A group of students stacked steel-belted tires up the flagpole at their school…imagine how hard it would be to get those all on there, and how much harder it would be to get them all off! This would be a great idea for a small town prank, where there would be plenty of tires around from farms to stack up on the flagpole. Just make sure the farmers won’t need their tractors and equipment for as long as the tires might be up there!
