Some late-night skits are funny, some are funny and weird.

But it's a rare trick when a late-night host, even Jimmy Kimmel (who's essentially become the nation's master TV prankster), pulls them off so successfully, as he did on Tuesday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," with an assist from the Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire and the redoubtable Cousin Sal.

Check out (former Laker) Metta World Peace's limo ride from heck.

What do you think -- is Jimmy Kimmel the best prankster on late-night TV?
