The NFL has the reputation of being the No Fun League, and with good reason. The league office routinely brings the hammer of Thor down on 'excessive celebrations' and 'props' and Chad 'Ochocinco.'
Ed. Note: That hammer of Thor reference has been brought to you by Paramount Pictures. See Thor in movie theaters now.
(Viral marketing, catch the fever.)
The players can still have their fun and their jokes in the locker rooms, though, away from the cameras and the ever-watchful, vengeful eye of Lord Saur — I mean, Roger Goodell.
This slideshow won't take the regular, easy jokes, like the Pro Bowl or the lockout or Roger Goodell. Hey, two Goodell slams in two sentences, new record. Take that, Peter King.
No regular jokes here, like "he's so stupid it took him three hours to watch 60 Minutes" or "he's so fat, if i poke him on facebook will he jiggle?"
We're talking practical jokes, "a trick played on someone in order to make them look foolish and to amuse others," according to Webster.
How that little kid had time to film a television show and define every word in the English language, I don't know.
Unfortunately, we probably aren't privy to the best practical jokes, like how that wide receiver is the real father of that left tackle's baby. Now that's a good practical joke. Alas, there have to have been some deviously clever practical jokes that we'll never know about.
Let's look at the ones we do know about and, once again, try to forget that the NFL has disbanded.
