Best Example of the Square Peg Rule

Geek Prom
Square pegs might be misfits, but they’re also more interesting and better organized than anybody gave them credit for back in high school. (The "Square Peg Rule," which we just made up, is that the squarer and weirder the kid, the cooler the adult.) And finally, last year, we got a full-on example of just how cool prom might have been if the cheerleaders and football players with their pathetic traditions had been swept aside in favor of the almighty geeks with their press kits, early morning television appearances, Web sites, and bank of celebrity geek/judges. Geekdom has truly come to full flower, and who knew that Duluth would be their capital city?
