Some of Meeker High School’s seniors reportedly got themselves in a mess o’ trouble last week when they carried the annual “senior prank” a bit too far. The glue on the school carpet and the overflowing toilets were just outside the realm of acceptable bad behavior. Of course, discussion of the topic invariably leads to the recounting of senior pranks in the past, here or anywhere else. Based on some of the stories overheard, what happened at MHS could have been worse!
