I agree. Even more reason you should give it a go, IMO

Do it. Make sure to get Lena to video it. This is gonna be a viral hit.

Just be on guard for counter-pranks. Like "Dad, I'm pregnant. And it's not my BF's" in front of the BF.

What if T-Al is thinking "He passed the test!", But Jenny is thinking "Oh, No! - not another joker like my Dad! Who want's a boyfriend that is like their Dad? I better keep looking!"

and that is just kidding, in case it didn't come through in the post! Pretty funny reaction!

How did the follow up conversation go?
