During a particularly slow day at work (I just wait tables,) when there was only one lone customer sitting at the bar, I got a few of the kitchen guys to help me out with some weirdness:

As it tends to happen, most of the staff was seated at a table having lunch, since there was no one to wait on, so I jumped out from the back of the house, and yelled:
"Mortal Kombat!!!" and started singing the MK theme while two of the other two guys came out and started fighting, MK-style, and the third pretended to play the game on a controller.

In one of the lounges at my college someone posted a pair of posters listing the pros and cons of porn. Only thing is, it was more or less blatantly sexist (it either had all benefits for women and none for men, or vice-versa...I forget which). The point is, it was supposed to be real research or something, but it wasn't. So I took a blue pen and wrote [citation needed] in the corner of both.

I thought it was clever at the time.
Insert witty phrase here.

We had an hour to kill before Parent Teacher Night.

So, me and a mate went into one room and put all of the chairs on the wrong side of the table (so they were facing the back of the room). We then removed the work on the board (bar the heading) changed the date to the day afterwards, and put advanced math on the board. The heading said something along the lines of "Order of Operations". We then put ridiculous questions down there unrelated to the advanced math we had written mainly to do with being caught by raptors (One stolen directly from the comic). Finally, we looked on the timetable, found the class that was destined in there the next morning, and wrote that above the work we had written.

Not satisfied with that, we then went to the front foyer of the school, stood either side of the door and welcomed the parents to the school and told them where to go. And we looked authentic, because the other guy was wearing a blazer and I was wearing a tie.

I dearly hope someone commented on how great we were to a member of establishment, to their shock.

Today I also walked from the school to the station without any shoes.

Also, sorry about necro-ing. This thread rocks.

a friend of mine had a birthday today, so a frend of hers got her some of those handheld fireworks. her lighter was out, so we went to where the smokers hang out and lent a lighter from one of them. to be precise, I got the lighter.
It didn't work well, so I took a while to light the fireworks. the first one I tried, the wind was blowing and it burned my thumb instead of the firework, which I didn't notice until somone told me my thunb was getting black. when I finally got one alight, I started laughing maniacally in a really loud voice (and this reoccured at random intervals through most of the day). then, I went to find some other friends, figured out how to light the lighter consistantly (it didn't work particularly well), and started looking for things to set on fire. first thing I found was some papre from someone's sandwich, second thing was my own pants. when the fire caught I panicked and turned it out with my fingers, but a bit of burning material stuck to my finger. it hurt for hours. upon which I decided that my current mission was to warn the world about what happened to me. so here it is: never set your own pants on fire, and never turn it out with your fingers.

later, I played human bowling: there was a tightly packed crowd of girls at the school hall by the stairs, and the idea was to sprint at them as hard as I could, and try running through without colliding while conserving maximum speed. after the third run they got the idea and dispersed enough so that it wasn't fun anymore. human bowling in general, or just running through crowds at top speed without hitting someone, is pretty awesome.

I like to irritate people arond me. My newest invention is so easy you would never have thought of it.

First, you prepare a trap. Get a discussion going about something really serious and/or philosophical. (Advanced Ethics preferred) For example the problem of mankind in the 21 century OR Should we or should we not forbid all cars to rescue the earth OR Is it correct to experiment with human cells AND SO ON.

Then, about after 5 Minutes when your opponent is really into the topic and you have a pretty debate going, you just start using words completely out of the picture. You can replace words in your sentence with them or just shout at your opponent. Refuse to take a normal sentece structure again. Finish in yelling things like "FIRETRUCK! CAT FOOD! LEFT! LEFT! WATERMELLON! CATHOLICS! PROTESTANTS! UNDERWEAR! CAPTAIN HOOK AND THE SEVEN DWARFS!"

Somehow irritating but somehow lame too. Need to improve my technique.

actually people do this to me all the time whenever I start having multiple conversations with them, if there's more then they can follow. having multiple conversations going on at once with the same person is pretty awesome too, though sadly most people lose you after a while. However, if you find someone truly good at it, it's really fun. likie holding hands? maybe like holding hands. I once met a girl who was aweful at holding hands. she would hold your hand until it was all sweaty and gross. also, starting raising random associations is fun.

I ask people who are standing close enough to my conversation to eavesdrop but aren't, "What's your take on this situation?" They usually get disgruntled.

I once sat in a bus in front of a woman who was talking to a friend of hers over the phone, apparantly one one she hadn't seen in years, as she was pretty much telling her her life dtory. and it was really nice to hear someone's life story, like reading a book, only you know both that it's real and that you're the only outsider to read it. one of the things she said was "my brother always said he'd marry the first girl he dated, as all girls are exactly the same. (she also noted she agreed with him, at least about the girls in the religous society he was in). that just goes to show sometimes not all goes as planned". so now I tell this whole story to people whenever they mention something that didn't go according to plan. it goes like this. astrophisics class: teacher: "copernicus didn't plan the copernican revolution". *I tell that whole story*. everyone: ...what the HELL?

