Re: Time to laugh

Maybe, you would like to hear another story? Oh! You would? Great. Here it is. It is similar to the air vent story, but this time I am underground in the drainage vents from the street.

I had this crazy idea of getting some "hip boots" (like the fly fisherman wear). I had a special plan for those boots. I had found a way into the many concrete ducts that make up the rain drain system.

Naturally, I begin to explore. I notice manhole areas perhaps 150 feet apart. What's really cool, when you are in a 150 foot concrete tunnel, is to yell, and then listen to the natural echo and reverb from the response.

Getting back to my plan, I went to several manhole covers and tried to lift a few. Some were lighter than others. I found one that was way too heavy for someone to lift (from the outside) without proper tools.

Then I waited for people to walk by that manhole. I must say, at this point, I did get some pretty good views out of those little holes in the manhole cover.

Now, the fun starts. People walk by, and I yell out to them. Of course, 90% of the people never figured out where the sound was coming from. It is the other 10% of people that make this story fun.

They were the ones who realized that someone was under that manhole cover. Most of them laughed at the whole preposterousness of it all.

There was one guy, however, that really sticks out, in my mind. That was the guy who decided that I shouldn't be having that much fun and began to give me a hard time and threatening to call the police.

Well, his tauntings brought on mine. I said everything I could to get this guy angry. What REALLY pissed him off was when he stuck his fingers in the holes, trying to lift the cover. That was because I kept hitting his hands with a stick.

Keep in mind, that this is in broad daylight. So, after exchanging a few more unpleasantries, he does what (I thought) was the perfect retaliation. YES, FOLKS, he whips it out and pees in the manhole cover holes. I am sure that he was very frustrated at that point, especially since all I had to do was move a few feet to avoid the "golden shower".

Re: Time to laugh

Two old men were sitting on a park bench.

One leans over to the other and says, " I can't remember, was it you or your brother that died"?

There are three kinds of people. Those who can count and those who can't.

Re: Time to laugh

I used to work at a children's home so we had a big room full of toys for birthdays and special occasions. It was spring time and there were a lot of canadian geese that hung out around the building and some had made nests. One goose pair had laid six eggs but had only hatched five of them and one of the office girls had taken the un-hatched egg and put it on her desk. That gave me an idea, so that night I went home and got a chicken egg and broke it in half then when I got in to work the next morning I went to the toy room and found a baby chick stuffed animal. The office people didn't get in until later so I arranged the broken eggshell and the chick doll on her desk to look like it had hatched right there. Her desk was right by a window so I acted like I was working on the building right next to the window so I could see her reaction. She sat down, turned on her computer and got to work but a minute or so later I saw her scream and nearly fall off her chair. The other office people came running over and soon they were all laughing like mad. One of them saw me looking in the window (also laughing like mad) and told the girl to look behind her. She swore she'd get me back but soon after the home was closed and she never got the chance.

That was my best practical joke ever.

Re: Time to laugh

Our family camp is surrounded by hundreds of acres of federal land so we see lots of animals including coyotes. My Brother-in-law is kinda freaked out about about the coyotes so before we went camping one summer I made up some small wooden crosses with bits of reflective tape stapled on so when a light was shined on them at night they'd look like coyote eyes glowing in the dark. We got up there before anyone else and I placed them so they'd be visible from our campfire circle so I could freak out as many people as possible.

The first night everyone was still getting settled in so I didn't shine a light over there that night, but the second night we were all sitting around the fire when my 10 year old niece and one of her friends came over and said they'd heard something moving out in that direction and would I see what it was?

I told them to bring me a flashlight and I'd take a look (giggling evilly to myself, of course) and when they came back I made a big show of shining the light out there. There were about a dozen crosses out there so it looked like a big pack of coyotes was getting ready to pounce. The girls squealed and my brother-in-law dang near killed himself running for his pistol but I stopped him before he opened up on the "pack."

I couldn't have planned a better set up than those girls gave me.

Re: Time to laugh

When the children's home closed down I went to work for a church/school that was also slated to close down. The school closed before the church did so my job was to get all the furniture and equipment collected so it could be claimed by other area parochial schools. Most of the equipment found new homes but among the unclaimed stuff was a tall cabinet. One day I happened to look in that cabinet and found an actual human skeleton hanging there. Of course I took it home with me and in time another diabolical plan hatched in my evil brain.

I tied some loops of cord to the skeleton's arms and legs so I could "wear" it and brought along some black clothing and a black face mask. Off to the camp we went. Once it was dark and everyone was sitting around the fire I slipped off and put on my black clothes and mask then went behind one of the trailers and put on the skeleton. My little niece and the same friend as before were sitting by the camp fire facing in just the right direction to see me walk out of the shadows into the firelight. The white skeleton showed up real well but I was all in black so at first glance it looked like the skeleton was walking into the camp on it's own with arms waving and bones clacking. Sound effects are key so I was moaning like the undead. Most of the adults were in on the joke by then but those two girls cowered back in their chairs with terror in their eyes. It was epic.

The next day the girls got even by locking me in the outhouse and putting a smoke bomb at the air vent. The outhouse quickly filled with pink smoke and I was just getting ready to kick the door open when they finally unlocked the door and let me out. It was a very memorable weekend.

Thanx Accordian, I got a good laugh from your antics also.

My brother-in-law has taken to carrying his pistol around camp and that's cut way down on the pranks. I definitely won't be putting on another costume and walking out of the dark again.
