Car Wrapped Around Flag Pole
Students at Fruita Monument High School in Colorado welded an Eagle hatchback around the school's flag pole as a senior prank. It took them an hour and 15 minutes of welding to do it. Now this is more like what a prank should be... not like that garden-planting prank from a few weeks ago. [KITV]

I concur. This is very much in the true and glorious spirit of all that is good and prank.

And this is one I would say deserves the adjective "elaborate"!

They probably saw the crappy traffic island garden and said "Hey, we can top that. Bill, get some welding equipment, I have an idea. Bring your car."

Awesome prank and hats off to the headmaster it has to be said. He's been incredibly cool about it in my opinion, offering to let it remain for the year, no punishment and establishing the guidelines (encouraging!) future pranks. Top man!
