The art of pranking has no doubt altered a little over these past few months.
Just like everything else amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the usual ways we go about poking fun at others has most likely been put on hold temporarily, or at the very least, changed, but if a global pandemic still isn’t about to stop you from pulling off the perfect practical joke on your next victim, then it’s definitely worth checking out this genius Used Panties Prank from SniffPanties.co.uk.
How does it work though?
Well, according the Sniff Panties website, this discreet service is all about “first impressions” and “authenticity”.
This is unique prank designed to help you poke a bit of fun at “a work colleague, friend, family member, partner, or even someone you hate? Perhaps even an ex or a worst enemy?” by sending them some used panties to sniff.
Of course though, not real used panties but “the illusion of some”.
The description for the service online reads: “To make this prank highly effective, we’ve designed an awesome label which we think anyone would believe has come from a real used pantie company. Every package comes with a bit of pantie lace hanging out of the back for maximum effectiveness,
“[It’s] guaranteed to mortify your intended victim.”
“Once your victim has opened the hilarious package, the penny will finally drop and they will realise that they’ve been pranked by reading the laminated double-sided card [which is] from anonymous of course.”
Sounds like a good bit or harmless fun, right?
Imagine the look on the postie’s face having to hand this over and there’s even an option to have it signed for too, which means that the prankee will actually have to interact with the person delivering the fake package.
The Sniff Panties Used Panties Prank Package will set you back just £4.99 + postage.

‘Significant risk’ of UK gas shortages this winter, regulator warns
Energy regulator Ofgem has warned that the UK faces a ‘significant risk’ of gas shortages this winter.
According to reports in The Times, the regulator has unveiled concerns that the country could face blackouts over the coming months thanks to an undersupply of gas to Europe caused by Russia’s war with Ukraine.
Warning that a “gas supply emergency” could be looming ahead, the energy regulator has said that some gas-fired power plants could see their supplies cut off, which in turn would stop generators from producing electricity.
The alert comes just days before an expected update from the National Grid on the likelihood of countrywide power cuts this winter.
Responsing to arequest from SSE, which owns several gas power stations, Ofgem outlined what is set to be a huge issue of concern given that the UK relies on large gas plants to produce the biggest share of its electricity supply.
The regulator also pointed to rules that could see power plants penalised as a result of shortages, warning of a worst-case scenario that would see the “potential insolvency of gas-fired generators” caused by rules that require plants to pay huge charges if they fail to deliver on promised quotas.
Adding that the issue must be addressed to prevent a “significant impact on the safety and security of the electricity and/or gas systems”, the regulator echoed concerns now widespread in Europe as its comments followed a similar statement made by the International Energy Agency (IEA) this morning.
Europeans are already being told they must lower their thermostats and boilers in preparation in case gas supplies are cut off, with Paris-based agency IEA warning today that the EU must focus on getting underground gas reserve levels to 90% of capacity in case of a complete Russian supply shut-off.
Preparation are already being made in Europe with the German government having approved a set of energy-saving measures for the winter to limit use in public buildings. In France, meanwhile, companies have already been warned they may face energy rationing this winter.
Whilst the UK government is yet to announce any energey saving measures, Ofgem has said that it expect s“this winter to be more challenging than last year” and that it is taking “reasonable regulatory steps to mitigate and reduce the risks”.
