The Top Ten
1 Is Mister Wall there? No. How about Misses Wall? No. Then what's holding up your ceiling?

This is really funny, and for a second, I thought it would be dumb and stupid, but this was really good! Y'all should also try the "It's Over" prank. It's where you call a random person and say that it's over and start talking about your wedding. I tried it. Laugh out loud!

Laugh out loud, obviously a good one. Try to get some numbers, then just start saying the prank. I wonder what someone's reaction will be - so much laughter in this prank!

My friend and I did this prank call, and the guy just played along, saying, Yeah, I will put Mr. Wall on. As soon as we hung up, we burst out laughing.

This is really funny. My cousins and I did this, and we couldn't finish it. We all were laughing too hard at the end. And the fact that most people hung up on hello.

2 Say "Hi this is Jenny from 31 Flavors, if you can name 31 Flavors in 31 seconds you can win 31 thousand dollars, ready go!" super fast and peppy.

Oh my Jesus, so my friends and I did this to our band teacher, right? He just hung up as expected, so we brushed it off. But about fifteen minutes later, another band classmate called back and played along with our teacher for a good 45 minutes. The classmate also named easily over 31 flavors. What? We don't know what we got ourselves into.

This is amazing. I called a random person and said that, and they started screaming. Then they got really mad because they beat the challenge. I think she was an ice cream freak. Then I told her to go to Shiver Shack and claim her money there. And it worked.

This is so funny. This was our conversation: "Hello, this is Jenny from 31 Flavors. If you could name the 31 flavors in 31 seconds, then you could win 31 thousand dollars. Ready, set, go!" (They named all the flavors.) "Now, where's my money?" "Go to Maggie Moo's and ask for the 31,000 dollars there under the name of Gertrude Tahalia." "I thought you were 31 Flavors?" "Toodles!" (In a very peppy voice.) Then I hung up.

I did this with one friend, and they actually completed the challenge. Did you know there's a new one? Hi, it's Tim from 31 Flavours. You've won two tonnes of ice cream, and it's being transported to your house. It will arrive in two minutes, then hang up.

3 Why did you hang up on me?

My friend and I did this to a restaurant, and the guy who answered took seven minutes to tell me that I was beautiful and wasn't worth the guy who "hung up on me." It was so cute, and then he said that I sound beautiful and to call back with any more problems of mine. That made our day.

I might as well do this. It sounds really funny and believable. My grandma deserves it because she always hangs up the phone on people, even family, for no reason!

This prank call idea is great because you can let your emotions run wild!

I did it, and the woman said, No, no. Don't cry! I'm sorry. I just don't know you. Then, I blew a horn into the phone, and he screamed. But then I hung up and blocked my number.

4 Ask for some random person and then hang up when you are told you have the wrong number. Call back later with a disguised accent, and say you're [insert name used earlier] and ask if there are any messages for you.

I did this, and this is how it went.

Me: Hey, is this Marc?
Them: Um, no, sorry.
Me: Okay, well, if Marc picks up, please tell him I ordered shrimp with anchovies and clam soup. Okay?
Them: Uh, well, sure?
Me: Thank you so much!

5 minutes later

Me (English accent): Hello, is this Cam?
Them: No! You have the wrong number!
Me: Excuse me, I'm Marc. Any messages for me?
Them: Er, well, yeah, this guy said he ordered shrimp with anchovies and clam soup, so...
Me: THANK YOU. Did he mention anything about the body?
Them: Body? No. *hangs up*

Laugh out loud!

This one is fun, but don't hang up when they tell you that you have the wrong number. Leave a message anyways. Say something like, "Well, if you see [FAKE NAME], tell him..." and then make up something random and weird. It's hilarious. Sometimes they actually pass the message on.

This is what happened with me.
Me: Hi, Jacob!
Person: I'm not Jacob.
Me: Ok, if Jacob calls, tell him that I ordered rice and beans with Kentucky Fried Chicken. I'm Freeda, by the way.

Ten minutes later:
Me (in an Australian accent): Hey, Freeda, mate.
Person: You have the wrong number.
Me: Oh, sorry mate, did my mate Freeda give you any messages?
Person: Oh yeah, she said that she ordered rice, beans, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Laugh out loud, that was so funny. Someone tell the genius who came up with this that he is awesome.

