Guy Tricks Friend Into Thinking Son's Christening Party Is Costume Party


Having children is just another opportunity to prank your friends. It's just too good of an opportunity, right? It's the perfect moment to get them unexpectedly, right when they think you're too old and mature to do it, boom, epic prank. So when Imgur user Surgas was planning his son's christening party, he decided to use it as an opportunity to embarrass his best friend. Three weeks before the event, he casually dropped into conversation that the party was going to be a little different.

"Out of the blue I said: 'by the way the christening party is gonna be different... It will be a costume party!" Surgas wrote. "He just looked at me a bit suspicious... I had an Ipad [sic] in my lap and I started to search for cool costumes. We had some great laughs and talked about going as Rocksteady and Bebop. At this point I was actually sure he had figured out the scam but hey, we had fun... He went home and I did not think more of it."

But long story short... it worked. And it worked flawlessly.
