If you’re like most people in this day and age, the thought of office pranks makes you think of, well, The Office. The NBC sitcom brought us master prankster Jim Halpert. Right from the start of the show, he was putting desk items in Jell-O and wrapping things in gift wrap. And of course, the pranks only got better from there.
But office pranks have been around a heck of a lot longer than John Krasinski and Rainn Wilson. Let’s face it, working in an office can be boring. Even though there’s a lot of work to do, there’s also some downtime. And when you put a dozen bored people in a small building together, prank wars ensue.
They range from the simple and classic to the involved and outrageous. Some people find them funnier than others do. But let’s be real — it’s always a little bit fun to mess with your coworkers who don’t have a sense of humor.
It’s important to include everyone in the fun. That’s how to pull off an epic prank. It’s surprising, creative, and of course, it catches people off guard, making them laugh. Here are 60 of the best office pranks to pull on fellow coworkers. Happy pranking!
