When the principal of Willis High School in Texas, Travis Utrecht, told students they wouldn't be able to walk (in graduation) if they did a senior prank, the class of 2017 got to work planning their senior prank. Never change, teens!
All millennials have one powerful tool against authority at their command 24/7: memes. So these seniors chose one of the Internet's most popular memes at the moment, "Mocking Spongebob," to roast their principal. But posting a meme on Twitter wasn't guaranteed to get the principal, administration and student body's full attention.
So they made the memes by hand and hung them in the school cafeteria. BOSS MOVE, TEENS.
One of the students shared photos of the prank on Twitter. And as a reward for their creativity and courage, the students' work has gone hugely viral:
Hard to miss this:
Sorry, not sorry, Principal Utrecht.
With over 65,000 retweets since last Thursday, these students might've already won senior spring. They've definitely made at least one school alum proud:
And it turns out, Principal Utrecht knows how to take a joke and might even be cool AF. Because according to one student, he asked that the memes not be taken down:
And according to someone else on Twitter, no one will be punished over the prank.
Also, we are beginning to suspect an ulterior motive behind this prank. Because it sounds like Principal Utrecht is something of a fox.
It's true what they say. You only roast the ones you love.
