A classic case of being pinch-drunk.

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…
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.
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?
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!
“One day you’ll grow one just like me, boy!”
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.
this makes my cheeks hurt!!
It’s a heckovalot better than having your cheek pinched from the inside!
This is just weird.
Anybody recognize the city in the background?
it looks like it might be in greece… but hey–what do i know??
Submitted by someone named Nesrine, a Muslim name- I’m guessing this is in Turkey.
“No, I swear, he’s REAL…LOOK!”
its like a little reverse evolution chart:
Annoyed Kid > Pinching Dad > Diaper Pail
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.
I swear I see my father in this picture.
And yes, I do have my own pics to back this statement up.
What are you waiting for?
This is clearly a modified version of Spock’s Vulcan nerve pinch. But the outcome is the same: the boy is paralyzed.
lmao who needs botox when your dad can just pinch your face for you!
my dad did that to me once………….just once.
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.
wow, it’s like the kid doesn’t even care, probably because dad does it so often…
Exactly… this is probably this 2349804th time this has happened to him
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.”
LOL!!!!!! Love that comment…..
The rarely seen modified fish hook manuever. Priceless, Pops!
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.
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!
he just wanted to have a good hold of his son before he attempted the reverse shelf at that height.
Reverse shelf–love it!
I love the careful deconstruction of the poses!
I said, “SMILE FOR THE CAMERA!!!!”
Looks like maybe Dad lost his footing and Jr.’s face was the closest thing to grab.
that made me chuckle!
That pinch is the only thing keeping him from falling over the railing. It’s the pinch of life!
Smile boy, smile …
A game of “Got Your Nose” gone horribly wrong…….
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.
“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.
You know what this kid needs.Pops already halfway over the wall.
I love the settle leg placement on the dad.
yeah, like if he wasn’t gonna pinch his cheek he was gonna kick him in the butt
Sort of like an arm shelf for your leg….
i think the foot is subtly placed so that he can brace himself if the kid loses it and tries to push him over the wall…
OUCH!!!!! Geez Dad, I’ll take the *&^% picture — I’m not going to run away!!
“SMILE”, son. See? Smiiiiiiilllllle….
Wow, “the pincher”, that IS awkward.
What if that is NOT his dad….AWKWARD!
That is what I thought too!
I love how the kid has this look on his face as thought that was far from the first time he has had the endure a photographed cheek pinch. Poor guy!
he,s not he,s just my crazy uncle
If I look like I’m pinching you, people won’t realize it’s really a growth sticking out of your face…
or — I’ll pinch your second nose shut until you smile
