Subject: School Pranks

Written By: Officer_Dibble on 03/29/03 at 11:39 a.m.

i guess most of us attended school back in the 80s so did you get up to any naughty/funny pranks with felllow pupils or teachers?

i used to have to do 100 lines most dinnertimes at primary school for being naughty but never through pranks and mostly over something that wanst my doing.

i flicked matches at a supply teavher in a german lesson once, which wasnt a good thing (totally nasty thing to do) and resulted in me being banned from a trip to germany.

my mum gets hassled quite a lot by schoolkids who tie pieces of cotton on her door knocker.

Looking back on it, I always felt bad for the substitute teachers.  If our normal teacher called in sick the same morning, the sub wouldn't have any clue what was going on.  He or she would ask us what we were studying and we'd act like we had no clue what was going on.  Then it would turn into any hour of doing nothing or just reading.

The night before our Homecoming Game, our rival school stole the Bob's Big Boy off of the restaurant & placed him in the middle of our football field.  :P

Gig Harbor High School, 1982-83 year we had an assembly with Bavarian Dancers pransing around in our Gym.  The youths wearing nothing but papar bags over their heads :o streaked the length of the Gym and exited out the back fire escape.  All HE!! broke lose after that.  The campus was pretty new and built in an undeveloped area, they had a vehicle waiting for them and were never caught.  
Damn those boys were fast.

Hot Damn Cricket - you stole my idea !!!! :)  We did that so many times.

I guess the best one I ever did - that to this day has never been revealed - even to my oldest friends !! was when I snuck into science class early and opened bottles of ammonia and hid them in various classrooms.  
During the lesson kids started fainting so they evacuated the classrooms - then they evacuated the whole school !!!!  

So we all ended up getting sent home for the rest of the day while the school was searched for whatever it was causing the problem !!!

I was the quiet sweet kid at school so I was never a suspect !!  and I never ever told a soul.

I had to take a 9th grade science when I was in 10th grade because I didn't take one in 9th. So all the kids in my class (with the exception of me) failed so it was a really easy class. I would do homework for other classes and write notes to my friends, etc. and still passed with flying colors. One day, I asked the teacher if he had something a little more challenging for me to do. He came back to me a few weeks later and sent me down to the reading room. Basically it was reading and then answering questions about what I read. Not really exciting. I got bored with that real quickly. Tthe deal was that I had to check in with the science teacher before heading down to the reading room. The science teacher was the kind who would stand at the door while all the kids came into the room. He would wave to me and then I would head down to the other room. One day, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to skip that period. I said sure but I had to do something first. We went around the corner and the teacher waved to me and then my friend and I left the building. She just looked at me with her mouth open. The reading teacher thought that I was in the science class and the science teather thought that I was in the reading class and meanwhile, I was having fun with my friends.

Well, I didn't go to school in the 80s - I was teaching at Potsdam College in (really) upstate New York - its not the end of the world, but you can see it from there - but I'll contribute anyway.  Hope its all right with you youngsters  ;D  Mostly, I just cut classes, like when my girlfriend was off and I wasn't.  Once, she was babysitting, so I called the school, pretended to be my father, and told the office that I had a note (the good old Dr's appointment) and would be out for most of the day.  After first period I appeared with the forged note.  Patty and I had a hot time while the baby napped  ;)

In my senior year I had to take phyics (first period).  Mr Verseput, who couludn't say R's was a slight, balding, middle ages "nerd".  This was a college prep course for science dumbies, and still we were all in deep trouble gradewise, but we needed to pass in order to graduate.  We had all already been accepted into college, so C- was fine.  We were desperate!  So we all recruited the most zophtic (sexyest) girl in the class for our little blackmail scheme.  She got to school early one day, went to the classroom, and found Mr V. working at his desk.  She pushed his chair back, sat down on his lap, and began stroking his balding head, telling how sexy she though he was.  The poor man, with his arms spread WAAAY out so as not to touch her, was pleading for her to stop, get up, leave him alone.  The rest of us then walked in and sat down.  She got up, winked at him, and took her seat.  We all got our C-'s, no words spoken.  ;)

Can anyone beat that  ;D

There was one time (not in my class but I heard about it) some kid stood up and yelled, "Wow, I didn't know the gum was loaded!" And everyone else in the class started singing the song from the comerical. You have to remember that comerical to really get it.

In my senior year, our school just got a pool in. The first swimmer was a duck that some student smuggled in. There is a pic of that duck in my year book.  :D

Then there was the time in Freshman science that we (two friends and I) got onto the experiment the teacher was going to run the next day - something about electricuting water.  So we managed to fill the fish tank where the electrodes were with after shave loation.  The experiment worked.  The teacher passed out from the concentrated smell - stench (never burn after shave loation).  ::)
