Mischief Maker Gives Cool Tips To Pranksters

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One master of mischief in Portland, Oregon, has cool tips on the art of being a prepared prankster.

Teacher-turned-author Bart King has just penned The Pocket Guide To Mischief (Gibbs Smith), a mini book that contains info on everything aspiring mischief makers need to know to pull the perfect prank.

King – a jokester who grew up in a family of nine kids – says the keys to executing an effective prank are preparation, organization, and strategy.

He cites something called the “Frozen Flash Mob” as a cool trick that can be carried out by a coordinated group of pranksters with synchronized watches.

The mischief “mob” meets in a public area, and at an agreed upon time, they freeze into place for five minutes, prompting confusion, stares, and laughter from unsuspecting onlookers.

King explains, “You can have a couple kissing, a guy playing guitar, and another person who’s pointing at something just stop and freeze. It’s a non-pandemonium prank that gets good laughs.”

Another good group gag is to use instant mashed potato mix to spell out names and designs on a friend’s lawn. The morning dew enlarges the mix, making the potato prank hard to miss.
