What is one of the best prank's you have either done, or heard of someone doing. Late one night while in Iraq 05', and training the Iraqi Army, we had our medic call in from our CP. She spoke with the SFC who was the RTO that night and told him that we found out what was wrong with our radio. We had her say that it was a simple fix and we only need some "B-A eleven hundred November's and some S-T Rings" Well this guy says "stand by" and went looking. About an hour or so later he surprisingly calls us back and said that he woke up 1SG who didnt have any and that he didnt know where they were and said to check with supply. He woke up supply and went digging through the connex of course to no avail... So we told him roger and we ended the transmissions, laughing our butts off of course. Well the next morning the OIC of our group, a MAJ, walks out of his door upon our return and sternly said, "you, you and you, COME HERE, RIGHT NOW!!" Thinking the worst of it, we walked in and stood at attention. He sits down across from us and pulls out a piece of paper. It was the 1594 from the night prior showing that this idiot actually LOGGED IN the BALLOONS and STRINGS... smh he busted out laughing and we all just lost it... funniest thing ever.<br>

WWII Historic Prank: Sarcastically Bombing Fake Airfields With Fake Bombs

With World War II raging in Europe, the Germans were fighting a losing battle. They needed to look more powerful than they actually were, so they came up with an ingenious solution: build a bunch of fake airfields out of wooden decoys. It's not as stupid as it sounds; a good fake can look just like the real thing from 30,000 feet.

But in fact, the Allies soon realized that all of those airfields, complete with runways, fake aircraft, and buildings, were nothing more than elaborate props that could be defeated by an army of termites. The only thing left was to figure out the best way to let the Germans know that they weren't fooling anyone (in the most sarcastic way possible).

So the Allies flew bombing raids over these fake wooden airfields, presumably sending the German fake (wooden?) ground crews scrambling for cover. After several intense minutes in which nothing happened, the Germans finally realized what the Allies were doing: They were dropping fake wooden bombs on them.

Just to make it absolutely clear to the Germans what was going on, many of these bombs had the phrase "Wood for Wood" painted on them. Yes, what the military calls "psychological warfare," the rest of us call "being a smartass."

Back when we were still wearing BDUs we had a fresh Private (E1) standing off by himself in one of the classrooms listening in to all the other soldiers laughing and telling stories about previous deployments. One of the older Corporals looked over at the Private and asked him where his rank was on his collar. The Private stated he didn't have any rank because he was only an E1. The Corporal lead him to believe that there were sew on camo squares that E1s were supposed to wear in place of their rank so they could be easily identified. Needless to say, the Private spent the next two hours arguing with the Supply Sergeant about how he really needed his camo patches before he gave up.
