DickDarlington: // exit fark modeThis poor lady was just living her life, working everyday and suddenly got pushed into a world wide news story by being ridiculed by these radio idiots. Mentally stable or not, that's a lot for anyone to endure. I always thought a joke was funny if BOTH people got a laugh out of it, not just the prankster.// ok, back to my life on fark.
wambu: I can't wait for the conspiracy nuts to generate a story for this one.
Maul555: Lionel Mandrake: lennavan: BigNumber12: DontMakeMeComeBackThere: For all intense and purposesYou're joking, right?Joking? Quite the contrary, his purposes are intense.It's "for all intensive purposes" dumbasses.woah... for all intents and purposes, you are both wrong...
Somacandra: minnesotaboy: Was it Weenie and the Butt?[images4.wikia.nocookie.net image 300x225]No way..they already got canned. Its Dingo and the Baby now.

SlothB77: how do you mistake the voice of an australian morning radio DJ for the queen?
sweatybronson: tl;dr - but has nobody mentioned, directly, that part of what's to blame is a culture that worships human beings and places them on such a high pedestal? Just because of being born? Because I could see f'ing up wrt the royal family being a much, much huger deal than any other type of being pranked situation.Can't this turn into a 'monarchy is dumb and evil' thread?(maybe it already has).
jst3p: gaspode: crashdavis18: oh, i see, you are now the laugh police? just because you find that something is not funny, i am not allowed to laugh.You can laugh at this stuff. The rest of us can think you are a worthless tosspot. Deal?Seriously, if you actually laugh at prank call radio hosts you have a serious failure in your humour-engine because that shiat is weak.Over a decade old and I still laugh every single time.LinkLink

It is the fans and the rabid media, not the Royals, who are at fault here.
solitary: IN WHAT WORLD IS IT OK TO PRANK CALL A HOSPITAL?
if_i_really_have_to: reillan: . It's still the pranksters fault for being douchenozzels to a sweet person,Er, no. They played a prank. She completely failed to do her job I am an ignorant wanker who cannot read worth shiate. If sShe had have been[sic] WAS doing her NURSING job properly they would never have gotten anywhere with the prank but then got pulled away at the last minute to answer the stupid phones, which was outside of her comfort zone/professionally trained expertise. Similarly, if someone like 'if I really have to' happens to be a really awesome telephone earpiece cleaner destined for the next intergalactic human-existence-saving-trip but is pulled away to build a stairway to heaven, most likely that stairway would fall apart, since it is outside of his comfort zone.did not read this yet did not read this yet did not read this yet etc etc etc wash rinse repeat
Jurodan: Except... the law already has something about that. It's called the "you take your victim as you find him rule", otherwise known as the eggshell skull rule. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eggshell_skullIf you trespass and cause someone a heart attack, it's your fault. If you prank someone and they kill themselves? I'm unsure if that'd be enough, but I'd have to see the case.
scottydoesntknow: Dinjiin: Except that this wasn't minor douche-baggery. The prank resulted in world-wide media attention and could have led to her job being terminated.And if she had done what's actually required (you know, screening callers), the call never would've made it back there, confidential information never would've been leaked, and the prank would've failed miserably.
Terrible Old Man: "Don't be a dick." Is it so hard? Humanity is so much failure.
serialsuicidebomber: The good news is...... she's finally off her meds.
onlyadistraction: Oh, also since I'm super drunk and no one will read this, "Jacintha Saldanha" is also an anagram for "Hadj Can Hail Satan"
