This fantastic invention can only truly be appreciated if you can hear the sounds that it makes. Because of this, we strongly recommend reading this article while listening to it.

Pranking is one of the fundamental qualities of what makes you a man. Guys who have brothers learn this at a very early age, but all men have the urge to prank. It usually starts with one of the simplist and most common gags: hiding around a corner and then scaring the hell out of whoever next comes around said corner. After this the gag may progress into a more complex and far more funny hide around the corner and sack the next man who turns it. Pranks are like a drug; after you get a taste, you want more and more. The same pranks will soon become boring and so you must evolve and expand your prank repetoir. In fact, I think a post on awesome pranks is in order for the future. For now, I’ll introduce you to RoboDump: The Future of Pranking Today.
A man’s first successful prank is a milestone. This is also the hooking point. This will not be the last prank he pulls. He has a full life of pranking ahead of him and with each successful prank, comes the urge to make more elaborate and theirfore more hilarious pranks. Kevin Kelm is no doubt a man not scared to get his prank on. I’m assuming it took many years for him to achieve this level of creativity in his gags. Clearly an above average pranker, Kevin has created one of the best pranking tools ever called Robodump.
RoboDump is actually a very ingenius invention. All elements have been thought of in its design including:
- One downwards facing speaker. This speaker handles all of the defecation and urination sounds complete with the splashing of the toilet water.
- One Upwards facing speaker for voice effects.
- Slacks and shoes so that it actually looks like someone is in the can if anybody takes a look under the door.
RoboDump is perfect for office pranks but it could also be used anywhere there is a public washroom. Kevin used it at his office with hilarious results:
I snuck RoboDump into the men’s room at the office. Unfortunately, today turned out to be the day of a board meeting. Whoops! It still went over well; the office was abuzz all morning with gossip about the guy in the bathroom. Several people theorized it was the CFO. The janitor commented to someone in the hallway that he wanted to clean the restroom but “this guy’s been in there all morning.”
Here’s to a good man with an even better invention. A man who knows what a prank is all about and a man who embraces the manly love for pranking and bodily functions. Good show, Kevin.
