    Not much to celebrate here…

  2. Madeline says:

    Can’t you see the happiness in her face?

  3. Abby says:

    I know the girl in this photo, and her mom decided that this photo needed to go on their fridge. Not even joking.

  4. Confused says:

    I dont get why its funny :( ???

    • Alifre says:

      It’s funny if you know the girls (which I do) and it wasn’t supposed to be creepy, it was supposed to be a joyful event.

  5. Andrew says:

    Reminds me of “The Amityville Horror”

  6. Phil says:

    It’s Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona!”

  7. Ryan says:

    This is now my Facebook profile picture. I honestly couldn’t help myself. It’s just too haunting and darkly beautiful.

    • Janine says:

      Lol oh my gosh! Hilarious you made this your FB pic! That was my thought to when I saw this one too.Its so creepy but I cannot stop laughing at it!

      • Cynthia says:

        My first thought also was to make it my facebook profile pic. There are so many stories in this photo and it is darkly beautiful. The real story is probably not as interesting as this image…

    Even the scratches on the door freak me out!!! What has happened at this house!!!

  9. LamontCranston says:

    Tonight on “Ghosthunters,” Jason and Grant crap their pants…

  10. ashman says:

    This photo tells a story… brilliant

  11. MAC Daddy says:

    See the girl in the window? Well I have captured her mind and it is inside of this cake. I will soon possess your mind as well, when the clock strikes 14. Now I want you to focus on the cake. You are feeling sleepy, and your eyelids are very, very heavy…..

  12. Pat says:

    Wow, right out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo!!
    What a great warped photo!

  13. OMG... says:

    Qu’est-ce que c’est?

  14. Trotty says:

    I came. I saw. I screamed. And then I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants.

  15. freshjive says:

    The girl in the window is creepy. It’s something you’d see on Ghost Hunters. Or in a horror movie.

  16. rebecca says:

    We call her “Wednesday ” The Adams Family Birthday Party .. “Rain, rain, go away . Come again another day … ” My favorite part of this photo is the claw marks on the door .

  17. TJt says:

    Her right hand…. it’s not real.

  18. Mark says:

    “You don’t want to hurt anyone, Samara…”

    “But I do… and I’m sorry. I can’t make it stop.”

  19. zukimac says:

    After looking at this, I can honestly say I am now grateful for my childhood. Nothing that ever happened to me could compare to this moment that has been captured in time. YIKES!

  20. Pierre says:

    Every two weeks we unlock Bogomila’s door and feed her a cake.

  21. Kate says:

    This picture will be forever ingrained in my mind! I absolutely love it!

  22. S13558 says:

    It’s very reminiscent of a post-modern surrealist photo….and yes, the fingers in the frosting is a nice touch.

  23. JD says:

    I like it. Immensely. Calls to mind Diane Arbus.

  24. chris gilmore says:

    LOOKS LIKE AN ARBUS PHOTO

  25. Morgan says:

    God, that looks like a freaking ghost or something (can ghosts eat cake?). Thanks, I wanted to look at these pics before bed but will probably get nightmares about gravity defying cake decorations and sulky ghosts with sugar cravings.

  26. Carol says:

    creepy! Whoever said this would be a good photo for a creative writing paper was right on.

  27. Flim Springfield says:

    I think it’s a great emotional image. Perhaps, not the intent of the subjects, but artistic nevertheless.

  28. kayla says:

    tessa,
    really,
    are you serious.
    the picture was kind of starting to freak me out!!!

  29. Shannon says:

    Is that really a girl holding the cake or are they celebrating the transition to the transition?

  30. Anon says:

    A cross between “Rear Window” and “Whatever Happend to Baby Jane?”

  31. KandyKan says:

    “Oh I WILL have some of that cake…just you wait…”

  32. Bilboa says:

    This looks like an album cover for some mid-’90s indie band.

  33. chickmunkey says:

    This is one of my very fav’s on here. There is something so right about this pic but there is something soooooooo wrong….. I agree with the Lit Teacher when she/he posted a comment about making this a good topic for creative writing class. This pic needs to go to the hall of fame of awkward here . It’s very very wrong-good

  34. Rebecca Herman says:

    I believe this is my home. Where was this picture taken?

  35. Kelli says:

    There’s something wrong with Esther!

  36. Izzi says:

    This is the greatest photo in the history of the world.

  37. Cincha says:

    I think this is my favorite, too, and pairs well with the holiday photo in black and white with the three people and the weird shadows. I can’t find it, or I’d post the title.

    This would be a great story starter for a creative writing class…I’m going to make my high school sophomore students write a story around it during the torturous month of December, when no one wants to write.

    horrifying…can’t look away…

  40. edstirling says:

    “What girl in the window. I don’t see anyone.”
    “She’s 14 too. She’s always 14.”

  41. edstirling says:

    “What girl in the window? I don’t see anyone.”
    “She’s 14 too. She’s always 14.”

  42. Joe Schraufnagel says:

    words can’t express the brilliance…I fricking love this pic.

  43. Witchy says:

    This is creepy on SO MANY levels!

  44. J Gibson says:

    Awesome picture. Perfect.

  45. Stan says:

    Who holds a cake from the sides?

  46. Hannahbonana says:

    this pic is my all time fav on the site…but it still gives me the chills. woah.

    • kelley says:
