High School Pranks

Postby blind visionary » Mon Oct 01, 2007 10:55 pm UTC

Me and my friends will be graduating from high school this year, and are trying to plan some cool, harmless pranks. We've got a few small things we've thought of, but nothing major, especially since the administration can be hard asses. For instance, our principal is retiring after this year and is a short Irish man, so we're going to fill his office with boxes of lucky charms.

Are there any pranks you pulled in high school, wish you pulled, plan to pull?

I wish I did the pig thing where you release 3 pigs onto campus but you label them. The first pig has a number one painted on it, the second pig has a number two painted on it, and the third pig has a number four.

The other thing I wanted to do was secretly plant bamboo all over the place. That stuff grows really really thick roots and it'd be interesting to see how well it grew/ how hard it would be to get rid of the stuff. ASIAN POWER!

Oh and I always entertained the thought of just eating everyone but that's bad taste (cuz they're all fat).

My friends and I bred crickets for about a month, until we had a plethora of cages full of them. About a month before school ended we let them all go in the tunnel system below our school. By the last day of the semester there was not a room in the building that you could not hear them in.
I'd love to have your cake and eat it too.

A good one that people did a few years ago at my high school, was that they acquired the official school stationary, and printed up letters about how the school was going to distribute condoms at Prom. And mailed them to everybody.


One issue is that schools often frown upon this sort of behavior. They may feel that proper retribution is that you don't get a diploma. So make sure you don't get caught, and don't do anything too illegal.

Me and my friends had plans to use really good bubble-stuff to coat all the sinks in the buildings --try to wash your hands and get caught in a BUBBLESPLOSIAN!

We settled for just joining the congo line cum yelling mass as it ran through the school. Which was awesome.

Yeah... I go to a Catholic High School, so out of all the possibly bad things for me to do, this might actually be the worst. It sounds awesome though.

Well this is not a high school prank, but it's the closest thing to a senior prank my school did. You see, our government classes hold a mock election in order to teach how the election process in America works. The class splits into three groups, two political parties and one media group. The political parties try to get their members elected by getting classmates who are not in the class to vote for them as well as release platforms, give speeches, make advertisements, etc. The two political groups must also make their own party name instead of adopting one. The group who got the most votes, got bonus points.

Now as one can imagine, not many students vote for these useless elections. So in order to get votes, one group decided to make a colbertesqe party called "Conservative Nation" which took none of this seriously. I posted their platforms bellow and keep in mind two things:
1) This was at a Christian school
2) They actually turned this in for a grade


onservative Nation is a political party devoted to conservative values and Christian ideals. We battle hippies in a raging culture war and attempt to establish some sort of order to America as it combats gays, liberals, treehuggers, pacifists, and other enemies of jesus that modern republicans have grown soft on. Below we have our platform of ideas that represent our party's ideals. Please take time to read them and agree.

GAY MARRIAGE
“God Made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve”

The Conservative Nation holds a strong belief in this particular issue, as it is one of the most important issues facing America. Our nation is facing a homosexual epidemic. Studies show that by the year 2012, 35% of high-school students will be homosexual. Merely being exposed to this type of society is enough to convert our perfectly heterosexual children from turning from their straight, Christian backgrounds into the promiscuous, flamboyant society of deviant atheistic hedonists. Our plan is to pass a national amendment that will deal with several factors in the rampant homosexual epidemic. The amendment will include a ban on homosexual marriage, sodomy, gay television networks and flag burning, a well-known activity for young gay couples. We at the Conservative nation are tired of seeing gay programming, literature, media and of course theatre.


