I would have posted this on a similar thread but it is locked so here's a new one. I'm not talking about the pranks in MouseTails (Did some of those), I'm talking about the pranks you didn't read about or didn't hear about. It is one thing when a Skip plays with the crew, quite another when they prank their own. Here are a couple examples
Instead of loading the gun before switching the Skipper loads 2 spent rounds, then cleverly tucks the lanyard UNDER the ammo box. When the poor Skip goes to fire at the Hippos the lanyard causes the box to spill all over... effect was amazing.
Skippers love to unplug the mic but leave it in a position so it looks like it is still plugged in. Usually the other Skip wouldn't figure out it was unplugged until most of the crew was loaded, then they would scramble to try and find out what the "problem" was. A couple old skips would use their own mic, so they would tangle 2 or 3 together then leave all 3 unplugged.... was mean but funny. Another trick is to turn down the volume, that always got them too.
Once every so often the falls would be off. If both Skips are in on it you can have an amazing effect. The Skip approaching the waterfall does the usual yell etc... the Skip behind yells just as hard pulling desperately to try and avoid the boat... I've WATCHED whole crews jump on the center box scared out of their mind... mean but funny. We decided to pull this on one Skip at the backside, he wasn't told about it, made him laugh so hard he DROPPED the mic. (Asian tour group everyone ran for the right side)
I could also do a whole thing on Dock jokes... we held a Sumo match once. Water Wars... best way to beat a code 90 is a lot of cold water flying at ya out of nowhere. But I want to hear other stories from some of the older skips.
