Thank GOD non-American kids hate the idea of elaborate promposals as much as the rest of us.
At some point, the idea of going to prom with a significant other became almost as important as finding a partner for life, settling down, raising kids and then dying in the same bed together years later in the same night, like in “The Notebook.”
This is nuts.
Proms mean nothing. There is a good chance you'll forget where you went to high school by your second year of college, let alone whom you went to prom with.
Now, I don't know if prom is a thing outside of our great country, but elaborate prom proposals 100 percent aren't. Kids outside of the USA have other things to worry about, like *does a quick Google* how they feel about British Prime Minister David Cameron and *does second Google search* Iran.
The Twitter trend of making fun of American prom proposals is perfect. Grade-A work, non-Americans!
"MOM! IT HAPPENED! DANNY ASKED ME!"
"I've been dreaming of this day for a lifetime, Danny."
"Yes! Yes! A million times yes, Danny!"
"I'm the luckiest girl in the entire world, Danny!"
"AHHHH! THIS IS JUST HOW I IMAGINED IT WOULD HAPPEN, DANNY!"
"I'll remember this day for the rest of my life, Danny."
Non-USA kids > USA kids by a landslide on this one.
