Beware the backrooms of the Internet

What happens when two sex-hungry straight guys, thinking they are IMing “SexyBabe”, unwittingly end up talking to each other? This is the basis of the Skype prank:

A profile is put up with a girl’s name and picture, and put in “Skype me” mode. Within minutes some seedy guy will invariably try calling/chatting, and there’s a little program I made running the whole time which will partner up people 2 at a time, and send messages from the first person to the second, & vice versa. This way both people think they’re talking to a girl, when they find out, well, they’re not normally too happy about it…

Check out a random transcript of one of these conversations for some much-needed post-Katrina laughter.
