An episode of Heroes has an interesting example when Hiro attempts to prevent the suicide of a co-worker incited by a Humiliation Conga started by, you guessed it, drunkenly photocopying his butt during an office party. We never see Hiro actually prevent it, however, since history refuses to change and the co-worker somehow finds ways to embarrass himself by doing the same thing at a different time (Hiro's friend Ando even refers to the poor sap as "The guy with the famous butt.") After about 47 failed attempts, Hiro just gives in and manages to talk the guy out of it.

Butt-Head: Huh huh. I'm enlarging my butt.
An entire episode revolved around this. While trying to copy his butt, Beavis ends up falling through the glass. Soon the fire department is called in to get him out with a local news crew covering the story. They're worried that his femoral artery may be cut, meaning he could bleed out if they get him out. Butt-head tries to activate the machine (wanting to see his "female artery") which makes him pop out. Later, with the machine fixed and Beavis' butt stitched up, he wonders what his stitches look like. Butt-head suggests that he use the copier and he does—and of course, falls through again.

There is actually a sign in many high school copy rooms specifically telling students not to photocopy their butts. The hilarious part is that the reason they give is because it wastes toner.
For the ultimate office prank, make enough copies that you can tape them end to end (so to speak) in a chain that you can then feed into a fax machine, closing the loop as it feeds: enter the fax number for someone you don't like, and you've just sent them an infinite series of butts. Or at least, wasted all their toner. You'll need about half-a-dozen copies to pull this off successfully without complications.
