As you may have been able to tell, I love fun harmless pranks. Last week’s Post-It note a Jaguar prank inspired me to find other cool office pranks done with Post-it notes. My favorite prank (actually 2 pranks closely spaced) was pulled on an easy-going boss named Chris. As you’ll see, the company has some creative employees.

Chris returns from vacation … it’s immediately apparent that the team has been busy:

Post-it 1

He walks in to find the office is now short 5,000 post-it notes, and the team is a day behind on their deadlines. At least they’re meticulous, and will have plenty of scratch paper for writing up ideas on how to catch up:

Post-It Note 2

A couple weeks later, the team decides their first prank was cool, but lacked artistry … so they start on a more creative project for the boss’s birthday:

Post-It Note 3

4 1/2 hours and 1,120 Post-It notes later, the boss is immortalized in Post-Its:
Post-It Note 4

Wow, even though the photographer was running for safety, it’s obvious the boss does kind of look like the Post-It artwork … although a tad less orange:
Post-It Note 5
“Back to work everyone!”

Thanks to the gang at Marketing Drive in San Francisco for letting me use these shots! You can see all the various pranks done on Chris the boss here. For the ambitious, you can even learn to make your own Post-It photo mosaic here.

I wonder if my company will ask why I placed a purchase order for 25,000 Post-It notes … that’s not out of the ordinary, is it? 😉

    That’s hilarious. It must be fun to work in an office with people who have an awesome sense of humor.

    Been visiting your site frequently and just recently starting commenting…

    Always is a very fun read. And as far as the boss goes, it does give us bored office workers something to consider.

    I think if I pulled this on ANY of my current supervisors, their immediate reaction would be anger that I:
    a) used company resources
    b) used company time to do a prank

    Anal, not fun…yay for a boss being human and good-natured!!

    The post-it collage is sweet. We once labeled everything in our kitchen (“upper left cabinet door”, “refrigerator”, etc.) as a joke on an over-meticulous college roommate, but I don’t think we had enough money to buy that many post-its.
