“YouTube pranks” is one of my least favorite word combinations in all of the English language lexicon, so I couldn’t tell you why I deigned to watch this one. Roman Atwood is what people here on the Internet are apparently calling an “infamous” “YouTube” “prankster” who pulls “classic” “nasty” “pranks.” Keep reading »
Let’s get one thing straight: I would not permit the bros behind YouTube channel Simple Pickup to motorboat me for any amount of money for any cause. That would be a resounding NO. In the name of breast cancer awareness, however, the guys managed to persuade over 100 women into allowing one of them to squeeze their breasts together, stick his face between them, and, well, motorboat ‘em.
Unlike the rest of the Simple Pickup “pranks,” which range from videos of them harassing strangers at gay-pride parades to tips and advice for “guys like you” to “get laid” (ew), this one is seemingly not only harmless, but well-intentioned: they’ll donate $20 for every woman who lets them get on in there. They made $2,080, but this clip is little more than yet another installment in the growing case of taking Breast Cancer Awareness Month and turning it into a sexualized sham that’s more about letting weird dudes grab your tits than cancer prevention, and there’s no glory in that. In fact, some of Simple Pickup’s tougher online critics call for the group to be called out by law enforcement for sexual (and otherwise) harassment. No way, man, they’re just trying to help “guys like you” to “get laid,” right?! It’s totally honorable! [The Daily Dot]
Mahat the Magician Prankster is Internet famous (to the tune of about 2.4 million YouTube followers) for his seemingly endless stream of prank videos. Some of his very best are part of the Drive Thru Magic Prank Series, which documents Rahat, or in some cases no Rahat (we’ll get to that later), playin’ tricks on fast food drive-through employees. The reactions, while certainly a heart attack liability, are almost always excellent. Just in time for the Halloween season to begin, Rahat cast a moving, driving skeleton in his latest video … [via Gawker]
Clicking through a Playboy article all about asking consent before sex, all I could think was, Who are you and what have you done with Playboy???
Hugh Hefner and feminists are uneasy bedfellows — pun definitely intended — even in the most liberal fields of Sex Positive-landia. But there was not much to gripe about over Playboy‘s 2013 Top Ten Party School Commandments, which extolled asking for consent as the #1 way to have a good time at the party. I had to wonder if they were hacked by techno-feminist pranksters.

It’s prank season and a student at Highland Park High School in the suburbs of Chicago pulled off a doozy. Last month, a kid allegedly poured hot sauce into the marinara sauce in the school’s cafeteria. Sounds standard enough, but this particularly brilliant specimen happened to use hot sauce so hot that it sent three staff members to the hospital after inhaling the potent fumes. According to the school’s representative, students and staff that had eaten the marinara or inhaled the fumes from the sauce reported symptoms including “coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and skin rashes.” Keep reading »
We agree that Victoria Beckhamdone good with her hubby David. Yesterday, he appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and played a prank on a massage therapist. He didn’t do such a hot job of repeating back the words as Ellen said them, but it still had me cracking up. Keep reading »
Middle school totally blows for everyone. It’s a rule. It’s, like, written in the Bible or something. But I’d bet it blows a hell of a lot more when you’re a 6th grader who gets groped by her classmate and both your school administrators and the media act like it’s just a “schoolboy prank.”
That’s what has happened to an 11-year-old girl at Castaic Middle School, in Castaic, California: The girl said she was leaning over her locker when a boy came up behind her and grabbed her breasts. The kids at her middle school call that behavior “scooping.” After it took two days for the school to inform him about the incident and administrators failed to explain the boy’s punishment, the 6th grade girl’s father, Chris Dawson, went to TV station KTLA with the story. KTLA reported the incident and came up with this genius headline: “Scooping: Sexual Assault or Schoolboy Prank?”
Because there is such a thin line between inappropriately touching someone and a funny “prank,” right? Keep reading »
