    So I started doing this new thing...

    I was bored today and sitting in org, im playing a new alt and leveling engineering. Long story short i have 14 explosive sheep in my inventory... They are only worth 1.2 gold altogether so they are barely worth selling. I notice a mailbox nearby. The first idea that popped into my head was to send them to a friend and make some joke that they probably wouldn't even find funny. That's when it happened.

    Some guy walked by with a name I liked. Why not send these 14 sheep to this guy? Surely he would enjoy the surprise! Who doesn't like opening a mailbox and finding 14 sheep stuffed in there, and wait THEY EXPLODE? This is like Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) but with EXPLOSIONS. It was at this moment that it struck. My idea. I'm going to travel Azeroth, the Outlands, Northrend, and Pandaria to find the most obscure and (probably) trivial objects that I can find and send them to random people I see logged into the game nearby me when I get to a mailbox.

    I CHALLENGE YOU FRIENDS. I challenge you to do the same, go out there, find something weird, whether it be a pretty rock, delicious cave mold, explosive sheep, or some of the zestiest damn clam meat you can find, and send that to someone random. Bonus points if they respond comedically, and even more bonus points if you post the funny response on this thread.

    I'll go first. (my character's name is valuemenu btw)



    The bottom got a bit cut off, so here's the full letter, I didn't fake this, it's legit.

    My grandfather passed away recently, he used to say to me "Valuemenu," he'd say, "Valuemenu, never underestimate the value of clams. Especially the zesty ones."

    I never forgot that great man, just as I'm sure the victims of the great clam massacre won't forget his name. "Tom, the clam-gorger".

    As I said, he passed recently and left me these clams. I've always hated clams. I thought you should have them.

    How do I know you? You're in the AH in front of me right now. I'm watching you.

    Now get out there and have fun.

    Copper, copper copper.

    I enjoy copper, do you enjoy copper?

    Let's find out, here is some copper.

    Be responsible with it.

    Here's a list of things to NOT do with your new copper.

    Do NOT:
    -Eat it
    -Throw it at children
    -Force children to eat it
    -Throw Children
    -Eat children
    -Melt it down and drink it
    -Melt it down and reshape it into statues depicting filthy alliance champions
    -Get rid of it (it's a gift, be grateful)
    -Ask me for more

    DO
    -Enjoy it

    I'm watching you

    It hurts me to part with this great treasure, but it is time for me to move on, someone else needs to have a turn enjoying the wonder that is...

    my old [HEAVY STONE]

    Whether you choose to make it into a paperweight, or put googly eyes on it and call it Jessica Biel (ooh-la-la), it is your choice. But really, those are the only two choices. Really, only the second one is viable. This rock doesn't handle paper well, it actually loses to paper in a popular game we play.

    Take care of Jess Biel

    I did something similar to this recently actually.

    I was wandering about Shrine gathering flasks and stuff before raid, kinda bored since it was a Tuesday so that means everything reset. Well I see a hunter randomly toss a trap across the bank room. I walk up to it and do a /s "Hey you! You you, hunter (can't remember the name) I know this is yours come over here!" He spun in a circle then fired another trap at the same spot. "Sir you must refrain from leaving these traps about, Pandaren are very inquisitive folk and someone could lose a paw because of your shenanigans." The hunter walks over and goes, "Why should I? I do what I WANT" and starts dancing. (at this time a pandaren player who was walking by slowly starts creeping twords the trap).
    I say to the hunter one more time "Sir please, the Pandaren, they just don't know better. The Shrine of the Two Moon society would deem it a great aid to us if you would stop your actions." At this point, the trap despawns, right as the pandaren was about to step on it too. The hunter does a /cry and says "I.... I am sorry I just wanted attention."
    I reassure him "Do not worry, nobody was harmed. In fact, you seem to have learned from your ways! So you will most likely receive a mail from the SotTM society soon with a small reward." The hunter does a /shrug /cheer and /bow then runs off. At which I tell the pandaren to go about it's business, and he logs out just as I say it xD
    So then I look back at the hunters name and go to a mailbox and write him a little note from the "Shrine of the Two Moons Society" and send him a Primordial Ruby I had in my bag at the time, saying that the gem is quite precious, and it is a reward for being such a help in troubled times.

    It was absolutely hilarious to see him just aimlessly and randomly go along with it. The real kicker is that after I was going to send 2 half stacks of int and agil flasks to my bank alt, but forgot I had sent him mail. I send mail and it auto goes to him because I never changed who would receive it, and by this time I notice and accidentally write my bank alts name then realize what I had done, his name already long gone in the chat box xD Luckily, he logged on today for the first time ina while and sent me them back! Maybe because I randomly sent him a gem, or maybe he was just kind.

    Long story sorry x.x

    I actually do something similar, although it's a little bit less friendly. I have an alt called Goblinmafia which I use to send rotten bear carcasses along with friendly advice to people who repeatedly undercut me on the AH :<

    Truly epic. If only there were severed horse heads to send them instead.

    When I logged in after Christmas I had a letter in the mail for me. I did not recognize the name on it. There was no text in this letter. Attached was one piece of Coal.

    ...yeah.
