will spend a lot of time trying to find this “damage” someone apologized for. 


Re-label Bug Spray as Air Freshener


Do your friends like their homes to smell nice and fresh? Do they use aerosol can air fresheners? Perfect. Just buy a can of bait spray (it’s exactly what it sounds like), find a popular Air Freshener label online, print it out, and adhere it to the bait spray. When your friends go to freshen up their house…they’ll be in for a stinky surprise. Just make sure you get the funkiest smelling spray.
