This past weekend, many 17- and 18-year-old high schoolers put on their Sunday best and went out for a long-time rite of passage.
Of course, some were met with some humiliating and humorous turn-of-events, from unusual (or torn, or stained) attire choices to awkward photos to displaced DJ selections.
In typical internet fashion, many prom-goers took to Twitter to share their most embarrassing and hilarious moments from what was meant to be one of the greatest nights of their lives.
