Did you get pranked today? Or see anybody else get pranked? (I'm sure that none of us would pull an April Fool's joke on anybody!...but just in case, did you trick anybody?)
So far so good here. I got a few prank-type emails is all. The cutest one was from a grocery chain saying that they now have fresher eggs accompanied by a photo of the store egg section with some chickens in it; and express lane with a car in the store. What did we do before PhotoShop?!
What would you consider too mean for a joke? A few years ago I saw one that I thought was too mean. It was on a local tv station's morning show, there were 2 anchors with a female who generally acted kind of ditzy. The male told her that there was a new app for the iPad that allowed you to taste something through the screen, and he showed her a picture of some food. She was skeptical but he kept insisting it was real and he got her to lick the screen. The male anchor, weatherman, and behind the scene crew all started laughing hysterically and she was so humiliated that she ran off the set in tears. Then they gave her a hard time for running off. It went viral on YouTube so the poor woman had to endure being the butt of jokes for days. IMO public humiliation is waaay below the belt and it definitely gave me a negative impression of the male anchor. If I had fallen for such a trick I'm not sure that I would be able to sit there and laugh at myself either....not with a lot of other people watching anyway.
