Calling All Pranksters!

New year, new contest, right?

As you may have guessed, there is some major midnight pranking going on in JOYRIDE (can we say felony?). While my characters are having a blast, I thought it would be fun toย let readers blow off some creative steam without the risk of actually getting arrested. (Arrested=bad). Sooooo I’m opening a contest and calling for prank ideas!

Send me your best prank ideas, however big or small, to annabankspranks@gmail.com. Notice that they can be ideas, not pranks you’ve actually executed in the past (but I welcome those too!). I’ll be collecting submissions for the month of January (submissions must be in by February 1st!). You are welcome to submit more than one entry. The more the better!

There will be one winner, which I will choose, and the winner gets:

1.) A signed ARC of JOYRIDE!

2.) The winner’s prank will be featured in the prequel to JOYRIDE, which will be offered as bonus content to all preorders!

3.) A HUGMONGOUS pranking gift basket with all the pranking essentials needed for a mischievous night out!

So what are you waiting for? Start brainstorming those pranks and get them to me. I can’t WAIT to see what you come up with!

    A few months ago my brother and dad were at the movie theater seeing Intersteller. My sister-in-law, our friend and I were out shopping at the walmart near by when we got the idea to mess with the car they drove in. We moved the car, turn the wipers on, changed the radio station to a country station and turned it up really loud and reclined the chairs. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    When they got back to the house later, much later than they should have, it turns out my brother freaked out so much Mall Security called the police and he had a report written up. HAHAH. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh another prank we pulled on my brother.. the weekend of her bachelorette party we used a sharpie marker and lipstick to give my sister-in-law a realistic looking “tattoo” and pranked my brother into thinking she got his named tattooed on her. He totally believed it too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also, last one… I tried to talk my sister into pranking my brother with this:

    She was afraid he’d get excited so she decided against it. But we had a good laugh over it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It’s a pretty basic prank but it’s worth a laugh: you scare someone then somebody hits them with a ball

    I am a size four in kids shoes(it’s weird even for me okay?), so I got these special socks to go with my vans, you know the no-see-socks and my little sister had been borrowing them behind my back (grrr) I wanted to catch her in the act so I bought a smaller pair of socks from the baby section in the same colors. I waited for her to do her laundry and waited until the drier stopped. I took all my socks and putt the new ones in with the rest of the clothes.
    I caught her while she was taking out her laundry and asked what she had done with my socks (accusing eyes and all). She dug through the clothes and found the baby socks (eyes wide lol) panic over her shrinking her clothes, she went crazy double checking her clothes. (laughs)
    I finally showed the socks I was hiding behind my back and she swore never borrow my stuff again. It was all a good laugh until she told my mom… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, there are lots of pranks I’ve done, so here are some:
    1. My friend told me she saw our teacher at an electronics shop (which is a serious business) the other day, so I made up a story why he was there. In reality he was buying ink but I told her he met up with some dealers behind that electronic shop to buy illegally a dog and named it Fiffy. I got some other classmates to join me, in case she asks them if it’s really true that the teacher told us that and makng her totally believing that story. The next chemistry lesson she got to the front and was totally convinced that Fiffy was real and asked our teacher, how Fiffy is going and if she could see a picture of his dog which he illegally bought. The teacher immediatelly knew I was up to something and glanced over to me and I put my thumbs up to give him the signal he should go on and he told her Fiffy is fine but he does not have a picture. When she got back I ask her if she knows that the teacher just made a fool out of her because Fiffy is not real and revealed everything. That was so funny even for the teacher who had no clue what has happend until then to see her face and how embarressed she was.
    2.My parents once told me to get them ice coffee from the coffee store but I had no fun to do that. That’s why decided to take a McDonald’s ketchup package and opened it to put the strawhalm in it. I opened the top of the cups an put it into the ice coffee and put the top back again. I gave them the coffee and they drank it. But it tasted weird for them, so I told them what I’ve done and that they should re-think if they want me to get coffee again.
    3. I have this one friend who has OCD but is always for good pranks. Some my other friends and I put post-its all over his room where he can’t see it like under his desks, on the inside of is lamp, on the inside of his sliding door wardrobe, behind his desks,…(We used two packages of post-its and put multiple ones on every place) When he came back to his room everything looked quite normal and we told him we had changed something in his room and we wouldn’t be able to play video games online nor sleep that night if he wouldn’t find out what. He started to look everywhere but he couldn’t find it. It took him almost 2 hours to find the first place where we have hidden it because the post-its were fallen down from the ceiling since we had put some in his lamp. It took him even longer to find the other ones.

    Those where all good laughs for everyone. Hope you like it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1) One year in school my classmates decided to prank my teacher. They put a CD player in the ceiling (it was one of those players that had a remote) and whenever the teacher started to speak the music would start to play.

    2) A friend hid in the garbage pail before class started and after the teacher came in to the room and started teaching, my friend jumped out at her.
