Living with other people certainly has its benefits. You'll never feel lonely (even if you want to), you'll always have somebody to talk to (even if they don't want to), and you get to share the chores (even though there are usually at least twice as many of them). But as you can see from this hilarious list of roommate pranks compiled by Bored Panda, living with other people can also have its downside. From clowns in the toilet and sharks in the bath to Cling Wrapped beds and gift-wrapped bedrooms, the practical jokes you can find below will remind you that living with people can result in some of the best - or the worst - years of your life.

When i returned from a home visit once i took my mannequin "Bruce" with me. He is huge and black (no offence). I placed him right behind the entrance door and when my housemate returned in the middle of the night it scared the shit out of him. I woke up from him screaming like a lunatic. For a second i felt really bad but then we laughed both so hard. Good times...

Hahahahaha. Nothing more awkward than setting off security alarms but setting off every single one must have been so embarrassing :D
