    the funniest part about this pic is that im the one being choked…. and i don’t remember this pic at all!

  5. kingmonkey says:

    Holy s***! That little boy looks like me (20 years ago)!

  6. Lacey says:

    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. 🙂

    I’ve got it! What if we use a quilt for a backdrop!

  8. Shannon says:

    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!

  11. jws says:

    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”.

  12. Leequa says:

    Mr. and Mrs. Stranglehold. The daughter’s adopted, obviously.

  13. Pamela says:

    (MOM) “Jim, if you don’t let go of that kid, I swear..I’m gonna choke YOU”!

  14. Chris says:

    This is a choke, right? I sure hope it is.

  15. Penny says:

    Too graphic in nature.

    Mom wins the award for “Best Plastic Smile”

  17. Kimberly says:

    This is the most elaborate “Magic Eye” picture I have ever seen. It’s like the people pop right out at you!

  18. IAmNoOne says:

    This was the last time they ever let dad watch The Simpsons.

  19. JoJo says:

    “Why you litttle…..I’m gonna choke you good!”

  20. jase says:

    this is obviously the simpsons real life portrait before they had maggie. the similarities disturb me.

  21. Abby says:

    He is totally going to get away with it. It’s the perfect crime!

  22. hi kooky says:

    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!

  23. Sarah says:

    This is awesome. My vote goes for this one and its awesome cheesy goodness.

  24. kaitlin says:

    wow, it looks like that little girl is mortfied, or just pissed at her family

  25. Wendy says:

    You can see the panic in the daughters eyes…she knows that she’s next

  26. Bald Outing says:

    way to not have photographic evidence dad.

  27. Bodene says:

    Mom is upset because Dad’s shenanigans are messing up her first shots with her new Whitney Houston hair do.

  28. eric bizzle says:

    to paraphrase Quint from ” Jaws “……..” cold eyes….like a dolls eyes “

  29. Nosferatu says:

    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!

  30. Brandon says:

    Why does Kenny Loggins hate kids?

  31. Wainscott says:

    Billy Mays is furious because his son said the oxi-clean wouldn’t take the stain out of Mom’s award winning quilt.

  32. Pippa says:

    i LOVE the caption lol

  33. Susan says:

    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.

  34. Ummm...........Greg? says:


  35. Nimbus says:

    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.
