Balloon Prank Escalation

I received the following from Mike, my guess is their cube war is not over:

In an escalating war of cubicle modification, Jim decided to take everything out of Joe's cubicle. Everything. He left a single post-it note on the desk. No picture of that, unfortunately - however, here are some pictures of Joe's response:

The Cardboard Office

Looks like Mike's coworkers put up enough with his shennanigans and struck back one time he was out of town. A lot of nice touches and detail went into the office, complete with error messages on the computer and a cardboard fridge!

Walled In

Here's a good prank I just came across, it requires a few spare parts and a little construction, but your co-worker may never even get to his cube. Here's his description:

When I returned from Japan (I spent 5 weeks there), I found my coworkers had completely sealed in my cube by cannibalizing cube walls from other parts of the office. They later added the ladder so I could get in!

Happy Foiled Birthday!

Here's a great birthday prank that I found on flickr, impressive sounds like they did it all while he was at lunch:

My coworkers played a prank on me, and when I got in after lunch, my cube was entirely covered with foil.

Post-It Note Prank

Here's a great prank that I enjoyed reading.

Damon has been playing tricks on me for a few days now. So I came in on the weekend and did some "re-decorating" in his office. He didn't see it until Monday morning when he came in and walked into his office.

His office blinds were closed, his door was shut and locked with this post-it right in the middle.

It says "Can you pick up some more post-its, we're running low".

See their site [] for the complete story and lots more pictures. Plus they got a nice pay off in the end to boot!

Popcorn Filled Cube

John L. sent this one in to me. This looks like a pretty good prank, plus gives them plenty of afternoon snacks for awhile. Hopefully no one burned any while making it, one of the worst smells in the office. Here's what John had to say:

Keri had left for a week and I suggested we fill her cubicle full of
popcorn. We blew up a bunch of trash bags with air and threw it in her
cubicle, then also put some boxes in there to help create the illusion of
her cubicle full of popcorn, not to mention the work put in with plastic
wrap. It was great, no one could tell we only popped 25 bags of popcorn to
fill her desk.

We like to welcome people back from vacation with style.

Office Relocation

Herb sent this one in to me. He was nice enough to help one of his co-workers move his office. A great idea, I'm sure he was surprised!

Matthew left the office for a couple of days. He came back to find that he no longer worked in a cube, but a brand new office... in the Men’s bathroom. He actually worked for a day in his new "office" (computer and everything was working).

Packing Peanuts!

Charles just sent me the popular packing peanuts prank. Unfortunately or maybe it is fortunately, we never had access to styrofoam peanuts. Plus we were always too cheap to buy any supplies, the thrill of doing it on the cheap. :)

Here's what Charles sent me, good job on this one, looks great!

My supervisor had gone to California for a couple of weeks and the Friday before he returned we were bored and decided to play a prank on him. We drove down to a local packing supply store and purchased 3 big bags of peanuts. Then we built a box into his window and filled the peanuts between the box and the window. The effect on the outside was so convincing he almost fell into his office. He came in early on Monday and after seeing the peanuts he figured he'd just have to push his door in really hard to open in. He was really surprised when the door opened without any trouble.

p.s. I think ultimately the prank was on all of us because his first job
for us on Monday was cleaning up the mess we had made.

Balloons for JC

More balloon fun! JC was lucky to have six weeks in Italy and to come back with his cube a balloon paradise. Balloon animals, a balloon throne and a ceiling of red, white and green balloons, Bellagio, Florence and Venice has nothing on that. Michaelangelo eat your heart out.
