For clowns, mimes, assistants and the like who want to actually be funny without resorting to griff!

- Set the confessional's intercom to 145.9 (standard radio)
- Make a monkey clone of yourself. Dress it up. Drag it around.
- Order a bunch of clown/mime masks, or use the sexy masks from the autodrobe or the luchador masks from fitness. Dress genetics' monkeys in these masks.
- Replace all the soap on the station with syndicate soap.
- Fill the toolboxes from assistant storage with donuts.
- JETPACK PLUS SWIVELCHAIR.

I've seen clown who hid in a locker, slipped people with banana and then he would come out, say that they won and give them little something as a prize. People generally were pretty happy. I liked it so much as a security officer, that I hid in a locker near him and protected him from jerks.

As the Mime, I'll just go around and shut off all the lights. People very quickly jump to blame the Engineers and start panicking about not having power, even though it's obvious that the light switch is flipped.

Start a folder collection. There are people who will attempt to kill you over a folder they had lying on a table and never would have touched themselves. Only player I have ever seen making good use of a folder was a detective totting an entire collection of nude selfies of the captain and his deputy.

There's always injecting cigarettes with welder fluid... or something else! :D
And when was the last time anyone used one of the clown/mime viruses?
Something involving the theater would be cool. I've asked multiple clowns to put on shows, and while they thought it was a great idea, they couldn't get enough actors/decided on WGW and got stopped.
It might be interesting to have a clown just be a super nice and competent assistant, and when he inevitably gets blamed for something/randomly attacked, he has a bunch of friends to back him up/start a station death spiral.

One time as an AI, the clown PDA'd me asking to announce that there was a fire in the threatre. The clown wrote the word 'FIRE' in crayon on the floor in there.

It was one of the few times a clown actually made me laugh OOC.

I like to pretend to slip people and slip myself and sometimes tell dumb jokes.

And immolate myself to protest the oppressive regime of nanotrason

I like to win the crossbow, cap gun, and toy sword out of the arcade machines and run around the station shooting at people and turning off and on the sword. Really freaks people out and gets security on my tail. I do that as an assistant though, not as a clown.

As far as I know, upgraded sleepers don't dispense sleep toxin.

Good way to make sure cloned folks aren't cult, I guess.

I used to slip folks and steal their shoes. That doesn't get old.

It is a bit too weak. Construct mania was promising but I guess the new plas steel requirement and needing to research shells made it a bit harder to start up. The strength before was just riding on rev's coat tails though.

some of my pranks:
-aggressive grab + head area + open toilet = swirlie (careful not to do it before one is done or you'll just bang their head on the rim)
-slip someone, put the slip object and the slip-ee in a container (locker, bodybag, etc) and close the container. whenever they try to move after the stun duration it makes the container open and they just slip on the soap again. rinse and repeat.
-arcade machine prizes can be a treasure trove for pranks. cap guns rapidfired around anyone will probably freak them out, fake syndi hardsuits with your ID hidden can be funny, or fake a breach by using some space floor tiles and fake debris (wire pieces, uprooted floor tiles, etc) and rest in the middle while screaming for engineering.
-as ling, cut off your own head and be the headless horseman (then get lynched for valids)
-as tator, use chameleon projector to didsguise yourself as sentient objects around the station to talk to the crew with (then get lynched for valids/they think you're a morph). one of the better uses ive seen was a tator who disguised himself as a nuke op cardboard cutout, broke into the bridge, and demanded "dat fukken disk"
-put your drug of choice in cyro (my personal go-to is pangalactic gargleblasters)
-make a fake bomb with an empty plasma/oxy tank and throw it at people
-have fun naming different things (medbots named "im actually full of lethals", etc)
-as CE, use the station blueprints to rename areas other than your autism fort
-throw llamar/fake ayys at people
-disposal poop loops (be sure that it has an escape route / a place for people to breathe once oxy in it runs out or admins will get pissy)
-fake sacrifice runes can freak out less experinced players / maybe get the gods to give you something if you gimmick hard enough
-people dont use /me texts enough. use them to do whatever is funny, its more effective than you think (but for FUCKS sake put periods at the end or i will lynch your ass)
-strange objects can range from funny to lethal depending on use. give them to people as "gifts" and watch as they stun themselves/slip themselves/spawn corgies. or if the clown is pissing you off give him an exploding one and watch him float naked in a mini-breach he created (not really harmless but sometimes they deserve it)
-if you know how (its really easy), reroute disposals to certain rooms so they quickly become filthy. can also be used for an unconventional break-in method if you have less than benign intentions.
-make newscasts about made-up shit, whether its pretending to be an alien taking pictures or a tabloid concerning a forbidden relationship between two crew members.
-put suicide hopline bodies to use--drag them around beating them and laugh/cry as sec arrests you even after you explain it, or take them apart in the holodeck surgery for everything from making clubs out of ligger tails or literally giving your crewmates a hand (before getting lynched for shitty humor)

im sure there's more i can think of later, ill come back when i think of em

- Rearrange maintenance tunnels.
- Completely dismantle captain's office right down to the plating. Remove the leftover material (bonus points if you can get in and out without being discovered)
- Laughter chem syringe gun
- Fill botany plant bags with the hilarious produce of your choice for ease of use (hand label them Fun Bags for additional puns when security inevitably confiscates them)
- unsecure firelocks, fill a hallway with them
- convince HoP to make your clown-curity. (bonus points for not getting rid of clumsy mutation)
- Convince genetics to give you invisibility, lie down somewhere busy, drop soap/peel just as people walk over you. (Bonus points for having your PDA window open so you can honk hands free.)
- Get freeform law board, and an AI upload. Treat each law as a diary entry rather than an AI law.

I've seen this being done once. The thief literally stole EVERYTHING, the plating, the wiring, the APC, even the airlocks. This game doesn't have facial expressions but if it did the one on the face of the captain when he found out would have been hilarious

Use the bookbinder to make a book titled "curiosity".
Cut it open and put a proximity-lube grenade in it and leave it somewhere.

Alternatively, put a single tank bomb in it to make a harmless prank, harmful.

To be fair a lot of things fit UNDER books.

Another one to do is get a locker and cram it with as many monkey cubes as you can conceivably fit, then haul the thing into pretty much anywhere that would be inconvenienced if it were to be suddenly filled with a shitload of monkeys before extinguishing it. The captain's office is a good one.
