    The teen is just being cool.

  5. Andy says:

    One of these things is not like the other…

    “it’s only teenage wasteland.”

  7. cynthia says:

    “i photo alone”

  8. Kira says:

    That looks FREAKISHLY like a guy I go to school with…I’d better call him up and make sure he doesn’t have any siblings!!!

  9. Alexandra says:

    Well, the Jonas Brother had been getting the attention for too long–it’s Jonas sister’s turn

  10. ohno says:

    YEAH! I know her too 🙂
    But photo is priceless.

    I hope the person who took it treasures it!

  11. colleen says:

    Boy on right: “I have to be in the photo, but you can’t make me like it”

  12. notpicperfect says:

    Looks like one of those pictures where a ghost shows up when it was developed

  13. T-bird says:

    “One of these kids ain’t doin’ the same thing, one of these kids…”

  14. Tam says:

    The scrapped version of Wolverine: Origins.

  15. nonameplease says:

    holy crap. i know that girl hahahahahahah

  16. Tocsnai says:

    The awkwardness here is the awkwardness of being an early teen. Any photo, any occasion: this kid’s going to be a lump in the lens.

    The sweetness of the captured moment on the other side is such an ephemeral thing, though. That wrinkly gown, and the grandpa’s paunch with the tie over it, and the grandma conversing with her hands like she always did, and the pensive little finger tuck of our graduate…. It all makes me know how wonderful this photo will be in ten or twenty years’ time, for her anyway. I hope she appreciates this picture, goofy kid on the side and all. It’s a treasure.

  17. Kimberly says:

    This was pic was taken back when it was all the rage to look like a young Gilbert Gottfried.

  18. mary says:

    He’s waiting for his REAL family to come pick him up.

  19. emm says:

    actually, the kid is part of a family off to the left. thats why hes looking the other direction…

  20. Kelli says:

    Oh, Charlotte…bonus Jonas! That brought tears to my eyes!

  21. MST says:

    Grandma says: “What? Speak up. I don’t hear very well with these glasses”.

  22. 12gager says:

    This picture is the best example of when to crop a photo.

  23. Yeah says:

    3 hours previously: “There, Betty. I ‘put a tie on.’ Are you happy now?”

    • Blucat says:

      I was just thinking that that tie looked like a random afterthought, considering it’s loose and “askew” 😉

  24. Meg says:

    I actually know the graduate in the picture, or at least she looks exactly like someone I know. The boy is either a cousin or some random kid, not a brother. Still an odd looking kid though

  25. Daver says:

    The word “shunned” comes to mind.

  26. Ashes says:

    I have the sandals she’s wearing.

  27. DC says:

    This is the Napolean Dynamite of the photo world…Where’s Uncle Rico?

  28. djs says:

    “Hey kid, I already gave you five bucks. Leave us alone already. I don’t want any chiclets.”

  29. RobynS8971 says:

    Are we sure he isn’t the youngest Jonas Brother?

  30. Joanne says:

    Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!! Why does she get all the attention around here? Why is it always about Marcia?

  31. J says:

    He probably didn’t realize that he was in the pic, lol…But, still nonetheless, love the un-ironed gown on the girl and the “Thriller” jacket on the boy. Oh and yeah, Grandma take off those sunglasses and hold em’, lol!

  32. princessluceval says:

    Well, at least it’ll be easy to crop the picture!

  33. Rich says:

    “Billy, move down a step, you don’t look quite awkward enough.”

  34. DorisDay says:

    It’s NIck Jonas — OMG, I love hime.

  35. rwblake says:

    The brother knows that is as close to graduating as he will ever get.

  36. Melba says:

    He’s in a lower grade.

  37. heather says:

    Little did this young lad know in 5 years he and his two brothers would be getting all the attention. Caption this an early Jonas brother photo.

  38. Jeffy says:

    It looks as if there is a very small compound bow concealed under the boy’s jacket.

  39. des says:

    awww poor Nick Jonas.

  40. AC says:

    i can’t get over how daughter looks so much like grandma (im assuming it’s grandma)

  41. Bretto says:

    I like his jacket. Part Old Navy fleece, part Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

  42. IAmNoOne says:

    Later he started his own emo band called As I Stand Alone at my Sister’s Graduation.

  43. steve says:

    He is a bodyguard hired for the event as evidenced by the black outfit and scowl. Granted, his rates are cheaper than Blackwater but he takes his job just as seriously.

  44. Señor_Citizen says:

    You try smiling after learning all your college money was blown on your big sister and a week’s vacation in Vegas for the AARP Convention.

  45. Mom25in5 says:

    Oh yeah, just a typical 14 year old. What the heck am I doing here?!!

  46. Fleabitten says:

    I would too if my mother forgot to iron my graduation gown and I had to wear it straight out of the package, wrinkles and all. Maybe mom didn’t have time after spending all morning blowdrying and styling brother’s hair.

  47. Penny says:

    I just want to know what is up with Grandma’s hand.

  48. Morag says:

    I love the way her gown has so obviously just been shaken out of the box where it was stored!

  49. Kristen says:

    He may be trying to distance himself form the happy group, but those inherited tell-tale bow legs betray his attempt at anonymity.
