Its been a long time since I played any good pranks on a guy. I was just remembering that back in college and high school we used to wear these jeans that were called A-Smile, along with a lot of basketball shorts. So the jeans were elasticized as were the shorts. We found it endlessly hilarious to walk up behind a guy ( that we knew) and yank, for a good public pantsing. O course turnabout was fair play. What memorable pranks do you guys recall?
I used to live in a very old house (1700) during my first years of university. One of the shared rooms was in the attic, and the guys had a sort of deck under the roof where they would sleep on. One week when one of the guys was skiing, we constructed a very neat, very professional chicken coup where his bed was supposed to be. Everything done neatly, so the chickenshit would not penetrate the wood, and it had everything from a ropewound stick to sit on, to a special place for the chickens to lay eggs. When he got back, the chickens were even laying eggs.
Another traditional prank was to hide the door of the room of the youngest somewhere in town. The thing has been everywhere. It's been in a museum, it's been hung under a bridge, it's been in a lecture room.....pretty much everything you can think of.
My favorite was vegetable oil and flour onto the windshield of their car. It wasn't destructive, but as someone who has cleaned it up, man is it a pain to get off. A close runner up was placing a half open can of herring or sardines under one of the seats. I did this to a girl and she couldn't understand the stench in her car for a good two weeks.
Video is related. I laughed my ass off.
When I was a teenager, we had dog soap in bar form. I washed the dog, one afternoon, in the bathtub, and left the bar on the side of the tub. My mother was not pleased. She fussed at me, saying, "I washed myself with that dog soap!" I should have known better, but I replied, "Well, at least you don't have fleas."
On the last few days of high-school One group put a load of bubble bath and food colouring in the cicterns, including the one that cleaned the urinal (it was one of the long, wall-type ones). It wouldn't have been that funny except a visitor came to the school that day, and went to piss in a cubicle. He stared off at one end of the gents and went into every cubicle and quickly back out again witha shocked look on his face.
This was shortly after the ban on smoking in staff-rooms. The teachers and janitors who couldn't help themselves hid in a sort-of outdoor closet which held the access for oil supply. This nthign had slated doors and it was opposite our common room, so one boy jumped out the window with a chair, dashed across and wedged the door shut. We watched the trapped staff kick the door open, knocking out one of the slates in the process, and we signed it as a sort of trophy.
I myself stole numerous small items from the school structure, did a some "furniture re-arraging" and ultimately was the only boy who got into any kind of trouble when I took it too far: I put fairy liquid in the school fish-tank, causng it to bubble through the filter and over the top, and inadvertantly poisoning most of the fish. For this I was supposed to win the plank-of-wood trophy, but I had to try and make an early escape.
In previous years, pranks included hiding a trout in the ceiling panels and blocking off all doors with sheets of paper and covering cars in rolls of clingfilm. One teacher had a very small car and my brother and a few of his friends lifted it up and stuck it in a corner so she couldn't get out. A boy whose family farmed chickens smuggled a rooster into school in his rucksack (they don;t make noise in the dark, apparently) and sneaked him into the staffroom during the start of the lunch hour. Eventually the scared office girls and teachers asked him for help removing it, since they knew he had experience with chickens. He did, and he never got any blame.
I placed saran wrap over a toilet (under the toilet seat) and pulled it tight so it was clear. My friend sat down to take a crap and pissed, resulting in awesome, close ranged splash-back. Classic.
