As we’ve seen recently , pranks can backfire badly. Or if you’re slick enough, you can pull them off. That was the case of a “prank” I witnessed in college.

It was really more of pranked revenge. A classmate I’d gotten close to over the semester ended up cheating on his girlfriend. How she found out I never knew. But she found out — and didn’t tell him. Somehow she convinced him to let her take his vehicle to get it detailed. He never saw his car again, as she ended up taking it to a chop shop. Criminal activity for sure.

We asked readers what pranks they knew of or fell for. These were the answers.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day, our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best 10 responses from the previous Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It’s by you and for you, Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
