Silly Things To Do On An Elevator


elevator-2Hey, c’mon, we’ve all been in this situation — crowded elevator car, eyes down on your shoes or up watching the counter light move. Surely we can have more fun than that. And yes, some of these gags have been in circulation for a while, yet while not all are entirely original, they are indeed good for a few laughs.Put on your silly hat for this one, envision it actually happening, or even better, picture yourself doing some of this stuff.
This is just a goofy list for fun :-)
