The Hebron Scavenger Hunt

Seeing as this is the week of April Fools, I’m posting one of my most favorite pranks that I’ve done! I did this one my senior year, and I had actually almost forgot about it!

Essentially I made a gag scavenger hunt in Hebron just to see if I could get people to do it!
It had three parts, one beginning clue, middle clue and end clue, just so I could tell if someone had actually done it by seeing if multiple clues were moved.

The beginning clue was phrased as if it were one of the last clues of some larger scavenger hunt, this way our prankee would stumble upon it and would be instantly bound in mystery and keep them interested.  I hid at least 7 of these things all around Hebron! I know I hid one in the microwave at Remkees, taped under a table at Wendy’s, on a bathroom door,

taped to a phone outside of UDF,

under some candy at UDF,
CAM00192
and on a paper towel dispenser at the Crew Lounge Bar!

This clue led to the second clue, which I hid near the Hebron roundabouts in a plastic bag.

Which said:

This one was removed twice, along with the third clue, meaning people definitely took the bait! :D

The final clue, which really wasn’t much of a clue, really more of a let down for the prankee, was at the Hebron Lents branch Library (Rest In Peace!). I found the most obscure book I could, one that would probably not be checked out that often… “Collecting Pens: The Instant Expert”

This clue read “Sorry, this wasn’t part of a real scavenger hunt… I just wanted to see if anyone would actually do this… Here’s some stickers though for your effort.” And then I had power rangers stickers there, which the first person took, so  I replaced those with Obese Cat stickers (doesn’t everyone have some Obese Cat stickers laying around?).CAM00183 CAM00203

But yeah, so at least 2 people did this scavenger hunt! I really wish I was able to see them do it! I would love to have just causally struck up a conversation with them about what they were doing, acting as if I knew nothing about it, that would have been interesting!

enjoy your April fools day, Get creative and Prank on!

“Coco” the Gorilla and the Taco Bell DriveThru

Senior year of high school Jeremy R. and I realized that we still had not done anything stupid to the new Taco Bell drive thru that had just gone in down the street from our high school! So we decided to change that and of course incorporate the gorilla suit (a classic for every gag or prank!). I think Coco and me made at least 4 people’s day with that visit! The noisy little guy really wanted his nachos!

“NO COCO! BEHAVE!”

*unruly ape-like behavior ensues*

“BAD COCO! THIS IS WHY I DON’T TAKE YOU OUT IN PUBLIC!”

*coco begins throwing a tantrum*

“OKAY THAT’S IT! YOUR GOING BACK IN YOUR KENNEL WHEN WE GET HOME!”

*sad whooping gorilla noises*

(turns to drive thru attendant)
“I am so sorry, hes not usually like this. He’s usually much better! He just really needs his nachos!”

*attendant laughs and hands me food*
“Thank you!”

*Coco swats at food as I begin to pull away*

“THAT’S IT MISTER! YOUR GOING BACK TO THE ZOO!”

*more gorilla whooping*

Professor PowerPoint Recommendations

Freshman year, my EMB Intro to Broadcasting professor would sometimes “cancel class” and instead of having a live, in person lesson, he would send us links to video versions of his lessons and PowerPoints he had uploaded to Vimeo…
These “lessons” were literally just screen captures of him going through the PowerPoints while talking into a microphone… And they were anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half long! Painfully boring! (Big surprise, most of us didn’t watch them)

While I was watching one, I noticed the Vimeo page stated that the videos were over a year old, meaning that he didn’t even create them for our class, he created them for the class he taught the year before! Very lazy, but understandable I guess.

I also noticed that several of these videos had the comments enabled, so I decided to have a little fun and I created a Vimeo account named “X-Wing@Aliciousness” (yes, from Key and Peele!) and made some comments to hopefully liven up the videos for future students he assigns the videos too!

Hopefully he noticed the comments as he was posting the videos again the next year! Hah!

 

Kidnapping Edgar’s Dog

Since I was unable to post a blog last week as I was busy on a field trip in Mammoth Caves, I’m making today a triple feature! lol

One day senior year, Ashley and I went over to my bro Edgar’s house and rang the doorbell. When Edgar opened the door, we lunged for his dog Shaggy (yes, named Shaggy, not Scooby lol) and then booked it to my car. We drove shaggy over to my house and texted Ed some ransom pictures of us holding him. Then after 30 minutes or so we brought him back and acted like nothing happened.

Fun with pet-napping!

Handing Out Lemons

This is a perfect example of a fun and silly thing that can really screw with people! (and that’s what is really at the heart of a good, clean shenanigan after all!)
Me and my buddy Jeremy made shirts with the word “life” on them and then went to Kroger and bought like 9 or so lemons and then went and stood outside of the Florence mall and handed out them out! Most people didn’t really get it or thought we were trying to sell them something or didn’t just plain didn’t want them (what’s life like? Lol) but a few people who put 2 and 2 together thought it was hilarious!
Here is me with captain America and some girls! We forgot to get any other pictures! hah
