It's the end of the school year, and kids are getting a little buggy.
At Chopticon High School in Morganza, Maryland, a few high school seniors took that bugginess to the extreme.
They pulled off a senior prank that unleashed 72,000 ladybugs on the high school.

There's a movie hitting the theaters on June 5 that's sort of flying under the radar, dwarfed by some of the blockbusters that will open the summer season.
Love & Mercy is the story of Brian Wilson, one of the driving forces of the Beach Boys.
They've got two actors playing the same guy - John Cusack and Paul Dano.
Watch the trailer, and then watch the interview Variety magazine posted last fall with the actors in the movie.
And make an appointment for early June - this one looks pretty good.
Imagine you're graduating from high school.
You're on stage, waiting to hear your name.
You're waiting, and waiting, and you're really up there all by yourself.
You think they've forgotten your name.
Then they say your name. You grab your diploma, and you realize there's someone else on stage with you.
