Very good. You must be rolling in dough if they took it seriously... ;)

Saw a picture of the idea, but never heard of someone actually carrying it out.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

On an iPhone, send this gif to a friend through iMessage.  They'll think you're typing something and will wait, and wait, and wait...

I once sent someone a fancy box of coal.
That was fun.

(I got it free during a promo).
Live forever or die trying.

My wife was upset at me about something or other so on my wife home I bought some scratch off lottery tickets for her which always chears her up. But I snuck one fake one into the pile. One that when you scratch off reveals that you won $50,000. She screamed in excitement, then cried in disappointment, but then she laughed. Most importantly totally forgot about being mad at me.

In camp, the kids were told that they are getting ice cream in honor of the HC's birthday. They made a big deal with all the boys in the lunchroom and got everyone to make the shehakol together loud so no one eats before the rest. It was really frozen mayonnaise as a topping above a hard-boiled egg which was place in a cone. The kids were so into eating that some were only hit by the second or third bite...
Gross!
Reminds me of the following from my days in Yeshiva, which while not at all intended as a prank was quite entertaining to see every year:

Traditionally on Motzoei Yom Tov of the first days of Pesach, yeshiva kitchen would serve hard boiled eggs and cooked potatoes. This was served on the tables and accompanied by a bowl of schmaltz.

It was pretty entertaining to see the bochurim (mostly Israeli) who have never heard of, or seen schmaltz think that Yeshiva provided some kind of home made Mayonnaise....
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

How many bochurim were in yeshiva for Pesach? Didn't they go home?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

In 770 back in those days over 100. I would guess that nowadays it might be more, just because there are many more Israelis (who are usually the overwhelming majority of  that don't go away for Pesach).

Till this day there are well over 100.
Almost all "Kevutzah" Bochurim stay as well as some others.

I verbally told people that were coming to my Purim seudah that everyone in attendance will be receiving an iPad.  When we started eating I gave everyone an iPad box with one of these inside:

I can't view the image. What did you put in the iPad boxes?
