    There are several pictures there that aren’t funny or embarrassing at all except for the over the top ridiculous venue decor – but there has never been a prom ever that didn’t have over the top ridiculous decor. Not the couples’ fault at all. And a couple of the photos didn’t even suffer from that little bit of yuck.

    Just becasue the photos are a few years old doesn’t automaticaly make them fugly – just not in today’s style. Maybe try to develop a little appreciation for different times.

      I assume you are one of the people in these pictures, because why else would you be defending these hilariously tragic pictures?

    PIC #23

    At first I was thinking " this chick is way too cute to be taking this dork to prom" but there is more than meets the eye in this pic. Check out those size 12' all stars this guys sporting. You know what they say about foot size to penis size correlation? If this is the night to get laid, you might as well super size it sistah!!! Besides it pisses your mom off that your taking such a radical looking dude to the prom. So now it's a two for one win-win situation. Kaching.

    PIC #2

    Neighborhood nerds, one week before prom with no date prospects the girls mom gets on the phone to the dudes mom to "make a deal" because she's tired of hearing her bitch and moan about how she has no date to the prom. Besides, dudes mom knows this a win-win since he'll be free saturday night cause he meets with his D&D club on Friday nights and she can finally have some one on one private time with the hubby. That's how i read it.

    This is what happens when unique and/or interesting people try to conform to a decades-old tradition.

    What the schools need now is a geeks-n-goth ball.

    Just remember–these kids WORKED on these looks os they would be fabulous. Now, go look in the mirror and reconsider how fab you are today . . . . Scary, isn' it?

    I remember looking at my mom's 1944 yearbook and thinking how everyone looked like they were 40 years old. I am lucky that my class never had a yearbook–some things are best left in/enjoyed solely in the past.

    It is all about the hair

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I remember it

    #8 I imagine that this guy got caught up in some crazy car chase on his way to pick up his date and the stuff on his sleeve is from him almost getting run over by either an ice-cream truck, or the Oscar Meyer Wiener-mobile.
    I'm sure that at some point or another the two of them ended up having to commandeer the wiener-mobile to drive the rest of the way to the prom. Now THAT'S how you make an entrance.

    I was just remarking on the same thing to a friend the other day. I don't feel that old, but I feel like high schoolers are getting younger and younger!

  • Troy
