One of my favorite tricks to pull was I'd drill a small hole about 1/16" just under the handle on a coffee cup and then fill it with beeswax. Putting the hole there made it less likely to be seen and the beeswax would keep it from leaking right away. Then when it melted the coffee would run on to their wrist and down their arm and drip off the elbow. Was a real crowd pleaser.

Another one that went over really big was when my boss was in a big hurry to get to a meeting and when he wasn't looking I put a standard white lab rat in his briefcase. He said when he got to the meeting and opened it the rat came out and scurried across the meeting room table and it also had pee'd all over his papers. He loved me for that one.

That same boss once made the mistake of telling us a baaaad sheep joke at one of our friday meetings so we broke into his office one night and put an inflated inflatable sheep there with a sign around its neck saying "I'm Yours" and a jar of Vaseline relabled "Sheep Grease".

Another time one of my co-workers put a live rooster in his office before he got in. That went over real big also....  

It was also always fun to file flat spots on the office chair wheels of your coworkers

Pharmacy's are wise to that now - you can't buy these items on the same day around this time of year or they'll report ya.

Other office favorites:

-Taping the switch hook of someone's office phone so it keeps on ringing even after they pick it up (or double sided sticky taping the handset of the phone to the phone so they come up together)
-Stealing the enter key of the keyboard.
-Clear taping drawers shut
- and of course filling drawers or anything else with foam peanuts
- there're so many

Man arrested at Large Hadron Collider claims he's from the future



A would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.

The LHC successfully collided particles at record force earlier this week, a milestone Mr Cole was attempting to disrupt by stopping supplies of Mountain Dew to the experiment's vending machines. He also claimed responsibility for the infamous baguette sabotage in November last year.

Mr Cole was seized by Swiss police after CERN security guards spotted him rooting around in bins. He explained that he was looking for fuel for his 'time machine power unit', a device that resembled a kitchen blender.

Police said Mr Cole, who was wearing a bow tie and rather too much tweed for his age, would not reveal his country of origin. "Countries do not exist where I am from. The discovery of the Higgs boson led to limitless power, the elimination of poverty and Kit-Kats for everyone. It is a communist chocolate hellhole and I'm here to stop it ever happening."

This isn't the first time time-travel has been blamed for mishaps at the LHC. Last year, the Japanese physicist Masao Ninomiya and Danish string-theory pioneer Holger Bech Nielsen put forward the hypothesis that the Higgs boson was so "abhorrent" that it somehow caused a ripple in time that prevented its own discovery.

Professor Brian Cox, a former CERN physicist and full-time rock'n'roll TV scientist, was sympathetic to Mr Cole. "Bless him, he sounds harmless enough. At least he didn't mention bloody black holes."

Mr Cole was taken to a secure mental health facility in Geneva but later disappeared from his cell. Police are baffled, but not that bothered.

Do a search.

At the results, where it usually says something like "Results 1 - 10 of about 67,300,000 for sunshine <definition>. (1234 megabytes) " 

The quantifier at the end is different every time!
