Outhouse tipping is a prank consisting of overturning an outhouse or a portable toilet, usually onto the door.

A potential unsuspecting victim

It allegedly used to be performed as revenge for not being given a treat at Halloween.[1] Legendary versions of elaborate outhouse pranks have been preserved in the histories of various schools, towns, and communities.[2][3]

The prank itself is the topic of other jokes. For example, in 1992, during the annual North Kansas City Snake Parade, a course in "Outhouse Tipping 101" was given in an open-air classroom.[4]