All of this stuff is utterly hilarious. Personally, I do a little bit of everything. Never going the whole 9 yards like some of you guys, but I do it enough so that it adds up. Mostly, little bits of wisdom, quotes, etc. I disperse throughout the world. Sometimes I put 'em on people's cars. I also, like DaMullet said, ask people what they think of the situation (concerning the conversation I'm having nearby). Another habit I've been doing recently would be giving people advice on things I have no idea about. Usually involving "You should run up and punch him in the face." I can't give you guys exact details of what I do, as I like to change my technique every few days or so.

It's called crowd-dodging, or crowd-running, and it does rock. I've played organized crowd-dodging games with friends in the past.

As for switching to a previous conversation in the middle of a sentence, I do that constantly. Mostly because I;'m chronologically challenged. My entire extended family does this all the time to each other, though, even call enach other after two or three weeks and picking up a random conversation without even saying hello or explaining who's calling, the weird thing is, it works most of the time.

I've never had parallel conversations in real life, but it often happens online. You know, when you ask someone something and seconds after you've sent it they send something back to do with what you were talking about before and then you just get the two parallel threads of conversation having replies one after the other. Eventually one thread dies or they converge. I'd like to see one in real life though, not entirely sure how that'd work between only two people.

My senior prom was this Friday, the 16th. Having a lack of social skills necessary to attract a date, friend or otherwise, I instead decided to look like a freak.

As I said, I'm the guy dressed like a freak. Many other people were pictured, and will be credited after the show.

That was a pretty fail-y attempt at quoting there.

I'm a guy. So, here I go to a friend's house to collect some papers and a bag of anchovies, and I hang around a bit with her and her sister. After a while I usually start asking her some weird questions or making weird statements, which get me chuckles and weird looks. Some of them include:

- So, you're a girl. What's it like liking guys?
- That's an apple! You're drawing an apple! Man it's ugly.
- *drink a few cans of something (chry tea or sugarcane or orange soda), which makes them uneasy* I need plenty of nutritious sugar to keep fit.
- Your hamsters dead. Why is it dead?
- Heil to the chef, baby.

In Highschool I started an underground parody newspaper with some of my friends. We put out about 4 issues before the school shut us down.
At some point during the year the school put one of those "Drugs are bad, here are reasons" things in our mailboxes. You know, the extremely biased ones that say how weed will kill your brain? I'm okay with people saying drugs are bad and shouldn't be done, I don't like it when they only give one extreme side of the picture though. So, I wrote an article outlining the good points. ...the school didn't quite think this was as funny as I did. They called me to the Principle's Office during class, and I had to go around collecting copies of the paper. :mrgreen:

I teach at a high school, which has very boring assemblies each morning for between 5-15 minutes.

I have come up with two ideas to liven these up.

One: Obtain a refrigerator box. Obtain one (1) skateboard. Coast through the assembly in silence and obscurity. Alternatively, seal myself in the box, and make it do end-over-end walking. So standing up, falling over, standing up the other way, falling over, standing back up the right way, etc... I think that would be difficult though. I think it would look awesome as well, so I dunno :P

Two: Obtain a gorilla suit, run through the assembly, make fun of the presenter (mimicking them talking behind them), dance for a bit, then run off. Possibly whilst playing YMCA or similar bad music over the PA, or from a portable stereo. Place gorilla head on desk in each class that day. Ignore any comments or questions about people being in gorilla suits.

Take it one step further. Stick with the big cardboard box. In addition, get a fellow teacher to have a cardboard cut-out of a large, red exclamation point. Then sneak around them Metal Gear Solid-style.

Actually, if he's doing what I think he's doing, he'd stay relatively level. You've seen people walk over chairs by standing on the back and leaning them over until they topple (seen here at 3:40), I'd imagine he'd do that from the inside. He wouldn't be strapped to the box, after all.

Yeah he would, if the box was really narrow... (Ooh, divide the box into 4 squares on each side, and have a random tetris-piece going through assembly...)

Well, the original context was that of a refrigerator box, and I'm assuming he knows how to bend at the waist. The tetris idea would work best in conjunction with the skateboard idea, I'm thinking, especially with accomplices.

I was thinking of being standing up in the box, then falling forward, to lay on my stomach. I would then spin around, and this is the hard part, attempt to get the box standing again. I prefer the gorilla suit because i can easily and anonymously get in and out of it. Getting into and out of the box is easy enough, but I'd have to do it onsite. Sure, I can get in early and wait, but I doubt I'll be alone when I try to get out... Either kids or teachers will swarm the box methinks.

I like to go to the local meat market bar and play games with my friends.

The Hi Kate game : One of you points out a stranger and chooses a name. The other person must go up to the person and act like they know them, using that name. Hilarity ensues when the name is correct! Even funnier is when they know your name too.

The compliment game: Basically you just compliment everyone who stands next to you at the bar. Genuinely. This can freak people out when you start talking about the design aspects of their hair.

