I don't remember what team it was, but

"Team xxxx is looking for their robot. If anyone has seen their robot, please bring it to team xxxx"

"Labview Download Disk"

Not really funny, more like "Wait...what?"

Um...let's see...

"Hope"
"A finals selection"
"Flux Capacitor"

"(Pit neighbors team number) needs lube!" is always a good one.

This year at NJ:

Team 2495 needs there drive team to report to queuing for a match NOW

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

From us was "team 1306 needs a warp drive", and "Team 1306 would like to know the average flight speed of an unladen swallow" which was followed up with "team xxxx would like to ask team 1306 is it was an african or european swallow" Also, "team 1306 needs Jon Morton in the queue NOW." Not exactly funny considering he's our main driver...

Other ones from the Wisconsin Regional are a wood welder, heartworm pills/a milk bone for a team's watchdog, and a metric, left-handed, flathead screwdriver.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

Our captain reigns us in any time we get the idea to ask for silly things over the PA, but a few of our favourites have been:

"Team 1334 has just lost the game. If anyone finds it, can you please bring it to their pit?"
"Team 1334 is looking for hugs!"
"Team 1334 is looking for an alliance captain." (we'd obviously never say something so unprofessional, this is just when we get nervous about alliance selections)
"Team 1334 would like to invite everyone to a dance party in their pit."
"Team 1334 would like their devil head back...no questions asked."

Oh the fun we could have...
