    I actually really want her sunglasses. I am not kidding.

  2. anna67 says:

    I’m guessing this was taken in the era of Corey Hart’s ‘Sunglasses at Night’. Did we all look that..erm….special in the 80s? I did,anyway.

  3. Missy says:

    Every single thing in that room is crooked. That would tick me off too.

  4. Silk says:

    “Don’t you….forget about us…”

    Wait, who are you?

  5. Pikkewyn says:

    They thought they had nothing in common until they discovered their mutual love for Corey Hart’s music. Well, the one song, anyway.

  6. mthrndr says:

    Nothing says ‘style’ like brown shoes with a black tie and cummerbund, and gray suit.

  8. DMF says:

    This is how people in the witness protection program have to dress in order to go to prom.

  9. Steve says:

    She may be a Volturi… nah, they wouldn’t be rocking mullets.

  10. Jud says:

    I see all the awesomeness, of course. That poor girl is trying to channel Demi Moore from St. Elmo’s Fire, but her feet are hurting!

  11. Dysphemisms says:

    Love the hair! It offsets the shades superbly!

  12. bwookc says:

    Has anyone noticed his left hand? Is he flipping off the camera?

  13. Anna says:

    Are we sure there is a guy in this picture?
    Lol…fist pumping statue… awesome!

  14. Daisie says:

    Maybe the prom theme was “Texas Hold Em”?

  15. Michael says:

    Sweet Mullet, too!!!

  16. Alan says:

    They are waiting for the valet parking to bring their white sticks & seeing eye dogs back.

  17. Maire says:

    Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

  18. Tristan says:

    Cateye Vaurnets! Soooo 80’s! When you’re cool, the sun shines down on you 24 hours a day!

  19. Lori says:

    Original lead characters for Risky Business

  20. Jenny says:

    I was at this prom and they were a very styling couple! The irony: That place was later remodeled and that is where SHE had her wedding reception! Fun times – both times 🙂

  21. A. says:

    I love this!

    And I wish it really were a seal – that would make it even funnier.

  22. Tina Vinson says:

    are we happy to be on this special date? or is that why we are wearing our shades?

  23. Stacy says:

    I think the feather duster helps to soften and diffuse a rather harsh and steadily escalating sense of foreboding.

  24. Stuart says:

    Maybe they’re just too shy, too shy, hush hush, eye to eye …

  25. Bruce says:

    That bronze statue behind them is the Seal of Approval.

    • Freckles says:

      I’ve tried and tried … but I just can’t see a seal in that statue. What I see is:

      Man leaning on his left bended leg, right leg is extended our backwards. Left arm is extended down with hand on the ground, right arm is extended upwards, with a ‘fistpump’. Head is tilted slightly upward, but face is obscured by his right, extended arm. Seems to be wearing a loincloth … and his right ribcage is prominent as it’s the ‘lightest’ part of his body (ie. reflecting light).

      Am I the only one that sees this?

      • Bruce says:

        As I have taken a second look on that which I originally said was a “seal of approval” I see there is a great deal of validity in what you have seen. You have wonderful vision and are highly imaginative. However, because I am lazy and unwilling to change even though I know I am incorrect, I still think it is a seal. Or not.

      • Rick says:

        I totally see that. It’s not a seal – it’s a person lounging on their side, exactly as you describe. Zoom in on the image, and it’s obvious! But, the seal does make for a more awkward picture.

      • angelfirett says:

        It is a dog, if you look really close to the top of the statue you can see the eyes and nose, the ears are cut out of the picture but it is definately a doberman laying down.

      • CJ says:

        Yeah, freckles that’s exactly what I saw the first time I peered closely at it.

  26. Cori says:

    Posing with the ugly bronzed seal, and that carpet and wall color is Risky Business.

