I remember an old girlfriend and in the course of time we came to cordially loath each other. My friends and I had picked up some itching powder, so one day I feigned interest in one of her chemistry experiments. She had conveniently worn a midriff shirt. It was easy dusting a little of that magic powder down the backside of her pants. About 10 minutes later my name was being screamed from across the chemistry room in the most hideous shrieking sound you can imagine, and on that note my lab partner Kenny said in the most deadpan voice “You only hurt the ones you love”. That day still brings back fond memories.
We picked up some sneezing powder at the same time we purchased the itching powder.
Eugene used to have a theater that played midnight movies, (can’t remember the name of the theater – The Rocky Horror Picture Show played there often). I forgot to bring my statistical calculator, but I’m sure we hit about 15 sneezes per minute at the peak sneeze volume. About 10 rows in our vicinity caught on, and we had a small chorus laughing our heads off at every sneeze.
I could probably write a novel on this subject. I truly regret missing out on the night my friends stole the Deathmobile from the “Animal House” set. They filmed part of that movie in the town I grew up in. My friends ended up crashing the Deathmobile into a ditch. It did however, find it’s way back onto the set.
Anyway, anyone have some wholesome practical jokes you played when you were younger?
