High-School Pranks
High-school seniors superglue the locks on their teachers' doors. The teachers are not amused. In other senior prank news, piglets are released in a school the day of the senior barbeque.

I go to the school where this prank happened, and I knew the people who did it. This prank was not even funny. The Class of 2004 prank was funnier, when the seniors blocked the parking lot.

FREE THE HARRISION FIVE!!

On the night of Monday, Febraury 23, 5 students entered Harrison with the intent of commiting a well-planned, and altogether harmless prank. The "Locker zip-tie Massacre" consisted of placing zip-ties on the lockers, preventing people from opening them.

Two days later, that Wednesday, the 5 were called down to the office. Not only had they been caught by an anonymous tip, but they are suspended for the next 10 days, and have an upcoming hearing to find out whether or not they will be expelled. In the words of one of them, "We're just being punished because we managed to get into the school so easily, and they're just covering up how bad their security is." With suspension and pending expulsion, does this seem like justice to you? Dont let the school possibly ruin these peoples lives because of their own problems.

Yeah right. Injustice happens baby... especially when your pre-18. We all have a story. Shouldn't have screwed around with the school especially with today's post 9/11, post-Columbine mind-set! When I was 17 and ALLOWED to smoke by my parents, I was "paddled" 3 times and suspended for 3 days for smoking in my mom's car as she dropped us for school on a public street off of school property. The principal seen us, and punished us anyway. SHIT HAPPENS... downer

There are MUCH more important injustices to worry about before this one...

well i got a couple of things to say. First to the kids who broke into the school to do the zip tie thing.Well...first your stuipid for braking in b/c that is a major nono if your over 17 and second that is not a great prank i zip tie shit all the time at my school. Hell ive not only ziptied lockers but i have also zip tied teacher bags to there desk, chairs to tables, staplers, tape things, every thing and anything. So yea lame and im glad your getting in trouble.But for the rest of you zip ties are good if you do the right things. Also if you have trailers like i do than i tell you what i did. I got about 2 gallons of milk at the store that morning( and i say about b/c i drank some on the way to school) but any ways you then open the caps and drow them under the trailers. You can also do this with raw fish,chicken, and/or beef.You will never get cought if you show up early and there are no cams. for any good ideas send them to me and maybe we can talk about more!

For all of you who can't think up any good pranks here are some that I have seen at my school, you can let three pigs loose in your school that are numbered 1,2,and 4, or you can do what myself and some friends are gonna do this year, we are goin to paint our entire football field our rivals colors to try and start a feud back and forth with them,I really hope it works, if you have any questions let me know. Also try try driving a trctor to school its fun.

Hey, I am a senior at a really country school. theres only 900 ppl in our town and we have been trying to think of a really cool senior prank. We need on to do at night because our school is so small. Can anyone help me?
Posted by Teri  on  Wed Nov 23, 2005  at  01:36 PM
why dont you get some cement and put it over the locks and some of the windows so they will have to get new ones.
Posted by justin  in  wisconsin  on  Mon Dec 12, 2005  at  07:50 PM
u guys are retards! If you dont want to get caught, just dont tell anybody about it. It's cooler if you get away with it and it'll piss off the school even more if they dont kno who it is. I've pulled off hundreds of pranks and nobody knows it was me because I keep my mouth shut. When I graduate at the end of the year.. then I'll own up to them. It's so simple!
Posted by Ellen  on  Tue Dec 13, 2005  at  11:16 AM
Alright, so hears the deal. I am a senior at my HS and for the last three years seniors have done jack, as far as senior pranks go. So this year I Am planning on going all out. I dont want any criminal activities but some funny crap would be cool. Also if you know any good ways to get a single teacher, that would be helpful as well.
Thanks

Hey ppl, okay listen. I am a junior and me and my friends have come up with some ideas for pranks, that would work relitively well but with our school of 2000 we need something that rocks. A few ideas that we had...and feel free to use thesse are:

Greesing the stares and dropping about 200 bouncy balls down the main staircase during a passing time (6 min. long), another is (if byo have seen monty python holy grail) is putting cement filled trojan bunnies infront of every door, we can't do this because we have aobut 15 doors, but a smaller school could. the bunnys would only have to be about 4 feet. then if you want to do this prank better get fluffy fake bunnies, and put every seniors name on it and put them on the front lawn, around the bunnies, or in the schools.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS PLEASE e-mail me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Alright I have while before my senior year.. but i want myne to be all planned out.. The thing is at our school we have this place we call the fishbowl. becuase its basically a mini apitheater.. people talk about filling it with water and putting gold fish in there.. but i need smoething bigger then that. We also have a large amount of bats that roost at our school so something involving them would be funny!

ok im a senior right now graduating this year(hopefully if we dont get caught). the prank we have come up with goes a little like this...in our courtyard there are 12 green columns 3 groups each and they make a square. our idea is to make giant cocks out of whatever we can find and fill the giant dongs with cement and place them over each column(each column is about 2 1/2 feet tall). we plan on making each cock like 6 feet tall or more and painting them a flesh color. now we figure we will put tons of cement in each one cuz u know damn right all of the janitors wouldnt be able to move 12 6 foot wieners filled with cement by the time school opens at 7 a.m. and seeing how we rnt really destroying anything or vandalizing anything since u eventually can take them off the most trouble we will get into is tresspassing. write back and let me know what u think.

ok guys senior prank is comming up an weve all seen the chessy American highschool pranks in the movies but for this senior prank in Scotland i hav planned a way of locking the 2 main doors that go out onto the playing fields and setting off the fire alarms. my school has about 800 students and when they find they can't get out the school then the teachers will shit themselves and there will be mass confusion!! when the students finally get out me an my mates will be waiting with eggs 2 hit them with in the near by forrest. if that does not work then we are gonna black spraypaint the football pitch with a huge dick or write "fuck the rector"
