Default Office pranks

Does anyone have any good ideas for harmless office pranks?

All of the desks in my classroom were upside down when I came in this morning. I need to get the secretary back.

THat one is not bad. I'd have to buy my own post-its because I would feel bad using the school's.

I've seen offices filled with balloons. Party streamers tacked to the ceiling. Completely moving everything out. Anything really good like your desk would be lots of work.

Some of my favorite pranks involve office computers.
At one facility where I was employed in their maint. department I did a lot of their network wiring...
Needless to say being tight with the IT person helps a lot with these pranks...

Set this picture up to be her screensaver picture...



The look on her face will be priceless!

I already did the classic take a photo of the desktop, set that image as your wallpaper, hide the icons and taskbar. She was confused for 10 minutes. She just thought the computer froze. I like that one.

Thats another good one but the blue screen of death brings out an increased pucker factor...

Another good one is if the IT person upon seeing the blue screen wheels up with an old clunker of a pc and pretends that the victim will have to use that while theirs is being repaired...

"Do you remember how windows 98 works????" LOL

A few years back, I exchanged a guy's telephone handset for a zucchini. I even plugged the wire into the end.

Also pulled off several of the keys and swapped them on the keyboard (guy was not a touch typist).

Put an opened can of sardines waaaay to the back of the top drawer.

I little bit of this soaked on a rag tucked behind a desk drawer works well...

I once had a co worker drive around for 3 days with one of these on his bumper before finding it....
