I've seen some silly stuff, but still one of my favorites is from an early customer that built two gag bots: SeinfeldQuote and KanyeText.

The gist was you feed it a phone number and then every day you would get a Seinfeld or a Kayne quote that might make you laugh. Such a simple concept and built in a few hours.

I support this answer, I guess I should spin back up the website.
It was the longest multistep zap for a while, with 56 steps.

@Christopher_87 you were the one who built these apps? Would love to see them...also would love to see a screenshot of the 56 step zap!

Yep, it was me a few years ago. The site was up until recently and still had a small amount of traffic. I might pull it back online again.

The 58 steps were not very efficient as it was just a continual "send sms, wait, send, wait etc"
Now the way it works is more of a looping function.

I put a video together on how to build it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fveig-ZwaZI
