This won't end well for whoever gets voted Prom Tsar and Tsarina.
At a high school in Albuquerque, NM, seniors have voted to have communism-themed prom, aka "prom-unism." In the news report from area station KRQE, senior Sarah Zachary notes, "We have a lot of jokesters in our grade." But many are reportedly finding the idea offensive. While the school hasn't completely shot down the idea yet, they are planning to have some discussions with students before confirming the prom's theme.
I love prom-unism for two reasons that have nothing to do with politics. First of all, I love it when dumb wordplay jokes become actual things. Secondly, the students are having their prom at an aquarium. No matter what. Which means that they would have to decorate an aquarium with a communism theme.
Also, in 2015, this overlay of binary is the transition that news station KRQE still uses when talking about doing things online, and I love them for it:
