Are you tired of your kids or roommate constantly leaving half-eaten Happy Meals lying around? Annoyed at the office jerk who pulls up in a Hummer, prints out mountains of paper and guzzles bottled water like a marathon runner?
Have we got some ideas for you! Check out these green pranks, and strike back against environmental indecency.
Leave a coupon for a free Whopper conspicuously on the floor. When someone bends down to pick it up, loudly rip a piece of cloth (preferably you'll be behind them). When they look embarrassed, say "That's what happens when you eat fast food."
The Ransom Note
Kidnap all the water bottles from your home or office. Leave a ransom note from The Polar Bears (pictured).
The Prince of Printouts
Got a coworker who prints out every single email, and 10 drafts of every thing they write? No problem! Go into their computer after they leave and switch the default printer to "pdf writer" or some other similarly useless option. That'll teach em!
Avalanche O' Paper
Tired of people wasting paper? Get some old newspaper and tape it over the bedroom or office of the offender (assuming it opens to the inside). Tape it around the edges, going up to nearly the top of the opening. Fill the space between the door and the newspaper with crumpled up paper scraps. When they open up, they'll be met with an avalanche!
The Wet Willy
Got a coworker, family member or friend who always leaves the water on when they're brushing their teeth or fixing their hair? Leave a bucket or cup perched above a door, and prompt them to walk through. You can even prop the bucket under a piece of cardboard, taped to the ceiling with a string, and marked: Don't waste so much water, do you think it falls from the sky or something?
The Cold Shower
Similarly, got a loved one who takes 45-minute hot showers every day? Fill a cup of cold water, and wait until they get all lathered up in the tub. Then, quietly, stealthily dump the icy cold water over the top of the shower on them!
Let it Mellow
Live in one of those "alternative" households with the toilet rule "if it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down"? If someone in your crib just won't follow the rules, get em: put plastic wrap over the toilet bowl. The splattering that results will teach them a thing or two.
Give Them a Taste of Their Own Medicine
Know a hater who mocks you for your Toms of Maine natural toothpaste? When theyre not looking, rub salt or garlic powder into the bristles of their toothbrush. Then watch as they taste the nasty later.
