No One Suspects Pranks At Bar

This plus a little lime juice is one nasty April Fool's trick.

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bars are THE place to scout out victims on April Fool’s Day (Apr. 1).

Just ask Ed Decker, a San Diego bartender who’s a pro at pulling pranks on unsuspecting drinkers.

Since everyone is boozing and relaxing, no one ever suspects an attack at the bar.

Decker’s go-to trick is a nasty cocktail called the “Cement Mixer.” The victim holds a shot of Bailey’s in their mouth as the prankster pours lime juice on top.

The end result is a sour, “congealed goo” that tastes like a “smutty sponge.”

The trick works because no one ever refuses a free shot.

There’s also the “Screaming Gorilla Fart” – a shot of Bacardi 151 mixed with A1 Steak Sauce.

But Decker’s best work – or worst – is the “Bar Mat Shot” made of the gunk found on a bar’s floor mats.

He once gave that shot to an unruly patron who was so wasted, he didn’t notice the floaties.
