With a myriad of hilarious options, disappearing ink provides loads of laughs on any given day. Invite a coworker into your cube and “accidentally” ruin his shirt with ink.

Is your office so boring that it would take a jolt of electricity to liven the place up? The answer is here!

With a push of this stapler, a zap will shoot through your coworker’s hand and you and any witnesses will get a good hardy laugh. Just remember Prank Karma and keep your eyes peeled for any suspicious looking office supplies going forward! $7.99 from ZUG.com.Visit Susan Jennings on Google+
