Fake mizzou web address leads to rival school web

fake mizzou web address prankOfficials in University of Missouri found out a website that uses their trademark nickname "Mizzou" in a web address last week. The website is thought of as a hilarious jokes pranks ideas which leads web visitors to the rival territory. The web address takes unaware users to the official University of Kansas Web site.

Christian Basi, University of Missouri Spokesman, said that they've already asked the individual who owns the site to change or remove the domain name, since it infringes University of Missouri trademark. A spokeswoman at Collegiate Licensing Co. confirmed that a letter has been sent, but could not disclose details since it’s against federal regulation to disclose information about mailboxes.

A search of the domain name leads to an “L. Jeffries” of 501 E. Nifong Blvd., Suite 311, in Columbia, a UPS Store location. It’s against federal regulation to disclose information about mailboxes, so owner John Kadlec could not verify whether the 311 mailbox exists. On forums, some have attempted to track down the site owner. Some have pointed to Owl Software, a Columbia business with a mailbox at the UPS store. Owner Ann Roland said there’s no connection between the site and her company, which writes software for the food industry.

KU just became aware of the fake address and is not responsible for it, spokeswoman Jill Jess said. But the university hasn’t taken steps to ask the owner to remove it. “We can’t control what the greater Jayhawk nation does on the Internet,” Jess said. “Sometimes they can get a bit overzealous.”

Pranksters fight against AT&T for blocking 4chan

Last October 2008, 4chan was traced as the source of a submitted hoax story about Apple's CEO Steve Jobs died on a heart attack to a CNN's user-generated news site iReport which
resulted for Apple Inc. stock price to fell significantly.

Recently, a similar hoax story surfaced on CNN's iReport site alleging that AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson had been "found dead in his multimillion dollar beachfront mansion" after a cocaine overdose. An idea that some thought as the reason behind AT&T's action against 4chan.

Michael Coe, an AT&T spokesman, e-mailed a statement that a denial-of-service attack was the reason for temporary block of 4chan traffic and that it has since been restored. This was to prevent attack from disrupting service for the impacted AT&T customer and the action was in no way related to the content of 4chan. Their focus was to protect their customers from malicious traffic.

Borat's bro Brüno is fully sick

Brüno | funny prank movieSacha Baron Cohen employs this standard-issue of shocking pranks ideas tactic in Brüno his latest in-your-face, prank-based comedy adventure. In the film, his an outrageously gay Austrian fashion celebrity that travels across the US on a quest to find fame after being sacked from his TV show.

As with his previous smash-hit film, Borat, Cohen's real game is to sucker people into elaborate set-ups and outrage them, capturing their reactions on camera. Cohen's comedy is based on cruelty and embarrassment. He has no interest in observing human behaviour or in his victims sharing the joke afterwards. Cohen relies so heavily on deception to get people to sign releases demonstrates that he is untroubled by ethics.

Cohen set up 30 fake companies on the internet to trick people into participating in what they thought was a straight documentary. And while Brüno's stint as a misbehaving extra on the set of Medium is supposedly real, it's too obviously staged. It seems he will even stop to lying to his fans and search hard for his laughs.

The 83 minutes of Borat was culled from an astonishing 400 hours of footage. It's highly likely the 81 minutes of Brüno was distilled from a similar pool of raw video. Such an astronomical shooting ratio suggests that Cohen's laughs are due more to luck than any real skill.

Two days later, as he prepared to celebrate his 25th birthday, Mr Malde jumped from an eighth-floor restaurant near the Bank of England. Colleagues believe he was convinced he would lose his job.

Mr Malde was working long hours at the bank's London headquarters and was often at his desk by 6am. In recent times three of his colleagues had been let go by the bank and Jools seemed very worried he might be the next to leave one friend said.

Police have found no evidence that Mr Malde had downloaded any inappropriate material on his computer or was involved in any criminal behaviour. Yesterday his distraught parents released a statement in which they spoke of their 'devastation' after losing their only child.

Hotel prank call triggers flood

Hotel prank call triggers floodA San Luis Obispo hotel, The Comfort Inn & Suites Lamplighter hotel, suffered more than $20,000 in damage after falling victim to yet another stupid stuff pranks ideas earlier this month that caused it to flood. This adds another one on the growing list to be targeted across the nation by similar prank calls that result in extensive damage.

At 2:00 a.m. on June 5, the night auditor who was managing the desk had received a call from a stranger impersonating a fireman. When the night auditor requested to speak to his supervisors before taking action, the caller insisted he had little time before the flood would occur. Pressured, the employee followed the caller’s instructions to step on a chair and tap the closest fire sprinkler.

