Overview


This authoritative guide to those annoying and embarrassing tricks everyone grows up with (and maybe never outgrow) provides "sage" advice for the young and the young at heart. Arranged in encyclopedic format, each of the more than 50 entries includes a formal definition of the prank, followed by tips for execution and countermeasures. Illustrations document the best technique for affixing a "kick me" sign to someone's back, or how to wriggle out of a noogie-giver's clutches. A ranking system places each act on a scale of 1 to 10 for its degree of pain, embarrassment, annoyance, and degree of difficulty. Other fun and irritating tricks include the Burp ’n' Blow, the Rat Tail, the Eskimo Hook, and the Marker ’Stache.

I picked this up on a friend's recommendation - he had heard about on Mancow's radio show. There was some stuff in here I'd never heard of - the Eskimo Hook, the Urinal Greeting, Lift Lies. I think it's really, really funny. Already bought another copy for my younger brother (he's in college now).

Atomic Wedgies, Wet Willies, and Other Acts of Roguery is so long overdue that it is amazing no one ever thought of it before. The notion of an encyclopedia of pranks is a great one, and this book fulfills the premise's promise. From the scientific rating scales (is a Flat Foot more embarrassing than a Pants Yank?) to the textbook definitions (complete with pronounciation guides) this book has it all. The best part, aside from the perfectly deadpan illustrations, is that the book takes no sides. Both the Burp'N'Blow perpetrator and the victim will find this a useful reference guide, as it comes complete with tips for execution and possible countermeasures. Sure to be a textbook for generations to come.
