One year I painted my husband’s soap bar with clear nail polish, let it dry, and put it back in the shower. It would not lather no matter how hard he tried.


I ordered several prank books with horrifyingly awkward titles. I’m placing them in a box labeled with my neighbor’s address. I’m going to bring them inside as if they were mistakenly delivered to my house, and have instructed my son to rip the box open whilst it’s unattended on the counter. My husband will now have the unenviable job of taking our neighbors their opened box of books with titles like,”A**l Bleaching for Beginners”. I coordinated with the neighbors with instructions to make my husband squirm with discomfort over opening their package. I will give him a good five minutes over there, and then finally let him realize he’s been pranked.

Putting googley eyes on everything.


A few years ago, my partner tempered some chocolate and made me a mixed bag of flavours to enjoy. Macadamias, crushed hazelnut, etc… then I came across the ONE! A chocolate covered cherry tomato. It was absolutely disgusting and quite a shock.

I switched up the order of my brothers drawers once. He was not amused and neither was mom. I still think it was funny and completely harmless.

Buy a leek from the shop and put it under the sink. Then tell your SO that you think theres a leak under the sink and ask them to look for it.


A number of years ago I put pop-rocks under the toilet seat after he went to bed. His morning poop woke him up better than coffee! He loved it, I loved it, 10/10 prank.

My husband changed my autocorrect in my phone to make “you” swap to “ya’ll.” He’s lucky he picked a forgivable prank.

I made fake dog poops out of tootsie rolls that matches the size and consistency of what our Yorkie produces from her back end. Then I left them on the floor where my wife would see them.

After she woke up and made the discovery, I heard her yell, cursing at the dog. “I’ll get it.” I replied, and promptly picked them up and popped them in my mouth and chewed them up.

The look on her face was priceless.

Here’s what I’m doing for my husband tomorrow: our favorite pizza place cuts their pizzas into strips. We’ve been going there weekly for 24 years. I worked it out with the owner that tomorrow the guys are going to cut our pizza into traditional triangle slices. He will FREAK OUT! Ha!! I thought of this prank last year and I’ve been waiting to use it for months!! I’m so excited!!

Edited to add: I hear you! I will update you guys tomorrow! You’ve made my night – thank you for sharing in my excitement. :).

When we were kids, my sisters and I took all of my dad’s underwear and socks and sewed them together end to end so that when you pulled one out, they all came out. They were super loosely sewed together (like two long stitches each) so it was easy to cut them apart.

Buy a toilet brush identical to the one you already have. Then place the new one in the dishwasher.
When she notices, and maybe freaks out a little, remind her that you have been washing it like that for months/years without her complaining.

Not a SO, but I remember coming back from school and my sister said there were brownies in the fridge. I went there, opened it up and there were a few brown ‘E’s. She cut up some papers in the shape of an ‘E’ and colored them brown. That little s**t.

Leave oranges around the house when they’re sleeping. Throughout the day, hand them oranges. When they’re talking, say “Hold this for a sec” and hand them an orange.

Confuse, don’t abuse.

My husband has this silly thing that he loves pretending it snowed and gets me all excited to see out the window (I love snow). We’ve had some pretty random weather lately so I think I might be able to pull off pretending it snowed. Pretty sure he has no idea its April 1st tomorrow either.
