One year when I was still in high school we had a girl whose uncle was working with Howard-Hanna and lent her a real sign for the day to put out front. Apparently there were hundreds of calls to both us and Howard-Hanna inquiring about the property/ upset that our school was going to be sold.
My second favorite we did was put another sign out front saying "we will be accepting BOYS for the next school year!!!" (all girls school you see). Cue the phone calls and an administration very mad at us. :biggrin:
