    Impractical Jokers

    Anybody ever watch the tv show "Impractical Jokers?" It's four guys who go around and play the most absurd pranks on people, and earn points doing it. In one scenario, they're in a restaurant and just walk up to random people and eat off their plates. In another, they creep up behind someone and put their nose on their shoulder or in their hair and see how long they can do it until they're noticed. Sometimes they pretend to be personal trainers, clerks and whatnot. They don't do anything dangerous that would cause fear like Scare Tactics.

    I'm usually holding my sides because it's so hysterically funny, but you really can't help but notice how oblivious people are with their poor situational awareness. Half the time I"m thinking, if one of those guys did ______ to me, I'd _______. If some dude stuck his nose on my shoulder, he'd get my elbow in his face.

    We watch that every now and then, but only for a few minutes because I can only take it in small doses.
    It does point out how unaware people are in their every day activities. I wish they would get a good old fashioned beat down sometime when they invade someone's personal space a little too much. .

    Generally speaking, I hate people who play practical jokes. I don't think it's funny to set someone up so that others can laugh at them. It might seem humorous, but in reality, it's mean.

    I like the show too , but it would add a little more fun if them guys did get a beat down like every other episode. I like the funny video shows a little more when the guys take the hits to the lower areas Now thats funny .

    You have to remember that they, like criminals, probably pass up dozens of would be victims before they find the right mark. Someone with good SA would not get pranked.

    I have a good friend who owns a restaurant and often while I'm eating he will walk through and snatch something off my plate and eat it.. the look of other peoples faces is priceless.

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

    I generally dislike prank shows but I like this one because its usually the prankers that are in the uncomfortable situation and getting laughed at rather than the stranger. They knowingly put themselves in an awkward position so it doesn't seem as bad. Thats how I see it anyways

    Thumbs up

    Well I wasn't gonna give it a look...but..well, after JL's commentary I thought what the hey, why not?

    That was the first new TV show I've seen in quite a few months. About the only time I wasn't laughing was while waiting for the video to load. Those 4 guys are pretty freaking hilarious.

    Didn't you sort of do that when you got all of us to look at Geraldo in the nude?

    Hey...I just realized that "Geraldo in the Nude" would be a great name for an experimental rock band.

    No, that was not a prank. That was news. And he was not nude...he was wearing a kleenex or something.


    "Geraldo in the Nude". Awesome band name.

    I'm with you, Betty. This has got to be one of the funniest shows I've seen.

    Did you see the one where they tried to get people to dance in the park? One guy told them "Get the f... away from me." It was too funny.

    They are lucky they have not gotten shot.
