Johnny Monsarrat April Fools

Johnny Monsarrat Pranks

I still remember my 5th birthday. Mom called me into the kitchen for breakfast and served me a cereal, toast, and orange juice on a wooden tray. But the toast was cardboard, smeared with butter and jam. The cereal was shredded carboard. I don't mean that it tasted like cardboard. She was serving me cardboard for breakfast!

This blew my mind. I was the perfect victim. At five, not only had I never seen a prank, I had no concept of prank. I stared at her like the world was suddenly unreal. So my own mother messing with my head was how I learned what a prank was. But it was a nice prank, just like the Wall of Wheat Puffs Prank that she and friends played on me 20 years later.

When I grew up and went to MIT, I found the students there would put a phony police car on a rooftop, or hang six-sided die the size of a trailer home in the lobby. Whether I took part I cannot say, but I seemed to always be nearby.

These are nice pranks. A nice prank makes its 'victim' giggle. It honors someone you care about. A prank is never super-inconveniencing. You set the prank up, you take it down. How about you? Send your prank ideas to johnny@eventsinsider.com or just write me to say hello. I'd love to hear from you!

Here's more on me and my crazy projects. I hope you enjoy these wacky stories!
