Who says work is dull? Office employees reveal how their prankster colleagues have lightened the mood
A day without humour in the office can be a long one, and a few pranksters can go a long way in keeping spirits high.
Now people from around the world have shared the workplace pranks that have lightened the mood – with the very best collated in a gallery by Parent Influence.
One photo shows an office filled to the brim with colourful balls, while another trickster put a note on a coffee machine that claimed it was voice activated, and sat back while their workmates scratched their heads.
