Identifies pranks as either contests of wit that establish hierarchy, expressions of dislike toward a particular person or behavior, or expressions of solidarity and affection. Explains that prank pulling is a safe way to express feelings or opinions because the victim does not know how to interpret the prank. Describes prank wars between male and female missionaries as a form of flirtation. Identifies initiation pranks as a means of establishing a sense of community
