Yes, that's right – a mortifyingly meddling mother has posted an advert looking for a date for her son on everyone's favourite second-hand-sofa site, Gumtree.
The post, placed under 'Jobs' in the Cambridge area, states she is 'looking for a female student partner on May Ball Cambridge'.
The mother then goes on to explain that her son is 'fully occupied' with his studies, so she is 'helping' (yeah, right) to find him a date.
A Pennsylvania high school student is in hot water for asking Miss America to prom during a question and answer session at school.
Eighteen-year-old Patrick Farves said he received three days of in-school suspension Thursday because he asked Nina Davuluri to prom.
The senior at Central York High School stood up and popped the prom question, then walked to the stage with a plastic flower. Davuluri just laughed and the students cheered.
