    Ok, I am the girl in the black dress and I am almost wetting my pants reading all these posts. And for your information I don’t know why I was holding his thumb! But anyway it was a good time.

  2. Spunk Ransomette says:

    WOW i didn’t know skyscrapers were made from wood. Come on at least paint over the wood grain!

  3. Paul says:

    That’s me… I’m the guy in the blue shirt. A friend of mine sent me this link and thought I’d get a kick out of it. Very Funny.

  4. Neko says:

    I’d be more concerned about the chick on the left who doesn’t HAVE A HAND.

  5. Funnysox says:

    I happen to know these people. It was a school dance. It was not prom. It was not a school production. And yes, Mr Thumb is kinda short 5’2″ or so.

  6. kc says:

    Ok, I’m glad people’s comments cleared that one up for me. I thought the awkwardness stemmed from the hard-on the guy has on the right.

    Was he trying to get her to pull his finger? Did he fart?
    Where is thumpkin, where is thumpkin? Here I am! Here I am! etc…

  8. Armedandready says:

    I just love that they all appear to have one arm.

  9. Sofi says:

    I think she looks more like Mary Poppins….everybody now “just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go down, in the most delightful way!”

    There’s nothing funny about this one – except the Gunne Sax plywood comment above. I’ve submitted much more awkward pics than this that have yet to be posted. For once, I’m disappointed in you, AFP Blogmaster :(

  11. Cleaver says:

    Whew, at first I thought that was a picture of me. In which case, this would not be funny. Alas, it’s not me, so it’s great.

  12. cricket says:

    Maybe they’re cousins! These are awkward family photos afterall!

  13. Jeneva says:

    classic!! A full night of touch dancing to Richard Marx ballards ensued following this.

  14. Grainne says:

    I don’t think this is a prom photo, but rather a drama photo – perhaps the backdrop is for a play that the four of them are in. Also, the dress of the girl on the left looks like it’s supposed to be from another era. or it could be a very strange prom photo afterall.

    • Molly says:

      Exactly what I was thinking! My bet is Guys and Dolls.

      • Jessica says:

        Actually, no, it was Homecoming. Not quite sure about the reason the backdrop was the way it was. And yes, I had an awful dress… And the guys asked us what color our dresses were in an attempt to match their ties to our dresses… 1993 at it’s finest…

  15. Ashley says:

    Okay, the reason people are confused is because they are looking at their right rather than at the pictured people’s right.

  16. Rachalrg says:

    what about the guy on the left holding the girls hand almost at her wrist? that’s a little weird way to hold a hand too…
    other then the hand holding, this is a classic 80′s-90′s school dance pic lol

  17. Pete says:

    ThumbElina, people. There’s nothing worse than everyone copying a mistake.

    And has nobody spotted their TIES yet??

  18. Chilon says:

    Wow i got totally thrown off by the title. I thought it was a joke that the guy was super short (which he’s not really), like the Thumbalina character. hahaha I’m slow

  19. Baron says:

    I just think it’s great…

  20. penguins13 says:

    I saw the thumb holding right away, but it took me a long time to figure out why it was titled “Thumbalina” LOL

  21. MST says:

    Quick!
    Pull my finger!

  22. Elizabeth says:

    Wow, did they really have their prom with a city landscape in the background?? Lucky.

  23. Serious says:

    thumb job…cool.

  24. Lacie says:

    Everyones is is laughing at the “long distance dancing” but I myself got great humor out of the chick on the left…pink dress is lovely! Ahahahahaha!

  25. Krish says:

    i think the caption is about the guy on the right.. look at him.. he’s shorter than she is!… or about the same height

  26. Tom_thumb says:

    on the contrary…thumb holding can be very sensual. you are in for a wild ride time my friend!

  27. Andrew says:

    Because she is holding his thumb? They are like 14 or 15 years old!

    Probably the least awkward picture I’ve seen.

  28. grimey says:

    Yeah, I’ve seen people hold compound bows better than that….ZING!

  29. sharp says:

    Jeez people…the girl isnt holding his (guy on right) hand, its just placed on top. She won’t hold his hand, therefore probably will do the long distance slow dance.

  30. Brandon says:

    What’s not to get? The girl on the right is barely holding onto the guys thumb… not too much of a connection I suspect, thus the long distance slow dance comment: )

  31. cha says:

    dummies- it’s because the girl on the right is barely holding his hand. Read the title.

  32. danigrl6 says:

    i think the caption is talking about the guy and girl on the right. She is barely holding on to his thumb.

  33. madame ruby says:

    I think the joke is that she’s holding his thumb and not his whole hand. (Took me a little while to get it.)

  34. mike says:

    first! i dont get it.. long distance slow dancing..?

  35. Laura says:

    don’t you mean the guy on the left

  36. Turtles101 says:

    I like Turtles

  37. Red_neck85 says:

    It would be a dream date if the boys held compound bows and the girls held crossbows

  38. Nana says:

    Wait… my right or your right?

  39. arnessang says:

    I love the gunne sax dress on the left, and the fact that you can see the grain of the plywood.

  40. sir jorge says:

    i don’t see the big deal, kid can’t dress? so what. He’ll get his revenge when he starts a site chronicling all awkward photos….woops
