Prank of the night

Postby hack124x768 » Sun Jan 27, 2008 8:35 am UTC

Around 11:30pm One of my buddies fell asleep at my house. My brother and I fished his car keys our of his pocket, and we got a ride back to the sleeping friend's house from another friend who was on the his home. We grabbed the sleeping friend's car and drove to the store to grab supplies. We then proceeded to fill his car. In case anyone cares, it takes about 45 balloons to fill a '90 VW Jetta.

Tomorrow morning he will find his keys are still in his pocket, yet his car is here, and worse, full of balloons.

Sorry for the bad English. I am SO FREAKIN' BUZZING on the strongest coffee I have ever had. I can't even make a good sentence.

We blew them up the usual way. Put balloon end to mouth, and blow, then tie.
No, none in the gas tank. I'm not that mean.

hahaha, that is pretty cool.

We did that to the office of a lecturer at uni on his birthday. It took hundreds of balloons, but it was worth it.

I've finagled the door code to my best friend's SUV and I'm collecting objects to fill it up with. So far all I've got is a road work warning orange and white thing, a gingerbread house from christmas, and a few things like a garden gnome, an old ass candle holder and part of what I think is a bed frame that my tacky neighbors thought would be ok to store on their porch. Come to think of it I should go get some more stuff from them later, cause they seriously have their whole porch filled with ridiculous stuff.

Good prank. I heard some people in showbiz did pranks to each other, culminating in one person getting their motorhome filled with live chickens.

Here are some photos. Not as funny as thisisdavid's, but still reasonably funny. He woke up before we could fill his room, so we just barricaded his door.

That's pretty awesome. I have a similar story, compliments of a friend of mine.

A few years ago, he got word that a bulk party favor company was going out of business. Realizing that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, he proceeded to buy out a fair chunk of the remaining stock of super high bounce balls. He then waited, patiently, with the sacks of bouncing madness in his garage, until one of our other friends went home for the night and forgot to close his sunroof.

He woke up that morning to a car filled to the brim with tiny super bouncy balls. After much swearing, and an initial attempt at digging them out from the sunroof, he gave up, opened the door, and unleashed the torrent.

Edit, regarding the foam board over the door: We did something similar once, when waiting for someone who was taking too long to get out of the shower. Only we used clear plastic wrap and covered the entire door opening. :D

When one of my house mates went home for the weekend we turned EVERYTHING in his room upside down. This included his 300lb dresser, his light-switch plate, all 150 pictures on his wall and the windows desktop on his computer. He actually got really pissed at us when he came home. The next day he laughed though.

Although I wasn't involved in this one it was pretty funny: In first year my friend went away for the weekend. While he was away his room mate and the guys from his floor wrapped all of his belongings in cling wrap. This included every individual piece in his monopoly game set. He said he was finding things cling wrapped for two months afterwards.

Reminds me of something I've run across on the internet.

What happens if you chuck one of those cans of aerosol whipped cream into liquid nitrogen, then saw the can in half, then chuck it into someone's car? The idea being that the propellant inside the can freezes solid and you get a great big chunk of foam which expands and fills up someone's car. I suspect that you have to agitate the can strongly before/while freezing, though, to mix it thoroughly.
Life may suck, but there's nothing else to do.

I have a friend named Stephen. He had a friend, Nick, whom no one could stand. However, he had known the guy for awhile and was pretty much "stuck" with him (though he has since broken off contact with him). There were many reasons to dislike Nick: his lack of personal hygiene (they sprayed the couch with Febreeze as soon as he was out the door, every time), his temper, his lack of intelligence coupled with being convinced he knew more about everything than everybody, his selfishness, etc. But the thing most pertinent to this story is that he lies. He lies about everything.

The first time I ever met him, we were at Stephen's. The three of us were watching a movie and somehow the topic of eyesight came up. I mentioned that I only have the one eye that really works and he said, "Oh yeah? When I was younger, my brother and I were playing out in the woods. He was sitting in a tree with a bow and shot an arrow towards me. I was running faster than he thought and the arrow hit me in the eye. But that's ok, because the doctors reconstructed it.." (emphasis added) Then he went to the bathroom.

At that point, I was already thinking, "Really? You have a bionic eye?" Then Stephen told me, "When I heard that story, his brother was up in a tree with a broom handle, swung down, and jammed it in his eye."

