What's worse than getting obnoxious ICQ chain letters or spam messages? Well, besides listening to the Villain Thieves. For me, it's the fact that many people who spam on ICQ have it set so they won't receive any messages back from people who aren't on their personal ICQ list. When I got a message from this "c0n c0n" person, warning me in all capital letters to avoid getting files from some other person named "VIRUSD00D", I was really happy to find out that he responded to my messages. Time to reel this guy in.

Time to reel this guy in. This is one of my longest pranks by far, but I think it's also one of the funniest. The longer you read, the more bizarre it gets, as I was slowly testing how much BS I could feed this guy. Turns out he could take a LOT. Oh yeah, sorry for everything being in caps, but it was for the sake of the prank.

After years of being misunderstood, I had hoped we finally had "our" story. I was wrong.
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
Our Something Awful ICQ pranks target the worst and most idiotic folks on the Internet. Believe it or not, these ICQ pranks are all - unfortunately - real.
