Printer Pranks

A couple of years ago, I wondered what happened to Zug. I soon found the answer, and started reading the site again. That lasted a whole two weeks, before I found something else to keep my attention.

When I was in Zug-mode, though, I found something interesting: printer pranks. A light bulb turned on, over my head. What a brilliant idea! Comedy! Printer! Technology! Brilliant!

So I tried it. I printed out the “EAT MORE PIE” prank, which simply tells people to eat more pie (in poorly-spelled, dumb-ass-mode-like form). Then I forgot about it.

About two hours later, my coworker who was in the cubicle next to me came back with a stack of papers, laughing. He then walked about the place and showed everyone that they should eat more pie. Our reaction? We laughed; I laughed secretly. Said coworker even went so far as to pin the Pie Proclamation on his cubicle wall, where it stayed for months.

Give printer pranks a try; you may like them.

I’m just a regular working schmutz like everyone else. But I just wanted to say that I am so frustrated by some of the people I work with. I like some birds, and even once in a while I’ll throw some bread and stuff out the windows in a sort of half assed attempt to try and “hook them up” if you will. But some of these little beasts are just nasty, and everyone is under the impression that I like hummingbirds. They would die if they saw the industrial sized, magnum “bug” zapper that I bought at Sams club this summer. This thing’ll fry these little pests faster than you can see them, and I couldn’t be happier. All the birds and their loose colons have no respect for my laundry or car parked under our giant milk weed in the back. I am just trying to cleanse the neighbor hood and will see how this works. But for the time being,…….it’s camo’s and shotguns for me on the weekends man! ROCK ON!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
