Download a broken screen app and make phones or tablets look like they’re broken.



Freak your Mum out by putting tomato sauce in your mouth and then coughing into a tissue. But for the sake of your mother’s sanity, don’t let the joke go on too long.

For a birthday, wrap up something they already own and give it to them.



Catch your family doing some massive farts with this whoopee cushion or pocket fart gun.
