22 hilarious pranks that will make you think twice about sharing a house

Living in a shared household can be great.  There's always someone to talk to and financially it can be advantageous.  The problem is we don't always know what we're letting ourselves in for and can wake up one day to find we have the 'Housemate from Hell' or, as in this case, find ourselves in 'Prankster Central'!
