Prank It Forward

Here on the Left Coast, April 1st is over and it has been a blissfully prank free day.

Don't get me wrong. The Blog loves a good prank.

And that is the problem.

Most April Fools Day pranks just aren't good.

They tend to be pedestrian and lame, or sometimes, just plain mean.

The PC says, when it comes to pranking, go big or go home.

The more elaborate, the better.

Take this amazing stunt that was staged last summer to promote the remake of "Carrie."

Now that is a prank!

But tonight, how about something different.

A series of videos is going viral. A bunch of YouTube™ pranksters have started a series called, "Prank It Forward," in which they stage elaborate pranks that do good for people.

Here are just two examples...

Watch as a food kitchen for the homeless is transformed into a five star restaurant.

And here, a waitress, (and remember, the minimum wage for "tipped" workers is $2.13 an hour, and has been for over a decade,) has the best shift of her life.

While you are wiping your eyes, let me lay a sobering observation, followed by a question...

At the time of this writing, the food kitchen video had 13,410 "likes" on YouTube™.

The waitress vid had 32,006 "likes."


These same videos had 106  and 371 "dislikes," respectively.

Which makes The PC wonder...

Who are these 477 heartless jack wagons?

And who do think they will be voting for in November?
