And apparently enjoying a glass of red wine.

911 once more, can be by now 9 many years I will nevertheless remember everthing, quite Say day, Wish every little thing can easily grow to be previous tense with me.
Yes, I guess many Americans with their irrational obsessions with age and alcohol could think a wine glass is “awkward.” *rolls eyes*
It’s an interesting photo composition. And I don’t see when the kid with a drink in the background is awkward. It could be anything.
By the age of eleven, my wine palette hadn’t quite developed to red. I was still somewhere in my sauvignon blanc phase.
All the checked shirts look alike! LOL
The one kid is VERY patriotic to have a flag stuck in his head.
We know who’s going to be the “cool” uncle in a few years…
and as for red wine, they are my brothers, well mostly, well at least half, actually I know the names of most of them.
ahahaha the kid in the back with the wine glass is one of my best friends from high school / college. his sister submitted this. hilarious.
children of the corn?
i actually like this pic. looks like a poster for a movie or a book cover
The 4 kids in back are leaning on the railing of a very narrow porch
what i find most awkward is that the whole lot of them looks like they are perched on a second story window ledge!
Ah, there’s nothing like a little “Jesus Juice” to celebrate your patriotism!
Check your spoons… I think the kid with the evil eyebrow thing going on just bent them all using the power of his mind….
I actually LOVE this picture exactly as it is. As for the kid with the glass and the eyebrow kid, keep an eye on them. We’ll probably all work for them one day.
I soooo want to buy this as postcards to send. Link me to CafePress please!
It’s the best photo EVER! Is it in Britain?
yes, missy, home owners in britain often hang the american flag from their front doors; it’s this little quirk they have.
its in chicago actually
How’d you know its in Chicago? I was thinking that, actually. I grew up there.
3 by 5 American flag $ 4.00
Flag pole and mounting brackets $6.00
Nicer shirts for the occasion $10.00 each
realising you don’t have that perfect American family you always envisioned yourself having…priceless
I’m coming to get you Barbara….
I actually snorted at work looking at this one… and did you know you can buy beer at McDonald’s here in France? Even if you’re 12 !
I am so there.
The kid in the front scares me a little.
Photoshopped? Whatever. Why on earth would anyone photoshop this? And the “evidence” folks are listing is weak, at best. This photo is real. But not very awkward, if you ask me.
But I have to point out that in some states it is perfectly legal for minors to consume alcohol with their parents. I had good friends years ago who always served their kids a small amount of wine with the Sunday meal. And I myself was known to share a beer with my grandfather from time to time. It’s not always illicit.
What a bunch of deviants… :O
Yeah, I’d have totally hung out with these guys when I was that age. Can’t even choose a favorite! Funny kids.
Wonder when and where this was taken….the second kid from the front looks exactly like my cousin although about 10 years ago.
seriously guys- not every picture is photoshopped, talk about a buzz kill. It’s not all a conspiracy!
And who really cares if it was Photoshopped or not? It’s funny.
My cousins. Dear jeezus, it’s my cousins.
Honestly, I’m more concerned about the kid with a flag growing out of his head than the kid drinking alcohol.
maybe because…..this was photoshopped.
the kid in the green polo gives it away, look at the arms next to him. the light also is wayyy different on each of them. oh well.
cheers boys, cheers…
this has to be photoshopped… the guy with the wine is blurry, the edges of everyone else are too crisp, and everyone’s poses are too unnatural, even to be “awkward”.
also, the kid in the green shirt, his left arm (away from the building) is messed with, bad editing job.
Photoshopped? Doesn’t make any sense to photoshop something like this. The point of this photo is the kid with the wine glass.
Scott, never respond to the photoshop conspiracy theorists. It only fuels their delusions…
And never respond to the Van Helsing jokes either . . .
hes right–it is photoshopped… that kid with the red hair wasnt even THERE that day…
The kid in front is a bookie. He’s got their bets on the holiday games on that slip of paper and was just about to slip off when the photographer came around the corner.
