Beyond a reasonable point of casualness.

This must be his eharmony profile pic.
Good call! He’s showing himself to be flexible (take that however you want!) without being so forward as to mention it.
This is not Cap’n Morgan, it’s ADMIRAL Morgan! Ahoy, matey!
Inventor of THE ‘ THIGHMASTER’ !
The given caption describes this perfectly, but I’m imagining some others:
“Got a little too much captain in him.”
“The human ‘r’ enjoys a leisurely cruise.”
love the way he casually rests his arm on his awkward leg, like thats how he usually spends his time on a boat looking out at the view
I think I heard something tear….and I’m not talking about the pants….
I keep coming back to this pic, I dont think Ive ever laughed so hard at a pic on this site. This is absolutely great. The comments on this one are the kicker.
That…is a Holland America ship. The S.S. Awkwardam.
Is he marking his territory?
This picture is the visual definition of awkward!
If you tie a string between his legs, it’ll look like a compound bow.
he looks like a weatherman. and this looks like something a weatherman would do.
“Today’s forecast: cloudy, with a chance of luuuuuv.”
Ouch, I got a cramp in my leg so put I it up to stretch and there’s the photographer… “no don’t take my pict… okay just one.”
The rest is history!
What a flexible man! I’m sure he just wanted to try a different pose from your typical “I’m on a cruise ship photo…” you know… the grabbing on the hand rails looking out at sea in deep contemplation…those types of pictures…this is more like “I want to free myself from the restraints of the high class…look I’m having fun stretching!” Very cute
now we know where they keep the big fog horn
this flippin cracked me up
Bob, the cruise activities director and avid MacGyver fan, did not want to cancel the highly publicized limbo contest when the pole washed ashore, so he improvised.
nice form, old chap!
I can think of only 1 of 2 possibilities for a comment and I couldn’t decide. So you get both.
1–Anyone remember the old cartoon show, Plastic Man? Well, this is the audition process for the live action film, set on a boat.
2–To the person that wondered if he got kicked out of the Captain’s Lounge, he IS the Captain. It’s casual day.
What in the world? This pic makes my leg hurt. How in the heck did he accomplish this position? And more importantly, what possessed him to pose like this? I can just hear the photog – ok now steve, lift your leg so it looks casual – no, not that rung – a little higher – no – one more – ok, that’s it – perfecto! Aside from the awkwardness of the pic, this guy definitely has a spot on the much-dreaded “Glamour Don’t” list.
Got a little captain in ya?
I believe he’s trying to say he’s got a lot of captain in him.
I wonder how many other “awkward” positions this man can get into?
This guys got one leg up on the awkward competition!
I’d like to think he knows it’s awkward and is in on the joke. In which case, I want to know this man!
I’m betting that he swims in a white speedo….
Hmmm. White pants, black stripped socks, and brown shoes. I sure hope that the only reason he’s wearing that particular combination is because that is the only one he can get to move like that!
I laughed so hard that the tears made my waterproof mascara run.
Is he in pain, or is he proud of himself for being able to lift his leg so high?
This could be THE most awkward picture I have seen so far on this site because the more I stare at it, the less I get used to it. I think it is actually making me uncomfortable. Bravo.
Yes…even more awkward now…
I had to look again today…I got awkward shivers…
the best ones do make you look and look again
wow you’re right, lol…
I looked again today…I can’t stay away! I love it! I’d like an 8×10 please!
an even more awkward version of the ‘knee shelf’
This is the Love Boat, and he’s extremely enthusiastic!
It’s always a good idea to stretch out your groin before disembarking on the Love Boat. Nothing more awkward than a groin pull right in the middle of Charo’s encore of “Cuchi, Chuchi”
This is what happens when the NYC Ballet is on hiatus. Dancers go on vacation and think they are Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Looks like he’s doing the Cotton-eyed Joe.
What… is he trying out to be a ballerina?
How hard must it have been for him to even get into that position? I hear pants ripping.
Actually, from the signage, he’s not on a cruise ship but on a ferry!
Plausible explanation: he works for customs and he’ll be inspecting cars as they roll off the ramp in his own unique way.
I don’t think he’s on a ferry – ferries don’t have those sorts of seats lined up for sunbathing in.
Someone caught this picture mid-jump? Somewhere there is a suicide note with his name on it!
He’s like a life-sized mullet. Business up top, party down below.
I follow this website constantly and have never-ever commented before, but this description made me weep with joy.
You my friend just won the internets for that comment!
I am seriously crying laughing from that comment !!
The best thing I have ever heard!!! This pic is priceless, one of the best that I have seen so far. WOOHOO!!!
That actually make me LOL – how do I become a life sized mullet?
I want to be a life-size mullet too!
There appears to be four other rungs on the railing that would’ve been more comfortable for this pose.
His thinking: Four rungs don’t make a right…..
this joke is awkward…
Four rungs don’t make a right … made me laugh out loud.
this is just incredible awkwardness… keep up the good work!
quoting Sally O’Malley (Molly Shannon from SNL) “I like to KICK, STREEETCH, and KICK, because I’m 50, 50 years old!!”
HA HA HA! Love that!
Don’t you mean “I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVVVVVE IT!”
HAHA!!! Loving the Sally O’Malley reference! Guess I’m not the only one who likes that skit!
I love how the pantlegs are just a leetle bit too short. Or that may be just the bizarre pose that creates that illusion.
Stretching out prior to the onboard karaoke/dance tournament?
yes. it must be. there is no other explanation for this.
I absolutely love this! It’s one of my favorites thus far. What compells this sort of action? He is obviously a very handsome, strapping young man…looks fairly educated. And the one taking the picture??? Why would this be encouraged?
still can’t stop laughing…
Striped socks with a plaid shirt cost him a seat at the captain’s table.
He’s kinda cute…
He’s kinda flamboyant…
I’m no physician, but from the looks of his unnatural pose, all the while maintaining a cool, casual smile, only two words come to mind.
you made me pee some.
I blew coffee through my nose.
just soiled myself
Popped a button!
Im choking over here!!!!
I’m crying! hilarious!