15 minutes later, Sunil Patel, a lamplighter general manager and part-owner, received a call about the flooded hotel which is located on upper Monterey Street. Monterey Street was closed and fire trucks were parked outside. The lobby, front desk area and breakfast room were flooded and water was streaming out the front and back doors. The sprinklers activated had soaked the lobby’s computers, fax machines and printers. Approximately 50 guests evacuated when the fire alarm triggered and police arrived.

Four other hotels within the Choice Hotels chain in Southern California received similar prank calls the same day. Since then, hotels in other states have also been targeted. To avoid such vandalism, business people should use caution when dealing with callers. The prank caller may be charged with a misdemeanor for tampering with fire protection or alarm equipment if identified.


Shaker Heights HS yearbook cover contains hidden F-word

Shaker Heights High School yearbook coverShaker Heights High School yearbook cover this year is drawn by an artistically gifted student with a creative interpretation of a crowd of "Red Raider" mascots. But to the surprise of the administrators, they discovered a hidden farewell message containing the F-word in the artwork sprawled across yearbook’s front cover.

A letter was written last week by Principal Michael Griffith to students and their families explaining that distribution of the yearbook had been suspended because "an obscenity was cleverly concealed in the cover artwork." The school needed first to fix the yet-to-be-distributed yearbooks and also offered to fix any books that had already been distributed, though it's hard to imagine anyone would have noticed the offending word without someone pointing it out.

The note also contained an apology from the student artist who said, "I cannot begin to explain the miserable feeling I brought upon myself, when I betrayed the trust of all of you, I apologize for offending anyone and everyone. It is unfortunate that I did not recognize the big responsibility and honor given to me when asked to design the cover of the Shaker Heights yearbook. I offer my sincere apologies.”

The sincere apology worked. At the Shaker graduation ceremony Thursday, the student artist received the loudest, most sustained applause of any fellow student as he accepted his diploma. It seems that yearbooks won’t hear the end of hidden obscenities, sexually-themed shocking pranks this year.


Gig Harbor High School seniors accused of tagging vehicles

Gig Harbor HS senior car prank Since it was the first day of school without the 2009 class, juniors of Gig Harbor HS rolled into school Thursday with self-administered window paint reading “2010” as their graduating year identification. But by the time they got out of class, “2010” had been crossed out with window paint and replaced by “2009” along with vulgar words and symbols.

Students said they saw members of the senior class pulled off car pranks by tagging cars about 11:30 a.m. Seniors were on campus for a brief period for their graduation practice. Though the paint came off with each swipe of a finger or a shirt some juniors called the tagging immature, others just laughed and talked about going to the car wash.

Gage Young, a GHHS junior, found his SUV tagged with vulgar slang and phallic symbols, but he laughed it off. Young said because of his involvement in a similar prank aimed at graduating seniors his vehicle likely was tagged more aggressively. He said this sort of tagging is an annual event between the juniors and seniors.

Although pranks were being taken lightly by Gig Harbor High students, the school’s administration is having a hard time against end-of-the-year antics. Greg Schellenberg, an Outgoing GHHS Principal, expressed frustration over the incident. The school plans to review security cameras in the parking lot and will not rule out individual punishment.


Howie do it TV prank show

Howie does it - prank showThe Canadian funnyman, Howie Mandel is back with a new television show called "Howie Do It", a Candid Camera meets Punk’d kind of T.V. show except that no one is famous and everyone is fooled.

The show also has the same concept like with the late night shows, it has live audience going crazy to the energetic music courtesy of the show’s live band. Mandel takes on a double role on the show. Mainly being the host and secondly being part of the crew where he wears costumes and props gag to prank unsuspecting “victims” where he’s an absolute genius at it.

The funny pranks ideas may be a tad juvenile but the reactions they incite are absolutely classic.

Corona del Mar HS senior prank may lead to suspensions or expulsion

Corona del Mar HS logo | senior prank20 Corona del Mar High School senior class students pulled off an intended hilarious Jokes and funny pranks that caused nearly $8,000 worth of damage and could lead to a number of suspensions or expulsions.

The students dumped bleachers and soccer goals into the swimming pool, spray-painted the school walls and doors with some benign and some profane expressions, glued pennies to locks and covered trees with toilet paper last week according to school administrators.

District spokeswoman Laura Boss said the spray paint had to be cleaned or painted over, some locks were broken, and maintenance workers had to fish the goals and bleachers out of the swimming pool. The district hopes to have the campus back to normal before graduation Thursday noting much of the damage has already been repaired.

The 2009 prank’s reception has not been nearly as warm, especially given the recent cuts and the state’s threatened trims to educational funding. School officials believe they have caught all of the kids involved in this year’s prank, and the incident is being investigated before disciplinary action is taken, according to Boss.
