    Later that afternoon, the same child was caught smokin’ papa’s cigarettes and then was forced to smoke the entire pack as a lesson…..some kids will never learn

  2. John says:

    You know what’s really awkward? The fact that this photo (with THAT haircut, THOSE shorts, and THAT shirt) isn’t nearly as old as you think. Notice the cell phone on his hip . . .

  3. Leghound says:

    Hurry up Mable!The kid won’t burn forever!If thats a boy it is awkward.The matchimg outfits add
    something though.

  4. Pat says:

    Hey mom, don’t drop the camera and help out… all means snap the photo first!

      Fourth of July picnics always call for a rousing game of lawn darts – lighting them up only ads to the hilarity.

  5. Gravy says:

    …I think he’s powering up, not being burned at all.

    Notice the feet spaced at shoulders length distance. The tightly clenched fists.

    THIS, ladies & gentlemen, is textbook Son Gokuo.

  6. Cincoflex says:

    Aw man, Why are you traumatizing Cousin Oliver like that?

  7. Leah says:

    Do you think Dad can sit in those shorts???

  8. stacey says:

    So, what is the general concensus. What is more annoying, the crossbow jokes, or the “this is photoshopped” comments? I’m just saying. Poor kiddo

  9. Here To Remind You says:

    In case anyone didn’t read the fifty-some comments about this, SO CLOSE TO THE PROPANE TANK. OH MAH GOD.

  10. Snowrider says:

    Are we certain that’s not a flaming arrow shot from a……..

  11. Sam says:

    Oblivious dad FTW!

  12. Maureen says:

    I’m guessing mom is holding the camera. I wonder how many times they tried this before they got just the right shot.

  13. Ann O. Nymous says:

    Does anyone read the other comments before posting their own? Propane tank mentions at 9:02am, 9:07am, 9:09am, 9:17am……….10:09am

  14. D-Mo says:

    Where do I start? The child is not shod, although the adult clearly had the forethought to wear flip-flops. He is lighting a sparkler by a propane tank. Last but not least, he thinks the child is a Roman candle.

  15. Jim Kingsepp says:

    Notice the propane tank in the background. Not a good scene all around.

  16. Angel says:

    Poor baby! 🙁

    That hurts I know I have been burned by one that was dropped before.

  17. famousamy says:

    Awww… and LOL.

  19. eve says:

    OMG! I hope they only see each other on visiting day at the prison. Who’s taking this picture? The other irresponsible parent?

  20. TREEMAN says:


  21. SusieQ says:

    Good Lord, I hope the valve isn’t open on the propane tank!

  22. KR says:

    Shoot, even with parental supervision by the looks of it.

  23. lionebraska says:

    It looks like the guy has just thrown that on the kid’s foot!

  24. Sissy says:

    I think the child was more traumatized by dad’s choice of shorts. And is that a gas tank behind that kid?!

  25. Modine says:

    Did Dad just throw a firecracker at the baby’s foot, or is he trying out a magic trick?

  26. princessluceval says:

    Aw, poor little guy! I can’t imagine getting the picture right at that moment!

  27. WVBOBW says:

    Ye–OUCH. Seriously? Seriously?
    Priceless expression on the kid’s face.

  28. Extra bonus points for the gas canisters behind the kid while playing around with fireworks!

  29. laurie says:

    This little boy and the Slip ‘n’ Slide girl were simply made for each other.

  30. MB says:

    Those darn adults always ruin all the fun!

  31. john in co says:

    Even though it’s horrible the firework is going of on the kid’s foot (nice one, pops) it’s a great shot!

  32. Lara says:

    next to the propane tank… awesome.

  33. Scott says:

    Good thing it landed between the toes and not on the propane tank just behind him!

  34. Shanz says:

    They’re not close enough to the Propane Tank.

  35. Alyse says:

    I love the look of intense concern on dads face

  36. Karl says:

    They should move those fireworks closer to the propane.

  37. Greatdaniel13 says:

    Dad: “You see what happens when you dont properly handle fireworks?! Now let me show you what happens when you dont properly handle a propane tank.”

  38. drt says:

    “Next up… I’m a gunna put suspenders on the tank of propane and lightin’ that up too. Eeehaw!”

  39. Hannah says:

    Nice shorts!! Meow!

  40. Peg says:

    Love to propane tank in the background… always find the most AWKWARD place to light things, like kid’s toes, on fire!

  41. megatron says:

    those shorts are entirely too short/tight. the kid has a perfectly shaped bowl cut though. very nice. it’s a shame the sparkler got out of control…

  42. Olivia726 says:

    Maybe he should move closer to the gas bottle.

  43. Juls says:

    Oh come on! Quit being a whiny baby. You’ve got nine other toes!

  44. I especially love the use of fireworks next to the propane tank. Nice!

  45. …or apparently even WITH parental supervision.

  46. cavemanaman says:

    the shorts are far more awkward than the third degree burns…

  47. BigDaddyAt says:

    Maybe he should get a little closer to that propane tank…his foot might not hurt so much.

  48. Looks kind of photo-shopped.

  49. Leah says:

    Ouch! Poor kid!
