I love a good prank and have pulled off a few good ones in my time. One of them I almost got into Big Big Trouble for when the brown, gooey stuff hit the mechanical cooling device but we won't talk about that... 🙂
Now, I'd be the first to admit that Japanese tourists are an easy target but this prank is just utterly childish, silly and very funny.
A practical joker has stirred up trouble by publishing a Japanese-to-English phrase book with incorrect definitions for every phrase!
...the phrase for 'I am very pleased to meet you' is given as 'My friend, your breath could knock over a water buffalo.'"
Of course, hackers have a long history of practical jokes although you'd have to be a true geek to find some of these funny 🙂