ABORTION/CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
“We kill convicts, not babies”

Obviously we can’t talk about abortion without talking about capital punishment. These issues are one in the same. These pregnant women need to be stopped in the beginning. First its killing fetuses, what next infants? Then larger children and soon they’ll be killing full-grown adults. We must prevent these women’s desire to kill in the early stages. If we can get them through pregnancy, we can turn them into healthy soccer moms and channel their murderous instincts into healthy activities like cooking and PTA meetings. Many may say that these promiscuous women are a burden to society, but we believe with proper influence these women have it in them to be great mothers as well as obedient wives. Capital punishment is the glue that holds our society from falling into utter chaos. If we didn’t have capital punishment, the rate of homicides in America would skyrocket. If people knew that they could murder someone and live in a comfortable room paid for by the US government for the rest of there lives they would do it everyday. Giving someone a life sentence in a federal penitentiary is like sending them to sleep-away camp. Not to mention it’s a burden on taxpayers. Plus if we don’t kill them we run the risk of experiencing complete embarrassment if later they are proven innocent through new evidence like DNA samples. Again proving a burden to taxpayers who have to pay for the lawsuits against the US government for wrongful conviction. If the federal government would simply mandate expedient capital punishment for all felonies we would never have to deal with this again.




PRESCRIPTION DRUG BENEFITS FOR THE ELDERLY
“When people get old they die; the Conservative Nation isn’t as pompous as to fight Mother Nature”

Prolonging the inevitable is a game played by liberals who don’t want to see Granny Alzheimers bite the dust. She doesn’t remember your name anyways, Cheech, let her go, because if Jesus wants her, by god, he’s taken her. Thou shall not defiath the lord or thou shall burneth in hell. That’s in the bible. Plus socialized medicine is for goofy Speedo-wearing European communists who don’t mind wasting money. Americans either pay for their own drugs or they die with dignity.


WAR IN IRAQ
“Leave it alone; We’re fighting terrorism”

The press has made a mess in Iraq. That rhymes so you know its true. The press besides literally standing in the way of our troops sent by an honest, though too soft, president, have weakened our troops morale with their presentation of “facts”, a recognized means of evil-doers. Their devotion to “facts” has led their betrayal of the American people. We need to escalate the number of troops in Iraq and get this job done right. And to all the cynics of the government set up in Iraq, remember Thomas Paine’s words, “That Government is best, that governs least.” Looks like signs of progress to the Conservative Nation.

IMMIGRATION REFORM
“America was built by immigrants. Key word: “built”, past tense. Jobs done so get out”

Illegal immigration is the second largest threat to the American way of life, behind rampant homosexuality. America has learned all it needs to know from foreign nations and cultures. America was once young and lacking in substance and culture, but that’s over. America has an identity now, and that identity is the Conservative Nation. The melting pot is done cookin’ and its ready to be served to the American people. All immigrants are doing now is taking American jobs. Were building a wall, a moat, and a massive force of specialized soldiers trained to protect our borders; all paid for by cuts in welfare programs.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
“Apology made, Racism over”

The Conservative Nation is colorblind. America under this party’s leadership will see no race or ethnicity, but instead only see American and Non-American. The Conservative Nation will not be a party of ignorant racists, but instead a party of men and women ignorant of race, because the best way to fight ignorance is with ignorance. Therefore no one will be given special benefits because they feel discriminated against, because it will be impossible for the government to tell to tell what race people are

SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM
“The only security Americans need is security from hippies like FDR”

Conservative Nation calls it like they see it, and what they see here is deceit. The program might as well be called Socialist Security, a program of which our founding fathers would surely have nothing to do. Maybe this program worked in the thirties when America was young, but now its time to correct our mistakes and eliminate all forms of social security, no longer prolonging the weight felt by Americans. The hippies are not only trying to beat this dead horse, they’re trying to ride it, which is a most disturbing image to be sure, but definitely effective.

IRAN/KOREA’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM
Atom Bomb Copyright 1945, “Hands off, Ahkmed and Ling-Ling”

Nuclear weapons originated in America and it is going to stay that way. We don’t try to pick rice so stop overstepping your bounds. But in all honesty, The Conservative Nation is not concerned; there hasn’t been a functional Korean product with the exception of a Happy Meal toy since…. Well, actually, there has never been a functional Korean Product besides the Happy Meal toy. And Iran can attempt to construct a nuclear weapon all they want. So long as they know that as soon as they do they will receive a first person look at the proper construction of a nuclear weapon, courtesy of President Aiken. The Conservative Nation is not shy about its pursuit of Iran’s rich oil deposits and will readily make use of any opportunities to exploit that country’s natural resources.


