good point: I'd say it's just that the trading floors are much smaller, far fewer people. So statistically the chances of getting something funny out of them are much smaller

A little old school but just before Christmas:
Me: "Watch out he really has a drink problem"
Sales: [ring ring] "Hi Bob [blah blah] so I hear you like a drink! Cutting down?! Don't be silly I'll dig your grave before that!"
Me: mouthing WTF?!
Sales: "Clam down!? You have problems?! The only problem is you can't keep up with me... etc. [blah blah blah blah]"
After 5-6 minutes
Me: "When I said he had a drink problem...he really has a drink problem....."
Sales: "Oh. Shit."

Not exactly heard... but I found a Bloomberg headline funny:

"VIETNAM MAY REQUIRE DOMESTIC GAMBLERS TO USE DONG IN CASINOS"

Dilbert: Why does it seem as though I am the only honest guy on earth? Dogbert: Your type tends not to reproduce.

The things people do for "testing purposes"
Head against Wall

From the polite support's email:
> Please note random number in volatility surface is not good even for testing purpose.
>It can only cause failure in the model calibration.
