In the runup to April Fool’s Day, we thought we’d share this diabolical-yet-harmless prank, compliments of laguna314…

“[W]hen people set their desktop to family photos or pet photos etc., I make many copies of the photo, and change a minor detail … with paint or photoshop; something small but noticeable like adding a mustache. Then I’ll set the background to point to an album of all the copies of the picture. Have it change at like 3-minute intervals so that at some point throughout the day, their background will show the mustache for 3 minutes.

Takes time for them to notice; and when they do, by they time they can point it out to someone, it’s gone!”
