I don't like practical jokes and am not sure why they are called that. I've never thought it was funny to intentionally embarrass people or make them look like fools. I put up with them from people who pulled them on me and laughed or shrugged or whatever it took to move on because when pranksters know they can get to you, they are encouraged to do more. The few times I tried to reciprocate and pull a prank, it sort of fell flat since I don't have the attention span to orchestrate anything strategic or complex. Besides, that's not how I want to spend my time. Pranks and put-down "humor" both seem mean-spirited to me. What motivates them? Do you think it's funny?
The nurse committed suicide who was the object of that prank played by the Australian radio show DJ's. The head of the station approved airing the piece. Something should be done to punish them. I don't know what, but something. Maybe they should all be fired. I don't know. What do you think?
And, no, I never watched it.
