Brave Teen Asks Miss America to Prom, Ends Up Suspended

We’d be hard-pressed to blame anyone for asking Miss America (otherwise known as Nina Davuluri) on a date — but, then again, we’re not high-school administrators tasked with keeping legions of teens in order. The Associated Press reports that when Patrick Farves, a Pennsylvania senior, used the question-and-answer portion of Davuluri’s appearance at Central York High School to invite her to prom and present her with a plastic flower, the adults in charge were less than amused. For his chivalry, the 18-year-old was slapped with three days of in-school suspension “for breaking rules” (he was warned not to pull a stunt like this ahead of time). On the plus side, this probably also earned him some pretty awesome yearbook entries from his peers. No word yet on whether Davuluri accepted his offer.
