Today I am beginning a new series of posts called “Friday Funnies”. Friday Funnies are exactly what they sound like, fun and funny things posted on a Friday. Now, these are not exactly shenanigans or full-on pranks, but they are funny things that I think are fitting with the theme of this blog. I won’t put one up every Friday, just when I feel something is appropriate.
They might be anything from a funny screenshot I took, to a silly mini-prank, to a contest where I ask you to submit a caption for a photo, to a neat project I’ve been working on! Enjoy!
Funny Photoshop: Death Certificate Directly below is an actual advertisement Steve F. and I saw one day last year while checking his email. It just seemed silly, but not silly enough. Below that is how I improved it.
Last night Trumpypoo himself was in Cincinnati, so I figured I ought to show up at the protest scene to lighten the mood.
Most of the protesters thought it was pretty fun and silly, it definitely got a few good laughs.
One trump fan even called me a hippy and told me to get a job. I am very proud of this achievement. My parents are as well. (I responded by requesting him to tell me what color the dress was, to which he answered with a raised middle finger and more employment related encouragement)
So NKU informatics department streamed a live feed of the first 2016 Presidential debate in our Digitorium. They also had a live voting count and a live twitter comment feed on screen… Its as if they assumed we wouldn’t hijack it for Trump and Harambe memes!
Or at least thats what I did with it.
Every single tweet got a chorus of laughter from the theater! Thrilling to say the least. It made the debate buffoonery go down much easier.
Here are a few of the tweets, all from my various random fake twitter accounts for shenanigans (these accounts will be featured in several other shenans in the future!)
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.
Last week I moved into my new apartment near NKU. Seeing as my apartment windows face the main road of the complex, my dear friend Conan has been on guard during spooky late night hours.
You know, just greeting the neighbors.
Say, how much is that Handsome Barbarian in the window?
Office chair riding has long been one of my favorite forms of recycling! But once last year me and my bandmates at the time ended up being the the talk of the day on the national radio station K-LOVE after one of our neighbors called in during a caller segment asking “what is the craziest thing you saw this weekend?”
So yeah. One of my previous bands was on K-LOVE. Not for our Christian rock music though. For riding an office chair behind a car…
Unfortunately the segment wasn’t recorded, so I can’t show it to people… Highly disappointing.
Anyways, for several years whenever we have an office chair to be thrown out, we give it one last good use. With a helmet and kneepads, and a car to hold on to, a simple office chair can turn into a ton of fun!
You can only get up to about 15 miles per hour before the wheels start giving way or you begin to topple.
We have rode countless office chairs, and every time the wheels melt or break off at about the same distance, which if your wondering, is about 1 mile.
Apparently office chairs are designed for 1 mile of rolling and have a top speed around 15MPH. Now you know!
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.
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 :'(
This past weekend, Zach R., Derek K. and I dressed up as the classic “walks into a bar” gag and, well, walked into bars in Clifton and OTR.
we really committed and got all decked up in nice costumes, and it paid off.
Not everyone got it, but those who did thought it was the funniest thing!
Several bartenders and patrons got pictures with us. One bartender even told us that from now on, we are his “this one time when I was working at a bar” story.
all of the videos that we tried to film got messed up when my phone screen lock went on in my pocket, unfortunately. The biggest loss was the great bit we did when we walked into a bong-filled headshop in Clifton and I (the priest) casually stated to my companions “see, this is that new age religion I was telling you about.”
It worked out pretty good. Last time we all went into a bar, it turned out to be one big joke. Ha!
If an old Cozy Coupe car is being thrown out, it might as well provide someone with one more laugh. Or many people with a laugh. So that’s just what I made happen.
Basically I just put a cozy coupe in the best parking spot near the front of my dorm hall. I even outfitted it with a fake, clearly photocopied (with the numbers covered up) NKU parking pass in it. You know, just in case any of the parking goons wanted to ticket it.
It was the talk of the day, or at least the afternoon bus ride for Callahan Hall! I’m pretty sure I saw a tweet about it, but I didn’t save it or screenshot it, oh well.
It got moved to the sidewalk pretty quickly, but only after having the fake parking pass stolen.
I would love to know who took the parking pass and what they did with it. lol
Of course I went back and retrieved it later and properly disposed of it. Otherwise that’s littering, which isn’t fun for anyone.
One day me and Jeremy R. drove around Hebron until we spotted someone out jogging. We would then drive up next to them while blaring “The Eye Of The Tiger” and frantically cheer them on while shaking our foam fingers. “You can do it!” “You’re almost there!” “Keep it up!” “You’re doing great!”
A few of the joggers seemed to be almost offended by us interacting with them at first, which is to be expected, but as soon as they realized what we were doing they all would start laughing and honestly seem to enjoy the encouragement. everybody likes encouragement, no matter how silly!
