This is a question Messing with people's heads

Theophilous Thunderwulf says: What have you done to fuck with people? Was it a long, carefully planned piece of psychological warfare, or do you favour quick, off-the-cuff comments that confuse the terminally gullible? Have you been dicked with, and only realised many years later? Are you being dicked right now? Tell us everything.

I used to work at a large University
That had a biomedical research facility. This is a fluffy name for "does animal research". I worked in the same building that housed this, but wasn't related in that. I do tech stuff.

The bit of the building that houses the animal stuff is *extremely* secure. It's not on the list of floors when you walk in the door, the lifts need a key to get up there, etc.

After a fire drill one day, we mentioned to some of the students that some of the mini elephants had escaped. When the response was confusion, we said something like "What, you don't know about them? The project has been going for *years*! Yeah, they've been breeding these mini elephants up there. Fit in the palm of your hand, but some of them got into the lift. They were running around reception, so the building had to be evacuated whilst they caught them again."

As with the best rumours like that - mention it to five or ten people and then leave it be.

That was about 10 years ago. I still hear the rumour occasionally being spread round now.
