There are basically two types of pranks. The first kind is a harmless goof that works for almost anyone, like slipping a whoopie cushion under your coworker’s chair. This kind of prank is boring and barely worth talking about.
The second kind of prank can only be played on someone you know well, so well that you can list all their deepest fears and insecurities. When these pranks work, they cause the unsuspecting victim to question everything they thought they knew about their relationship with you. If you can give your loved ones a full-blown panic attack, you pulled a great prank.
Today we have an example of the latter kind of prank. Twitter user @kelllicopter came up with the idea, which is both beautiful and devastating in its simplicity. (via Bored Panda)
Now we’re talking.
As you can see, the prank went viral as thousands of people tried it. And as you can imagine, the reactions varied. Some guys were shocked. Others just rolled with it. And here are 15 of the best responses.

The other other white meat.
10. Winter Is Coming
This could would go on to have twins, which they named Daenerys and George R. R. Baby.
11. Raising Arizona
He’ll be taking these Huggies and whatever cash you’ve got.
12. There’s more than one way to have a baby.

Who’s daddy’s little deduction? YOU are!
15. Quid Pro Quo
My advice to her: go for it, but insist on a cheese pizza. No toppings. Gotta have leverage in case you want a second kid.
