Though April Fool’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, that’s no reason to miss out on pranking your coworkers, and possibly even your boss. Friday is as good a day as any to celebrate, because when else will you get a free pass to be immature and be remembered as an office legend? Here are some harmless, yet hilarious pranks perfect for the office.  

1. Scare the living daylights out of them with a horrifying image tucked into their desk drawer.
