He said, “Wanna go to prom? She said, “I guess.”

I actually really want her sunglasses. I am not kidding.
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.
Every single thing in that room is crooked. That would tick me off too.
“Don’t you….forget about us…”
Wait, who are you?
They thought they had nothing in common until they discovered their mutual love for Corey Hart’s music. Well, the one song, anyway.
Nothing says ‘style’ like brown shoes with a black tie and cummerbund, and gray suit.
Timbuk 3: The Early Years
This is how people in the witness protection program have to dress in order to go to prom.
She may be a Volturi… nah, they wouldn’t be rocking mullets.
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!
Love the hair! It offsets the shades superbly!
Has anyone noticed his left hand? Is he flipping off the camera?
I think you might be on to something! The shadow tends to make us think that may be true!
Are we sure there is a guy in this picture?
Lol…fist pumping statue…..so awesome!
Maybe the prom theme was “Texas Hold Em”?
Sweet Mullet, too!!!
They are waiting for the valet parking to bring their white sticks & seeing eye dogs back.
Nobody puts Baby in the corner!
Cateye Vaurnets! Soooo 80’s! When you’re cool, the sun shines down on you 24 hours a day!

The Best Little Risky Business in Texas
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 🙂
I am so glad to hear it was remodeled before her reception. But there will always be a special place in my heart for velvet wallpaper.
cool story! i always love hearing the background info
I love this!
And I wish it really were a seal – that would make it even funnier.
are we happy to be on this special date? or is that why we are wearing our shades?
I think the feather duster helps to soften and diffuse a rather harsh and steadily escalating sense of foreboding.
LOL Now that is funny!
Maybe they’re just too shy, too shy, hush hush, eye to eye …
Kajagoogoo for the win!!!!
That bronze statue behind them is the Seal of Approval.
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?
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.
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.
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.
I think it looks like a before-the-second-wind-comes “Rocky” statue. Adrienne!!!
Yeah, freckles that’s exactly what I saw the first time I peered closely at it.
Posing with the ugly bronzed seal, and that carpet and wall color is Risky Business.
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)
Feelin’ yr vibe, Cranky! (puts on really dark shades splattered with white paint and saunters away to the Ferris Bueller song)
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.
He DOES have an awesome tux on, you’ve got to give him that.
He looks like of Music Man. All he needs is 76 trombones and a big parade. Plus a whistle and a baton.
…and the Wellth Fargo Wagon comin’ down the threet!
Am I the only one who noticed that someone replaced their regular tree with a cat-scratching post?
Hah! I thought the same thing! The top is just a *really* big teaser toy!
Take the picture, man, so we can get back to the saloon prom.
LOL!!! After that the photographer said, “Say Cheese!” and the girl said, “Whatever, just take the *(#*(# picture”
His tux style matched his hair.
Ahhh, the 1988 ‘Whispering Heights School for the Blind’ prom, epic night.
haha! love the subcaption!
their futures were so bright, they had to wear shades?
Is he wearing Zaphod’s Peril Sensitive Sunglasses? I think he should be afraid, very afraid.
Exactly! And that cummerbund is really his towel.
No pin-on corsage for this boy; take the safe wrist arrangement for safety!
“I wear my sunglasses at night, I wear my sunglasses at night…”
Haa, my thoughts exactly!!
What is that on the shelf above their heads? A bronzed duck? A bronzed hockey skate?
Thats a bronzed statue of a football player diving for the touchdown….or maybe it is a duck…
I think it is a seal…facing the wall.
I think it’s a bronzed seal
I think it’s a person on a rock with their right leg straight out behind, and their right arm raised and bent.
It’s a man protecting his face from the glare of something. The Sun? Their awesomeness maybe?
I think it’s an awkward bronze nude or nudes to match the “brothel” theme in the decor. Was this the after prom site?
its a statue of a man holding up an olympic torch.
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?”
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.
“We’re just too cool for our own lives.”
fancy decor! gold frame, bronze statue..
kids, this is what an 80s mullet looked like!
where were they during the mullet contest?
Somebody water that plant, stat!
It’s a bloom of the pompas plant. looks ‘wilty’ huh!
Finding that mystery Bronze up in the corner behind them a bit disturbing, too????
Yeah, what is that, a barking seal?
What about that dead plant next to her?
I, personally find the matching wallpaper and carpet awkward! Perhaps the sunglasses were to protect their eyes from all of that red Brocade???
Was their prom held at the local Elks Lodge or VFW? Her sunglasses look like ones women wore in the 1950’s
LOL! Your titles and photo descriptions always crack me up.
That looks EXACTLY like my cousin did in about 1990…? I think it IS him.
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.
“Now give me surly.”
Haha my sister has glasses exactly like the girl in there except hers are prescriptions, not shades…
Is she blind?
