    The new boy at school seemed to be fair game for farcical jokers.

    A few vocabularies first:

    1. game = the animals, like birds and fish, being hunted for fun/food

    2. fair game = likely object (persons, games) to be targeted for hunting/bullying.

    3. farcical = absurd

    這新男孩子看起來像是可以(被那些愛開玩笑的笨蛋)用來捉弄得好目標

    Both practical jokers and farcical jokers make sense but the latter is much better English in this context.

    Oh, did I do that? I thought a fair game is the game that everyone wins?
