Here at Fun Time Internet, we don’t get a whole ton of feedback from our loyal Netizens, save for the odd “Not as good as your other videos,” “Really painfully unoriginal, guys,” or “wow u must of been really bored!”
That said, when I received an email from a little mystery named Nikki, I was intrigued.

It has to be phony, right? Maybe Jeremy is a little bored at home. Maybe Greg is pulling our leg in between drum fills in the studio. Or just more “business as usual” for guest contributor Raleigh Chase?
I thought so too, but there are a couple “Why Did I Have The Bowl, Bart?” Milhouse moments in my thought process:
a) “Nikki” saw Dave and I in the Bloor and Jarvis area drinking from McDonald’s cups. We did that. It is a truth.
b) “Nikki” knows that I covered an Alkaline Trio song on the first Christmas Album. I’m almost certain that no one listened to that thing, especially not any of my Fun Time friends.
So, either Nikki is the real deal, or perhaps even more disturbing – the prankster has done an outrageous amount of research.
Naturally, I had to respond:
And that’s where my communication with Nikki ended. No response. No nuttin’. I felt like a bit of a dink for replying at all, and I was sure that one of my pals was yukkin’ it up at my expense.
Then, just when I thought it was all over, I got an email forwarded to me, courtesy of my companion that day, Dave Hodgson:
It’s in that weird no-zone of joke/prank/strange/creepy now. But Dave and I decided that, for the good of the site, we’d try to get as much out of this as possible. So we prodded Nikki for more information:
And that’s where we’re at.
Almost a week later, and there’s no response. No pictures with funny signs. No nuttin’.
Nikki: Please. Shed some light. We’ll look for you in the comments on this article.
And if we don’t hear from her, I think it’s safe to assume…
