    I was looking back at pictures from last year. I, along with a few others in the junior class were close to the senior class. So we helped and par-taked in this. We basically made 1000's of water ballons, and we were trying to get as many students in the building to go in the parking lot. We didn't care if teachers knew, we just wanted to get as many people out there as we could. We ended up getting many people in the parking lot, and it was pretty funny. Kids were nailing teachers that they didn't like. The funny thing is, the school had already called the cops so they were close by. It lasted a good 10 minutes. And everyone was soaking wet.

    This year, I want to do something funnier, and have it done by not a lot of people. Maybe me and a few others. I don't care if i get in trouble, it just needs to be funny, and something that won't harm anyone, or cause damage.

    1000 crickets only costs $25. I could also do 2009 bouncy balls, with a couple others pitching in.

    What was yours? Or what do you suggest? And please don't suggest any of the "Get 3 animals and put the numbers 1 2 and 4 on them. :)

    We had a whole assembly going. We did this the night before. Here is just one batch.

    It involved soap and water. That is all. Good clean fun.

    It's not really an institution here in Australia. IIRC a group of us had a picnic and played tennis instead of going to our last day.

    We only really put real effort into pranking one of the history teachers at the school, who was loved by everyone and had a great sense of humor. He was known for always getting the best senior pranks and everyone knew to stop by his room on the last day of class to see that year's prank. All the students involved always cleaned it up for him, too, because he was such a good sport.

    One class emptied his room of everything (which was a big feat because his room was packed with all kinds of things) and just left a huge banner of one of his favorite sayings ("we know nothing"). Another year people did a Communist-theme (a la North Korea), where they blew up his yearbook photo to a giant, wall-sized photo, and then made hundreds (perhaps thousands...) of various-shaped photos of the same photo and plastered it over everything int the room... over posters of other people from history, over every number on his wall clock, in every book, on every map...people were finding his photo 2-3 years later in different places of the room.

    Our year we went the East/West Germany route. We built a Berlin wall out of wood and made fake barbed wire...one one side we all spray painted our names, the other was pristine, and it went across his whole room. Then we papered the Communist side of his room all in red paper -- you couldn't see anything but red -- and the other side had signs, protests, etc. It looked fantstic. One of his students has lived across the street from him for years, so we also decorated his driveway with chalk drawings (same theme), left an a "plane ticket" to Berlin on his car windshield...etc.

    Another person also bought several new giant ceiling tiles and painted a huge painting of our teacher a la Sistine Chapel -- with him as Adam and covered only by an open history book...

    We had fun with it :)

    A parked car - a large number of bricks and some mortar.

    We built a wall around the back of a teachers car so it couldn't be moved without knocking down the wall first. It had 36 hrs to set - just enough to make it a job for serious tools :)

    Three teacher's vehicles made it to the roof and every toilet in the building was filled with triple-expanding insulating foam. The school mascot was disassembled and reinstalled upside down atop the flagpole. Another team removed all the ceiling tiles from the building, and let loose a small flock of Canadian geese.

    No arrests.

    Stealing the extremely loud school siren and wiring it up beneath the auditorium stage to which I had access, hooking it up to a mains timer so it would go off during principal's assembly the next day.

    It worked extremely well. I was not at school that day but got all the reports. ;)

    I'm in year 12 at the moment so got muck-up-day (as it's called in the UK) to look forward to.

    We've had some great ones at our school though, involving chickens released in the teaching block, and a herd of (very noisy) sheep in the common lawn (which the teaching block surrounds).

    Oh and inflateable dolls filled with helium, strap-ons and (very) loose shorts, released in the dining hall with a 40ft ceiling.

    We filled the office with thousands of balloons. It was only about knee deep but it was still amazing...

    A few days later, we got two mouse balls, and only one mouse. The other ball was placed with the lid off by a wall....office staff assumed that one mouse had gotten out, and it took a while to get all of the ladies off of their desks.

    And on the last day of school, we hacked into the bell system, and played Schools Out throughout the school for the last bell of the day.

    It was a boarding school.

    We snuck out after the lights-out, stole the plates from the cafeteria and arranged them to write the class number over the main dorm lawn.

    I wish I had photos. :D

    I don't remember much of high school. But my mother tells me I brought a goat to school for something that made the papers.:confused:

    I heard rumors of staplers going missing and something about crickets but saw nothing of the sort. It was a boring senior year for me in terms of pranks.

    On the last day though we did nothing really. It's tradition to jump in the river that runs through the village, but I'm semi-proud that I was the first one in (with 300 in a year and half that heading for the river I didn't do too badly :3).

    we took all the balls in the school (big school means lots of balls) and put them down the main hall.

    We let 5 chickens loose in the high school hallways with numbered tags on their legs. We left out one number in the sequence so they would look for the last one that didn't exist.

    Sorry... I was just listing what we did.

    Not that huge of a prank, but the seniors put pads on about 75% of the lockers and scattered tampons throughout the halls last year. Real mature. Ha.

    I go to the Biggest High school in Ohio, and generally we have the Biggest pranks.
    The one for the Class of '08 was to fill the main principals office with Blow up dolls. "Blow Up Betty" to be exact;)
    There is a rumor that the principle's wife left him because of a blow up doll he had at their home. Retalliation FTW!

    Uhmmm....yeah, something involving a picture slideshow of some slutty chick from our graduating class who participated in a wet t-shirt contest during Spring Break who thought wet t-shirt meant no t-shirt, a song someone wrote and recorded about our principal who was fired for having an affair with a different student and a hidden section on the senior moments class DVD.

    And no, I wasn't involved in any of it ;)

    Oh, and about the numbered animals thing, what someone ought to do is actually do 4 animals, number them 1, 2, 3 and 4, and when they catch 1, 3 and 4, they'll say "This prank is so old. There really is no number 2" but number 2 is really still on the loose :D

    As I recall, we rounded up a bunch of realtor signs and put the school up for sale.
