NEW YORK — As far as proms go, this one had a whole lot more to offer than slow-dances and Kool-Aid ... or at least a group of pranksters said it did.
Perplexed parents of students at Daniel Hand High School in Madison, Conn., were less than pleased when they got a note — on school letterhead, no less — offering a boozy, boneheaded proposal to curb the problem of prom-night partying, WTNH reports.
The letter offered “a more unproblematic solution” to promgoers' attempts to spike their senior sendoff by sneaking banned booze into the bash, saying that if parents signed a permission slip, the prom would cut out the middle man, so to speak, and serve each attendee “eight alcoholic beverages.”
Ok, I admit it. This is a great one.
