I am NOT a fan of haunted houses...never have been. I think my loathing began when I was traumatized at an early age at a haunted house at the Children's Museum in Indianapolis. Regardless...I just don't see the point in paying good money to walk through a dark building, just waiting for someone to scare the piss out of me. Obviously there are a LOT of people who do not share my view on haunted houses. Just walk around downtown on a Friday or Saturday evening and you'll see hundreds of people lining up to go through the various spook houses.

Having said all that, I don't think a good scare prank like this one would bother me too much. I'm sure it would startle me, but I wouldn't get pissed off. Ya' see this prank fits my own personal criteria for a "good" prank. There is no physical contact and no one gets hurt, and they are not scaring little kids. It's rather fun and harmless...which is perfect for a big weenie like me.
