Troll Sparty

Submitted by MGoBoz on June 21st, 2017 at 8:08 AM
A friend of mine started a new job and unfortunately (fortunately?) has a Michigan State fan sitting right next to him. There's a prominent Michigan State flag featured in this individual's workspace. It's even more blatant because the job is not located in Michigan. Any ideas for how to silently troll this person? It being a new job and all, my friend doesn't want to be obvious that it's him. I suggested three and nine but that's a little hard to do without this person knowing. Much appreciated!

This is one of the best burns I have ever read.

Here's my suggestion: have the guy spend the rest of his life being more intelligent and successful than his Sparty co-worker. That should do it - he won't even realize he's being trolled, but everyone else will know.

and make a friendly, permanent lunch bet on the outcome of the game for as long as they sit next to each other (no point spread)

 

after buying 3-9 lunches over the next 3-9 years their friend may move 23-32 miles away to a new job

I'd suggest to tell your friend who just got hired to focus on doing his job and that pissing off a coworker immediately after you are hired isn't what a Michigan man does.

people on trips around the world along with a large Michigan flag. We had pictures taken and sent them to him for over a year. We used a dummy email with captions about not to worry. " I am safe and having a good time with my Big Brother. "

How about ignoring him and his shitty football program? Not even acknowledging them is the ultimate insult and why they get so angry in the first place; hence the little brother thing.

I'm gonna guess that if the guy is willing to hang a Spartan flag he is probably one of the few fans that isn't a total douche. Those ones have all gone into hiding at this point. So trolling him may not be as pleasing as he or you think it is.

If the MSU guy has a flag hanging in his workspace, the precedent has been set that that's okay so have your friend fly his own (same size) Michigan flag. Simple, easy, and professional enough for that work environment.

Who knew.   

I can tell you your friend's not working in northern Ohio cause there's 0.0% MSU "fans" in this area.  I see a fair amount of Michigan stuff on shirts, cars, boats, ect but absolutely nada for Sparty.

Put up an Indiana flag and pretend to be an Indiana fan until the first time he says something about something bad happening to Indiana. Then act surprised and say you thought the flags were up for purposes of irony since nobody could actually be fans of such shitty programs.

Leave Baylor, Penn State, and (say) NAMBLA flags in his workspace.

Etc.
