After getting a look at John Krasinski's prom photo, we asked for your embarrassing prom pictures. And, boy, were you people some awesomely awkward teens! We got lots of great submissions, and here are the best of the worst.
These are all bad for so many different reasons: the fashion is outdated, the interactions are awkward, or the subjects are trying to display their fledgling individuality so hard that it turned the corner into craziness.
Here are all the honorable mentions. Everyone has been awarded a star (if they didn't have one already) for their pain and suffering. Click on the commenter's name to see the original picture.
All of those are pretty bad, but there is only one picture that could beat them all. Yes, it is sort of sad, embarrassing, funny, amazing, and unforgettable all at the same time. Here is your winner "The Sad Goths" by Tetherette.
Congratulations, Tetherette, you won a $50 Olive Garden gift card. Email me to claim your prize. Thanks to everyone for submitting, and I hope you've all gotten new hairstyles since these pictures were taken.
