Oh, What a Feelin’ - Family Portrait

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?

  4. Will says:

    What you don’t know is this photo is actually of a tragic parachuting accident.

  5. Freddy says:

    Sadly, the moment of impact photo taken a millisecond later showed a far uglier scene.

  6. Chico & The Man says:

    I think the woman in the middle had a running start.

  7. Camille says:

    Why is #5 from the left wearing trainers ?! He ruined it all !

  8. Luz says:

    WEEEEE we all have jobs.

  9. Chelle says:

    The guy on the far right reminds me of the ‘Sure’ commercial. He’s the only one that doesn’t seem too sure…

  10. motaboy says:

    still not certain what the caption means

    • Chuck says:

      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.

  11. mindy says:

    forced christmas photo for the company card. They were jumping to get those bonuses!

  12. liz says:

    we all gotta a gap gift certificate!

  13. Um....Greg says:

    Poor ACL’s never had a chance 🙁

  14. PoppaThug says:

    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…

  15. Edith Key says:

    I enjoyed coming upon this blog

  16. Bree says:

    Why are they all dressed like they work at Best Buy?

  17. tracy says:

    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?

  18. 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.

  19. Shannon says:

    Yep, Toyota! I remember that back in the 80’s. Just like the commercial.

  20. SweetPea says:

    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.)

    Wingardium Leviosa!

  22. ohbrooke says:

    OMG – the caption. You’re my new best friend – that was hilarious. Richard and Helen are always showing off.

  23. tee says:

    They are all nicely belted too. Good attention to detail.

  24. Andrew says:

    Why does that lady on the right not have a belt on?

    Does she think she’s better than the rest?

  25. Mugi says:

    They look like they’re wearing the uniform that the Chase Bank tellers and reps use…

  26. Anis says:

    What happened to loaded weapon?!?!?! It was the best!!!

  27. Scrotus says:

    This photo is a lot more interesting if you pretend they’re all falling from the mothership instead of jumping in the air.

  28. Rachel says:

    what does backscratcher-ed it mean?

  29. Steve says:

    This photo is the result of some motivational corporate retreat. Or it’s the AIG upper echelon celebrating their bonuses from the federal bailout.

  30. Prestige Worldwide says:

    Mom’s got absolutely no hops!!!

  31. Heather says:

    I’ll give you a hint on the backscratchers. The backscratchers are #2 and #3 from the left.

  32. kodiak kids says:

    And the Bears beat the Khakis on a last second field goal.

  33. danigirl6 says:

    I was actually in a wedding that used this pose for the bridal party. Try doing this is a dress and heels…very awkward.

  34. pema mikyod dorje says:

    Even the entire Bush family were overjoyed at the news ‘w’ was out…
    Surely thats Barbara in the middle

  35. Amice says:

    Proof: White men *can’t* jump.

  36. Albert says:

    I think this is pretty cool. It must have been a difficult photo to take.

  37. Tim says:

    That’s right…dance….DANCE, my puppets!

  38. Jewelsgrl says:

    Wow, they are wearing those khaki’s HIGH on the waist, dude.

  39. mark says:

    I’m going to fire this compopund bow really low so everyone jump just before.

  40. Whoa says:

    Oh my God, everyone put your hands up! That guy with the pregnant lady has a gun!!!

  41. Jasper says:

    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 🙂

  42. scully says:

    Can’t tell if they’re being abducted or returned back.

  43. mamasarita says:

    Oh what a feeling….Toyota.

  44. Heather says:

    I could not figure out what backscratcher-ed meant. Once I figured it out….bahahahahaha. Greatest caption ever.

    • Jasper says:

      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 🙂

      • Yellowsittingduck says:

        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.

      • Andrew says:

        Look at the two people first and second from the left.

        Specifically, their legs.

  45. Choco says:

    Never realized how many shades of khaki there are.

  46. eric says:

    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.

  47. vivian says:

    eeeer, Earth’s gravity!

  48. Danger says:

    Who said white men can’t jump?

  49. Clay says:


  50. Carol says:

    Wheeeee! It cheers me up to see enthusiasm 🙂
