Shaq -- Pranked at the Waffle House!

8/24/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaquille O'Neal got more than he bargained for when he sat down for breakfast at a Waffle House in Tennessee last week -- because the dude was the target of a practical joke that was executed to perfection.

Sources at the Waffle House -- yeah, we got those too -- tell us Shaq arrived with Hoopz from the VH1 reality show "Flavor of Love" ... and they both saddled up at the counter.

We're told they each ordered scrambled eggs with cheese and a waffle -- and Shaq had an orange juice ... an OJ that would play a key role in the prank when Shaq got up to use the bathroom.

We're told Hoopz pulled the 'ol "Dump the salt in the OJ" routine -- and when Shaq returned from the can, he took a big, fat sip of the tainted concoction. We're told everybody laughed at the gag ... including the big man.

But the best part of the meal -- when it came time to pay the $20 bill ... Shaq left a $30 tip.

Shaq and his wife both messed that marriage up not just Shaq.. She was the one cheating with her so called personal trainer. Shaq is a real nice person. I read in an article that Shaq once bought a car for someone he was a complete stranger. The man's car was making too much noise and Shaq had the man follow him to a car dealership and bought the man a brand new car. It's the way Shaq was brought up.

Oops. The word Hoopz threw me. I never heard of her before. But I'll still stay out of Waffle House in case Kid Rock shows up

Shaq is a real d***. I heard he is being sued for trying to have someone arrested falsely. Word is, it's the guy who ratted him out to his wife and friends.

#24 Gail, yes she has been in a few videos but she's a real down to earth person. She's from right here in Michigan she even came over & took a picture with my daughter. but she seems to always be getting engaged to some athlete. I hope Nikki finds the right person & it's not shaq.
