2012 was a fantastic year for pranks. Remember that awesomely sassy 'Psh' joke or the adorable Mistletoe setup? We'll say it til we're blue in the face-- we love pranks! They just make life a tad bit more interesting. Now that 2013 has rolled around, we think there's no better way to welcome the year than by bringing you a whole new set of hilarious shenanigans.

It turns out parents are closeted jokesters, and they come up with some pretty funny nonsense. We're talking about fake spiders or the classic bucket full of water gets dumped on you trick. For some reason, mom and dad just made jokes 10 times funnier, because the kids are usually completely oblivious to their antics. Check out some of the best pranks committed by parents below.
