  2. #1 got me rolling on the floor. reminded me of tricks we used to play on a Supervisor many years ago. This guy was one of them (I'm sure yáll know one). Anyway, to cut a long story short, we used to make him coffee and dose it with laxative & sleeping pills!! He was always dog tired and frequently dozed off in his office!! Could never understand it, he was OK at home!!!

    Sir, you are EVIL:scool:! In a pleasant kind of way.:09:

    One of my grandfather's favorite tricks was to catch a bunch of unsuspecting guests resting on the front porch and offer them some chewing gum. Fenamint laxative gum in a Chicklets box is what they got. One time my aunt was his victim. After chewing the gum for a long time she went home and her stomach started cramping on her. So, she took a laxative. My poor auntie. Took her days to recover. Grandad has been gone 30 years now and I think he is still laughing!
  4. #27: My wife agrees with this completely. BTW, I'm going to my Aunt's retirement party today. I already have the Mosin Nagant 91/30 in the car with 300 rounds of ammo, the .44 magnum (I have to stop on the way for ammo), the M&P .45ACP, and of course, the M&P .40 (my CCW).
    My wife looked at the cargo and said "I guess you are stopping at the parent's farm on the way home?" I said we had to as one of my brother's will be stopping there and would like to shoot a 7.62x54r rifle as he never has before.

    New York
    Wunhunglo, when I was a plebe at the Zoo, there was an upperclassman who was a complete, utter and total jerk. He was a bully and slimy with it, who sucked up to the officers and hazed the fourth classmen. He especially disliked me for some reason and harassed me every time he saw me, which was usually half a dozen times a day.

    One time he ordered me to get him a cup of coffee in the messhall. (Upperdorks have the authority to do this, but virtually none of them bother.) I was on the way to chemistry class and had a couple of things in my pocket from having done my homework - a water test. I slipped one drop of phenophaline into his coffee.

    Phenophaline is the active ingredient in Ex-Lax, in case you didn't know; but Ex-La uses a lower molarity than the stuff used for water-testing. He drank the coffee (Academy coffee was so awful you could've concealed cyanide in it) and about 20 minutes later had a wicked case of the trots that well and truly cleaned his guts out. The rest of the day, he spent on the pot.

    He suspected that I'd slipped him something but couldn't prove it. He didn't stop harassing me - but he never asked a plebe to get him a cup of coffee in the mess again!
  9. Cyrano that made my day !!!! We use to take chicks rideing around down the back roads and through the woods.
    We would buy some Chic-Let gum and replace the gum with Finament gum which is a fast acting laxative.

    It was so funny when n they'd go to holler'in ...Get me back to town ! Of course we then pretended we were lost.

    We'd end up pulling over and they would bail out and go get behind a tree,

    What was so funny when one had to go 2 or 3 other's had too. We would be yell'in watch for SNAKES..
    And they would huddle together behind a tree and chit.

    That's was bad of us kids to do that !
  10. Cyrano........another one on the same line. I life in a country village and there was one farmer guy who drove to the local pub every lunchtime in his pick-up and always left his aggressive dog in the cab. Well, this guy was a bit of an A&&hole and I had a bit of a run in with him and seeing as his dog always barked & growled at anyone who walked close to his pickup I decided to get my own back on them both. Accross the road from the pub is the village store, so I went in and bought some Exlax and slipped a piece into the truck cab through the partially open window. It was not a pretty sight inside that pick-up when the guy came out of the pub!!!

    #8 When my daughter was at the age to start dating I told her to watch how the boys she dates treats a waitress and his mother because eventually that's the way he will treat you. I think there's some truth to that!

    Edit: Sorry about that AH but I'm sticken with it!
