Never ever participate in a prank

It never pays to be mean, but being mean to a nerd, geek, dork, misfit, freak, or weirdo is liable to get you killed. For one, a Slasher might spot you doing to some mathlete what the popular kid did to him years ago and decide to take it out on you, then and there.

Conversely, by terrorizing the socially awkward kid, you might be creating a future Slasher, one who will come after you on the anniversary of his public pantsing.
