In our most recent manager's meeting at Office Playground, the CEO proposed, "How about we TP the DC?" The phrase TP the DC sounds cryptic and likely that was the intention. We call our Distribution Center the "DC" for short, and I think most people would probably figure out the TP part. At first, my mind didn't think "TP" equals toilet paper, but once it was said out loud, it made perfect sense (how often does your boss suggest throwing toilet paper all over the warehouse?). And since April Fools' Day was only a few days away, the idea was even more perfect.

Our plan was kept super secret. Only a select few knew about the practical joke. The plan was to take action at the end of the day on Monday, March 31, the day before April Fools' Day. After a brief discussion about the logistics, we were all set to start the shenanigans.

At 5:00, the toilet paper started flying. We did our best (with the slightly limited supply of TP) to make a real impact. We tossed rolls of toilet paper from one end of the warehouse to the other, wrapped computer monitors with more TP, and assembled a tower of packing boxes. I'm sure our dedicated distribution center staff members are already plotting revenge.

Another one of my favorite practical jokes was when we put the Remote Controlled Whoopee Cushion in the CEO's office, but we'll save that story for another day. How does your workplace celebrate April Fools' Day? Office Playground has all kinds of Gag Gifts, including Whoopee Cushions, rubber chickens, and fake poop that will help get you started.
