They say humor is a key to success at work. It helps build trust, puts others at ease, and boosts morale. Injecting humor into your workday is also a potent stress buster. It relaxes you while increasing your productivity.
If you are running out of things to laugh at while at work, here are 40 people and their hilarious office pranks.
1. In case an earthquake happens
In theory, this pair of googly eyes can let you know if an earthquake is happening. I’m just not sure if it’s the best detection kit for this office. The employees may start laughing instead of running if they see those eyes move.
2. The only keys needed
This person worked hard to prank his office mate. He spent his precious time to take out the rest of the keys one by one.
3. An image of a printed image
It looks like someone has been listening to Bob Marley lately. Even when dealing with a broken printer, he still managed to come up with this. That’s probably the extent of Bob Marley’s influence.
4. Which one?
This sign can make any employee pause and think. It’s like an evaluation of what you’re like and how people consider you at work.
5. To that person
If you always find your food missing in the office, try this prank. If someone gets offended, there’s a good chance that he’s the culprit.
6. Not funny
If you are one of those people who can’t function properly without a good cup of coffee in the morning, this is the worst prank that can ever happen to you. Coffee is no joke. There’s no point in using it as a part of a prank.
7. In the husband’s office
This man knows that working at home can get boring. To keep things fun in his “office”, he decided to wear a Spiderman costume and play video games during his break.
8. Finding Ed
This person must have had enough of people asking him where Ed is. He found a clever way to end his problem once and for all.
9. The dishes
To the co-worker who doesn’t wash the dishes, this note is for you. It’s pretty direct so you should be able to understand it.
Some people at work are passive-aggressive. Instead of just telling others not to push the button hard, they come up with pranks like this. But I’m not complaining since it’s quite hilarious!
11. Just making sure
This man was too afraid that someone else would take over his office while he’s on vacation. He installed a barricade just in case someone tries to move in.
It seems that someone likes to pick a fight at work. Otherwise, why would he do something like this?
13. Fighting back
These employees have a funny way of letting their employers know that they aren’t alright with being told what to do. Standing for what they believe in is never a wrong thing.
14. Good plan
During emergencies, you need to act fast. You should be quick on your feet if you want to survive.
A fish tank inside a filing cabinet- this is probably the last thing you expect to see in your work station. It’s an odd but amusing surprise.
16. The boss
When your boss loves himself so much, you make something like this. He won’t hate this prank because he adores himself so much.
17. Last minute gifts
This is a clever thing to do if you are running out of gift ideas. Your co-worker will surely like all of your gifts. Well, how can he hate the things he picked for his office?
18. On April Fool’s day
This man might have one the best April Fool’s day pranks at work but I don’t think he will still have his job the next day. Of all people and offices at work, he chose to put 2,000 balloons in his boss’ place.
19. A yearly victim
Each year, everyone at work pulls an April Fool’s prank on the person who owns this desk. During this time, they chose to turn his desk into a ball pit.
20. Bieber everywhere
Not everyone likes Justin Beiber. For those people, seeing his face all over the place can be a total nightmare.
21. Early Halloween
If this prank was done around the Halloween season, you probably won’t get offended by it. However, if you do it several months away from November, it’s a different story.
22. Going healthy
Don’t tell your co-workers that you’re trying to get into a healthier diet. They’ll surely pull off something like this.
23. After two weeks
This employee went on a vacation for 2 weeks. This was what he saw when he came back.
24. Locked milk
Milk stealing has become too serious in this workplace. Employees now have to take extra measures to keep their bottles safe.
There’s a thief in the office these people are trying to find out who it was. They picked the perfect trap for it.
I would probably have a mini-heart attack if I see something like this at work. There’s not just one but a whole department of dinosaurs!
Even though they were told not to print large jobs, they still printed this. That’s how rebellion works when you’re in this office.
28. A business meeting
Why would the Power Rangers hold an important business meeting with their boss? I’m pretty sure this will surely leave employees feeling confused.
29. Pick a number
I wouldn’t dare take a number in this office. I’d probably file my complaint somewhere else.
30. An odd sense of humor
Cakes are supposed to look enticing and delicious. This farewell cake is too far from that.
31. Getting coffee
The longer you stare at this, the funnier it gets. I guess you’re not just getting caffeine when you use this coffee maker- you also get a good laugh!
32. When you’re the only guy at work
There’s only one guy in the office. The ladies were kind enough to put his name on the bathroom sign.
The management found the employees using the bathroom frequently. This was their attempt to address the situation.
34. Away from the office
Employees are noticing that this person has been spending way too much time away from the office. This was their way of telling him that.
This is probably one of the oldest pranks you’ll see. Even though it’s old, it still works every single time.
The dead cockroach has been in that spot for half a month already. One employee did this to get the cleaning company’s attention.
Don’t believe your eyes. That’s not the real Jack. He’s actually on a vacation.
38. Too much free time
It’s not easy to pull off a prank. You need to have a lot of free time if you want to make something like this.
39. Giant teddy bears
A local store had a great deal on giant teddy bears. This man’s co-workers considered it as the perfect opportunity for a prank.
40. A flat cat
No one stepped on that cat. It just came to work like that one day.
