I have no sense of humor when it comes to wrapping cars or houses but I like a good football prank:
“A high school student who tricked football fans from a crosstown rival into holding up signs that together spelled out, “We Suck,” was suspended for the prank, students said.
Kyle Garchar, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School in suburban Columbus, said he spent about 20 hours over three days plotting the trick, which was captured on video and posted on the video-sharing Web site YouTube. He said he was inspired by a similar prank pulled by Yale students in 2004, when Harvard fans were duped into holding up cards with the same message.”
Davidson area high school administrators gave Garchar and two accomplices “three days of in-school suspension and banned [them] from extracurricular activities for a semester”:
“We weren’t expecting it to be such a severe punishment,” said Jen Trimmer, 17, one of the students involved. “We just thought it was all in good fun.”
Here’s a You Tube link if you want to see the prank for yourself.
