As seen on the GeekCulture home page... [Razz]

Just in time for April Fool's Day and Apple's 30th Anniversary, our pal RickMacMerc over at Macmerc.com has created a hilarious tutorial on how to build an Apple-styled remote control fart machine. Using off-the-shelf parts such as an AirPort Express Base Station, Macally PodWave Portable Stereo Speakers, and the ever-loving iTunes, Rick has put together the prankster's gadget "for the rest of us."

Fart Different! [thumbsup]

We don't need fake fart noises at our house. We have enough actual fart noises to keep us plenty contented. [Eek!]

Clever idea, but still, nothing beats the good old Whoopie Cushion (sp?).

Heh. Reminds me of an joke I played on a collegue. I found this extention you could drop onto a Mac (OS 9ish) that would fart at random intervals with varying pitches and volumes. It was her first few weeks of work and she wasn't all that familiar with the Mac OS, she was fielding an Application support phone call as her machine kept farting loudly, then softly, short, then long......I was in fucking tears laughing and she was beyond embarrased. A few week later she got me with the old take-a-screenshot-of-the-the-desktop-then-hide-all-icons-and-replace-the-desktop-with-the-screenshot trick on my XP box....I actually fell for it [Mad]

That's an oldie but a goodie.

I got a co-worker with a very simple gag. I took a Post-It and drew a happy face on it. Then I stuck it to the underside of his optical mouse.

When he came in to work that morning, his mouse wouldn't move his cursor. It would click, but wouldn't move the arrow.

So he restarted.
No good.

Ran various maintenance utilities.
Still no good.

Unplugged everything and plugged it all in again.
Mouse still busted.

Reinstalled the mouse software.
Mouse still wouldn't respond and he starting to get really frustrated.

Turns over the mouse and sees [Smile]

Good one Rick. Also explains why I only use my laptop's trackpad. [Big Grin]
