A few friends and I want to make a video, kind of like Tom Green, but without most of the disturbing things he does, but we are having a hard time coming up with funny stuff to do. Tonight we thought it would be funny to catch a squirrel, and let it loose at walmart, but we need more ideas. What do you guys have?
You could always do the frozen can of shaving cream trick.
If you or your friends have a beater car that drives, but is one foot in the junkyard. You could always sabotage it and film it to look like you were doing a prank on someone.
Take some Saran Wrap, lightly cover it in vasoline, firmly attach it to someones front door and get them to run out of the house really quick. (make sure the door opens inward) I suggest you act that one out as well, and not actually do it to someone. It all depends on how you get them out of the house.
Take an entire roll of duct tape and use it to tape a someones car doors shut (go around the entire car.)
Find a fake arm, put some fake blood on it, make it look like someone got their hand slammed in the trunk and their arm was ripped off. Then film people's (possibly officer's) reactions. Bonus points if the driver of the car looks like they've lost the arm.
Walk around in public holding a jar with apple juice in it and a pickle floating around, maybe drink some of the apple juice. Again film peoples reactions.
Get some blood (butcher shop) freeze it, then go to a store that's closed at night and draw someones chalk outline near the enterance, strategially place the frozen blood to make it look like it came from the person in the outline when it thaws. Film people in the morning when the store opens. If you can get your hands on some caution tape, all the more realistic. (i doubt that police actually do outlines anymore, but most people wouldn't consider that.)
All these are off the top of my head. They are also theoretical, if you go to jail for anything I suggested, you did it of your own free will and it isn't my fault.

other ones I like, are interviewing people, while other people do stuff in mthe background.. my sister and her friends do this all the time in the summer... best one was where an old guy is talking to the camera, and a couple of people are stealing a street sign right behind him.. hehe..
pretending to film a school project is also good, you can get people to recite lines and stuff for you... or get a really big camcorder, like from the 80s... and put a sticker on it from a local tv station (see if they have bumper stickers or something at their office) then tell people they're on tv or something.
there are lots of other things, but not always the easiest to film... like putting milk powder or juice crystals in someone's bed... then crank up the heat after they fall asleep. their sweat will mix with the powder, and either make them reek of sour milk, or be all colorful from the juice crystals.
as for practical jokes I've done... we did the usual at school, turned all the desks around on april fools day, changed all the clocks, changed the dates on the blackboard (this was in elementary school), switched the salt & sugar.. but the best one... is when I made my parents think they were getting a tax audit.. LMAO!!
I got a revenue canada envelope, printed it up with their address.. then mailed it to them.. I put the right letterhead on it, included a couple of tax forms from the free booklets at the post office.. and got a babysitter to sign a fake name.. should have heard them freaking out when they read it!
I let them worry for about 3 hours before I told them it was a joke.. yeah I'm nasty.
Wipe your ass with a 5 dollar bill and then go to the mall at put it on the ground - clean side up. Watch people as they pick it up.
Go to somebody's house at 3 in the morning with a camera with a bright flash, ring the doorbell and wait for them to get it, when they do (probably half asleep), light the flash on the camera and shoot off a really loud cap gun, they will think they have just been shot. Then run like hell.

1) This will take some doing, but get a Hi Quality photocopy of the largest denomination of bill that you can lay your hands on. You only need ONE side. Cut it to size, and glue it to the sidewalk.
2) Greased piglet in Wal-Mart would be better. The stress will KILL the squirrel
3) Take one step further with the bloody arm thing: Have one person "wear" the arm, and load a trunk with something, and "accidentally" slam his hand into it. At that point, have the driver start moving, and the victim running after the car. (holding onto arm). Have the victim trip, the arm "tear free" (with associated bloody mess). Immediately, have the poor guy get up and start booking after the car, spraying blood out the stump.

