April Fools is quickly approaching, and rather than report on industry shifts today, we’re making sure you’re prepared for the ultimate day of pranks that are guaranteed to get some laughs from your colleagues. In fact, they can be used year-round if you really feel inspired.
Just because you’re at work doesn’t mean fun is off limits. Nothing lifts the spirit of a work environment like a well-executed prank.
We all need a little nonsense throughout the day, so we’re bringing you ten office pranks that require little effort. Maybe you can even pull them off on your lunch break!
If you’re looking to be the MVP in prank wars this April Fools Day, we’ve got you covered:

2. Healthy Kreme
This one could have coworkers with a serious sweet tooth in tears. A healthy twist on a prank is never good news.
