Funny prank text messages

Pranking usually goes one step further than a funny text message. We’ve collected three funny text pranks, but if you want to discover more, just go to our special article on text pranks here!

Here are a few funny examples:

  • Ask one of your friends a question over text. When they’ve answered it, you immediately reply as if you’re repeating their answer in another texting conversation. This will drive them nuts!
  • If your lover is asking you to text back, you will say you can’t. They will ask why not. You will say: ‘Because I’m driving and it’s dange’. Let them hang in the air for a bit, by not returning their phone calls.
  • One of the best pranks in our book is fake subscribing someone to something ridiculous. Just pretend you’re a subscription service of daily horoscopes or facts and figures about cats, chameleons, or zebras, or whatever. And bombard your friends with hourly or daily updates about this subject. They will become desperate, we promise you that!

Frequently asked questions about funny texts

What can I say instead of LOL?

Besides 'LOL', there are many options to express laughter after reading a funny text message. Here are five alternatives for 'LOL':

  1. Haha or HAHAHA in capitals for true laughter
  2. LMAO (Laughing My Ass Off)
  3. ROFL (Rolling On the Floor Laughing)
  4. I can't stop laughing
  5. I'm cracking up

You can choose one of these expressions to express that you find something funny. Especially knowing that 'LOL' or 'Haha' can be weakened through repeated use.

Keep in mind that the above suggestions have no place in professional communication, like emails or even text messages. Use a complete phrase instead, for example: 'That's so funny'.

Why do the Japanese say WWWW?

Japanese people use 'W' to represent laughter. 'W' or 'WWW' stands for 'warai', which means laughter in Japanese. You could see it as a synonym for 'LOL' or 'Haha' in English. So when someone finds something funny, the Japanese say 'WWWW'.

The more W's, the longer the laughter, similar to 'Hahahahaha'. This is mainly used in informal contact and less common in a professional context.

What do you text when you're bored?

If you are feeling bored, then what to do? You can start a conversation with someone over text. Dependent on your mood, you can just keep yourself busy texting or sending some funny texts. Here are some examples. Pick the ingredients that you like and go have a conversation and make some fun via text.

  1. Ask how someone's day is.
  2. Suggest playing a game together, like entering a word one by one and creating funny sentences
  3. Share a funny joke or message.

If you are in a funny mood, you could also play around with someone by sending a funny anonymous text message. Check out these suggestions:

Hi, haven't heard back from you. Did you hide the evidence?

And then send another message 30 seconds later: 'Sry, wrong number'.

Or send a message about an appointment at the gynecologist.

The echo for your pregnancy is scheduled for Monday (X date) at 14:00. Hope this fits your schedule. Please confirm by contacting the hospital.
