Senior pranks

It's that time of year again when high school seniors everywhere just wanna have some fun. And sometimes they get in trouble, big time. By the end of my own senior year of high school, I was way too busy to be involved in any pranks. And, I knew better, having pulled a really ugly prank a few years earlier at the behest of someone else.

I do recall one incident though. It was winter and the ground was covered with about four feet of snow. I was in swimming class - strangely, the only PE class back then where boys and girls weren't separated. One boy asked me if I would go to the outside door and when I saw him coming, open the door so he wouldn't have to stop. I had no idea what he was up to, if anything, but I obliged. I actually heard him before I saw him. He was whooping and hollering as he came running toward me wearing only his black boots. I flung the door open and gawked as he streaked from the pool building through the snow to the main school building. Oh, man! Those were the days.

More senior pranks:

Waltham, Mass. : Two Mensa students apparently left their brains at home one day. They spray painted a penis and a threat on the school wall. Now they're facing 20 years in prison.

Knoxville, Tennessee: The prankster pays for hurting someones feelings and school officials are less bothered by senior pranks when they dont cost money to fix.

Somewhere outside Memphis: Nineteen students get suspended for gunking up the school hallways with baby oil and ketchup.

McCook, Nebraska: Senior girl parks her car in the school hallway. No tickets issued.

OFallon, Illinois: Six rockin farm kids really know how to pull a prank. They drove their tractors to school. Totally wholesome.

Richland, PA: Two senior guys let the air of the school bus tires.

Peoria, IL: Major mayhem ensues when an unknown substance suspected to be pepper spray was released into the air. Thirty-two students were taken to the hospital. Senior pranksterism suspected.

Ames, Iowa: Chicken severely injured in high school hallway; had to be rushed for medical care.

Tipp City, Ohio: Kids empty lockers out into the hallways. Penalty: Jail time and fines.

Oxford, Ohio: In a strange reversal of fortune, someone returned the high schools bell that had been taken two weeks before.

You should have not opened the door at the last second. He would have run smack-dab into the door, a la "Lucy pulling the football out from under Charlie Brown." It would have been classic...Classic, I say!

some seniors superglued all the locks into the school, the night before exams :)

we got three pigs, painted 1, 2, and 4 on them and let them lose during the day. All day they were looking for pig 3, it was hilarious
