We've all been there, done that, or received it. When you hang out with certain friends long enough, there's usually a prank cooked up between you at some point in time. You might have masterminded a daring, nefarious scheme to get your own back on someone, or just to laugh at their expense, and put the aftermath of it on Facebook or Youtube. You might have participated in setting up the prank. Or you might have been the target of a prank. In which case, poor you! So, people. What pranks have you been involved in? I've only ever taken part in a few small-scale pranks, and this was usually at my first year at university, when we were living in student halls with a bunch of other people before we all moved out with friends into off-campus housing. The first one involved a rather dopey dorm-mate of ours on my birthday. He decided to wander into the kitchen to get drunk, but forgot to lock his door. Or to have his room key with him. We knew the guy was going to be wasted soon, so we decided that we may as well complicate his night further by taking every moveable furniture and object in his room and relocating them a couple of hallways away to the left. It was actually quite a task, and about five of us including myself immediately began to take everything out of his room, including his bed. We moved the lot into the second hallway to the left and realised that the hallway was spacious enough to arrange all the furniture to "recreate" the guy's room. In the hallway. We then locked his door with the key he forgot to take with him. I don't think he spoke to us again until he was properly sober. And that was at 11am the next morning! I was almost the crossfire victim of a "prank". Well, it was more like idiots being idiots. Someone decided to throw bleach around the corridor to deliberately burn the paint off people's doors. If I had opened my door at the wrong time, it would have been my face and not the paint to receive the delightful dousing. It was easily the worst prank ever conceived by a homosapian, AND it meant we all had to pay a bit for the costs of repainting the doors. Which I add, they never did! This prank was at secondary school. I wasn't part of it because this was done by sixth-formers (to Americans, sixth-formers are like erm, your most senior years at high school?), but I have to share it here. Normally in that school, the students about to graduate traditionally come up with a prank on the staff. That year, they decided to have someone sneak onto campus at the dead of night on the Sunday to spray paint an enormous, white phallus on the car park. The following day was when parents would come in for a special event or something. The staff frantically tried to cover up the big number by parking cars on top of it, but it didn't work too well. Later they decided to splash a layer of black tarmac over it, but as it dried, you could still barely see the white spray paint showing through. The headmaster was reported to have commented "mine is bigger than that" when he saw the fella.
