Humorless, but harmless...Don't think I can come
up with an outhouse!

I got my EX real good one year. I set all the clocks in the house and in his vehicle ahead by an hour. He showed up at work verrrry early and couldn't figure out why everyone else was late!

I played a good one on one of my supervisors one time too. She always had fresh fruit on her desk. An orange, apple, plums, peaches, whatever was in season. I snuck in a little early and placed little plastic black ants across her desk and on her fruit. Shudda' heard her holler! Once she caught on, those little black ants mysteriously appeared in the coffee room all over the sugar container and across the counter.

You can write a "message" on a concrete drive with Armorall and after it dries it will not show UNTIL the drive gets wet from rain or a garden hose. PLEASE remember that it will be there a LONG time and every time it gets wet it will show BIG TIME. Soap or power washer does not wash it off. Test it on your drive a small area.

Didn't happen in April, but I have a funny one... remember it happening as a child to my great-gram..... didn't think it was funny then, she darn-near had a heart attack. She was fixing Thanksgiving Day turkey for about 40 of us and somehow the older kids got her out of the house for sledding.... meanwhile the neighbor lady slips in the back door with a cornish game hen and does an roasting pan switch. Grams been gone for a very long time..... but I will never forget the look on her face when she opened that oven door to baste her 28 lb bird!!!

well mom used a separator filter disc for the best one she ever pulled - i guess one could cut down a coffee filter and smooth it out for the same prank. We came in from chores and she was making pancakes - kinda explained she'd only gotten one apiece ready but had put more on the skillet. So we set about buttering and powdered sugaring and syruping, then couldn't cut thru the darn things. Nobody wanted to grumble i guess but they were all sawing away, so finally i rolled mine up and bit an end off - and came up with a mouthful of filter! About then mom said "April Fool!" Here she'd dipped the things in batter and fried it all together. :)

Do you really mean humorless? If so I got's a million of them that aren't funny, just ask Donna! LOL
However here's my favorite, right at quitting time, walk up to your supervisor and ask
"Are you getting fired? What did you do?" then head on out the door and go home.
He'll go crazy all night. I did that to a dispatcher one night on the phone, and he left 8 or 9 messages at my next stop, for me to call him!
When I told him the truth, he saw the humor and nailed me with every bad load for 3 months.
Have fun

Yer Iggerent! That ain't humor, that's abuse.
Ya ain't funny threatening folks like that, that's borderline terrorism.
Wanna borrow mine?

WallSal55 - spongecake    Posted 03-20-2004 at 19:56:38       [Reply]  [No Email]
Geez, I cannot spell tonight! Humorous, but
You all brought back memories of the time my
girlfriend and I made a 'sponge cake' and took
it to a local pub for an old gent who said he'd
love to have a spongecake from us--if we baked
one sometime.
So, next night we show up w/one on a pretty
plate, with a knife.
Well, you guessed it. He was a sawing away,
the middle began to sink, but wouldn't cut
and the ends began to rise.
We had taken 3 rectangular sponges and put
a layer of cake frosting between each sponge
and then frosted the entire outside.
It was hilarious!
