A reminder that being seen in the family photograph is a privilege, not a right.

Wow now we know why Henry Rollins became so angry.
OMG THEY ARE TURNING!!! HEADSHOTS!!! AIM FOR THE HEAD!!!
that, my friends, is a damn fine creeper photo if i have ever seen one before. Well done little dude. Well done.
It looks like they’re preparing for a shot gun wedding…
I can totally see why this photo was taken – not everyone gets to have Moby at their wedding. I wonder if he DJed at the reception afterwards?
HAHAHA. I appreciated this.
“They’re coming to get you, Barbara!”
Billy’s Prom Date Came With A Chaperon.
This photo looks like it was used in an indictment.
WHAT?? It’s my husband’s Baptist-style “confirmation”! However, I agree I never knew that Dad had two revolvers behind their backs to make sure all went according to god’s plan…
I can’t believe, especially with a picture like this, that nobody has done it yet. Sooooooo, let me be the first:
I think the father and the young son (we’re assuming) in the back are holding compound bows and forcing the other two to walk.
This is what happens when your family has lived in a narrow fjord for 200 years. Makes me proud to be a Norwegian!!
Is it just me, or does this one have a Norman Bates-ian feel?
Oh yeah, I just made the same comment… didn’t know yours said the same thing… practically.
“…you’d better go to church or you’re GOING TO HELL!!”
This has “ghost picture” written all over it. The man standing in the back was killed in a car accident a week before this photo was taken.
No, you can see the “ghost” feet behind mom. The feet were amputated a month before the picture was taken.
it must not be their turn yet. the guys are in line to get their pic taken next…? that’s the only explanation for this pic…. but i’m laughing still, and hard
“come into the light, all are welcome, all are welcome”.
This actually DOES make sense. They’re all at a wedding. The older boy (in front) is an usher, and he’s prepared to escort the mother to her seat. As is customary, the other males in the family follow behind them. Since she’s wearing a corsage, she’s probably closely related to the bride or groom. That’s why a photo was taken.
This one isn’t near as bad as most of the others!
Good call, now it makes sense!
Man, I hate it when someone comes along and basically ruins the fun by posting a legitimate reason for the pose.
My guess is that they are related to the bride or groom and are not happy about the nuptials. Mom is trying to look happy, but dad’s face says it all.
I disagree, still very awkward.
Isn’t that the next-door-neighbor dad from American Beauty?
That’s not the 70′s. It’s the 60′s. That dress is totally mid- to late-60′s.
That is HIS foot. Shook me up there for a second.
Holy, cow, I just saw that little creeper lurking behind Mom. See him foot, and his eyeball peering out between their shoulders?
I saw the little feet, missed the little eye until now. Thanks! Love all the comments!
You can always tell a Milford man.
This reference nearly made me pee myself! I didn’t major in English Lit & hence didn’t get the one above, but this one’s right up my alley!!
Haha comment TWINS!!
Freakishly scary eye between the mom’s and son’s arms…
I think I’m more disturbed by the fact that lady looks like my Aunt Ceil. I even showed it to my mom and she went, “Is that … no, that’s not Mikey but my goodness she looks like my sister!” I asked about the hiding child and she just said, “He probably had bad teeth” My mother is interesting.
wow. i like this.
I’m wondering if this is actually from a wedding where they are waiting to walk down the aisle? That would explain why the mom is holding the son’s arm and the other two are behind them…
duh, but it’s more fun if you pretend otherwise!
Yep, he’s ushering her to the seat, and the other two are following.
That’d be my guess too.
weird, lol. i was kinda thinking the same thing too. they were probably going to attend some sort of ceremony and the mom walked in first with big son and following behind were dad and small son and that when someone took their picture. And i think the big son looks like a young Tom Cruise.
Their eyes look photoshopped.
I’m betting the guy’s eye’s were seriously red based on the flash power and it looks like someone tried to fill them in with a black marker…
Gotta love them floods.
The Dad’s steely-set jaw, the older son’s clenched fists, the younger son cut off from view and the mother’s Stepford wife smile…..CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!
The caption is a 10
What you can’t see is:
The knife pressed firmly in his back and Dad whipering under his breath, ‘Stand up straight!’.
“Not all the Manchurian Candidates were considered to be equal”
The older kid is,’waiting for a flood’!
I don’t know if it’s awkward or just bizarre!
….take the picture or the kid in the back gets it!
The MIB (Men in Black) shadow a young UFO experiencer. . .
“Because you were naughty today, young man, you just don’t make the photograph (entirely). Your brother has done us proud, and I am his proud mother! Step back, I say…”
The kid in the back is hiding the compound bow!
Turtles, you´re scaring me in this picture.
I guess I can skip over the “Life in the 70′s” exhibit at the wax museum…
Who needs a bounce flash?
LOL …. that’s how my Dad used to take pictures .. with flood lights attached to a 2×4 … it’s no wonder we’re not all blind !
A classic 70s color scheme: deep red, dark brown, light brown, light blue, and steely gray hair.
Cute guy, though.
Yeah, he is cute. And he looks surprisingly modern considering what he’s wearing/where he’s standing/who he’s escorting.
Somehow, the kid peeking like that reminded me of Asian horror films..
D: now i’m going to have nightmares!
Sadako (frome Ring) actually also flashed in my mind looking at this picture…we may just die now…
yes, that little kid is like the kid in “The Grudge”…I bet he’s making that weird sound as we
me too! i just peed my pants from laughing!
Oedipus takes the hand of Queen Jocasta.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Fantastic reference!
Man. You don’t get the opportunity to whip out a Jocasta joke too often.
Well played, fellow unemployed or never used English lit major.
As an English teacher wondering if students ever pay attention, allow me to say – I’m very proud, first, of my colleague who allowed this reference to happen, and second to all the English students who “get it.” Thank you.
I like the little kid peeking from behind the old lady. He’s probably hiding from the extremely bright light used to create that awesome shadow-effect.
Love the faux wood paneling too.
Gah! I didn’t even see that kid the first time.
It took me a minute to notice the mom has and extra leg! Awkward!
And it took me your post to notice it! lol!!!
creepy (my favorite word associated with this site…)
I hadn’t noticed the creepy kid behind mom until I read this post!
Did you notice the creepy eye peeking out?!
Haha! Kinda sad it took me this long to notice that.
I laughed out loud before I even noticed the kid.
she obviously shielding him from the atomic flash that is the bulb on that camera. MY GOSH! It’s like their souls are broadcasted on the wood panel wall.
Isn’t that lady a little too old to be her son’s prom date?
The family that wins a staring contest together stays together.
……oh god cant breath(or type)!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have no words.
….no need its been done for us. Sit back and enjoy!
