Here’s a funny one…
I was a sophmore in high school back in '86. Excluding myself, my tale includes 4 participants… Mike and Rhonda, the popular couple in school, and two nerds named Brian and Mark.
The setup: I’m at my desk during 5th period english class, knowing full well that popular Mike occupies the same desk during the next period’s class. Back then it very common for kids to write notes on notebook paper, fold them up, and pass them to friends.
So, there I sat, bored, and decided to stir up trouble. I wrote a horribly perverse note about wanting to have sex with Mike’s girlfriend Rhonda. The note was very descriptive… real sick and twisted… filthy, borderline grotesque stuff. I then addressed the note to one of the school geeks, Brian, and signed off as the other dork Mark.
So I had written a sickening fake note from one nerd to the other nerd. I folded it up in the classic note passing triangle shape, and just as my class let out, I dropped it on the floor under my desk, where I knew Mike would find it next period.
Oh he found it, alright, and took the bait like a boss. After 6th period, I turned down a hallway to see Mike beating Mark to a bloody pulp. I swear I can still hear Mark gurgling and crying, “Mike, stop! I didn’t write the fucking note, Mike!” as he was being pounded and humiliated in front of a crowd of students, watching and laughing, including girls.
Oh man, that was funny. Good times.
By the way, it’s not lost on me that some of you will find that yarn to have been mean, and that’s okay, it was mean. :rolleyes: But others will think it was also funny as fuck. It’s for the latter group’s entertainment that I shared the memory.
