This practical joke came out of a comment from one of my other ‘ibles (which was inspired by another ‘ible.)
Here is a link to my original ‘ible…
Simply, it’s just a quick file that you add to the target’s computer that makes it talk when run.
First, I’ll show you how to make the file (it’s only a few lines of code,) then how to put it in the startup of the computer. Note, I’ll also add a way to hide it even better if you want to be really annoying.
Step 1: What it does and the Boilerplate
This ‘ible will show you how to create a file on the target’s computer that will speak whatever message to you want when they start up their machine. This prank is pretty limitless. There is no end to what you can make the computer say, and it’s undetectable unless they are looking for it.
Some ideas might be…
“I’m sorry Dave, but you can’t work today”
“System error, call someone smarter than you for help!”
“Really, again with just turning me on and going to work”
Or, my favorite…
“Help, BAD TOUCH!! BAD TOUCH!”
When it runs, there is no indication of what is going on. Even better, they may not realize that you put the file there and they may not know how to remove it.
In a ‘cubicle farm,’ this joke could provide entertainment all day as people start up their machines and don’t realize what is about to happen to them. And each person could have a different message tailored to them!
As with all ‘ibles, please use this one responsibly. With knowledge comes personal responsibity. Don’t abuse it.
