We know New Yorkers use Seamless during blizzards. Turns out, they also use it to pull pranks on April Fools’ Day.

From substituting white rice for pancakes to asking for a side of Cheez Whiz, people found plenty of totally disgusting creative ways to prank their friends this year using the food delivery app. Seamless collected its users’ craziest special instructions from April 1, and kindly passed said list along to the Observer.

We must admit, some of these are pretty funny. Though we pity the kitchen staff who had to assemble a massive sandwich overflowing with tuna salad (inspired by The Kroll Show?) so some idiot could prank his friend.

  • Attn: Nikki—Per our chat, please have the cook put a softball-sized amount of tuna between two pieces of bread. It should look ridiculous and funny. 😉 If you’d like me to order three sandwiches, just let me know.
  • This is for an April Fools’ prank. I need an excessive amount of tuna on this sandwich. I will pay for two sandwiches if necessary. Just really need a lot of tuna on the sandwich.
  • On the inside of the pizza box can you write, “You make my heart beat faster and slower at the same time.” And draw flowers and hearts and write it is over 9000!
  • Cheez Whiz on the side
  • If possible, please substitute white rice for pancakes

Some of the orders were so bizarre, it seems as though the users were actually pranking the restaurants. Or maybe these people are just freaks about their food.

  • PLEASE INCLUDE A FEW OF THE SAUCES. ONE DIABLO IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS MUCH FOOD AND I STRESS MYSELF BUDGETING IT. PRETEND THIS IS TWO SEPARATE ORDERS AND PUT THAT MUCH SAUCE ON SIDE. THANK YOU
  • TWO PIECES OF CHEESE, sometimes you forgetTWO PIECES OF CHEESE, sometimes you forgetTWO PIECES OF CHEESE, sometimes you forgetPLEASE TOAST, PLEASE TOAST, PLEASE TOAST, sometimes you forget
