    Originally posted by Yale Students Perform Prank of the Century, Almost

    In a rivalry that is 121st
    old, students at Yale
    University successfully
    pulled off the most
    impressive prank in the
    history of rival pranks.

    The students (in a video
    you can view here)
    faked being members of
    the "Harvard Pep
    Squad," passing out
    pieces of paper to the
    Harvard side of the

    These Harvard fans
    were told that the
    pieces of paper would
    join together to spell
    "GO HARVARD." Little
    did they know, when
    held up at just the right
    moment, the pieces
    actually spelled "WE SUCK."

Thats so awesome.

Whoa. As the cousin of a Yale football alumnus, I'm all for sticking it to Harvard. Damn, that's eeeeeeeeeevil.

(EDIT: True, Jackson, but the original linked article acknowledges that. They've got the same link in their page that you do.)

Now THAT is a cool pic.

Yeah, it's been done before, but it was HARVARD. I love it when someone gets one over on an egghead. They's supposed to be smarter than that

The fact that Yale ripped off an old Caltech prank speaks far more highly of Caltech and its tradition of wonderful pranks than of Yale, methinks.

Oh, and though it's probably out of print by now, I give the Neil Steinberg book If At All Possible Involve a Cow: The Book of College Pranks the highest recommendation. A great read - and discusses better pranks that both Yale and Caltech have pulled off.
Thread ahead: Wow. I guess I'm kinda nervous....
