A very overrated school function that is basically a money maker for the school.

Usually the ones that go to prom are

1. Steady couples
2. The popular girls dating the popular guys
3. Horny creepy looking guys looking to get laid
4. A few, not too many, random couples that just want to go
5. A few people that just can't get a date but still go just to "say you been there." Usually are a little chubby, gay, or socially inept.

When you get there, you eat food in the weirdest combinations like lasagna and mashed potatoes and dance to stuff that you hear on Top 40 at Wal Mart or something off the local urban station.
Prom is overated; I rather spend my money on something more important, my college education.

May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

A formal dance in highschool where guys spend a lot of money and take a girl somewhere nice to eat and have to come up with a creative way to ask a girl out. For example: over urban dictionary.

To the students: an excuse for horny young teenagers to get together for a night of drinking, fornication and promiscuity, how romantic!

To business: a corporate-controlled/ promoted high school "institution" that makes the dress shops, hairdressers, flowershops, limo companies, suit rental places, etc more wealthy.

To the students who don't get to go: a lifelong regret, an occasion that fat chicks can not get a date for.Makes more people unhappy than any one other thing in highschool...
I borrowed Dad's car, then spent $400 on renting a suit, buying flowers, tickets to the prom, some liquor and a locket on a chain for her. Oh, and condoms. She bought a dress, got her hair and 20 nails done, bought shoes,tear-off underwear,a purse, and got a horrendous period an hour before midnight.
So she gave me a blowjob just like any other date, and she's still a virgin.

Waste. Of. Money.
You have to pay obscene amounts of money for a god damn dance. Prom means you have to buy a Dress/Tux, Ticket, Limo, hotel, dinner, etc.
