    Prank: A practical joke or mischievous act.
    I think so and some go to really extreme lengths just to pass it off as a "prank"

    Like this would be something stupid.

    I think it has. The other day my brother was telling me about a "prank" he watched on YouTube. It was basically a guy going around his town, shouting racist slurs at people, and of course nobody was happy. Now in my opinion, that's not a prank at all. It's a very twisted idea of a joke. Aren't people who get pranked supposed to laugh or at least find it somewhat amusing after they've been told they were pranked? Some people do some really crazy and stupid **** these days and then just throw in the word prank to justify what they've done.
