If you watch the American version of The Office
, you'll remember this hilarious exchange:
Dwight Schrute: Dammit, he put my stapler in jello again!
[Points to Michael]
Dwight Schrute: You can be a witness to this.
Jim Halpert: [eating jello] How do you know it was me?
That was the first episode I ever saw and it was enough to hook me for good. This prank really got my interest, but I have no office where I could try it out and if I did it to my husband at home, I'd probably just end up cleaning his stapler!
If you have a target in mind, or even if you're just curious about this little prank, there are some easy instructions over at instructables
. I would have imagined that it was as simple as making Jello, but there is a bit more to it than that, since Jello will melt if not refrigerated. The author has already gone through his own trial and error, so take advantage of his practice, and follow the instructions carefully. Enjoy!
