In Pennsauken, New Jersey, a teenager made a very tasteless entrance to her junior prom.
Megan Flaherty, a 17 year old high school student has dreams of becoming a funeral director, so she surprised her classmates by showing up to prom in a hearse and an open prop coffin.
Flaherty though that her idea was a fun and fresh was to arrive at her prom, where she was hoping to have a great time. She even said that her date was completely into the idea of his date arriving in a coffin. Talk about unresolved psychological issues!
Flaherty rode in the back of a hearse, laying down in a coffin the whole time. Upon her arrival, she was slid out of the hearse with the help of the driver and her date.
She stepped out of her coffin, slipped her hand into her date’s hand, and smiled as people gawped at her stupidity.
Some people think that her entrance was “drop dead gorgeous,” but the majority of people find her stunt tasteless and insensitive.
