  4. MB says:

    LOLZ… too bad dad forgot deodarant so after this everyone fell over. I feel sorry 4 the kid at the bottom

  5. Family Member says:

    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!

    • MissLonelyHearts says:

      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.

  6. Larry N says:

    If you don’t know about the marker it looks like the family that plays together stays together.

  7. RedCrossDude says:

    The Awkwards on Vacation!

  8. Frank says:

    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.

  9. Double D says:

    I’ve pissed right there!

  10. Roweena says:

    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.

  11. John D. Fay says:

    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

    The Aristocrats!

  13. M says:

    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.

  14. Nobody says:

    The family poses on the world’s biggest Twister mat…

  15. Sarah says:

    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….. :)

  16. Tim says:

    The WIlkersons typically “assume the position” when asked by passersby, “Where you from?”

  17. Lynn says:

    This isn’t that strange if you know where they are.. all of them are in all 4 states which is kinda cool haha

  18. sandifay says:

    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.

  19. Thomass says:

    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!

    • Rich says:

      If the marker ends up on another Indian tribe’s land, … there’s gonna be some pretty pissed-off Indians!

  20. Maria says:

    four states at once !!!!

  21. 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?

  22. Sean Buzzard says:

    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.

  23. Sean Buzzard says:

    His left leg’s really long.

    And denim.

  24. stringbean says:

    FALL FALL!

  25. That’s not a crossbow – it’s a compound bow !!

  26. wakeupwithflem says:

    omg … this is one of my favorites !

  27. phelim says:

    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

  28. Moe says:

    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!

  29. Jewelsgrl says:

    Truth be known, they are actually a family of starfish.

  30. Lella says:

    Oh my god – why would you do that?!

  31. Mike says:

    This is a great photo. Not awkward at all. That looks like a family having fun.

  32. KAYSiE NiCKOlE says:

    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.

  33. cinndave says:

    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.

  34. Mr. Redundant says:

    That’s hilarious! And it’s even funnier because the four corner’s monument isn’t even in the right place!

  35. Major Danger says:

    I peed there.

  36. Bill in Houston says:

    The Cruise family poses at Xenu’s landing site.

  37. jack-on-the-rox says:

    Git er done!

  38. Chris says:

    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.

  39. Melony says:

    What’s even funnier is that memorial site, the 4 Corners site, is actually about 2 miles off the actual site. Even more awkward.

  40. PixelFish says:

    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.

  41. Kira says:

    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”

  42. LaLaWojo says:

    Isn’t that Larry the Cable Guy?

  43. Able Stanton says:

    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?

  44. frunkis says:

    aren’t you glad you use dial?

  45. damn says:

    Can you imagine being the passerby that took this photo?

  46. Rebecca says:

    Best part of it all: This isn’t even the official ‘four corners’ anymore!!!

  47. Jay Schiavone says:

    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…

  48. Heather says:

    ahhhh the ol’ K swiss tennys with jean capris. So classy.

  49. SC says:

    Too bad the 4 corners monument is in the wrong place:

    • Dawn says:

      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!

  50. M says:

    Which state will get the jurisdiction for the “inappropriate touching” charges that followed?

  51. 4fun says:

    Where?
    4 Corners.
    Google image it.

    …or shovel out a few bucks & make the drive. ;)

  52. Clayton says:

    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!

  53. mers says:

    ha ha that is too funny, totally had not noticed him before this comment!

  54. Jewelsgrl says:

    I was about to say this. Well done!

  55. Karla says:

    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.

  56. VicPanic says:

    can you imagine being one of the passersby IN this photo?

  57. Michelle B says:

    Awww, that’s cute – okay, everyone say cheessssseee.

  58. Sean Buzzard says:

    Okay…
    So are you from Utah, Colorado, New Mexico or Arizona?

  59. Sean Buzzard says:

    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.

  60. Sean Buzzard says:

    Yes.
    Wrong picture, but yes.
    Totally different thing. Thankyou.
