Scott Ableman says the folks at InPhonic get along great and love playing practical jokes on each other. He says one of his co-workers is "fanatical about his car," going so far as to park it in the "most remote corner of the garage." So, naturally, Scott and his office buddies just had to stick 14,000 Post-It-Notes on the XJ S-Type.

Take note, if you want to pull off a sticky job like this yourself, get several friends to help, raid the office supply room, and plan for it to take a couple of hours.

Scott says the owner of the car took the joke very well and was even able to drive home with most of the blocks on the car for his kids to see. And all you Jaguar fans shouldn't worry. Scott says no cats were harmed in the making of this practical joke.

I wonder, though, if in the ever-escalating InPhonic practical joke war, the Jag owner will come back next week and Wite-Out Scott's Porsche. Or color a co-worker's white Eos with pink highlighters. Scott, keep us updated. We definitely want to know what happens next in the InPhonic garage. Anyone there drive an Enzo, by any chance?

Many more photos after the jump, and even more at Scott's Flickr page.

Thanks to faithful reader, Spluch for the tip!

      I'm not even nice enough to call that a Jag. It's just an over price Ford Taurus

      Looks more like 1400 than 14,000 to me.

      ok, ok, ok, ok...so it's the S type or XJ or whatever the hell....it's a Jag and the article is about the Post-it notes and isn't that clever! It was, it is, and I'll bet the owner was shocked at first! Very cool!

      Good thinking, Danny. Maybe we should cover our plates up on the street, too, huh?

      I guess the guys @ InPhonic can afford to drive Jags and spend company time playing practical jokes when they doop people out of their money promising rebates that never come through! Kudos, I suppose, great company tactics!

      Gosh people, lighten up! It's a very creative practical joke. I do hope the adhesive doesn't damage the paint, of course.. but take it in the spirit it was intended.... This society so caught up on "politically correct", it's nice to see a little levity.... And apparently the man whose car was covered up liked it enough to drive it home to show his children...which I am sure put a smile on their faces as well.... Smiling, instead of complaining.. now there's a concept !

      Thats Great to see people who can work together have fun..
      Some large corporations charge their employees $5 to where jeans on Friday and the money is donated to charity so I see nothing wrong with that. Also I am confused why it would be a big deal to show your lisence plate on the internet.Cant anyone see that when you drive passes them. Just a thought.

      Too funny. A little levity at work never hurt anyone. Kudos to the car owner who had the sense of humor.

      cant tell the difference between an XJ ans an S-type.

      PATHETIC!!! that truly is ridiculous. pretty obvious that this site is run by "bloggers" not car people.
