    1) At lunchtime, sit in your parked car and point a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they slow down.

    2) Page yourself over the intercom. (Don't disguise your voice.)

    3) Insist that your e mail address be:
    '' or

    4) Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

    5) Encourage your colleagues to join you in a little synchronised chair

    6) Put your waste bin on your desk and label it 'IN.' (This is a 'must do')

    7) Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.

    8 ) Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

    9) Reply to everything someone says with, "That's what you think."

    10) Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy."

    11) Adjust the tint on your monitor so that the brightness level lights up the entire working area. Insist to others that you like it that way.

    12) Dont use any punctuation

    13) As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

    14) Ask people what sex they are.

    15) Specify that your drive through order is "to go."

    16) Sing along at the opera.

    17) Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

    18 ) Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same outfits. Wear them one day after your boss does. (This is especially effective if your boss is the opposite gender.)

    19) Send e-mail to the rest of the company to tell them what you're doing. For example: "If anyone needs me, I'll be in the bathroom."

    20) Put mosquito netting around your cubicle.

    21) Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party 'cause you're not in the mood'.

    I actually tried the bin/in-tray thing once - nobody gave me any post or new work for 3 days :D

    I do the skip one, it just annoys people when they are trying to talk to me.

    22) When someone asks you a question reply with "Sorry, could you repeat that? I wasn't listening."

    23) After a ticking off from a female boss ask "By the way, how's the diet
    going?" before leaving the office.

    24) Start a karaoke compy over the intercom

    I've done the "in accordance with the prophecy one" with the odd them and variation... turns out there are a lot of prophecies in quality control...
