Spray painting three sheep with the numbers 1, 2, and 4 respectively and releasing them into the school. Bleaching a giant penis into the baseball diamond's outfield. Dressing up like giant animals and commandeering the homecoming pep rally. These are the type of pranks that happen every year at high schools around the country.

Spray painting three sheep with the numbers 1, 2, and 4 respectively and releasing them into the school. Bleaching a giant penis into the baseball diamond's outfield. Dressing up like giant animals and commandeering the homecoming pep rally. These are the type of pranks that happen every year at high schools around the country.

Check out the entire slideshow here.
