 LOL...I would do that to myself with it not being April Fools. 

Oh that is just MEAN!!! 

 Those are some good ones; sure hope no one I know reads this!

"Recalibrate their diopter"


These are utterly pathetic.

Glue an SD card to the floor.

Reversing thier batteries in flash units might become a costly prank!

I always crank up the ISO to max, but adjusting the diopter is something new :-)

Call your boss or supervisor an hour into an event and tell them ur lost and cant find the venue. They HATE that :).
