I'm sure that we've all pulled pranks like that.  My favourite was piping 
the output of "man" (a shell script on that system) through "Valley Girl" 
(where each "!" was followed e.g. by "Gag me with a spoon!" etc).

Well, $BOSS came into the office after a "heavy" night, and did something 
like "man uucp", not quite figuring out what was wrong; I was summoned 
shortly afterwards, as I was the only possible culprit...