To Those Who Play HOCKEY!!! Many moons ago I played for a University hockey team. We had our own dressing room and when you wanted your skates sharpened, you just left your skates in the center aisle of the room and the trainer would get around to sharpening them. Needless to say, after a while you got used to it..., you're skates were always sharp, so you hardly ever checked them. Well 2 teammates got permission to the room early, before Friday night's game(in which the entire school attended). They taped the length of our blades with scotch tape(now, no edge) and we proceeded to dress, then step out on the ice for a 15mins warmup prior to the game. Remember>>>(IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE SCHOOL). Now, to a hockey jock, stepping onto the ice,(with everyone watching) you always make the 'Grand' entrance.... "WTF" you say as you try to pick your ass up off the ice surface, and then realise there are 8 of your teammates joining you in doing "a hands & knees effort" crawl to the boards. (and the whole school is now dying with laughter!!!). Yeah, it was good entertainment at the pub later that eves. Just a Great memory!!! Sandy

This is similar to Don Chi Chi's idea. A few of my friends once got an old wallet and filled it with dog crap and got a $1 bill sticking out of it with crap smeared all over it. They went and threw it outside on the walkway of a resturant. One guy actually walked over to it, opened it up, and touched the bill, he had to get crap on his hand because it was all over it. He then proceded to take th wallet inside and he gave it to the lady working in the restuarant saying somebody lost it. Now thats funny.
I've got several long text files that detail pranks and vandalism. I think many of these are excerpts from the Anarchist Cookbook. I can add links if anyone is that interested. Here's a short section of text about screwing with the double-arches:
If you have a simple shortwave transceiver, Ham Radio, or powerful handheld transceiver, you can talk to the entire drive-thru crew. The antenna is located above the cashier in the drive-thru box and has a receiving radius of the entire store and about half of the parking lot. You can add stuff to peoples orders, or just screw around. Drive thru people have noticed that illegally powerful CB radios, side band radios and even some car phones can be picked up with the headsets. Be innovative and use these to piss the employees off. If you do not have access to one, simply hide behind the sign, and shout extra food or obscenities at the sign...
MCDONALDS GREASE DISPOSAL
This next trick involves little or no intelligence, or imagination, but seems to get people every time. Behind McDonald's, usually found next to trash cans or the empty soda-syrup containers, you will find a large drum marked "not-fit for human consumption" or "inedible contents." Although these warnings belong in the food, they mark the grease vat. This is tightly sealed for a reason... it smells like dead human. They are also easy to open. Usually, you can loosen the ring around the top and open the lid. Be sure to cover your face when you do this... it does smell like **** ... The nice thing about this is that the smell will cover the entire parking-lot area in roughly 10 minutes. Chemically, the smell will cause nausea, and definitely a loss in appetite. People will get sick everywhere, and definitely cause a loss of customers at McDonald's...
A simple addition to the previous trick would be to tip the can. The grease will probably have hardened, but on a warm day or if the black can is left in the sun, it will leave a sticky, raunchy mess in the parking lot that will be impossible to clean up, and will stink infinitely. This is a way to make the trick more damaging and longer lasting.

1. When someone has a job up on a lift and leaves for lunch. Let the lift down and place a cup of ice water on top of the engine. Tape a string or thread to the top of it and dangle it down so that it can be seen from the underside fairly easily. Raise the car back up in the air. I have never seen anyone that didn't pull the string.
2. Same scenario (lunch) but car on the ground. Tape a 2L Coke bottle to the end of an open (but turned off at the wall) air hose and hide it under the car. When he gets back to work turn on the air and the BOOM comes next. Almost as good as 3. hitting the horn when someones busy under the hood
4. Every shop has a "tough guy" working there who likes to prank everyone else but can't take it. Slap a rainbow sticker on his back bumper and see how long it takes him to notice. (note- I did this and the victim went to apply for a job at another shop owned by an old high school friend. I think the exact words were "Man.... I had no idea... "
I don't know if you guys have ever heard of this show or not, it is called Jack Ass and it is on MTV, anyway, I saw them do a couple of things that I will tell you about. The first requires a little work. You have to do this right before someone cuts the grass though, oh, and you have to have a lot of leaves. The first thing you do is dig a hole about 5-6 feet deep and long enough to fit a mower and a person into it. Cover the hole up with leaves so that the person can't see it and then when they drive over it with the mower, in ya go The next one was even better. You have to buy a fake doll and a carrier for it. You also need to have a girl that will play your wife and or girlfriend. Park your car or truck next to a curb. You and your wife or girlfriend get out of the car, with the fake baby in the carrier. Set the baby on top of the car and start talking to each other. Then kiss her goodbye and get into the car, but act like you don't remember the baby is on the top of the car. Start your car and leave with the baby on top, trust me, if you do it around a crowd, you will get one hell of a response. Those two are the funniest things that I have ever seen on Jack Ass, they don't hurt anyone, just good, clean fun

