    And the best thing about this is that it wasn’t even Christmas time.

  2. Angie says:

    The little girl is the only who looks like she knows that this is a bad idea.

  3. bob says:

    i cant wait to see what we get for our birthdays from grandma.

  4. David says:

    i don’t think I would get a long with the person who made this decision… as they are insane.

  5. ana says:

    how many llamas had to die for that shot?

  6. Michelle says:

    The only thing that could make this picture more perfect is if there was a little dog at the bottom… in a sweater!

  7. Elaine says:

    Yes, the only way to improve on matching sweaters is to color-code them by gender.

  8. Karoly73 says:

    See you my website:)

  9. Amy says:

    At least one of those guys is thinking, “What the *#!&!!!”

  10. Sarah says:

    Emasculation at its finest.

  11. gary says:

  12. scmama1971 says:

    MY EYES!
    If you sit and stare long enough you will see Martha Stewart!

    Oh my goodness! Some of the comments are funnier than this sweater disaster!

  13. Sarah says:

    I think the sweater picture was cool kool oh well you get my drift

  14. MON says:

    awful awful awful……That just about sums up the word for those sweaters!!!!

  15. Gracey says:

    “What Not To Wear” = family edition. That is some love for whoever they were posing for, whew.

  16. Babzgrl says:

    This must be someones idea of human lo jack. Hard to get lost wearing this.

  17. Xtina says:

    This is a Glamour “Don’t.”

  18. jenneliz says:

    I like how they make it easy to for us to distinguish the boys from girls with colors! how clever!

  19. libby says:

    uhhh…where can i regift this thing?

  20. Murdock says:

    Sometimes, ya just have to say “no.” Or walk away.

  21. Anastus says:

    This is Disturbia.

  22. Jolynn says:

    @dandaman: You really think anyone will be fighting FOR these sweaters? I’m thinking it will be much more: “That’s your sweater! Nuh uh, it’s YOURS!”

  23. Bankerman says:

    True story: One Christmas early in our marriage my mother-in-law got my wife and her sister ugly-a** matching sweaters, and made them wear them.

    Those sweaters were NEVER seen again!

  24. Rebekah says:

    The only way this is remotely ok is if they’re Finnish and “celebrating” their heritage. And even then, it’s still not ok. Cuz really, being proud of where your family comes from should never make you want to poke each other’s eyes out.

  25. McFly says:

    Put this picture in a time capsule for the aliens to find 200 years from now…they’ll admire the uniforms!

  26. Nan says:

    Sweaters or Christmas tree skirts?

  27. Hawk says:

    Many happy returns!

  28. Chazlette says:

    Some families have crests, some have kilts, this one obviously has all that but in sweater form!

  29. dandaman says:

    I see huge fights post laundry sorting. ” hey, that’s my sweater! No, that’s my sweater!”

  30. Emily says:

    No one was willing to fight Grandma on this? I would have gone down swinging, and would never have been invited to another family reunion.

  31. Lady T says:

    Is this their reunion tour?

  32. DK says:

    I am not sure what is worse, the sweaters or that picture hanging over the mantel.

  33. Fiona says:

    This is the scariest thing I have ever seen. Sweaters of mass destruction.

  34. Corey says:

    Don’t be so cruel folks. That’s value shopping, which is important in these tough times. The sweaters double as area rugs.

  35. Lucas says:

    Where will they sing? I want to buy tickets to see them sing “I feel Good”;

  36. Ellalee says:

    Grandmas are cruel. I can see that proud granny saying, “Okay kids, I want you all to open the gifts at the same time on the count to three!” And then directing (bossing) everyone around, “You stand here, Bob. You stand here, Bill. Alright, don’t move! Be still!” as the neighbor Al plays photographer for her. “Al, make sure you get a shot with me in the middle! I can’t wait to put this in the Christmas letter for all my Red Hat Society friends to see!”

    Granny is deluded that she has the happiest family on earth and can’t wait to brag. In truth, they are all unhappy, think she’s batty, and she’ll never see the truth because she can’t handle it.

    Those sweaters are expensive BTW. She’d done better to spend $40 plus per person on a Wii to keep at her house. The kids might like visiting more. I know those young men would prefer that.

      This is the kind of insightful comment I think about leaving, then second guess myself thinking “Damn. I am jaded”. Thank you for your honesty!

  37. Innes says:

    All that’s missing is the pan pipes.

  38. Smooches says:

    It looks as though they are all draped with an AFGHAN blanket!

  39. Jewelsgrl says:

    Nothing says love like this type of pain.

  40. David says:

    Sister Act 4 is being shot in Mexico.

  41. Tim says:

    “NOTE TO SELF: take the yarn away from Grandma..”

  42. Joey says:

    is it just me or does it look like the little boy on the right has his eyes like half closed.

  43. Lucid says:

    Meant to add, I am guilty of owning one of those horrible hand knit scratchy woolen monstrosities in the form of a cardigan. It is hidden in the dark recesses of my closet.

    I am afraid to ditch it in case it needs to make an “appearance”.

  44. HurleyBurleyGirl says:

    Why oh why in the holy name of Versace would anyone find this attractive and festively fun to wear? Ever?

  45. Jiub Reyn says:

    Okay, who knitted the sweaters….what is Grandma? Mom? ‘fess up!!

  46. Sassy says:

    They look like a mariachi band.

  47. Tha Sprayah says:

    That woman can knit!

  48. Harp player says:

    got sweater?
