You could get her back by telling her you knocked up her best friend.

Purchase a lottery ticked a few minutes after the winning lottery numbers are revealed. Use the winning numbers and leave the ticket on the refrigerator or on the table..Read out the winning numbers and verify them with the newspaper :) watch people go from extreme happiness to extreme anger and enjoy :D

Show up at work with toy guns and scream "I can't take this anymore"...
Watch your co-workers run..

Mess with the master/slave jumpers in a hard drive belonging to a Mac user. Watch the confusion on his face when his system starts crashing left and right or not boot at all.

April Fool Jokes are ineffective for individuals that can read the minds of the perpetrators. Hypothetically speaking of course. :p

A little bit of clear tape over their mouse ball. It would probably work just as well for someone with an optical mouse.

I drafted up a faux letter from the RIAA to send to my boss (the IS manager)... In the letter it will explain that a machine on our campus is sharing illegal music files, etc. I took the text from an actual RIAA subpeona letter, so it sounds pretty legit! We'll see how it goes...

I even put in a real IP and MAC address in the letter and planted some songs and Kazaa program files on the computer in question (which happens to belong a friend of mine--this will be my April Fools joke on him too!).

I put a marble in my dad's slipper when I was younger. Boy was he not happy about that one.

Epsil0n00 that is pretty risky of a joke if you ask me. Most likely destroying the productivity of at least two co-workers for a full day and just hope it doesn't get above them. But you probibly know them better then I do :p
