The "Housicle"

Brandon and his co-worker Chris decided to prank their fellow co-worker Stewart. Here's his email to me.


"So it all started as an idea to play a prank on our co-worker Stewart who was traveling out of the country for 3 weeks. The last time I was out of the office I came back to find my cubicle boxed in with spare cubicle parts, but something so simple was not enough this time around.

Before he left, we mentioned to him that we had to do something “Monumental” and he jokingly replied with something about boxing him in with drywall………….and there it was, the “big bang”, the initial spark that set off the fire that is, “The Housicle”. It is what I belive to be the ultimate Cubicle prank to date. All of the lights are on a separate switch and the Ceiling fan will surely provide a comfortable breeze come summertime. Enjoy."

Oh my goodness....those boys had too much time on their hands. Amazing! That is so funny. Has the coworker come back yet to see this masterpiece?

Just an FYI, it now has a working doorbell and we painted the upper part of the roof on the end white instead of the grey between the trim.

That is too funny! I love giving a good prank, but you're right this tops everything I've seen. let us know what happens when he gets back.

Oh my gosh! That is so much work! That is hillarious though! That is something that would be on the office!

Christine Cook said...

PS When does the guy come back?? Did Brandon do that at night?? What does his other coworkers think?? He will have to take pictures of the guy's reaction when he comes back!

Holy crap! It looks so pretty too. Brandon, please come build my kids a playhouse in the backyard.

Does this guy happen to be a midget? If not if he has any daughters they will want it to always be "Daddy Daughter Work Day". You should throw him a house warming party!!!

It looks great and all but where is the Welcome mat?

Housicle builder,

You should promote yourself to Steelcase - you might have a chance for some moonlighting gigs. I'm sure there are a lot of mid-level managers who would pay top dollar for your services.

Brandon has the best sense of humor ever. Except for you. You two combined do. I agree with Christine. Jim would do this to Dwight. Tell him to make sure to put his stapler in jello.

Brenda said...
