One of the most timeless summer-camp pranks, short-sheeting a bed is a quick, simple way to make a roommate mad. Read on to learn how to pull it off.
When your unsuspecting victim gets into bed, the barrier you’ve just created will prevent them from stretching out their legs completely, giving you a chance to use your best maniacal laugh. Of course, short sheeting only works if your roommate makes their bed every morning. Messy roommates are naturally immune to such hijinks.
Practice enough times—that is, lose enough friends—and you may be ready to tackle the short-sheeting world record. The current record for beds short sheeted in one day is 10,236, held by a home-cleaning franchise called MaidPro. A college student named Niles Fulton held the previous record for short sheeting 332 beds in his dorm back in 1998.
