    And the neighbors will say “I don’t know what happened. He seemed like such a nice quiet boy.”

    I’m reminded of the Jolly Green Giant

    • Hannelina says:

      Yeah? What are they? The Jolly Green Corn?

      You know, your comment could offend the Jolly Green Giant.
      You better watch out!

  9. Patric says:

    They kinda reminded me of Okra’s who are breathing.

  10. Good says:

    Um awkward big time weird

  11. IAmNoOne says:

    They knew dad was too cheap to buy a christmas tree, but no one had the heart to call him on it.

  12. Maya B says:

    Some family pictures are just better left unexplained.

    Awkward family photography 101: “Be sure the clothes your family is wearing has been ironed. Creases and folds will draw attention away from their smiling faces.”

  14. Sweet says:

    We no harm you. Take us to your leader

  15. missturtle says:

    The costumes are not as awkward AS THE ROOM THEY ARE IN!!!

  16. Nutti95 says:

    Cactus is singular.
    Cacti are plural.
    Cactiis is simply not a word.

    Natasha, London.

    • Hannelina says:

      It is in America! 😉

    • pplzizcrazy says:

      Unless they were trying to say “cactuses” which is also acceptable as the plural, although cacti is listed first in the dictionary entry which indicates it’s the preferred usage.

      /pedantic mode off

  17. Christine says:

    Haha, the little one’s head is so pointy.

  18. I wouldn’t have raised my hand either.

  19. Lacie says:

    WOW!!! Really? I think for one of the first times in my life I am left absolutely speechless. Not quite sure what to say about this one….

  20. Chazlette says:

    Who here likes asparagus, raise your hand?

  21. Joanne says:

    It’s not easy being green!

  22. Maggie says:

    I think I went to school with those kids. Weird. They never gave any indication that was what they did with their spare time

  23. Pippa says:

    Looks more like seaweed to me…!

  24. robotflatulence says:

    Hmm…these Oompa Loompas aren’t quite ripe yet.

  25. Billdave says:

    All these people look like folks I know and love. Is that good or bad? good i think. i love the cacti!

  26. Susan says:

    Children of the Corn?

  27. Tulip says:

    Is the tall cactus Patrick Stuart?!

  28. Mrs. Oh says:

    Now if we could get someone to dress as bread and get the Bacon Boys here…we can make a BLT.

  29. kp says:

    Their cactus arm pose makes them all look like mimes trapped in an invisible boxes.

  30. bee says:

    This is the definition of awkward. o_O

  31. Melba says:

    I could be wrong, but I’m thinking that if you unzipped those suits, you’d find….CORN!

  32. Don says:

    In regards to the annual “Farnsworth family costume party” Jim could have sworn his wife said “Broccoli Spears” not Brittany Spears when he went to order.

  33. Amice says:

    So many times have I wanted the back story….never more so than now.

    • lovedoctormike says:

      I agree…. ! There is just too many things wrong here. My poor brain is overloading. Which one is responsible for the “green tea”?

  34. Sarah says:

    They seem to be Saguaro cactii. According to wikipedia, it takes a long time before they grow “arms”.

    In this photo, the oldest cactii (mom & dad) have two arms. The medium cactii (older brothers) have one arm. The youngest cactus (younger brother) has no arms. Very accurate depiction. I wonder – was it intentional?

  35. NuttyMom says:

    BAhahahaha I love the look on the girl’s face.

  36. Family Man says:

    An invasion force from Remulak in disguise.

  37. steve says:

    Yes, they are coneheads in another failed attempt to “blend in”.

  38. Susan says:

    The house, and the hangers, look like they’re from England.

  39. Suzanne says:

    What’s with the hangers? Going green with clothes dryer?

  40. Denise says:

    They should have gone all out and painted their faces and hands green. I’m just sayin’…

  41. Jenany says:

    Looks like they’re being robbed by a cactus nectar thief. “Stick ’em up”.

  42. Melba says:

    They are ‘lucky bamboo’.

  43. Tatjanna says:

    that’s just mean! LOL

  44. Kim says:

    Cacti? Or Sleestaks?

  45. Amy says:

    litte one on the left: “You shall all feel my wrath!”

  46. Cincha says:

    The poor kid on the far left looks miserable.

    If they are supposed to be cactii, why does the girl with glasses wear what looks like a bandolier full of bullets?

  47. Poetikat says:

    I’m thinking “Invasion of the Bodysnatchers”.

  48. Kitten says:

    OMG! The one on the left is killing me! Never has a face said “can I take it off now?” more than that!

  49. Jim Jones says:

    We’re Gumby, Damn It!!!
