We may never know what led Ibrahim Ahmad to think wearing a fake bomb to school was OK. The high school senior at La Center High School thought this day would be like any other: trig class, a pop quiz or two, strap a fake bomb on and ask a girl to prom, then lunch. The usual.

Unfortunately, the school administrators did not think it was funny at all. He was suspended for five days, and is now forbidden from attending the prom. He seemed to take it in stride on Twitter however:

He also said it "kind of felt racist" when the school suspended him but only after saying "I'm Middle Eastern, and I thought the bomb was kind of funny and clever." I'm not really sure you can make a racist joke and then claim other people are racist when you suffer actual consequences, but OK.

The administrators claimed it may have made an unsafe learning environment for other students. They were right. Here's the actual event taking place where you can hear nearly three people at the school who care about what's going on:

The most surprising part of the story? She said yes! Congrats you two. For the record: getting banned from prom is way more fun than actually attending prom. Enjoy these days while you can!
