Every time something like this happens, I get this little glimmer of hope that it's going to be the end of these ridiculous over-the-top promposals.

The latest disaster comes from La Center High School in La Center, Washington.

A senior by the name of Ibrahim Ahmad wanted to ask a Rilea Wolfe to prom. So he strapped a FAKE BOMB around his waist and went into the cafeteria with a sign.

She said yes and a bunch of people cheered and laughed, the staff didn't. They went into a panic because they thought a kid was wearing a bomb. Ibrahim was suspended for five days and won't be allowed to go to prom tomorrow night.

Just to make it worse, he says he picked the bomb gimmick to pay homage to his Middle Eastern heritage. "I'm Middle Eastern and I thought the bomb was kind of funny and clever."
