Douchebags, generations of them, through and through. Parents, your little snowflakes perpetrated a prank that is costly and time-consuming to deal with. You should've raised your crotchfruit to be more creative and less destructive, and having your kiddies not walk is the perfect punishment for them, and you.

My high school was naturally infested with crickets.
 
2013-05-19 12:16:55 AM
Seniors did this at our school about five or six years back.  Still coming across those damn things in the classroom.
 
2013-05-19 12:19:27 AM
How the hell did they get caught? Are kids these days announcing their pranks and trying to take credit? I've done much worse than just a few thousand crickets, but never let anyone pin any of it on me.

Shoot, I would have done something like this if it would have meant I got to skip graduation.  The graduation ceremony is boring.  Some blowhard talking for nearly an hour and a half, then some other blowhard reading the names of everyone in the class, who then walk across a stage to receive an empty cardboard folder (the actual diplomas are married later).  When all anyone wants to do is GTFO and go party with their friends.  I've been the unwilling victim of four of my own graduation ceremonies (high school, two bachelors' degrees, and pharmacy school) and have hated every one.

Seems like it took their entire educational lives to learn actions have consequences.

Consequences - your graduation present. Congratulations!!

They got caught, so they should be punished.  Hopefully the class behind them will learn from this mistake and not get caught when they pull off their stupid senior prank.

"...and further more, you kids get off my lawn!"

Who switched arthritis cream for your bedside lotion? I'll bet you wore sweaters to school.

By the time I was a senior in high school I had participated in releasing the FFA chickens into the main building,
dragged the Assistant Principal's Volkwagen Bug into the main hallway and chained it to a drinking fountain (running), painted Limburger cheese over the heating system intake vents (night before everybody came back from Christmas break), emptied a dump truck of horse manure onto the Senior Lawn, and painted the interior of the band room black. What's a few crickets?

Of course, I never got caught and I believe the statute of limitations for retroactive flunking has expired.

I don't know about other countries, but in the US senior pranks are a time honored tradition about one year older than another tradition. That, of course, is the administration warning the senior class that students involved in them will not be allowed to attend the graduation ceremony. It happened at my school, schools that people I know went to, and is often mentioned in articles where kids like these get in trouble for them. It didn't get mentioned in this article, but I assume it happened. Even if it didn't, these kids still get to take responsibility for their action.

It's not a big deal anyway. Maybe some family members are upset, but as someone who doesn't care about ceremony I can honestly say I remember almost nothing from my graduation other than it was hot and boring and I'd have been fine missing it. You still get the paper. You still get to go to the parties after. You just don't get the photo that no one but grandma cares about in 3 months. Spend some time with her over the summer and she'll get over it. You should probably do that anyway. Or rent a gown on your own time and fake it for her.
 
2013-05-19 12:37:37 AM
We would place the assistant principal's 1962 VW Beetle between two poles, he eventually had one of the poles removed. Yes, we could carry the VW.

I think my senior year people drove trucks onto the quad to hook up and rip out a bunch of the vending machines..

And they put crap all over the baseball field that may or may not have killed it and the baseball coach was fuming more than anyone.

Some people are just too dumb to see the difference between a good prank and vandalism.

Stupid is as stupid does. If they had done this at their place of employment they probably have been fired and charged with criminal mischief in addition to being sent the bill.

Where my kids attend school, the seniors don't get their diploma's until all their debts are cleared. The debts include violations against school rules as well as penalties and citations from the county Sheriff's Dept.  

You either pay your way and collect a Diploma or you do not pass Go and go straight to jail.  It's a Chance they take, but one that the Community Chest will NOT pay for.  Some of us hillbillies have a Monopoly on our in-bred spawns.

The class that graduated ahead of mine stole a bunch of tombstones and leaned them up against the school entrance.

They seemed shocked that anyone would have a problem with this.

What a dumb farking prank, they (or their parents) should be charged the exterminator costs.
 
2013-05-19 12:52:56 AM
Some kids at my school did the cricket thing.  It got cleaned up within a day or so and everyone, including school administration, moved on with their lives.  We had other bugs infesting the school anyways, and crickets are harmless.

Also:
after working 13 years toward earning a diploma, he shouldn't be kept out of the graduation ceremony

That is just embarrassing.

/went to my high school graduation, completely ignored the college graduation

I was the only person in my graduating class to pull a senior prank.  I just went to school early one morning and put up a "please use other door" sign on every external door on the building.  The signs on the double doors had arrows on them pointing to each other.  Then I sat near the main entrance with my friends and laughed and laughed at all the other kids as they showed up and couldn't figure out how to get into the building.  I thought most people would ignore the signs, but most of them stood there, staring, clearly unsure if they were actually allowed to use the doors or not.  It was hysterical to watch.  My friends and I all got a good laugh out of it, most of the staff thought it was funny, and I hadn't broken a single rule so the few sticks-in-the-mud who weren't amused couldn't get me in trouble for it.

/cool story

I will get the hawks ready to take care of the lizard infestation.
 
2013-05-19 12:55:26 AM
When I was a senior. we released crickets numbered from 1 to 2000. But we only actually released 1999.

Yeah, then they need to release giant snakes to eat the lizards, then weasels to eat the snakes, and eventually they'll have a school full of gorillas and nobody will have any idea how to deal with that infestation.


Anyway, these kids are stupid, irresponsible, and thoughtless. They should not only be prevented from walking in graduation; They should be forced to take one more summer class (on ethics, perhaps) before earning their diplomas.

Who should be embarrassed here?

13 years = Kindergarten + 1st-12th grades.

As if sitting through boring speeches while wearing a ridiculous costume compares to the fun that you can have as a college student, graduating, then having a chance at a real life.

Good chance that you won't know the other kids that you hung out with in high school a year or two from now.  These kids think that the friends they have now will be there when they have moved on.  It ain't like that.

Life is NOT an American Pie movie...get over it.

I'm probably younger than both of you, I just have no tolerance for weak bullshiat. Either go totally harmless/noninvasive or HAZMAT 6. Be funny and creative, or be farking brutal. This stunt was neither, thus I am disappoint, and welcome the minor misery of not-walking-at-graduation-ceremony to the perpetrators and their progenitors.

Almost like the time we released a few baby goats into the halls with the numbers 1, 2, & 4 spray painted onto them... Let them figure the rest out...

I hear you. You go to them for your family and friends that love you and want to see you have a milestone of you succeeding. It's a cross that you willingly bear. You are not an unwilling victim. You go through it as a willing participant.

At my high school a few seniors ran 4x4's on the soccer field while others climbed school buildings and pissed on officers.  School threatened ever senior if they brought marbles or wore shorts to closing ceremony.

Hated school, when it was time to leave, I left.   What's the point of going back to a sh*t hole?  Codependent?
 
2013-05-19 01:14:05 AM
Thousands of dollars? Um... No. I hire a pest control guy for the shopping center I manage and I get him to spray emergency flare-ups of cockroaches for 100 bucks a pop. To perform routine maintenance on a half million s.f. of retail space costs $275.

You don't actually get graded for kindergarten.  That's why 1st grade starts with... wait for it.... 1st f*cking grade.  This lady is saying her son got held back.

Recurring contract spanning years? There is a substantial discount for that. They know the hot spots and the remedy for known problems. Now ask them what they would charge for a malicious release of thousands of insects such as noisy grasshoppers in the mall in general. Then ask a company that didn't know the current insect hotspots how much they would charge without a recurring contract. Yeah, thousands of dollars. For .5 million SF probably a lot more than a couple of thousand bucks.