And today on Maury – One of you is revealed to NOT be the father….
Am I the only one who’s noticed that green polo shirt boy appears to have been speared in the head with the flagpole and to have a shortened third arm growing out of his left sleeve?
red headed kid…not related.
The kids wearing plaid are definitely brothers though, right? C’mon, just look at them!
Hey that was MY grape koolaid, kid!
Oh, so you have a red headed stepchild.
That just shows what kind of family I came from. My first thought wasn’t that the kid was drinking something alcoholic, it was that everyone in the family was passive-aggresively avoiding doing the dishes and this is the only thing left from which to drink a Coke. If you’ve ever eaten a snack with a relish fork or sipped Kool-Aid from a champagne flute, you know what I’m talking about.
YES! i particularly enjoy eating ice cream from a ramekin!
Alicia, you are so BAD!!!
I just googled ramekin.We learn things everyday
OMG – you NAILED it!
Or . . . drinking Coke from a wineglass because it makes you feel bad@$$, just like dyeing your Ginger Ale green on St. Patrick’s Day because you’re too young to drink green beer!
Maybe he just wanted to look cool, let’s hope because he sure as he!! doesn’t look drinking age!
well dressed smiling kids (obviously not aunt Marneys house) nice neghborhood, well tended lawns, and an American flag, NO creey clowns, naked people, grandma heads or crossbows…why is this awkward ?
I don’t see awkwardness either. The kids look like they are having fun. Love the eyebrow guy…
The large, mostly empty wine glass in the last kid’s hand.
Of course it’s aunt Marney’s house, for the sake of survival, EVERYONE’S allowed to drink red wine at Aunt Marnie’s house. (they bring in their own, not the crappy clos du bois that she likes).
In addition to the photos, another hilarious aspect of AFP is the number of knotheads who need the photos explained to them.
Face it. With an aunt like Marney, you’d be driven to drink, too.
She is SUCH a b*tch.
Couldn’t be Marney’s house, wouldn’t make the dress code. I must agree about the wine, though.
Uncle Mike probably dressed them – you know how “he” is.
ha ha Rachel, I Like the reference to it not being aunt Marney’s house!
There’s Prince Harry second from the top!
Awkward Rule #363: Leaning up against, peeking around, or pretending to support any wall, cliff or stationary structure. Oh yes, and underage drinking.
The whole national day celebrations went tiXX-up when the they decided to invite the french nephew!
Let’s start clockwise from l-r: the jock, the brain, the alcoholic, the law-breaker, the player, and the stoner. Are they the new Brat-Pack?
Good Lord! Tell us that just juice or not what it says it looks like!! Lol
where are they now? (foreground to background)
1. Owns computer company, 7th richest man in the world
2. Construction worker, happily married with 10 kids
3. Congressman, acquitted on 8 charges of bribery and extortion
4. Lead singer, rock band
5. Guitarist, same band
6. Agent, same band
And awesome. Good show!
This is another one of those pictures (like the one with the kid directly behind the mom) where I didn’t immediately spot the awkward element of the picture. These type of pictures pay dividends in laughs when compared to the obviously weird pictures. Love the subtle element that makes what would be a pretty normal picture into . . . well . . . this kind of picture.
…can someone help me, PLEASE??!! – which “Kids Are Alright” ??! i don´t get it… …they all look not very alright/happy.
the main point is, that you can see “the … american flag”. typical. always the same…
with a shake of the head “no no no…”
ha ha… no the problem is the boy in the back appears to be drinking a glass of red wine. Look closer. )
..aahhhh, i see – ok. thanks. ROCK`n ROLL.
…and awkward wine-o looks like he might fall off the balcony. party foul!
Other than wine-o and the underdressed evil eyebrow, this picture is pretty cute.
Umm, Sibling photo??
Those kids are so bad@$$.
