The Tears of a Clown

Now if there's a smile upon my face…

Twenty-five things to do in a lift…

It’s extremely rare and infrequent that I use others’ words for this site but I’m going to make an exception today. I spotted this work of genius on an online forum and it very much danced on my funny-bone. People in a lift can’t get away from you – let them know it! Have some fun in a lift near you today…

1) When there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap him on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn’t you.

2) Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.

3) Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.

4) Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor you’re on.

5) Hold the doors open and say you’re waiting for a friend. After a while, let the doors close, and say, “Hi Greg. How’s your day been?”

6) Drop a pen and wait until someone goes to pick it up, then scream, “That’s mine!”

7) Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.

8) Move your desk into the elevator and whenever anyone gets on, ask if he has an appointment.

9) Lay down the Twister mat and ask people if they would like to play.

10) Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on, ask him if he can hear ticking

11) Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.

12) Ask, “Did you feel that?”

13) Stand really close to someone, sniffing him occasionally.

14) When the doors close, announce to the others, “It’s okay, don’t panic, they open again!”

15) Swat at flies that don’t exist.

16) Tell people that you can see their aura.

17) Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering, “Shut up, all of you, just shut up!”

18) Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, “Got enough air in there?”

19) Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.

20) Stare at another passenger for awhile, then announce in horror, “You’re one of THEM!” and back away slowly.

21) Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.

22) Listen to the elevator walls with your stethoscope.

23) Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

24) Stare, grinning at another passenger for a while, and then announce, “I have new socks on.”

25) Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, “This is MY personal space!”
