I grew up in a family that loved to laugh and play practical jokes. April 1st in our house was a national holiday, at least that is the way we approached it. The entire day was spent on planning and executing a really good practical joke. Most of the time the jokes were simple and easy to pull off with just a little planning. There were some years when the members would team up and try to pull a "big" practical joke over one family member. Those were fun, alright, they were all fun but we never went to the extreme of what you can see every week on Scare Tactics on SyFy. If you have never seen the show, you don't know what you're missing. Scare Tactics has to made of people who grew up playing practical jokes on everyone they ever met! The whole idea of the show is to scare the pants off your friends by playing a very elaborate and well exectuted practical joke complete with Hollywood special effects. I have watched a lot of good practical jokes but this one has to be the best practical joke I have ever seen!
