Pranks: All fun and games until you get sued, fired, and sent to jail!


I love pranks.

Growing up with three younger sisters, pranks were a way of life. Whether we were tying each other's doors together with jump ropes, smearing hair gel on toilet seats, or creating fake wounds to terrify our parents, the one constant in the Watson household was that we were almost always behaving in a manner that was utterly barbaric.

This early education came in handy when I went to high school and college, where little practical jokes were a necessary form of entertainment and a great way to show my buddies that I cared. I still remember the first time I bought a box of Ex-lax. While I never ended up using it to bake a cake, simply the fact that I could do so gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
