Rhetorical question, synonymous with 'is this a joke?' asked when something even remotely unexpected has occurred. Soulless teenage girls have recently been prone to using this phrase because "is this a joke?" has become too mainstream; the use of it gives them a feeling of individuality.
1. Teacher: today we will be having a pop quiz.

Teenage girl: is this a prank? what's happening...?

2. Doctor: you're entire family has died in a car accident.

Teenage girl: meep. Is this a prank?

3. *drops a french fry on the floor

Teenage girl: is this a prank?

4. *absolutely nothing has happened at all

Teenage girl: is this a prank?
