(NEWSER) – Senior year may not be ending so pleasantly for 62 students at New Jersey's Teaneck High School. They were arrested in connection with an ill-advised senior prank that involved them busting into their school around 2am today and allegedly doing the following: rubbing Vaseline on door handles, peeing in hallways, flipping over and breaking desks, graffiti-ing the place, and leaving balloons in their wake, report the Record and NBC New York.

The story reminds me of breaking into St. John, my high school in Mississippi.  Now, I'm not going to admit how many times it happened; but, most recently, it was after our 20th Class Reunion.  After dinner, a few of us found ourselves hanging out in the recently abandoned school parking lot.  The school was permanently closed a few months earlier, so we figured what the hell ... And, I've got a few pictures to prove it.

Names withheld to protect the not-so-innocent.  Let me stress, no damage was done!
