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

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?
