Pranksters Share the Hilariously Devious Ways That They Subtly Mess With People's Minds

There's nothing like a little good-natured and good-humored pranking. The fine art of subtlety f*cking with someone in ways they don't even immediately realize is a truly fantastic skill. 

These days 'pranking' and 'trolling' are often too crass and violent, without any regard for the subtlety that makes the payoff great. Some Youtubers need to learn that assault is not a 'prank'.

These hilarious trolls are doing it right and messing with the minds of those around them in the best possible way.

We’re off to a great start.

The first, only, and by default, best public prank of 2017 is here. Around 3:30 am on New Year’s day, someone snuck up to the Hollywood sign, threw several carefully cut tarps over the two Os so that they would look like Es, and disappeared, like a ninja in a cloud of smoke. The sign read “Hollyweed" until 12:30pm, when Stacy Isroelit, a spokeswoman for the Hollywood Sign Trust said that the tarps would be taken down.

The New York Times reported that the prank may be referencing new legislation for legalized recreational marijuana use, but Isroelit said, “It looks more like a New Year’s Eve prank.”

The suspect is still at large. Who knows if they’ll attack other American icons, like putting a joint in Teddy Roosevelt's mouth on Mount Rushmore or making the Statue of Liberty’s torch look like a bong. You know, other weed stuff.

Celebrities and cartoon characters are attempting to distance themselves form the crime.

Whoever did it, thank you for getting this year off on the right foot.
