Funny things to do at the gym

Yesterday at the, I noticed how serious some people can be about their workout. I like to workout and take it seriously, but, man do some people take it to another level. It's hilarious to me to hear some big man grunt and hollor as he lifts heavy weight. I started thinking about things that I could do to maybe lighten the mood in the gym. Here are just a few.
1) Use a beer bottle for you water bottle.
2) Wear some kind of head protection.
3) Pick up the lightest dumbells and grunt like they weight 100lbs.
4) Pay attention on this one; it has several steps. First load the bench with an
incredible amount of weight. Stretch thoroughly. Get a swig of water. Lay down on
the bench. Take deep breaths. Then your watch alarm goes off that you've
previously set, and you unload the bar and move to the next exercise.
5) Bring a partner who will control your actions using a remote.
6) Count your reps starting from some weird number like 330.
7) Bring a huge suitcase to the gym instead of a gym bag.
8) Instead of workout gloves, us the plastic, one-size-fits-all gloves
9) Do one and only rep at every machine. Pretend to be very busy and serious.
Now, I don't know about you, but I think some of those are funny. I probably will not have the nerve to try all of them, but I will try a couple of them.

That's hilarious.

I can imagine the looks you'd get if you did all of those things over the course of one week.

You'd probably end up banned for life!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
