Several years ago at a local high school they did the following:

1)  TP'd the entire exterior of the building.  (No cost other than cleanup).
2)  Put super glue in all of the exterior door locks.  (Locks required replacement).
3)  Carefully placed the 10' alligator they had shot and killed in front of the main entrance with it's mouth propped open with a flower pot.  (Depending on which side of the Mississippi river it was killed possible felony.)

That principal is a pretty good sport, because he obviously could have asked them to leave the property.

Oh, that is too funny.  Good job, future America!

The headline says "2 hours".

According to TFA, "the band kept at it for an hour-and-a-half".

Subby, why must you turn Fark into a house of LIES!!!

Obviously the principal had a sense of humor about it, since he didn't kick them out of the school. I'm sure he'll be gone by fall.
 
2014-06-05 10:35:05 AM
Clever, and funny.   And I give the principal credit for not having zero tolerance.

/non-zero tolerance?

If it was my junior high school prinicpal, he would have held them back a year.

That was pretty damn good.

Beats the hell out of shiat we see around here, last year one of the "pranks" was to break in and throw paint all over the rooms, desks, hallways, etc.

No, that's vandalism you idiots.

Anyway....good on these seniors!

With the help of his wife, took my cousin's principal's VW bug and moved it into the main hall of the school. Had to hand carry it up about 7 steps, and remove a center door post, but we did it. No scratches, even.

Question:

Did they feel their job was done after the hour and a half, or were they about to run out of material?

Nothing. My senior year they were going to paint the rail overpass behind the school, got busted, and spent the rest of the year doing community service projects.

During the senior year, being in automotve, it was realativly easy to get a bunch of guys together, take all the license plates off the staff members cars, and switch them all.  Harmless mostly.   The staff figured it out when one of the members had a custome plate "hatrix" (for darts) ended up on a bus.  Never did get caught.

// Apparetly the next year, the big prank involved putting the passanger side tires of staff members they hated on the roof of the school.

And he'd be on their ass all year long.

If he were alive today, I have no doubt he'd be on FOX News screaming daily about Benghazi, birth certificates, and now, Bergdahl.

He would always justify his zero-tolerance bullshiat with, "I'm proud to be an American, not...."

Some kids from autoshop cut an old junk car in half and welded it back together around a light post in the school parking lot.

We didn't have senior pranks, we had Senior Skip Day.  A random day in June was decided upon and most of the seniors would just skip school and head to the boardwalk or Six Flags.

But as senior pranks go, having a mariachi band shadow your principal is pretty damn funny.
 
2014-06-05 10:52:44 AM
Some seniors released a chicken in the halls.

That would have been funny, but then they started throwing cinder blocks at it once it escaped outside. That was not funny.

Good effort- in 1979 the seniors at my (then) all-boys school dismantled a Bug and rebuilt it inside the sports supply closet after moving all the gear into a big pile in the middle of the gym. Janitorial was doing their morning walkthrough and found all the gear and thought it was the prank, chucked, and opened the door to the closet...

They were so impressed, they left it there all day. Pretty sure there's a photo in the alumni lounge.

My senior year nothing really happened.

My sophomore year, however, was the year of the infamous "green mouse" incident.

Seniors that year decided the best prank they could pull was to purchase 203 white mice (as the year was 2003, but that would have been a bit much), and use food dye to color them blue and yellow (school colors).  The second part didn't go so well, so we ended up with 203 mostly green mice.

They took all the mice, found a used, unlocked, centrally located locker in the school, piled all the mice into it, and waited.  About halfway through the day the girl returned to her locker,opened it to exchange books, and all the mice just swarmed out into the hallways, causing something of a panic throughout the school.

Many of the mice ended up killed (sadly), either from being trampled or exterminated later by pest control.  My favorite part of the whole prank was an unintended consequence: It really highlighted the character of some of the teachers.  Two of my noticeable favorites were:

- The male art teacher, a chauvinistic macho redneck pig of a human being (not sure how he ended up in art, but anyway) who was so terrified of the mice that he spent the majority of the day teaching while standing on his desk stool, and

- My English teacher, a little old kind-hearted woman who was so concerned for the safety of the mice that every time she spotted one, she'd scoop it up and stuff it in the pockets of her cardigan.

The seniors who committed the prank weren't allowed to walk at graduation, but I highly doubt they cared.

We had a similar day. Historically it was the friday before memorial day weekend. Most seniors but it became anyone who could make it there, would drive to either RI or Cape Cod and have a huge campout / party.

The killjoys at the school eventually decided that anyone skipping school on that day would not be able to walk at graduation.

I had sex with the science teacher.

Anal sex.

During televised morning announcements.

It was not consensual.

We had a good laugh.

My old high school also had what was known as "Senior Skip Day" every year, the teachers knew about it, every year the principal would say "No Senior Skip Day", seniors would still skip the day, nothing would happen to the seniors who skipped (and back when I was in high school, the drinking age in Wisconsin was still 18, so I'll give you three guesses as to what most of the day was spent doing, and the first two don't count).

BizarreMan: Several years ago at a local high school they did the following:

1)  TP'd the entire exterior of the building.  (No cost other than cleanup).
2)  Put super glue in all of the exterior door locks.  (Locks required replacement).
3)  Carefully placed the 10' alligator they had shot and killed in front of the main entrance with it's mouth propped open with a flower pot.  (Depending on which side of the Mississippi river it was killed possible felony.)


We TP'd the school... Went back to the store 1 or 2 times in the middle of the night. 2 am TP runs when you buy 40 rolls are kind of obvious. I think I added up roughly 120 rolls on the main building and trees, it was rather cool. Also climbed on the roof and put the garbage cans up there. Cops were cruising the school, but making no effort to come find us, which would have been easy. Obviously, they were just monitoring for actual vandalism.

Some jackass tried to make a "citizen's arrest" because we were too noisy. He came outside with a flashlight and his social security card for some reason.

Went out into the desert at like 5:15 to get some nappy-time in, but were back in town 45 minutes later. The school was almost entirely cleaned. It was a bummer, although they didn't get it all and didn't discover my garbage cans until lunch time.

But...

It wasn't destructive.
The cops/school officials let us do our thing as ling as we didn't start trying to break in.
Our group of 15 or so still has memories.
Nobody's safety was at risk except for our own. We didn't put a beehive in the school, or something like that.

Not really. More like a huge waste of money they earned mowing lawns in the summer.

My class didn't do anything, as there was a big stink being raised about the next town over's prank from the year before (where a pig was dyed green and set loose in the halls).

But I will always remember the story my senior year English teacher told us about a prank from the 70s (He had been teaching so long that he taught the parents of many of my classmates).

There was a new principal that year, and he was the buddy buddy type, overly friendly to the point of creepy. He liked to do a "word of the day" during morning announcements. The seniors snuck in at night and actually built a brick wall, with cement and everything, in front of the door to his office, on which they spray painted the message: "The word of the day is: WALL"

So are you saying that was a reasonable prank? Requiring a replacement of every lock on the exterior of a building is pretty expensive. And cleanups aren't free.

My senior year the school spirit types thought it would be funny to swipe a bunch of mailboxes and line them up on the driveway into the school as their senior prank. It turns out that stealing mailboxes is a federal offense. Good times.
 
2014-06-05 11:11:04 AM
All we did was fill up the parking lot with large round hay bales and old junk cars.

Then on the last day there was a 6 car burnout in front of the school early in the morning. Huge cloud of white smoke went directly into the school. Place smelled like burnt tires the rest of the day.
