Pulling popcorn pranks are a great way
to test someones laugh-o-meter.
You may want to be careful though. Be
prepared just in case your prank happens to backfire on you.
Sometimes there's no telling how the prankee will react about being
pranked by a popcorn prankster. A retaliation may be on their agenda.
The thing about most awesome pranks
with popcorn is that you need to have a whole lot of popped popcorn.
But hey, it's well worth the laugh, right?

List of Fun Pranks With Popcorn
Popcorn Overflow Prank
Fill up large types of personal items
entirely full of popcorn. These can be things like cars, dressers,
closets, bedrooms, enclosed showers, or office cubicles. Then just
sit back and wait for them to open up the door as it spills out
If you have a kind heart, don't use the
buttered or flavor kinds, unless you really don't like that person I
suppose. At least keep it somewhat clean by using plain popped kettle
corn. Or else you might be the one picking up the cleaning tab.
There have numerous reports of pranks
being pulled on some professional athletes...
NBA power forward Jason Thompson of the
Sacramento Kings had his car filled with popcorn for not doing his
rookie assignments. He took it in stride as everybody enjoyed the
Kenyon Martin of the Denver Nuggets had
his white interior Range Rover filled with buttered popcorn on April
Fools Day. However, he was so irate over it that he threatened to put
hands on the person who did it.
Popcorn Over The Door Prank
This may take a little ingenuity. You
can use some sort of a container such as a bucket, cardboard box,
garbage bag, or a large bowl. You might also need some string and
some sort of a pulley system. Rig the container so that when the door
opens it will tip upside down so the popcorn dumps right on top of
the person walking through the door.
Popcorn Flavor Prank
This is quite and easy. Simply flavor
just a few popcorn pieces with something weird or crazy, then serve
it up to your special guest and watch when their face cringes in

pepper. Or crush up some sour candy into dust and sprinkle it on. You
can actually find sour flavored popcorn for sale too.

too. If they figure out that it's fake before putting it into their
mouth then it probably won't be too funny. But if they start chewing
on it then you might get a quick little chuckle. Also known as “faux
The "Thing" In The Popcorn Bowl Prank
This one is classic. Place something
out of the ordinary inside the bowl. When they go to grab a handful
of popcorn, they'll either see or feel what you placed in the bowl
and hopefully will freak out screaming like a little girl and toss
the popcorn everywhere.
You can add things like fake spiders or
reptiles. Fake body parts are a good one too. If you're really
creative, you could find a way to get something to crawl or pop up
out of the bowl. Now that should put them on edge.
