    Purple haze all in my brain
    Lately things just don’t seem the same
    Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
    ‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky!

    uh… oops.

  4. SarahKate says:

    Wow, they have really ticked off the LOST Smoke Monster, I’ve never seen it turn red before!

  5. I'm Lost says:

    This was an early camera test for Lost smoke monster. Black narrowly beat out magenta.

    Two sons on right seem remarkably unfazed by the whole thing. Youngest is more interested in something happening off to the side.

    matching t-shirts and chemical poisoning — yeah, it’s a party!

  18. lisalisa says:

    i love how the little one in the front left looks like he’s in a cloud of tear gas. good family times.

  19. El Kev says:

    This is what it looks like when ninjas go on hiking trips.

  20. The Mist: July 4th edition

  21. Emer says:

    Hilariously, the smoke cloud looks more like a backwards French flag than anything else…

  22. Vacatiuon photos from Lost Island. A photo with the smoke monster is $10 and a required waiver is mandatory. Sometimes, the bad people in the group will be thown into the trees and killed. Sad, but what a great vacation story.

  23. Orin says:

    Dammit! I just had Vietnam flashback!

  24. Denise says:

    It takes a highly skilled photographer to compose such an awkward photo. And watch out, Junior’s about to pee his pants. Give a kid some warning, sheesh!

  25. howaboutthat says:

    Poor Jimmy, we always suspected he was an airhead.

  26. Winry says:

    Haha look, the child’s rubbing his eyes from the smoke.

  27. lovedoctormike says:

    If what they say about second-hand smoke is true, then someone here will need an oncologist.

  28. grimey says:



    Aww, lil’ Brendan & Brandon are going to be coughing up magenta phlegm for the rest of the weekend!

  30. bigdaddybeef says:

    the smoke monster from “LOST” on vacation with the family.

  31. Graziela says:

    Looks like ol’ smokey from LOST is about to claim its next victim, in a festive shade of purple. 😉

  32. Insanewiches says:

    The taller kid has got smoke in his eyes and looks like he’s going to cry…the smaller one is low enough and couldn’t care less! Funny.

  33. Wainscott says:

    It was at this moment that dad realized he should have payed attention to the warning sign posted on the barbed wire fence they scaled to get into the woods that was the training grounds for the national guards. Check out little man who spotted the sniper in the grassy knoll to the left of the family right after the smoke grenades went off.

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

    Whose head explodes purple!?!?!? I mean really, come on!!!

  35. Señor_Citizen says:

    More importantly, dig the matching t-shirts!

  36. Mark says:

    Is that smoke or just a big, magenta hairdo?

  37. theguid says:

    I know there’s fun in there, let’s smoke it out ’em!

  38. Kurtacus says:

    This settles it, Jimmy, no more sugared beets for your holiday side dish. It just doesn’t sit well with your digestive system.

  40. Deb says:

    Nothing makes a holiday memory like billows of oddly-colored smoke, I guess…

  41. SLC says:

    middle child’s eyes never recovered…

  42. Juno and Pancakes says:

    Sorry… I just don’t understand this. I must be in a fog.

  43. Frank says:

    Look at all that smoke coming from his neck after his head popped off.

  44. woahhhh! what is that smoky stuff?

  45. emm says:

    dad, mom, the kids, and the ghost of barney…
