And it would have been perfect too if those showboats Richard and Helen hadn’t backscratcher-ed it.

Isn’t that a compound bow in the tree?
Cuz we’ve got joy, joy, joy, joy down in our heart!
Down in our heart!
Down in our heart!
“Up with people, the reunion show”
OMG!!!! I actually saw Up with People when I was in grade school! Too funny!!!
What you don’t know is this photo is actually of a tragic parachuting accident.
That’s freakin hilarious. Too bad the cameraman was also one of the parachutists.
Sadly, the moment of impact photo taken a millisecond later showed a far uglier scene.
I think the woman in the middle had a running start.
Why is #5 from the left wearing trainers ?! He ruined it all !
WEEEEE we all have jobs.
The guy on the far right reminds me of the ‘Sure’ commercial. He’s the only one that doesn’t seem too sure…
still not certain what the caption means
The ‘backscratcher’ refers to a leap/jump in which you bend your legs to ‘try to’ touch your back. Popular with cheerleaders and dance squads. Yeah, I’m sad that I know this too.
forced christmas photo for the company card. They were jumping to get those bonuses!
we all gotta a gap gift certificate!
Poor ACL’s never had a chance 🙁
Since their amputations Sue and Paul still fall for the old “EVERYBODY WITH LEGS JUMP UP IN THE AIR” gag…
BTW, #5 seems to be afraid of heights…
I enjoyed coming upon this blog
Why are they all dressed like they work at Best Buy?
that’s one way to improve relations and moral at the company picnic… however i believe the human resources head should probably be fired. i wonder if everyone got a copy to put on their cubicle wall?
I think in high school sports we called these “butt kicks” in form running. Maybe they were just trying to get in some extra sculpting exercise.
Yep, Toyota! I remember that back in the 80’s. Just like the commercial.
Raise your hands
(You know it)
Raise your hands
(You show it)
You feel confide-ent, secure…
Raise your hands, raise your haaaaaands, if you’re SURE!
(Or this could be one of those Newport Alive with Pleasure! ads gone horribly wrong.)
the guy on the left of richard and helen ruined it with his one-arm jump!
the guy on the furthest right ruined it with his neither-up-nor-down-going-nowhere arms!
HA! You, ma’am, win an internet.
Oh….my………god. Milk literally came out of my nose. Best comment ever. I didn’t know anyone else who just randomly says that.
I am sitting here cackling like a hen in my cube farm and everybody wants to know what’s so funny. A Harry Potter reference out of the blue is just the bomb. you made my Friday.
OMG – the caption. You’re my new best friend – that was hilarious. Richard and Helen are always showing off.
They are all nicely belted too. Good attention to detail.
Why does that lady on the right not have a belt on?
Does she think she’s better than the rest?
They look like they’re wearing the uniform that the Chase Bank tellers and reps use…
What happened to loaded weapon?!?!?! It was the best!!!
This photo is a lot more interesting if you pretend they’re all falling from the mothership instead of jumping in the air.
what does backscratcher-ed it mean?
This photo is the result of some motivational corporate retreat. Or it’s the AIG upper echelon celebrating their bonuses from the federal bailout.
Mom’s got absolutely no hops!!!
I’ll give you a hint on the backscratchers. The backscratchers are #2 and #3 from the left.
And the Bears beat the Khakis on a last second field goal.
I was actually in a wedding that used this pose for the bridal party. Try doing this is a dress and heels…very awkward.
Even the entire Bush family were overjoyed at the news ‘w’ was out…
Surely thats Barbara in the middle
Proof: White men *can’t* jump.
I think this is pretty cool. It must have been a difficult photo to take.
That’s right…dance….DANCE, my puppets!
Crying laughing… best comment!
Wow, they are wearing those khaki’s HIGH on the waist, dude.
I’m going to fire this compopund bow really low so everyone jump just before.
Oh my God, everyone put your hands up! That guy with the pregnant lady has a gun!!!
Best caption so far!
The picture of the pregnant “hostage” gave me nightmares.
Yeah! What happened to that picture? I couldn’t locate it a second time.
Um, does anyone know what the verb “backscratcher-ed” means? It is an intriguing term but will be even moreso when I know what it means 🙂
they bent their legs at the knees as if to scratch their backs with their feet.
it took me a minute, too.
Thanks Ann! This completely escaped me but now I see what you mean. Jasper
its a skiing maneuvre
Can’t tell if they’re being abducted or returned back.
Oh what a feeling….Toyota.
I could not figure out what backscratcher-ed meant. Once I figured it out….bahahahahaha. Greatest caption ever.
Oh Heather Who I Don’t Know But Who I Like Because You Use The Expression Bhahahahaha,
Could you help a sister out? What the @#$#@ does backscratcher mean? I don’t want to use that expression incorrectly or inappropriately. It’s like my mom who watches shows like “Rescue Me” and “The Shield” and calls me up so I can explain the dirty terms to her. Nothing more fun than explaining explicit sexual terms to one’s 70-year-old mother!
Thanks for educating me 🙂
I didn’t get it either until I looked for the two people who were doing something everyone else wasn’t. See the two people on the far left, they both have their legs tucked behind them like..yeah..and everyone else is just jumping, these peeps be ECSTATIC and hence, backscratchin. And yeah, it really bothers me now that I see it and I’m frustrated at their lack of communication and/or refusal to participate with the group.
Look at the two people first and second from the left.
Specifically, their legs.
It’s a skiing term. Imagine where their skiis would be if they were wearing them…
Never realized how many shades of khaki there are.
They knew something was odd when the blue shirts the photographer gave them weighed 50 pounds each and there was a giant magnet over their heads, but nobody seemed to put the pieces together until it was too late.
eeeer, Earth’s gravity!
Returning from a trip to the Enterprise!! Just missing the little fuzzy sparkles that Scotty always threw in!!
Who said white men can’t jump?
Wheeeee! It cheers me up to see enthusiasm 🙂
