Pulling A Prank
Every April Fool’s Day some wise guy pulls a prank that makes you feel like a doofus. This year I want to be that guy. So I travelled all the way up to New York just to try play a joke on a friend, Dan Pashman of the food podcast The Sporkful..
I’ve divided this devious plot into two parts. In this first podcast, I lay the groundwork for the prank with Bob Pinzon, owner of Abracadabra Superstore. Pinzon will serve as both my expert and weapons dealer.
My ruse is that I’m going to prepare Dan a traditional Sachs homecooked meal. In reality, I’ll be giving him a recipe for chili that includes ingredients never before comingled in a saute pan (at least I don’t think they have). Pinzon also helps me augment the prank with a few more gags, a classic whoopee cushion, garlic candy, and something called Liquid Ass. This is the most foul smelling thing I’ve ever sniffed, so I also bought the somewhat less potent “Fart Spray” as well.
Before I let you know how it all turns out, now is the time to let me know what are some of the best pranks you’ve ever pulled on someone, what about the ones people have pulled on you?
Is it better to go for a quick gotcha moment or is it fun to plot the more drawn out soul crushing fake lottery ticket type pranks?
