I know this is April Fool's Day and so though I would share a story that has been around the internet for awhile, but takes front and center today. I love pranks and practical jokes as much as the next person, but I also think there is a line you don't cross when you are doing so. The joke or prank should not actually make someone invest emotionally, and if something goes wrong, you need to just give up on the prank or lie and not see it through to the end. Whenever I think of a prank gone bad, I always think back to that Jenny Jones situation, and the guy murdering the other guy. You need to know when to back off.
Here is a little background to this current situation. What you have are some nosy ass neighbors almost in their 20's who decided to screw around with a 13 year old girl by inventing a MySpace boyfriend for her. When things started getting weird, instead of letting the girl in on the joke, the hoaxsters instead drove the girl into a frenzy and she ended up killing herself.
One of the hoaxsters was on Good Morning America this morning. Try to ignore that woman named Diane Sawyer who used to be a journalist and is now just vying for Queen Of The Kneepads.
