There must be something wrong with me because I'm not laughing. (screengrab via NBC10)

I blame Jimmy Kimmel.

He's made everyone so confused about what constitutes a funny Internet prank that young people today think it's hilarious to drive around and pretend to shoot people. 21-year-old Daron Stinson, who appears to consider himself something of an Internet comedian, has been driving around Philly pulling a "drive-by prank." The entirety of the prank is that Stinson and a friend threaten random passersby with a pellet gun painted to look like a handgun and then drive away giggling. Stinson has also been posting the videos of these encounters to Instagram, presumably in hopes they will go viral and he will someday be as respected of a comedian as Mr. Kimmel.
