    I am not sure who submitted this, but thank you! If that was the most awkward picture I have ever taken then I am doing really well! As stated before, it was Sno Daze, not Prom and we were posed by photos and had no choice in backdrop. It was a good time and I have totally enjoyed reading the comments and having a good laugh. Especially all of the thundercats references. Outstanding.

    Have to say – THANK YOU so much for your blog!!
    Pretty rare to find a decent site which isn’t just full of spam anymore :P

    I’ve already bookmarked it so I can come back to it! :D

    It’s from a White Bear Lake High School Sno Daze dance. Yes, you spell it Sno Daze. I actually know those people.

    Charity didn’t know how she would tell Lucas she only wanted him for his AG-5798

  7. Ski Courses says:

    The perfect break for skiers wishing to escape for some superb skiing!

  8. Jenny says:

    It’s actually from White Bear Lakes “Sno Daze” winter formal here in MN. How do I know? I WAS THERE! And those two were friends of mine!!

  9. Jerome H says:

    I think this is a winter formal picture, we call it the “Snow Ball” up here in Minnesota.

    If it were prom he would likely be wearing a tux and they would have a winter theme.

    This picture would even be better if they were both sitting on the snowmobile!

    Is this a prom pic??? OMG!!!

  11. kristina says:

    So, I saw this, and my first thought was…I bet this is a winter formal and the theme has something to do with snow…..and then, when I realized I thought this was normal, I came to the conclusion that growing up in the midwest has affected my judgement.

    Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats HO!!!!!!

  13. sadie says:

    I had the same dress for my prom…I’m going to go cry now

  14. tom says:

    I wish they would like take the picture already…… Studmuffins gets to sit on the sled, while I stand here ankle deep in cold wet snow, getting frostbite on my feet!!! is there a doctor here?

  15. Joe says:

    Actually the snow mobile was a wedding gift for these two love birds.
    I sent it to them myself. Congrats again!

    0-to-awkward in mere seconds, though

  18. Nicole says:

    Give ‘er.

  19. kegbot says:

    Awww, I think that’s sweet!

  20. Dave says:

    The best part of this is that it’s clear that it is in a studio. You can see the shadows behind them from the lighting. They convinced whatever photographer to let them get their snowmobile in the studio somehow, and then also convinced them to go outside and get some snow to pile around it.

    At first I thought the backdrop was ripped at the bottom from the snowmobile, but I think that’s some dirt in the snow.

    in 1996, people at the prom posed with fire trucks…..and cop cars. I wanted to find a harley but it was too last minute

  22. robin says:

    I don’t get it…………………

  23. RaoulG says:

    Submitted by Sarah? Sarah who? Sarah Palin?

  24. RWBlake says:

    Wow, what an action shot. How did they get this at the right time?


  25. Mel says:

    I actually have a middle school dance pic with a jet ski. The theme had something to do with spring/summer/sun/beach, but I never really got it. It just seemed lame to me. It was a spring formal and people dressed in formal clothes with recreational motor-type toys just seemed *awkward* and hilarious. I think it was a trend in the 90s. I had to laugh when I saw this because of the connection.

  26. Dani says:

    Does anyone else notice what looks like a huge hole in the wall right behind the girls hand?

  27. neverfirst says:

    THUNDERCATS ARE GO!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Amice says:

    You had me at Vroom.

  29. dandaman says:

    Shouldn’t they be dressed more warmly? I mean how many people go snowmobiling with a corsage? OK, some do, but not a lot.

  30. Jim says:

    Best Winter Formal EVER!

  32. tonybaloney says:

    Wow! The Thundercat AG5798! This specialty vehicle was meant for driving over cotton.

  33. SLC says:

    that’s not a snow plow…

  34. rivkah says:

    Better Prom theme than my school had…it was: “Evening In Paris” and the Eiffel Tower collapsed on me!

  35. MST says:

    Up here in the alpine range the sun is so close we don’t need jackets in the winter, but the fog gets so thick we throw shadows in opposing directions..

  36. Annie says:

    That’s actually rather cute

  37. Rae Kwon says:

    i wonder if it was the sweater vest or the snowmobile that first intrigued her?

  38. catherine says:

    Prom night in Manitoba.

    • Gourd says:

      I and my family life in manitoba…my sister got married outdoors in November. She wore a custom-made white snowsuit and he wore a black snowsuit. The newlyweds drove off from the ceremony on snowmobiles.

      I don’t know why I’m telling this story. Maybe I should send pictures.

      • Cheryl says:

        ok, so did they wear the snow suits the entire wedding or just for the drive off? or glide off, or whatever the appropriate verb is for snowmobiling (I’m from Florida, sorry).

    • Alex says:

      It’s in Minnesota – see the sticker on the snowmobile.
