Pat would like to post some of his favorite tricks to play on people. The picture to your left is a prank that was played on him. This is his payback....
GARAGE SALE: Place an ad in the classified section of your local newspaper advertising a GIGANTIC Garage Sale listing the address of your victim. Advertise televisions, cam-corder, vintage automobile, antiques, etc. Sale begins at 6:00 a.m. all items in the backyard, Just come around back and Come early!
OIL SPOT: At night, pour used oil underneath the victim's car while parked in the driveway. Pour enough that will be alarming. Continue to do this each night. The subject will spend great deals of money trying to get the oil leak repaired time and time again. I have even heard of a person buying a new car after the repeated attempts at repair. Imagine their surprise when that new car starts leaking too!
FAX MACHINES: Write whatever you wish on 9 pages of 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper and tape them together (end to end). Dial the victim's fax number and start sending the pages through. After page two has been transmitted, tape the top of page 1 to the bottom of page 9 making a continuous loop. The document will continue to cycle until the victim's fax machine has run out of paper. Be sure and disable your phone number from being printed on the fax and also disable caller I.D. This prank is great to get even with a business or individual who has somehow cheated you.
KEY BOARDS: This works well in a work environment where you repeatedly all day have to use a log in name, but can still be used for fun. Take a letter opener, pocket knife etc, and pry up the M and N buttons on a co-workers keyboard, now replace them.....backwards, so the M is on the left and N on the right.
PAPER MONEY: Write a sexy solicitation message with the victim's name and phone number (inviting a phone call) on the edge of several pieces of paper money before spending them. The victim will receive many eye popping inquiries. Another favorite.
CELL PHONES: When a friend leaves it sitting alone, edit their screen saver to say "no service" in the banner. they may have full bars but it will tell them otherwise. (Who uses a cell phone with a screen saver and banner anymore? Ed.)
And one I do not recommend (anymore) for safety reasons. If someone you know has an older car (with the air vents at the bottom of the windshield) dump a bottle or two of baby powder in there...preferably when its hot out. This way when the AC turns on it will snow in the car.
(Editor's Note: DO NOT TRY ANY OF THESE. They are only meant as a look into Pat's head. Scary, ain't it?)
