Can Someone Please Explain To Me Why Pretending To Throw Your Kid Off A Balcony Is Funny?

Let me preface this by saying I have a dark sense of humor. I find horribly grim shit that would make most people cringe laughable. That said, I can't find a damn reason why viral prankster Roman Atwood's latest stunt is remotely funny. This dude pretends to "accidentally" toss his kid over…

Frisky Rant: What’s So Funny About Forcing A Woman To Kiss You?

A bunch of obviously misogynistic "pranks" have been circling my Facebook newsfeed for a few days now and it is just pissing me off. In one particular video, that really can’t be labelled as a prank because there is absolutely nothing funny about it, a young man walks up to a random woman, asks a…

Did You Have A Senior Prank? (Hopefully One Less Illegal Than The Prank In Teaneck)

By now you've heard about the 63 students who were arrested at Teaneck High School in New Jersey for a senior prank that veered off-course into straight-up vandalism.

Watch This: Coffee Shop “Carrie” Is The Scariest Prank I’ve Ever Seen

Even though this video is very clearly a prank video to promote the "Carrie" remake, and even though the first 30 seconds shows you exactly how the prank was set up, I still found myself covering my eyes and pausing it multiple times to collect myself. It's THAT scary. I'm guessing the makers of thi…

Man Dresses Up As Chair, People Sit On Him, Hilarity Ensues

Watch This: Proof Your Morning Wasn’t That Bad

Monday mornings are always rough, but this supercut of wake-up pranks will convince you, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your morning was actually quite pleasant. Some of them are funny, some of them are really mean (Firecrackers in the bed?! Wasabi in the mouth?!), but all of them are much, much worse than a…

Admittedly, Setting Up A Co-Worker With A Mail-Order Bride Is A Pretty Baller Prank

This a-hole took screwing around at work to a whole new level: Stephen Pottinger, an employee of the Houston Independent School District, is in trubs for signing up his co-worker for a mail order bride website.

Mel Gibson’s On-Set Pranks Thrived On Humiliating His Female Co-Stars

With the high concentration of d-bags in Hollywood, few would have suspected Mel Gibson would be to whom we attribute the quote "You should just smile and blow me because I deserve it!"

Michael Lohan, The Latest To Be WikiPranked

I have an inner 5-year-old. And this inner 5-year-old totally thinks it's funny when people prank Wikipedia. Take for example, one jokester who amended Michael Lohan's Wikipedia page on Monday. After the whole bringing-cops-to-Lindsay's-apartment kerfuffle last week, Lindsay had Tweeted, "My dad is crazy!!" And so in lieu of adding actual info about…

How does New Jersey guy Jesse Wellens keep his love alive with his lady? He torments her with some good ol’ fashioned pranks. And how does she show her appreciation for said pranks? She gets him back … good … with some special brownies. When I stumbled across their videos, I seriously peed my pants.
