A high school student in Great Mills, Md., decided to play a sneaky prank that wasn’t even visible to the school until weeks later.
Charlie Sasscer planted corn in various locations around the grounds of Great Mills High School as a senior prank last spring, SoMdNews.com reports. Administrators began to notice the stalks coming out of the ground in strange places around campus in May and June, and finally tweeted a photo of the plants asking if anyone knew who was responsible. Sasscer owned up to the prank and the school’s principal, Jake Heibel, took it in good humor. Sasscer was not penalized for his actions, and Heibel took home an ear of corn for himself before the plants were removed.
