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.

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.
Douche Bag:"Dude, you goin to Prom next Saturday"
Pro:"Fuck no shits a waste of money"
Douche Bag:"ha you just couldn't get a date"
Pro:"Well I'll be fucking your mom on saturday does that count as a date?"

The day my girlfriend dumped me in the morning, and that night I got drunk and maybe got chlamydia from a swim-team whore. The sad part is, this happens to many of us.
"Damn, prom was fun. I sure hope nobody finds out about who I fucked, though."

Shortened form of promenade. Defined fully in the previous 10 some entries.
Hey Billy-Sue, would you be so kind as to be my date to the prom? I promise I'll take a shower if you do.

A an event that is bascially a cheap High School Dance dressed up to look expensive. I tis the last night the cool kids can be cool together before something called "Real Life" takes over.
"I heard Prom sucked, Im glad I didn't go."

A "ball" or "dance" that is formal and most commonly held during the junior and senior years of high school. A popular and anticipated event to the lives of many students, where tradition goes a date is taken, dresses are bought and tuxedoes and limos are usually rented, complete with expensive preparation that include trips to salons, boutiques, hotels, etc. A pre-photo shoot and dinner are common amongst large parties or regular dates. Held usually in a school gymnasium, or if the student government has some money, a hotel, country club, or even a boat. Hip-hop or mainstream music is usually played, complete with dancing or socializing in a decorated or themed setting. A prom king or queen that have been elected days before the prom are crowned. Proms usually end with an after party or dinner.
Student #1: Hey tell me about the prom coming up!
Student #2: Well, my date is Michael, and we're matching with the colors red and white. We're gonna have dinner with my friends at Olive Garden. The prom theme is something tropical. The court nominees are Ashley, Shannon, Michelle, Adrian, Jordan, and Jacob. I'm gonna vote for Ashley and Jake. Afterward, I'm heading to Ashley's party. I'm so excited!
