    Buddy shenanigans

    I went out of town last week and my buddy, Dave sent me pics of my smokers for sale. Total joke. Harmless fun. He went out of town this week and I told him I had been on the Traeger discussion forum and that one of the uses was to use a Traeger as a recycling bin. I went to his house and took this pic, then removed all the trash and put his grill back the way I found it. He might still think all the trash is still there...

    I'd recycle that Solo cup at the nearest beer keg.

    Great fun. Friends with a good sense of humor are a treasure.
    For a while at a job I had the four of us Estimators were having way too much fun. When someone would take a day off or go on a job walk, he’d come back afraid of what the rest of us would have done to his cube. We kept is mostly harmless…………..but. People were nervous about coming into our area because we were merciless and it was known as the Sarcasm Room.

    The good ole days. Definitely less politicly correct

        I am storing my son-in-laws grills here in my backyard while he and my daughter spend the first year (or so) of their marriage living in a 1 bedroom apartment downtown a block off the square. He was talking about uncovering them and checking for mold, etc, soon. I ought to fill them up with empty beer cans and such and see how many more months go by before he actually pulls the covers off those things and check them!

          Much better would be something that looks like an animal that is attached to a string so it moves when lid is opened. Just a rabbit pelt laying on a bowl would probably work.

        Probably the best prank we pulled.
        In the Word program there is a way automatically to replace a word as you type. (Meaning when the word love is typed it gets replaced by hate for example)
        Mike was gone one day and we got in his computer and modified it to replace the with “I’m a happy little pig!”. About 2 weeks went by and we forgot all about it. Well he was writing up his bid proposal at the last minute and all of a sudden he started going off “What the F#@K? Damn! Ah S&*t!!!, I didn’t type that. What did you guy do?”. We didn’t think much about it, then we remembered and almost fell out of our chairs laughing.
        We had to show him what we did so he could finish the bid letter.

          I did something similar with our company intranet portal about 10 years ago - its where we do time keeping, etc. I did it so that when Steve, and only Steve, logged in, the web browser would execute some javascript that shook the window around for about 10 seconds. Months went by and I forgot about it, until one day he came to our mutual boss asking for a new computer, or to have his reformatted...

        Best prank I've seen, one of my co-workers was on vacation for a couple of weeks. The night before he came back one of my other co-workers came in with a bunch of rolls of thin aluminum foil, and tightly foiled EVERYTHING in his cube. Chair, computer, keyboard, plant pot and saucer, cups, pens, even the couple pieces of change sitting there. The foil was so thin you couldn't even tell the nickels and quarters had it on. Took him hours to do, but soooo worth it.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

        Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

        masterbuilt gas smoker

        Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
