All good fun but remember to not do anything that would be illegal, including the fork bombs.

Don't do what I had to deal with or my team had to deal with, a leaving staff member created havoc by deleting masses amounts of work that he claimed was his. It took us many many hours work to restore it

Disgruntled employee? Or just not the brightest bulb in the box?

No just someone with an enormous feeling of self worth and thought everything he did was his. Was very good at his job just a monumental pain in the gluteus maximus to manage.

kiwitrc: Hide a fish behind a filing cabinet.

Edit: I see XPD had a similar idea


The trick is to use a frozen fish, as you will have well and truly left the building before that baby thaws and gets real tasty smelling :D

I'm pretty disturbed by the fish idea... Do people actually do this?

Sure I read a children's book where a kid did this to their teacher... Nailed it under her desk, ended up closing down the whole school for h&s and missing the ball game he was peeved at the teacher for threatening to ban him from if he dint get his work done :)

On cars usually..... bit of fish oil in a cars air vents or in the wheel....   especially if car gets stored in a garage.

Or some form of smelly grease/oil on the door handles... driver gets it on their hands.... if no cloths in the car they either drive with it stinking all over their hands, or on the clothes when they try wiping it off.

Getting OT now.. ;)

While we're OT, I once put a fish in the spare wheel well of a mates XE panel van (under the floor in the back)... took about a week for him to find it.
He offered me a ride somewhere about a month after and you could still gag over it.

Dont do that.
