Build Timer Switch from Inexpensive Timer

I picked up some cheap electronic timers from the local Dollar General store. I would like to build timer switches that could be used for practical jokes. When the alarm goes off, the timer beeps repeatedly. Instead of beeping, I would like it to turn on lights or battery powered equipment. Any suggestions?

A "practical joker" deserves applause for his wit according to its quality.
Bastinado is about right. For exceptional wit one might grant keelhauling.
But staking him out on an anthill should be reserved for the very wittiest.
