Best. Prank. Ever.

Friday, May 8, 2009

One of my co-workers loves the sketch that Christopher Walken did on Saturday Night Live titled "Indoor Gardening Tips from a Man Who's Very Scared of Plants." If you haven't seen it ,watch it here before reading any further.

I decided that it would be the perfect prank to fill her office with googly eyed plants. Conveniently, she went out of town for a work conference so I had ample time to move all of our office plants into her office, affix 204 googly eyes to them, and avoid getting caught.

After she got over the initial shock (see first photo), she loved it.

Here are a few more shots of the googly-eyed entourage.

My favorite cross-eyed cutie
A face only a mother could love

Even my beloved papaya got into the act
Would you trust this plant?

Erin--You make it sound like you have something up your sleeve. My curiosity is piqued.

Hey, I love your googly eye pics on your blog. I run a site where I put googly eyes on things and take submissions from across the globe:

Check it out and submit a googly if you're interested.

Stay Googly!
