The Smiths' Pre-Rapture Dance Party: Five Truly Awful Prom Themes

Tomorrow night is Tinley Park High School's prom, "A Red Carpet Affair." Here are some themes you're glad they didn't go with.

Tomorrow night is Tinley Park High School's 2011 senior prom, "A Red Carpet Affair."

Great theme for a prom. Very classy, fun and such. Makes kids feel like the rock stars they are. That is a very cool prom theme.

These five aren't.

PRE-RAPTURE DANCE PARTY 2011

Prom is a night you'll remember for the rest of your life, which, according to Christian radio host Harold Camping, should be about a day.

Yes, according to Camping, the Rapture will be on Saturday. So depending on which time zone the End of Days starts in, it could come mid-dance for the Titans prom.

Granted, Camping also predicted the Apocalypse in 1994, but this time he double-checked the math, got out the slide ruler and, he says, totally nailed it on the make-up test.

On the plus side, at least you won't have to clean up after the dance.

"GIRLFRIEND IN A COMA"

Great song, but I know, it's serious.

Pro: Everything will be really opulent and covered in gold.

Con: They'll make you present your birth certificate before you get in, then not believe you when you do. Plus, about 10 minutes in, they'll decide they don't want to host a prom after all.
