As the school year ends, there have been a number of stories about high school students performing end-of-the year pranks. In Chicago somebody put hot-sauce in the spaghetti. In Southern Californa somebody glued all the school doors shut.
Now, for the first time anywhere, I will confess to my own stupid pre-graduation prank. Somehow I figured out how to pick the lock on the display case where all the school trophies were kept. At lunchtime, I asked people if I could have their cups of canned peaches, and I used all those peaches to fill a cup-shaped trophy (like this one) full of canned peaches.
There was not a good point to it. I just thought people would get a little laugh when they saw that big trophy full of peaches and syrup, locked up behind the glass (Already looking for the cheap laugh. Now they pay me for this!).
My belated apologies to whichever school custodian had to clean this up. If it's any consolation, life paid me back in full when, as a yogurt store owner I spent many hours cleaning up these sort of "pranks" left by goofball punks like me!