  27. cranky says:

    Love it!! Remember in the late ’80s when just putting a pair of really, really dark glasses on an otherwise dorky white kid was automatic shorthand for cool? When kids did skits at camp and in the school talent show where at some point everyone reached in their pockets and pulled out their shades and put them on in unison while that “chicka-chickaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa” song from Ferris Beuller played on the giant yellow boombox? Anyone? Just me? No problem, I’m cool. (puts on shades)

    • Natty says:

      Feelin’ yr vibe, Cranky! (puts on really dark shades splattered with white paint and saunters away to the Ferris Bueller song)

    • Parker says:

      Takes me back to the days when I was rockin’ my dark shades, fat hair, jean jacket and listening to that Ferris Bueuller song by Yell-o on a cassette in my car with windows rolled down. Your’re right, Cranky, that’s the only time I was ever cool.

  28. dave says:

    He DOES have an awesome tux on, you’ve got to give him that.

  29. Britt says:

    Am I the only one who noticed that someone replaced their regular tree with a cat-scratching post?

  30. Rae says:

    Take the picture, man, so we can get back to the saloon prom.

    • Marty says:

      LOL!!! After that the photographer said, “Say Cheese!” and the girl said, “Whatever, just take the *(#*(# picture”

  31. HA says:

    His tux style matched his hair.

  32. BC says:

    Ahhh, the 1988 ‘Whispering Heights School for the Blind’ prom, epic night.

  33. carol says:

    haha! love the subcaption!

  34. Deb says:

    their futures were so bright, they had to wear shades?

  35. David says:

    Is he wearing Zaphod’s Peril Sensitive Sunglasses? I think he should be afraid, very afraid.

  36. John says:

    No pin-on corsage for this boy; take the safe wrist arrangement for safety!

  37. Sayhello says:

    “I wear my sunglasses at night, I wear my sunglasses at night…”

  38. Trish says:

    What is that on the shelf above their heads? A bronzed duck? A bronzed hockey skate?

    • Chewy says:

      Thats a bronzed statue of a football player diving for the touchdown….or maybe it is a duck…

    • Julie says:

      I think it is a seal…facing the wall.

    • Thomas says:

      I think it’s a bronzed seal

    • hello says:

      I think it’s a person on a rock with their right leg straight out behind, and their right arm raised and bent.

    • Parker says:

      I think it’s an awkward bronze nude or nudes to match the “brothel” theme in the decor. Was this the after prom site?

    • bRETT says:

      its a statue of a man holding up an olympic torch.

    • iLOLd says:

      It’s a statue of a man with his arm upstretched as if to say, “Why God? Why am I not as cool as these two? Why?”

    • Missy says:

      It is a statue of a statue of a man in a tunic on a surfboard reenacting the scene from which Daffy Duck is in the desert blazing in the sun asking for water while using only his arms to move him along the surfboard on top of sand and if you look close enough you can read the inscription that reads “Tommy and Jenny were here.” Classic piece created by absolutely no one of any importance but it added to the coolness of their attire.

  39. VibroCount says:

    “We’re just too cool for our own lives.”

  40. Mari says:

    fancy decor! gold frame, bronze statue..

  41. Tammy says:

    kids, this is what an 80s mullet looked like!

  42. what the says:

    Somebody water that plant, stat!

  43. Kalurah says:

    Finding that mystery Bronze up in the corner behind them a bit disturbing, too????

  44. Kalurah says:

    I, personally find the matching wallpaper and carpet awkward! Perhaps the sunglasses were to protect their eyes from all of that red Brocade???

    • dennylou says:

      Was their prom held at the local Elks Lodge or VFW? Her sunglasses look like ones women wore in the 1950’s

  45. Tim S says:

    Perfect caption.

  46. MidwesternMom says:

    LOL! Your titles and photo descriptions always crack me up.

  47. Angie says:

    That looks EXACTLY like my cousin did in about 1990…? I think it IS him.

  48. pag says:

    Endless love: when these two play tennis

    when Rick Okasic (lead singer of the Cars) dyed his hair and dated a blind girl

    Let them go, they are ye blind dating the blind. When one blind dates another, they fall both in love.

  49. Tanya says:

    “Now give me surly.”

  50. Lidia says:

    Haha my sister has glasses exactly like the girl in there except hers are prescriptions, not shades…
