    mean spirited photo, but VERY funny

  2. Melisa says:

    Family sitting next to each other on a bench – free
    Everybody looking off into the distance – also free

    Grandma sitting in corner, protesting the kneeshelf? Priceless.

  3. jennie says:

    looks to me like granny is trying to push the bench over. some one didnt let her ride shot gun

  4. Joanne says:

    “I’m not sitting near you or doing the knee shelf!” The heck with all of you!

  5. Jody says:

    Gramma’s just not a joiner.

  6. Tina says:

    Poor gramma….:(

  7. Liz says:

    aww, this actually makes me kind of sad :(

  8. Dirk Diggler says:

    Whats more annoying? The compound bow references or the constant photoshop accusations?

    • colleen says:

      Or the Mastercard ad imitations?

      Something? $5
      Somthing else?-$35
      But this?-Priceless!

      Just as annoying

  9. Leghound says:

    Granny acts normal and gets captioned.Ain’t no justice in this world.

  10. Ferriel says:

    I know 6 people that won’t be getting fruitcake next Christmas!

  11. Tif says:

    this is sad!!!

  12. peeing_from_laughing says:

    Best photo/caption combo EVERRRRRR!

  13. Birdie says:

    Haha! What a perfect caption!

  14. Yeah says:

    Let me just say that this website has the BEST commenters. So happy, so complimentary. I guess you just can’t get grumpy when you’re at AFP.

  15. J in Ky says:

    …I don’t really care if it hurts your legs! If you don’t want to participate, then you can just go sit over there by yourself…

  16. Ian says:

    I don’t think she is part of their group. Note the eyes on the knee-shelvers aren’t looking at the camera…

  17. KC says:

    I think Debbie (right center) should have been exiled with grandma for not participating in the awkward sandal dress code. Really Debbie, Sneakers? Where do you get off!

  18. Maya B says:

    Grandma’s knee was still healing from the replacement surgery but the family refused to compomise on their clever photo pose and heartlessly left her out of the fun. They’ll pay for this one day. Oh, they’ll pay!

  19. Patricia says:

    That is Funny!

  20. nicswife says:

    ok, now that we’ve got dirty dancing and Marnies thanksgiving comments all thats missing is “Nana’s looking for her compound bow”

  21. Lynne says:

    I love this photo! And the family resemblance between those women is so strong!

  22. Joni says:

    the guy on the end is losing it. look how he has to use his hand to hold up the kneeshelf. next year, they’re sticking him in back with grandma.


  23. CarrieM says:

    She couldn’t do the knee shelf, so she did a fancy feet-on-the-bench-in-front-of-me move. It was the sportiest pose she could manage.

  24. Melba says:

    The awkwardness actually started in the parking lot when they all climbed out of the Volkswagon Beetle.

  25. Evan says:

    “Ohh Grandma, this pose is for baby boomers only! But don’t worry, there will be plenty of octogenerian poses to come. WHOZA GOOD GIRL?”

  26. Jess says:

    OMG this photo makes me laugh so hard!!!

  27. Amice says:

    With age comes wisdom–wisdom not to fall for peer pressure that has everyone else in a goofy, regrettable pose.

  28. Christine says:

    ITS MARNEY!!!!

    Amy Misto and Co. have seriously had enough…

  29. Amy says:

    What makes me most curious about this picture is not grandma being left out, but why the two men on the end are holding their legs? All of the women in the picture, with the exception of Grandma, are holding their hands. They must have not carefully read the memo about picture day.

  30. Roxanne says:

    No one puts Nana in a corner.

  31. Jay says:

    That’s not Grandma. That’s one of those renegade seniors who hang out at the park and refuse to move for photos. You can’t see her brass knuckles, but she’s got ‘em.

  32. Anne says:

    …perhaps grandma didn’t bring her casserole in a regulation size dish…

  33. Lisa Plante says:

    I looks like she wasn’t suppose to be in this photo. I bet she was just hanging around for the group photo of the entire family.

    • Penny says:

      Exactly! I think that they said they wanted a sibling picture and G’ma just couldn’t quite get the hint to leave!

  34. springjack says:

    “Now you can just stay there in time out until you smile and do the kneeshelf like the rest of us, young lady!”

  35. Eileen says:

    Don’t know why Mary keeps putting starch in my underwear.

  36. JoMama says:

    Poor granny!

  37. Liz says:

    That’s my old summer camp! I love this picture! so awkward knowing some of those people!

  38. Allie says:

    I think this is my favorite so far.

  39. kp says:

    Grandma made the error of mixing the wrong colors, and thus gets outcasted.

  40. Adrienne says:

    Poor Grandma! Barbie is right though, she couldn’t perform the required knee shelf. Sad!

  41. Cincoflex says:

    Looks like grandma is about to shove the bench out from under all those self-important whippersnappers!

  42. caoimhe says:

    This is my favourite and most sad photo ever!

  43. Lee says:

    POOR NANA, she just couldn’t get her legs to do that.

  44. Starr says:

    OMG this makes me laugh so hard. She looks like she isnt even part of them. She just got tired and sat down.

  45. miguel says:

    thought bubble above grandma: revise will after trip.

  46. ColorfulKate says:

    Oh, Grandma could do the knee shelf if she wanted to. Heck, back in the day, she INVENTED the knee shelf. She is keeping her distance out of embarrassment and I’m with her.

  47. Wahoo95 says:

    “Who are these kids…and why are they calling me Grandma????”

  48. Danielle says:

    Poor Grandma. The lady in green has a mischievous look on her face, as if to say “Gotcha Grandma!”

  49. Mary says:

    Here’s what I think. I don’t think Grandma was actually there at all. I think she’s a ghost!

  50. Suze says:

    What did Grandma do to get her put in the corner??
