In high school there was a little shithead who would not stop bothering my buddy's little sister. He was too much of a pipsqueak for any of us to touch so we decided to send a subscription the local gay newspaper to his name, but used his next door neighbor's address. My buddy's sister told him the paper would stop as soon as he did. It stopped immediately.

So I love my challenge coins that I have received over the years but this guy that worked with us brought all of his into work to show off. He was really one of those kind of guys.

Anyway after about two weeks he went to our boss (retired USMC COL) and told him that he was convinced someone was messing with his coins and moving them around and out of order that he has set them up in. COL's response was basically "what the hell do you want me to do about it"......

Of course this just made it worse and someone turned up the steam after hours and adjusted the placement of said coins at least once every 3 or 4 days. The guy believed he was going crazy or that someone was out to get him......

It finally got to the point that he was taking pictures of them and sending the pictures to the boss and demanding that something be done about it. Of course no one knew what he was talking about and eventually he took his coins home.

I have played practical jokes, but I try to not make them mean. About the meanest thing I did:

When I was a paramedic, we had taken a patient to the hospital at some ungodly hour, like 2 am. On the way back to the station, about a 30 minute drive, my partner fell asleep. I drove up slowly behind a parked tractor-trailer on the side of the road...got to within 3 feet of it. I yelled, "oh, shit!" and hit the brakes really hard. He woke up, all he saw was the back of this truck, he assumed we were hitting at 60 mph. He pissed himself.

That was mean, but I didn't mean to scare him that bad.

Didn't we all

Reminds me of one summer camp when me and several other guys had problems with extremely unfriendly girl. Of all the girls on the camp she was the most bitchy, princesslike and generally nasty. Our camp was placed on the outskirts of a small village near the lake. So one night we took her with her bed out of the tent and carried her all the way to the village cementery and left her there. She was a heavy sleeper so it took about an hour for her to find out that it was quite chilly out there, then wake up, see the tombstones and scream. Loudly.

Years ago I was at a Military Instructor school at Fort Hunter-Ligget. Everybody was Seabees or Marines. There happened to be an Army Drill Sgt class going on as well.
One day, we were all in line for the chow hall, and one of the Army cats comes up with their class guidon. He just leans it against the outside wall and is ready to go into the building. One of our guys asks him, "Aren't you going to post a guard on your guidon?"
The Army guy, says something to the affect, "We don't have to, nobody is taking our guidon." and then he walked in.
Yeah, right. We stole not only that one, but their replacement one as well. Our instructors, who were 2 old, retired VN era Marines, loved it, and told us to give them a grid coordinate so they could find them to get them back.

I still have a picture with my class, holding both of those guidons.

Boy Scout summer camp was fun. We would go to other troops campsites, and douse their toilet paper rolls in Off bug spray. Making their shit paper, totally unusable.
Then we got the bright idea of lighting them on fire, and throwing them down into the vault toilets that were of course full of shit. Those of you have been around burn pits, know how burning shit smells. Those other campsites smelled for days, lol

1. Had a buddy, still have actually, who always used to grab my stuff. A bit of a joker but I could read him like a book. So one day he was surfing and I was chilling, so I drank an orange juice and pissed in the bottle. Tucked it in the sand for a while to chill. When I saw him coming out the water I leaned up against the van holding the bottle with a straw in it. True to form he walked up to me and grabbed the bottle and sucked away on the straw to try drink as much as possible expecting me to try take it away from him.

2. Had a housemate who always ate everything in the fridge. So I filled a honey jar with handcleaner that looked like clear yellowish gel. Put it in the fridge. The fridge was empty except for the honey jar. True as bob he came home and loaded up a gallon onto a slice of bread.

3. Back in the day during training on the SWA/Angolan border we had a troublesome guy in the platoon. Anyhoo, at random times they'd blow a whistle and we had x seconds to get into our trenches around the camp or we'd get nailed. So one sunday when everybody was chilling in shorts I took a dump inside troublesome-guy's boots. It took a bit of aiming skill. The whistle duly came and we grabbed boots n guns and ran and dived into our trenches. Nothing was ever said about the boots full of crap. I don't know if he even noticed

It's a very long, and distinguished list. I wish I had time to actually type up some of the shenanigans I've engaged in.

That said, I'm a teacher and generally have the respect of just about all my kids, so there are a great many jokes/pranks that get played on a daily basis. However, those aren't mean.

I'm an occasional academic teacher and shit the students sometimes pull is quite impressive. Is it mean? No, just light-hearted.

