I've done #3 before...I do #9 sometimes when walking through the parking lot to my car (but only if I'm with somebody else...well, usually only...)...and I've done #17 when using my friend's ATM card (I don't have one of my own).

When I really wanted to be a doctor I paid my mom who worked at the hospital a dollar to Page me as a Doctor.

"Doctor Bluey ... report to the ICU."

I then picked up the phone, 'cause I saw how it worked,

"Doctor Lecter ... return to the cafeteria immediately. Doctor Lecter."

I've been spending way too much time with MacPhisto.

I love those...so I thought I would add a few more:
Ways to Annoy People

Leave the copy machine set to 99 copies, reduce 200%, extra dark, 17-inch paper.

If you have a glass eye, tap on it occasionally with your pen while talking with others.

Stomp on little plastic ketchup packets.

Insist on keeping your car windshield wipers running in all weather conditions, "to keep them tuned up."

Reply to everything someone says with, "that's what YOU think."

Practice making fax and modem noises.

Highlight irrelevant information in scientific papers and copy them to your boss.

Make beeping noises when you back up.

Finish all your sentences with the words, "in accordance with prophecy."

Signal that a conversation is over by clamping your hands over your ears.

When someone is talking to you yell out "Talk to the hand" and hold your hand in front of their face.

Disassemble your pen and "accidentally" flip the ink cartridge across the room.

Holler random numbers while someone is counting.

Adjust the tint on your TV so that all the people are green, and insist to others that you "like it that way."

Staple papers in the middle of the page.

Publicly investigate just how slowly you can make a "croaking" noise.

Honk and wave to strangers.

Decline to be seated at a restaurant, and simply eat the complimentary mints by the cash register.

TYPE ONLY IN UPPERCASE.

type only in lowercase.

Buy a large quantity of orange traffic cones and reroute entire streets.

Repeat the following conversation a dozen times: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now."

Try playing the William Tell Overture by tapping on the bottom of your chin. When nearly done, announce, "No, wait -- I messed it up." Then repeat.

While making presentations, occasionally bob your head like a parakeet.

Sit in your front yard pointing a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they slow down.

Ask your co-workers mysterious questions, then scribble their answers in a notebook and mutter something about "psychological profiles."

Hang mosquito netting around your cubicle. When you emerge to get coffee or a printout or whatever, slap yourself randomly the whole way.

File everything under "miscellaneous."

Wear your animated Mickey Mouse watch and repeatedly press the "It's a small world" music button and whistle along

Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same clothes. Wear each outfit one day after your boss does. This is especially effective if your boss is of a different gender than you.

Make up nicknames for all your coworkers and refer to them only by these names. "That's a good point, Sparky." "I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree with you there, Cha-cha."

Send email to the rest of the company telling them exactly what you're doing. For example: "If anyone needs me, I'll be in the bathroom."

Every time someone asks you to do something -- anything -- ask him or her if they want fries with that.

Send email back and forth to yourself, engaging yourself in an intellectual debate. Forward the correspondence to a coworker and ask her to settle the disagreement.

Encourage your colleagues to join you in a little synchronized chair dancing.

Put your trashcan on your desk. Label it "IN."

Send email messages saying there's free pizza or donuts or cake in the lunchroom. When people drift back to work complaining that they found none, lean back, pat your stomach and say, "Oh, you've got to be faster than that."

My husband and I often participate in a variation of this activity. We stand next to busy roads in Singapore and throw the small plastic ketchup packets on to the road, making predictions and waiting for vehicles to run over them. Somehow we always seem to get a chuckle or two. And to think, we are going to parents in less than two months.
