when I was in college I used to swap my keyboard and mouse with the pc next to me then when my friend sat down and started to type I would type something different. The IT teacher could access our computer (or at least we all thought he could) so I would type something like " get off the internet and finish your work" one guy kicked off with him big time! so funny.

I've changed the basic colour of the font to "white". The curser moves across the screen, but the text can only be seen when selected ... very funny.

One time my friend was sitting on a computer in my schools library and some one had left up a whole science report on it. I asked him if he wanted to see something funny, he said yeah. So I did a search and replace and replaced the letter A with and inappropriate word and we had a good laugh for about 10 minutes then my friend noticed that he could not move the mouse on the screen. we looked over and the computer guy was staring at us he had frozen the computer. then he came over and yelled at us for about 15minutes. It was one of the most fun things I can remember we did. Just thought I would give a word of warning. Choose the replacement word wisely. lol

At least setup a webcam so you can catch the reaction.
