What's the problem?
12 July 2003 | by crash21See all my reviews

The people complaining about this need to get a sense of humor. Friends playing jokes on each other with the help of a TV show, what's the big deal? I think quite a few of these are really funny.

It's not like they're dangerous or anything. Oh my, there's a bigfoot attacking the car... I think I'll shoot it! Right...

And most of these pranks don't even have a possibility like that. Where's the possibility of getting injured when a little girl pretends to be psychic?

It's not like they can't choose to be shown on tv after they know what has happened. People: Laugh it off, and get a sense of humor!
