Impractical Jokes


In Matsumoto on the weekend there was an army of college students dotted around the city sitting on chairs, looking bored, and clicking little clickers counting pedestrian traffic.

I thought it would be funny to walk back and forth in front of one of them and have them keep clicking me over and over again.

It wasn’t funny.

Sometimes practical jokes shouldn’t be put into practice.


note: stopping just as you are about to pass those clicker people isn’t any funnier.

double note: I guess this idea was an ideological joke only.

Over Reactors

storm clouds on the horizon!


Do you know anyone who seriously overreacts to anonymous practical jokes played on them?

After the joke they usually say something like, “If I find out who did this, I will kill you! I kid you not! I will make the last moments of your life so painful you will beg me to put you out of your misery.


Those people are the best to play jokes on!


note: my boss is one of those people.

double note: “Hey! What’s with that plastic sheet?”
