    This photo is scary beyond ALL reason. I cannot get calmed down. Too funny!

  2. Kate says:

    I really love this photo. I wish the cake was in focus a bit more. It looks like there are posed little figures on it. So awesome.

    • Zucchini Queeni says:

      Why do some of the little figures on the cake have little white umbrellas hovering over them? Or are those little white hatchets?

    As Jimmy Webb takes a photo of his sister at MacArthur Park, a song takes shape in his mind…

  4. Cassidy says:

    That girl in the window probably never gets a birthday cake…
    Poor creepy neglected little child lol

  5. Maggiee says:

    This would make a great movie poster or book cover…something like that. Cool photo!

  6. emm says:

    isnt this shot from ‘night of the living dead’???

  7. Carmen says:

    This photo is so amazing, I can’t even begin to express how much I’m in love with it.

  8. Asa says:

    I feel a great urge to write a horror-script for a movie. It will start with a birthday. And maybe a cake. And no one will be happy.

    This photo kicks a**.

  10. kashmir says:

    …its not a ghost…its her younger sister…the reason for the facial expression is that she had out of style square glasses and her sister had cateye ones, so she is squinting so sh can see… she doesnt even look like a ghost….

    Little Margie realized that maybe she didn’t really want to eat the cake her big sister made for her after all…

  13. Heather says:

    That is CREEEEEPTASTIC!!!! I love it!

  14. noturavg says:

    You’re all going to think I’m lying, but the same girl appears in the background of every photograph I have of me holding a cake. And I have hundreds.

  15. agatheringstorm says:

    This is the best picture on the whole site, imo. I have this as my background on my computer. I did think it was a boy in the window, though. I guess it’s a girl by the clothes.

    Stephen King’s Family album.

      I have tears rolling down my face from laughter because of this comment.

      • Joseph Peterson says:

        I can’t breathe and have tears rolling down my face from this and the Ingmar Bergman comments. I seriously can’t gain composure and trying not to wake the house by laughing/crying in a pillow. good gravy, this is the best thing I have ever seen on the internet!

    • tellmewhatyouthink says:

      I’ve read all the comments, sad I know, this one takes the “cake”(I know, I’m sorry, but had to be said).

  32. motaboy says:

    is that a ghost in the window?

  33. Zach says:

    Funny thing is, this is a beautiful photo.

  34. saint says:

    This is one of the best photographs I’ve ever seen. And it fills me with such joy to know it’s just a candid. You couldn’t stage a better picture. Damn.

  35. Ehcanadian says:

    That surpasses classic. I have not full out laughed this hard in so loong. There´s something about the facial expressions combined with the ´´festive´´ occasion, and the BnW. Something very, very special…

  36. RJG says:
