“A prank I would like to play is the Mayo prank. You take an old Mayo jar and rinse it out. Then you fill it with vanilla pudding. After you fill it with pudding, you eat it in public.”

Tacoma chapter leader, Essence Harris

“One of my brothers filled up a cup of vegetable oil (looks exactly like apple juice) and told me to try this new kind of apple juice. Before I could realize it was just oil, I had taken a huge gulp and swallowed it. Needless to say, it was scarring.”

Olympia chapter leader, Mikhail Stewart





“You take a milk jug and empty it and then take a mac-and-cheese box, take out the cheese mix and put it in the milk jug and then fill it up with water. Change the label to Orange Juice then have somebody drink it!”
