Laser Day

One evening freshman year, I decided that our hallway was just too boring as it was. Something had to be done to spice it up, and thus laser day was upon us!
My hall-mates and I strung up some red yarn on command hooks throughout the hallway and then became secret agents for the rest of the day!
Check out this awesome video I made with my GoPro!

It was fun being secret agents, until a cranky RA ripped it down saying it was a “fire hazard”, which is somewhat reasonable, although we purposefully rigged it up to be instantly released if you knocked into any part of it. Its funny that she brought up fire hazards, considering the dorm building was violating fire code by locking our courtyard door supposedly… And not stopping my neighbor from smoking pot in his room with his smoke detector covered up… and not doing anything about the same neighbor playing with an “Axe spray/lighter flame thrower” in his room… Yes, that happened. Scary.  Anyways.

Lasers!

Your New Background

I’ve been doing this for years! When someone leaves their user account logged in on a school computer, I change their background to this picture of an obese horse and I re-name it as NowYouWillAlwaysRememberToLogOut.jpg and then log them out.

I’ve never seen anyone leave a computer logged in with an obese horse background, so clearly its pretty effective.

And one time last year I changed a background of a logged in computer and upon logging out I realized that it was ME who had left the computer logged in… I’m a smarty pants!

The New Faces of Callahan

Outside of one of the Sorority hallways at Callahan there was a poster board featuring the “New Faces This Fall!” This poster board only featured sorority girls, even though its made by the RAs… Everyone knows Sorority girls are the best prankees! Basically it was just askin’ for a prankin’.
One day I found this old photo of a teddy bear holding a sign and decided it would fit in well here. It stayed up until the end of the semester!

Also, bonus prank! I noticed yesterday that my additional notes of Hall Director expectations are still up in the Callahan classroom! its been months since I added them! They must really appreciate the brainstorming

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:
CAM00185 good
This one was removed twice, along with the third clue, meaning people definitely took the bait! :D
CAM00198

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!

 

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!

The Dart Gun Drive-By

Armed with several Nerf automatics and enough foam to fill a small couch, Me, Beans and Jeremy put the squeeze on a few local businesses! We Darted up McDonald’s and the Kroger parking lot, not one of our cart-pushing high school friends were spared!….

And they were nice enough to help us pick up the darts afterwords! lol :)

The Hotel Room Heist Hijinks

This is just a classic case of hijinks and being in just the right place at just the right time!

We were at the Kentucky Junior Classical League annual Latin convention on a school trip with our Latin club. The rules for the rooms were “no leaving rooms after midnight” or something. So of course, my friends who were in the room connected to ours decided to sneak out the window (we were on the first floor) to our neighbor’s room to hang out, leaving their windows open so they could return. Since they were quite afraid of getting in trouble, we of course decided to play to those fears and mess with them!

After they left, Chas W. and I went into their room and took EVERYTHING we could out and piled it all into their bathroom with the bathroom door closed and window left gaping open. We succeeded in truly making it appear as though the room had been ransacked by window-entering crooks!

When they returned an hour or two later, we positioned ourselves to listen as they climbed in the window and began freaking out about the empty room before them! They were in almost complete panic when they busted into our room to tell us that they had been robbed just moments before also poking their heads into the bathroom to discover their belongings were still there.

They were good sports about it, and so were we, as we help them put everything back. I think in the end Chas and I had the most fun that night!

That picture, taken by Chas W (all credit is due!) is the lift-able contents of their hotel room completely condensed into just their bathroom! Fun!

The “Mariachi-Gram”

I really enjoyed this one! Basically, one day my senior year, at the end of my 2nd period math class, I convinced my teacher to let me out of class early, and then I went and met up with my sneaky bro Alex Beans! We quickly got dressed up like a Mariachi band and then proceeded to interrupt other classes by walking into unsuspecting classrooms and stating “this is a mariachi-gram from the Spanish department!” and then playing some trumpet and guitar for them and singing “Taco Nacho Burrito! Uno Dos Tres! Feliz Navidad! Other Spanish words!”

Then we would run out and into another room, and another, and another!

The whole time nobody stopped us! An administrator even saw us, but it was as if they thought what we were doing was so odd, it had to have been a sanctioned thing… because who would do that?

Me and Beans… that’s who would do that!
