Clearly, all of the other props were occupied at this photo studio.

Please someone tell us this is not for his Facebook profile photo.
He’s still stuck on Friendster
Still chuckling at Punix’s comment. And Délice sums it up in the final sentence.
My only guess (in an attempt to find some sense of normalcy) is that he is assisting the photog in a new prop set up? A test shot if you will…. Maybe? Am I reaching?
Seriously???? too hysterical for words…wish I knew the story behind this one.
I’ll avoid the obvious issues with this photo, and just point out that he’s dangerously close to mullet territory.
c’mon people, this is hot and you know it. 😉
Clearly, the compound bow was not available.
Wait no one is going to mention the sheet of plastic on the floor… which I thought that was kind of disturbing. Why would you cover the floor with plastic?
Geez mom, you are always putting Jimmy on a pedestal.
OMG the caption is hilarious. I want to know why there’s a plastic drop-cloth under the column…
Is that….cellophane….on the floor?
Yeah right this photo is not srs business.
i like how, if you look at his face for a few seconds, you can actually HEAR him saying “admit it. i know you’re jealous.”
Maybe I am,Trevin, maybe I am.
thats a nice mini mullet.
Dang, I meant gangsta awkward.
What’s the problem, folks? He’s perfect! Wonderfully random. More power to him.:))
“You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me
You needed me”
Oh dear! :s
Oh. My. God.
My goodness this is awkward.
Is this what one calls- Dandy? I say, bravo to anyone who can balance all that on one of those columns with such grace!
This is EXACTLY what one would call dandy. Love it!!
LEAVE MY SON ALONE, I THINK HE LOOKS SOOOOOO CUTE!?!?
LOVE the backdrop.
This photo, in my humble opinion, far exeeds the maximum awkwardness threshold. Not only is that a 16 year oldish boy sitting on a column, which would already be quite awkward, he is holding a lace fan and a lace umbrella. I would say then that this is awkwardness to the third power, but if you factor in the fake room in the background, the white tie, and the semi-content expression on his face, I think we have gone off the charts in awkward.
Simply beautiful – awkward perfection.
The odd “grandma-esque” plastic floor cover really just caps it.
I have to agree on this crossing the maximum awkwardness threshold. This goes far beyond the legal limit and seems to be close to life threatening levels of awkwardness exposure.
There must be some sort of safety gear available at this level of awkwardness.
Agreed. And the plastic runner on the floor under the pillar is far, far too much.
Don’t forget the awesomeness of the mullet!
I cannot quit looking at the expression on his face. He is quite content with our discomfort.
Ditto that. My mind boggles from the awkwardness in this photo. I don’t even know where to begin, really. I need to go sit alone somewhere in the dark now until the impression of this uber-awkward image has faded from my scorched corneas.
As hard as it may be, let’s set the lace fan and parasol aside and ignore for a moment the logistics of mounting (tee hee) that pedestal. Why would anyone choose a shoulder high post as a good sitting spot for a picture?! I mean, from the photographer’s standpoint, that makes the focal point of the photo super top heavy. And from the customer’s standpoint, why would you let a whacked out photographer talk you into this–who among your loved ones would actually hang such a goofy photo on their wall?!
Let us not forget the perfectly pointed toe. I’m dyin’ here. This picture is so wrong on so many levels its perfect in its wrongness lmbo !!!!!!!!
Astonishing! However, if the subject does not appear to be at the slightest ill at ease in his predicament, can it truly be said to be, well, awkward?
On the other hand, I feel awkward just looking at it, so the question is most likely moot.
Delice, You’re killing me and all the responses to yours just finished me off. TOO FUNNY!!!!!
I believe this photo almost needs a new word as Awkward is not enough, it’s super awkward, Sawkward, or Mega Awkward, Mawkward, or really it’s Mega Super Awkward, MeSawkward. Whatever it is, it is truly Awkward Perfection.
Let’s try Awksome . . . a hybrid for awkwardly awesome! 🙂
That’s “pretty” disturbing.
O…M…G… The only thing missing is a petticoat and a crossbow!
Compound bow FTW!
Way to be brave though.
wow… where do I even start!!!??? This is very odd!
and he actually agreed to do this???
Clearly he is a complete baller. He’s rockin’ that lacey fan and umbrella like hard core.
My question is this…how did he get up there?
Wow… this really is kind of amazing.
Why? Why?! WHY?!
That was MY reaction!
I think I just died a little. What poise!
I’m assuming he actually wanted those props??
Because, I highly doubt, any man could ever be talked into the lacy umbrella/lacy hand fan/leg cross pose.
I have many questions about this photo, but sticking to the practicalities: How did he get on the pillar with his hands full?
Simplest thing in the world. He hops onto the pillar and then the photog hands him the props.
I think it’s a great picture – he’s obviously having a good time. Look at that confident stare, says “I can do anything.” AND the white tie. I’d hire this kid, based solely on this photograph.
the sound of wit going right over your head
Hire him for what?
Do you think he lost a bet?
Gawd, I hope so…
Or he’s just a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean.
The ladies props in Pirates of the Caribbean.
props to that.
Okay does anyone know the story behing this pic?
At least he’s not wearing white socks….
Yes. Because white socks would make this photo awkward.
I was thinking the same thing
He’s just so FAAABUULOOUUS! Now, we await a comment about a compound bow.
Hahaha! I’m laughing so hard I cant think of anything witty to say!
I’m feeling the EXACY same way! Hahahahahahaha!
He’s not actually sitting on that pedestal; he’s hovering…
WOW! There are NO words……
