Worst prank of all? Not pulling off a prank! Just leave some cryptic notes warning your officemate that something is coming. Every so often, cast a furtive eye toward him/her and smirk slightly. It’ll sure drive him/her nuts!

Other Funny Prank Ideas:

  • Put a piece of paper under the laser of your officemate’s computer mouse so it won’t work.
  • Swap two keys on someone’s keyboard! The N and M keys work particularly well for this.
  • Take a screenshot of your officemate’s computer desktop, set it as his/her wallpaper, and delete all his/her shortcut icons on the desktop.
  • Besides the Oreo prank, you can bring an office “snack” such as caramel-covered white onions and chocolate-covered tuna balls.
  • Sit at your desk and make sounds using your fax or modem. If someone asks what you’re doing, tell him/her you’re practicing for your promotion to the Xerox room.
  • Ask your co-workers a few mysterious questions and write their answers in a notepad. Mumble something about “psychological profiles.”
  • Wrap every item at your co-worker’s desk in foil!