Double breast grab game: I go on one side and my female friend goes on the other. We each sneak up behind a man and put a hand on his breasts. The female tries to take the attention away so they do not notice my hand and beat me up. This game is risky and takes skill but we have not failed yet.

The hat game: By far the best. I sneak up behind a random lady and put a hat on her head. When she turns around my friend takes a picture of her horrified look. Occasionally you get a friendly pose when they see the camera but rage is more common. I will have to hunt down the pictures and post them for evidence.

Needless to say there is much alcohol involved when we play these.

Ahah haha haha ha haha ha.... I'm laughing like hell here at work, and everyone is staring at me. I am so doing that. Angry old lady with top hat is the best mental image ever.

Haha... I am also a teacher and have made a distinct attempt at creating antiestablishmentism in my students by leading by example. I drink out of our lab beakers (well sterilized and cleaned of course) on occasion. Every time a student asks me what we are doing today I reply with "The same thing we do every day Pinky... try to take over the world" (this is mostly because that question gets really annoying really fast). And after months of saying that, I actually had a competition between my classes to see who could come up with the best and most detailed world domination plan. I got some interesting ones.

My only other attempt at making the world slightly stranger is my very morbidly sarcastic turn of phrase. For example, when I am asking my friend if I can borrow a cigarette, I often say "Hey, want to help give me cancer?". Or my use of Shakespearean English in everyday conversation "And, I, in good faith, shall follow thy example". Not overly original, but fun nonetheless.

I have come up with a new form of sarcasm... meta-sarcasm. Saying something that is ambiguously sarcastic in a very cheerful voice and expression, so that nobody actually knows if you are serious or not.

Kudos to you. I'd never have thought of that, I'll have to use it someday.

All internet sarcasm falls into that distinction, unless you change the font or italicize it or somesuch. I do this all the time, it's more fun than a shooting a barrel full of monkeyfish.

Ya know what else is weird?Mixing metaphors extravagantly.

Either I suck at meta-sarcasm or my friends are just unintelligent because whenever I try that they seem to think I'm being serious and I end up looking like a fool.

But next time someone has a bad idea they thinks is great I can use this though:
"[crap idea]"
"*sincere tone* Wow, that's such a great idea. You should be careful your foot doesn't fall off."
"Huh?"
"It's true! My brother Bill had the great idea to cut his toenails with a scythe and his foot fell off."

Well, I figured I have become so scathingly sarcastic (after teaching middle school for a year... go figure) that I needed something new and fresh to confuse them with.

I had a teacher who would almost always answer yes or no questions by, first, silently shaking his head one way, but then verbally give the opposite answer. We fell for it so many times, it's not even funny.

I constantly use King James Version biblical syntax in normal conversation. Meta-sarcasm is a good idea, too.

Every once in a while, I just say something com;letely out of context to a given situation, or steer a conversation away fromthe original subject, then say "So, anyway..." to reply to a question posed in the origginal conversation, andswitch back to the tangent before they can get back in the earlier mindset. That usually ticks people off, but on the off chance someone does appreciate it with humor, I can usually have some pretty good conversations with them.

Reminds me of my triple entendres. It is when you say something in a suggestive manner but you actually mean it in a literal sense.

Whenever there's a lull in conversation, I usually (if I'm paying attention to the conversation) say "So... how 'bout them apples?". The intention isn't to start off a conversation, but that's happened once or twice... usually about fruit oddly enough.

Something my friends and I do pretty often is get extremely dressed up for no reason at all and go out for fast food. Not incredibly weird, just for fun mostly. (Then again, for my senior prom we went out for pizza. I'm not big on expensive and unnecessary.) I'd love to do that but go bowling.

I think sometime this summer my friend wanted to buy suits (we're girls) and go lasertagging. I'm not really sure what the point was (she didn't give me any explanation) but I think there's something that would be better than suits. Ghostbusters? Steampunk? I don't know.

Also, I have an addiction for off-the-wall Halloween costumes. My friend dressed up as a tetris block two years ago. My personal favorite is the guy dressed up like Indiana Jones getting chased around by a guy dressed in gray with a nametag that says "boulder". I never come up with anything so clever. (Though it is fun, every year a group of my friends has a "Pimps and 'Ho's" costume party, and I go as a crack dealer and give out pixie sticks.) P.S. I will take awesome costume suggestions, or maybe just straight up steal them, tyvm
HEEEEAAAAATHUUUUUUUS

If you need to get a hold of me I'd recomment just PMing me, as I come and go in phases, it seems.

I always go all-out for halloween, abut my family rarely goes with any of the theme costumes I suggest (for example, I'm Black Mage this year, suggested my sistewr be the Onion Kid and my mom be Sarda the Sage. a porkpie hat and a long, black wig over frosted globes or globes of chicken wire and that one-way fabric, and white jumpsuts with black lines down the arms, legs, and trunk would be good for BHG/BHG).

As for lasertag, a weirder option would be hippie costumes with "Give Peace a Chance" embroidered on.
