    School Prank (funny)

    High school kids sure have it all figured out!

    At a high school in Montana , a group of students played

    a prank - they let three goats loose in the school.

    But, before turning them loose, they painted numbers on the sides of the goats: 1, 2, and 4.

    School administrators spent most of the day looking for No. 3.

    Now that's funny, I don't care who you are...

    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    a few years ago a bunch of kids at one of the neighboring schools let a cow into their high school one night. the school was 5 stories tall and the next day everyone came to school to find a cow on the fifth floor. cows don't mind going up stairs but they don't like going down stairs. If I remember correctly they eventually got a crane to get it out of the building after trying for hours to coax it down the stairs, but I like the goat story better
    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that it is funny to waste the taxpayer dollars and school resources on a 'prank'. In this day and age, all school resources should be wisely monitored to make sure the children are getting the full value of the money and time allocated to their education.

    That's funny! When I was a junior in high school, the seniors let a pig loose in the school. Our senior prank, of which I was not part of!!!, was setting a bag full of crickets loose in the school. I think that it is expected that there be some kind of senior prank and as long as nobody (or animal) gets hurt, it is just good clean fun! Too much emphasis is placed on always doing the correct thing and if you don't cut loose sometimes, your head will explode!!!

    Too funny! Sometimes with all the stress these kids are under they need a release. Better a goat than a gun is all I have to say.

    This story is not actually true, if you look it up on Snopes. It's just funny because of the way people will be inclined to find the missing element of a series, if it's implied there is a series (#1, #2, #4).

    My daughter, who is a high school teacher, said they have to watch the Seniors the last week of school. She said one year they let loose tons of crickets all over the school

    "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." There is a reason for cliches' . Even if they story is not true as long as no one is harmed it would be funny. It's better than what they did at my daughters school . They duct taped a kid to the wall. When I was a kid I heard about the auto class getting together and taking apart a VW bug and putting it together again on the roof or in the principals office. Now that's funny. Heard both stories and neither was probably true but so what? It didnt' really hurt anyone.

    When I was a freshman, our principal told us not to pull a senior prank when we got to be seniors because all the good ones had been taken such as putting his VW Bug in the center courtyard as he lived across the street from the school. He said they had to take the doors off the hidges to get it back out. He also said the principal before him had everything in his office superglued to whatever it was sitting on, even his chair. But our class didn't have a senior prank because everyone was scared of the new principal

    DH who graduated in 1957, said they used to have different days, like "Weak Pants Day" (everyone would show up in strange pants) or "Weak Eyes Day" - everyone would show up with weird eyeglasses, like the ones with the eyeballs coming out on springs. He says he can still picture the teacher cracking up as he came in the room and was confronted with a class full of kids wearing goofy glasses.

    Oh, I think you must have been hearing about my senior class. The VW Bug went on the roof, we let 80 white mice loose (with numbers)... Looking back, we must have been stinkers in the eyes of administrators. On the good side, a large portion ended up as teachers, engineers, doctors, lawyers and politicians. The last two categories probably explained why we were able to graduate. (We did remove the VW, everyone collected mice all day, and most people quit screeching by second period.)
