    Everywhere have I sought
    And nowhere have I found
    So I lift the pointed instrument
    And t(h)rust the music deepest in

    Poor, tortured soul. Also, I win the internet.

  2. Rachael says:

    I swear, this kid looks EXACTLY like my friend from band class. AND he plays the clarinet!

  3. I do not want to hear his stories about band camp.

  4. MrDoodles says:

    He’s just probably glad he wasn’t the piano player in their marching band.

    First comment of the year.

    I need a life.

  5. MrMe says:

    The story of a boy, who slowly became a hamster.

  11. Brent says:

    The holographic projection continuously looping on the boring side of his head is saying: “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”

  13. pat says:

    You guys realize this has become a crazy internet meme…this kid is famous! Is this the first time this was posted?

    • Nick says:

      I know. That’s how I found out about it. Most people though…aren’t very intelligent when it comes to the Internet.

  14. chelle says:

  15. Makes me think of Zeus and the daughter he had growing inside of his skull . . .

  16. aefsegfrgs says:

    They told me I could be anything I wanted
    So I became a god

  17. Farnoth says:

    I didn’t know it was a guild thing…

  18. John says:

    He’s so conceded… :-P

  19. Matt says:

    He looks like the kid who was in the police station in The Hangover.

  20. Isabella says:

    I enjoyed this one

  21. Mike says:

    Being forced into this picture is probably the real reason Walter Kovacs snapped.

  22. John says:

    this picture is posted on my RA’s door

  23. Shaun says:

    I wish I could come up with such well thought out posts

  24. someone says:

    …..one time at band camp………….

  25. Anne says:

    It looks like the photo editor cut a flap in his earlobe to flip over the front of his pants leg. Too funny.

  26. MONSTRO says:

    Be the band….be the band….

  27. Johanna says:

    This one is brilliant!

  28. Marie says:

    I *hate* these kinds of pictures! The least the photographer could do is put something really appropriate in the “boring part of your head” (LOL, GasMoney) like a cheeseburger or a girl in a bikini or romping puppies or monkeys flinging their own feces at one another.

  29. Selena says:

    I’m laughing so hard I’m crying and am about to wet my pants!

  30. Tea says:

    How adorable! And the scary thing is I know this guy!

  31. Ron says:

    I guess my career as a jazz clarinetist is over…

  32. Bree says:

    Clarinet seemed like a really fun idea in his head…. but in reality …. uh, not so much. Lol!

  33. lorie l says:

    Poor kid, in band too, but these are the kids who grow up to be the Bill Gates’ of the world.

  34. alyssa says:

    I love the title

  35. Ben says:

    Ummm, I could not believe that I actually know someone whose picture is on here. I saw this last night and asked the guy whose picture this is….he said he had no idea lol. This is hilarious.

  36. arch says:

    This one time, at bad camp……

  37. magillicuddy says:

    my lunch just shot up through my nose…

  38. Melissa says:

    ooh ooh that’s me! i wish i had a picture like that, because i’m the kid with the clarinet thinking of myself playing the clarinet :)

  39. Marisa says:

    The kid with the clarinet is thinking “I picked the clarinet for the girls… then they put me in this getup! Something has gone terribly wrong…”

  40. emm says:

    “um, yeah, in my MIND i’m happy… i really am.”

  41. Mypa says:

    Haha, this pic reminds me of Gary Larson’s The far side!

  42. MMB says:

    I think therefore I am.

  43. cheryl says:

    This made me laugh out loud! This is so funny. I have one of these myself except the big head picture is me and my little sister is the little picture.

  44. Danielle says:

    Listen to your conscience, son.

    so awkward.

  45. GasMoney says:

    I like these old style shots because they use the boring part of your head to show you standing proud in a full body shot.
