Me and my buddy sysadmin wondered how to get the fastest response from a client that was otherwise slow to respond over email. We needed to test their new email server.
So... we figured, hey... sars is spreading globally, let's use that.
The email went like "Critical warning! Your computer got infected with sars. Contact your sysadmins immediately.'
So she did. Success! Email server working fine. Tested in less then 5min, some sort of a record.

ROTFL trying to keep a straight voice over the phone with tears in our eyes.

Priceless experience for all involved. Interestingly, the client was cool enough to accept this as a harmless prank. Thank god for that.
