Scam revenge/prank filter: I fell victim to the prison phone scam
. I have a phone number for one of the perps (the one calls are forwarded to). I've already reported this to the FTC, but what else can I do to speed some karmic payback their way?

Practical Joke Filter: Two office buildings, clear windows. Guy's name tag (pretty big) was sitting against his desk facing out. Putting names to faces. We posted a sign saying, "Hey ***, call me." He wrote back, "What's the number?". How should we progress? [more inside]

Anybody have a clue what's going on at BovineUnite.com
? Billboards started showing up here in the Baltimore area a week or so ago. The site is registered locally, but the execution of the site seems too good to be just some local prank. So far, the only Google reference to the site is a Craigslist ad
looking for people to travel around Maryland wearing the cowsuit. What are they advertising? Skim milk? Chick-Fil-A?

Ridiculous Job-Interview Filter: We have a new person coming on my team at work. He's actually been filling in for someone (as a project manager) for a couple months and doing a great job. Due to HR formalities, we had to post the formal job opening for a week. No other people submitted for the job, and he doesn't have to interview to get hired, but he doesn't know that.

Recently on eBay, I put up for auction something I think is an obvious joke. Naturally, I've already received a question asking me something that, if answered honestly, I feel would give the joke away. Sort of. You know, it's the whole power-in-myth thing. The only way I can describe it short of posting the URL is that it's something I've created (I thought that was obvious in the picture), but given certain current zeitgeist, the impression is that it happened naturally or under strange circumstances. I checked eBay's policy page
on this, but wasn't satisfied. I'm not trying to piss anyone off or get in trouble, I'm just trying to make some comedy (and maybe a little money). How creative can I get with my description?

Imagine someone made an 6'x10' sign featuring the Talented Mr. Goatse with the caption "Massachusetts Welcomes You" and draped it over the actual welcome sign on I-95 south at the New Hampshire border. Early on Thanksgiving morning. What would happen to this person if they were caught?
