This prank started going in one direction and ended up in a totally new dimension. I was originally going to pretend to be some kind of idiotic avant-garde art student, but it took a completely different turn. Luckily I had another pre-planned prank idea to fill in for the detour this one took.

Oh yeah, the victim of this prank is one of the most productive and intelligent members of our online society, an ICQ spammer who forwards lame messages and asks that you do the same. Do these people really deserve to live?

    SkyMall Product Review: Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar

    Works great on my child, who hasn't barked at all for as long as she's worn the apparatus. When she turns three, we will remove it for a trial period.
