Is THIS the meanest engagement prank of all time?

The internet has been flooded with engagement stories recently; from the guy who proposed every single day for a year, to the man who enlisted the help of his two daughters in asking his girlfriend’s hand in marriage, it’s all been very lovely.

Very lovely and, you know, a bit of a kick in the teeth for all those people still heading out on awkward blind dates once a fortnight.

So, in our opinion, it’s about time that we had a good hard dose of utterly hilarious relationship realism.

Enter Redditor 'griffunk’, who, knowing she would at some point be putting socks in his sock drawer on laundry day, popped a ring box in there for his girlfriend to find.

Guessing correctly that her urge to see if it was an engagement ring would prove overwhelming, he left an extra-special Post-It note for her to find.

It read simply: "LOL, JK."

*Carrie Bradshaw knows a thing or two about Post-Its...

Griffunk posted a photograph of his totally funny / totally twisted proposal prank to Reddit, captioning it simply: “I set a trap for my girlfriend in my sock drawer on laundry day.

“She fell for it.”

Unsurprisingly, the post went down a STORM with fellow Reddit users, all of whom wanted to know one thing; how did his girlfriend take it?

As in, was she upset? Was she amused? Was his penis still intact? And so on.

Griffunk, amused by the public outcry, issued a very tongue-in-cheek reply to the thousands of messages received, saying: "I am not on the couch, we are in our warm bed together, she is not a fragile pane of glass like some of you ladies commenting, we like comedy, my penis is unharmed.

“I have to do my own laundry next week."

But some (rather hysterical) people still didn’t believe him, assuming he’d been murdered by his girlfriend and that she was covering up her crimes by hacking into his Reddit account.

Cue one last visit to the web - and one last hilarious picture.

Griffunk added that the "two of them are more focused on having another baby than getting married at the moment.”

We definitely think these two have got staying power; after all, the couple who laughs together stays together!
