Whether or not you were a student at the time, there's a good chance something happened at your high school that made it the talk of the town, maybe even landed it some headlines. Tweeters have taken to the platform to share the incidents that made their high schools famous, ranging from drug busts that weren't quite drug busts to flooded cities to stolen apple desserts.
High schools make the news particularly around the time of the year when senior pranks are all the rage. There was that one student who tricked some of the staff into reading the lyrics of "All Star" by Smash Mouth and compiled all the clips together. Then there was that time the students at one school moved all the desks outside, maybe just to get some fresh air or enjoy the view. Anyone who went to my high school remembers that time the principal got arrested because he was driving a stolen motorcycle.
Or was he?
Got escorted out of the building in handcuffs and everything. It was epic.
While some jokes go too far, the best ones are always the gags that are ultimately harmless and nobody gets hurt.
That's not always the case, as Twitter just proved; and some of the stories are downright awful. But if you want a good laugh, there are plenty others that likely top the list of the most epic "incidents" and pranks of all time. Here are some of the funnier ones.
1R U High?
Let this be a lesson to any high school with the letters R and U in them. Next time, you'll know better.
2When You Are Your Own Penpal
Finding a way to blame the parents is always proper protocol.
3When You Feel Salty AF
Appreciation post for this school's dedication to insults, because verbally expressing your thoughts doesn't always suffice. RIP grass.
4Burying The Evidence
Why wouldn't you bury it in a marsh as opposed to, you know, just returning it? #CommonSense
Well, that's one way to encourage people to visit your website.
6Get High With A Little Help From My Friends
The people who organized this are either very oblivious or totally awesome. Either way, fond memories from the 420th anniversary.
7That Escalated Quickly
So many feelings. While nobody can condone cop-pummeling, the pizza-tossing sounds like a party we'd all want to be invited to.
8X-Rated School Programming
Watching movies in school has always been fun, but this takes things to a whole new level.
9The Story Behind The Burn Book
We always knew Mean Girls was really a documentary. Amber D'Alessio really did make out with a hot dog (and TBH, so have most of us, if we're being real).
10Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It
At first this sounded like the opening scene to one of the Mission Impossible movies, but then it got 100 times better, because apple crisp.
Poor teacher didn't realize what the student meant when she said the brownies were made with an all-natural flowering plant. Stick to Duncan Hines, lady.
12When You Definitely Failed Drivers Ed
Hey, it happens to all of us.*
*No it doesn't.
13Fangirling Over Adam Lambert
We all want to know the same thing here: how long did she last before security tackled her? That's kind of all that really matters.
14Please Raise Your Hand If You Have Ever Felt Personally Victimized By Regina George
You all have GOT to stop calling each other sluts and whores — wise words courtesy of Tina Fey.
15Armed (With A Broom) And Dangerous
And you thought your parents were embarrassing. Did they show up to your school with a broom? No they did not.
16That Time Someone Left The Faucet On
Anyone else low-key in disbelief that two kids pulled that off? We're not talking a flooded bathroom or janitor's closet. They flooded an entire portion of the town.
In any case, odds are you, too, have an infamous incident from your high school — in which case you should keep the party going by replying or quote-retweeting Notopoulos's original tweet.
