Friday Funny: NKU Hunger Games

NKU sends out a lot of student surveys, and while I always appreciate their interest in student input, I much more appreciate the opportunity to turn an open-ended question into something stupid and goofy.
But for real, I’d love to see a Hunger Games themed Home Coming! What could be more thrilling and entertaining than watching a member from every club fight to the death to celebrate our school?!?

Donald Trump Raps

So this past week I got hit with inspiration, and decided to make my own Trump rap song. This is the final product. I’m happy with our it turned out.

Anyone who follows my blog or knows me understands that I’m not the biggest fan of Donald Trump. But honestly, I really like the guy, he cracks me up, and he is very eccentric and truly can be an endearing character.  But I really am not at all a fan of his statements or policies or choices to use divisive rhetoric, as well as his general superiority complex and his dishonest personality. Anyways.

Sorry for the fowl language, but its all straight out of the mouth of our new president. I shuddered a little while typing that lol

I put this together pretty quick with Apple loops in garage band and iMovie.
Enjoy!

This track is Bingin’!

Helpful Answers

I’ve always enjoyed helping people out by taking their surveys. When ever NKU sends surveys to my email, I make sure to help them by giving them some fresh new ideas when possible. Here are just two examples!

Hopefully I made someones day a little better… And hopefully they will GET AIRBUD ON THE NKU BASKETBALL TEAM ASAP.

R.I.P. Good Parking

Last year, when our university housing department decided that “beautification trees” would a good use of several of the best parking spots in our already-at-capacity parking lot, I at least wanted them to know how we felt…
Or at least make someone laugh.
To that point, I think I hit the nail right on the head. I made some lawn signs in the shape of grave stones and painted them with the phrase “R.I.P. Good Parking.” I stuck them in the ground of the recently departed parking spaces and even placed some fake flowers in front of them.
twitter post
They were a big hit! Several Callahan and NKU students tweeted them around that afternoon! I’m just glad I was able to express what we were all feeling in a fun, silly way.
Those parking spots were so young, it was sad to see them go :'(

Changing Sorority Girl’s Car Paint Gang Signs

Temporary car paint is only supposed to be left on for a few days to a few weeks at a time. It can actually permanently stain if you leave it on for too long!
Since a lot of the sorority and fraternity students at college were leaving this paint on their windows on for months at a time (or in some cases, as long as 4 years), I decided the least I could do is help them out with a little gag.

Basically I just changed their frat or sorority (gang sign) letters to different Greek letters in the same place. Others, like the one in the picture above, had their propaganda statements written on them, so I spell checked them. You know, to help them out. They are in college after all.

Most of them noticed and changed them back pretty quickly, but I love the idea of someone just driving around, then looking in their rear view mirror and realizing “WHAT I’M NOT IN OMICRON SIGMA GAMMA!”

Your New Background

I’ve been doing this for years! When someone leaves their user account logged in on a school computer, I change their background to this picture of an obese horse and I re-name it as NowYouWillAlwaysRememberToLogOut.jpg and then log them out.

I’ve never seen anyone leave a computer logged in with an obese horse background, so clearly its pretty effective.

And one time last year I changed a background of a logged in computer and upon logging out I realized that it was ME who had left the computer logged in… I’m a smarty pants!

The New Faces of Callahan

Outside of one of the Sorority hallways at Callahan there was a poster board featuring the “New Faces This Fall!” This poster board only featured sorority girls, even though its made by the RAs… Everyone knows Sorority girls are the best prankees! Basically it was just askin’ for a prankin’.
One day I found this old photo of a teddy bear holding a sign and decided it would fit in well here. It stayed up until the end of the semester!

