These people love trolling others. They find it entertaining to upset others for their own amusement. In other words, they are total smart-alecks. Although their pranks may upset the victim, we have to admit that their jokes are pretty funny.
Check out 52 times people pulled a sarcastic prank on others and you’ll be sure to find yourself laughing too.
1. Yearbook Jokers
The yearbook committee asked the student what quote she wanted to be listed under her name. She said she didn’t want one. Unfortunately, that became her quote.
2. Dealing In Absolutes
There is no middle ground in Star Wars. It’s funny but true. You are either on the side of good or on the side of darkness.
3. Delicious Coins
The humans put a sign on the vending machine letting people know that it was eating quarters and dimes. However, the machine had its own smart-aleck response.
4. Titanic Meme
The meme shows the scene from the movie Titanic where Jack and Rose have to say goodbye. It’s a beautiful and emotional moment. Although, one commenter had to ruin it.
5. No Soup For You
This security question showed up on a Ticketmaster purchase. It’s a funny Seinfeld reference from the soup Nazi episode. The person who wrote the question is definitely a fan.
6. Smart-Aleck GPS
This person’s GPS played a joke on them by accident. They were stuck in traffic and going so slow that it asked them if they wanted to switch to pedestrian mode. It was a big slap in the face.
7. Sharp Knife Warning
Everyone knows that knives are sharp. Adding a label on one that says they are designed to be sharp is just some designer being a jokester. However, we suppose that it will help prevent potential lawsuits too.
8. Correct Answer
Answers.com sometimes gives some pretty funny answers. Mercutio was a character in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Who is responsible for the character’s death? The person who wrote the play, of course.
9. Fingerprint Reading
What do your fingerprints say about you? This graphic intends to answer that question. The conclusions it comes to are pretty enlightening.
10. Dr. Hedgehog
It’s a classic game of catch me if you can. The smart-aleck kept adding an “og” to the end of Dr. Hedgeh’s name. It got the doctor really worked up.
11. Smooth Line
Someone attached a pick-up line to the sign for the pick-up line. It’s both cheesy and hilarious. It definitely made us laugh a little bit.
12. Every Day Is The Same
Some renegade employee at Netflix made it so that the movie Groundhog Day kept showing up as a recommendation over and over again. It’s like the movie just kept repeating itself (that is the actual plot of the movie).
13. Drawing Tips
It turns out, drawing a rose or a head of lettuce is easier than we thought. According to this artist, they are just the same thing painted different colors. Besides that, the two are essentially interchangeable.
14. Outbidding The Reward
This is certainly one way to get a cheap iPod touch. It’s a pretty intelligent idea. Although, it’s definitely highly unethical.
15. Bathroom Cleaning
The intention of the note was to make sure that the bathroom was sparkling clean and fit for a queen. However, this person took it literally. They made sure the Queen of England would feel right at home.
16. Reset The Clock
Sarcasm is a big problem in this office. Everyone is always cracking jokes and playing pranks instead of working. Even the sign about sarcasm itself isn’t off-limits.
17. Wet Floor Sign
The sign is at least somewhat accurate. Everything underneath it is very wet. However, technically, it isn’t actually a floor. The janitor is going to have to fish the sign out of the pool now.
18. Electric Car
If you drive a fancy electric car, oil is pretty much a joke. It’s unnecessary. This guy decided to rub it in everyone else’s faces that he was different (better) than them.
19. Mystery Book Selection
A prankster at this Barnes and Noble turned every book on the mystery shelf backward. It’s happening at bookstores and libraries all across the world. Lots of places have bookshelves that are falling victim to this prank.
20. Creative Bike Rack
Technically, they obeyed the sign’s request. The railing is off-limits, but what about the sign pole itself? There is no mention of that.
21. Nice Try
This would have been a lot funnier if the person didn’t acknowledge that they knew their dad was actually referring to a calendar. Hanging up a colander now just makes them look like a jerk.
22. Thanks From Tom Hanks
If you put a period after the “T” in the work thanks, it looks like an abbreviation of the name Tom Hanks. That’s what this troll did. He also put a picture of the actor there to make his point clear.
23. Prom Fail
Rejection is painful. This man thought he could get around the possibility of a no by limiting the choices for answers on his note. However, the woman still found a way to make her feelings known.
24. Fence Advertisement
It turns out if you want to advertise on this fence, calling for permission is just a formality. Not everyone takes it seriously. Some people just do whatever they want.
25. Green Vehicles
The parking space is supposed to be reserved for people driving vehicles that don’t run on gas. However, if your vehicle is painted green, technically, that still meets the requirements. Albeit, in a more roundabout way.
26. Different Meanings
The word “ushers” refers to the employees who show people to their seats at an event. However, it could also refer to the singer Usher. We wonder which interpretation is correct?
27. Posting Bills
Post no bills is another way of saying post no notices. However, that’s only one interpretation. The other is that you shouldn’t post pictures of people named Bill.
28. Fake Entrance
If you don’t read the fine print, you might find yourself looking a little silly. It’s because it’s not really a door. No matter whether you try to push or pull, it’s not going to open.
29. Yes, Indeed
Nothing about this joke makes a whole lot of sense, however, it’s still hilarious. Only upper-class British people use the word quite. That’s what the man with a monocle and top hat is implying.
30. Small Upcharge
It’s not often that you get charged an additional 25 cents for being a smart-aleck. However, for this customer, that’s exactly what happened. Let’s hope that they learned their lesson.
31. Clever Label
This coffee mug label is pretty normal… for the most part. The line at the end giving instructions on how to use it is a little funny though. “For best results, use other side,” it reads.
32. Sarcastic Siri
Here we have another example of Siri being sarcastic. She can be very hilarious. If there was a robot comedian award, she would win it.
33. Friend Zone
Unfortunately, cans just aren’t attracted to this prankster. He has tried plenty of times to date them, but they always reject him. It’s a pity.
34. Unstable Ladder
The person in charge of putting up the sign decided to get a little creative with it. It’s supposed to say unstable. However, they fell before they could finish it.
35. Computer Smart-Aleck
Siri can troll just as good as some of the humans can. She is so sarcastic. That’s what this conversation proves.
36. Cute Seal
There are multiple meanings of the word seal. Since the new picture was added to the emergency door release, no one has dared to remove it. It’s pretty goofy.
37. True Saying
This fortune cookie didn’t try to sugarcoat things with some meaningless platitude. It got straight to the point — you love Chinese food. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be eating it.
38. Pursuit Of Freedom
Even over text message, it’s possible to be a smart-aleck. In fact, sometimes it’s easier. There are a million different ways to manipulate the meanings of things that people say.
39. Tough Decision
This vending machine sure knows how to be sarcastic. It has the message “decisions, decisions” on it, yet, the machine only offers water. We wonder which option we should pick.
40. Random Wall Placard
Placards are supposed to have a purpose. However, this one was made as a total joke. It starts out okay, but never really gets around to saying anything important.
41. Half Eaten
“I told my 5-year-old he could watch TV as soon as he ate half of his hot dog,” the dad explained. The kid is a huge smart-aleck. He ate exactly half.
