Wide World of Pranks: Rant

Great School / Stadium Prank

Kyle Garchar, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School in suburban Columbus, Ohio, should be very proud of himself right now. He pulled off an excellent school prank. It was so excellent that nobody was hurt, no property was damaged, the only problem was his stick-in-the-mud school Principal has suspended him for his prank. I'm guessing Kyle wears the suspension like a badge of honor.

The prank was simple, yet brilliant. He tricked football fans from a crosstown rival Darby High School into holding up signs that together spelled out, "We Suck."

Kyle said he spent about 20 hours over three days plotting the trick. He created a grid to plan how the message would be spelled out once fans in three sections held up either a black or white piece of construction paper. Directions left on stadium seats instructed fans to check that the number listed on their papers matched their seat numbers. Darby supporters were told the message would read "Go Darby." "It was tedious," Garchar said. "I didn't really think it was going to work."

Kyle 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 Principal John Bandow had told students that he expected them to show sportsmanship at the game, which Darby won 21-10. The problem with John Bandow is that he doesn't see is that in addition to sportsmanship, students need to show some pride in themselves and pride in their school. Nobody goes to a high school football game wearing the same colors as the opponents or cheering because someone scored a point, which would be true sportsmanship. No sir, you go and you jeer the other team, you think up pranks, If you attend Davidson, you cheer when Darby drops the ball. Thats part of the game. Thats why we have it organized into teams, divisions and championship games. You can do all of that and without school pride, it's boring, it's pointless.

Kyle Garchar, we at Planet Wally salute you. But we have some hints for other potential pranksters. The biggest is plan out your prank in advance. Figure out how you will make the plan happen. Take measurements, come up with a written plan. The other hint is do not take immediate credit for your actions. Let people wonder who did it. The longer it takes to figure out, the more exposure you generate for yourself. Eventually word will leak out.

Remember, if you get suspended, wear it like a badge of honor. Do you have plans for college? Who do you think the admissions office is going to consider, someone with straight A's or someone with a B average who shows real school spirit? The answer is always the one who's parents can make the biggest endowment. But short of that, people who show school spirit, who show brains and good old fashioned gumption.

Now go forth and prank!