In addition to this, they also made posters stating "Conservative Nation: It's who Jesus/Abe/Stephen Colbert would vote for" as well as an ad on Youtube claiming that the other group was the anti-christ and that the election would determine the fate of the world. After seeing the ad, the teacher was quoted to say "That was awesome, but I still have to take points off for mudslinging." Needless to say they won the vote by a landslide having 80% of the vote and every demographic with the exception of the African-American community.

A few of the seniors in my class (not me) drew a giant penis on the lacrosse field in that field paint that doesn't go away. I *really* wish I'd seen the headmaster's face when he noticed it, especially considering that field was directly in line with the view from his kitchen.

I had the idea of freezing fake blood in ice cube trays, then putting the frozen blood cubes in the ceiling (our school has those removable foam ceiling tiles) so that it would seep out and drip all over the place. I'm not a senior yet, so I haven't had a chance to even think about trying it. Yet.

The planned prank for my group of friends is this;

I know the code to get to the all-call announcements using any phone in the school network. We're going to plug a cordless phone base into the school network using an unused classroom or a sympathetic teacher. Then, we'll make a call from the bathroom, turn on the announcement, and RickRoll the entire school.

It's going to be SWEET.

Yeah... I go to a Catholic High School, so out of all the possibly bad things for me to do, this might actually be the worst. It sounds awesome though.

Before I was a student, my Catholic girls school's senior class put bras around the campus with accompanying signs/notes: "we're bustin' out of here" .. although it's really more suited to an all girls school.

I LOVE the bubbles in the faucet idea. It would be hard to get caught, and it's not really harmful to anyone. If you could arrange for a huge group of people (entire class, individual period/class/section-thing) to all do some kind of weird behavior, that would also be really cool. Like have everyone speak in words that don't have the letter "d" or something .... or something more attainable. *shrug* Also not "illegal," just annoying, and it would be hilarious.

I did three pranks when I was in high school, and only got caught for 1.

There were TVs in every classroom for some cheesy news show for students. These were the same brand as my TV at home. The first month of my freshman year, I brought my home remote in and messed with the TVs all day. One teacher dug out her old pointer to shut the TV off manually, so I'd shut it off just before she reached the button. After a while, she unplugged it. One class had a substitute, who probably just figured our TVs were messed up. I was fine until 5th period, when the teacher went to the next room to see if their TV was doing the same thing, and some students from 3rd period in there ratted me out.

In winter, when there was about 2 feet of snow on the football field, my cousin and I spelled out FUCK OFF in giant letters by stomping the snow down. I stomped down most of the snow, and he followed me, smoothing out the edges to make it look nice. The field is on the bottom of a small hill, the school at the top, so it was easily visible from that side of the school. This idea was on the spur of the moment as the snow wasn't sticky enough for our original plan, building a giant snow penis. This actually worked out better, since it was harder to remove.

Finally, one Saturday night, my friend and I went around putting crazy glue in all the locks. Apparently, there was ameeting Sunday, so they noticed in time to melt the glue before classes on Monday morning. My friend and I walked into school kind of confused.

It's tradition for seniors at my old school to remove the first letters of every word in the big school sign, so it reads "rapevine igh chool."

That's kind of lame, though. You could try something xkcd-esque such as playpen balls.

The year before mine got seriously organised. They formed a "Revolutionary Army", with all of them wearing camo and helmets, and carrying plastic machine gun water pistols. They held a morning party, in a nearby park, tipped off the media, and then marched in on the school just after starting time, with a couple of journalists snapping photos as they "took over" the school and held us all hostage. Some of the teachers tried to fight back, but were taken out with water-bomb grenades. Once they had the school, they held a big flag raising ceremony with a flag for their new regime, then buggered off to continue drinking. They managed to get a phone interview with a radio station and some photos in the local paper about it too.

It was so awesome that when my year finished up, the school arranged a free all day beach trip just to make sure we wouldn't be around to try and top it. :-)


The mid-80's were a quieter time, I wouldn't like to see that tried now.

Me and my friends attempted to go on the school roof and add the words "For Sale" right next to the school name. But it was raining and when we got on top we could have sworn we heard a siren, so we ran. XD. All this the day before finals.

