    ahhahha o that sucks this happened to me vacationing in Mexico I enlisted the help of my little sister to put sunblock on my back and ended up with her hand prints lol

    This is like an advertisement for T-shirts. Look at all the good they can do, all the horrors they can prevent, or just cover up….

    比纹身 更有价值 cool!!!!

  4. Bea says:

    I love you, caption people… “jazz-hands” made my day lol

  5. Kimberly says:

    Oh that Schneider!

    This is good but not as good as a guy on my trip to Mexico City to see US-Mexico World Cup qualifier in 2001. Mr. Super Spirit used some face paint and wrote “USA” on his forehead but didn’t use any sunscreen first (so he ended up like this gent but with USA on his face). The topper was the next day back from trip he had some business meeting (I think he worked for the World Bank or some int’l development organization) so being Mr. Rah Rah US really wasn’t helpful. Awkward!

    Elementary, my dear Watson … the sharp and clear edges of the hand shapes clearly indicates that the old man has made two hands of paper and then stuck these pieces to his body thus making everybody wonder how it could have been done.

  8. Jay says:

    Zip it up Mr. Handyman! LOL

  9. Kurtacus says:

    I simply made a comment implying that he must’ve fallen asleep on top of someone already sunbathing, and it was blocked. Our censor seems to be more sensitive than this poor dude’s epidermis.

  10. Ernest says:

    Hahaha… Now that is funny. Almost about this picture is great! From his smile to his stance!

  11. Mary says:

    I think the most awkward part of this photo is the half-down zipper….

  12. El Kev says:

    Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that the left hand appears to have a 6th finger at the bottom?

  13. IAmNoOne says:

    You should see his wife suntan, there are feet outlines on her back.

  14. David says:

    You know he could just have a regular old sunburn. Then, as he was posing for the camera he suddenly realized he was doing a “south beach” pose and quickly switched positions before the camera snapped it.

  15. Family Man says:

    You know what would have kept that from happening? A duster.

  16. Matt says:

    Great picture! Not awkward at all.

  17. Cheryl says:

    So, is that an alien head on his towel?

  18. Baron says:

    Handy Andy is at it again

  19. DonKeyHoTay says:

    Farmer’s tan – FAIL!!!!

  20. shut up says:

    It’s from sunscreen. Probably a joke.

  21. jennie says:

    after too many mojitos……….our hero fell asleep on the beach only to wonder what became of little billy.

  22. mjdg says:

    LOL! JAZZ HANDS!!!!!

  23. CarrieM says:

    It would be an awkward photo even without the hand prints.

  24. Maya B says:

    I say he “fell asleep” with self-placed gloves on him.

  25. Cindy says:

    Maybe someone hugged him from behind with sunscreen on THEIR hands…therefore he did not get burned there.

    • Tracey says:

      does anyone EVER read the posts prior to posting??? Yeah,… i guess someone hugged him after putting on suntan lotion..I think 5-6 people said the same thing…….if you have nothing to post, then post nothing at all..

  26. Tim says:

    Suddenly, a tiny voice was heard from inside, screaming “Let me outta here!” That’s when everyone’s worst fear was realized: Uncle Terry had eaten little Marky.

  27. Aliz says:

    I think somebody with sunblock on their hands ambushed him–a grandchild maybe?

  28. sarah says:

    he has four hands!!!

  29. KatieMB says:

    His smile is certainly awkward. Or scary….

  30. Sara says:

    See, I instantly thought that someone (maybe a kid?) gave him a hug from behind. If they had sunscreen on their hands, it would transfer and prevent him from burning in those places.

    Maybe I thought this because as a kid, I would purposely ‘miss’ places on my sister’s back with sunscreen. She spent many summers with strange patterns on her back from my twisted sense of humor.

  31. Tina says:

    Oops, didn’t realize that it posted…

  32. Tina says:


    Why does everyone ALWAYS think that pics are photoshooped?!?

    This man obviously realizes that he has handprints on himself…Just look at his face….

  33. Tina says:

    Ewww, lol…

    Why the heck does everyone ALWAYS think that pics are photoshopped? Ugh!

  34. MCR says:

    Feel the burn!

  35. laughing_hard says:

    I would have said taht he had sunscreen on his hands then he hit his stomach. (That happened to somebody I knew before.) But it doesn’t look like he didn’t use sun screen. Poor guy.

  36. pk says:

    So do you think he fell asleep with his hands on his sides?

  37. El.mo says:

    That is such an awkward place for a tan hand!

  38. Eoobro says:

    Boo….obviously photoshopped. Funny enough without the hands.

    • Lindsey says:

      omg…that is not photoshopped.

    • Cherriej says:

      It has to be photoshopped — how else would it happen? If those were his hands, the tops of his hands would be sunburnt. It really doesn’t make any sense.

      • Nyla says:

        His hands aren’t sunburnt because from his elbows down, he already had a good tan going. The rest of his arms and torso were probably pail white – so they sunburnt.

        Also, the hands are probably small and cartoony because when you rest your hand naturally your fingers have bend in them. NO BODY sleeps with their fingers straight out! That takes a lot of muscle control.

        I call real awkward deal here!!

      • MST says:

        I can’t believe no one has mentioned suntan lotion. We used to spread all kinds of designs onto ourselves when we were kids, just for yuks.

      • Susie says:

        Someone probably wrapped their hands around him after putting on sun-block. Similar thing happened to my husband in Hawaii. The only place he didnt burn was where i pinched his nipple after i put on my sun-block. Had I thought about it before hand, i would’ve written terrible things on his chest with my finger as he slept in the sun. mwaaaah….

    • LindsayLu says:

      Ha ha! This isn’t good enough to be photoshopped… can we say ‘paint’

    • Anjeliki says:

      That was not Photoshopped – it looks like Grandma just slathered a kid with sunscreen, then the kid gave Grandpa a hug from behind, leaving sunscreen on Grandpa.

  39. Bleah! says:

    I see two places he wont hurt tommorrow!

  40. shifty says:

    you’ve got to hand it to him

  41. Cloud says:

    “Don’t, don’t you want me? You know I don’t believe it when you say that you don’t need me!”

  42. Kat says:

    Are those kids hand prints?? creepy

  43. Juls says:

    Was he wearing Mickey Mouse gloves or what? Those finger outlines look way too cartoonish to be real – and too small for a grown man. That alone is extremely creepy. Also, the left hand would have had to been flipped to be correct, or his thumb was practically resting on his nipple for the entire sunbathing experience. Awkward.

    • I’m guessing his fingers were bent a bit or something. From what you can see of his hands, his fingers do look a little stumpy…

    • EmmaKate says:

      I thought the same thing too about the shape of the fingers, but realistically, it’s obvious he was lying there for hours, so while the sun changed position in the sky, it cast little shadows on different parts of his stomach from his fingers. So I think that’s what caused the gloved-hand effect.

  44. Rich says:

    Ouch! ….. THAT’S gonna leave a mark!

  45. Fey says:

    Let’s give the boy a haaaaand….or two.

  46. laurie says:

    His torso is doing its best Macaulay Culkin impression.

  47. Molly Poppy says:

    This is too funny. If I was him I would have to show everyone my fabulous tan lines.

  48. LindsayLu says:

    hand tan lines on his chest and a zipper that’s half way down…. hmmmm… someone has been into mischief.

  49. Evan says:

    I’m not so sure he knows about that sunburn
