It doesn't get any more

Daniel Radosh

It doesn't get any more serious than a Rhinocerus about to charge your ass. As seen in the Sept. Harper's, the hilarious cybersex pranks of J-Dogg. It always amazes me that people can be so horny that they will persist in trying to maintain their fantasy no matter how bizarre and off-topic their online partner gets. J-Dogg has a terrific sense of how to parody standard cyber scenarios, but for sheer weirdness, no one is better than Amber Forever, a purported 14-year-old girl whose desperate suitors must contend with, among much else, her mad-scientist father and (my favorite) her recurrent short term full aphasic memory disorder.

No, I don't have any more pics of "me."

Walking that fine line between pranking and entrapment, the crew over at Perverted Justice lures pedophiles and then posts their names, addresses, and photos. It's a funny, kinda punk rock idea, done with flair, but the joke is frequently ruined because the pranksters insist on annotating their transcripts with unconvincing asides about how sick the chats make them, like they're being forced to do it.

Know of any good chat room pranks that I missed? Lemme know and I'll add them.
