Volcano Selfies and Spider Pranks


I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life, but never Rappel-into-a-Volcano-to-Take-a-Selfie stupid.

George Kourounis, host of a Canadian TV show called “Angry Planet,” got some friends together to descend into the Ambrym Volcano in the tiny South Pacific nation of Vanuatu.

Don’t try this at home (even if your home is in Vanuatu.)

Since we’re talking viral videos and international travel, if you’re ever in Poland, watch out for dogs dressed up as spiders:

What’s the best prank you every pulled?

    Getting Ricochet to think Troy Senik did something involving a giraffe in Las Vegas.

    Could have been worse…he could have lit up a cigarette.

    How did they get that spider to wear the dog mask?

    Huh, apparently Ricochet is not populated by pranksters.

    My father-in-law once had a co-worker nearly convinced that “naugas” are a real thing. “Poor little naugas, giving up their ‘hides’ to make bar stool covers and bench seats for diner booths.”

    That one lives on in family lore. I’m betting half of you will never see another vinyl covered booth seat without thinking, “Poor little naugas.” You’re welcome.

    Western Chauvinist: “Poor little naugas, giving up their ‘hides’ to make bar stool covers and bench seats for diner booths.”

    Yea? I’ve known about naugas for nearly 50 years! And what happened? They hunted them to extinction! When’s the last time you saw a naugahide couch? That’s my point. They killed them all and are now trying to exterminate an entirely new species, the faux. Every couch, bar stool and diner booth – what to you see? – “Faux Leather”
    Effin furnituremakers!…

    Descending into the volcano isn’t a prank, it’s just straight up stupidity.  Did you see him handling a little bit of the molten magma with his bare hands?  Idiocy.  This past June we were in Sicily and took a trip to the top of Mt. Etna.  A week later it erupted.  That’s as close to a live volcano as I want to get.

    Selfie in a volcano?  Some people are too stupid to live, or another Darwin Award nominee.  The dog spider prank was wonderfully creative.

    Poor dog hadn’t a clue why everyone was screaming and running away.
