They Pranked Me When I Was Younger, Now Easter Is The Perfect Holiday To Get Back At My Older Siblings

Growing up, I never liked Easter. Let me explain.

Because I was the youngest, my older relatives took turns pranking me in ways that may or may not have caused irreversible psychological damage. Other times, they just

One year my sister convinced me that chocolate I’d eaten from a plastic egg was candy she’d found in the trash.

Hilarious, right? I spent the whole day sick to my stomach, thinking I was going to die from food poisoning.

Well, now that I’m older and my sister has children, I’ve learned to appreciate the fine art of revenge.

Pranking my sobrinas is my favorite thing to do on Easter. And best of all, my sister gets payback for all the trauma she caused me all those years ago. Here’s a taste of some of my favorite pranks to pull off. Here are a few pranks I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of over the last few years.

My favorite thing to do is hide rubber snakes near my sobrinas plastic Easter eggs.

When they go to pick up an egg, they catch a glimpse of one of these bad boys and run off screaming. Yeah, this one is cruel, but kids should have a healthy fear of snakes anyway. So if you think about it, I’m actually helping them out. Plus it’s hilarious to watch my sister try to calm them down.

Tootsie rolls can be used for good or evil…

With a little elbow grease and some artistic license, something as tasty as a tootsie roll can be turned into a parents worst nightmare. I relished the look of horror on my sister’s face as she watched her kids eat what she thought was… just look at the gif.

Swapping ingredients in a Cadbury Creme Egg can get some solid prank results.

Is there anything more delicious than biting into a creamy Cadbury Egg? Yeah, there is. Revenge. Just swap out the creme in the egg for something less tasty, like mayo.

Super glue makes plastic Easter eggs impossible to open.

I spent the night before carefully super gluing each plastic egg shut so that no matter how hard my nieces and nephews tried, the eggs wouldn’t open. I told them the candy inside was “totally worth it.” Eventually they just stomped on the eggs to crack them open, only to find I’d hidden mazapan inside, which had been turned into powder.

Then there was that time I left a ransom note in the eggs, telling them that the Easter Bunny had been kidnapped.

Yeah, I kind of feel guilty about this one, but it was totally worth it. My sister spent a handful of hours consoling her distraught kids. But even after she finally got them to calm down, I had another plan. I had a carton of milk in the fridge with a “missing bunny” photo printed on the side.

So just remember, if everyone picks on you cause you’re the youngest in the family, one day you’ll be able to clap back like thunder.

And not just on Easter, every holiday is a great chance to get back at your older brother’s and sisters.

And don’t feel bad for my sobrinas…

Former NFL Star Aaron Hernandez Gets Emotional After Not Guilty Verdict

Former NFL Star Aaron Hernandez Gets Emotional After Not Guilty Verdict

WFXT / Fox News

Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, who is currently serving a life sentence for murder, was found not guilty of murdering two men after a nightclub dispute in 2012. After hearing the verdict, Hernandez looked emotional as he hugged members of his defense team.

During the trial, prosecutors said Hernandez killed the two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, after one of the men spilled a drink on Hernandez at a nightclub. Hernandez’s friend, Alexander Bradley, testified against him and said he was with Hernandez during the nightclub dispute. Bradley also claimed he was driving Hernandez’s SUV when former NFL star fired five shots at the two men, who were in another vehicle next to them. Bradley testified that Hernandez shot him in the face to keep him quiet about the incident.

The jury, however, apparently did not find Bradley’s testimony credible. Defense attorneys said Bradley’s previous criminal history made him an unreliable witness. Bradley, who is currently in prison for an unrelated nightclub shooting, also made a deal to get immunity in exchange for testifying against Hernandez, which may have led the jury to believe he was not being completely honest.

Hernandez’s attorneys say it was Bradley, not Hernandez, who killed the two men.

Of the eight charges Hernandez was on trial for, he was only found guilty of unlawful possession of a gun. He was sentenced to additional 5 years for the crime, to be served after life sentence.

Although Hernandez is serving life in prison without parole for the murder of his friend, Odin Lloyd, defense attorney Ronald Sullivan told CNN this case was still important to Hernandez: “He was charged for something somebody else did, and that is a weighty burden for anyone to shoulder.”

Here is footage of Hernandez learning the verdict:
