    Prank Advice

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by NaCl, Jan 21, 2010.

    I couldn't resist. Been married 37 years to a lovely woman, but sometimes the child in me overwhelms adult judgment.

    At lunch today, I bought a deli sandwich in the local supermarket, and as I left, I noticed a bag of fake insects on a children's toy rack. Yep, bought em. When I got home from work today, I took a plate of BBQ'd chicken from the refrigerator and placed it on the counter next to the microwave. Then, I carefully placed half a dozen very real looking cockroaches in strategic places on the food.

    In walks the love of my life. Oh my, her reaction exceeded anything I was prepared for. She screamed, leaped away from the counter and begged me to kill them. Everything was okay until I showed her they were rubber. All that adrenaline with no outlet...I was toast! I guess things would have been okay if I hadn't forgotten that I also placed four of the little buggers on her pillow in our bedroom upstairs. Another shriek echoed down the stairwell, followed by a string of curses. I hope our marriage makes it to 38 years...LOL

    That is...mere words are superfluous to the sentiment i want to express (did i use that word right?). I love to prank people, especially those close to me. Their reactions are often the most lovely thing you will see the whole year. Yours is a classic NacI and i applaud your boldness for doing it not once but twice to the same person.

    I have a personal favorite of mine that i consider my greatest ever. A while ago i dated a girl for about a year and a half. So one day me and my friends were shooting a small short film for a school project about a raving mad killer. So we had set up the most realistic blood we could find, i mean it was perfect.:D Just as we finish shooting she calls me and asks me if i'm home. I couldn't resist the temptation to feign i was being robbed. She arrived there about 5min later to find me lying in a pool of blood all over the apartment. I have never heard a more terrified shriek when my friend yelled cut and i got up smiling. I got a black eye and several bruises for that but it was totally worth it:D.

    If it was me I would suggest you sleep with one eye open and test all food for at least a couple of weeks.

    That's absolutely hilarious. :D I would have screamed as well... I often am the victim of many pranks, since I have 7 brothers... so I prank them back sometimes. I haven't done anything that evil yet, though. :p

    Not that my husband would even THINK of doing something like that to me...if he did...The dogs would have his place in the queen-sized bed and he would have the pillow on the floor.

    After the trial and she's acquitted of all charges, yes, I imagine she would find it very funny.

    She got me back.

    This morning I set out a suit for work, showered and prepared for a busy day of appointments. Everything went great...until I tried to put on my black socks. Foot stopped about half way down. She sewed my socks shut. No problem I have, like, ten pairs of black socks...nope, nope, nope...ALL sewed shut! She's a talented seamstress with a big sewing room. Last night, she said she wanted to do some "sewing" before bed. I figured she working on a quilt. Now, I'm wearing a black suit...with brown socks. Guess I'll be removing threads this weekend. Touche, to the Mrs.

    Now...where did I put that plastic dog poop?

    Not bad NaCl... glad to hear of a wife with a sense of humour... and revenge.
    Once we used this netsend messaging function on our networked computers here at work to send a fairly official-looking alert to one of our co-worker's computers. It said that he had been flagged for using inappropriate internet content and his computer usage would be monitored for the next 30 days. We let him stew in his own anxiety for the rest of the day before we broke the news to him.
    After we stopped laughing, we felt bad for ruining his day... sort of. :)

    Just remember one thing, Dean.

    You cannot win. You cannot break even. You can only cut your losses.

    Yes, I would.

    And then I would do this.

    I come from a long line of pranksters. It's in my blood.

    I'm not a pranks perrson, but this page made me laugh. I more steal people's personal belongings until they notice they're missing, and then give them back. But I always, always give them back. :)

    During the election, I replaced the Palin button on one of my super-Republican friend's purse with a "Yes, we can!" button. She didn't notice for a week, but when she did, it was priceless. She just about exploded.
