High School Prank

Who says today’s kids aren’t smart? Well, some of them are!

I wish I’d thought of this ...

At a high school in Montana a group of students played a prank on the school.

They let three goats loose in the school.

Before they let them go they painted numbers on the sides of the goats: 1, 2 and 4.

Local school administrators spent most of the day looking for #3.

That is so funny I would never have thought about that, But that would be something that I would do.

As long as someone else thought of it? Funny as hell though.

This actually happened at Edmond Memorial High School in Oklahoma, except the used pigs instead of goats.

Calaway said...

This happened at my High School a few years back (Cypress Creek High School, Houston, Texas). They were pigs, however, and not sheep.

The administration did spend forever trying to find that last pig. It was the most famous senior prank to ever happen at 'Creek.

How funny! You tube search the Illuminati!

Laaaaammmmeeee!!!! Judging by the date this was posted, you totally copied the idea from the pilot episode of the new 90210 series when they set 3 pigs loose in another school with team jerseys 1,2 and 4.

OMG I WOULD HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT, BUT IT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE! LOLOLOLOL

Bah, that's old as nails. Funny - but old old old. When I was a youngster we did it with piglets, nine of them, missing number three. Released in the main building, entire place was closed down all day as the animal lovers were busy trying to locate the missing piglet.

A school on Long Island did that with 3 pigs a few years ago as a high school prank

Anonymous said...

Someone did that at my school but it was two pigs numbered 1 and 3. They did it about six years ago

this is a very old prank..but usually its greased up pigs >.>

We considered doing that for our senior prank in high school only with chickens instead. Unfortunately, the owner of the chickens... erm.. chickened out (no pun intended) fearing that the chickens would be injured.

This was on 90210 the other night.

I've heard that story a dozen times from just as many sources. The first time I heard it i thought it was genius, but now i realize, even if it has happened, its a folk tale.

pretty old story
first heard it as a kid
i think it's one of those things
some1 thought of
but probably never did
and since it's such a funny story
people often tell it just like this
some kids in some highschool did it.
never a newspaper article or something

Anonymous said...

Ah, this is pretty old. Yet, It's still a classic. The only thing is that you gotta ruin some of the classes and have some teachers in on it. So when they report a room has been ruined say that the #3 was in there. With that they'll belive that there is still a #3 out there.

Anonymous said...

I've been wanting to do that for a while, but with skunks. They'd never stop looking.

Anonymous said...

A few friends of mine were joking about releasing 2 greased pigs with the numbers 1 & 3 a few years ago...


The idea is pretty old

Anonymous said...

That's an old one. Myself and a couple of friends though about doing that, with pigs instead of sheep.

The Toadman said...

My friend thought of something like this, except with two chickens, with the numbers 1 and 3 on them. Of course, living in a city, it's hard to find live chickens, so we never went through with the plan. Glad to see someone else did.

Witty!!!!!

That is my school! It's Bozeman High School in Montana. And I happen to know that it was pigs and not goats.

i have heard the same prank done with chickens instead of goats

Josh said...

somebody did that my junior year with pigs. to make it better, they recorded pig squeals on small tape recorders and put them in random lockers all over the squeals. so ever 5 min or so, you would here a squeal and see the staff go running. best off, the squeals were timed so that they would go off in a different place at different times and only squeal for like 30 seconds. y the time they chased it down, it would stop. priceless

Gonzo said...

The same thing happened 2 years ago at my school, the seniors did the same prank with pigs

Kevin B. said...

An oldie but a goodie. Typically you here of such a prank being done with greased-up pigs, though.

Anonymous said...

that prank has been around before the internet. Be it funny, it's nowhere near original. Any high school in a rural community has seen or heard of this prank.

Anonymous said...

I went to that school, but it was pigs and not goats. That was one hell of a prank.

Anonymous said...

it's been done before. when i was in high school we talked about doing it with pigs. we decided it wasn't a nice thing to do to the pigs.
so instead we crisco'd the hallways.

avidan the sane said...

This is fake. i was the one to create this. this it how it happened.

i was gonna let 3 pigs into the mall to reak havok, but my paranoia of being caught and my ADD combined made me accidentaly put 1 2 and 4. the whole 24-hour mall was closed for a week

this one has been around for ages, my dad had heard about it back in the 70s. Funny, but I'm sure they got the idea elsewhere

When did this happen, because this is exactly what they did on the premier of 90210, except with pigs. If this was a copycat prank, then they cant be credited with coming up with it.

they did that with pigs at my former HS in the 70's

kids today aren't smarter... this prank is one of the oldest in the book.

The leavers did that at my school like, 4 years ago. They got 9 chickens and numbered then 1 - 10 missing out 3.

sorry to say that "joke" appeared on the season premiere of "90210"

Would have been better if they used greased pigs instead of the goats.

That's so original though. I think that prank was pulled in one of the first episodes of the new version of Beverly Hills 90210. I think it aired about a week or two ago.

Konstanty said...

That was the senior prank at my highschool last year, only it was pigs and in florida.

