A few friends and I want to get together a bunch of people who would all bring inkwells and quills to school, just for one day. And use them in every class.

Any idea where one might be able to obtain inkwells and quills?

Since I'm in 7th grade, some friends and I have been discussing a prank to pull at the end of 8th grade. We couldn't do anything destructive, as my school just spend tons of money on renovations. Some ideas (some came from here) are:
-Filling a hallway or office with balloons
-Building a multi-layered wall out of cardboard boxes and blocking a hallway
-Putting a bunch of half-filled paper or plastic cups on the floor
-Climbing on the roof and throwing bouncy balls or water balloons to the park across the street (it's not really a street, more like part of the parking lot)
-Taking thousands of plastic forks and poking them into the grass to spell out "2011 rocks," or something along those lines
-Rickrolling the school through the announcements, talent show, or at "graduation"
-Hiding Annoy-a-Trons or alarm clocks above the foam ceiling tiles
-Have the whole grade burst into song at a specific time
Any more ideas?

If your school is like mine, they use HP Laserjet printers (the big ones, not the small ones). Well, you can change the message on the LCD display of any of the HP printers using PJL (printer job language). See http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/networkprinterhacking and http://downloads.xes.com/AccXES_Family/manuals/9_0/sysinfo/english/9.1_Customer_HP-PJL_specification.pdf. So, if you have access to a computer on the school's network, some programming skills, and the IP addresses of some HP printers, you could really have some fun. Also, if you can see a printer while messing with it you could mess with people who print to it("I see you, Evan!"). Just a thought...

Myself and a friend have Novii Remote Control 4 installed on our PDAs.

Projectors are fun to toy with, especially when you mess with the teacher's head by zooming in and freezing the picture and such.

Most of the pranks being posted over the last few pages seem to be the pranks of imbeciles and douchenozzles. Stop it. Please. Seriously, paint bombs? Caltrops? Fucking idiots.

Hang on, sometimes breaking into the school is necessary to pull a truly epic prank.
As long as you take/break nothing and lock up after yourself I personally have no problem with it.

In the ninja prank, the posters were cool.

The spoiled milk in the ceiling and blocking the hall/door with desks? "Imbeciles and douchenozzles."

Sometimes breaking into the school for pranks is good, it really depends on the prank.

I see two huge differences between caltrops/paint bombs and breaking in to the school to pull a prank.
1) Breaking into the school shouldn't result in any damage to anything (if its done by idiots who break things, then this doesn't apply)
2) Most really good pranks need at least a little bit of setup time without any observation. Its really hard to get that time in without breaking into the school.

Of course, its still illegal, but it isn't douchefuckery of the magnitude of strewing caltrops around (seriously, WTF?) or using paint bombs.

I bet some of Improv Everywhere's missions might make for good, harmless pranks. There's a YouTube video of high school seniors who did that "freeze in place for 5 minutes" thing in a school hallway. Disrupted the class schedule for a bit, but noone was hurt. :)

best not on purpose prank, a kid hooked his guitar to the speakers in the cafeteria and started a jam session without realizing that it was broadcast across the whole school. FYI I just know about this by word of mouth but man I wish I could have been there

Getting a band together and jamming during school would be a pretty fun prank.

I came up with this one about a week ago, and I'm pretty happy about it.

We get 4 freshmen to dress up in hobbit clothing, and then all of the seniors (who want to participate) and maybe some others will dress up like characters from Lord of the Rings. Then we do a reenactment of the trilogy throughout school, with the breaking of the Fellowship right before first bell, Helm's Deep during lunch, and getting to Mt. Doom right after school. During classes we would have a lot of fun with this and role-play and stuff.

Oooh and maybe get one of the teachers (one with a beard) to play Gandalf. That would be cool as well.

Probably not actually going to happen. But it would be pretty rad if it did.

I would order a load of pillows(or balloons), give the schools address (or somewhere near), then hike them into school and put them around the place (in corridors, not in stair cases or areas they could be very dangerous).

At my high school, they play clips of songs during the football game, even though we in marching band are there playing whole songs during the game. They play clips right over us while we're playing, and always screw up trying to introduce us during halftime. So, a few of us have the idea to either insert a CD with 'Never Gonna Give You Up' into the rotation, or otherwise teach the band to play it, and rickroll the whole damn football game.

JELL-O. Fill them with Jell-O

1) Make Jello
2) In liquid form, pour into balloons. From a 2-liter bottle.
3) Balloons in fridge.

Wouldn't they just bounce around then? Hmm.. could you pop a jell-o balloon just by throwing it..?

It's not really a prank, but my friends and I are keeping all of our paper from this year and next in math, and are going to build a paper mache sculpture of our teacher out of it, and leave it behind the podium he teaches from really early one morning. He is the best god damn teacher ever, and he deserves a statue.

Before graduating from high school, I always wanted to hijack the intercom system and quote from Beavis and Butt-Head: Do America.

Butt-Head: Uh, attention! attention! We're looking for the chick with big boobs!
Beavis: Yeah! Heh heh! Big boobs!

Funny because a) probably wouldn't be hard to do, cause I was so straight-laced and well behaved, and b) would really freak the principal out, especially since it was a french catholic school.


Another good prank that actually DID get done at our school: the tech teacher used PC-Anywhere to hijack computers when we were doing research online. Suddenly the mouse would go to the URL line and he'd type in "Help! I'm trapped in your computer!" And when everyone would go and look at the screen, he'd write "Get back to work."

That. Is. Awesome.

Funny, epic, and even honoring an awesome teacher rather than doing something stupid. I like it.

Well, these guys decided to guess the password to the school system's server and change a bunch of passwords and whatnot. No harm to teachers or students, plenty of annoyance and confusion to admins.

Then this other kids put porn on every computer. Especially bad in a middle school. . . .


I'm trying to think of something epic. Maybe even a "freshmen-strike-back" thing. Not too dastdardly, but enough to get some lulz. :D

Our school has two huge domed skylights, and an entire hallway with a glass ceiling. My plan is to take tarps up to the roof and block off all the windows.

A few years back, one of the leavers years released three pigs into their school. One was labelled with a 1, another with a 2, and a third with a 4.
The entire day was spent looking for a pig that didn't exist.
(The pigs were unharmed and relatively happy, as far as I know.)
