Ride Damage Survey
This practical joke is best
done to people who are truly anal about their car, truck, whatever.
The type that parks their car 20 hectares away from the mall
to avoid it getting touched by human kind. When your buddy leaves
the car, get your friend to place a note on the windshield that
reads "Sorry, about the scratch. We will take car of any
damage." and add a fake phone number. Then as you come
out with your buddy from the mall, and they read the note, let
the search for the non-existent scratch begin. You can help
by point out "potential" scratches, watching him or
her run over to see, only to realize it's just dirt. This one
can done from afar so that you can have practical fun watching
the owner of the survey for damage rather than you helping out,
can be even more hilarious.
I Didn't Type That!
Microsoft Word and most likely
a bunch of other word processing programs now come with something
called "AutoCorrect". When a common misspelling is
made, it checks a list for it, and makes the corresponding correction.
Example, it would change "adn" to "and".
The magic of this is that it is user editable! Hop onto your
co-workers workstation, load up their word processor's AutoCorrect
list, and let your imagination run rampant. First start with
the small, but most aggravating ones by reversing what is already
in the list, change the corrections to the misspellings! Then
move to even more humorous stuff like company acronyms, people's
names, it's endless! Then watch to see how long it takes before
they switch the blame from their own typing, to the word processor,
and eventually to their sick minded co-worker... you!
Superglue a quarter to the ground
in front of a vending machine. Only time-lapse photography could
truly show the ingeniousness of such a practical joke, but sticking
around for an hour gives you a pretty good idea of how cheap
people really are.
Park your car on a the street
facing traffic, using a dark colour late model domestic sedan
adds to the authenticity of this prank. Wear dark clothes and
wear sunglasses and hold a hair dryer out the window and watch
in delight as car come squealing to a halt as they pass you.
In countries that use speed cameras,
park your car on the side of the road at night, preferably somewhere
you can hide well. As cars pass you, take pictures with your
camera, the flash will lead the drivers to believe they have
just been caught speeding. Watch the glow of red lights as they
slow down after realizing they just got a ticket for speeding.
Too bad you can't be there to witness the months of anxiety
waiting for the non-existent traffic violation to arrive by
mail to all these "speeding" drivers.
Teacher or professor giving you
a hard time? Grab their blackboard chalk and drill a small hole
straight down from the writing end, insert a match, and fill
the hole with a blend of chalk dust and glue. Put the chalk
back and watch the panic when smokes starts to spew!
Show Your Colours
Place a "Gay Pride"
sticker on your homophobic buddy's car. The joke only gets more
amusing the longer the person doesn't realize it is there. This
works great for people that reverse into parking spots and tend
not to walk around the back of their car.
