Git yer armpit offfa ma face!
LOLZ… too bad dad forgot deodarant so after this everyone fell over. I feel sorry 4 the kid at the bottom
This family is from Colorado, and had no idea that someone other then them took this picture. There are very upset that it was published on the internet. I don’t think people should post other peoples pictures without permission. They were on vacation and having fun, like all families should be!
That’s a bit selfish. What about the viewers? We are all sad lonely people surfing the net looking for pictures of other people to laugh at and make us feel better about our pathetic lives, as all sad, lonely people should. It feels even better when it looks like a healthy, normal family who like each other and have good, clean fun together.
If you don’t know about the marker it looks like the family that plays together stays together.
The Awkwards on Vacation!
Actually, if you read the MSNBC linked article it says that it IS the proper four corners because, although they market it wrong over a 100 years ago, all 4 states have adopted it is as the legal boundary.
I’ve pissed right there!
That’s a bit gross… the dad’s armpit is right near the mom’s face. Yum.
And yes, I agree, it was most probably the dad that suggested the pose they take.
It’s been closer at least 3 times.
The four corners monument is not off. It is legally at that spot. There is quite a difference between GPS and Cadastral surveying. Cadastral defines Legal boundaries and cannot be changed with out an act of Congress. Four corners was surveyed from the Washington Meridian. GPS is based on the calculated center of the Earth. Look at New Mexico’s East boundry with Texas and Oklahoma. It was supposed to be the 103rd meridian, it is with Oklahoma, but not with Texas and New Mexico has been fighting it for over 140 years, they lost 600,000. acres
No offense dude, but who cares?
Evedently, he does. As well as all of the people who keep posting about where four corners actually is. I thought it was prudent to the discussion.
Pertinent… but not prudent…
It’s pretty near Mesa Verde park which is a really cool place to go. So it’s not really in the middle of nowhere with nothing else to see.
The family poses on the world’s biggest Twister mat…
Yeah, but did anyone realize that the site isn’t even the REAL 4 corners anymore?!?!?!?!?! I felt it needed to be said one more time…..
The WIlkersons typically “assume the position” when asked by passersby, “Where you from?”
This isn’t that strange if you know where they are.. all of them are in all 4 states which is kinda cool haha
They don’t even know about the 4 corners, it could be Disneyland for all they care. They just like doing this. They should stop. But they won’t.
It’s too bad that isn’t the right place…to touch all 4 states, the marker is going to be moved in 2010. They have to repost the photo next year!
If the marker ends up on another Indian tribe’s land, … there’s gonna be some pretty pissed-off Indians!
four states at once !!!!
It’s 4 corners! Then you can be in 4 States at the same time! ummm, I had no idea that the monument was actually not in the real place. Maybe the gov did that on purpose so it was harder for criminals to find out where they crossed the state lines?
What’s even funnier are all the comments about the four corners being off, and nobody even noticng that it’s been said 10 times already.
His left leg’s really long.
That’s not a crossbow – it’s a compound bow !!
omg … this is one of my favorites !
we tried to do something like this monument in northern ireland where 5 of th counties touch but it sank and fermanagh felt left out. still dont see any high winds…………….., probably coming form the wee fella at the bottom
I live in New Mexico, about an hour away from the 4 corners and this is one of many pictures like this. It’s totally awesome to be in 4 states at once!
Truth be known, they are actually a family of starfish.
Oh my god – why would you do that?!
So you can say that you were in four states at once. (Even if you were actually two miles off !)
This is a great photo. Not awkward at all. That looks like a family having fun.
yeah i guess were all gonna just BLOW OFF the fact that the little boy underneath looks like hes going to pass out any second now from the 400+ pounds squishing him alive.
That place is lame-o central. Leave it off your Grand Canyon trip. You drive all the way out to the middle of nowhere, spend 5 minutes taking pictures on this thing, buy a Navajo bracelet, then leave. When we got there I’m glad I refused to get my picture taken there.
That’s hilarious! And it’s even funnier because the four corner’s monument isn’t even in the right place!
I peed there.
The Cruise family poses at Xenu’s landing site.
Git er done!
What’s even funnier are all the comments about the four corners being off and nobody even noticing that it’s been said 10 times already.
What’s even funnier is that memorial site, the 4 Corners site, is actually about 2 miles off the actual site. Even more awkward.
It says, “Under God” and it IS the Four Corners monument. The state seals and markers are the round things off to the side. The words around the circle read “Four States” (Utah side) “Here Meet” (Colorado side) “In Freedom” (New Mexico side) “Under God” (Arizona side). You can google for bigger pics. There’s one more little plaque in the middle.
It is the four corners. That corner says “Under God” The state names are further out, but on that circle it says, “four states, here meet, in freedom, under god”
Isn’t that Larry the Cable Guy?
I assumed that it was the “Four Corners,” too – and thought about the recent news story.
But that ISN’T the “Four Corners.” It is someplace else entirely. Look at the two word corner at the lower-left. Those two words aren’t “New Mexico.”
Where was this photo taken?
aren’t you glad you use dial?
Can you imagine being the passerby that took this photo?
Best part of it all: This isn’t even the official ‘four corners’ anymore!!!
Funny story: the Four Corners attraction (why would anyone be anywhere near that location?) is sited two miles away from the actual geographic location of the meeting of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado, aas determined by satellite mapping. Visitors to the middle of nowhere love to pose at an arbitrary location. Talk about waiting for Godot…
ahhhh the ol’ K swiss tennys with jean capris. So classy.
Too bad the 4 corners monument is in the wrong place:
So, does this mean they’ll have to go back and recreate the image once the monument is moved to it’s correct place? Yikes!
Which state will get the jurisdiction for the “inappropriate touching” charges that followed?
This comment is almost better than the photo.
Google image it.
…or shovel out a few bucks & make the drive.
It’s right up there with the Geographical Center of North America in Rugby, ND. Due to the tides, the geographical center of North America is always moving. Doesn’t prevent them from having a monument!
ha ha that is too funny, totally had not noticed him before this comment!
I was about to say this. Well done!
I agree the only time I’ve ever had that much fun taking a picture with my family is when my mom was taking a picture while my bother and sister and me did the head scratch flicking you off without her realizing it.
can you imagine being one of the passersby IN this photo?
Awww, that’s cute – okay, everyone say cheessssseee.
So are you from Utah, Colorado, New Mexico or Arizona?
Yeah, and funnier still, are all the comments about the four corners being off and nobody even noticing that it’s been said 10 times already.
Wrong picture, but yes.
Totally different thing. Thankyou.
