Aaron Rodgers: 'I can appreciate a good practical joke'

On Monday, our nation watched gripped as Aaron Rodgers absorbed a shaving cream pie in the face. On Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback assured us he can take a little ribbing.

"You know what? I can appreciate a good practical joke," Rodgers told ESPNWisconsin.com. "I think in order to be someone who enjoys doing those things, you have to know at some point it's going to come back to you. I didn't expect my old partner (long-snapper) Brett Goode to be a part of that. He was kind of distracting me in the back and taking my attention over there, while (fullback) John (Kuhn) snuck around and got by JB (public relations executive Jonathan Butnick) and got me in the face. But I respect the prank."

Rodgers then warned reporters of a second -- less-charitable -- prank on the horizon, a gag targeting Kuhn and Goode that would bypass the whimsy of shaving cream pies for something darker.

"They've got to understand when they do it to me, it's going to come back probably twice as hard," Rodgers said.

John Kuhn has not been seen from since.
