A tribute to the official armchair sleeping position of fathers everywhere.

“It really wasn’t until he missed dinner that we became suspicious. That wasn’t like Grandpa. Come to think of it, it wasn’t like him to miss breakfast or lunch either. And what the hell was that smell?”
The awkwardness is simply that there are about twelve people hovering over him.
It’s really stunning how I started doing that almost as soon as I became a dad.
RIP Pops. 🙁
I think whats more awkward than the pose is the angle that the picture was taken in…. someone had to get too close for comfort and turn on the creepiness of photography to catch this magical moment.
I guarantee any grandson 10 or younger walking past him had an incredibly strong urge to drop a penny down his mouth.
dude that’s robert duvall
I caught a co-worker in a similar pose at work one day.
umm, at least he has a shirt on under the suspenders!
I wonder what he’s dreaming about…
“I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes”. Surrrre, that’s what they all say.
I’ve got a picture of my Dad in a similar pose, though sitting more upright.
are you sure he isn’t dead…looks like it to me…i work for the medical examiner office and we get people more alive than that showing up.
This is just one half of the new Father’s Day Edition “cornhole” game. Ol’ Dad’s about to get a snootfull o’ bean bags.
Love it! thanks for the laugh!
You’re welcome, Penny. My good deed for the day. :o)
Are there flies hovering? I think I see flies.
“Got his teeth!”
Why is there always at least one person on here who says, “This isn’t awkward.” This is awkwardfamilyphotos.com. If it makes it on here, then at least a couple of people think it’s awkard. Maybe not YOU, but YOU’RE not the only one in the world. It’s called a sense of humor…find one.
This pic is totally awkward. It’s a corpse!!!
THANK YOU!!! I am so sick of ppl saying neg. things!! If you don’t like it move on!!
Wasn’t this the opening scene of the film, “Night of the Living Dead”?
hes just counting to 10 for hide and seek
Are we voting, here? This one is (my pick for) the best!
If he is gone, I got dibs on those AWESOME suspenders!
There’s a similar version of that in the living room downstairs right now.
Someone hold a mrror under that man’s nose, I swear he’s dead!
Yeah….I think gramps is no longer with us…..
If he had the remote in one hand and an electric razor in the other (pressed to his chin) and it’s my grandpa!
What we don’t see is that he was killed my the Van Helsings…
Thats right, by multiple compound bow wounds.
Lmao! To bad he doesn’t have hair, then he could look like the Bon family to.
not really awkward.
Nor is it a family…
Nah, it’s just a piece, albeit an ancient piece, of the awkward family puzzle. We aren’t privileged enough to see the whole family in one photograph. This is all we get.
He’s not sleeping; he’s only resting his eyes.
Resting one eye . . . the other seems to be on lookout.
I like your lookout theory.
That’s exactly what my dad used to say! LOL
At least he took his dentures out.
This picture is missing something. . . . a remote control clutched in each hand.
and a beer.
And the channels continuously flipping since his hand is resting on the remote while he sleeps.
Or the dvd menu screen music playing in a continuous loop on one of the highest volume levels 😀
LMAO at this one … instantly reminded me of my ex-father in law, with ALL the TVs in the house on at top volume. I walked around turning them off or at least down whenever I was there, I’d be twitching after a couple of days! LOL!!
I’m not a doctor, but the man looks dead.
He’s dead, Jim.
No, you give him a poke to check!
YOU poke him…I’m afraid :/
Never mind that – did he leave a will?
I’m with you! That was my first thought.
I saw that look when I saw my father after he died.
Someone definately needs to check to make sure that this guy is still breathing.
Put a mirror under his nose to see if he is breathing..
