Seniors at a Maine high school released 10 goslings and 45 chicks into their school as prank. School administrators freaked out and closed the school. My favorite line?
When students arrived, they were taken to the school gym, which had been sterilized, before being sent home.
Which had been sterilized?! How do you sterilize a gym, exactly? And do it in less then 2 hours, since the first teacher to report the birds came in a 6am, and I’m guessing some enterprising students showed up around 7:15. That’s an impressive feat.
I remember senior pranks getting pretty crazy when I was in high school, but never did I hear of the school even considering closing over one of them. The last bit of overreaction? A court date is still being considered.
