I like gentle pranks. Do you? Don’t have any for you this year but I had a humdinger of an idea two years ago but I forgot it. I’m dangerous I am. Considering I’m so forgetful, I rarely wait for the day to pull a prank. Take the time I picked up my sister (a fashion plate in those days) at the airport, dressed in pajamas, bedroom slippers and carrying a teddy bear -back in the days when you could still meet arriving passengers. Little kids loved it. My sister was mortified -precisely the desired effect. Last night I tried to pull a prank on my better half by changing his Google language settings to Pig-Latin but he didn’t even laugh.
5. Change the Language Settings on Google When a co-worker leaves her computer unattended for a minute, quickly go to Google’s home page and click on “Preferences.” There, you can choose the interface language of the search engine. Klingon, Hacker and Yiddish are all excellent choices, but Elmer Fudd is our personal favorite. As Elmer, you can use the Google Diwectowy, perform a Google Seawch or find out if you’re ‘feewing wucky.’
I doubt he would have been as smug if I’d changed them to Klingon or Hacker (it’s hard to find “English” to change them back).
What’s the best joke you ever pulled?
