You know, when I was a kid, we didn’t have
all this fancy prankin’ technology.
A soundboard is a collection of sound clips, usually of a celebrity,
that can be used to fool a victim on the other end of a prank phone call
into thinking that he or she is talking to a real person.
Actors with many movie roles, such as Mr. Nicholson, have more dialogue to borrow, so they become very popular sources of clips.
The results can be both funny and surreal.
