6 Times a 'Prank' Pregnancy Test Is Never Funny

Whatever happened to placing a silly, innocent whoopee cushion on  someone's chair on April Fool's Day? The latest disturbing prank trend is one that many men (and women) aren't going to find very amusing: fake pregnancy tests that always give a positive reading.Whether you choose to emerge from your bathroom holding a fake pregnancy stick that reads positive with the help of a splash of water, or want to take things one (psychotic) step further and order a prank proof of pregnancy blood test document (seriously), you're either going to give someone in your life false hope or scare the daylights out of him or her.

More from The Stir: 5 Crucial Things to Do When Faking Your Pregnancy

For that reason, we strongly advise you to practice caution before pulling a pregnancy prank. Here are 6 times when you should consider rubber spiders and snakes instead:

1. You want him to put a ring on it. We don't have to tell you how bad an idea this is, right? Attempting to trap your boyfriend so that he proposes to you by pretending you're pregnant is the description of an episode of the Maury show, and not something that should ever happen in real life.

2. You already have five kids, but want to test your husband. You've been thinking about having another baby, but aren't sure how your husband will react. You think using a prank pregnancy test is the ideal way to gauge his reaction. A better idea: ask him instead.

3. Your last baby was born three months ago. Your newborn has just started sleeping through the night, which means there is no better time to remind your husband about the torture you've just endured. I'm kidding—this is the worst time imaginable to pull this prank.

4. Your husband really wants a baby. You've been trying to conceive for months or maybe even years and nothing has happened yet. It's possible you're feeling zen about your situation, which is wonderful, but your husband may not share your ease. And he certainly won't appreciate the false hope your fake pregnancy test provides.

5. Your parents really want to be grandparents. There's something amusing about listening to our parents wax poetic about the day they'll be able to spoil their grandchildren, but creating a future generation is serious business to them. Chances are, they will not appreciate you poking fun at them for wanting to be grandparents.

6. You are a teenager trying to freak out your parents. If you're the parent of a teen, you probably don't even want to entertain the idea that your child is making out in a parked car. A pregnant teen daughter? Har, har, har?

Lmao. Yeah I admit that would be funny to test on my fiance... not sure he'd believe it because I got my tubes tied after baby #5.. I'd LOVE to see my mom's face though.

One of my son's best friends was a surprise baby... his parents are much older, with grown children.  The mom was joking with her older daughter (an adult) at April Fools and told her that she was pregnant.  Two weeks later, she was in the doctor's office with indigestion and found out she was pregnant with her youngest.  She has grandchildren older than her son...  She says she will never ever ever play another April Fools Day joke on anyone...

When my daughter was 3 months old I posted a picture of a positive pregnancy test. I thought it was hilarious and so did many others.
