The one thing I think when I see stories like this is, did they go ahead and still take the posed prom pictures like normal, all soaked and presumably creepy looking?

Bith Set Me Up: It's April. Isn't June prom season?


Why would it be, graduation is in may in most places.  you tend to have prom a few weeks/month before, so the kids can study for finals and such that last month.

Ah prom, trying desperately to get to second base, with a squeaky voice and bad acne. Thankfully I'm less pathetic now spamming for BIE in fark threads and trying to offload WIE where nobody wants it.

Prom is about a month before graduation where I grew up in CA.

Study for whatwhat? What for finals? What for whatwhat???

I assume you meant "so principals can still threaten to cancel graduation if there are too many drunken shenanigans at prom".

How many heifers did they think that bridge was going to hold?

And despite several ruined tuxedos, sodden prom dresses and a few waterlogged mobile phones, the teenagers remained in high spirits and certainly had a prom to remember.

Sure, everybody's in high spirits and laughing right up until the tuxedo rental shop bills the wearers for the ruined tuxedos.  Then the parents will turn on the owner of the property that had the bridge on it.  This is how America will collapse.

It was okay for horses and golf karts, but they put the load all on one side. I'd need pics of the footings, but I suspect they're minimum. But a little slippage and there's nothing holding down the other side.

It's fairly obvious what happened: kids all got on one side of the bridge and it rolled, dumping them in the drink.  Could have been prevented by tie-downs on the main longitudinal members at whatever supporting foundations were present.

Bridge wasn't rickety, it just wasn't properly secured.

The key is to always keep your cool and act with aplomb. A few years ago some buddies and I took a sailing trip through the Chesapeake Bay. Ten days on a sailboat and there was a LOT of alcohol consumed. One night we anchored off a small crab bar and were going to take the dinghy to shore. Since it was a nice place, we all put on our suits to have a nice night out on the town. But as we're climbing into the little boat, I slipped and fell (ok, there was alcohol involved) into the water. Instead of sputtering and freaking out, I did the backstroke to the dock, climbed out wearing my very soggy suit, asked the hostess for a table for six, and asked a pair of ladies sitting nearby to join us. There was polite applause and we really ended up having a great time that night.

Stay cool and carry on, no matter how great the failure. If you can suffer indignity with grace and style, there's nothing you can't do.

Right you are.  Those are some husky farm boys who were on the bridge ... husky and lusty farm boys ... well endowed husky and lusty farm boys, if you get my drift.  They certainly had enough longitudinal members to connect to new foundations.

I loved proms.  Got my first beej at junior prom.  Senior prom was, well, even better.  Chicks seemed to really get turned on by a guy in a tux.  At least the ones I dated.  Ahhh - good times - then college.  Whole new world opened up there....