Also, bonus prank! I noticed yesterday that my additional notes of Hall Director expectations are still up in the Callahan classroom! its been months since I added them! They must really appreciate the brainstorming

The Dorm Mail Crocodile

So I received this email from our dorm building manager before Christmas break freshman year, stating that in only a few days from now the dorm mail service would be closed for break, and that they could not make ANY EXCEPTIONS….
alligator m1
I found this a little hard to believe… There has to be some circumstance in which an exception could be made! I decided to try to find out, and replied with this message
alligator m2
My friend must be too scared to ask for himself! The building manager sent me this email in return:
alligator m3

Green light! Now I can really have some fun with it! I read somewhere that it is legal to mail alligators up to two feet long through the US postal service (although this no longer appears to be the case), so I thought why not go for that!
alligator m4

Unfortunately he didn’t bite… And by he, I mean the building manager. He assumed I was joking… and I was.
Though at the time, I had an elaborate idea to mail myself a box like this one

Sierra Exif JPEG

But with a speaker and battery inside that would play crocodile noises every few hours! Sadly I didnt bother to do that at the time…
Oh how I regret not doing that! That would have got me a response!

I later sent him another message (or thought I did, but now I’m realizing I sent it to myself!) detailing the beast’s condition
alligator m5

I wondered why he never replied to that! But I also wonder if he would have anyways!

Either way, my friend’s croc was pretty furious during the unboxing…

I’m still on the email list for the dorms… maybe I’ll pull something like this again!

The Poetic Response

poor Red-Type-Who must be at the end of their rope,
but for Seat-Crapper we know at least there’s still hope

This is definitely is in my top 3 favorite pranks of all time!

One day in august of 2014, while walking down the hall to my dorm room, I noticed a large note on the door to the dining hall staff bathroom… This is the note, typed in all red and clearly placed by an unhappy employee:
CAM02726

Disgusting right?!?! Like what in the world happened to make them have to put up a sign like that?!?! The worst part is that whoever was pooping on the “toilet seat or floor” and wasn’t cleaning up after themselves was also serving me food… if they were not cleaning up after themselves, they likely were not washing there hands either…

But why, in the name of all things decent, does that sign have to be on the outside of the door?!?! Where students who live and eat here can see it?!?! Couldn’t it at least be on the wall above the toilet?!? After walking by it for a week or two and being horrified each day it still was up, I decided I could take it no longer…
So I happened to stumble across a fantastic poem of a related subject online, which I then edited and expanded on. It was then printed out and heavily taped up next to the original disgusting note… This one is very doctor Seuss inspired…

That picture is pretty grainy, so here is what my “response” poem said:

All the Whos down at Who Inc. NKU, the tall and the small
Could poop without being revolting at all
The Whos, when pooping, would poop in the pot
But the Seat-Crapper, who worked at Who Inc. NKU, would not

Just yesterday morning, around ten past eleven
The Seat-Crapper started pooping at mach oh-point-seven
And when Red-Type-Who had to poop their Who-Hash from last night
They went into the staff-bathroom and got quite a fright:

There was poop on the floor, there was poop in the stall
There was poop on the seat and on every wall
There was poop on the tile, there was poop on the grout
There was scarcely a place where poop was not about

There was poop on the handle, there was poop on the tank
There was poop on the john door, oh how that poop stank!
There was poop everywhere, the new paint was peeling
Why that Seat-Crapper even got poop on the ceiling!

Red-Type-Who had enough of the Seat-crapper’s antics
suddenly Red-Type concocted a note of semantics
posting it on the door will be goodRed-Type Who said
disregarding the literate students whom the employees fed

“It’s okay at the home when one craps on the seat
It’s okay at the home when one poops on concrete
but at this place the Whos must share just the one crapper,
so when you miss the mark just simply clean it up after

You are not at home, here at the work place,
you cannot crap like you are in outerspace.
that simply won’t do here at NKU, I know it’s not easy,
but to clean it up right will make it so much less creepy”
The poop was bad, maybe Callahan’s worst ever
but truthfully the note was not all that much better
poor Red-Type-Who must be at the end of their rope,
but for Seat-Crapper we know at least there’s still hope

surprisingly it remained there for about a week before it was removed! Unfortantely they left the orginal note up, fully ignoring my polite way of saying “this is disgusting, students don’t want to see this”…
So I made a second note that was much more direct to that point
It was even formatted exactly like the orginal!

1412378042179 good
They took that one down two days later… With the original still up…

What vile things must have been occurring in that bathroom to make that note so critical to keep posted there!?!?!

Finally I just decided to deface the note that had been defacing the basic decency of every student who ate their…
CAM02894
keep it up!

they took the note down and it was never seen again…

Success!
