11/30/2004: Yale pranks Harvard



Widely covered elsewhere, but if you haven't seen it, hey. Some fine folks at Yale deceived Harvard-ites into creating the above, in their own house, sans-Photoshopping. It's all documented here:

Well done.

Brilliant. Utterly Brilliant.

Just think. These are the future Dubyas, et al.

Somehow I doubt that.

Dubya and brilliant in the same thought? Nah...

That is indeed a great hoax, but compared to this one:

the Yale/Harvard one is quite simple... the 1961 hoax sets the bar very, very high.



Cyber Wolf  Wednesday Dec 1 08:00 AM

Oh that's beautiful, getting so many people to fall for it at the same time!

What the CalTech hoax has in gradiose and insidious nature (national TV, late-night hotel break-ins), the Yalie caper made up for with sheer balls: They made fake "Harvard Pep Squad" shirts, marched right into enemy territory, and handed out the implements of their prankery with a smile on their faces. Shame on you, you unsuspecting Hah-vahd poofs.

Go some place wearing a tee shirt with "STAFF" or "SECURITY" printed on it and start ordering people around. Most will comply.



zippyt  Thursday Dec 2 09:15 PM

is this the word of experence talking Bruce ?????



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Dec 3 04:10 PM

Uh huh.



russotto  Friday Dec 3 08:18 PM

Don't go into a liquor store wearing a "STAFF" shirt though. People get irked when you won't tell them where the Michelob Light is. (BTDT too).



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Dec 4 11:31 PM

In PA, if you know they work there, don't even bother asking. Try one of the other customers.

Don't bother at all. Beer isn't sold in PA liquor stores.


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Dec 5 06:14 PM

Heh, right. Missed the beer thing.

All that money spent to go to Harvard...and a lot of good it did!
