"Anatomy of an office prank"

On this week's podcast we talked about a prank tailor-made for Gus that worked perfectly. Here's how it all started with Gav:

Then JayOrDan:

What I love best about this is how prepared they were to immediately start torturing Gus.There was not a moment of hesitation when I asked them to mentally break down another employee.

We all did this for a few days and eventually gave up because Gus was not cracking. I thought that he had figured out and just refused to give us the satisfaction of acknowledging it. Little did I know, he was scouring the internet for a solution and trying to figure out how to reinstall iChat.

Our further conversation sums it up:

I was laughing so hard when Gus freaked out over this on the podcast. I wish my work was like yours.

The reaction on the podcast was worth it, it's been awhile since I laughed that hard.

Idk if its just me, but my ideal job would be to work in a place like this, where random psychological torture of an employee was committed regularly, and on the whimsy of fellow employees.

That reminds me of the old days were all the sponsors added cheese to their normal avatars. When people asked about it, we were all "What cheese?"

I was laughing so hard at Gus's reaction that I was starting to think that listening to the podcast and driving might be a bad combination.

You say dumbest jobs? I say best jobs.

I just wish his reaction was on video, the audio was hilarious so I can only imagine how the freak out looked like in person.

I concur, they have the best jobs! My job involves cleaning up after people too lazy and/or incompetent to walk five feet and deposit trash into a trash can. My only consolation is that they're laziness ensures I have a pay check... and that I'm fully justified in hating 90% of humanity.

I tip my hat to you and your two minions, good sir!

Gus' outburst on the podcast was goddamn hilarious. I so wish it had been taped! Can't wait for the RTAA of the incident!

I think that whatever video is in line for next week needs to be delayed so that this can be the primary focus next Wednesday!

You have inspired me, sir. I am going to celebrate my boss' 45th birthday by buying a whole bunch of black balloons, but only inflating them half way. It will drive him absolutely crazy.

Reminds me of the time when I switched the "default" and "busy" mouse icon on my friend's computer. For an hour I was rolling as he literally yelled at his laptop for being "slow".

The reveal on the podcast was one of the best moments in RT history. I nearly fell over from laughing. To get that kind of reaction out of Gus was priceless.

Thanks for making the week that much brighter.

Gus explosion on the podcast was phenomenal...I'd like to think he is somehow summizing a plan to get you all back, but most likely, he's just consuming large amounts of alcohol

I will say that it because of you guys that I will be killed by my younger sister for introducing my two nieces to rooster teeth and all the productions and I personally don't see any harm from it because one is a teenager and the other is a pre-teen and I personally enjoy watching my two nieces making snarky comments to my sister when she says something to them. Ah my evil plan is coming to a head ha-ha-ha.

Burnie and the team have to much fun, so politically incorrect. Love it.

All of Gav's texts are one-syllable, beside the cursing.

Ah, the "obviously superior British school system..."
