When I and my friends used to do something naughty or unwise, my mom always called it silly-goose behavior. Geese always fly in a V formation. The lead goose breaks wind for those that follow, making it easier for those in the rear to benefit from the effects of the wind and as the lead goose tires, another goose flies forward to take its place. Breaking wind has two connotations, and the one most apt will describe what is to follow.
