    “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?”

  2. Emily says:

    The awkwardness is simply that there are about twelve people hovering over him.

  3. Gus says:

    It’s really stunning how I started doing that almost as soon as I became a dad.

  4. Margaret says:

    RIP Pops. :-(

  5. michelle says:

    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.

  6. Araxie says:

    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

  8. cab sav says:

    I caught a co-worker in a similar pose at work one day.

  9. susan says:

    umm, at least he has a shirt on under the suspenders!

  10. rick says:

    I wonder what he’s dreaming about…

  11. jlouise says:

    “I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes”. Surrrre, that’s what they all say.

  12. Richard Davies says:

    I’ve got a picture of my Dad in a similar pose, though sitting more upright.

  13. katy says:

    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.

  15. SeƱor_Citizen says:

    Are there flies hovering? I think I see flies.

  16. JoJo says:

    “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!!!

  18. Jenany says:

    Wasn’t this the opening scene of the film, “Night of the Living Dead”?

  19. cakerabbitt says:

    hes just counting to 10 for hide and seek

  20. Raymmmonodo says:

    Are we voting, here? This one is (my pick for) the best!

  21. wvufan says:

    If he is gone, I got dibs on those AWESOME suspenders!

  22. Addie says:

    There’s a similar version of that in the living room downstairs right now.

  23. RobynS8971 says:

    Someone hold a mrror under that man’s nose, I swear he’s dead!

  24. Wendy says:

    If he had the remote in one hand and an electric razor in the other (pressed to his chin) and it’s my grandpa!

  25. What we don’t see is that he was killed my the Van Helsings…

    Thats right, by multiple compound bow wounds.

  26. Bald Outing says:

    not really awkward.

  27. Nancy says:

    shhhh….Grandpa’s sleeping.

  28. heather says:

    At least he took his dentures out.

  29. Rain Likely says:

    This picture is missing something. . . . a remote control clutched in each hand.

    • Trixie says:

      and a beer.

      • fool says:

        And the channels continuously flipping since his hand is resting on the remote while he sleeps.

        • Hannah says:

          Or the dvd menu screen music playing in a continuous loop on one of the highest volume levels :D

          • Jules says:

            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.
