NYACK - The Nyack High School students who plotted the annual senior prank this week wound up getting pranked themselves.
Their initial plan was simple enough: Seniors would go into the high school late at night, remove nearly all the classroom desks and chairs, and line them up in the shape of a giant "2008" on the field behind the school.
Senior Erin Cummings, 17, said about 100 seniors came to the school at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and worked for several hours arranging the desks.
But it seems another group came out to the field afterward and rearranged the desks in the shape of a penis, leaving the image that way for everyone to find yesterday morning.
"Personally, it was upsetting to see all our hard work turn into a huge penis," Cummings said, though she conceded she was proud her class was able to cause a little chaos for the day.
"Kids were on the floor laughing. They thought it was the funniest thing," she added.
Principal Daniel Nicholson says he authorized the "2008" shape. He and police say the penis shape was just another prank so they're not investigating.
