These kids with their fancy kneeshelfs.

Grandma’s way of telling the rest of the family they were out of the will.
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.
Oh please do tell the explanation!! Love the pic!
We were taking several groupings of family pictures at a 4 generation family reunion. The “official” photographer was taking the siblings picture from a different angle, when another relative shot this one.
Oh that is good. I was afraid she didn’t like the family. lol
I believe it’s “kneeSHELVES”.
“Sorry Gramma, your tribe has spoken.”
Where is this? Does the person who submitted know? This sounds strange but… It looks really familiar 😛
I was just thinking the same, I would swear I went there for boyscouts lol. Somewhere in NJ for me
Somebody made a mess in their diaper
Grandma tried to slide in behind them but ended up getting a splinter in her behind forcing her to sit this one out.
Shouldn’t it be kneeshelves?
Grandma: “Hurry up and take the picture. I’m missing “The Hollywood Squares!”
She’s not dead yet, but they keep treating her that way.
this is the funniest thing i’ve seen in such a long time!! HAHHAHAHAH
This should be another “Rebel” post.
A white haired wizardly lone wolf!
A ninja, firmly putting both feet down!
God bless her.
I was going to say, “Grandma’s a rebel! You go, Grandma!”
citta scout reservation?
Epic Leg-crossing convention
Maybe nobody was really there….that they could see. 🙂
That is tooooooooooo funny. The knee shelf is da bomb.
This gathering has “Church Retreat” written all over it.
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.
The elderly lady is the mother of the group. I know them. Funny pic!
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!
She is their mother.
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.
“What’s that gramma, can’t cross your legs anymore? Well you’re out of the picture!!”
Granny’s legs are too short for a kneeshelf
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
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.
Aw poor Gramma…
But I don’t blame her for not wanting to be in that picture, lol
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.
laugh and the world laughs with you>
other bodily noises and you stand alone
As they say in church: “Sit in your own pew.”
LOL…I was thinking the same thing.
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.
OMG you made me laugh so hard!
My grandmother was an outlaw too !
Grandma was told that after this photo was taken, that they had to get one of her on the bench with the clown.
Ok, everyone that works at Blue Ridge Assembly wants to know…what family is this?!?!
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.
I’m not so sure. Why is the camera pointing slightly in her direction, as opposed to completely front-on towards the group?
Note to photographer – learn to zoom in.
Note to colleen – lighten up.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes, you don’t! Even if your related to them.
She looks like she is about to say “Where’s the Beef” (some of you younguns might not remember that commercial)
THE #1 commercial for Generation Xers!
#1 commercial of all time!
You’re showing your age. For that matter, so am I
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.
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!!
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.
LMAO!!! *SNORT*… Grandma wasn’t wearing regulation size shoes! and speaking of which, where would I find the printed out law of regulation size mashed potato bowls for the next Marney gathering?
They’re all too old to be Amy – she must be the photographer.
LOL!! LOVE IT. Marney!! hahaha
Oh my god. I think I love you. Haha. I was crying from laughing so hard.
