There's the story about the MIT student who spent an entire summer going to Harvard football field every day wearing a black and white striped shirt. Each day he was seen walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes throwing birdseed all over the field, blowing a whistle and then walking off the field.

The guy wrote his thesis on this and graduated.
