What is Sproing (prank)?

Sproing is a neat old system extension prank that once placed in System Folder > Extensions and the Mac rebooted, makes the mouse cursor spring around like crazy.  Every move you do with your cursor will be spring-loaded, that is going up, down, left or right and the more force you move the mouse cursor, the strongest Sproing will bounce the cursor around! It's pretty annoying while trying to access the menubar or moving files around!

Sproing was part of The Macintosh Joker book/disk publication in 1993.
