Some real whacked-out ones to ring in 2003......Dare you to.....
Why not initiate an office dare system - however to do it properly only
you are allowed to know the dare. Sounds confusing? Well read
1) Run one lap around the office at top speed.
3) Ignore the first five people who say 'good morning' to you.
4) Phone someone in the office you barely know, leave your name and
say,"Just called to say I can't talk right now. Bye."
5) To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your head
8) Walk sideways to the photocopier.
9) While riding an lift, gasp dramatically every time the doors open
1) Say to your boss, "I like your style" and shoot him with
double-barrelled fingers.
2) Babble incoherently at a fellow employee then ask,"Did you get all
that, I don't want to have to repeat it".
3) Page yourself over the intercom (do not disguise your voice).
4) Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle
(there must be a 'non-player' within sight).
5) Shout random numbers while someone is counting.
1) At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to
conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if you
actually launch into it yourself).
2) Walk into a very busy person's office and while they watch you with
growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
3) For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as "Bob".
5) After every sentence, say 'mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent - As
in "the report's on your desk, mon". Keep this up for one hour.
6) While an office mate is out, move their chair into the lift.
7) In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and
mutter, "Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!".
8) At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce,"As God is my
witness, I'll never go hungry again."
9) In a colleague's diary, write in 10am: "See how I look in tights".
10) Carry your keyboard over to your colleague and ask "You wanna
11) Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: "Do
you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now".
12) Come to work in army fatigues and when asked why,say, "I can't talk
about it".
13) Posing as a maitre d', call a colleague and tell him he's won a
lunch for four at a local restaurant. Let him go.
14) Speak with an accent (French, German, Porky Pig,etc) during a very
important conference call.
15) Find the vacuum and start vacuuming around your desk.
16) Hang a two-foot long piece of toilet roll from the back of your
pants and act genuinely surprised when someone points it out.
17) Present meeting attendees with a cup of coffee and biscuit, smash
each biscuit with your fist.
18) During the course of a meeting, slowly edge your chair towards the
19) Arrange toy figures on the table to represent each meeting attendee,
move them according to the movements of their real-life counterparts.
And if that wasn't enough for you here is some examples of insane acts
you can use anywhere...
1) At lunchtime, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a
hairdryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
2) Tell your children over dinner. "Due to the economy,we are going to
have to let one of you go."
3) Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries
with that.
4) Put your rubbish bin on your desk and label it "IN."
5) Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten
over his or her caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
7) Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy."
8) Don't use any punctuation
9) As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
10) Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.
11) Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."
12) Sing along at the opera.
13) Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.
14) Put mosquito netting around your work area. Play a tape of jungle
sounds all day.
15) Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their
party because you're not in the mood.
16) Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name,Rock Hard.
17) When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I Won!I Won! 3rd time
this week!!!"
18) When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot yelling,
"Run for your lives, they're loose!"

*roflmao* Too bad I don't have an office job. I'm still a poor college student. Somehow I will have to find a way to work some of those into my daily routine, though.
Thanks for the laugh.
