"I'm So Drunk... On Great Memories! Warwick High Prom 2009"

To help shake off the awkward photograph and the interminable slow dances, prom organizers at a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania high school handed out more than 400 commemorative shot glasses to junior and senior prom-goers earlier this month. 

The buzz started at Warwick High School, which held its prom on May 2. Several adults served on a prom committee that ultimately made the decision to go with shot glasses as a parting gift, according to WGAL-Pennsylvania. It's safe to assume we can thank one of the adults for putting a disciplinarian foot down over the idea of also handing out lime wedges and packets of salt.

According to WGAL-Pennsylvania, Warwick High assistant principal Scott Galen called the  decision to go with the shot glasses an "oversight" and described the committee's thought process as a hasty one: "OK, this is what we have money for. Let's just do it." Rest easy, moms and dads. "Let's Just Do It" wasn't emblazoned on the glasses.
