What is the best prank you’ve pulled on someone or was pulled on you? In college, my roommate went away for the weekend and I had nothing to do. So obviously I purchased 600 square feet of aluminum foil from the grocery store and protectively wrapped every single thing in his room in aluminum foil. His bed, pillows, carpet, desk, chair, lamp, you name it; it was covered. The detail was outstanding, he had this cup of coins he was saving up…yep every individual coin was safely wrapped. Weeks later he was still pulling out pens from his backpack or looking for books that were still covered.
