Prom Invite Turns Into Bomb Threat

Prom Invite Turns Into Bomb Threat

By Jennifer Grudziecki

In hilarious high school news, some poor guy caused mass panic by asking a girl to a dance. In St. George, Utah, a guy sent the girl he was hoping to ask on a treasure hunt...unfortunately, the final step in the treasure hunt involved leaving a box marked "Army" near a church gazebo.

The Utah bomb squad rushed to the church, closed off the area, and opened the suspicious package, only to find candy and an invite to a dance. Of course, now we have to wonder: did she say yes? Would you?

Have you ever had an invitation go wrong?
