A high school student in Portland just pulled an awesome prank, sending a letter to every parent on school letterhead encouraging them to allow parties with alcohol and sex after the prom. Of course the prank was obvious (at one point if referred to the school, Lincoln High, by it’s nickname “Drinkin’ Lincoln,” and the envelope contained a condom), harmless, and very funny (it could even be argued it was sensible… I see nothing wrong with 18 year-olds having a few beers, especially if they have parental consent). So the administrators chuckled a bit, remembered all the shit they got away with when they were kids, sent a correction letter home and let it go at that.
Shelby said the school is actively trying to find whoever initiated the scam. “It’s a high school and students talk,” he said. “Given the amount of exposure this has had, I’m fairly confident the school administration will find the source.”
But this joke may have severe consequences. Officials say students involved could face punishment ranging from detention to suspension. And a district policy says that any student who receives disciplinary action such as a suspension within two months of graduation can be barred from participating in the graduation ceremony.
And the kicker:
Additionally, officials are working with authorities to find out if any laws were broken.