I did this, but they were like, Why would you be calling this number? Then I said, Because I do. Have a problem with that? They responded, Well, no problem, really. I said, Alright then. Good day, sir. He said, Okay, I guess. Uh, bye. It was hilarious!

5 Claim you are doing a survey and then ask random and hilarious questions.

Okay, that should be good, I'd really like to try that. Like ask things such as this:
"What color is your refrigerator? "
"Is your room colorful with many ponies and unicorns? "
And the best, "Will you marry me?" Then, hang up.

I am definitely going to try this. The reactions I'm going to get are going to be hilarious! I think I'll make a game out of it and see how many random questions I can ask before they hang up.

Here are a few ideas for questions:

- Do you believe in Santa Claus?
- Can you fly?
- Do you own a unicorn?
- Does your cat talk?
- Will you be my boyfriend? (works even better if the victim is a girl)
- Can you puke up anchovies?
- Where do you hide the bodies of your victims?

That is really funny, and I think it should be number one instead. I am going to try this one right now. Thanks for the great ideas, and I will use this site again next time too.

6 Ask if they will confirm their order of exotic Mexican dancers for a bachelor party.

Me: Hi, It's Mike, I just wanted to confirm my order for exotic Mexican dancers at my friend's bachelor party.
Person: Um, I think you have the wrong number.
Me: Oh I'm so sorry! Goodbye!

One minute later...

(ringing the same number back)
Me: Hi, It's Mike, I just wanted to confirm my order for exotic Mexican dancers at my friend's bachelor party.
Person: You again? Look, I don't have time for this!
Me: Of course you have time, Mexican dancing is very simple! I'll teach you if you like!
Person: Is this a prank call?
Me: Prank call! How could you be so rude! I am calling to confirm my order for exotic Mexican-
Person: I get it. Bye!

We laughed so hard! Funniest thing ever!

I used this as a text, and my cousin kept texting me numbers. I pretended to be a clerk named Kevin looking to complete Sarah Howard's dance order. It was insane.

I called someone and had a similar prank. Instead, I replaced the Mexican dancers with strippers. That guy was mad at me since he got married yesterday.

Nice, I may just change it a little bit, but it sounds HILARIOUS. I will definitely try it out sometime!

7 Hmm, yes I ordered a pizza an hour ago and I want to know when it's coming.

Hilarious! I tried this, and the girl on the other end got super mad and kept trying to tell me that the person I had called was not the pizza company. But I kept telling her she was kidding or that she should stop lying. It was so funny!

I did this on a Taco Bell employee, but I'm not very good at it, so he just said, "Thank you for calling Taco Bell. Have a wonderful day." At least he was nice about it.

VERY FUNNY. I did it on a person, and he was like, Um... I thought I was going to die!

Cool, so cool. I mean, really, so cool.

8 Where do babies come from?

I used this on an old lady with an English accent, and here's how it went:

Me: Hi, is this my mom?
Lady: No, you got the wrong number.
Me: Oh, okay. But first, can I ask you a question?
Lady: Umm, okay...
Me: Where do babies come from?
Lady: You should know that by now, *hangs up*

I was dying of laughter!

I called Speedway and sounded like a British little girl. I asked, "Daddy, where do babies come from? I can't sleep without knowing." He played along, and it was hilarious. I even said, "I love you, Daddy," before I hung up.

I said, "Help, I need to know where babies come from before my honeymoon." They said, "Sorry, ask your wife, don't call me."

This was amazing. She kept saying hello, and as soon as it was asked, she just stopped talking. Definitely trying this one again!

9 Say "You are the weakest link" and hang up.

You: You are the weakest link. <hang up>
Person: What?
That would be VERY confusing for the victim. It's also SUPER RANDOM! By the way, if you are reading this, you are the weakest link.

I've GOT to try that. It's really funny. I can just imagine what the person will do when they get that call (probably confusion).

Laugh out loud, I pranked my friend with that, and the next day she was crying because she didn't want to be the weakest link!

Haha, Doctor Who reference? "I bloody love you!" I just watched that episode. By the way, that episode rocks.

10 Use a real bad Chinese accent and say "we sell egg rolls! $20 for one egg roll! Egg rolls! egg rolls! You buy egg roll or we hunt you down!"

