It is a mere seven weeks until
April Fools' day, but I heard about a pretty well-executed practical
joke and just had to tell ya about it. It goes like this. Guy lives in a
dorm, right? Does his own laundry, right? Does some separating of
clothing like normal, not all whites together because there are not
enough white items to make a load, but separates by hot and cold wash
and stuff like that. Somehow some dorky friends of his
talked their way into the room with some bs story while the guy is
out. (now this part is a bit EWW here) They take all his dirty
underwear and wash it with a red tee he has, so that it turns pink.
They put the clean but newly pink underwear back in the separate bag
for undies. Guy does laundry on his next
laundry day. Dumps the dirty undies directly into a net bag without
examining each item of course, and the net bag goes into the machine.
In the course of doing his laundry, he eventually discovers that the
white underwear is now pink.How did that happen, he wonders?
I didn't wash it with anything red, he muses. Gosh golly darnit, what
do I do with this mess, he wonders some more. Well when he mentions to supposed
friends that his underwear is now pink and he can't understand how
that happened, the friends just about split a gut trying not to laugh
out loud. Then they act like he ought to buy them all a round of
drinks for putting one over on him. Now, from what I heard, the guy
does have a pink shirt – no, I mean a shirt that was pink when he
bought it – so he is not too upset about having some item of
clothing that is pink. But going back to these weird so-called
friends, you really have to wonder at how sick are they to paw
through someone's dirty underwear? I mean, what is down the road for
these people? Killing puppies and stuff like that? They really ought
to be stopped and I mean ASAP.
