15 Inspired Office Pranks That Can Brighten Up a Bleak Week at Work

If there’s anything Jim from The Office taught us, it’s that it’s important (for your sanity) to have a little fun at work. Even on days that don’t start with April and end with 1. And as long as it’s harmless, you won’t be the only one who enjoys it.

Now, pulling off the perfect office prank isn’t easy. (And yes, I know not everyone has the time to encase office supplies in JELL-O.) However, I did a little digging on Twitter and found a few people who have managed to pull off some pretty hilarious stunts, from switching the keys on a co-worker’s keyboard to turning a filing cabinet into a fish tank.

How is this even possible? Take a look below and get inspired.

Got any better ideas? Have you tried (and succeeded at) any of these? Tweet me your favorite office pranks!
