Wow! I was shocked at how many pussies are on this site.

It's funny when it happens to someone else but I'm not going near the jackass guys.

I like when the joke backfires on the joker, for example: joker jumps out of trash can to scare subject, subject reflexively punches joker in face, joker falls back into trash can.

I am a frequent victim of painful jokes. They are funny.

Depends... If it is minor pain to moderate yes but extreme: no

Just because most of you are trying to sound moral doesn't change the question. It's "is it funny or not" not "would you do a painful practical joke?" so yes they are funny.

HAHA! well its only funny if it doesnt happen to me :p

Funny if the prank is pulled on someone else. Not funny if I'm the one getting pranked.

Mild pain with no last consequences? Of course it's funny.

There's nothing funny about pain

Does this mean like one of those handshake shockers or sneaking a dab of hot pepper into someone's food? If so then yes. Anything more than painful for a few moments then no.

Almost always funny, as long as it's just pain and not permanent damage. It might be funny then too, but you're not supposed to laugh. Hard not to though.

It depends on the subject, who is involved, what is said.

Schadenfreude is something I rather feel when somebody gets injured because of his own stupidity or carelessness - a Darwin award honorable mention.

No - I hated the electroshock trick lighter I once fell for.

I bet most of you laugh your asses when watching jackass.

I have a feeling more than 35% of us would laugh at some practical jokes where the recipient of the prank is in some sort of pain.


07/31/12 3:28 pm

@fakesound haha yeah. Its funny as long as it the practical joke doesn't end in an injury or death.

65% of people get pranked on a regular basis.

Though, I do feel bad for some of them. And the boyfriends that do stuff like that to their girlfriends can expect to be single quite soon afterwards

Funny only when it happens to someone else

They're funny but I'd still prefer you do them on someone else.

Americans have become so weak... What's wrong with a little pain for a great joke? If your my friend you cab expect me to inflict a little pain so the rest of us have a laugh and I expect the pay back.

I said no, but then I remembered the guy who used to snatch the receiver off his desktop phone and the day when superglued the handset to the phone. He smashed his face with it, hard. Could not stop laughing for a very long time.

I think it's funny to see someone get a tiny electric shock or get hit on the head with something that's not heavy or sharp.
I prefer the "hide in the closet and come out screaming, scare the hell outta somebody" pranks.

I prefer the ones that cause eternal emotional suffering

Nowhere near as funny as practical jokes that cause injury.

I saw a guy get whacked by a giant dildo once. That was funny and disturbing!
