The prank was impressive. The guy secretly installed equipment to measure the weight of the sexual encounter, and the intensity, in the bed the couple used to have sex on. The guy was apparently getting his friend back for another prank that had been pulled on him back in the day.
“You’ll know when it starts, when it ends, the force, a rating on the frenzy index and a judge’s comment – all broadcast live to Twitter,” the man tweeted.
And know we did. He posted such tweets as “They’re off the job! #2 – Action concluded at 16.12GMT. Duration: 22 m.05 s. Frenzy Index: 4 (easy listening). Judge’s Comment: ‘Good work!’”
I can only hope that if my sex acts are ever secretly recorded that I am able to score highly in the “frenzy index”. The “frenzy index” is actually not just something the guy made up, it is an index used by scientists to quantify the intensity with which a shark disembowels a seal, but can also be applied in the bedroom.
Hopefully this is only the tip of the iceberg as far as Twitter based pranks go. The tweet engine has been highly beneficial in helping the world follow oppression in Iran, and the devastation of the earthquakes in Chili and Haiti, it’s high time we got off the serious stuff and enjoyed ourselves with Twitter a little bit. I’d like to see a constant Twitter feed updating us on how slowly Lindsay Lohan is opening and closing one eye at a party, or a Twitter feed that kept us up to date on the amount of pressure James Gandolfini was currently applying to a small time New York Shopkeeper to “pay for the family’s protection”.
