Somebody’s the plaid sheep.
(submitted by Shari)
All of a sudden I had to remember some words that Marlowe had told me over fifteen years ago: Dead men don’t wear plaid. Hmm. Dead men don’t wear plaid.
I still don’t know what it means.
Check them out.
…what a bunch of squares!
They’re all lumberjacks and they’re OK.
lol…spit out my coffee on that reply, . . .
If she really wanted to anarchize the picture, she would’ve worn a denim shirt with the plaid PJ bottoms. So truly, this is not rebellion; at best, it can be classified as passive resistance.
They must be going ludicrous speed ’cause “they’ve gone to plaid!”
All of this family’s outfits together could have definitely powered the Winebago!
Actually the memo just said to “wear plaid”
It didn’t say where
are those Skidz?
I thinbk so. 1991. aaah
What cracks me up is that she’s got her shirt TUCKED IN to the things!!!
I hear bagpipes………being played by Curt Kobain.
that made me giggle.
Somehow life seemed pretty normal for the Cobain family after their son’s passing…
How would Marney have handled this??
“Susan: I TOLD you to wear a plaid shirt. NOT plaid pants. Now that you are grown up, we’re going to expect you to show up in regulation clothing! Or else!”
HAHAHA!!! Yes!! Marney is a favorite of mine and she would DEFINITELY not approve of this!!
I love the relatively dressy shirt and shoes with the pajama bottoms.
She actually tucked her shirt into the oversized plaid pants!
It may be time to admit that I owned an identical pair of pants in my younger days and they were NOT pajama bottoms….unfortunately they were just as unflattering……
they were skidz, weren’t they?
stirrup pants, right?
The penny loafers ROCK!
LOVE the Bay City Rollers! I inherited the RECORD Album from my sister when I got my first record player oh, 28 years ago…
Good one. Now I’ll have that song in my head for the rest of the day, and as the soundtrack
to my nightmares about this family. This is a great awkward photo.
WIN! Although it does show our age…..
I know…thought I might be the only one to get that joke!
Yup, you win…best comment!!
i smell a sitcom…. that will grow stale immediately after the pilot episode
What clan do these people belong to?
must be from Seattle……………………
It looks like she and her sister split up a pair of pajamas. I wonder how she got stuck with the bottoms.
I’ll bet there were tears!
Wow: seriously folks, not the same pattern.
Wow: Seriously, Jak, same pattern.
Look again: pattern on the shirt way larger. Should have paid attention in kindergarten.
…does it really matter?
It’s actually common in print-sets to have one piece have a smaller pattern than the other.
I don’t know why –perhaps they think it’s more flattering?
I suddenly have this strange yearning for haggis.
The mid-90s called… They want their Eddie Bauer plaid shirts back.
Someone got a special on a plaid pajama set!
this is seriously gorgeous.
A most excellent title! 🙂
Makes me not want to go on a picnic for awhile
There’s one in every family . . . . . .
It’s The Family Grunge!
It”s the Plaid Family.
Someone forgot to change out of her pajama pants…
I think she’s just wearing the pajama bottoms and her sister next to her is wearing the top. So not so much as the plaid sheep but not enough plaid shirts to go around and she drew the short stick.
No, patterns different size.
Did she lose 50 pounds recently or is she hoping to grow into those clothes!!! I’ve got a feeling that’s moms outfit and it’s as close as they could get! That much plaid really does scream out for a compound bow or two!!!
Zing! Compound bow comment, you win!
I think they were photoshopped.
Someone’s got fashion dyslexia.
…if you want to be generous and call it fashion, that is.
Omg, this is by far the most awkward thing I’ve seen in a long time! Priceless!
“I don’t have a plaid shirt, I think it doesn’t go with my complection…can I wear my plaid pajama pants instead?”
Looks like the daughters didn’t get the plaid memo in time….so they had to share a pair of pajamas.
Nope, pattern different sized, but at least your not the only one to make the mistake.
1994 was certainly the year of the not-so scantily plaid
I’m so stealing ‘scantily plaid’!
evan i am in love with you. (scantily plaid FTW!!!)
Looks like one has the top and the other the bottom.
I LOVE THIS PICTURE. omg. winner.
I’m diggin’ it too. It made me chuckle 🙂
The rainbow plaid is pretty fabulous.
Yep – the son’s shirt is definitely the best thing in this picture! Off to eBay to find me one of those…
That’s right girl! It doesn’t matter if you wear pajamas in the shot, you stick it to ’em!
From the “irregular” section of the L.L. Bean catalog…..
so this what grunge music has brought us to?
They sisters are sharing a pair of PJs!
Nope: different fabric– pattern is bigger on the shirt.
They really do have that much plaid…
Ever the innovator, Suzi always dared to be different…
LOL It’s like a FarSide comic. Nicely done.
Looks like the two teenage girls didn’t own any flannel, so they split dad’s pajamas.
LOL! That was one of the first things I noticed, SOOO FUNNY!
Pretty sure they aren’t a pair of PJ’s the girls split – the pattern and colors, while VERY similar, aren’t the same. The plaid on the shirt is larger than the plaid on the pants. Plus the shirt doesn’t look like a PJ shirt.
I don’t like it when people take things literally on this website. Good gosh, the whole point is fun.
Look again: pattern is different.
No it’s not?
Clearly different. Sorry.
Funny, but yer nae Scottish–that innae the same tartan. Close, but nae kilt. Haggis anyone?
Aye, and if ye cannae see the bottom, dinnae complain if ye droon…
Wow, I wish I had the guts to be that rebelious!
