This year brought the happy coincidence of Easter Sunday falling on April 1st, or April Fool’s Day. So instead of your work colleagues or classmates falling victim to your fiendishly ingenious pranks, it was family and significant others’ that were the target this time.
Speedflying Scotsman Chris Erwood got into the spirit of both occasions by presenting his girlfriend Alicia with a perfectly disguised prank-egg. With an impressively well thought-out and well executed effort, Chris shows us how, with a handy step-by-step guide, to construct the egg for “the arachnophobic in your life.” Was it long in the planning? “Not long!” Chris told Bored Panda. “I’d joked about doing something like this a while back but I wasn’t set on it until the middle of last week.”
Alicia really is arachnophobic, and this prank is pure evil genius. “I screamed and dropped them all over the table and floor,” she explained. “I know there are some spiders that I’ve probably missed picking up, so it’s only a matter of time before our cats start playing with them and depositing them in the bed.”
“It’s the gift that keeps on giving”
The couple have been together for a little over 3 years, and clearly love messing with each other a little. According to Alicia, Chris has a track-record for this kind of thing. “Every year I fall for the same spider-themed pranks, I am actually in fear for next April fools day!” She told us. “How do I go about getting a holiday banned?!” She admits that despite it all, she does find it hilarious, and it’s all just good fun.
However we are sure that revenge is on the cards, and Chris has some mad trouble headed his way. “This is probably the worst one so far, it was definitely one of his more creative pranks,” Alicia told Bored Panda. “I already have a plan to get him back.”
“I’m just biding my time.”
