    The Practical Joke Thread

    What was the best practical joke you ever played on someone, or had played on you?

    Bob worked on the floor below me. He was a really bright guy, funny, smart as a whip, but a real underachiever because he was also the laziest man I’d ever known. One day, he came up to our floor to boast that he’d got an interview for a really good job at one of the best places in town. We all congratulated him, and wished him luck, although we all knew he had no chance, because his technical knowledge was way too low.

    A week later, after he’d bought a new suit and been to the interview, he came up to see us again. This time he was full of himself, chest puffed out, swaggering. He told us he’d got on really well at the interview – he had muffed the technical questions a bit – but no worries, the boss and him were on the same wavelength, it was only a matter of time before he was offered the job. He proceeded to call us all losers as he left, and that was the catalyst. I got our secretary to call him and invite him for a second interview, Friday 1pm. He was up again moments later, saying, ‘What did I tell you, guys? They want to see me again, probably to talk about the size of the huge package they want to offer me’. I said they probably just wanted to find out if he had a second suit or not. He shot me a glance, called us all losers again and left. It wasn’t mentioned again until the Friday morning, when he turned up in a second new suit and announced he was off to his second interview.

    To our shame, we let him go. So at 1pm on the Friday, Bob turned up and announced he was there for his second interview. The secretary told him they didn’t do second interviews, and anyway the boss had just gone to the pub. Bob then lost his temper, had a good old rant about waste and inefficiency, and demanded that she go and fetch the boss from the pub. She did, and the boss explained that (a) they didn’t do second interviews (b) they’d selected another candidate, and (c) maybe someone was pulling his leg.

    Bob arrived back at our office fuming and saying he was going to take the company to court for wasting his time. I finally put him out of his misery and told him it was all a wind-up. ‘You’re all cnuts,’ he said with a big smile. He took his second new suit back to Marks & Spencer and got a refund.
    The sleep of reason brings forth monsters.

    We used to play practical jokes on our mate Buzz all the time.

    Setting fire to his newspaper when he was reading it after a night out was always very funny.

    As was the time we gave his phone number to a charity who called him up to arrange a time for him to go and do his work with them. Buzz being Buzz couldn't remember if he had given his phonenumber or not and went along just to be sure.

    I was on tea duty one morning after being out clubbing and I was a bit more wasted than normal so I decided to bring all the tea making stuff into the living room and make the tea there fore everyody.

    So I boiled the kettle and carried everything through.

    I made everybodies tea and sat down, I forgot about mine for a bit. My mates started saying to me that I was a stupid **** and had forgotten to boil the water and had made cold tea. I was 100% sure that I had boiled it and didn't think I was that battered but I must have been

    They sat there drinking it though saying it was a waste to throw it out. SO i fucking believed them and left my tea on the table cause I son't really like cold tea.

    Once they had all finished, Buzz asked me if he could drink mine as well so I picked it up to pass it to him, It was fucking hot. CHeeky wind up bastards got me.

    I thought I had some sort of memory lapse.

    We completely wrapped our teacher's Hillman Imp in toilet paper when it was his birthday. That was a giggle.

    Everytime I slept at my friends house I used to walk home with her afterschool the same way as a boy in my class did and he always found it hillarious to hide behind a tree and jump out at me making me scream.

    This particular time I wasn't having any of it so I made sure I was going to make him jump. I got a friend to talk to him whilst I went ahead and found a good hiding spot. It seemed like forever waiting but I waited for my moment and when I saw him coming I jumped out scaring him so much he fell in some dog shit which was really funny.

    After that he never did that trick again but kept his usual tricks.
    Welcome to the jungle!

    When I was in the army I put a can of vegimite in the camp fire as a bit of a joke and watched making sure no one was to close. Turned my back for one second and our radio operator walked over and stuck his head over the fire the thing went of like a rocket spraying hot vegimite over him and burning big blisters all over his face he didn,t speak to me for about a month. I couldn,t help but laugh every time I looked at him but I did feel bad

    at a workshop where I once worked we would have the operators coming in to report something wrong and have a bit of a chat , but while they were there thay could not help themselves and love to play with bits in the workshop. So on one of the benches close to where they would stop , we placed a blanking power outlet plate with just a little hole in it and a small screwdriver in the hole with just the handle showing ( a little excaliburs sword ). behind the plate was mounted a proximity switch which would be held switched bu the metal shaft of the screwdriver . when one of the fiddly boys came in and decided they would pull the screwdriver out , the prox switch would change state to allow power to a soleniod which would release 100psi to an airhorn and skidmarks would ensue.

