    Oh man, it looks like he’s going to pull the poor kid’s face off! The boy is thoroughly disgusted, and the dad looks like he’s clenching his teeth. Great job!

    smil;e damnit, or i’ll make you smile!

    i think i know the pinchee…

  4. Will says:

    The child is made of dough. And he is just pinching it to see if he’s baking as he should in the summer heat.

  5. colleen says:

    dad has a seriously malicious look on his face

    @Elizabeth, I was going to guess this was taken in Turkey, too, not only because of the landscape, but because the pincher move is one you often see Turkish guys doing with their girlfriends when they’re out strolling in public, at least in Istanbul (not sure what that means about the relationship in this photo). It’s the most ridiculous thing – the guys’ fingers move all around one side of the woman’s face (more stroking than pinching). Not sure how the women put up with it.

    What the heck?

  8. Kim says:

    My father is a “pincher”, darn it hurts!!! He always gets me in the back of my arm and I AM 55 years old. STOP!

  9. David says:

    “One day you’ll grow one just like me, boy!”

  10. binkymae says:

    In most families you only have to watch out for the old ladies who you see only once a year that grab your face and say how cute you are! By the look on this poor kid’s face, he obviously gets this on a regular basis from Dad.

  11. Carrie says:

    this makes my cheeks hurt!!

  12. everyone says:

    It’s a heckovalot better than having your cheek pinched from the inside!

  13. SusieQ says:

    This is just weird.

  14. Snowrider says:

    Anybody recognize the city in the background?

  15. Tim says:

    “No, I swear, he’s REAL…LOOK!”

  16. BT says:

    its like a little reverse evolution chart:
    Annoyed Kid > Pinching Dad > Diaper Pail

  17. Jorgen says:

    Just love the composition of the photo: father, son and trashcan!

    ….Cornered and desperate….Boris decides to risk it all.
    Crazy as it sounds, ripping of the rubber-faces might just unmask the Zortaks aliens and momentarily distract them while he makes his escape.

  19. Melisa says:

    I swear I see my father in this picture.

    And yes, I do have my own pics to back this statement up.

  20. Insanewiches says:

    This is clearly a modified version of Spock’s Vulcan nerve pinch. But the outcome is the same: the boy is paralyzed.

  21. Eric Bizzle says:

    my dad did that to me once………….just once.

  22. Dora says:

    The boy looks completely resigned to the fact that he will no doubt be humiliated by dear old dad. My favorite part is the garbage can in the background.

  23. Reina says:

    wow, it’s like the kid doesn’t even care, probably because dad does it so often…

  24. CarrieM says:

    A quick, energetic back-hand from the boy would be understandable at this moment. “You know what’s really funny, Dad? That picture of you falling off the balcony.”

  25. Heather says:

    The rarely seen modified fish hook manuever. Priceless, Pops!

  26. MST says:

    Dad’s a retired dentist and has trouble breaking his old habits. Moments after this photo was taken, he made Jr rinse and spit into the trash can.

  28. Tripe-hater says:

    I like his subtle use of the low wall combined with the his right leg to produce a reverse shelf, a rarely attempted manouver and an even rarer instance of capturing a perfect one on film.

    This photographer got lucky and they’re oblivious to it!

  29. KatieMB says:

    I said, “SMILE FOR THE CAMERA!!!!”

  30. Natalie says:

    Looks like maybe Dad lost his footing and Jr.’s face was the closest thing to grab.

  31. Scott says:

    That pinch is the only thing keeping him from falling over the railing. It’s the pinch of life!

  32. Anne says:

    Smile boy, smile …

  33. Bobo says:

    A game of “Got Your Nose” gone horribly wrong…….

  34. laurie says:

    It’s like he was going for the hand on shoulder approach, but then just couldn’t resist. After all, the boy’s just so schmootsy wootsy cutsie~ Daaaw.

  35. Compound bow says:

    “Dad’s always helping me pop my zits…. how embarrassing!!!” This is almost as bad as mom spitting on the wash cloth and cleaning your face.

  36. OHai says:

    I love the settle leg placement on the dad.

  37. Cherriej says:

    OUCH!!!!! Geez Dad, I’ll take the *&^% picture — I’m not going to run away!!

  38. Jim says:

    Wow, “the pincher”, that IS awkward.
