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,
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.
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?).
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!
