These kids with their fancy kneeshelfs.
(submitted by Mike)
mean spirited photo, but VERY funny
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.
looks to me like granny is trying to push the bench over. some one didnt let her ride shot gun
oh sorry didnt see the earlier bench shoving post
“I’m not sitting near you or doing the knee shelf!” The heck with all of you!
Gramma’s just not a joiner.
aww, this actually makes me kind of sad
Whats more annoying? The compound bow references or the constant photoshop accusations?
Or the Mastercard ad imitations?
Just as annoying
Granny acts normal and gets captioned.Ain’t no justice in this world.
I know 6 people that won’t be getting fruitcake next Christmas!
this is sad!!!
Best photo/caption combo EVERRRRRR!
Haha! What a perfect caption!
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.
…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…
Hahahah! OMG! that comment just made my life complete!
I don’t think she is part of their group. Note the eyes on the knee-shelvers aren’t looking at the camera…
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!
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!
she’s going to cut them out of her will for doing that.
That is Funny!
ok, now that we’ve got dirty dancing and Marnies thanksgiving comments all thats missing is “Nana’s looking for her compound bow”
I love this photo! And the family resemblance between those women is so strong!
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.
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.
The awkwardness actually started in the parking lot when they all climbed out of the Volkswagon Beetle.
“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?”
OMG this photo makes me laugh so hard!!!
With age comes wisdom–wisdom not to fall for peer pressure that has everyone else in a goofy, regrettable pose.
Amy Misto and Co. have seriously had enough…
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.
No one puts Nana in a corner.
That, Roxanne, was brilliant.
After the photo Nana jumped off those logs and did the Marangay!
That SERIOUSLY should have been the caption! Bravo!
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.
HA-HA-HA, your comment just saved my day
…perhaps grandma didn’t bring her casserole in a regulation size dish…
or she forgot her to bring a spoon for said casserole
LOL!!! Or maybe she didn’t bring enough potatoes…
I can’t breathe now that made me laugh so hard!
With a lid!
Yes! I really think that’s Marnie, and the rest of the family is outcasting her!
LOL OMGosh maybe this IS Maddie!!
Anne, will you marry me. Best comment ever. You didn’t photoshop your comment did you?
Ok this comment takes the cake! I can’t wipe this goofy grin off my face!
Can’t believe there are some people who don’t want stories posted on this site. If we hadn’t had Marney’s Thanksgiving Manifesto to read, we never would have had this shared laughter.
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.
Exactly! I think that they said they wanted a sibling picture and G’ma just couldn’t quite get the hint to leave!
“Now you can just stay there in time out until you smile and do the kneeshelf like the rest of us, young lady!”
HAHAHAHA- best comment ever! This should be on the main page!
this is hysterical….I can just hear the tone.
Don’t know why Mary keeps putting starch in my underwear.
bestest comment. i think i just lost a lung!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s my old summer camp! I love this picture! so awkward knowing some of those people!
You know these people? Then can you tell us why they didn’t even let gran sit with them? IS she their gran?
Don’t know them. Know the camp though.
I think it’s my old summer camp too!! Peterkin! Is that what you’re referring to Liz?
Yes, that’s the one! I grew up near Pittsburgh and my church youth group would go there on retreats.
I think this is my favorite so far.
absolutely! I laughed and laughed!
tie between this and roman shade… thgis website will be the end of me. i woke up this morning laughing like an old man (i’m a 26 year young sexy gal)
I agree–this is the best website ever, and the readers ROCK.
Grandma made the error of mixing the wrong colors, and thus gets outcasted.
Poor Grandma! Barbie is right though, she couldn’t perform the required knee shelf. Sad!
Looks like grandma is about to shove the bench out from under all those self-important whippersnappers!
This is my favourite and most sad photo ever!
POOR NANA, she just couldn’t get her legs to do that.
OMG this makes me laugh so hard. She looks like she isnt even part of them. She just got tired and sat down.
thought bubble above grandma: revise will after trip.
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.
“Who are these kids…and why are they calling me Grandma????”
Poor Grandma. The lady in green has a mischievous look on her face, as if to say “Gotcha Grandma!”
Here’s what I think. I don’t think Grandma was actually there at all. I think she’s a ghost!
or she was photoshoped
What did Grandma do to get her put in the corner??
She refused to participated in the kneeshelf train.
Nobody puts Grandma in a corner…
hahaha… my thougts exactly
Arthritis was flaring up, making knee shelf participation impossible for grandma.
love it! almost said it! best!!!
maybe she carried a watermelon to Marnie’s?
