    Good evening,

    I'm sure there are quite a few proms flying about and we have decided to give out some fun and some serious awards to hand out after dinner.

    Some of these include;

    Most likely to marry a footballer
    Most likely to be prime minister
    Most likely to get sacked form their first job in the first week because they've been late 5 times!
    The 'I can't believe you made it 5 years without getting kicked out' award
    The 'outstanding pupil' award

    As well as prom king / queen and teacher king / queen etc but thought I'd see if any of you guys could come up with a few funnier one's?

    Cheers.

  3. unless everyone gets one, I wouldn't bother.
     
  4. "George Michael Award" for the boy who seems to be permanently hanging round the toilets (for whatever reason).
     
  5. our kids decide and vote on their own awards, often quite entertaining
     
  6. What about the ones who get nothing. Not very nice end of school...That was the reason for my last post but was on phone and couldn't type properly.
     
  7. Our kids have plumped for:

    Most likely to...
    - Be a footballer
    - Be Prime Minister
    - Be Famous
    - Be a Pop Star

    Biggest...
    - Flirt
    - Wind-Up
    - Prankster Prince
    - Prankster Princess

    And then an "All Round Nice Guy" and "All Round Nice Girl" (they didn't want Prom King and Queen as they thought it was too mean and exclusive...bless!)

    The prizes are all things to do with the award, so the "Famous" one is a mock Award (from a party shop), some dark glasses to hide from the paparazzi, and a memo block that says "famous" on it, so they can dish out autographs easily! We're also putting the winners (who only I know, bwaha) in the Yearbook.

    (Shame good old Miss Pleugh has had to sort out gathering votes, buying prizes, doing the Yearbook as Year 11s have ******** off...)

    Then what about making it more fun by giving each of the kids a raffle ticket as they enter, then using the categories you have mentioned, call out a raffle number and the person who has that number is the person most likely to...whatever

    All totally random.

    It may be that the toughest kid in year 11 is most likely to...become a world famous ballet dancer.

    Why are you even having a prom?

    The person most likely to exhibit telekinetic skills...

    How about an award for the person, not necessarily a pupil, most likely to use a superfluous apostrophe?

    Just realised how old this thread is! Those year 11s will now be 26 or 27.

    I hate this Americanised prom nonsense.

    I wonder what posters are searching for exactly when they resurrect these long dead threads :D.

    Maybe one of the award recipients actually did marry a footballer or become a pop star, and graces the front/back of the sort of papers we probably don't buy. Did the OP keep a note at the time?

    Just what I was thinking. A total waste of money for parents and excuse for bad behaviour...

    What do you do, calamansi, to find all these old threads?

    I'm sure there was something in the press last year about inappropriate awards being given out.

    Agreed.

    That said, how about 'Most likely to behave like Carrie before the evening ends'?

    Perhaps I'm being pedantic to point out that the Netiquette section of the Forum House Rules pinned to the head of this forum says:
    • Don’t revive or resurrect old threads. Bumping up historic content often diverts attention from new and current queries and makes it hard for people to follow the old topic or enquiry, which has probably been resolved.

    @florian gassmann
    If you run a forum search against something you'd like to say, and if you get a hit on something 11 years ago, and your mind tells you today is 2017 like it always gets it wrong for the first few days of the new year, and you then see a date which is the same apart from one digit, and misread it because you are human, and you still have the search results on screen instead of the actual current boards but don't realise you never changed it back, then you're not going to check the month or date in small print below....this could be you. Because you're human.
    And if you are a regular poster who obviously knows the forum rules, why on earth would somebody else need to cite forum rules to you?

    It amuses me that @calamansi was clearly at the end of a "fun evening"-wee small hours, utterly sozzled,thinking about partying, prizes...and wanted to share that ......with us!
    So humbling!

    I did nothing deliberately to resurrect an old thread. Sometimes when I post on my phone I get confused by the formatting.

    Wotthehell. I still can't understand this alien prom stuff.
