ST. PETER, Minn. A science professor at Gustavus Adolphus College left for a week's vacation this summer and returned to a shiny office. Very shiny.

Professor Scott Bur's students had covered his office in aluminum foil. Computer screen, chairs, the ceiling, the floor all covered in foil. Books and pens were individually wrapped, so was the phone, a ball cap, a bottle and the coffee maker.

Bur said it's a sort of tradition among his research group. He goes on vacation and when he comes back there's ... something.

That last time it happened, his office was decorated for a fairy princess. Pink fabric and bows covered everything. The pink glow from the office could been across campus.

Senior Kristen Jahr said the foil prank required 10, 200-foot rolls of foil.
