A term that was created when someone misheard the expression prank call.

Since the debut of the show Crank Yankers, the name has stuck. This is unfortunate since "crank" call doesn't make any sense.
Person 1: Dude the other day we made a bunch of crank calls, it was hilarious!

Person 2: You made what? You mean PRANK calls, right?

Person 1: Prank call? ... Huh, I guess you're right.

a type of prank call where the person is old enough to have better ways of entertaining himself, or is motivated by pathology of some sort.

Crank calls aren't funny, and usually they're intended to be scary-- or antagonize in some way.
