Do you get Scare Tactics in Japan? Such a great show. Here's the premise:

Someone offers up a friend to the Sci-Fi channel show as a way to get back at them. They're usually in on the scare. The show then puts together an elaborate prank meant to scare the horny-tail frogs out of sucker. This usually involves a temp job and some murderous, fantasy, horror or science-fiction twist.

For instance, in one episode they have the sucker help a pregnant woman. The woman dies in child birth and then a bloody midget, dressed as the devil, popped out of her and starting running around screaming "praise me."

In another episode, the sucker is working at a cloning clinic only to discover that the doctor there was making human clones. The lesson learned: You can mentally scar someone with a bit of planning and two pairs of twins.

I'm always surprised no one gets punched or killed in these shows.

"I'm always surprised no one gets punched or killed in these shows."

They do but but those ones just don't get aired or they're held as evidence in murder trials...
