Ah, prom. An exciting and terrifying rite of passage for high schoolers all over the country. And along with the headache that comes with finding the right limo, the right restaurant, the right right dress, and the right tux, there's that overwhelming pressure of finding a great prom date. The lucky prom-goers with a boyfriend or girlfriend don't have to worry at all. Others have their dreams come true when their crush actually says yes. But for the unluckiest kids, the only two realistic choices are: cousin or cardboard. Strange as it may sound, we’re about explore the bizarre world of people who brought inanimate objects as their prom dates.
Get ready to meet a group of kids who let their freak flag fly when they showed up at their prom toting everything from cardboard cutouts of hunky celebrities to video games and a large plastic fish? You may laugh, but at least they didn't have to dance the night away alone.
Perhaps they people on this list thought a fake Tim Tebow was the closest thing to a dream prom date they could hope for. Maybe some of these people who brought inanimate objects as prom dates thought it would be a great joke (and a good way to distract from their loneliness). Though we may never know exactly what was going through their heads, we can at least enjoy their creativity.
