List Rules
Vote up the most hilarious pranks.

Whether you're sharing your college dorm with fellow students, or you're doing the roommate thing well into adulthood à la Will & Grace, there is always time for funny roommate pranks. You may think your roommate needs to lighten up. Perhaps you're close friends and just want to make them laugh. Or maybe they aren't much of a friend at all, and you'd like to initiate a little harmless passive-aggression; heck, a prank might even bring you closer together. Whatever your reason for wanting to pull an innocent but still wickedly fun prank, there's one out there with your name on it.

And you're in good company, too. Pranks and practical jokes have a surprisingly long and interesting history. The first documented one dates all the way back to the 15th century, when a monk concealed a beetle in a hollowed-out apple and frightened his monk-friends. Yup, that's the distinguished lineage you can join.

To get started, take a gander at this list of the best pranks for roommates.
