Monday Morning Smile LI – Those hazy College Daze…..


Wow, I really feel like summer is finally starting to get here. I hope everyone is starting to feel it. The breeze is a little fresher, the steaks  smell a little better, the patio drinks a little colder, and the kids just a little more tolerable. I had a full weekend, I hope you did too. A lot of yard work, some tree trimming, pool cleaning, etc. You know – the stuff of eternal excitement.

Saturday I played in a memorial golf tourney with a bunch of my old college friends.

What a blast that was. It’s been a while, but we connected like we saw each other only last week. The old stories starting flowing as soon as our car doors opened. Remember that time we…..

In honour of old college war stories I thought I would highlight some college pranks.

1. Drunken friend falls “asleep” after a few too many wobbly pops. His “friends” take a red marker and colour the insides of his ears bright red. Also the back of his neck. The next morning he awakens to many, many “redneck” jokes. He laughs at all the jokes not knowing that he was the butt of the jokes all along.

but this is just childish….here are some real pranks…..

2. Perhaps the most ingenious and hilarious large-scale college prank was the Harvard-Yale prank. Some disguised Yale pranksters gave placards to the Harvard fans, telling them it would spell “Go Harvard”. On cue the Harvard faithful held up their cards. See what it spells below….

Harvard_poster  Hilarious.

3. Even better….University of British Columbia Engineers managed to suspend a VW Beetle from a 27m steel cable from the underside of maybe the most famous bridge in the world – all without a single person seeing it. To this day, know one knows how they did it. And the whiz kids that pulled it off have never come forward.


Gotta love a great prank.
