Radioactive Ass: How could anyone think that releasing an infestation of insects was a good or funny idea?


It worked for Moses.

This one time in high school we did this stuff and it was awesome.  Then we did some other cool stuff....that on reflection wasn't that great.

Then we lived the rest of our lives and now we're getting older and.....life sucks.

Seniors did this at our school about five or six years back.  Still coming across those damn things in the classroom.

Four of us did alarm clock day. Bought 40 or so wind up alarm clocks and set them to go off within a minute or two of each other. Hide them all over the school. About the time they would find one, the next would go off. Harmless fun that even the superintendent mentioned in his graduation ceremony speech.

At our graduation we had been told "no throwing of the caps in the air" by the principal. I don't remember why he told us that, maybe he thought it wasn't dignified or something.

Anyway, that made all us seniors really upset, so the word spread amongst us graduating students that instead of our caps, we were to bring frisbees in under our gowns and throw them. Somehow the principal found out about this; when we were assembled in the auditorium for the procession out into the gym where we'd get our diplomas, he got up in front of us. "I have heard that some of you may have brought frisbees to throw instead of your caps," he said. "If you will bring the frisbees up to the stage, I'll allow your caps to be thrown instead."

I guess he was expecting a few frisbees. Suddenly there were hundreds of frisbees flying through the air of all colors and sizes. Our graduating class was over 300, and about 2/3 of us had brought the discs to throw. The stage was literally covered in them.

/yes we threw our caps in the air

Senior's dad owned an auto repair shop
Senior got 30 or so worn out tires from dad's shop.
Senior and buddies climbed the flagpole in front of the school and put the tires over it.

It took the custodial staff a few days to develop a strategy...

tuna fingers: 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.


Your shopping center and it's operating budget isn't paid for by tax dollars.  The school is spending "thousands" for pest control because it's not their money.

HotWingAgenda: That is just embarrassing.


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

Looks like you should've stayed in high school a bit longer.

Between having been in high school, and being a high school teacher, this one rates a "meh." That's not to say I disagree with them not being allowed to walk. Consequences, and whatnot.

When I was a freshman, the senior class filled the asst. principal's (in charge of discipline) office with balloons, floor to ceiling, wall to wall. (His secretary was cool as hell, and let them in.) It was funny, and mostly harmless.

Last year at my school, they dumped baby oil on the stairs in one of the stairwells. Then did it two more times in two other stairwells. Not funny, not cool. They were lucky no one got hurt. Some, but not all of the perpetrators were caught, and didn't walk. They were lucky no one was injured. (A couple of kids ended up with bumps and bruises, but for the most part, the majority of the kids preternaturally knew not to use those stairs!)

Now Karo syrup on the bannisters? That's a whole 'nother story! (Not that I'd know anything about that.)

Bonobo62: 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.


They probably recorded it, posted it on YouTube, then linked that on their Duckfacebook page, for which all the school administrators had the password.

Mock26: 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.

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...

Luminiferous Aether: 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.

"...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.
