    Default practical jokes?

    our friends think their funny. they bought a house w/ some interesting 'untensil' door pull that they found to be awful. they took them off their cupboards and joked around about what to do wtih them

    anyway, they were over last night, and today I found them on our bathroom cupboards.

    hahaha

    but jokes on them. I will not say one word about them. I'd like to see how far they take this. I bet they will start showing up on our kitchen cupboards next time.
    i've swormndh to silence, he can't say a word about it. /
    lol


    now... what do we do back to them?
    anyone?

    LOL! I love a good, harmless practical joke!

    I think you should steal their new knobs and replace yours with them.

    Hmmmm.. how often do you see them? Would it be worth taking some of their cutlery each time? Do it slowly so they don't notice until they're like 'erm..why don't we have any spoons?'

    invite them over for dinner, and leave the fork as the untencil they have to eat with. then hide all your other forks so they dont have a choice. and make something like speg or something. lol

    LOL I like dashenka's idea!!

    Do we have the same friend?? I know mine bought a house with those lovely handles as well...but don't think they've bothered to take them off yet. I tease her about them everytime I'm there...guess I better keep quiet or I'll end up with the same problem.

    i like the lightbulb idea, if you wanted to keep it utensil oriented what about picking up some cheapies from goodwill/vv and every time you're there hide a couple in strange places. somewhere they might not find for a day or two.
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    how about changing the light bulb to a red one

    I like the idea of making them use the knob as a utensil

    Maybe you could take a few of their knobs and line the front garden with them

    Make your frind a fanct fork barette for christmas

    Take the “utensil“ knobs they left you and make them some beautiful windchimes for Christmas... but hang them up yourselves... all over... trees, front of house, back of house, off the back of the car...

    I don't know of any household ones. But if I were to try anything I'd plant some sexy underwear in the sock drawer of a male target... or perhaps just in the laundry... depends on who goes where the most. Added bonus for doctoring it up to look somewhat used.

    This would be the equivalent of slipping in a bogus phone number into the wallet of the various married guys I know.


    If you want to keep it away from possible relationship damage... Start sending them mail from a recently sponsored kid in a desolate location... ongoing... tell them about the nice clothes that were purchased for them... tell them about the medication they got to fix them up... the education... etc... then when it's all done have the kid plan a visit... you know, to their new owners or something. This one would have to be planned out to really work.


    ... or you could just do a flaming bag of poop.