Here is a brief list of other lies he told:

-He was involved in black ops during the Gulf War. He would have been 14 at the time.
-He was born in a plane over Ireland. No, the Atlantic. No, in a hospital in Jersey. No, he was adopted.
-He got mugged. Nevermind that the deep cuts on his arm were perfectly smooth and matched the blade of his pocket knife. Yes, he cut himself to make the story more believable.
-He wrestled an imp in the woods. This preceded him "falling" into a lake and almost drowning.
-His motorcycle has a worm gear to make it go faster.
-He has a motorcycle.

He lies. So one night Stephen and I were sitting at Denny's bored and decided to play a prank on him. We knew he was at the rescue squad all night (pretending to be an EMT when he was really just an under-qualified assistant) and we also knew that he never locked the door to his trailer. So we went to his place, walked in, and began to "vandalize" the place. But our vandalism was good-natured, funny, and not damaging. Things we did included:

-Turning every single book on his bookshelf around so they were facing pages out.
-Turning many things upside down, but leaving them in their exact positions (table, TV, couch, etc.)
-Taking the kitchen knives out of the dartboard in the kitchen (yes, you read that correctly) and using them to make legs for a week-old pizza box.
-Hiding the lid for his toilet's tank.
-Leaving porn playing full blast on the TV.
-Unscrewed almost every light bulb just enough that it wouldn't turn on but still looked attached in the socket.

It was harmless stuff, and we had every intention of telling him it was us when he called. But he didn't call until the next day. This is a paraphrase of the key part of the conversation between him and Stephen.

Nick: "Well I got the welcoming committee last night."
Stephen: (Holding back laughter) "What do you mean?"
Nick: "I got home around 3am and some assholes crowbarred themselves into my house, completely trashed the place, and stole every valuable piece of electronics I have."
Stephen: "...really? Did they get your laptop?"
Nick: "No. Thankfully I had that with me all night."

Now before you start thinking that people broke in after we were there, let me tell you a few things. (Yes, another list)

-His door was unlocked. There was no crowbarring.
-He didn't even have a refrigerator, let alone a bunch of "valuable electronics".
-When Stephen turned the TV upside down, he had to move Nick's laptop to do so.

So Nick had lied yet again. At that point, we decided that every time he lied to us, we would do something to him. So we stole his stairs.

Remember, Nick lived in a trailer. His stairs were not exactly the sturdiest things in the world. They were some wooden planks screwed into some L-channel and then the entire thing was attached to the "porch" with 2-4 nails. So one night while he was away, we went to his place and with a few quick jerks managed to separate the stair assembly from the porch. We then hid it in a corner of his yard under some leaves.

We laughed and laughed, waiting for him to call us with some ridiculous story about a ring of stair thieves plaguing his neighborhood. But the call never came. A few weeks later, Stephen said to him, "By the way, I was kind of disappointed that you never told us about your stairs getting stolen."
"...how do you know about that?"
"Well, after you got broken into and robbed, Kevin and I thought it would be funny to do something ridiculous to make you think they came back. But what kind of thieves would steal stairs?"
Nick paused. "Well you owe some kid an apology."
"Why?"
"Well I was walking back from the squad and there was some kid walking through my yard. Though now that I think about it, he may have just been taking a shortcut. Anyway, I saw the stairs were gone and assumed it was him, so I started chasing him down the street and punched him in the back of the head."

Now like I said, Nick lies. But even so, the idea of some teenager walking through the trailer park minding his own business only to have some guy start chasing him while screaming, "YOU STOLE MY STAIRS! YOU STOLE MY STAIRS!" and then getting punched in the back of the head is hilarious.

tl;dr version: We stole someone's stairs.

We filled a couple hundred small Dixie cups with water, and built a pyramid in front of someone's door with them. She opened the door, saw us over the top of the 5' pyramid, and laughed. Then she stopped laughing and said "heh cute... how do I get out?"

Indeed.

The balloons piled up against the door made me think of the way crazy people pile flowers and letters and candles and teddy bears and shit near where a celebrity has died. Which just makes me want to pile an impromptu memorial against someone's door in the middle of the night, or while they're gone for a few days. Bonus surreal points if it's in a dorm, and you can convince everyone on the hall or the floor to play along and act like he's not there.

I expect that there is some sort of balloon with an integrated valve. You could use these to fill a locked room by sticking an air tube into the balloon, sliding it under the door, filling the balloon and pulling the hose back. That would be fun.

That would cost so much more than a regular balloon. Enough to fill a whole room with them? Probably be cheaper to hire a locksmith and use regular balloons.

A coupla months ago I planted a tree. On someone's car.

Also, the balloons are a good idea. I'll have to do that some time.

Edit: Wow. I destroyed this thread. Good conversation for a day and a half - and then I speak up. And the thread is never visited again. What did I do?
