October 21 'Doomsday': The best pranks to pull when the world doesn't end

The world probably won't end tonight! When it doesn't, how should you make fun of the people who thought it would?

 

We're still here... again. Harold Camping's third attempt to predict the Rapture-- surprise-- failed. After that embarrassing May 21 debacle, Camping was still determined to name a date for the end of the world. That date, people, is today. Arms? Check. Legs? Check. World? Check. Yep, still here!

 

We came up with these fun pranks to pull back in May when the world didn't end and, luckily, they're just as relevant today!

 

Meanwhile, we will continue to wait with bated breath for Camping's next prediction...

 


»Tie bunches of skin colored balloons together in roughly human-sized forms. Release them into the sky at 6 p.m. sharp.


»Assemble piles of empty "left behind" clothes on the sidewalk. (h/t Reddit)


»Run around tonight in a raptor costume, making people wonder if they've been mishearing things all week.


»At 6, get a bunch of friends and all start stumbling around as if there really is an earthquake.


»Walk around tomorrow with "666" written on your forehead. When people ask you what that's about, be like "Oh, you haven't met The Beast yet? Weird."


»Don't show up for work on Monday. Don't answer your phone, send texts, tweet or reply to email. By 5, people will be thinking you were the only person they know to get Raptured.


»Become a serious reporter. Set up a high-profile interview with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Accuse of being the Antichrist. When he gets mad, blame the misunderstanding on Kirk Cameron.


»Show up to a house party tonight. Put on R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World as We Know it." Chuckle with your friends. Play it again immediately after, and watch their faces fall. Then play it again after that. Play it for two hours straight! At the end of the two hours, tell that that was God punishing them for making fun of the Rapture.


How will you prank the Rapture folks?
