Lightly touching women’s stomachs while they’re sitting down… and other strange pranks
I noticed several odd pranks in the news:
  • Touching women's stomachs: Tosh.0 had a segment on his show about women's reactions when you lightly touch their stomachs while they're sitting down, and he encouraged his viewers to try this during the commercial break to see what would happen. According to Time, lots of people promptly began posting videos to youtube showing themselves doing this.

  • "I've buried the body": Over in Western Australia, many people are reporting that they're receiving a puzzling text message: "I have buried the body like you told me to. What do you want me to do now?”  Police are telling them to ignore the message, and are warning the pranksters that sending such a message could lead to fines or imprisonment. link: smh.com.au

I don't seem to be one of the special ones to get this mysterious text message. downer

And I read the title of this entry as "Lightning touches women's stomachs...", which sounds a lot more awesome than the reality.
