"Pranklopedia" is the young practical joker's secret weapon, a boisterous collection of over 70 guaranteed-to-amuse (or annoy) pranks to be pulled on friends, siblings, and parents. Discover the Homework Hoax, the Squirting Blister, the Movie Popcorn That Grabs You Back. Pull classic pranks on your siblings, like short-sheeting the bed. Freak out your friends with food pranks: a self-peeling banana, misfortune cookies, or ice cream that will make them scream (here's a hint it involves instant mashed potatoes). And there are perfect pranks to pull on your parents, including a scheme to freeze the family computer. The book includes recipes for fake bird poop, fake dog poop, fake vomit, and fake snot (regular, nosebleed, and wormy varieties). Plus you ll find 40 pages of cutout pranks: fake labels (mmm Cream of Sparrow Soup ), a winning lottery ticket, bogus bathroom signs, and letters from school that will make your parents cringe. A complete prankster's guide, "Pranklopedia" also provides a four-part lesson on how to pull the perfect prank and tells you what to do when pranks go bad: "1. Disappear for a while . . ."
