Sick of coworkers or roommates stealing your food from the fridge? This totally creepy prank should scare them off... unless you live and work with cannibals, that is. Then you have a very different kind of problem.

The instructions for creating this epic stunt, posted on DIY site Instructables by user Mikeasaurus, are cheap and fairly simple, provided you have access to a large jar, a camera and decent photo editing software (and know how to use it).

The instructions explain how to use the photo editor to combine multiple pics of your head – or anyone's head, for that matter – into a composite flat image, which should then be waterproofed by laminating (this can be done at a printing shop). The distorting effect of the water, combined with the curvature of the jar, creates the optical illusion of a three-dimensional head. Green food coloring will give the water a formaldehyde tint, completing the macabre effect.

Mikeasaurus suggests putting the jar in the fridge, hidden behind some other items to amplify the shock factor. For added nastiness, he even throws in a couple of boiled eggs.

You know, this might be the perfect prank to pull in Vernon, Florida – otherwise known as the “Dismemberment Capital of the US.” Uh... then again, maybe not.
