    I like how the lamp behind the guy on the right makes him look like he has on a jauntily placed crown.

  3. rick says:

    Oh man, I can see it now… these guys are gonna get all the fine ladiez out’thea.

  4. staci says:

    hahahahahahahahahahaha….. their faces say EVERYTHING!……

  5. Hannah says:

    naw. look at them there. they look so happy.

  6. Annie says:

    They look so displeased to be having their picture taken. Maybe those chairs are more comfortable than they look? Let’s ask the dude who’s in the picture

  7. Woody says:

    Anyone else thinks those chairs look like gold-crushed-velvet-covered bridge chairs from Star Trek (the original series)?

  8. Kim Bice says:

    I don’t know why, but this is the funniest thing I have ever seen..

  9. steve says:

    Alvin and the Chipmunks!!

    (Too old of a reference?)

  10. Kris says:

    I just LOVE this website!

    This one just keeps me laughing.

  11. Jeneva says:

    We had those exact chairs!! Of course that was the late 70’s this picture looks MUCH more recent than that!

  12. Penny says:

    It is so hard to find a decent picture with tassels these days. Anyone have these people’s phone number, I have to know where to find such a classy item!

  13. ru says:

    i think that by next year, the kid in the middle will have hit that magic mark – the height of the mantle, which means all three will be wearing ties! good to see he is enjoying his last moments of freedom…

    My mom made my siblings and I dress up on Easter and do the egg hunt thing. She even made us have the cheesy baskets. I was doing this the Easter I was engaged and my fiance had to join in the fun! I vowed not to do that to my kids. Our pictures weren’t this painful though!!

  15. Sandra says:

    LOVE the tassels hanging from the pictures! Classic! The kid in the middle seems to have a bit of a grin that says he’s glad he’s not wearing one of the way too short ties.

  16. MLW says:

    The guy on the left wants to click his heels together and say there is no place like this can not be happening.

  17. awhofan says:

    I know the guy on the right we work together. Do not use picture to get a job they will never hire you and from here out you will be doing all the running (private joke). Music City 2009

  18. Maya B. says:

    Obviously not tailor-made outfits they’re wearing…

  19. Mike says:

    Those chairs are actually quite confortable but I always felt extremely self-conscious sitting in them.

  20. Kathy says:

    I love the compound bow remarks, keep ’em coming.

  21. Mindy says:

    lmao why do those chairs remind me so much of the chair from pee wee’s play house?

  22. MomToOne says:

    The Jonas Brothers before fame

  23. turnidoff says:

    A Stanley Kubrick Easter!

  25. Cheesewhiz says:

    This is the epitome of an awkward family photo. LOVE it!!!

  26. Megan says:

    If I beg and beg and beg can we all please vow to make no more compound bow jokes? They are totally ruining the fun of this website. Please? Pretty please??

  27. Jon says:

    The freeze-dried, caught in time CHAIRS!!!!!!! And, yes, I can’t get over the pictures hung at Billy Barty level next to one of them.

  28. Anastacia says:

    Honestly, those armchairs are my favorite part of this picture. I can see how a lifetime of sitting in something so obviously uncomfortable could lead to such morose holiday photos.

  29. WombatGirl says:

    Someone should poke the one on the left; I think he fell asleep.

  30. Binky says:

    The annoyed expressions, the too-short ties, the khakis and short sleeved dress shirts, the strange furniture and near-symmetrical decor. I love this photo! Awkward gold! (p.s. I really want one of those chairs!!)

  31. Clay says:


    That’s me on the far right. I posted this photo to facebook several years ago as a joke because of how over-the-top ridiculous my brothers and I look in it! I mean come on, that is a quintessential terrible picture…

    I’ve taken the picture off facebook since then, but it looks like one of my friends must have saved it and recently submitted it here.

    Anyway, glad you guys got a kick out of it.

    • blucat says:

      That is totally the right attitude to have when things like this leak. When my grandfather died some years ago, my extremely tall brothers had to wear ties and the same thing happened. Is there such a thing as a big man’s/ tall man’s ties?

    • Annie says:

      So are those chairs more comfortable than they look or did you just rake your fingernails across the armrests when you were forced to sit in them and make nice with guests? We had similar ones in blue, but they were a bit wider and they had little “covers” on the armrests with fringe on it.

  32. sir jorge says:

    wow, this type of thing is the sole reason why i don’t dress up ever. Not even for funerals. I wear t-shirt and dicckies, unto death!

  33. Mark says:

    On Easter, Jesus rises from the dead. These guys? Not so much.

  34. oakout says:

    Albert and Thomas always had the advantage over young Sparky in the “Annual Living Room Easter Egg Hunt”. So much so, that the event lost it’s excitement with each passing year. That is – until the year that the Easter Bunny finally brought Sparky the compound bow. Mom vowed to hide the eggs better from then on! Too bad Albert will not be able to participate. So sad…

  35. Dad says:

    These are my boys! Who posted this? Yes, it really was that awkward and I tied the ties for them. I never was any good at it…

  36. Denise says:

    I want to hire whoever did their Easter decorations. Very understated and classy.

  37. monjakavala says:

    on a side note, the boys found it humorous that their ties were 6 inches too short…

  38. Jordan says:

    The ties- so short!

  39. Willie says:

    It was #3, Officer! THAT’S who bit the head off my chocolate Easter bunny!

  40. Tim says:

    “OK, Number 2 – step forward and turn to your left, please…”

  41. Amy says:

    I see the middle one lucked out and didn’t have to wear one of Dad’s ties.

  42. Samael says:

    anyone noticed the furry thing between the legs of the guy in the middle?
    a dog? a (easter-)bunny? a rat?

  43. Jeffy says:

    If you draw a conecting from left to right on top of their heads, it makes the shape of a compound bow.

  44. Peenuckle Macgee says:

    mommies love to dress there kids up for holidays…. uggghhh.
    I remember those days

  45. Hayley says:

    They remind me of real life characters out of The Far Side comics.

  46. TREEMAN says:

    i don´t really know with which one i want to fall in LOVE. it´s a hard decision. very hard.

  47. CarlosOU says:

    The two hanging pictures on the wall throw off the otherwise perfect symetry of this photo.

    • Mary says:

      And where can I find those chairs? You just can’t beat gold crushed velvet when it comes to furniture.

      • ChasBrat says:

        I am not kidding when I say I have one of those chairs. LOL! My mother in law gave it to us over 10 yrs ago. I don’t sit in it but my friends say its comfortable. I so laughed my butt off when I saw those chairs.

  48. Fleabitten says:

    Soon after this holiday photo was snapped, the Symmetric family realized their home had been burgled.

  49. WSC says:

    Will someone teach these kids how to tie a neck-tie correctly, for the love of god?! Hmm, maybe clip ons?

  50. Jocelyn says:

    Wow, I can hear the, “SHEESH, MOM! TAKE THE PICTURE ALREADY!!” from here.
