The Senior Prank Gone Wrong

  1. My friend told me about the worst senior prank to have ever been executed at his high school.

“So the seniors decided to do something REALLY big this year. They wanted to be different. To be remembered is the year that did THAT prank, what they believed to be the best prank you could ever have done. So you know what they did? They thought it’d be the greatest idea to start a food fight that involved the entire school. Only, they would be the only ones with the actual food, so really it was more like a food attack instead of a food fight. So what they did was, equip the entire senior class with gigantic water guns filled with condiments like ketchup, mustard, mayo, oil, vinegar, etc. On top of that, they had burgers, hot dogs, and other cheap foods they could make a large supply of quickly and easily stuffed into large trash bags. They went all over campus, pelting all the underclassmen with food and sauces, and even accidentally hit some of the teachers. At the end of what seemed to be hours, students were crying, getting pulled out of their classes by their parents, many were injured when trying to run away since there were huge crowds of students running in all directions attempting to avoid getting hit. It was a crazy day. The aftermath was awful too, our campus was covered in trash, and stains from all of the food. We live by the beach too so all of the seagulls came on campus and basically infested the place for weeks. It took so much time and money to clean everything up. The principal was so angry, they actually contemplated stopping the seniors from graduating that year. Senior pranks were also banned completely after this incident. It was a horrible idea.”

  1. Since he was actually there when this prank took place, he remembers it all very clearly. He still even has some photos and videos he took while all of this was happening. It was definitely a sad event for him, he was a sophomore when this happened, since he was so excited about taking part in senior pranks when he finally became a senior. But this prank ruined it for all of the future senior classes, unfortunately.
  2. This prank should never again be replicated, but the story can be shared as a warning as to what can happen when you take a joke or a prank too far. There certainly are limits to what you can do, and you should definitely keep this in mind if you’re deciding on trying a senior prank with your class.
  3. I actually was there as well when this happened, so I remember this pretty clearly. I was more upset by the fact that my friend actually broke her leg trying to run away from the people throwing food and condiments. It was a sad day for sure, and I’d hope that no other senior classes try something like this.