Go to a pay phone that is in a reletively busy area. Smear dog crap evenly out on the top hearing part and hang up the phone. Get the number to the pay phone and with a cell phone or something call that number. Somebody WILL answer the phone. At that point you say (while on your cell) "you got sh*t on you face"

I used to work in a storefront office of an employment agency, right between a trailer park and the Food 4 Less. Needless to say there were some money hungry people around. To amuse myself, I epoxy'd a quarter on the sidewalk in front of the office. Believe it or not, after about two weeks, someone actually got it up off the sidewalk. But it was funny to watch while it lasted...
A rubber snake, fishing pole and a busy roadway can be lots of fun- people will do some stupid stuff to try to kill a rubber snake being pulled across the street in front of them Our best "kills" were the trash men (back when about 4 guys rode the truck) and local law enforcement. One guy jumped out with an ax and chopped the snake to bits.

hmm, lemme think... spinning lawnmower blade vs. human appengages... who do ya think will win?
if someone tricked me into falling into a hole with a running lawnmower... if I got hurt, first thing I'd do is go to the hospital. but as soon as I got out of the hospital, or if I wasn't hurt, I'd ensure that they made a visit to the hospital very shortly afterwards, in an ambulance. without going into details, if anyone did that to me.. they would be injured.
1.) fax bomb - take a long piece of paper, write something obscene on it. Now run the long paper though the fax machine and tape the end of the paper to the front, like a big loop. This will waste all the paper in the other persons machine. This is really good if you know someone with one of those thermal roll fax machines.
2.) Go to the bathroom hand dryer thingy. Most of these dryers have have a swivel nozzel. Rotate the nozzel so it faces upward, fill with the powder of your choice. Sit back and wait for some sucker to use the dryer.
3.)Take apart someones telephone and put sardine juice in the mouthpiece. Reassemble the phone. The person will not know were the stink is coming from.

Hahahaha, Ken that was sick but funny because its a joke in a thread about jokes. Another thing we did this past weekend was take those 2way radios into walmart. Just put one of them somewhere in the store. You can hide it in many different places, we hid it inside a pinatta, and among many stuffed animals. Then you use the other one and when people are near or looking at the item you talk to them. Its so funny to see some peoples reactions. There was 5 of us there that night and one of my friends was in line buying something, he had the one and I had the other. Well, the 4 of us went to the front of the store near the doors and sat on the bench waiting for him. While he was buying stuff I started saying things to the lady working. It was so funny. Then he tops it off by telling the lady that it was his firefighters radio and the guys at the station were having fun with it. She believed him and I dont know how seeing that we were in line with him then left right before he was ready to pay and stuff. But it was a fun night.

one of the myths that was circulated in the Coast Guard: some enlisted guy wanted to be discharged and an admiral was coming to his station for an inspection.
just before they had to all line up in their uniforms for review, he smeared peanut butter all over the side and bottom of one of his shoes.
When the admiral saw it he asked "What the hell is that all over your shoe?"
finger to shoe, big brown glob, finger in mouth, poingant pause.... "Sir, its $hit Sir!"
You could do this anywhere - walk up to a bus stop with it on your shoe, notice it, complain about people walking their dogs... then taste it and say "hmmmmmmm pit bull I think.... yeah definately a pit bull".

With the way Anthrax scares are around here lately, I dont think that would be such a wise idea.
Here's one my friend and I did last night. Take eggs and crack them open and smear them all along someones windshield wipers, then take something a little sticky, but see through, like sprite soda or something, and just put big drops on their windshield. When they turn on their wipers it'll leave a bigger mess, and a harder one to get off. If you can't get the sprite, as long as they're going on the highway the eggs will run up the windshield and all over the paint
