6 Zodiac Signs Who Are The Biggest Pranksters

They love a good joke... at your expense.

6 Zodiac Signs Who Are The Biggest Pranksters, According To Astrology getty

Nothing is worse than being the butt of someone's joke... unless, of course, you like that sort of thing, which might also make you that special person who enjoys making your own friends feel stupid for simply existing. Well, maybe not that vicious, but it does take a certain kind of person to be the one who pranks others.

The prankster zodiac signs among us don't mind making jokes at someone else's expense. And according to astrology, there are certain signs who take pride in being jokesters. Whether or not you follow horoscopes, there is a thing called schadenfreude, which means to take joy in the pain or humiliation of others. For some, this is a form of entertainment.


Practical jokes and practical jokers are both wanted and unwanted. Why some get into watching others fall, trip, hurt themselves, nearly die or simply do something massively stupid is beyond me... yet, a href="https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/lists/jackass-gang-on-their-12-most…">we have TV shows dedicated to such things, because obviously there is a demand for voyeuristic sadism.

What fun it is to watch your friend break an arm! Oh, the laughs, the chills and spills! There's just never enough pain and stupidity in this world to please the one who enjoys practical jokes and pranks.

Of course, I am being facetious, because I, myself, have always hated practical jokes. To me, this is the height of insensitivity. Those who laugh at practical jokes and evil pranks are the same folks who laugh hysterically when someone vomits — as if puking one's brains out is akin to being to told the funniest joke you've ever heard.


Yet, there are those who find all things damaging, cruel, sick, and off guard hilariously funny. Good for them. So, who are these folks and do they have a commonality with their zodiac sign? What 6 funny zodiac signs are the biggest pranksters and jokers?

1. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Naturally mean, selfish and judgmental, Virgo takes enormous pleasure in watching others suffer, especially through their own stupidity. If there is a waiting line to get you to do something ridiculous so that it can be filmed and you, in turn, can be ridiculed to Hell and back, Virgo is first on line.

2. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Another of the heartless signs, the lack of compassion shown in Aquarians is worthy of an Olympic medal. While they themselves have a weak sense of humor and can just barely crack a joke, they sure do love to watch someone else fail miserably. And if you, by some chance, fell for someone's prank, then Aquarius will be right there to laugh at you, while you suffer.

3. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

So filled with hate and a private desire to destroy everything and everyone on earth is Scorpio, that the only thing these poor people can do for kicks anymore is delight in your foolishness. Expect daily pranks and terrible, cruel practical jokes from this sign. To quote Alice Cooper, "My pain, your thrill..."

4. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

They might have a mini crisis of conscience while pulling a prank on you, but their desire to watch you squirm is just so much greater than any desire to hold off. It's kind of a strange predicament with Capricorn; they "almost" don't want to make you into the world's biggest idiot, but not enough to actually stop playing the joke on you.

5. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Not up there with the biggest pranksters, but certainly up their with Those Who Rank — and Prank. Cancer is a closet sadist, and being that their sadistic desires tend to be more along the lines of humiliation, they are more than thrilled to play a wicked joke on a good friend, because in their minds, "It's all funny, isn't it?" No. It's not always funny, Cancer.

6. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

The only thing worse than being pranked by a Taurus is how Taurus themselves feel after they've been pranked. Oh, they can dish it out well, but they cannot take it, and while they love to do damage for the sake of a laugh, they get so totally butthurt when it's done to them... that it's actually hysterically funny.


Taurus is a strong sign, and they definitely push way too hard, but man, when they fall, it's almost worth the effort you'd make to play a rotten joke on them.
