Student’s Senior Prank Gets Him Booted From Graduation
The school did NOT get the joke. This is "Crappy News" for Friday, May 25th.
Boston, MA- A drunk guy was arrested after complaining about pizza.
42-year-old Shaune Wittenmeyer became irate at Domino's employees about his "pizza points," which are part of a Domino's customer reward program that allows you to build credit toward a free pizza.
When they asked him to leave, he knocked a bunch of pizzas out of a delivery driver's hand. Cops showed up and Wittenmeyer started taunting them over a police sergeant who was recently killed in the line of duty.
He was arrested for disorderly conduct and witness intimidation. Cops are also investigating if Wittenmeyer drove his car--which was in the parking lot--since he was drunk and had a suspended license. [Boston Herald]
Jacksonville, FL- A man is claiming a McDonald's employee placed a detergent pod in his drink.
A guy named Lee Graves ordered a large Coke from McDonald's last Friday. One of the workers gave him the wrong size, so he corrected her. And, according to him...that made her SO ANGRY that she spiked his drink with detergent.
He took a few big sips, thought it tasted weird, and saw a blue blob floating in the drink. He dumped it out an hour later, and he found the pod at the bottom of his cup.
Graves went to the hospital, where he was treated for bleach and chlorine poisoning. He posted about the incident on Facebook, and that post has been shared more than 40,000 times. [News 4 - Jacksonville]
Apparently, the Tide Pod craze is still going strong in Florida...
Independence, MO- A senior prank led to one student getting banned from graduation.
18-year-old Kylan Scheele placed an ad on Craigslist putting his high school up for sale.
Scheele boasted about the school's amenities, including a large dining area, lots of parking, and its proximity to Walmart, and listed the price at about $13,000. The ad also included a line mentioning, quote, "a loss of students coming up," obviously referring to the graduating seniors.
The school DIDN'T see it that way, and thought that Scheele was issuing a threat on the school. Administrators suspended him for the remaining school year and yanked him from this weekend's graduation ceremony. Scheele is baffled by the school's decision, and more than 1,100 people have signed a petition to reinstate him. [Newser]
Seriously? As far as pranks go, this is pretty tame. Somebody needs to lighten up a WEE BIT.
