How to grow a lawn on your desk

Grassclippings - Grass DeskA series of escalating office pranks resulted in an engineer returning from a three-week holiday to find an entire lawn growing on his desk.

Charlie Harris, 32, was greeted with a swathe of lush ryegrass, planted on a bed of earth, sprouting between his computer, coffee cups and stationary.

The elaborate prank was planned by Daniel Hurlbert, 33, who carried it out with the help of colleagues at the DIY marketing company in Austin, Texas, where the pair work.

Mr Hurlbert said: 'After many years of honing our pranking skills this was perhaps the best one yet.
'The idea came fairly organically - I asked the engineering team for an epic prank for Charlie, as he was going on holiday for so long.

'We bounced ideas around until eventually I said, 'he's going to be gone so long, we should just grow a lawn on his desk.'

'Charlie was shocked when he saw the desk, but he laughed. He was impressed by how much work we had put in.

'He kept the grass on his desk and still hasn't removed it. He claims it's fairly comfortable.'

The prank was the culmination of a series of escalating office pranks between the engineering staff at Home Improvement Leads.

That's quite funny in our view!
