  2. tofudisan says:

    In Soviet Romania floor splits you!

  3. eowyn_2 says:

    LOL I thought Romania as soon as I saw this picture. And yes, Romania was that far behind in 2005, probably still is. And yes, Romania is different from Russia. But win all around anyway.

  4. Kate says:

    he’s not sitting on his parents feet! he is definitely levitating

  5. cora says:

    Ok, so I’m Romanian and before looking at the picture I said to myself “They look like Romanian people” and sure enough…I was right. Though sometimes I am proud to be a Romanian…pictures like this…make me…I don’t know…

      I’m not romanian but I dated one for about 3 years and my first thought was “romanian” as well. It’s not just the people, but the combination of the people, the settings of the room (flooring, drapes, and furniture), and the fact that this picture was taken in 2005 but the younger guy looks like he’s from 1985 that give it away. LOL.

  6. Adrienne says:

    that boy *definitely* has a cigarette in his left hand. wtf?

  7. They r wearing fur indoors b/c it is probably cold indoors! Great shot!!

  8. Tom says:

    Why is Joquin Phoenix doin’ the splitz?

  9. Katie says:

    The real akward part of this picture is that Mom is wearing a brown coat with black pants. Total faux-pas.

  10. Steve says:

    Romania, Where Jean Cluade Van Damme is just another guy.

  11. Andrew says:

    Much to their surprise, this picture did not do anything for them on Romanian Match.com.

  12. Junior says:

  13. dan says:

  14. frequencer says:

    The cigarette does make the pic.

  15. Johnny Law says:

    What I love is the fact that this photo was taken in 2005… not 1990 as one might suspect!

  16. George says:

    My Romanian ex makes so much more sense now…

    • Cassandra says:

      This made me laugh so hard at work that everyone looked at me like I grew a second head!!! Then I explained the website to them all and are now all addicted! I love it!!!

  17. In Soviet Union, splits do YOU!

  18. Silvia says:

  19. cranky pants says:

    The Russians are comming, the Russians are comming and one of them can do the splits

  20. El Kev says:

    In Romania, you don’t do the splits. The splits do you.

  21. Nobody says:

    “Nadya… isn’t there a better way our son can get out of Romania?”

  22. amber says:

    The guy doing the splits appears to be smoking as well. Check out his left hand. Now, that’s talent.

  23. Alex says:

    Guy in the hat: “I wish I can move my legs that way.”
    Lady: “I don’t approve of that pose.”
    Split Guy: “Hahahahaha I’m awesome.”

  48. Betwixt says:
