  Posted:Hmmm.. lets see.. me VERY silly sometimes !!I like to:Shout 'TAXI' !!! at every other car that drives past (except taxis).Wave casually at every other car that passes as if I know them. (That gets some pretty funny looks sometimes)Answer the house phone with a phony accent (usually Arabic)Put huge quantities of bath bubble stuff in the cisterns of toilets in nightclubs. (Always a laugh)Repeatedly throw invisible sticks for those less intelegent canine friends of ours.Traffic lights... oh yes, traffic lights pose EXCELLENT opportunities to make other drivers think 'what the...' Like putting some tunes on and bouncing up and down with a HUGE grin on my face directed straight at the guy next to me..(without overstepping the mark and causing a road rage incident).The best one though... take two (2) x kittens.. (about 10 weeks old). Make them all cute & sleepy so the settle down and start purring. Place one (1) x kitten over your left ear and then repeat the same with kitten #2 (two) on your right ear.What you get is a REALLY wierd mega-stereo purring sound that reverberates RIGHT through your head !! Awesome !!!

  Posted:I enjoy going into laundramats, and pulling up a chair to the dryers - the big ones, with the glass front where you can see the clothes spin. I then stare at the spinning clothes with rapt amazement, occasionally giggling and pointing, as if I were watching television. I also usually carry wherever I go a bottle of soapy water and a wand for blowing bubbles. Sitting in traffic, waiting in line to renew your drivers license, it comes in handy on many occasions. It also seems to brighten the day of people around you, and then they want to play, too. The Unexpected and Silly can be very good medicine. Besides, its nearly physically impossible to frown while blowing bubbles.Hayduke

  Posted:Well, I'm lucky enough to have a mad group of friends, we are always pulling stupid stunts in the Queen Street mall in Brisbane.Some favs: Get two or three people to stand in dramatic poses on escalators back to back, and go up and down, up and down. Dramatic poses include standing on one leg like the crane thing, standing back to back with arms crossed and heads in the air (tough guy pose), pretending to embrace except you are a few feet from each other etc.Playing this cool game where you have to try and step on someones toes - basically you hop around the mall trying to stomp on each others feet, the trick is your only allowed one foot on the ground at any time.When going up a glass lift in the Myer centre get a group of people to pretend you are being gassed to death, choking and sliding down the walls etc

  Posted:The best game I play is called "Chinese Fire Drill" although it goes under different names. Basically when you are driving (preferably in a 5 door car) whenever you get to a red light everyone (except maybe the driver) gets out the car and runs around it as many times as possible, when the lights go amber everyone just piles into which ever door is nearest and you drive off. Generally the dirver stays put unless he's got good insurance. So far we've done this is tuxedo's infront of an army truck, in drag in front of a police car and the current record is about 11 laps...------------------http://welcome.to/thehugbubble The Mug Shot Gallery MSN Poi Community Words to memerise, words hypnotise, words make my mouth exercise.

I race up next to them and smile and wave and give them the thumbs up. Get some really strange looks from these people.

Heres a few of my own silly pastimes:Antiquing is lots of fun. All you need is a handful of flour and an unsuspecting friend. Throw the flour at their face and voila! Your very own antique bust.My friends and I also are on a mission to be exceptionally nice to shopping attendant. We have a sort of competition going on about who can come up with the most obscure and polite way of thanking someone. Whenever my friend is asked by people to show them whats in his bag to make sure he hasn't stolen anything, he takes out every single item in his bag and shows it to them, empties out his pockets, etc.I bought a santa suit the other day, it was only $3.50! I put it on after I bought it and went around wishing people merry christmas, that was great fun!I also enjoy making little paper boats and sailing them in fountains around the city, it makes for hours of endless entertainment.Theres much more where these came from but I think I've written enough.

  Posted:Try this one with a friend. Get into an elevator (the longer the ride the better and hopefully in a professional building) and ask your friend what the doctor said about the rash. Your friend of course will reply that it is really bad and that he can't have physical contact with anyone for about 2-3 weeks. Just watch people move to a "safe" distance. One of my personal favorite things to do... while driving around I open the window (I am usually the passenger so makes it a little more fun for me) and just yell at people walking "I want to be a race car!!!" Wow... the looks that i get!

  Posted:Apologies for the long post, but I have selected the best ideas from a 3 page document I have.
Non-Https Image Link
Push your eyes for interesting light show:See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out things - is your subconscious trying to send you a message? Can you control what you see by pressing different areas with different forces? Would it be possible to somehow see the same effects on TV? Or for that matter, watch TV with your eyes shut doing this?See how long you can hold your breath:Play with a friend, or try to beat your own personal best.Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image:It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. This works especially well in a dark room and a quick camera flash with eyes wide open.Get yourself as nauseated as possible:Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can't even stand up.Step off a curb with eyes shut, imagine it's a cliff:To get any benefit out of this one, you have to have a good imagination. Don't step off immediately, build up to the jump. Study the ravine below. Feel the winds at that altitude. Step off and... AHHHHHH!!!!!Have a water drinking contest:To give your event an old western theme, slam the cups upside down on the tables after you have emptied them.Have a "Who is less competitive" competition:Trying to win at this will make you lose.Trying to lose makes you win which makes you lose.Not trying at all makes you lose which makes you win which makes you lose.Pour water in hand, make sneeze noise, throw water on back of person's neck:For an even bigger reaction out of the person, act like you're not sorry at all for what they think you did. Comment instead on how big that sneeze was or about how there was a lot of mucus in that one.------------------Where's the foetus gonna gestate? You gonna keep it in a box?

  Posted:The styrofoam floaties in the store is loads of fun. I take the 6-yo through the large local store and test the "softness" of various products. We'll walk around and I'll grab a pillow and bap (light hit) him with it. "Is this soft?"Then I'll let him get one and test it on me. We'll do this throughout the entire store. The above mentioned floaties, pillows, bean bag chairs, large inflatable ball toys (the 3' diameter ones) etc.With the phone solicitor. Wait till they finish their entire speach. Then ask they repeat it again. Repeat. Works best if you can set it down, put on speaker, or have a headset.I like the "acting 3" one for the phone. I'll have to try that."No, I don't WANNA!"I liked "may I speak with the man of the house?" and I'd hand the phone to the child (he was 4 last time I did this.)Pele the other day threw a temper tantrum at her son in a parking lot. She was quite loud and immature sounding. She ended with "THAT is how you throw a tantrum" to him.------------------FYI: I am not Pele.

  Posted:A good one i do sometimes at the traffic lights...
You re in a full car with your friends at a red light, and someone pulls up next to you (it works best when the people in your car are 'normal' looking family types). Stare at the person next to you with real serious freaked out looks on your faces and over dramatise the action. When the person next to you looks over at you, all of you look straight ahead and lock the doors with a serious look on your face... it creeps them out a fair bit...

Another one to do at the lights is put a balaklave on your head and lean out the passenger window at the people next to you (make sure there healthy enough not to cause a heart attack). Just stare at them and pretend to pull something out of your pocket... freaks the shit out of people! this actually was done to me by someone once and it freaked me out real good!

a short one is when youre walking along in a heavily populated space with people walking in both directions and someones walking towards you, just before they move out of your line of path, abrubtly jump out of their way, like youre dodging a fast moving vehicle...

My final suggestion is to just approach strangers on the street and pretend to be an animal of choice (birds work well, especially chickens and flamingoes). gets people laughng too.

i carry bubbleblowing liquid for boring situations
a pez dispenser for meetin new people (NOONE refuses pez lollies)
one day i went out a bought a packet of chalk and me and 3 friends played hopscotch up and down the cappucino strip in freo (major cafe street, in full view of lots of people). one friend played all his turns walking on his hands.
that same friend carries a toy rabbit at all times, and one day we went on an expedition once to photograph Mr Funny Bunny in all manner of situations. Our best was him being dispensed from a train-ticket machine.
and i skip down the street singing lots. linking arms for the 'we're off to see the wizard' song is fun, as is getting thrugh the entire of Bohemian Rhapsody, with miming and actions (did that yesterday)
try walking up to religious reps on the street and asking about their religion. The Mormans i approached were so surprised they could barely answer me. we ended up becoming sort-of friends

  Posted:This one works well alone, but even better with friends:

Find yourself a busy streetcorner to stand on, hands clasped behind your back, feet spred to shoulder width. (Also known as parade rest, to those who have marched before). Now, stay there, absolutely still for a good deal of time. Pretty soon people will start to talk to you, ask you what you are doing. DO NOT RESPOND. People may even begin to pokeyou gently, or to try to get your attention. Most of the time they walk away very, very confused. If you have a friend with , make them stand one shoulder width to your side doing the same thing. The key here is not to move a muscle. Freaks people out sometimes, I tell ya.

a great silly game to play is find a reasonably small, busy roundabout and just stand in the middle of it, in a pose of some sort, or get a group of friends and choreograph a dance (either pop or ballet works best) and dance like a MOFO!! some people even stop and watch, and our loverly addition to society, the sexually frustrated youmg (and old) males yell out some pretty funny remarks!
Another one is to find a public space and stand there, staring up.. get some peopl you know to join in and tally up the ammount of people who look up...
