No idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered with a searching but at the same time a steady eye.
Idea is a thought, concept, or notion.
The word prank was always associated with mischief that may or may not be malicious, I decided to find out what exactly the word meant from the vast list of pranks that were credited to me.
The word I discovered had its origin in 1540-50 Dutch pronken related to the German word Prunk that meant splendorous!
An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all, is what Oscar Wilde says.
While a Prank when used with an object is to dress or adorn in an ostentatious manner. For example they were all pranked out in the fanciest of clothes. The most awesome one I achieved was to transform an Aishwarya Rai look a like(Her cousin actually) with hip length hair into Othello, the make-up artist had forgotten the wig for Othello, that meant we braided her hair and arranged it round her head to appear like African curls!
When not accompanied by an object the word means an ostentatious display. I would go for a classical Indian play production or Greek play, still better about the Argonauts travelling down to China, along the silk route, then settling out there war with the Chinese Hung warriors, and finally the peace settlement.
It would be interesting to work the architectural and cultural diversity, the costumes would be exotic. Imagine the final scene with a red headed Chinese child! Yes that would be awesome.
Would I pull this off, no way, its a prank idea anyway.
Enough of this buffoonery and over dressing of the word, I quit with grace.
