Practical joke - need to know how to do

Page 1 of 2  
Some people may have seen this on the web, some may have seen it as a Bonus item on the Employee of the Month DVD, but I want to mess with a friend of mine by hooking up his horn and his brakes. eg, every time
he brakes, the horn goes off. We both have a 2003 Yukon XL. I just need to know where to start poking around so I can set this up for April 1st.
Thanks in advance!

Per myk:

Some might think this is a stretch, but I would propose that it could be quite dangerous.
In some areas, leaning on the horn is a beeeeeeg no-no and having the horn blare when the brakes are applied could make some involuntarily take their foot off the brake at the wrong time before they realized what was going on and consciously over-rode that reflex action.

or better yet.. jack the diffs / front and rear end up enough so looks like nothing is going on and when he jumps in to put it in drive or reverse it will do nothing.. He will think his tranny is done.. but if he looks under will see the prank.. done this alot.. just hope he has a sense of humor

I'm sure he won't go to far down the road with the horn trick. You have to put the brake on to remove from park and the horn will sound. The only people he's likely to piss off is his own family or his neighbors while he sets in the driveway trying to figure what the hell is wrong with his truck.

Wonder how good a friend he'll think you are after he gets rear-ended because you garfed up his brake lights playing your stupid joke. Someone pull a stunt like that, frakking around with MY car, I'd introduce him to the muzzle end of my .454 Casull. If he's lucky, he'd merely get pistol-whipped with 7 1/2 pounds of stainless steel. If he's not, he'll never hear the shot that tears through his pitifully miniscule amount of brain.

Statements like this give gun owners a bad name. Guns do not kill people unless someone uses them wrong and this is not a healthy atitude. BTW if he was lucky to just get "whipped" you would have to be really lucky to not get locked up for 10 or 15 years from doing it because on minimum sentences for crimes using a gun. I do like guns, I just do not like to see them used or projected wrongly. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com

You're absolutely right. I don't know WHAT I was thinking! The .357 Magnum with 158 grain hollow points is a MUCH better round. Less chance of a round exiting the asshole and damaging my vehicle, OR any innocents standing nearby. Although the lighter gun DOES make it less effective as a bludgeon.

Hey Shit For Brains... "aquipted" and "appriciated" were not from MY post, those were in the post I was replying TO. Extract your cranium from your anal sphincter once in awhile and it's amazing how sweet the roses smell.

Messing with the brakes and horns could be a dangerous "joke" that I don't recommend. Upon identifying the culprit of a joke that caused injury or damage and you choose to "introduce them to the muzzle end," whether you squeeze the trigger or not, I hope the prosecuter is good enough to get a conviction.

Per ducky:

I liked the one by my son-in-law who had a vehicle where car stereo controls were embedded in the underside of the steering wheel.
He'd get a gullible person in the car (we won't say who.....) and explain that his new car had a voice-controlled sound system. Then he'd say things like "Next station please".... and the radio would skip to another station.
After a few iterations of that, he'd ask the passenger if they'd like to try it...

Heh heh... in the heat of the moment, a small lapse of concentration... The gun is indeed a bit lighter than stated, coming in at slightly over 5 pounds (63 ounces), UNLOADED. I doubt that I could make a case for each round weighing an additional 8 ounces...
Okay... so getting pistol-whipped with 5 pounds of stainless... STILL not what I'd call encouragement for the act of sabotage, vandalism, and assault on my person...

Per Raymond Sirois:

All the other stuff aside, it just seems like messing with another person's vehicle is one of those universally-bad ideas.

BINGO! At least ONE person out there has the insight to gleam the one important point that I was trying to make. Congratulations, Pete. You have demonstrated intelligence far above and beyond that of the rabble that infest this newsgroup.
