We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm probably going to be the only one who feels this way and I'm probably going to be called a spoilsport, but I don't find jokes where people get hurt, funny in the slightest. It takes a sick sense of humour to laugh at pranks like these.
While most of these bordered on outright cruelty (the two guys lifting up the bed, throwing the guy into the wall and knocking him out, should have been arrested and thrown in jail for six months), I have to admit that tying the firecrackers to the sleeping guy's leg was just hysterical. The "stealing your truck" scene, with all the mousetraps on the floor, was also pretty funny.
I give it six up-twinkles, or '3 stars' by the old rating system.
I don't think you'd be in jail, missred. I doubt that there's a jury anywhere that would convict you. Or me. They were appallingly cruel things to do. Then again, I'm just a girl, and there's apparently a lot of stuff that girls don't understand.
I'll admit that I didn't watch the whole thing; but, I'm a spoilsport and a GUY; and I didn't find most of what I did watch funny at all. Of course, some of what I didn't find funny the "victim" might very well have and could be doing the same to those who did it to him.
The real issue is you have to know your "victim" and how the joke is going to be received.
Things like this video get bad when some people watch and try to repeat, thinking it is okay. Or they do such nonsense to animals. The bottom line is "know your victim."
