I guess I'll have to clonk in the morning, at work. (High speed connection.)
I loved, while living in Germany in 1980, before cable there, we had a choice of watching Armed Forces Television or German channels. (Couldn't speak the langauge.) The German version of Candid Camera was hilarious and totally respectful. I hate the stupidity of most pranks.
In one setup, they had a coin operated, self serve, soft ice cream dispenser that was set to deliver about 2 pints of ice cream onto a standard cone. It was amazing how long people would try to catch every little bit rather than take what they'd expected (and could reasonably hold in the cone).
Another setup had a fake radio-controlled airplane enthusiast who would ask someone to take the control and keep his model in the air while he went to the bathroom. The actual pilot, hidden in a nearby bush, would then swoop down on the unsuspecting mark. The funniest reaction belonged to a man in his 20's who was then given the rather expensive remote-control plane.