"We sell egg rolls! $20 for one egg roll! Egg rolls! Egg rolls! You buy an egg roll, or we will hunt you down to the end of the earth!" That sounds better.

And then customs in Hong Kong will hunt you down. It's not really a good one, but still funny.

Ha, ha, ha, this is a very entertaining prank phone call. I don't think it's too racist or stereotypical. - From Stephen Hawking.

This one totally made me laugh out loud. Just imagining a voice on the phone with that Chinese accent, speaking quickly and saying, "EGGROLL! EGGROLL! We'll hunt you DOWN!" That just makes me really want to try this.

The Contenders
11 Hi this is Radio Disney, you just won 3 tickets to see One Direction Live at (insert Stadium). You just need to answer this survey in order to win. Are you ready to start? [Hang up]

Lol. I called one in Compton, California, and said, "Hi, this is Radio Disney. You've just won 3 tickets to see One Direction live at Everbank Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida. You just need to answer this survey to win. Are you ready?" He said, "Um, no. I'm more of a punk rock guy. If you have any My Chemical Romance or Panic at the Disco tickets, give me a call." I said, "But sir, you won 3 tickets." He said, "I don't care."

This is such a good one. I tried it, and the teen was so fun too - screaming and everything! One thing: maybe say 4 tickets instead of 3 because real concerts don't sell tickets in threes.

What I would do if they agree to take the survey is ask them questions like "Have you ever...?" My final question would be, "Have you ever been prank-called?" Then I'd hang up.

People get so excited. I just talked with someone's parents about their concert! These teens are so happy! Laughing out loud!

12 Call McDonald's and say "Hi I'm stuck in one of your toilets and need help getting out because I'm a paraplegic" then yell "HURRY UP MY CHEESEBURGER IS GOING COLD"

This one was so hilarious! :) I spoke in a panicky voice, and the lady who answered said she would help and be right there. I then hung up, paralyzed with laughter. After some time, I considered pretending that I was getting mugged in their bathroom but thought better of it, as they might end up calling the police. I decided not to take the risk. :( But you people have GOT to try this one!

I did this, and he said, Call me when you find your mom. So I called back and said I found her, but he never came back. I think the guy was trying to offend white people. Needless to say, he hung up.

I did this to Olive Garden, and they sent someone over.

I called, and the lady said, "Ok, I'm coming to get you now!" Then she hung up quickly.

13 Is your refrigerator running? Yes. Well you better go and catch it.

I think that the first nine are better because everybody knows this one. I got an idea: Call two random people and leave your phones there until they hang up. The two people will be confused because they think that one called the other. I forgot where I got that from, but it is funny.

It worked on my mum she totally fell for it and I think people need to be less rude on here. Seriously, people don't want your crap all over this webpage. We get it if you're having a horrible day but there's no need to take it out on others, okay?! And the joke actually works really well, keep up the good work!

Ask if it's running, and they'll think, "I've heard this one before," so they'll say no. Then you say, "Well, I'm from Sears. I'll be right over if you could just give me your address."

I did this one. Even if everyone knows it, the reaction can be really funny!

14 Call a business and start screaming in a horrible accent, "I've came here 20 times and manager told me that I could get coupon and I didn't get coupon and I have such sad life and whyyyyy!" (sob sob)

I tried this once. The lady also had an accent, but she had no clue what I was saying. We started yelling at her for a coupon for the salon.

Cracked up at this one.

This one is so funny.

15 Call Petsmart and when they answer, say 'Hear me roar like a mountain lion!', then try to to it.

We said, Hear me roar like a mountain, and she said, WHAT! We tried to say it again, but we couldn't stop laughing.

I said the same thing, except I made another sound:

Me: Hear me roar like a mountain! Meow.
The person: What...

If I do this, I mean it's worth it, but if I prank call PetSmart, I will get in a lot of trouble.

16 Call a hotel in Hawaii with bad ratings and ask questions about their rooms, like how many they have and the types of beds and stuff.

Call someone and say, I got my period and I don't know what to do. I really need you.

I live in Hawaii, so this one's great!

17 Call a random number and pretend you are Siri

The best thing is that when you do call, they look down at their phone and realize it's not actually Siri! (I did this about 20 feet away from a person.)

This is the best.

