    Well at least it would be on film and probably justified. I saw another one where there were a couple of friends that picked up a stranded motorist at night and out in the middle of the desert and he attacked the driver with a (fake) knife but the guy in the back didn't think it was so funny. He ended up beating the crap out of the actor and the joke ended there.

    And vice versa

    I know not to sneak into my sons' houses in the middle of the night for the same reasons.

    Kids watch that junk, and kids think like kids.

    We have a responsibility to teach them properly (I respect the OP's immediate and genuine response). Be consistent in your love and desire to protect them, and they may joke with you about all sorts of things, but never your safety.

    Once this is accomplished, whether they realize it or not, they know you will never make light of theirs.

    Good to have a plan with the ones you care most about.

    I used to work for a television production company that did "reality" shows like this. I can assure you, that will NEVER happen. Notice that you never hear about the "targets" of these pranks filing any kind of lawsuit for emotional distress or psychological trauma. That's because all the legal paperwork is filled out--well in advance--by ALL parties involved.

    Some pranks are more choreographed than others, but none of them are a genuine surprise to the person being pranked.

    The real danger here is what it's always been: Giving kids bad ideas. Kids can watch Superman and have no trouble grasping the concept of fantasy. They know they can't fly or stop bullets. But shows like this make the idea look attractive and feasible. So, once again, it falls to parents to watch movies and TV with their kids (although I recommend no TV at all) and talk about what they're watching.

    And if anyone out there have kids that like to play pranks on people, make sure you let them know about a guy named Darwin.

    In 1974 here, a man came into the back door of a house with a gun in his hand and told them to do what he told them. They thought it was a joke, laughed and told him to get serious (per his later testimony) .... as they and their friends often did practical jokes on each other. It wasn't. He had already cut the phone lines.

    He killed all 4 family members there that morning by suffocating them (plastic bags tied around their heads) fortunately 2 or 3 of the kids had already left for school..... and unfortunately were the one's to find their family when they came home from school.

    He was not caught for 25 yrs, and this was his first "known ' killing.... among his several killings after that. He became a serial killer. BTK.


    My son and his friend decided to 'play a joke' on me one night.... acting as if they were trying to break in. As I went outside to check things .... one of them jumped up from behind a short brick wall right next to me and yell. He found a cocked .357 in his face and my finger on the trigger. After that, they "yelled" when they arrived at the house and let me know beforehand they were coming.... I had to laugh, but they wanted to make sure I knew it was them.

    Eagleks, that's exactly what I'm talking about and can you imagine what a bad day that would be? Bet they think twice before they pull that one on anyone else. Glad it was a happy ending.
