10 Epic Pranks Pulled Off By People With Way Too Much Time On Their Hands

When it comes to April Fools' Day, it's one thing to put tape on someone's computer mouse or place plastic wrap over a toilet bowl, but it's quite another thing to spend days -- even weeks -- crafting a single prank of epic proportions.

Spoiler alert: these 10 people fall into the latter category.

Find out just how far some people are willing to go to torment the unsuspecting with these time-and-sanity consuming pranks. If you're one of those people who always waits until the last minute, maybe these will inspire you to step up your game.

  • Imagine how long this took (and how long it took to take off).
    Their surprised reaction will almost make standing outside in the cold all night worth it.
  • And that, my friends, is called the 'Long Con.'
    Six months? Now that's dedication.
  • Where 4th grade science skills meet a whole lot of patience.
    This probably works best on a coworker who's been on vacation.
  • Three years later, they're probably still picking these up.
    April Fools' Day pranksters can learn a lot from high school seniors.
  • Bucket? Check. Snow? Check. Friend? To be decided.
    For when you want to turn that Spring snow storm into a back-breaking prank.
  • Someone clearly had a lot of time (and string) on their hands.
    String theory, anyone?
  • Laying sod is a chore... Unless you're doing it indoors.
    Does this mean he no longer has to take the dog outside?
  • Let's not even get into all the misuse of the office printer.
    Don't just prank them, make them stare into their own eyes.
  • We don't even want to know how long it took to get all these signs.
  • The amount of detail that went into this is impressive.
    But probably not as impressive as the person's reaction.
