It could have been the time my buddies and I etherized one of our pals. Then, while he was unconscious, we amputated his right leg from the knee down. When he came to, we all had quite the chuckle. He still has it mounted above his mantle. But alas no, I don't think that is the best prank I've ever seen.
Perhaps it was the time we reversed the transmission box in my other pals car so he thought he was in reverse but he was really in drive. The dingo ate a baby and then put his car right through his garage into his house where we were all waiting to have a chuckle with him. That was good, but again perhaps not the best prank ever.
I think the most perfect prank ever has to go to me. I faked my own death as chute-didn't-open-skydiving-accident. As you might imagine their wasn't much for my parents to identify:what looked like a pile of bile and a deer smear from meeting the front end of a semi. The funeral was closed container as that was about all the space "I" occupied at the time. I did attend, dressed as Colonel Sanders anachronistic long lost lover; it was terse tears, exquisite eulogies, the prevailing preferred parade. About two weeks later I snuck into my parents house during dinner, pounced in through the window and shrieked "Surprise!". My mom jumped up then fainted knocking herself out on the table on the way down. My dad just slumped over. The coroner would in time inform us his death was caused by a heart attack. I like to think he still appreciated the antic. I think when my mom wakes up from her coma, she will agree it was a pretty perfect prank.
