    This guy's joke wasn't even halfway clever. If I were his boss I'd strongly suggest that he buy a few pizzas for the department as an apology. But I really like Unassisted's revenge plan, too.

    He should have his butt kicked.

    Not cause it was all that mean.

    It was just lame.

    Of course (no offense to accountants everywhere) but when I think *clever prankster*, I usually don't think accountant.

    Exactly, it seems to me that the first rule of executing a prank is to make sure it is funny.

    For example, when I was in college I had a friend who was a notorious control freak (to the point of occasional mild paranoia). While he was out of town for the weekend, his roommates broke into his room and turned everything 90 degrees clockwise--from the desk, to the bed, to lined up pairs of shoes, etc. Even the prankee had to laugh at that one.

    No. Not clever at all. It's like walking up to a co-worker in a crowded break room and kicking him right in the balls full-force.

    It has that degree of ingenuity.

    Oh, you'd be surprised! My first couple years of college I majored in accounting and those people were the worst (or best, as it were) at practical jokes. Gotta do something or the number will drive you insane...

    That dude's lucky I'm not in his department. I'm very serious about eating lunch on time and I get pretty cranky when I don't get fed...if I actually had someone to blame....ooooh! I'd steal the guys lunch for a week. Wherever he went to get his lunch, I'd follow him and take it. I'd prolly start eating it before I walked away. I'd dare him to say something...if he raised a fuss I'd dump it on him. If he touched me, I'd snap his little accountant neck!!

    Maybe it's time for my sedative again...

    Guy thought that was funny, eh? Is his name Michael Scott?

    Take him out to lunch. Make sure someone besides him drives.
    Then strand him. That is just as funny and just as original.

    Really, I can't believe anyone still plays pranks on people at the office.

    The majority of the people out there are just too uptight and self-important to take a joke and you're just as liable to get fired when they complain as you are to generate a laugh.
