Practical jokes

I have never understood or appreciated practical jokes (the Aust DJ affair). I have never participated in playing a practical joke on anybody to make that person appear stupid. Practical jokes are of necessity based on the ability of one person to deceive another with the intention of making the deceived person look silly. And that’s what I can’t understand. If you believe a person, if you have no reason to think that the person is a liar – why is it amusing or clever for the joker to convince you of a wrong situation? That’s not clever, the victim is not silly, the perpetrator is simply a liar and not to be believed in the future. And that’s practical joking.
