  1. Nascar rules! I just wish that Dale was doing better this year.

  2. Brian Vidot says:

    Someone should nickname you “Mr. Epic”

  3. MollyW. says:

    Haha! This is my family.

    They are not real estate agents. This photo was taken in 2004 so it is a bit dated. :) It is very funny to see all the comments. No one would know that they all grew up on a farm in a small town in Minnesota (some still continue to farm).

    Also, no one in the family is named Mary, Bob or Robert.

  4. BV says:

    I think all the women’s names are bob too and they are just using they’re middle names for the photo.

  5. Leghound says:

    I guess the mother doesn,t still dress the boys.They look professional

    good morning guests of NorthWest Airlines; Robert will be your pilot today and myself, Mary, Mary, Bob, Bob, and Bob will be here to assist you at any time during transport; Simply press the yellow flight attendant button above and to the left:

    It is currently 60 degrees and cloudy in the SEA-TAC airport- and our expected arrival time is 20:30. Shortly Bob and Mary will be stopping by with bevrages and peanuts while Mary and Bob will be passing out headphones and pillows.

    Can’t you just see this family 30 yrs ago when Mom controled their wardrobe?? As it is, I can hear (and see) the instructions she gave to everyone “Now girls, you need to where black & red. And boys, make SURE you wear suits. WITH TIES!!!” Except Mary #2 got it backwards… must have driven Mom nuts!!!!!!

  8. MissJenny says:

  17. mountainmama says:

    I think its so funny no one has mentioned how hysterical it is that the 2 people on the far right (the funny looking guy & woman) names are given as “Mary and Bob” respectively. LMAO!

  18. Deuce says:

    Do we have Mary? Check, check, check, check. Do we have Bob? Check, check, check….um…oh, and one Robert?

    Whew, we’re good to go.

  30. JoJo says:

  31. Ya-huh. says:

  34. Tom A. says:

    Would you like some pretzels or a pillow, sir?”

  35. Donna says:

    “….and Robert.” That is way too funny!!!! I can’t believe people don’t get it! C’mon….they are generic people with generic names! Hysterical!

  36. Adriel says:

    I agree, Judy. Why is Robert not Bob?

  37. me says:

    this picture is not awkward. what’s the deal.

  38. Intelligence required says:

    Where is the awkwardness?

  39. Vod says:

    Um…..they are all named Mary or Bob because you are a dumbass?

  40. T says:

    whyyyyyyy are all their names Mary or Bob??

    • Danica says:

      Um… I think that was just a joke. All the people seem to have similar, plain attitudes, so the poster gave them similar, plain names in the caption.

  41. judy says:

    what did robert do, to be called by his full name?

  42. TDC923 says:

    The man middle left is the only one with a dark savage tan

  43. Cazart says:

    Yeah, but I bet they’re Number One On The Westside! So suck it.

  44. Hehe says:

    Check out grandma, she’s the most stylish one in the picture :)

  45. TITS says:

    You have to know they all work in real estate. The jackets are a dead give away.

  46. Oy Vey says:

    They all appear to be real estate agents, based on their… erm… fashion.

  47. Grk! says:

    Not sure that red stripey jacket suits Robert.

  48. Kitty says:

    Yes! I wanna see a Jim/Helen pic now!

  49. painandlight says:

    Robert always did march to the beat of a different drummer, you know…

  50. Rachel says:

    I agree, not awkward- just dated.

  51. Nona Yerbiz says:
