    They made a run for the border but after 10 feet they needed to rest.

    Doris: We have to be in and out in sixty seconds
    Ethel: I’ll grab the money from the tellers, you two watch for the cops
    Gladys; What if the security cameras get our picture?
    Doris: That’s where the disguises come in, they’ll be putting an APB out on three Mexican men

    These ladies are under hypnosis…check the spinning black and yelllow wheel in the background

    So this is actually a few of my great aunts, the story is that we always have another world holiday instead of the fourth of july (hence the stars and stripes outfit). To the person who said something about lederhosen, this year’s theme was Oktoberfest. Pictures are forthcoming.

  6. Blucat says:

    the women in left immediately got my attention with her star covered white capri pants. Oh! There’s a matching sweater too, didn’t see it at first. God bless America!

    Cinco de Mayo is a magical time of year at Shady Oaks Nursing Home.

    Gracias por ser un amigo.

  10. Jessica says:

    When I get old, I’m going to wear sombreros, eat red-vines, and walk around in fake mustaches. Just you watch.

      Why wait? Last week we had a fake mustache & eyebrow kit, and they became soul patches, unibrow, sideburns, … it was awesum! My sides are still sore!

  11. doodahman900 says:

    I’m afraid to ask what the devil the little brown thing on the corner of the table is…

  12. Ricky says:

    The Golden Girls er boys hahahaah.

  13. Jay says:

    I’m not really feeling the awkward nor the family in this photo. :/

  14. beuth says:

    I’m not sure what the theme is supposed to be, but I have a feeling they have one of those old-school, horribly un-PC names for it.

  15. TJ says:

    Not awkward. Sweet!

  16. Denise says:

    As long as your stars and stripes match, you’re set.

  17. Kenny says:

    Lady #1: En St. Olaf, Halston Schnoopflavoraguen tene un grande pene. Los caballos eran envidioso.
    Lady #2: !Ay callate, Rosita!
    Lady #3: !Vamos a come cheesecake!

  18. Monty says:

    Gracias por ser un amiga

    Amigas De Oro!

  19. magillicuddy says:

    very funny but what’s with the licorice?

  20. I hope when I get really old, that I am just like these ladies. They look fun!

  21. Matt says:

    Not awkward.

  22. XLscooper says:

    Badges? We don’t need no stinkin badges!!!

  23. eric bizzle says:

    all hopped up on Red Vines……shame.

  24. Glen says:

    Next one to mention the Redvines gets a compound bow.

  25. Matthew says:

    anyone notice the faint double exposure at the top left corner behind the green sombrero? You can see the transparent corner of a chair, a lamp, and a bit of curtains. Well I’m assuming it is a lamp, its hard to tell cause most of it is behind the chair.

    • Stacey says:

      I’m pretty sure you’re looking through a window there.

    • El Kev says:

      Dude, it’s called a reflection. If you look at THE REST OF THE PICTURE, you’ll see the ladies are on some sort of patio, and your mystery “double exposure” is a window at the side of the building. Eat some more red licorice and your perception will improve.

  26. e says:

    Those hats are photoshopped on. The mustaches, too it looks like.

  27. Lily says:

    I hear next week the trio will be wearing Lederhosen and eating Milk Duds as they continue their salute to Cultures of the World.

  28. smee says:

    But just wait until they break into “My Little Buttercup”.

  29. Cheesewhiz says:

    Hahaha…I LOVE this!!! These ladies rock!!!

  30. Pippa says:

    This photo isn’t awkward, it’s awesome!

  31. camille says:

    hahahha notice the red vines

  32. Stu Padazzo says:


  33. ardy says:

    i give them mad props for the red vines! yes!

  34. Jenn says:

    Someone forgot to take her hormones…

  35. Kattjake says:

    Maybe someone hypnotized them with that yellow and black spinning object.

  36. Cloud says:

    And this is why I’m cryogenically freezing myself before I reach my sixties. Ole!

  37. Travis says:

    Monthly collection for Just For Men Mustache and Beard Black #2

  38. Penny says:

    nice caption!

  39. topher2 says:

    These are the kind of people I need in my life.

  40. ERICKA says:

    Aww, I think this is adorable!

  41. Kitten says:

    I wanna meet those gals. I’ll bet they’re a HOOT!

  42. Kat says:

    Best caption yet!

  43. Laura says:


  44. steve says:

    Given the amount of red licorice they consume, it is no wonder they have moustaches!

  45. Erin says:

    I’ve never been to a “wear a sombrero/fake moustache and balance your checkbook party!”

  46. Paul says:

    This is also very convincingly photoshopped.

    • Adam says:

      Might I add, poorly photoshopped?

    • Hannelina says:

      Thanks! I was just trying to figure that out.

    • bsheer says:

      Ya, pretty fake.

    • Mark says:

      Once again these accusations are baffling. Paul, how do you distinguish between something that is “very convincingly photoshopped” and something that’s just a photo? It’s almost saying that it must be photoshopped because it looks legit.

      Let’s apply Ockham’s razor. It’s possible someone found photos of three sombreros which happened to be at angles corresponding to the direction of the heads and happened to be lit correctly. It’s possible. But it strikes me as much less possible than simply snapping a picture of older women wearing sombreros.

      You might want to call off the protest march, Jenni.

      • Philthy82 says:

        This. Photoshop is not the 3rd man on the grassy knoll, people.

      • Russell says:

        Calm it down. At this point, people are going to cry photoshop for everything, as a JOKE, that you are just not getting.

        • Betsy says:

          Yes.. And this “poorly photoshopped” picture, was ironically done by a master of photoshop that knows how to deal with light, reflection, as well as shadows.
          So even if it was photoshopped, which is neither here nor there seeing as though it is still a funny idea, this “photoshopped” picture would still have been done very well.

  47. joaniebaloney83 says:

    I wonder how tequila they drank before this picture was taken.

  48. Don says:

    Pancho returned from the restroom eager to resume the yahtzee game with his compadres. To his horror he found them thumbing through his diary. He stroked his mustache and slowly unholstered his six-shooter…the legend was about to begin.

  49. DGH says:

    The funniest thing in this photo might be the 5 lbs drum of Redvines.
