No! Just kidding. You are not “phat” America. I’m playing. I totally had you there for a second, didn’t I? I’m sooo mean, right? Actually, I’m not. I am just practicing for April Fools tomorrow. That was an early present if you will. Want more? Well, the funny folks at comedy juggernauts CNN.com and CareerBuilder.com came up with a list of the ten greatest work-place pranks of this past year. And, I must admit, they are much funnier than Schindler’s List.
So, how wild are you America’s Workforce? Here now are some of the “best” you had to offer…
3. All the women in office individually spoke to the president, confiding that she is pregnant. By noon, he ‘knew’ that all of his female workers were pregnant and he could not tell anyone because each asked for confidentially.
Though, this prank ranks up there with the rest of those, “really bro?” type of pranks. I mean, really bro, you fell for that? “Gee, honey, it was strange, all 12 of my female employees came into my office to tell me, in private, that they were ALL pregnant. Pretty weird, huh?”
Pretty stupid. I don’t like this one, but maybe that’s because I’m not an idiot. So take that into consideration.
How about this one?
4. Called electric company, used a co-worker’s name and told them he was moving so the electricity got turned off at the co-worker’s house.
Dick move bro. At least give me a heads-up so I can save the meatloaf.
5. Filled the vending soda machine with cans of beer.
Why I never heard anything sooo ….sooo….sooo…infuriating! Sometimes you just want a Diet Coke.
10. Put a ‘house for sale’ ad in the newspaper regarding a co-worker’s home.
Bravo, Hamilton County Wal-Mart, Indiana. Bravo!
“Dear God … More meatballs & less spaghetti, please?”
My personal favorite April Fools Prank comes from our sponsor, Taco Bell.
Taco Bell Buys The Liberty Bell
In an effort to help the national debt, Taco Bell is
pleased to announce that we have agreed to purchase the
Liberty Bell, one of our country’s most historic treasures.
It will now be called the ”Taco Liberty Bell” and will
still be accessible to the American public for viewing.
While some may find this controversial, we hope our
move will prompt other corporations to take similar action
to do their part to reduce the country’s debt.
Later Weird Al would go on to write a song about it called “Taco Libert-eenage Waste Land Bell.” Sweet.
Here’s a Suggestion: Go Green!
