In every family, there’s generally at least one prankster. He loves to put Vaseline on a doorknob, saran wrap your car, or sneak the occasional whoopee cushion under your chair. And while it’s not always fun to be on the receiving end, we must admit, we’ve pulled a few jokes on people and enjoyed the laughs that ensued. 

As it turns out, helping others play jokes on friends and family can be a pretty lucrative business: In fact, Joel Comm, the developer of the iFart application for the iPhone and iPod Touch, admits to making over $40,000 in just two days! Comm has been very open and honest about his success, sharing sales figures on his
blog

On December 12th, the iFart app was ranked #70 in entertainment. Just ten days later, it hit number one overall. The days following (December 23, 24, and 25) were even better, with sales continuing to rise. On 12/24, Comm notes that they sold 19,520 units, which will net him $13,364 after Apple takes its cut. With all of the people who received iPhones and iPod Touches for Christmas, Comm figured that sales might continue to climb. He was right: On Christmas day, almost 39,000 people purchased iFart Mobile. iFart isn’t the only app who’s making good money these days, either. According to
MacRumors, a number of other developers have also seen an increase in sales, sometimes by as much as three or four times. 

iFart is a 99-cent novelty app that helps you unleash digital weapons of methane destruction on innocent bystanders. The app even has a built-in security system that is suppose to discourage iPhone theft—the app will sense when the phone has been picked up and will play a chosen noise. There’s also a “sneak attack” mode for pulling pranks on parents, co-workers, and friends. Check out this video from the creators of iFart that outlines some of these features:

This is kind of funny, saw some videos on youtube, but at the same time kind of stupid. I think it's a waste of money.

lol pretty funny. Bob, youve never put vaseline on a door knob? Come on man, it makes it nearly impossible to twist the door knob so you cant get the door open without several embarrassing tries. My boss and i did this to our bathroom doorknob at work, and laughed our ***'s off as my co worker tried to get into the bathroom to go and she had to go real bad lol. Ah good times...

Every year there is a senior prant at our school since we are high schoolers and two years ago all the doorknobs had vaseline on them. it was pretty funny how teachers were coming with full hands and wanted to get into their classrooms with not much luck. :)

Last year our seniors put all the trash cans up on the roof of the buildings... I don't know how they did that, and put post it notes all over campus. Some were even on the top of the buildings which was insane. :) Crazy stuff.