Anonymous said...

Reminds me of the farmer who got so tired of someone stealing his watermelons that one day he put a sign in the field that read, "One of these watermelons is poisoned." He went to bed smugly satisfied that would solve the problem. Imagine his chagrin the next morning when he went to his field. All his watermelons were there, but the "One" on the sign had been crossed out and "Two" written above it.

um that was just on an episode of the new 90210 only it was pigs...

Mirudus said...

This has actually happened multiple times. My graduating class did the same thing (albeit with four pigs, numbered 1, 2, 3, and 5), and we heard about it down the grapevine. Story's older than the hills, but has merit.

They saw that on Beverly Hills 90210 except it was pigs...episode aired last week.

For our Senior Prank we drove around town in trucks and picked up about 80 of those white lite up lawn deer during the holidays. We assembled them as a group on the school front lawn. - it was a riot the next morning

Anonymous said...

LOL!! I'm pretty sure they are talking about my school. We did the same thing about 4 years back. We used to always let in wild animals. Once it was ducks...then deer.

Heard this before, although it was chicken and they were in the schools air duct system.

Okay, everyone mentioning that it happened on 90210, apparently don't read any other posts showing that it had been done WAY before that stupid show came on the air.

In my school we were going to use Panda Bears, but two of them died in transit. We ate the other one.

I went to the school that did it on Long Island, that was only a part of what they did, it was the year before I started going there, but it was also the end of all senior pranks at that school. It happened 5 years ago.

LOL apparently at my school.. lake forest high school someone put 4 chickens in the school and put those bird foot rings things with numbers 1 2 3 and 5 and one time they put a baby cow on the 3 floor cuz they can't go down stairs only up
i don't know if it's true that's just what my sister told me

kreestyle said...

yeahh this is really old ... my high school did this like 5years back except we used chickens ... & we let thousands of grasshoppers all over the school.

not only were people looking for the 3rd chicken, but there were janitors vacuuming up grasshoppers all over the school.

Anonymous said...

lol see what i did (at Vista Murrieta High School) was i got 3 cow and i and bunch of friends put them up stairs, cause cows can go up stairs but not down, and then i painted 1,2,4 then when i got boerd i got 2 more cows and put 3, 6 this continued until they found out it was me and some friends but they said "since this was the greastest prank this school has seen" we got awarded and talked about wat we did at our graduation

this is an urban legend prank i heard about in high school supposedly done by the school 2 blocks away from mine 5 years ago but with chickens its a pile of BS

Anonymous said...

I showed this to my grandmother who is 86 years old and she said that it was done back when she was a kid living in Utah. Yes it was pigs. 90210 may have done it on their show but they did not think it up. Urban ledgend? well not in a farming community. I think it is just a good joke and every so often it happens again because it is so funny.

Anonymous said...

90210 sucks.

Fudgeboy said...

My grandmother tattooed numbers on the backs of 90,210 girls all called Beverly, and then released them into the hills. Except there was no number 86.

Don't know what happened to all the girls. I think they formed some sort of primitive society and lived off greased pigs.

Anonymous said...

It was my high school when I was a freshman in Montana and the seniors did it for their senior prank. My class got a cow up the stairs and disabled the elevator so they couldn't get it back down again.

Syfox Sly Cobra said...

Hahahah! So doing that for year 12!

we did it with mice, except we had 6 of them. they were numbered 2,3,5,6,7,9.

This is just as true as the stories about cow tipping. In other words, they are all liars.

This is an urban legend at every high school ever. I grew up in Chicago, far enough away from farmland that the average person only saw pigs in petting zoos, and this story was still spread around like it was the gospel truth. Like the average highschooler would go to that much effort. LOL.

There is a reason it's so ubiquitous, though. It's a damned good story. : )

Anonymous said...

We did this at our school, only we couldn't find pigs or sheep. So we used turtles, only we just had one turtle, so we painted the number "1" on it. That didn't matter because when everyone came to school the turtle wasn't there. Then about 2 weeks later Ronnie Lowry's little brother Jeffy found the turtle hibernating inside his rubber boot. It wasn't very funny at all, really. Just a groggy turtle with number "1" on it. Nobody laughed or nothing.

Heh my school did the same thing with 8 chickens as a grad prank

We plan to do the same thing with cows after leading them up stairs

This reaches all the way back to a threatened prank... a la sabotage.
On Naval warships, there are a set of reduction gears that are leased for $$$$$$$ because they are too expensive for the military to buy. These reduction gears transmit the rotating force of the main engines to the screw (underwater propeller).
They get inspected quarterly in some cases and if you were to toss in a 50cent wrapper of pennies with only 49 in it, HAVOC. That one penny could ultimately destroy the gears. It must be found.

Looks like this is a common prank. This happened to my school with pigs a few years ago.

Its even better that they used goats, because goats can't go down stairs. The way the joints are formed in goats allows them to go up stairs easily but they cannot go back down the stairs.

Not very original. I was in high school 6 years ago and I wouldve paid people to stop talking about doing this. Kudos for going through with it though.
