This time, the choke is on dad.

Now son if you make one more “funny” face.
hey ISN’T THAT HOMER SIMPSONS WAY OF SAYING I LOVE YOU?
WHY YOU LITTLE….
the funniest part about this pic is that im the one being choked…. and i don’t remember this pic at all!
dude, you blacked out. its ok….
Holy s***! That little boy looks like me (20 years ago)!
I’m the little girl in the pic… this was from either ’87 or ’88. I’m now 30. lol.
It was an outtake from a family portrait done in our house… and yes, my mother made that quilt.
I found this pic a few weeks ago in a box of hundreds of photographs… while looking for pics to humiliate my brother at his wedding this coming fall. I’m happy to report, he survived the choking incident. lol.
This is one of my fave pics on this site! Love the quilt background and the feeble attempt at matching clothes.
thanks for posting lacey!!!
always loved this shot…
I’ve got it! What if we use a quilt for a backdrop!
Maybe they are related to the people in The Choker part 1.
It’s lucky that the Dad hasn’t got curly hair, because if he did he would look disturbingly like the Yorkshire Ripper.
i just noticed the kid being choked here looks eerily similar to the dude choking his mother in the other choker pic. is it the same guy?? the chokee becoming the choker?? what kind of sick family is this!
not a sick family…it’s my family and they were just having some fun. you remember fun…don’t you???
Their daughter has a sorrowful demeanor, almost as if she’s saying, “This isn’t my real family”. Maybe she’s telling the photographer to dial 9-1-1. Or she’s explaining that “it’s just Timmy’s time to go. Dad already warned him twice in the car”.
Mr. and Mrs. Stranglehold. The daughter’s adopted, obviously.
(MOM) “Jim, if you don’t let go of that kid, I swear..I’m gonna choke YOU”!
This is a choke, right? I sure hope it is.
LOL, cute chris…
Too graphic in nature.
Mom wins the award for “Best Plastic Smile”
she also wins the award for “Most Bitchin’ Perm”.
What a Fathers day memory for this kid. Will look back years from now and say dad never could take a joke.
This is the most elaborate “Magic Eye” picture I have ever seen. It’s like the people pop right out at you!
This was the last time they ever let dad watch The Simpsons.
“Why you litttle…..I’m gonna choke you good!”
this is obviously the simpsons real life portrait before they had maggie. the similarities disturb me.
He is totally going to get away with it. It’s the perfect crime!
Wow. This is confusing on so many levels. The quilt background, the horrible cropping, the subjects looking in different directions, the mom-to-dad chokehold, and the very frightening father-to-son neck grip. That poor girl just wants out of there. A highly successfully horrible family portrait!
This is awesome. My vote goes for this one and its awesome cheesy goodness.
wow, it looks like that little girl is mortfied, or just pissed at her family
You can see the panic in the daughters eyes…she knows that she’s next
way to not have photographic evidence dad.
Mom is upset because Dad’s shenanigans are messing up her first shots with her new Whitney Houston hair do.
to paraphrase Quint from ” Jaws “……..” cold eyes….like a dolls eyes “
What’s the deal with the chocking pictures?! There’s the one with the son chocking mom and dad’s wearing short shorts and now this!
Yes! Can somebody please explain this phenomenon?
I was wondering the same thing!! What’s the deal?
I admit that I have a choking picture too…and I am the child being choked in the portrait. I don’t know what to say, or how to explain it.
I blame Homer Simpson
I have one too of my grandfather choking me. Its all The Simpsons fault. Most of the photos would be early 90s.
Yup, “Why You Little….”
Why does Kenny Loggins hate kids?
That was brilliant….I think I love you.
Billy Mays is furious because his son said the oxi-clean wouldn’t take the stain out of Mom’s award winning quilt.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Wainscott you’re my kinda guy!
i LOVE the caption lol
I can see that the photographer was sort of going with two themes here:
black and white (show in background quilt, and then in the clothes of the people); choking. Except dad is wearing a pink shirt and is the only one doing the choke. Mom is doing a half-hearted choke on dad.
Adherence to themes=fail.
Very true. You can tell the photographer is trying to have fun with people who just want a normal family photo. The poor daughter has a look of crap-this-is-gonna-be-framed-on-the-wall-where-all-my-friends-can-see. I know that look well…
thats clearly blue not black on the quilt.. but maybe thats why it was a fail?
i dont know, but yes, all very true.
Yes, actually, more navy blue than black, for sure. Fail!
SERENITY NOW!!! SERENITY NOW!!!!
Best comment ever!
Haha, I love how the mom’s kinda looking over dad’s shoulder just now noticing the attempt on her son’s life XD
I am trying to figure out why the sister looks so confused…. Actually, she looks kind of scared to be taking a picture with those wierd folks.
