Opinion: What's Your Best April Fools Prank?

Patch asks readers to share their favorite April Fools pranks and gags.

When I was 8 years old my best friend, who knew I liked Snickers, happily offered me a snack-sized bar as we walked into .

I immediately grabbed the candy bar and took a bite only to find that it was a foul tasting pencil eraser disguised as nutty goodness. As an aside, a couple loose teeth I had shifted roughly as I bit down.

He laughed and said, "April Fools!"

For the rest of the day, I had a bitter taste in my mouth—from both the eraser and the fact that I had fallen for the trick.

Not the funniest or most creative prank, I know, but one I always remember when I reach for a Snickers. So this begs the question, what's the best prank you ever pulled or fell for?

"Happy" April Fools!

One of my dear coworkers had a really annoying ringtone, and insisted on being obnoxious about it. So, to get back at him, we snatched his phone while he wasn't looking and hid it in the ceiling. We then spent the day calling his phone and snickering at his frustrated attempts to find it. The joke was on us though, as he got so frustrated he punched a hole in the wall... oh wait, that was The Office. Good episode though.
