The Pickle Wizard
promises that if you pay him $5.99, he'll send a slice of pickle to a person of your choosing. He writes:
What could be more satisfying than the confusion of a friend or foe when they receive a pickle in the mail with a mysterious note? The answer you ask? Nothing. So get on it, and send those expecto patronads a damn pickle!
Here on WU, we've previously posted about Feces by Mail
, so the Pickle Wizard is the latest variation on that theme of Mail-a-Prank. The Pickle Wizard claims that, to date, he has mailed 520 pickles.
This seems to me to be a fine Xmas joke easily duplicated today. Pick your victim!

A comedian decided to drive around L.A. talking into his iphone shaped cookies
to prank cops. Here's a thought: if you are going to play a practical joke on the police, who are notoriously unreceptive to humor while on the job, be sure you've paid all your outstanding parking tickets. Pissed cop+outstanding warrant=arrest & fine.

I can see this prank being really popular in the Middle East nowadays. "Gotcha, Ahmed [Isaac]! You really thought the Israelis [al Qaeda] had rigged your car!"
German police in the town of Aachen were tricked by a very talented snow sculptor/prankster. A VW Beetle
made entirely of snow was built in a no parking zone. It was so realistic that it got ticketed, in fact, local police only discovered the prank when they tried to brush off the licence plate and it was solid snow.

I've been reliving my youthful TV watching by streaming episodes of Rocky & Bullwinkle
on Netflix. I certainly catch a lot more of the jokes than I did when I was in elementary school.
And in the screen shot above, you'll see a risque easter egg I encountered in Episode 5.
Anyone else have similar favorite moments from the media?
It is generally understood that the necktie is a symbol of male virility. Thus, when the Marx Brothers or the Three Stooges cut someone's tie off while the fellow is wearing it, it is a symbol of emasculation, and we laugh.
So a necktie that instantly sproings
erect on command is surely the best alpha-dog symbol of all! This is why Dilbert rules!
Just don't poke out anybody's eye with that thing!
Won't everyone just guffaw when your hysterical suicide attempt proves to be a prank! Don't be surprised if some angry relative whips out a real gun and finishes the job.
