All I can say to the numerous people writing these blogs and articles is...
A practical joke (also know as a prank or shenanigan) is a mischievous trick or joke played on someone, typically causing the victim to experience embarrassment, perplexity, confusion or discomfort. Practical Jokes differ from hoaxes or confidence tricks in that the victim find out, or is let in on the joke, rather than being fooled into handing over money or other valuables.
Unless you handed over your life savings to the burnt twerker, quit yer crying.
