Pranksters Glue Doors Shut at California High School

Friday, a day before spring break, pranksters covered the locks on all the exterior gates and doors at Carlsbad High School with super-strength glue.

“A teacher who always gets there early called me on my cell phone and said, ‘Guess what?'” said Carlsbad High School principal Margaret Stanchi. “But I didn’t guess this.”

About 100 doors had been completely sealed before the first staff arrived at around 6:30 a.m. at the San Diego high school.

Custodial staff were able to quickly unseal the lock on a building with 27 classrooms. The rest of the 3000 students had to sit in the gym until their classrooms were unlocked, one by one.

The school had a survellance video but it proved useless and didn’t give any clues as to who dunnit.

Police are still investigating.

Nice prank. It must have taken a long time for the person(s) to do it though.

Washington Home Emptied After Craigslist Ad Gave the OK

A fake ad posted last weekend on Craigslist led to property being stripped off of a rental home in Tacoma, Washington.

“In the ad, it said come and take what you want. Everything is free,” Landlord Laurie Raye said.

She had cleaned out the house after evicting a tenant.

Not long after the ad appeared, neighbors saw strangers taking items away. They made off with a sink, light fixtures, the hot water heater, a vinyl window and the front door.

Raye said Craigslist told her they would need a subpoena or search warrant before they could release information about who posted the ad.

Police Detective Gretchen Ellis said: “We’ve had prostitution things happen, rental scams, fraudulent activity. In this case, it appeared the items were going to be given away, but they were not.”

I have a feeling the evicted tenant did it for revenge.

April Fool’s Day Prank Leads to Divorce

A Chinese man is divorcing his wife for pulling a prank that went too far.

Mr. Lin, of Shanghai, returned home on April 1st from a business trip to find a black object swinging in the air upon opening the front door.

He reached over and turned on the light only to discover that the black object was his wife, who had hanged herself.

The shocked man immediately called the police and the property officer. Office staff helped Lin bring the body down while they waited for the police.

“Suddenly, she sat up, started to laugh hysterically, and said this was my April Fool’s Day present,” Lin said angrily.

His wife, Han, a 26-year-old actress, played jokes on him all the time.

“I just try to surprise him everyday,” she said.

But for Lin, her fake suicide was the last straw.

“I feel as if I’m sitting on a bomb everyday. We’re getting divorced!

“I can’t stand the jokes and games anymore. She hides the dishes in the washing machine, or changes the lock on the door, so that I can only enter by giving the correct answer to some stupid questions, and so on.”

This woman sounds annoying. Whatever happened to surprising your man with sexy lingerie and the like?

Students Pull MTV Prank on Classmates

Four students at Sequoya Middle School, New York, put laxatives in donuts and served them to about 18 students and staff member after seeing a similar prank on MTV.

Many ambulances and police department were required at the scene. Some students had to be sent home, while a few ended up in the hospital.

“I don’t think it’s funny,” Superintendent Dr. Charlie Murphy told the WABC-TV.

“We had what must have been 12 police officers respond, a countless number of EMT people in the local area responded, and you’ve disrupted a whole school day. I don’t find anything funny in the situation.”

The superintendent also said disciplinary action would be taken.

What a mean prank. Don’t mess with people’s food!

Student Puts Urine in Teacher’s Coffee

An eighth grade student at Wilson Middle School thought it’d be funny to put urine in his teacher’s coffee pot.

The teacher was fortunate that the boy’s urine smelled foul and reported the smelly coffee to the principal.

A student who had overhead classmates talking about the incident also reported it to officials.

The issue was investigated and authorities were led to check the eighth-grade boy’s locker where they discovered urine.

He admitted to putting some into the teacher’s coffee and has been suspended pending a recommendation for expulsion.

“This type of student behavior will not be tolerated,” Principal DiLynn Phelps and Superintendent Marlin B. Creasy wrote in a letter to parents. “No student will be permitted to deliberately attempt to cause bodily harm to any other student, teacher or staff member.”

I can’t believe the boy was dumb enough to leave urine in his locker. I guess he had other plans for it.
