OK funniest moment 2009

Post by pandasex » Sat Sep 12, 2009 12:47 pm

mine was seeing an older guy (around 65) looking wayyyy toooo hard at a topless women (hot yes) while she is walking opposite direction he is riding and then

BAM right into a pole......

I turned around and went to ask him if he was ok. Then another guy asked if he needed to see the med tent. He said he was fine and asked if he hurt the pole LOL
I told him "don't you worry about that pole HOW are u?"

im still laughing
I have post playa depression :(

Mine had to be watching one of the other barbarians at Barbarian Camp tell another burner that they could do the rope swing challenge of the obstacle course, "backwards, forwards, and upside down". He meant this as a humorous overstatement, meaning you could attempt that section of the obstacle course however you could, as long as you made it across . . .

and then watching the burner do it backwards, forwards, *and* upside down. :)

Whoever you were, dude: You rocked my day.

Naked guy running after a water truck. He hit the mud, sliiiiiiiiid and did a faceplant. Then the water truck shut off the water and drove away. Bummer for that guy but man he provided us with great entertainment!

watching people who said they could handle spicy stuff start to tear up and cry after taking a shot of our insanity vodka.

They got a good laugh out of it themselves after a few minutes :)

There was an older, naked guy on a segueway circling around and around a pole dancer in Lustre Village. He circled clockwise, he circled counterclockwise, he would speed up then slow down while he licked his lips and shot her Fuck Me eyes. Eventually I got on the megaphone and told him to dance or go the fuck home. So he got off the segueway and climbed on one of our dancing platforms. Best sense of humor on a dirty old man EVER.

Darwin on the Pot

Post by falk » Sat Sep 12, 2009 3:24 pm

Darwin on the Pot. Bloody brilliant. Hung around for like 20 minutes to see the expressions on peoples' faces.

Our favorite was the ones who arrived on an art car from the other side, and *should* have seen the joke, but I guess we see what we expect to see.

Woman jumped from the car, ran to the potties, yanked a door open and shouted "Those FUCKERS! How could they do this to a pregnant woman?"

Best. Prank. Ever.

too many for one post ...

but one that sticks out was at ygmir's camp. someone started playing a ukulele, and suddenly all of these instruments appeared, and we all started playing nothing in particular, which was annoying enough ... then yg pulled out this duck-call thing simon of the playa had given to him ... it made a god-awful noise, and he found every annoying sound it could possibly make, too ... and we all just kept playing, while people on the street gave us dirty looks and ran away ...

i was only sorry that dougly missed it, he was hoping to find some acoustic jam-sessions...

*giggling*, that was fun........

and, the wonderful "call" Simon gave me, well, I could make it sound exactly like an infant crying or screaming.....every person with paternal instincts came to an abrupt halt......and looked at us like we were being immature or something...........

how could that be?

"Are you looking forward to the new movie?"

Post by Shawnster » Sat Sep 12, 2009 9:32 pm

I was sitting at one of the camp bars when all of a sudden a dude in an amazing Iron Man outfit turned up. He could barely move, and needed helping just raising an arm. Anyway, some guy at the bar wanted a picture with Iron Man. While they're posing together the guy asks, "So. Looking forward to the new movie?"

Uhm, I think it's safe to say, yeah...

It was great fun lol

Definately when I came around the corner at Opulent Temple and the head of the flamethrower on my MV caught on fire...and then the fire extinguisher failed.

Frekkin priceless moment.

I wish I had a pic of Zulegoona doing the back and forth.

Maybe when I shut down the gate during exodus?

Or when I found out the yellow bike I used wasn't.
Just someone painting their bike green for the playa.

Putting a campmate out seems funny now.
Wasn't when he was on fire though.

The Bacon Escalation in the portos near us. Someone graffitied in a girl holding her heart and some trashy sentiment. I think it was "Love is all there is, recognize yourself as love". Then someone scratched out Love and put in Bacon and made the heart a sandwich. Then bacon was scratched out and Bacon returned. The next time, the word bacon was all over inside the stall. Then it was rubbed out in a few places, only to reappear.

My kingdom for a sharpie.

on sunday, i partook in the "does it taste like whiskey" game at Gigsville. after affirming to a very drunk person that what was written on his forehead was not "fucker" but actually "it says your awesome", I kept on my way, got a greenbike, and hit a makeshift ramp outside someones camp.


not exactly a moment, but definitely a humorous highlight

I attached a tapestry around the open hatch of my van for a shower curtian. After I showered I discovered that I forget my shoes. Not wanting to walk on the playa with clean feet I crawled into the back end of the van.. catching the tapestry with my foot, the tapestry fell down & I gave all my neighbors a VERY full moon. :lol:

I laughed so hard it hurt. Hanging out with bad advice camp behind Kostume Kult, I giggled and giggled as we came up with bad advice.

My favorite: if you need a place to store pickle relish, try your pussy. NASTY, horrible visuals but oh so funny. I'm laughing now typing this.

Points to Bad Advice Camp for not wimping out and shutting down early.
They were giving questionable advice late monday night.

I knew someone in hushville who got kicked out of the Bad Advice booth for being too good at giving bad advice.
He couldn't stop either.
He was giving himself bad medical advice as he was being carted to medical.

One of my friends is sitting in front of our camp with a megaphone heckling passers-by when a car drives by. "SLOW THE FUCK DOWN!" he yells. The car obediently slows down. My friend gets a grin on his face. "You know what? Stop." The car stops. "Alright, now back up!" The car starts backing up.

Priceless.
"No, dude, I'm not going to kiss the cat. You people are sick. I'm outta here."

Don't think it was the funniest but the only one I remember clearly 'cause it happened at home off-playa. We took the camp rugs across the street to the local baseball field, draped them across the outfield fence and began beating them with sticks in an annual vain attempt to get them clean-er. A massive cloud of dust sprung forth immediately and headed towards a group of 11-12 yr old kids playing a pick-up game. They looked over at us with big WTF expressions on their faces. Within a few minutes they gave up the game and ran away with us yelling "Pussies- we've been breathing this shit for a week!"

Had to be either Chef Lisa @ Tuna Guys directing her Special Fucking People during the potluck Monday (late) night.

Or...

The enchanting songstress/ukelele player Belinda doing her mashups around the 9:00 burn barrel that same Monday night. I especially enjoyed her rendition of Marilyn Monroe's "I wanna be *** by you". Boo boop de doo.

Oh, the "On Broadway/Norwegian Wood/Tequila" mashup was priceless.

What great burner women. Hallelujah!

Around 4am, I was back at my camp, getting ready to turn in one night. It was quiet. Suddenly, a carload of DPW folk comes rolling up in a convertible blasting "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John, and parks in the street right next to my tent, all of them singing along melodramatically, standing inside the car and dancing on the hood, setting off firecrackers, drinking beer, dancing, one guy continuously and majestically waving the American flag back and forth. That song has been permanently reformatted in my mind and will always remind me of that bizarrely magical and hilarious moment. :lol:
