Textbook graffiti

Back in middle school, we had classroom sets of textbooks, and the science ones in particular gathered a lot of graffiti.

I'm wondering if any of you can tell me--whether you have middle school-aged children, are a teacher, or ARE in middle school yourself--if a specific type of book graffiti is still popular.

On the first page (or usually inside the front cover), you'd see, for example, "Turn to page 189." Then you'd flip to 189, and would see "Turn to page 64." Flip to page 64 and see "Turn to page 83" and on and on until you get to a lame insult or a doodle of genetalia or something.

Do they still play this joke, or did that go out with MC Hammer pants?

Edited to add: Thanks a lot, you guys! You've been a huge help! <^^>
