Happy April Fools Day

April_fools_day Scott Adams describes the best workplace prank he knows: Find someone who has two phones – say a work phone and a home phone. Pick a time when you know the target is near one of the phones and no one will answer the other. Call the phone that won’t be answered, then use three-way calling to call the phone that will be answered. When the target answers, say nothing but connect the three-way call. He’ll hear his own answering machine at home telling him to leave a message. (231 readers left comments with additional suggestions)

Donkey Hoty - The viewing of hot donkeys

Nava_koresh_2 It has been scientifically proven that the viewing of donkeys, real or artificial, can attune the viewer to a warm and enlightened state of mind. The viewing of donkeys can alleviate the symptoms of day-to-day life and instill a strong feeling of "donkey-viewing" in all but the most hopeless cases.

Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi…

Zen_cat Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi, "What happens after death?"
The Roshi replied, "I don't know."
Wavy protested, "But you're a Zen Master!"
"Yes," the Roshi admitted, "but I'm not a dead Zen Master."

Canned butter

Canned_butter "Help me figure out the name of the brand of canned butter my mother loved as a child growing up in Taiwan"

"Some things gain value over time, like wine or rare books. But they lose value by being used -- and so many collections are dedicated to preserving objects in pristine condition. There are a few things that actually become more valuable, or even more useful, the more they are used. I can only think of two examples: the cast iron skillet (the nonstick seasoned surface gets better with each use) and the Yixing teapot. What other objects gain value through use and time?"

Snappy songs about telephones

"How do I develop a friendship with my favorite writer?"
