Who’s talking? Workplace double phone prank.

This can make for hours of fun. Play pairs of clueless co-workers against each other by setting them up with a simple cross-line experiment.

You need a unsuspicious office or meeting room with working phone connections or cell phones for that matter. Gather your friends or even a bigger crowd to enjoy the fun. In this case speaker phones work great. The better the quality the more likely you’ll experience a couple of long, confused conversations.

Get two phones into place (test before the prank).

Now, put them next to each other. Have a list of people who match or don’t ready. For example: know of two guys who can’t stand each other and get into regular cock fights? Great! Contrast in ranks work great or entirely unknown-to-each-other folks.

Dial the phone numbers of two other co-workers you wish to “surprise”. On the ring, hold the phones together, speaker to microphone, so that one of the phones can hear the other and vice versa.

Don’t interfere, don’t do anything, the “callers” will do all the acting. If you can, switch of caller ID recognition or use cell phones unknown to the internal phone network.

You can even do this in private among friends and family. Record the whole thing for later use (at parties for example). You might even catch some really nasty stuff. Go for the most fun experience setting up the boss with a couple of suck-up’s on a Friday night or Monday morning.

Better even right before an important meeting. In that case make sure, you’re not invited. In fact, you might want to make sure not to see the prank victims for a while or your mimicry might give away too much.

If someone tells on you: good luck for a new job. But hey, THAT prank should really be worth it. And who knows: you might have recorded something that saves your butt!
