    Rant on.
    This kind of crap pisses me off more and more. I don't see anything humorous about someone's discomfort. Lucky no one was punched in the face.
    Rant off.
    Either you like bacon or you are wrong.

    Humorous. Stupid. But humorous. Probably staged all the way, though.

    I can feel their frustration. Sure glad they had a good sense of humor.

    On youtube there is a video taken in Russia of a guy who hid inside a post box and was pushing out again the letters that people put in, well... a not so good hearted man, when he realised that there was someone inside the post box just pulled out a gun and shot him dead. Sad ending for a bad joke and TV program.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Not everyone has a sense of humor (or in my case what is considered a normal one), but I bet the contractor got the last laugh with the bill.

    Not staged, but just a segment from a foreign TV show similar to Candid Camera, where they play a variety of pranks on people, then reveal themselves and the cameras at the end.
