Vallance on MTV

Jeffrey Valance was one of my favorite pranksters from the original Pranks Book. Valance did all sorts of great stuff like paint wall socket coverings with strange little images and swap them out at art museums. He had a funeral and a plot of land taken out for a frozen turkey. And my personal favorite, when he was a kid his father used to hate garden snails to the point of going out every morning and stomping them. So Valance woke up really early one day and painted tiny American Flags on the shells of as many snails as he could find. It apparently freaked his dad out really bad, and he quit stomping snais. Great Prankster, great artist.
