A Washington high school student thought he was “the bomb,” so he decided to strap a fake one on to his body to ask a girl to prom.

Bad idea.

Ibrahim Ahmad was suspended for 5 days after he showed up in the cafeteria dressed like a suicide bomber, and as a result he can’t even go to prom anymore.

The costume consisted of red tubes and wires attached to a paintball vest, and he was holding a sign that read: “I kno it’s A little Late, But I’m kinda…THE BOMB! Rilea, Will U Be My Date To Prom?”

He told The Columbian that he was pressured into doing it.

“In ‘promposals,’ you’re supposed to go big,” he said. “It’s kind of a trending thing now, too, where everyone just asks in a really creative way.”

Ahmad also said wonders if the school only punished because he is Middle Eastern, and he thinks that any other student probably wouldn’t have faced the same consequences.

The superintendent released this statement to KPTV:

Our administrators and staff are committed to creating learning environments where all students are safe and parents feel comfortable sending their children to school. Given all that is going on in the world today, even simulated weapons/devices can undermine our collective efforts to create a safe school and therefore are handled with appropriate disciplinary actions.

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.
