(noun) formal dance, usually in the springtime.

for high school juniors and seniors, and the occasional underclassman who gets asked by a desperate upperclassman.

slightly overrated.

some may experience a 'creative' way of being asked to the dance.
'creative' way of asking: someone painting 'PROM?' on the hood of your brand new car with paint that actually doesn't wash off. you deny him, but take the homemade cookies he made for you, because shit, your car is fucked.

An event that stupid people think is the "pinnacle of you high school career". Really it's just a way for guys to pay $300 and girls $150 to bone each other. You prance around like an idiot to crappy rap music. Some people feel like they missed out on something important because they skipped prom. Those people are retards.

A complete waste of time. I seriously wonder why they organize Dances at a School. They expect you to have fun, but what's the catch?
Jeremy: Hey Vincet, I'm going to the Prom with Linda. Want to tag along?
Vincent: Sorry, Jeremy, but I'm not interested in a school dance where they hire crappy DJs and make crappy cardboard cutouts for decorations.

A high school dance which is often viewed as a defining moment in people's lives. Unfortunately for the prom king and queen, the actual defining moment is usually the reverse of what really happens.
At my high school, the captain of the football team and the head cheerleader were prom king and queen. Ten years later, the prom queen now weighs 300 pounds, has ten kids and is on welfare, the prom king is a delivery driver for Home Depot, and the guy he used to stuff in the locker, who didn't even go to prom, made a million bucks off some MMORPG he concocted right out of high school, lives in Beverly Hills and is banging a starlet.

A night that is liberal, sexy, horny, and a good way to get laid legally, which I couldn't get a girl to go with me so I really didn't experience it.

A last day of school, when kids get together in a crappy decorated place with a realy cheap dj and questionable food, so u get drunk, cheat on your girlfriend with some whore, get a package of stds, ur girlfriend finds it out, dumps you, while the school principal now can afford college for his four children and for the rest of the $ he flies of to Amsterdam, laughing at you.

Alternatives: 1.Go clubbing for much less.
2. If in canada, go to Montreal, every1 gets some there
3.Go to Amsterdam for the same $.
What can you expect from a party organized by catholic shcool, a prom?
