They spraypainted some toilet paper. I'm disappointed.

If that's their idea of a 'prank', I'm disappointed too.

"Basically at the end of the year our senoirs, they aren't encouraged, but they sometimes camp out in front of the school,"Berg said.

I can't think of a more boring activity. You couldn't have paid me to camp out in front of my high-school when I was a senior.

To all graduating HS seniors:

The ceremony SUCKS, it's beyond boring and your own family can't even clap or cheer, so fark it, you missed nothing.

Withholding your diploma? AHAHAHAHAHAHA! You will NEVER need that actual piece of paper. Ever.

Your teachers and administrators hate you. You are leaving the school, some of you are moving on to bigger and better things, and they hate you for it because they're coming back to the same shiatty school for another year. They're bitter, empty shells of human beings and will try to fark with you in any petty ass way they can right up until the last minute.

So-plan those pranks, make 'em good, and don't worry. If you've completed the scholastic requirements for graduation, they can't take anything from you that you really need.

Nevermind the question of why but I don't even really understand HOW one would go about spray painting toilet paper. I'd imagine you'd need at least quadruple ply though.

do it right
In 1988, a group of students pulled off the biggest prank at Rice. They rotated the 2,000 pound statue of William Marsh Rice 180 degrees, making Willy face Fondren Library for the first time in 58 years.


"We were sitting in the pub drinking beer, and we decided something had to be done," says John Q. Smith '86, who helped mastermind the operation. After two futile attempts, the pranksters decided the third time had to be the charm.


Three electrical engineers, two mechanical engineers, a civil engineer, a mathematical scientist, a biochemist, a chemist, a physicist and an English major put their brains and brawn together to carry out the elaborate scheme.


Using plans of the statue taken from Fondren Library, they simulated the transfer load through a computer model. They built two 24- foot A-frames, which they painted black to blend with the night, and put a beam on top that supported a three ton hoist in the middle and two one ton hoists on the sides. The A-frames were tested at an off-campus garage by lifting a 2,250-pound Toyota that was swung back and forth to simulate rotation. A pair of Houston police officers looked on after being told the car hoisting was "a senior research project. "


These same police officers stopped the students as they were hauling the A-frames back to campus. Convinced it was only a school project, the officers gave the students a police escort to Entrance 8.
Lookouts and decoys positioned themselves around the Quad and communicated to each other through walkie-talkies using code names from the X-Men comic book series. The light on Anderson Hall had been turned off every night for the two previous weeks. Each morning the pranksters reconnected the light so that physical plant people would not replace it.


In the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 12, 1988, before the sun came up, Willy sat facing the library. Only one student was caught, Patrick Dyson '88, and was made to pay the cost of turning the statue to its rightful position.


Students rallied behind Dyson and sold T -shirts that read, "Where There's A Willy, There's a Way. " More than enough money was collected to pay the cost of restoring Willy to his familiar perspective.
What took the pranksters one hour and cost $400 to do took professional movers three hours and a rumored $1,500-$2,000 to remedy. The students were blamed for breaking a guide pin underneath the statue, but they claim the professional movers did that.

Whew. Good thing Officer Lardbutt was there to investigate these criminals. It always pisses me off when they waste tax dollars chasing murderers and rapists instead of cracking down on teenage kids drinking beer.

A bunch of kids in my senior class decided the prank would be removing all of the license plates from the cars in the faculty parking lot and hiding them. Funny, yes. Felonious, perhaps. Suspension worthy - well, yeah.

How can you charge someone with underage drinking when only having a picture as evidence?

"No officer, that was nonalcoholic beer."

Jesus, that's not a senior prank, it's a Senior Thesis.

They should have gotten course credit for that, not punishment.

Good pranks end up being laughed at/with by everyone.

When I was graduating, I hid the school mascot-uniform under my gown and when my name got called, whipped off the gown and had my buddy hand me this enormous Lions-head (school mascot), before walking across stage to collect my diploma in front of all the family's etc. It was epic, everyone laughed, the teachers thought it was cool, nobody had a problem with it.

Good pranks should be the kinda thing where Teachers and/or authority figures are left saying "well,... I'm *supposed* to punish you, but nobody got hurt, nothing was damaged, nobody was in any real or perceived danger, and damnit, it was actually kinda funny.... so, well, allright, go on out of here you crazy kid."

Spray-painting toilet paper? that I don't get. These kids need a lesson on how to pull pranks.

Wow spray painting toilet paper and posting pics on FB they should get punished for just being lame and stupid.

When I was a sophmore the seniors and a few underclassmen got into the principals office via the courtyard in the center of the building. The offices that faced the courtyard would leave their windows open in the warmer months. And since they faced inward they figured nobody would break in. Well the students broke in and sealed the area around the office door and took the hose that the building service people used to water the plants in the courtyard and just let it loose in the office. By the time the admins got in the water was probably about 3 feet deep. And when the door got opened water flooded the whole admin area. They would have got away with it if a kid that was in my class didnt start talking about what he and his friends did. They all had to pay for it.

High school wasn't a big one, but for fun we snuck the student council onto the school roof during school for photos (serious poses, playing football etc.) Snuck a desk and chairs up there too for the group photo. I guess we got away with it, because some of the photos ended up in the yearbook and nobody clued in on the unusual perspective.

Retired now and on to another career. Yes, I like to think my perception and perspective are respectable enough. Though your comments were so blatently inflammatory and dismal, it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to realize that you had a miserable school life, and that your lingering attitude towards your experience is something that should be at least given some sympathy, and at most, ignored completely.

Hey dont mock spray painting things whilst drunk. I remember (vaguely) reading Slaughterhouse5 then having a little splishy splashy, then decided to spray my boots gold. But sadly, Armed with a litre of RussianStandard and a can of gold paint, who could really stop spraying things after just a pair of shoes??
