George: My boys just called me from a freighter headed for China! Was that your doing?
Stan: Uh, well, I, uh...
George: That is the best practical joke ever! It's even better than the time I switched Julia Roberts' fetus with a rat!

"Wait! We just wrapped, and I forgot to play a practical joke that the press can use as feel-good fodder for the junket circuit!"

He and Nicolas Cage were roomates and Cage had a cat that he doted on.

So Clooney would wake up early and clean out the litterbox.  So after a week of this Cage got worried and took the cat to the vet and explained that the cat had not shiat in a week. The vet gave him a kitty laxative.

So the next night in Clooney gets up and takes a dump in the litterbox.

That is a great prank.

This was done in an episode of MASH.

Let me guess; he got Matt to wear a blindfold and put things in his mouth to guess what it was.

I've heard that one too, didn't know it was Nic Cage he did it to.

I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Matt Damon is telling the truth, Clooney is dedicated to his pranks.

I heard one where he told Richard Kind he was taking art classes and kept up the ruse for over a year. He had all their friends in on it and finally gave Richard his first painting as a gift, with all their friends praising how awesome a painting it was. It was actually some crappy painting he found at a garage sale or something, and he actually never took a lesson. Richard thought it sucked, but he felt it would've been rude to not display it, so he displayed this POS painting in his home for awhile so as not to offend his friend.

I saw Richard Kind telling that story in an interview. It was hilarious.

I think it was Brad Pitt who attempted to prank Clooney once, and everyone advised him against it, and Clooney's revenge was merciless.

Point is, Clooney is the master.

What a completely shiat-ass article.... It's got like 3 sentences, alludes to Clooney's Greatest hits and then doesn't even tell us a single other one of his "amazing" pranks. If he has so many others that are great, list at leas ta few, Jesus... If the kitty litter one upthread is true, then this is the type of stuff that fleshes out an article and makes it a GREAT article.

That's a play on the old "My VW never needs gas" prank that I used to hear in the 70s.  It's still hilarious, though.

It was, but it wasn't on Nicholas Cage (as much as America wants it to be), rather  Richard Kind.

Didn't he light a bag of dog poop on DeCaprio's doorstep, ring the doorbell and run?

the greatest ever practical joke was told on CarTalk.   the Prankster found a guy who was obsessed with his gas milage.  P.  then put a half a gallon of gas into Obsesseds tank every day for a month.  Obsessed bragged about his amazing gas milage!  then P.  stopped doing it for a couple of months.  Obsessed starts taking it into the shop to try to find out why!!!  then back to adding gas for a couple of weeks, and stop for a couple of months.

wow.

Paul Newman was also a dedicated prankster. Here's a side-by-side comparison of some of his best vs some of Clooney's best.

I read somewhere that Matt Damon stayed at Clooney's house for a movie shoot that Damon had to lose weight for. Clooney hired a tailor to reduce the waist of Damon's reference pants by a little bit each night.

What a bastard! :-D

I had a foolin' April Fools Day one year and decided to do fools all over the house:  greased the doorknobs, put plastic over the inside of the toilet seats, kool-aid packets in a panty hose over the shower head, etc.  I then went into a friend's room with the cat's litter box and got the feeling I had to go.  I did a poo in the litter box, and it was a big one.  Weeks later, everyone was reminiscing on the good number of fools we all did, and after a few in the discussion, I asked others, "What did yall think about poo in the litter box?"  and they were like "What do you mean?"  It took a second to sink in before they were all like, "You did a poo in there?"  They were kind of disturbed by it.  I maintained my pride in the situation, but in the back of my mind, I was thinking that whoever cleaned it should have been surprised in some way by how big the poo in the box was for such a tiny cat.  It was really big with girth for people size.

I remember reading about the caretaker of some Russian princess back in the 1800s, giving her a baby turtle. Then every week or so, he'd swap it with a slightly larger turtle, so that by a year later, she had a behemoth big enough that she could ride around on it.

Then he started shrinking it back down...

I thought I remember reading that on one of the Ocean's movies Clooney sent a memo to the entire crew saying that no one was to talk to or look at Brad Pitt. If they HAD to talk to him, they were to address him ONLY as "Mr. Pitt" and never, ever look him in the eyes.

From the story I remembered, Pitt spent the first month of the shoot thinking everyone hated him.

Apparently it was the other way around, Pitt pulled the prank on Clooney, he sent a note out written in Italian to only refer to Clooney as "Danny" and not to look him in the eyes.

Clooney responded with the "I'm gay and I vote" and "Small penis on board" bumper stickers on Pitt's car.

This is from an old Jason Robards movie "A Thousand Clowns" (1965). I tried to find a video or a transcript but failed but I remember it distinctly.

Came for this story.  One of my favorite pranks ever.  Because it just kept on giving.  Kind had to have that POS hanging in his house for months.

Not sure fooling a lot of people into thinking you are straight really counts as a prank though.

This should be a good flick.  There was an article about the real guys who did the work in Smithsonian mag, recently.  General Mark Clark is quoted as saying that the war in Italy was like fighting "in a goddam museum."

So you not only recapped the story in the article, your ignorance makes you laugh out out out out out loud? Good grief that's grating.
 
2014-01-17 04:41:29 PM  
Good grief! I am laughing so hard that I am crying.
Seeing as how I am at the public library, and am a slightly seedy
middle aged white dude who is obviously unemployed, I shall
now leave before I greet those nice young men in their clean
white coats.......
