I had a friend at school who started a fire under his desk to hide the fact that he was having a crafty cigarette in class. Does that count?

21. Wear a loincloth to class. If anyone asks, say that it is your costume for the school play, and you didn't have time to change out of it.
40. Come to class dressed as a professional wrestler. Tell people you joined the wrestling team. Body slam anyone who doesn't believe you.
48. When the professor calls on you, mumble incomprehensibly. Answer every question in this fashion. See how long it takes before the professor stops calling on you.

look number 7 is just ID/YEC but we know it is fun in this case.
done 21 to someone on the swim team, but hide his change of clothes so he had to go round in speedos looking for them (in the locker with the highest prime number in the school, all blocks numbered individually)
40 done it for fundraising
48 the default tactic.

You missed two old favourites.

Issue bingo cards featuring all the lecturer's favourite words. First one to collect the set jumps up with glee, shouts, punches air etc.

Sneak por no slide into the projector carousel. More tricky now they all use ruddy Powerpoint I suppose.

If you're at school you can always use some of the old Molesworth favourites.

"Tell us again how you won WWII all by yourself sir."

But you might need to update them unless you have very old (or more delusional than usual) teachers.

Did the foreign languages thing. Professors in France by definition only speak(/spoke; it's some time ago) French (and Latin).
Did the typewriter thing :) . It wasn't a loud one, however.
