Someday the Cleaning People of the World Will Find This Man and Punish Him


I wouldn't say this is a "perfect" prank, but it's still pretty amusing. Whenever comedian Bert Kreischer checks out of a hotel, he likes to leave a little gift behind for the hotel staff.

It might be something as simple as a pair of sneakers poking out from beneath the drapes. Or an escape rope made from sheets left dangling from the window. But sometimes Mr. Kreischer gets crafty. He's turned an ordinary toilet into a blood-sucking beast. And he's fond of creating dummies and leaving them in odd locations. At first glance, an unsuspecting cleaning person might think there's a body crammed in the minibar--or a man hiding beneath a room service cart.

(Mr. Kreishcer claims he always leaves a big tip to compensate the hotel employees for the extra work.)

Very original, very weird, and very entertaining. But I really hope he doesn't prank someone with a heart condition! On a scale from 1 to 10, how do you rank this idea?

Very funny and creative! On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 7. I agree, not the perfect prank, but still entertaining.

Ehh, probably a 6 or 7. Funny pranks, but even with the 'extra tip' I feel really bad for the hotel cleaning staff... :P

Okay, this is completely off topic, but I just discovered something really freak. Open up Microsoft Word. Put the font on 42, and type in Q33 NY (The plane number of the 9/11 bombing and the initials of New York). Highlight what you typed, then change the font to Wingdings. This really freaked me out.

Haha, I really like that :)

I wouldn't rate it as a prank though, but rather a source of amusement.

And on an amusment scale of one to ten, I'd give it a 9 :)

i think it's a good prank and entertaining, but would be really scary to be the staff. 6

Ari: Having lived through 9/11, I can say--with absolute certainty--that Q33 was not the flight number of any plane that hit New York (or Washington DC) on that day. I believe you were the recipient of a hoax email. And the people behind it are neither nice nor trustworthy.

Whoops, it seems I was misinformed. I actually found an article about it here: http://www.hoax-slayer.com/wingdings-911.html

It seems this email has caught the attention of a number of people.
