Genius Teen Boys Create Systematic Way to Rank Girls for Prom Dates


If we have learned a single thing from teen movies, the teenager population is obsessed with tidy, efficient organizational schemes. They show this love by crowning prom queens, creating intricate cafeteria setups, or maybe designating some sort of outdoor territorial arrangement. These teens crave order, so that they can mitigate their lack of control regarding adolescence.

Anyway, some teenage boys in Southern California created an NFL-style drafting system to systematically select prom dates. 

Select males at the Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach, California, have employed the draft to be sure that the proper pecking order is observed. Pecking orders are the key factor in picking prom dates. Geniuses of socializing, these young men posted their results on Twitter, which seems to be the root of how they got into trouble. They wrote things like:

Many drafters on the prowl tomorrow for #freeagents so dress nice ladies.

Sounds like a helpful hint. Hope everyone gets their dream date! Have a great time, kids. This is the stuff memories are made of.
