For students not interested in the traditional prom experience, the Pflugerville Public Library's "Anti-Prom" offers an alternative.

But this year one small typo almost made the event a whole lot different than anyone might have expected.


Rose Cobb, 33, the marketing specialist for the Pflugerville Public Library in Texas "didn't think too much of it" when she noticed a typo in the announcement for the library's Anti-Prom event written in the Community Impact newspaper.

"The theme of the night is 'Fairy Tales'", the description read.

"There will be a DJ, snakes, and a photo booth."

"At first I just thought, 'Oh, they mean snacks,'" Cobb told Buzzfeed News.

To Cobb's surprise though once the announcement got around more than one person started wondering about the event's reptilian guest list.

"I know it sounds weird — we are kind of forward thinking with our programming," Cobb said.

"So I figured that this one mistake might actually cause some real confusion in our community."

So the library had to issue an unexpected and hilarious correction.


Much to the disappointment of students the library set the record straight on social media Monday, letting them know there would not in fact be any snakes at Anti-Prom.

"ATTENTION - there will be no snakes at this Friday's Anti Prom at the library."
"There was a typo in a local paper that said we will have snakes."
"We will have snacks. Snacks is what we will have."

Some people were totally behind the whole "snakes" idea though.

After all, what could be more "Anti-Prom" than a bunch of snakes?




Even though snakes were officially off the invite list, the library did seem willing to make at least one exception.

But while Anti-Prom will be a snake free event, the library pointed out that snakes will be in attendance during their Teen De-Stressing Day: Reptile Hangout on May 22nd.

Meanwhile library director Jennifer Coffey is grateful for all the attention caused by the comical typo since it's a chance to highlight events like Anti-Prom, aimed at creating safe, inclusive spaces for students.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrescendoX asked the online community,

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
