Drive-Thru Prank Proves Skeletons Can Still Make Adults Shriek Like Scared Little Kids

The drive-thru lane is no stranger to pranks — from Batman stealing customers’ grub to pranksters hacking into the system to scream obscenities at customers — but this particular brand of joke is pretty darn good. Mostly because it makes grown adults disintegrate into shrieking, terrified little children. [More]

Here Are Some Short Videos Of People Being Morons At Walmart

There are a lot of Walmart stores out there, many of them open all hours of the night, and some of them located in towns where the temptation of late-night buffoonery inside of a Walmart might be the most entertaining thing you can do at 3 a.m. Thankfully, we live in an age where such acts of sheer idiocy can be caught on camera and shared with the world.

Those look really tight, huh?

Either American Eagle Is Playing An Early April Fool’s Joke, Or Spray-On Jeans Are Real

When any clothing item appears to come in a can, one might reasonably assume that a retailer is messing with people. But if American Eagle is punking the public with its “AEO Skinny Skinny Jeans” as seen in a new ad on its site, it’s pretty darn early for April Fool’s Day. [More]

Customer Tries, Fails To Convince Internet That Company Labeled Him A “Huge A-hole”

It’s one thing if a company or one of its employees goes out of their way to insult you, say by mocking your weight or calling you an “ugly itch” from “Ghettohood USA.” But it’s not cool to claim that a company insulted you when it just did exactly what you asked it to do. [More]

What Happens If You Try To Hold A Board Meeting In The Office Chair Department Of Staples?

Have you ever looked at the furniture set up in an office-supply store and asked yourself, “I wonder what would happen if I brought a group of people and tried to hold a business meeting here?” To be honest, neither had we, but that’s why we don’t run Improv Everywhere. The NYC-based group has staged events like the No-Pants Subway Ride and flooding a Best Buy store with ordinary shoppers wearing plain blue polo shirts to see what would happen. For their latest mission, they rounded up 24 middle-aged actors, put them in suits, and held a board meeting right in the furniture section. [More]

Pranking Coworker With Laxative-Laced Soda Not So Hilarious When Customer Buys The Drink

Punishing your fellow employee for being a notorious food stealer by lacing a soda with laxatives is one (awful) thing, but you better make darn sure a customer doesn’t end up with said drink. Unfortunately for one Family Dollar shopper in Kansas City, Mo., the employee-on-employee pranking spilled over into her life when she bought the Coke in question. [More]

Neighbors Resort To Prank-Playing In Attempt To Drive Out Squatter

Last summer, a home in the Palmer Woods section of Detroit became vacant when the homeowner walked away on the mortgage. Not long after, a moving van pulled up and a new neighbor moved himself in.

Chick Fil-A Is Totally Cool With You Stealing Its Topiary Cow

Chick Fil-A Is Totally Cool With You Stealing Its Topiary Cow

This is the time of year when high school seniors around the country celebrate the end to a dozen years of education by pulling pranks. Usually, at least in the 1960s sitcom world in which I live, this results in a lot of grumbled “kids today”s and a spike in the general level of fist-shaking from local business owners. But a Chick Fil-A in Virginia seems intent on breaking that cycle, by embracing the theft of its topiary bovine by local teens. [More]

Alleged Customer Sues Over 2010 Racist Walmart PA Prank

Alleged Customer Sues Over 2010 Racist Walmart PA Prank

Loyal Consumerist readers and retail-watchers may remember the 2010 incident in which a 16-year-old took over the PA system of a New Jersey Walmart and announced, “Attention Walmart customers: all black people must leave the store.” The prankster had done the same thing a few months before, and was charged with harassment and bias intimidation for each incident. Now, more than two years later, someone has filed a lawsuit against the store over the incident. He claims to have been in the store at the time of the prank, and that the incident led to “depression, anxiety, anger, loss of sleep and appetite, paranoia, and antisocial tendencies.” [More]

Royal Wedding Mug Mixup: Idiotic Error Or Savvy Prank

Royal Wedding Mug Mixup: Idiotic Error Or Savvy Prank

This royal wedding souvenir mug from Guandong Enterprises Ltd. could be either of two things. It could be a Chinese company hoping to capitalize on global royal wedding mania and sell a few overpriced, unauthorized souvenir mugs without doing enough research beforehand.

Comedian Who Made Videos Asking For $1 Million And Got It…
Was A Hoax

Comedian Who Made Videos Asking For $1 Million And Got It… Was A Hoax

It sounded too good to be true: comedian Craig Rowin made a series of web videos asking for $1 million, and then he announced he had received it. A rich benefactor named “Benjamin” had seen the videos and was amused by them enough to hand over the cash. The videos went viral, Craig went on TV and international news teams were dispatching crews to cover his amazing story, which he maintained was completely real. Then at the end of the check-handing-over ceremony on Wednesday night, Rowin burned the check on stage and revealed it was all a hoax and the “investment banker millionaire” was an actor he had hired. Sorry, dreams. [More]
