- My Take On Pranks
I was involved in a prank once in my entire life, and that was along with a couple of my family members. Overall, I think pranks are not a good thing. Most are by people or a person seeking revenge on someone who may have inadvertently wronged them.
I believe it is childish, unnecessary, and actually many are illegal. What some think it funny may actually be hurtful or even physically or emotionally harmful, and could actually blow up in the perpetrator's face. If they get caught, they could be charged with vandalism or criminal mischief. Some pranks could even cause bodily injury to someone, as well. The perpetrator could even be made to pay restitution to the vicim for damages, be they to property or to someone's person.
BTW, when I was involved in that one prank, it was to get back at a really evil neighbor for calling a very nice, moral and decent neighbor a whore, and prostitute. This victim was so upset that she actually became physically ill due to the perpetrator's actions. He also attempted to poison her cats, though we were never able to prove it was him. No, she did not allow her cats to run loose. When she allowed her cats outside, she was with them at all times. So, his attempt to kill her cats failed, as he had left dishes of poisoned cat food in her driveway, which was outside her gate where her cats never went. However other neighbor's also had cats that did run loose, but I never heard anything about them being injured or killed by poisoning. He was such a mean man, it was unbelievable. The entire neighborhood was relieved when he finally died.
