Top 10 Best School Pranks

Ah, the hallowed halls of academia. A place where young minds gather to learn and grow, to engage with world-changing ideas, to conduct ground-breaking experiments, and to... glue quarters to the floor? Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, to the grand compendium of mirth and mischief - the unofficial 'Best School Pranks' leaderboard!

Now, let's get this straight - we're not endorsing or encouraging any form of tomfoolery, skulduggery, or shenanigans. We're merely historians, diligently documenting the hilarity of the past. This is a place of learning, after all. We wouldn't want to sully our prestigious reputation with such juvenile behavior, now would we? (Note: Please read the previous sentence in your best "serious adult" voice for full effect).

So, what exactly are the best school pranks? Well, dear reader, that's where you come in. With your help, we've compiled a list of some of the most notorious pranks ever pulled in the hallowed halls of education.

We're not talking about the garden-variety pranks here, oh no. These aren't your run-of-the-mill "jump-scares behind a corner" or "plastic spiders in the teacher's desk" type of pranks. These pranks are the stuff of legend, the kind of pranks that have students and teachers alike recounting the tale for generations. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. These are the pranks that make it into school lore, the ones that students whisper about in hushed tones, always with a glint of admiration in their eyes.
The Top Ten
1 Glue a quarter to the floor

Yeah, do it somewhere away from you but also where you can get a good view and watch the reaction.

This would be hilarious! You could also do this at home to a younger sibling or cousin.

My #1 tip for this is not to do it by your locker/seat. Also, get strong glue.

2 Set up a "toilet bounce"

Put clear wrap under the toilet seat, and you have made yourself a toilet backfire. Whenever someone goes, it will come right back at them.

3 Make a "butt sticker"

Get a piece of paper and glue it on one side. Write things like "Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle" or "Can't touch this" on the other side. Find a chair and make sure the paper is the same color as the chair. Put it face down with the glue sticking up.

If you're lucky and the person doesn't notice it, it will stick to their butt. For the rest of the day, they will have it stuck there. If you want to get revenge on someone that was mean to you or is a jerk, use super glue. Otherwise, use regular glue.

Laugh out loud, whoever thought of this idea! I never thought of the glue on butt, but I did see and do the "kick me" sticky note or paper with tape to put on people's backs. When you pat it and pretend to say "good job"...

4 Glue a triangle on the boy on the boys bathroom door

I have experienced a boy walking into the girls' washroom before. The Grade 1 boy (I know, right?) did number two and didn't flush the potty. I was so freaked out that I ran out. That was way back in elementary school, though. I can't believe I still remember it. Laugh out loud.

By the way, no, I did not peek at the boy do his business. I could hear the waste dropping into the toilet water. Yuck!

Glue a triangle on the boy on the boys' bathroom door to make it look like a girl. Make sure it is the same color and doesn't say Boys below.

5 Put glue in hand sanitizer

I brought two packs of super glue and put olive oil in it also. The teacher used it and had greasy hands that were stuck together! Best one yet.

Try superglue... Just hope they don't try to force their hands apart.

Put glue in the class hand sanitizer and put the victim in a sticky situation.

6 Steal the toilet paper

Take all the toilet paper out of the stalls and put it in the trash. Make sure to keep a roll in your backpack or bring one from home.

7 Sneak a skunk into school
8 Grease the floors

Once when I was in high school, while I was changing in the locker rooms after gym class, a janitor greased the entire gym floor. I didn't know about it and ended up finding out the hard way. I kept falling every time I stood up. I ended up scooting on my butt to exit the gym.

Just watch everyone slipping and sliding all over the floor. Hilarious.

9 Put ketchup packets on the toilet rim
10 Put a sticky note on someone saying spank me or kiss me etc.
The Contenders
11 Put tape on the bottom of a computer mouse

I did it to my teacher and they threw their mouse across the room!

12 Put a whoopee cushion in the teacher's seat

The teacher sits down, and then the fart sound will make the other classmates think the teacher farted.

13 Throw wet toilet paper all around a bathroom
14 Put glue on a seat
15 Put fake poop in the hallway

I did this once, and the school shut down the hall for the rest of the day.

16 Give someone a toothpaste Oreo

Take some Oreos and remove their cream. Instead, add toothpaste!

17 Make a fart noise
18 Cover someones locker in sticky tape
19 Put a bandaid in someone's desk with fake blood on it
20 Glue your teacher's things to their desk

Watch your teacher struggle to get their things, but watch out for getting caught.

21 Put gel in the toilet

Use the chemicals in diapers and then put it in a school toilet. Make sure to stir it around a bit.

22 Put bath bombs in toilets
23 Put ketchup on teacher's seat to make it look like blood and a thumbtack
24 Glue the toilet seat to the toilet
25 Start a food fight and sneak out