18 Hey, it's Jennifer. I left my super duper maxi pads at your house. If you could return them, that would be great. I have major leakage. Thanks.

My sister, her friend, and I were calling random businesses, and then finally, Sam's Club answered.

Sam's Club: "Hello? How may we serve you today?"
My sister: "Um, hi, it's Jennie. I left my Super Duper Maxi pads at your store, and I was wondering if you could try to find them for me."

Then Sam's Club said, "One moment, please. We'll try to find them." We were on hold for the next few minutes, and then the lady who answered said, "Sorry, WHAT?" And then we hung up.

I have so got to try this one. Even though I'm a guy, this would be hilarious! So, I'm calling random people tonight. HAHA!

I'm trying it. That's going to be so funny. I have tried this, and I hope you enjoy it. In a weird, hard-to-understand accent, say, Hello, is Marc there? But don't pause. Keep talking. Tell him he can't keep leaving his pants at my house. My boyfriend or husband almost noticed. I'll see you tonight, and forget your pants on your way over.

This prank works really well. My friend and I pranked someone using this, and they actually played along!

19 Call a pizza shop and when they answer, say, "your pizza burned the tongue right off my daughter, you jerk you better pay for a new one!" and hang up.
20 Hi it's Stacy from fat zap would you like me to zap your fat away? Do you have any questions on this process?

I tried it. It was so funny! Here's how it went:

Me: Hi! It's Stacy from Fat Zap. Would you like me to zap away your fat?
Person: Uh... well, that would be amazing, but -
Me: Great! Ready? 3, 2, 1, and... Abra Kadabra Alakazam! Zap!
Me: You have officially lost 23 pounds!
Person: Uh, well... great...
Me: Great indeed! For further information on what this is, please visit!

I did this to a person, and this is how it went (I used a different name because I am male).

Me: Hello, this is Alex from Fat Zap. Would you like me to zap your fat away? Do you have any questions about this process?
Other Person, who is actually a child: No thanks, I am underweight for my age. (Hangs up.)

This child said it so quickly and calmly that I was puzzled when he hung up.

Laugh out loud, so funny! I have to do this!

Tried it on this guy, and he said, Sure, that would be great. How gullible can you get? Laugh out loud!

21 Call a random guy and say "children in the backseat cause accidents! Accidents in the backseat cause children!" then hang up.

This is actually funny.

That's the best one ever.

You are an accident.

22 Say 'I can't hear you' until they hang up.
23 Call a random number and start singing happy birthday!

I tried this, and the lady almost sounded sorry for me.

Me: Happy birthday to you... happy birthday to you-
Her: Oh-
Me: Happy birthday dear Katy, happy birthday to you!
Her: Oh, I'm so sorry, sweetie. I hate to tell you that I'm not Katie.
Me: You're not? Where is she? Are you her mother?
Her: Um, no... This is Samantha. I think you may have the wrong number. I'm so, so sorry. What number did you call?
Me: Oh, um, you know what, I'll just go back and look again.
(I completely forgot the number I dialed)
Her: Okay, honey. I hope you find Katy! Have a nice day!

I apparently called a hospital, and she said thanks and all, but I heard her yell, "SECURITY!" Then I hung up.

The funniest prank call idea ever!

24 Did I leave my clothes in your bedroom?

Okay, so I did this, and this older guy answered. He sounded so serious. Here's how it went:

"Hey love, did I leave my clothes over last night?"

"Yeah babe, you should probably come get them before my wife comes back."

I nearly lost my cool, not knowing what to say. I was semi-shocked.

I did this and the guy just played along, saying I did. I told him I'm going to call him tomorrow to come and pick it up. Then I started hinting that we would have sex when I come over. It was pretty funny that he played along the whole time.

I hate that joke.

This is amazing. I did it on my boy best friend, and he had the massive shock of his life.

25 Call McDonald's and ask "Is this the Krusty Krab?"

This one is bae! I did this to 4 different McDonald's, and they all got super mad and said, "No, this is McDonald's," and hung up on me. It works if you call the same one multiple times.

No, this is Patrick.

Me: Hi, is this the Krusty Krab?
Person: Yes, it is.
Me: Is SpongeBob there?
Person: No, he's off right now.
Then I hung up. That woman was awesome.
