    Grandma’s way of telling the rest of the family they were out of the will.

  2. Carly says:

    Pffft, this is hilarious. I can’t stop laughing… Poor Grandma’s just like.. ‘Oh, this is just not fair.’ LOL! I officially love this pic. xD <3

    I just discovered this website and picture. I have really enjoyed the comments about the picture of my siblings, me, and our mother. There is a good explanation for every part of this picture if anyone is interested. 😉 For those who asked, it was taken at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly near Asheville, North Carolina.

    I believe it’s “kneeSHELVES”.

    “Sorry Gramma, your tribe has spoken.”

  6. donna says:

    Where is this? Does the person who submitted know? This sounds strange but… It looks really familiar 😛

  7. Roscoe says:

    Somebody made a mess in their diaper

  8. Tracy says:

    Grandma tried to slide in behind them but ended up getting a splinter in her behind forcing her to sit this one out.

  9. Jorie says:

    Shouldn’t it be kneeshelves?

  10. Anne says:

    Grandma: “Hurry up and take the picture. I’m missing “The Hollywood Squares!”

  11. MONSTRO says:

    She’s not dead yet, but they keep treating her that way.

  12. shelby says:

    This should be another “Rebel” post.

    A non-conformist!
    A white haired wizardly lone wolf!
    A saint!
    A ninja, firmly putting both feet down!

    God bless her.

    citta scout reservation?

  15. DaDewd says:

    Epic Leg-crossing convention

  16. holl says:

    Maybe nobody was really there….that they could see. 🙂

  17. yomama says:

    That is tooooooooooo funny. The knee shelf is da bomb.

  18. Jennifer says:

    This gathering has “Church Retreat” written all over it.

  19. Gabriel says:

    Most likely not related to the family and was going to get cropped out of the family portrait. Even with the lady cropped out, there is still something very odd about the pose for the family.

  20. Luke Dizzle says:

    I seriously doubt that she is even related to them and when they ask her to move she responded I can’t! now piss off!

  21. Zoniax says:

    Where was this picture taken? Because it looks exactly like a Boy Scout camp I used to go to summer camp at, Camp Schoelkopf. Outside Buffalo, NY.

  22. Ben says:

    “What’s that gramma, can’t cross your legs anymore? Well you’re out of the picture!!”

  23. Miranda says:

    Granny’s legs are too short for a kneeshelf

  24. c3 says:

    oh man, you just can’t make these things up. Well, you can try but it wouldn’t turn out as good as the real thing


  25. Peggy says:

    Gradma never was big on “foolishness” but,now she’s 87 and can’t hear anymore.It was easier to crop the picture than stand in a state park yelling at the poor old lady.Everybody loves her dearly though.

  26. MrsT says:

    Aw poor Gramma…

    But I don’t blame her for not wanting to be in that picture, lol

  27. Linda Sue says:

    Grandma is sitting like that because -it shows she IS the grandma! And THEY are the g’children. If she had GGreatchilden, I bet they’d be on the benches 2 down from the rest.
    That’s what I think.

  28. Josh says:

    laugh and the world laughs with you>
    other bodily noises and you stand alone

  29. missturtle says:

    If she’s anything like MY granny, she didn’t want to participate because she didn’t comb her hair, wear her bra, has on old pants etc.

  30. Bigcat says:

    My grandmother was an outlaw too !

  31. Holly says:

    Grandma was told that after this photo was taken, that they had to get one of her on the bench with the clown.

  32. Beth says:

    Ok, everyone that works at Blue Ridge Assembly wants to know…what family is this?!?!

  33. Caryn says:

    Looks to me like she wasn’t in the family. Kind of like when a news crew goes into an area where there are a bunch of kids and they are in the back ground making funny faces….She just wanted to get in the picture.

    Or she was sitting there already and the kneeshelf crew came along and disturbed her peaceful moment by kneeshelfing in front of her.

  34. NY Doll! says:

    Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes, you don’t! Even if your related to them.

  35. Smidgi says:

    She looks like she is about to say “Where’s the Beef” (some of you younguns might not remember that commercial)

  36. David Mosque says:

    What you don’t realise is that in fact Grandma is refusing to allow them to sit with her, rather than the other way around.

    • jay says:

      nope, they would not allow her to sit close because her hip surgery made it too hard to get her leg onto her other knee!! she is off pouting!!

  37. Cheryl says:

    Oh good Lord, It’s Marney. She clearly didn’t approve of how the rest of the family wanted to do the family picture. She sent them a memo of photo pose instructions months in advance (CLEARLY spelling out that everyone would sit with butts on the fourth row and BOTH feet on the third row with NO serving spoons). Looks like the Misto family ruined yet another family gathering.
