Another pranktical joke.
This popular story came out a few years ago, timely now as the school year winds down and practical jokes gear up.
In a high school with some clever pranksters, overnight students released goats into the hallways. When principals opened the doors that Friday, SURPRISE. Small goats, with numbers painted on their sides, ran scared, slipping on the shiny tile floors to avoid capture.
The chase took over 15 minutes, and after capture the office people and teachers locked the goats into a storeroom. The idea was to remove them from sight before the students arrived. Of course if you know goats like I know goats, nothing could keep them quiet, blathering away. Also, the story was the buzz among the students. The day wasn’t ordinary.
They found three goats, numbers 1, 2, and 4. But the administration spent the rest of the day searching for number 3. Never found. Why? Number 3 goat didn’t exist.
