Today it was a bunch of Russian song lyrics and "EL PSY CONGROO" in English and Katakana xD
Hehe, I liked to do similar classroom antics. I also used to write inappropriate questions or statements on little slips of paper and put them in the books that the whole class shared. It only paid off once, in my AP English class, we were in the middle of the teacher over-dramatically reading Antigone, this kid raised his hand, "I think my book just sexually harassed me."
Not so much in recent years, but I used to play lots of small pranks at work. When I was a line cook, the owner used to come into the back kitchen to make himself coffee. He came in one time, set his cup down next to the machine and went into the walk-in cooler to grab some creamer. I snatched his cup and hid it in the front kitchen, then went back to cooking.
He comes into the kitchen "Did you see where I put my coffee cup?"
"Can't really talk right now, Ron, I've got a lot of orders!"
So he goes downstairs to his office, thinking he forgot to bring it up with him. I quickly put the mug back exactly where it was, and go back to the orders.
When he came back up, he sees the cup, picks it up, looks around and comes back to the front kitchen to start to say something. Ends up changing his mind and just puts the cup in the sink. "I think I've had too much coffee today, already."
