How to use prank in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    Most people have such a selfish mind that they can't even find the kind heart enshrined in own soul, so obviously often take ‘COMPLAINT’ made against them by others in prank as own ‘COMPLIMENT ‘only.

  2. Andrew Hammond:

    As a black student who has witnessed racist incidents first-hand around Manhattan this hurts the credibility of students who actually want to step out and say something about it, i ’m not sure what type of human being does this kind of thing as a prank.

  3. Kyle Plush:

    Kyle Plush parents do it how Kyle Plush parents did it in the old days, write it down on an index card and the card is handed to someone somehow sending the person dispatching on that channel, he said. Plush suffocated after he became trapped under the third-row seat that flipped and pinned him while he was trying to reach his tennis equipment. The teenager told 911 operators where he was located, but authorities were not able to find him. A deputy sent to the scene soon after called in to report that he could n’t find anyone trapped in a van, and questioned if the call had been a prank. 911 DISPATCHER WHO ANSWERED CALL FROM BOY CRUSHED BY MINIVAN SEAT COMPLAINED ABOUT JOB DAYS BEFORE INCIDENT Police said Amber Smith, the 911 operator who answered Plush’s second call, failed to relay information to the additional officers who were at the scene. During the call, Plush explained to Smith the call was not a joke. I am trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the parking lot of the Seven Hills... Send officers immediately, Plush pleaded. I ’m almost dead.

  4. Darnell Hicks:

    I didnt think nothing of it [at first], i thought they were just playing games with me, like a prank.

  5. Wan Shaharuddin:

    If it was a prank, why did you smear not only on his face or on his eyelids, but also in the eye itself?
