Gangster Prankster

Tim and Adam were work buddies who liked to joke around with each other often. Tim decided to play what he thought was a harmless practical joke by calling Adam and pretending to be a mobster who was after Adam. Tim was sure that Adam would know it was him. Little did he know that Adam thought he was serious and that his own life was in danger. Tim and Adam talk to Dick Gordon about what happened to them when a practical joke went horribly wrong. Also, When Dick interviewed Jerome Boykin after Hurricane Katrina, Jerome was sweeping big box store parking lots. At just 27, he'd become a millionaire. Today, Dick checks in with Jerome to find out how his life and his business are faring 5 years after the big storm.
