No joke: NYC-based company sued over offensive penis pranks

[ad_1]

Pranks for nothing.

Queens-based Ruin Days will anonymously offend your enemies, ex-lover, boss and even the old lady down the block for a price.

“Just give us their name and address. We’ll take care of the rest,” the website touts.

But not everyone’s laughing at the harassment-like hijinks of Ruin Days, whose calling cards include spring-loaded penis bombs ($22.99), smelly poop in a box ($20.99), Gummy bear-style bag of d–ks ($14.99) and “I’m a piece of s–t” t-shirts ($27.99).

A Long Island woman is seeking legal revenge after an unsolicited package FedExed to her Nassau County home May 29 contained a penis bomb that “exploded in her face,” court papers show.

The phallic missile — “a spring-loaded, tube-shaped package which abruptly and unexpectedly shoots out hundreds of penis shaped plastic-like confetti with high velocity and great force” — was shipped in a package, “designed to disguise the true nature of its contents,” the suit says. The sender was listed as “Nostalgic Inc.”

The Long Island woman, who was “shocked and scared by the explosion of projectiles,” is seeking unspecified damages for alleged assault, battery, emotional distress and negligence, court papers state.

A Southern California woman is also taking the pranksters to Queens Supreme Court after receiving a vile “How to Not Be A ‘C–t” book in May and an “Eat A D–k” card in August at her workplace in Irvine.

“Smelly Poop in a Box” is among Ruin Days’ available pranks.

“My client feels like anyone else would feel. Scared. Shocked. Violated. Certainly disturbed and certainly distressed,” attorney David Barry told The Post, noting the defendant, R&D Promos, “walks the line between what is completely inappropriate and decent and what may potentially be civilly and criminally actionable.”

Barry said R&D Promos, which runs the website RuinDays.com, has yet to answer the December complaint and he will soon seek a default judgment.

RuinDays has also been sued by recipients in New Jersey, KentuckyMaryland and Ohio.

In the Maryland case, also filed in Queens Supreme Court, a woman sued for more than $600,000 after a package she thought was from Amazon turned out to be an R&D glitter bomb that exploded in her face in June 2018, court papers say. She claimed the explosion also caused damage to her computer.

R&D Promos did not return messages. RuinDays.com includes the disclaimer: “Our service is meant to be used to deliver a ‘gag’ gift. It is not to be used to harass or harm anyone in anyway. If there is any doubt, do not use our service.”
