A senior prank at a high school in Texas that began with placing plastic forks in a football field went very wrong for 40 students — half the graduating class — who found themselves suspended with just days to go before graduation.
The students at Comfort High School had intended to just leave behind the forks, but some of them took the prank idea further and did some unofficial rearrangements inside the closed school. (Including wrapping some items in plastic film.)
"You're looking at your Top 10, you're looking at your valedictorian, your salutatorian and you're looking at your honor society kids," Bruce Lott, whose son is class salutatorian, told TV station KIRO. "And this was, you know, a harmless prank that they were going to do just kind of as a goodbye, you know, put a fork in us kind of a deal."
School authorities didn't appreciate the intrusion or redecorating, and suspended all of the students involved in the prank, not just those who entered the school.
Let's hope no one tries to recycle these forks into a future prank. They may be sorry.
