Christine: All girls High School in the Chicago Area, we brought Alarm Clocks and set them all to go off at the same time in our lockers. It was the best ! The nuns were not too happy though.

Teri: The best April Fools prank I ever pulled was on my Mom. I am originally from California, and I lived in N.C. at the time. I told her I wasn't going to be able to come home for a visit for her birthday (which was April 5th) because I couldn't afford it. I showed up on her doorstep on April Fool's day at 8:00 a.m. The look on her face when she realized it wasn't a door-to-door salesman, but ME standing there was priceless! We had a wonderful visit.

Leslie: Toothpaste filled oreos. Some even dunked them in milk!
