Wisconsin Police Applaud “Best Senior Prank” Ever

Live hard, prank hard.

That’s seemingly always been the unintentional mantra when it comes to high school seniors in America. However, either because of the internet, or simply a more well in-tuned millennial generation, 18-year-olds are doing much better than whoopie cushions or ditch days.

Especially at Cumberland High School in Wisconsin.

That’s where high school students pulled off ‘one of the best high school pranks’ ever seen, according to local popo.

Here’s what teachers and administrators saw when arriving to school earlier this week, the “accident” right outside of the principal’s office.

Of course what appears to be the scene of a drunk driver plowing through the wall of the high school is actually simply a half-car, black tarp and a pile of bricks.

Better yet, in full-blown senior troll fashion, the windows of the car were decorated with the words, “C-ya May 19, 2018!” and “CHS Class of 2018 We’re Bustin Out.”

You also may have noticed some of the kids responsible for the prank held a banner reading, “Parents who host lose the most,” which is of course the reason why local police responded with this Facebook post:

“Hats off to the Cumberland High School Class of 2018 on your senior prank. Congratulation [sic] Class of 2018 on one of best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen. Congratulations to all the seniors who are graduating.”

Well done, kids. While I now seriously question the amount of parents hosting parties for under-age kids in rural Wisconsin, this ‘prank’ was a solid idea with perfect execution. Now go to Louie’s Finer Meats and treat yourself with the finest slab of ribs America’s dairy land has to offer.
