This one reminds me of my grandad's stories of his college days, right down to the prank where they disassembled a friend's car and put it back together in the faculty lounge. (That was the stunt that got him kicked out of his first university in spite of the fact that his father was on the board of directors.)

Once I read this, years after he passed away, I realized that he and his fellow old-money cronies probably derived inspiration for his final prank from their literary society.
