Prankster tells friend that a christening is a costume party and the results are fantastic
How do you spice up something as tedious as your son’s christening? There are several ideas that immediately come mind (e.g. hiring Metallica to play), but one surefire way to make any event instantaneously more fun is to convince one of your best friend’s that it’s a costume party so that they show up dressed as a medieval knight.
Yah know, that old gag.
According to the post here is how this evil mastery played out.
Three weeks before the party we were hanging out at my place and at some point out of the blue I said: “by the way the christening party is gonna be different.. It will be a costume party!” It came quite sudden and I did expect the usual -shut up you twat!- but he just looked at me though a bit suspicious… I had an iPad in my lap and I started to search for cool costumes. We had some great laughs and talked about going as Rocksteady and Bebob. At this point I was actually sure he had figured out the scam but hey, we had fun.. He went home and I did not think more of it. Two weeks later he suddenly texted me that he had found the PERFECT outfit and asked if I had a plastic sword he could borrow.. what the… I answered: sorry I do not have a plastic sword, looking forward to see your outfit.. Even at this point, two weeks later! I actually thought he was just playing along with the joke.. I guess I was wrong.
Dynamite sportsmanship on the knight’s part for refusing to take the costume off. Bravo to both parties involved. Stellar job all around.
