You’ve Won A Bench
What is it about park benches that some people find so funny? True, their comedic potential doesn't rival that of garden gnomes. But still, there definitely is an odd tradition of park-bench prankery. For instance, there's the time that legendary prankster Hugh Troy "stole" a park bench from Central Park. And now we have 'Congratulations You have Won a Bench', in which two guys knock on the doors of random people and inform them that they've won a bench. Bewilderment ensues.

...That was... different. Reminded a bit of a bad Monty Python skit without the punchline. Kept my dorm-mate up though... Always a plus.Posted by Fay-Fay on Mon Dec 13, 2004 at 03:13 AM
my school used to have the most comfortable benches ever (either that, or the crusty pavement was the only comparison) so me and my friends stole one, and put it in our closest friend's treehouse. we always sat on the floor afterwards anyways but it was the thought that counted . . . i guessPosted by Ariel on Mon Dec 13, 2004 at 09:13 PM
You know, I could use a good bench for my patio. How do I sign up for the contest?Posted by Big Gary C in Dallas, Texas on Tue Dec 14, 2004 at 08:23 PM
