Either late on March 31st or very early on April 1st sneak into a shared office and unplug two phones and re-plug them in with the lines crossed. Both victims will go nuts trying to figure out why they're getting each others' calls.
The Walls Have Eyes
Buy a bunch of googly eyes from a craft store and stick them everywhere all over a person's desk.
Stop the Calls
If the victim has a phone with a hook that presses down when the handset is in the cradle, tape it down. When he or she answers a call it will keep ringing.
Has your victim been working on an important document on their computer? Carefully hide the document in a safe place, then create a fake document with the same name. Fill the document with gobbledy-gook or a funny story. At the bottom put "April Fool's!"
Sneak onto your victim's computer and do a Google search for something really embarrassing (hemorrhoids, gender reassignment surgery, butt pimples, etc.). Leave the results window open for all to see!
Stuck in a Rut
Use string or wire to tie your victim's drawer shut. (You'll need to remove the drawer above to access the back so you can accomplish this.)
Did You Call Me?
If you have an office phone system that allows conference calling, you can prank two people at once. Call the first victim's extension, then very quickly call the second victim and push the conference button. Now both people will think the other person called them and will begin arguing over who called whom!
Time Off Trickery
Coordinate everyone in your office to play a practical joke on your boss. Throughout the day, each person should email, voicemail or leave a note for the boss, saying they need extended time off. Each person should give a different explanation: pregnancy, sick family member, etc.
Go into the victim's office and locate every pencil and pen in their desk. Paint the tips with clear nail polish. When they try to write, none of them will work. (After the prank is revealed, the nail polish can be removed by dipping the pens and pencils in polish remover.)
Take the Call
Use glue to secure the victim's handset to the phone (be sure to use glue that can be removed...check the label first because some glue will destroy plastic). Then go to a nearby phone, call their number and watch while they lift the entire phone to their ear.
Place post-it notes on every item on someone's desk labeling what each thing is. EVERY ITEM. Vintage office prank.
Can You Do It
If he has an overhead bin style cabinet, layer the bottom with paper, then attach the paper to the door (with tape or something) so it comes out when the door to the cabinet is open. Then fill it with empty soda cans. When he opens the door to his cabinet, viola, all the cans will come crashing out and it will be most embarrassing for him.
Borrow the victim's cell phone when they aren't around and change the language setting to a foreign language. Then watch and laugh as they struggle to translate the setting instructions on their phone.
