This year, Blacker pranked the Lloyd tree by adding a hat on top!
Some pictures from the construction of the hat:
On November 30, 2016, Blacker Frosh pulled off a prank during their last Ph1A lecture of the year. With the theme “Fantastic Beasts”, things got somewhat out of hand when someone left their magical briefcase open, releasing a hoard of friendly creatures on the Ph1A lecture hall.
Inside the present on the lower roof was the Lloyd gong.
A fake gong (read: a cardboard circle) was wrapped and placed on the stolen frame in front of the tree.
When Lloyd refused to recover their gong from the roof and begged Blacker to do it for them, the gong was taken down, and instead placed above the Blacker fireplace.
The Lloyd Christmas tree went up as usual, and it got pranked – as usual.
The frosh class built a replica of the Lloyd gong, and set up a string of net lights down Millikan. It was rigged such that when the gong was hit, the lights would light up to reflect how hard you hit the gong.
The tallest light was set not to go off unless you pressed a hidden button, allowing the frosh (and others in the loop) to impress people with their strength.

On the last day of the Ph1a lecture, a group of mole frosh decided to liven the class up with a prank. Having got permission from the Prof to interrupt class, they worked to install a Vanishing Cabinet (from Harry Potter) in the lecture hall.
When the lecture rolled around, there was indeed a Vanishing Cabinet there. But that was merely the beginning…
Near the start of the lecture, a student walked out and proceeded to sit down and take notes.
It was good fun all around, and definitely livened up the last lecture.
