    What are some of your favorite office pranks?

    Microwaving fish in the lunch room is always a good one because it pisses everybody off.

    My personal favorite is to take a blank piece of paper and "fax" it to somebodies phone. Set the fax machine to make 5 attempts.

    Where I work, don't you dare leave your computer unlocked when you leave your desk.
    Somebody will add the word Jr in front of your business title in your e-mail signature line. Our Jr Senior Vice President was sending emails for 2 hours the other day before he found out.

    Another good one is to take a print screen of somebodies desktop, then save it as the desktop background, then hide all icons. It's hilarious to watch them click on the icons and nothing happens.

    What are some of your favorite work place pranks?

    If Shogun actually worked and got out of his parent's basement, and he turned on his USMB alter-eg, then he would probably annoy everyone!

    I used to have a boss who would email strange messages to other employees from your desk if you left your computer unlocked...It was kinda funny.
    He also used to make your desk top applications appear upside down. I think he was just a kid at heart. :lol:

    Best way to annoy co-workers is to talk politics or religion at work.

    Probably 90% of the people I work with are conservatives. The 10% liberals generally don't talk politics because none of them follow politics close enough to speak from an informed position on the subject matter.

    With as much fun as we have at work, I don't know why they call it work.

    I have pranks pulled on me all the time. One of them: We moved into an office that was infested with mice. We put down the humane traps but the mice got in there and kept squeaking.

    I came in one morning and answered the phone but after talking awhile, I felt something on my hair, I looked and immediately threw the receiver across the room. My boss had taped a fake mouse to my phone the night before.

    They tape my scissors together all the time, stuff like that. They're crazy. :cuckoo: :)
