It’s pretty easy to hoax people. We all want to be deceived, but only up to a point. Some hoaxes are fun and pleasant, others malicious and unpleasant. We’d like a way to tell the difference (Robert Carroll).

Practical Jokes

When most people think of practical jokes, they envision pranks that entail elaborate schemes, which are hatched with a certain victim in mind. These types of jokes take some forethought and planning to pull off but can be the most rewarding. Often with practical jokes of this nature, half of the fun comes during the planning stage because you are able to envision and laugh to yourself as you think about how your friends or family are going to react. You also derive pleasure from seeing the victim working their way through the joke. In some cases, the joke may unfold over the course of hours or days, giving you more chances to laugh as the victim struggles to understand what is happening to them.