My school has assembled a car to get onto the second story of the buildings.
The class of '05 had the genius idea of burning "05" into one of the fields.

Most epic one our school has pulled off was gluing all of the locks. Superglue, or what have you. Then we have this one large gathering area in one part of school, and the seniors filled it with porn. All of the teachers went around picking up the porn, so they were late getting to their classrooms, which they found where locked and glued.

Also, not necessarily having to do with high school, but something I'd like to do someday:

If you have some big friends, move cars in a parking lot. With eight of us, in a gravel parking lot, we were able to drag and "stack" the cars to within a few inches of eachother. We had one guy penned in for three hours :) With teachers cars.

We had some pretty epic ones.

Among them, a Board of Ed F-550 maintenance truck made its way onto the frickin' roof - 4 stories up.
See, we're a very rural campus in a very, very, very large school system. Second largest population-wise in the country, actually. The Board of Ed operates a MASSIVE fleet of vehicles, including buses, trucks, vans, etc. Sometimes the maintenance fleet would "lose" a vehicle for awhile. Someone would park it, and ride back in another truck intending to complete a task the next day, but instead end up somewhere else entirely and assume someone else would bring the truck back. Sometimes, the truck wouldn't cycle back for MONTHS. Such was the case of this particular truck. It was left parked close to the Auto Shop. It was COMPLETELY disassembled, hand-transported up ladders and through hallways and access ramps to the top of the highest point on the building, and reassembled.

During the week that the thing was being disassembled and moved, nobody ever seemed to notice the pulley systems that they rigged to lift the larger parts. Come D-Day, they just got in the truck, moved it close enough to an edge to be seen, taped down the horn in the cab, locked the keys inside, and RAN.

It was 2 hours before someone brought a master key up to get into the truck and stop the horn. It was 2 more DAYS before they got a monster crane and pulled the thing off the roof.

LOL. That made my day.


My school prank had a lot of variety. It involved putting a chicken on one of the roofs, stringing thick yarn across the quad, and getting a hold of a master key and switching all the locks on the lockers. And probably a few more things I'm forgetting but they were of the same nature. Not as awesome as some of yours, but we had a small graduating class (160-ish). One thing I remember from previous years is taking all the lunch tables and making a 2 story pyramid out of them. Then covering it with toilet paper and streamers.

I also did something much smaller on my own- sending a series of messages to every computer in the district (I think!) using the net send command and a batch file. I used the * operator wherever possible :D.

i agree.
it should always involve a cow whenever possible.

things we did with cows...
1) put a cow on the stair landing between the first and second floors...cows do not have dpeth perception and REALLY don't like going down stairs. Up is not such a big deal.
2)created a fake school parking sticker, pasted the sticker on the cow's rump, and "parked" the now faculty-lot-legal cow in the principal's parking space.

ah, good times.

the year before us put mickey mouse on the clock face of the clock tower so that arms were the hands of the clock.
my group of friends changed the hour and half hour sounder for the clock to "Hell's Bells". It lasted a long time before someone that cared noticed.

I would suggest something amusing and non-destructive...like hooking up a working comode on the roof of one of the buildings...

Our principal looked exactly like Willem Dafoe, so we took a picture of him and pasted the head on to a picture of the Green Goblin on his hover board from the original Spider-Man, and posted it on some walls. They were gone the next day though. =(

Some friends of mine wanted to fill the swimming pool with rubber ducks. They never did, though. A shame, it would've made a good prank. The problem, I believe, is that they thought of it too close to graduation to have time to obtain enough ducks.

Well, this isn't a HS prank, but it's applicable:

Yes. The senior marching band members "foiled" our band director's office.

Also, they used leftovers to completely cover the tower she uses to get up high and see the formations. Pretty impressive I think.

In the particular branch of Cal State LA that I am part of, something similar was done with saran wrap for April Fool's Day two years ago. Everything was also covered in sticky notes labelling it UNDER the saran wrap.
Serious? What's that?

The foiling and the truck on the roof go beyond all forms of awesome known to man. The best prank that ever happened here was someone in a bear suit running through assembly. LAAAAAAAME.