One professor I knew and even cooperated with was an a-hole. And he was absolutely computer-illiterate. So one day he ended his class and went to have a lecture for half the university in the auditorium. He connected his laptop to the projector, and turned it on. That sweet xxx wallpaper and several porn sites added to autostart made him blush so hard he almost exploded.
I was not there, but the entire lecture got disrupted because wherever the prof said a word that could have a sexual meaning everyone bursted into laughter. Not to mention he was blushing like a virgin all the time. He became nicer after this, but he also began to guard his laptop like it was his underwear. He walked with it everywhere, even to the toilet.

The natives in the sandbox like to eat mutton. Lots of it, apparently. They ship it in from Australia and New Zealand, live on the hoof, in big sheep ships. Not all the sheep make it, and they canít take dead animals into port, so the ones that donít make it get pitched over the side. Long story short, thereís a lot of dead sheep floating around the Persian Gulf.

So when on patrol, when encountering a dead, 2-3 day old bloated sheep carcass, the lead boat would maneuver in such a way as to run down and pop that balloon full of muttony goodness, thus ensuring the trail boat got to sail into a nice little cloud of dead sheep gas.

Not familiar with that one.

When I was on sub duty we were tied up one night in Port Canaveral, FL. Nothing much was happening, but it was my turn to stay on board while others were out sampling the wares of Cocoa Beach. A little after midnight I was in my bunk, which was the uppermost of three. The little lamp above my head was on so that I could read a book but my coffin curtain was drawn so I wouldn't bother anyone. I heard and smelled a drunk come in, bouncing off bunks as he made his way to his own, which was the top one across the narrow aisle from mine. He pulled off his boots, left them on the deck, crawled up into his bunk, coughed a couple of times, and went to sleep. I didn't know at the time that what I thought was coughing was actually him puking.

The power cord to his bunk lamp ran up through a small hole in the bottom of his bunk pan that held his mattress. His vomit ran down through the hole, trickled down the wire, and dripped onto the face of the dude in the bottom bunk. When that guy woke up and realized that he had someone else's puke on his face, he rolled out of his bunk, pulled back the curtain of the middle bunk above him, and commenced beating the crap out of that dude, who was asleep, innocent, and clueless as to why he was getting punched.

When the two of them figured out that it was actually the guy in the top bunk's fault, they both beat up the drunk dude a bit before deciding that he needed more than just a beating. When the drunk woke up the next day, he couldn't find his boots. Because he didn't have them, he got in a bit of trouble, which amounted to spending a week or so on trash duty, which on a sub is extraordinarily gross (repeatedly getting squirted with the liquid contents of the trash from a compactor). At the end of his garbage time he found his boots in his bunk (they had been stashed in the bosun's locker in the torpedo room). When he put them on he discovered that the toes had been packed with red moly grease, which stained his foot semi-permanently (his foot looked like a radish for about a month).

Red moly grease is fun!

We have a guy in the office that has a prized model of the Space Shuttle. He asked someone near him to protect it during his vacation. He should have taken it home because I did this with it...

One day in school the teacher told us to study for a test the next day,
several of us went out that night, didn't get home until just about time to go to school, some of the guys didn't make it to class that day. Someone had told me that if you chew a raw potato, spit it out. It look like puke.

I went in to the class room took my seat. Put the raw in my mouth an chewed it up. Went up to the Teacher an Holden my stomach anI started to tell the teacher I didn't feel well, reached over got the trash can & spit what I had in my mouth. The look on her face Told me to go the Nurse's office.

Had several days to study for the make up test

That's pretty funny.

If any of your co-workers have a favorite mug that they leave on their desk or around the coffee machine, swipe it, find a mug with a similar handle that you can break off, then put it in an envelope with a ransom note threatening to cut off the mug's other ear if they don't pay up.

If you really wanted to mess with him you could have replaced all of his challenge coins with pogs.

On my second trip to Panama, (77) I had an E-5 leg squad leader. We had a night movement through the elephant grass at some point. I was compass and the leg was right behind me. I'd glide over the drainage ditch and hear a crash as he fell. Happened the whole way across the field.

Early 80s, working with another detective whom I had a prank war ongoing with.
We had to go see the judge in chambers to sign a search warrant. I took finger print ink and smeared it around his sunglasses.

When we went in to the judges office, he took off his glasses revealing raccoon eyes...full black circles around his eyes.

He started talking to the judge, and then the judge says....what's wrong with your eyes.....he spins and says, you SOB.....

I laughed so hard I cried. Judge thought it was pretty funny too
