You’ve just been asked to prom… by another couple.
(submitted by Chrissy)
Anyone notice the guy’s and the girl on the left’s hands are the same? Oh, shopped in girlfriend is smokin hot
Shoot… “Our left” it would be his right. His right hand the the girl on the right’s right hand seem to be the same hand…
Sorry, it’s not photoshopped. I know this guy and he’s actually got three arms. How’s else can you handle two to dates to the same prom? He also plays a pretty mean slide guitar.
I think he brought along an extra, just in case.
Or, he has a wingman waiting for him after the prom for her..
“legend, the legend! the third wheel legend! always in the way!”
Is the girl on the left wearing a cape, pajamas, and flipflops? Cause that’s what I wore to prom…
i think that the girl on the left is photoshopped in…its just the girl on the right years later they look the same!!!
The girl in the harry potter cape and the boy are brother and sister… when the brother first got a myspace he cropped in the girl so he wouldn’t be made fun of… except most of the people on this page aren’t thinking about the 2 girls they are thinking about his lack of photoshop skill.
And this was our chaparone… Harriet Potter.
The couple summoned a Wizard.
Actually, the “3rd Wheel’s” outfit looks exactly like what the girls were forced to wear at my Christian high school on chapel days once a week.
The tall girl is the guys sister, thats my guess.
I’m thinking that the girl on the left is boy’s sister, sent along to chaperone the couple. This was a common practice with the very Christian families in my hometown. Their children would only be able to attend functions like this so long as another sibling went to make sure that nothing improper happened to them. A good friend of mine accompanied one of her younger sisters, and the sister’s date, to several formal dances.
That’s all well and good — but why did she have to be in the picture???
I think what we have here is a classic case of,”You can go to the prom unless your older sister goes to,and I want a photo for proof!”
THE STORY OF MY LIFE!
The one in the cape must be his twin sister. Note the facial resemblance. Poor kid.
So nice that Zach Morris, Jessie Spano and Kelly Kapowski could have a nice prom together.
nice 90′s reference!
Correction: I meant “Meet The Sterns” on 7/16/09
For the “big picture”, refer to the following postings:
“Awkward Solo Photo: Roman Shade” on 7/12/09
“The Sterns” on 7/16/09
This exact situation happened to me… I got asked to prom by my best friend, whose girlfriend later decided that it would be a good idea to go “with” us. Awkward photos of couple + single ensued.
Worst. Prom. EVER. (Of course, this wasn’t all that made it bad…)
I truly believe this is a real picture – if it were fake or PS’d, would there be that much free space to the right of the guy with all of that matching back and foreground. Besides, the picture has all 3 of them centered perfectly. The girl is just there with the other 2, let it go
This looks like a picture of a sister, brother, and the brother’s date who’s not so comfortable with the fact they’re getting their prom picture taken with the brother’s sister. That is awkward.
Did the extra go as Harry Potter?
Heck I don’t know…3 is company…not a crowd
So…if she was going to the prom, even with a couple….why is she dressed in her jammies? and a cloak?
Nobody has mentioned the wizard robe! She looks like a Hogwarts student!
The relationships aren’t that awkward, here. Most of the conventions that lead people to *think* they are, *those* are the real source of queasy awkward stomachs.
Our A-number-one, top-prize awkward trait here is in fact the young man’s hair. Yes, what happens when one’s tousled hairstyle needs to be made somehow more formal? Why, one gels the heck out of the thing! ‘Chad’ appears to be wearing the Statue of Liberty’s crown.
Can the “deep thinkers” on this site who claim everything is Photoshopped come up with SOMETHING more intelligent??
Like ….. Duh!! ….. Who cares!
the photographer’s assistant decided to jump in after much cajoling by the others who already had their photo taken. “Oh, what the heck, there aren’t enough props in there anyway…”
They added her instead of a folding chair.
Not photoshopped. Homeboys arms are pretty long, and the dates waist is skinny. Obviously the 3rd wheel and the “groom” are related, same nose and smile. Nothing here is compelling enough to photoshop, not to mention this would win an award for matching blacks, blurs, skin tones, and lighting. I agree that people should just take it at face value and laugh at it, it gets annoying to debunk theses things.
It looks like lefty’s in her PJs…
This *almost* happened to me once, my date didn’t want to be in a photo with another couple and I had agreed already, so I was standing in line with them and decided, “you know…….. I’m out.”
What is the obsession with determining if a pic is Photoshopped? Who cares?
Possible photo-shop aside, the girl on the left and the guy look very similar..perhaps they are brother and sister and the parents wanted a pic of them all for some ungodly reason..it could happen…
I was thinking that as well, there is a certain resemblence
I think the little date looks like Hermoine Granger.
You can go to Prom in groups now-a date is no longer mandatory. I think that is how it should be. Maybe she went alone and they are all friends?
This is totally me.
On numerous occasions.
It’s pathetic being being fifteen.
It looks like the girls are sisters. Ew.
Marnie’s prom picture- she’s the one on the left… forgot her date, but remembered both a serving spoon and a lid!
Ahaha, oh. I lol’d.
Is it my computer or does the dudes other hand look exactly like the 3rd wheels?
Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Definetly siblings. Same hands.
Same smile, too. I see the taller ones as sibling and the younger one is brother’s date.
Family/prom photo all in one! Great gift for mom!
nothing wrong with a chaperone at your prom haha
Maybe the girl in blue and the young man are Siamese twins……
Glen and Glenda,(the worlds first functioning siamese twins) went to prom with Tina. A fun time was had by all.
Yeah – sorry, photoshopped….
Sweet, so Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie attended high school together.
HA! Absolutely perfect.
Does anyone see the guys hand on her back? it definitely looks like the “date’s” been photoshopped in! it looks like 2 hands on her back!!!!
Agreed. Definitely looks like a photoshop.
and they just happened to have on matching corsage/boutonniere’s….i highly doubt there was any photoshopping….its just an awkward photo, duh.
It’s absolutely not photoshopped.
If it’s not then he has 6 fingers!!!
I think one of them is her hand. Awkward behind the back hand holding.
That hand on the back really does look very awkward.
That’s not two hands on her back, people. The back of her dress is cut out and stringed together like a corset. So it’s the date’s hand and her back.
agreed- it is an open-back dress with thin, ribbon-like straps. If there’s any photoshopping, it would be the addition of the wizard on the guy’s right side.
Thank you Nikki. My dress was cut in the back. Thank you for noticing. And he does not have six fingers. The picture was not photoshopped. Hmm, I wonder how this picture got on the internet if I didn’t put it on here… Scary!!!
Awe Katie and Chrissy look so cute….. I really have no idea how I found this and it is kind of scary. Lol.
pretty sure the “second hand” is just the strappy back of her dress.
actually, now that i look again, im not sure haha
I count a thumb and four fingers. Are you a Simpson character?
Her hand (the darker one on top that matches her skin tone) is behind her back. The other hand (the lighter, lower one) is his.
This picture–like most shots that ignite the ire of the conspiracy theorists among us–has a rational explanation.
BINGO. >Maybe she’s just making sure HIS hand doesn’t travle any further south while she’s stealing him from his blonde date!
oops… 3am typo correction: travel, not travle..lest anyone think I can’t spell!
it’s one hand on her back. and it has 5 fingers, just like one hand does. count them.
The pic was photo shopped to show the before and after.
Two years after the break-up, Stacy was determined to prove to Todd she’d never leave him.
That comment made me snarf…thanks for being clever!
I am Stacy, I’m glad someone understands.
