First of I'd like to suggest we keep it on the nerdy side. Things like "drop coffee cups in a river" really fall into the "horrible person" category. ;-)
One prank I actually did was stick a little piece of post-it on the bottom of a teammate's mouse, covering up the tracking camera. It took them quite a while before they figured it out. Of course I was careful and only did it on a slow day.
If developers turn coffee into code, then I feel it still fits in the realm!
That is quite the prank, did they find out it was you who had played them?
Oh I always came clean afterwards - would have been sabotage if I didnt, wouldn't it? :-D
It was an honourable pranking then! 👏
