Way Better than 'Escapades'

"At first sight," wrote David Ogilvy in his autobiography, "the Amish give an impression of rather forbidding austerity, but I have never known people so addicted to high-jinks."

"Hijinks" is a great word.

You can attach it to any mundane task -- Sarah's trash-handling hijinks! Jessie's table-setting hijinks! -- and all of a sudden it's like monkeys did it.

Or you can use it alone, like Ogilvy did:

Last night, said Bill, hijinks happened. Hilarity ensued!

You can also never go wrong with Monkey hijinks either.
