24 of the Worst Pranks Students Ever Pulled on Their Teachers

By Mustafa Gatollari

There's a line between pranks that are fun and others that just go too far and I think a lot of it has to do with the intention of the joke and who's carrying that joke out.

Some people use pranks as an excuse to lighten the mood and put a smile on the face of whoever they're pranking.

Others use it as an excuse to just live out whatever crumbiness they have lingering deep in their soul. Unfortunately for the teachers and classmates of the jokesters in this list, the pranks fell into the latter category.

1. John Wayne and woodshop.

In 8th grade, I had a woodshop teacher who was an old curmudgeonly dude. Hugely tall (seriously like 6'8) and deaf in one ear. He was a nice enough guy if you paid attention and didn't make his life/job harder.
Some 8th grade kids in my class were being little $!#$* on the last day of school and wanted to be mean to the teacher, so they snuck out of class on his free period and into the woodshop and into his office where they ripped to shreds his autographed poster of John Wayne.
When the teacher returned and found it, he started crying. Apparently John Wayne was his idol, and well, a personalized and autographed (like in person from John Wayne) poster was not something he was going to be able to replace.
As far as I know, everyone knew who did it but without any actual evidence no one got in trouble and the teacher retired at the end of the year.