    My mate was making baked beans on toast, doing the beans in the microwave. Everytime he turned round to watch snooker (White vs. Hendry if I remember rightly) after starting the beans we'd turn the power down to defrost on the microwave - just before the timer dinged we'd set it back to full power. After checking 6 times and 15 minues later he finally eat cold beans on toast - you had to be there, it sounds crap, but me mate was a cider alky twat and it was fookin hilarious.

    We also stole a traffic light and wired it up in the front room, couldn't get it to change colours though, but we had to remove it after the police noticed it when we there was an attempted burglary.

    Most dangerous and stupid thing we did was to let down the tyres of our mates car who we knew was going to drive home drunk - he didn't die though.

    I used to work in a fun office

    we all took turns to make the tea, and carried it around to each desk on a large tray. For newbies, we kept one styrofoam cup at the edge empty.

    Just as we were going to give them their tea, we would "accidentally" knock over the cup towards them. It worked every time, the guy would jump like a scalded cat to get out of the way whilst the empty cup fell to the floor.

    bloody hilarious until one guy panicked so much he upset the whole tray all over the place, soaking him and the teamaker in hot tea

    We have standardized Gov't home study course with tests that we have to write at work to be a supervisor. One of the guys I work with was bragging how he got his wife to do his for him and she got 97%. One of the other guys hadn't done his yet so he asked if he could copy the test and send it in. The first guy said sure but it is at home I will bring it in tomorrow. Meanwhile he got another blank copy of the test and filled in the first 10 or so questions correctly and then filled out the rest all wrong. As a finishing touch he wrote 97% in big red marker up at the top.

    The second guy didn't really trust his good fortune so he checked the first few and after confirming that the answers did appear right he copied the entire test and submitted it to the Gov't via the mail. He score 18% on the test which goes directly to our employer. They almost refused to promote him based on this result and he was a bit pissed at the joker to say the least.....

    I though I would revive this thread as I love a good practical joke....

    At work we used to have pickups with dual gas tanks. We share trucks across shifts so if you come on for a night shift you get the truck your day shift counterpart was using. One of the guys on my shift told his cross shift that their pickup needed to go to the shop in the morning to fix a leak in the second gas tank. So he asked him to be sure to run the second tank dry, even going so far as to try restart it a number of times after it dies from lack of fuel until all the vapors are gone. Then he was to shift to the 1st tank and continue on with his regular duties.

    As you can likely guess when the unlucky (and unwise for not checking), co-worker went to switch to the first tank it was also bone dry.

    The same guy who played the above gas tank joke once got another of our co-workers pretty good...

    One day he was in the city 400km south of town and he called up one of his buddies who worked with him while he was on days off and asked him "hey where the hell are you? The manager is pissed you are not here!" His Buddy was confused and asked what he was talking about to which the guy said "we have a leaders meeting down in the city and you are supposed to be here...you can catch the 10:00 flight if you hurry and be hear shortly after noon for the rest of the meeting. Just put the ticket on your visa and expense it when we go back on shift."

    The first guy was down in the city and had no one he knew to go drinking with. Of course the poor SOB did it and was out the price of the ticket but they went out drinking and had a great time anyway.

    We had a dumb fuck kiwi at work in Oman and he found out the sultan of Oman liked studying birds or butterflies can’t remember which one it was but he sent a book on New Zealand birds. to the sultan
    A few of the guys at the rig found out about it and sent a letter to him making out it was from the sultan Thanking him for the book and telling him that he would be in NZ for a holiday and would like to meet him at some very expensive hotel.
    So old mate the Kiwi booked into the expensive hotel with his wife and waited for the sultan to arrive of course he didn’t turn up.
    So he sent a letter to sultan asking him why he didn’t turn up and how he had gone to a lot of trouble and expense to meet him
    The police came to the rig and took him for two days also they took one of the Omanis as in the first letter some one had copied the royal seal very big NO NO
