Judge_donald_thompson The Cup Prank. What $40 in cups, a lot of free time, and motivation for a prank get you. 2040 cups were purchased, but about 100 went unused due to some scares and some rushing at the end.
All the cups are filled with varying amounts of water, making cleanup extra annoying.
Cups were stacked atop doors and other high to reach places. Etc. (From Idiot World)

The Firecracker Prank

What is the heaviest object that would fit inside a standard letter-sized envelope? I need to find the heaviest object or material I can put into an envelope. It needs to be heavy, flat and cheap. It should also be easily obtainable. The atomic weight of Abevigodium might be 98379, but if I can't find it at Home Depot it's not going to help. I want the end result to be an envelope so heavy God himself would need to stop and catch his breath on the way to the post office

Bono_on_rooftop “Back in January, U2 announced the dates of their “Vertigo” world tour. I contemplated trying to purchase tickets for the gig at Madison Square Garden. I was a big U2 fan growing up, and MSG is right across the street from my apartment. I ultimately decided it wasn’t worth the steep ticket price. As I was thinking about the show, a few things occurred to me:

- U2 is playing right across the street from where I live.
- I have rooftop access at my four-story apartment building.
- U2 is famous for playing on rooftops.

It seemed obvious that “U2” would have to play an unannounced gig on my rooftop an hour before the doors opened at the Garden…”

Unlike the previously-blogged Ted Koppel Blackout Goof, which was only a hilarious prank, the Yes Men’s interview on BBC World Television had serious political motivations. On November 29, 2004, the group’s spokesman announced on the air that Dow Chemical will accept full responsibility for the Bhopal disaster, and has a $12 billion dollar plan to compensate the victims and remediate the site. Also, to provide a sense of closure to the victims, Dow will push for the extradition of Warren Anderson, former Union Carbide CEO, to India, which he fled following his arrest 20 years ago on multiple homicide charges. Well, none of it was true.You can Watch the broadcast and read about the preparation for the hoax.
