    Obviously not… men are bigger than women. And I think he’s quite ripe. After all, his face is evenly colored.

    How to tell if your fiance is really Edward Cullen…

    She’s a good shopper, sampling the fruit before she picks it.

  5. graphicartist2k5 says:

    jeez, EVERYONE thinks they’re spiderman!

  6. Leghound says:

    After careful consideration I’d still cut down the tree and crawl many miles to kiss her elbow.

  7. ColorfulKate says:

    Wow! I think she is holding him up with her amazing strong hands!

  8. paddywack says:

    I think he’s batty. Or at least he has some hangups. But it’s obvious he’ll never leave her; he’s head-over-heels!

  9. IAmNoOne says:

    Al Gore would be disappointing he is treating out environment like that.

  10. summer says:

    Some guys will try anything to look down a woman’s shirt.

  11. Brett Mary says:

    Men grow on trees???

  12. Lisa says:

    I actually think this is really fun. She gets a sweet and romantic picture that she can show off to her family and friends, and he gets to play the slightly dorky-yet-charming superhero – everybody wins! I’d give anything for a guy who was willing to hang upside down from a tree for a chance to kiss me.

  13. modcenturygal says:

    I’m going to go out on a limb here on this one and say…..oh never mind.

  14. troismama says:

    Oh no! It’s just a matter of time before they reproduce and pose for a family pic in animal costumes!

  15. Lacie says:

    Looks to me like she swept him off his feet!

  16. Em says:

    lol i’m looking at this at work on tiny wee laptop screen so had to scroll down to get full picture…
    for a fair old while i thought it was gonna be one seriously tall dude with his neck and head out the frame.

  17. mebinger says:

    I think his could have been a really cute picture if it the photographer would have gotten closer to the subject, but still a neat picture.

  18. Elizabeth says:

    Cliff Hanger…hanging from a cliff! And that’s why they call him Cliff Hanger!




      I KNOW THIS!!


  19. Chels says:

    She does look like MJ. And I don’t mean Michael Jackson.

  20. Melba says:

    If this was cropped differently it wouldn’t be awkward at all. Actually, it’s pretty awesome!

  21. Neon Leon says:

    Proof that guys will do pretty much anything to look down a girl’s top.

  22. Michael says:

    Hey guys I think I know Spiderman’s identity.

  23. Albert says:

    how is he holding on?

  24. cheryl says:

    ok, so trying to imagine the Wolverine version…..Wolverine is such a loner, does he even kiss?? help me out on this one people???!!!

    • Doc says:

      Watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the newest installment in the franchise.

      • Orla says:

        Yeah, the Wolverine caption is what makes it hilarious! I’m just picturing it in my head… very funny!

        Wolverine had an entire life before X-men that no one really knows about… so theoretically he could have had a girlfriend (like the new movie plays out).

  25. Steven says:

    This isn’t really that bad…and they’re both cute! Not awkward per se, just wacky.

  26. Tim says:

    “So, how’d you kids meet?”
    “Oh, he was just hangin’ around…”

  27. Cindy says:

    Well, it is a funny picture, but this looks like another one that is fake…I mean, look at how his arms are–there is no way he is holding onto a branch. And, look how big his head is compared to hers! And, of course, the telltale weird “edges” around him…cute, though, but I prefer real photos.

    • Amy K says:

      Ummm… this seems to be a new type of paranoia going around… it’s called “photoshop-anoia.”

      1) I don’t think it’s fake. I think he’s hanging from his legs and I think it’s pretty cool.

      2) Even if it is fake, who cares! I don’t like pics that are obviously fake, but sitting around debating the authenticity of every picture just isn’t fun… or funny… it’s not even awkward. And since we’ll never REALLY know, it seems like a waste of time.

      Just my opinion, of course…

    • Lovin' it! says:

      He’s holding his shirt up, he’s not trying to look like he’s hanging on the branch with his hands.

    • Bequi says:

      Also, look at the wrinklyes on his shirt and where the shadows are falling. That’s right, they’re lit from “underneath”. Also,. Men have bigger heads than women! It’s science. And like others have said, his face is totally red from hanging upside down. Obviously not a fake.

      (No offense, Amy K, but I DID have fun proving Cindy wrong! 😉 )

      • KGirl says:

        It’s real. I promise. They both went to school with me, and this was one of their engagement pictures. He is in fact hanging from the tree with his legs only… It’s not photoshopped at all!

    • Matt says:

      being the one in the picture i can tell you that it is real. i just didn’t know what to do with my hands. i was hanging by my legs off a branch.

  28. Kim says:

    maybe he just needed that extra *rush* to engage his brain.

  29. Imma_Redneck says:

    How about Robin Hood next with a compound bow and arrow?

  30. Penny says:

    With great power comes great awkwardness!! You slay me!

  31. sassy says:

    Did he forget his super-suit?

  32. bsheer says:

    Look how red in the face he is! They better hurry and take the picture, or he’s gonna POP!

  33. jnc51247 says:

    By the redness of his face, this was not the first take. Getting it “perfect” would be a rush.

  34. I actually like this one. Wish I’d thought of it.

  36. Jay says:

    “One day honey we’ll get you out of this tree. That’s my wedding promise to you.”

  37. Mimi says:

    Going beyond the general picture…I really like her dress.

  38. Lyn says:

    Scares me a bit that his hands appear to be in his pockets, if he slips…it’s broken neck time.

  39. Corrie says:

    Perhaps their first date was to a Spiderman movie?

    She does look a little Kristen Dunst-ish…

  40. Robert Evans says:

    This picture has been flipped. She’s actually the one hanging upside down.

  41. Diana says:

    She has really pretty hair.

  42. TREEMAN says:

    …that´s ridiculous. lol.

  43. MST says:

    I don’t think he’s quite ripe yet.

  44. Barbie says:

    the picture is funny more than awkward, if we only knew the context, it would likely be joking around or sweet, but the caption, the caption makes it hilarious..

    actually, they look petty matchy-matchy, I wonder if they were taking engagement photos and this was just some messing around fun.

  45. Shannon says:

    Seriously!? How? Why?

  46. Christina says:

    How could someone let this happen?! lol

  47. Director59 says:

    you think THAT’S amazing? You should see how he’s holding on to that branch….

  48. rizzo rat says:

    everyone knows that perfect men, ready for commitment grow on trees.

  49. Theresa says:

    they must have enjoyed the first Spiderman Movie…..

  50. Nicole says:

    Now that’s a dedicated fanboy.

    • Hanna says:

      If he was dedicated then he would be wearing the Spidey suit and they would have done a rain dance or at least turned on the sprinklers to simulate rain.
