2003-05-30 02:52:37 PM  
Just wait till they see what I did in the sink.
2003-05-30 02:53:55 PM  
Ask a fish head anything you want to.. they won't answer, they can't talk...

Some dudes did that to my dorm in college. They pulled off the AC vent cover, put an open can of stinkbait in there and closed it back up.

The stench was so bad people were vomiting in the hall. That added to the stench. Even more vomitting ensued.

Took three days to find the stinkbait.

his frontal lobe a retread.

Oh, to be in school again.
2003-05-30 02:58:11 PM them up, yum!!!!

This story totally did not warrant the length of the article.

They should prank the responsible party(ies) with a tire iron.
2003-05-30 02:58:48 PM  
I did something similar in college with sardines.... walked down the hall of the dorm and leaked the juice they are packed in on the carpet. Caused quite a stink.

Still doesn't beat the milky sock.

/takes the baton

I took a fish head out to see a movie.
Didn't have to pay to get it in.

I don't recall any high school pranks; kinda tough when one's mother worked there.

Then there's my brother....

However, my extracurricular "pranks" usually involved boom-booms.

Good times, good times....

Did you take it to dinner first? That's courtship protocol, ya know.

An octopus under the back seat is a good way to get revenge. Squid works good as well.

"Someone brought some fowl smelling stuff into school"

2003-05-30 03:09:38 PM  
For some reason I think the name Principal Van Seasholes is really funny. Don't know why.
2003-05-30 03:10:10 PM  
the seniors in our school take fox urine and put it on the walls in the hallways. it stinks pretty bad and doesn't come out easily. next year i get to follow in the tradition :) now where to find fox piss...
2003-05-30 03:10:31 PM  
Ok, so it's definitely a prank? This would explain the breaking news of the terror threat being lowered to yellow.

The fish guts were definitely not a terrorist plot. Good. Thanks for clearing this up.
2003-05-30 03:12:01 PM  
The Sbb girl pushing it out whilst hanging onto the pole has me thinking of other things.

Such as the round mound of rebound.
2003-05-30 03:14:58 PM  
Holy mackeral, I think this was a very shellfish act. Hope the authorities can flex their mussles before these kids clam up. This spawns from the parents not towing the line. I mean a boatload of parents...

-gets the hook-

..hey I'm not FINished!
2003-05-30 03:17:58 PM  
This happenened in Massachusetts? Anyone know if Ted Kennedy was in town the day this took place? That might explain something. ;-)
2003-05-30 03:21:26 PM  
BassettHound: There are soooo many reason why he might smell like fish
2003-05-30 03:22:14 PM  
LexiLuthor: We were both wrong:

Roly poly fish heads are never seen drinking cappuccino
In Italian restaurants with oriental women yeah
2003-05-30 03:24:52 PM  
They were being a couple of stiffly stiffersons, so I pranked them.

2003-05-30 03:25:39 PM

I jumped out and pranked him! To death with a tire iron!
2003-05-30 03:30:32 PM  
Instead of Van Seasholes, I saw Van Asholes. I did a double-take.
2003-05-30 03:35:30 PM  
Merry Fishmas!!!!!!!

Their paper is called the Minuteman. Wonder what the sex advice column looks like.
2003-05-30 03:39:50 PM  
the Lexington Fire Department were dispatched to help deodorize the scene

Hmm, I think I'll try that next time, screw buying air fresheners.

"Hello? Fire department? Yes, my apartment is getting a bit ripe, can you come over and freshen it up for me? Thanks."
2003-05-30 03:39:53 PM  
Lunaticcalm - I just had to do it...for the halibut!
2003-05-30 03:42:01 PM  
I'll bet it was fish emulsion... that stuff reeks.
2003-05-30 03:44:15 PM  
Thanks for the update, LexiLuthor. Stay tuned for more coverage of this story as it unfolds.

can you imagine how the heat is instensifying that smell even more?
2003-05-30 04:17:45 PM  
FINALLY!! My home town made!! I didn't go to the HS, but my mom teaches there.
2003-05-30 04:19:01 PM  
Lexington Fire Captain Mike Fulton said a ladder truck was sent to the scene around 9:09 a.m.

At around 9:09 a.m. It could have been 9:08 and 40 seconds. Or maybe 9:09 and 10 seconds.

"Ow, my eye! I'm not supposed to get fish guts in it!"

I can't believe it! I did the exact same thing in high-school. See, it went down like this... I managed to snag a full set of school keys one day (all master keys for doors, safes, storage, off-site and on-site). We snuck into the school many times to do various nepharious things. The all time greatest was when we stuffed 20 kilos of raw crab meat into the main heat exchange on a saturday night. I got to school monday morning and everyone was standing around outside and there were firemen milling around in biohazard suits. Nobody ever found out....

I think the statute of limitations expired when they knocked down my school. Anyway, it was over 15 years ago, nobody was hurt, the kids got a couple hours off from school.
2003-05-30 05:46:37 PM

Dana Ham is (was?) the DARE officer at LHS. Also, his name is "Ham".
2003-05-30 05:55:40 PM

i got fired from a place once, i went to wally world and bought four cheap fish, put them in a bag outside on thursday, saturday morning(already ripe) i took them to the place(closed) hid them near the smoking areas, the bathroom vent area, under the trashcan near the front door and one on the loading dock, i drove by about 10 times on monday, everyone had gone home sick and they were closed about 4 days, it only cost me 6 bucks.
