Brute Farce

An axiom of college pranks dictates, "If at all possible, involve a cow." People like to put one over on their comrades whenever possible, and they're not above employing animals in their dastardly scenarios — these trusting creatures become unwitting accomplices to whatever schemes jokesters can induce them to participate in. But sometimes it's the critter who turns the tables, unwittingly making the human the object of fun by simply behaving like, well, an animal.
