How to be an Elementary School Bully

Updated on April 12, 2011

Choose Your Victim

Before you begin bullying, you'll need to find someone to bully.

As a general rule, look for someone smaller and weaker than you are.

The fewer friends they have to back them up, the better!

Also, be sure to give them a "nickname." Here are some suggestions:

*Freak

*Spaz

*Weirdo

*Four-Eyes

*Nerd

*Freckle-Snoot

*Scarecrow

*Wimp

*Blubber

*Bones

*Shrimp

Be creative!

Kick Me!

This trick will only work for a limited time. Eventually your victim will learn not to trust you. Enjoy it while you can.

STEP ONE:

Pretend to give your victim a pat on the back.

STEP TWO:

Stick a sign to the victim's back that says "Kick Me."

STEP THREE:

Stand back and watch the ensuing hilarity.

The Art of Towel Snapping

Take a towel, usually damp (to hold the shape!), and twist it along the diagonal to make a whip.

From there, snap the towel as you would crack a whip. Should cause your victim stinging pain where struck!

It's all in the wrist.

This technique and the two following it all involve tricking your victim into giving you their own unwitting permission to abuse them.

YOU: Would you like a Hertz Donut?

VICTIM: Yeah!!

(At this juncture you punch your victim)

YOU: Hurts, DON'T IT?!*

*Pronounced like "doughnut"

Tip: This trick works even better if you happen to have a doughnut/doughnut box to fool them with...

Button Face

Button Face

STEP ONE:

Ask your victim "Would you like a Button Face?"

STEP TWO:

If they say "yes" or "What's a Button Face?" then that's your cue to knock them down and sit on their face!

Get it?! Butt ON face!

Applecore/Baltimore

Apple Core/Baltimore

When with a group of friends and looking to start a food fight (or simply want an excuse to throw food at someone you don't like), play this "game."

STEP ONE:

Hold up the core of an apple and call out "Apple core!"

STEP TWO:

Have someone respond "Baltimore"

STEP THREE:

Say "Who's your friend??"

STEP FOUR:

From there, throw--with great force!--your apple core at whichever "friend" is named.

Taking Off Someone's Pants Without Their Permission

The Classic

Can be done by yourself or with a group.

STEP ONE:

Locate the waistband of your victim's underwear and grab onto it.

STEP TWO:

Pull upward, wedging their underwear painfully between their butt-cheeks.

Stealing Lunch Money
Stealing Lunch Money

Lunch Money

"Mugging" is Such an Ugly Word...

Bullying takes a lot of effort.

You'll need to be compensated.

Demand your victim give you their lunch money. (You can make $1 to $5 daily!)

At first, you may have to take the lunch money by force--you may even need to enlist the help of your friends--but eventually your victim will wise up and hand over the cash without fuss. At this point, the beatings you dish out will be optional.

Flat Tire
Flat Tire

Flat Tire

There are many ways to trip and push your victim--from simply extending your food at they walk by to tying their shoelaces together. The classic "Flat Tire" maneuver goes like this:

STEP ONE:

Walk closely behind your victim.

STEP TWO:

When the time is right, step on their heel. (The back of their shoe).

STEP THREE:

Make sure you keep your foot firmly in place. This will cause your victim to trip (and maybe even fall!). This will also let your victim know that your actions were on purpose and this was not a "flat tire" that one gets when accidentally walking too closely behind someone else.

Taunts and Teases -- An Important Part of Bullying! (Part One)

Here are a few standards to get you started...

Sometimes bullying can go horribly, horribly wrong...

The Most Important Thing

TELL A PARENT

TELL A TEACHER

TELL A FRIEND

CALL A HOTLINE

Roald Dahl Books - Buy Some on Amazon Today!

If you liked this Lens, then you may also enjoy the works of Roald Dahl. His books for children often touch upon (or center around!) the subject of bullying. The plights of the characters are easy to relate to, but the way the stories are written are over-the-top enough that you can easily laugh at what's happening.

As someone who was sometimes picked on myself as a kid, I'd like to say that these books really helped me. Hopefully they'll help others too!

The Twits
The Twits

I think if The Twits were real people and were around today, they'd probably be Internet Trolls. The Twits are bullies; and they get what's coming to them in a most unusual way...

A personal favourite of mine!

 
The Magic Finger
The Magic Finger

I'm sure many victims of bullying wish that they had a "Magic Finger" to make everything all better.

 
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More

The short story "The Swan" is entirely centered around bullying. Two boys (Ernie and Raymond) get their kicks by bullying/torturing another boy (Peter). The story can be a little hard to get through sometimes (depending on how emotional you're feeling at the time), but it's definitely worth the read.

The title story (Henry Sugar) has nothing to do with bullying, but I absolutely love it. HIGHLY recommended! Seriously.

 
Matilda
Matilda

Matilda is bullied by everyone!! Fortunately, she develops psychokinetic powers!

 

Depression: A Common Side-Effect to Being Bullied - Some Good Books on Amazon

Dealing with Depression can be tough. Everyone says "Go to the doctor" or "Go see a therapist," but not all of us can AFFORD to do that...

Until we're all rich enough to get the help we need from doctors and therapy, at least we have self-help books!

Depression For Dummies
Depression For Dummies

Dummies books are fantastic. I love them. I have so many of them, it's almost embarrassing. Basically, if you see a Dummies book on a topic that interests you: Get it. It'll be good.

 

Suicide Hotline

If you're being bullied and feeling depressed, lonely, or suicidal, please call:

1-800-273-TALK

Note: if you've hurt yourself or are thinking of attempting suicide for "realz," then please skip the hotline and call 9-1-1!

      @justin42: Thank you very much!

      I had dead finger used on me several times throughout my life and it never seemed to hurt the person using it! Though I've tried to do it just to see if I could and, while it didn't hurt me, I couldn't get it to work properly... Guess I'm just not meant to be a bully! But that's a good thing, I think. ;)

      This is an incredibly good lens. I am going to recommend it for lens of the day. I have never heard of the "Dead Finger" one. I imagine that it would hurt the person attached to the finger more than it would hurt the victim.

      This is a great lens. I found myself laughing my head off. It should be a children's book or a TV show on NIck :) Thank you for lightening my day but still publishing a great message.

      What a hilarious lens! Brings back memories, indeed. But poor random kid who's going to be bullied by someone who has read this. A well done lens. Hey, I just published my fourth lens called the 3 Shortcuts to Happiness and would love to know what you think of it. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Blessings! Sundae ;-)
