I love victimless, safe practical jokes. And I love playing in the workspace, and on the job. But most of all, I’m a fan of staying employed, and avoiding getting fired.
Good news, fun seekers… you can do all of that and more if you select the right types of practical jokes.
Here is a great way to freak out your friends and family — that can also be safely taken to work.
Secretly put an uncooked piece of pasta in your mouth. Those little “Pasta Elbows” work great for this gag.
Now find somebody close to you (friend, spouse, boyfriend, whatever!) and ask them to help you crack your neck. Explain that you can’t move your neck as you normally can and that you need their help in fixing it. They won’t know what you mean exactly but that’s just fine. Have them stand behind you as you sit in a chair. Direct them to put their hands on your head and help you to GENTLY turn your head.
With their hands on your head and your hands on their hands, slowly turn your head. While you are turning your head, bite down hard on the pasta elbow. They’ll feel the crunch through your skull.
Now you just say, “Thanks! That is so much better!” Freaked out is an understatement.
