Sit on it, dad.

LOL!! That’s from a Girl Scout Dance for Fathers & Daughetrs. We had one of those, but my daughter and I wisely chose to skip that one. REALLY glad we did now!! BTW, not sure what the giant die has to do with the 50s?
I’ll take the supersize cone please!
The Jukebox is equally as awkward as the picture. It has no back…like one of those fake cop cars on the side of the road. And what about that huge die! So much awkwardness.
The poor girl looks so fed up, even the giant ice cream cone does’nt do any good
He’s not shrugging. He’s trying not to knock the Wurlitzer cutout over!
Fake Shiny Record – Check
Fake cardboard Jukebox – Check
Fake giant ice cream – Check
Fake giant Homemade Cardboard Dice – Check
Fake enthusiasm – We’ll work on that
Ohhhh yeah…. and throw in this real hula hoop… that will “class it up.”
The only way she’d sit there for the picture is if she got a HUGE ice cream cone.
That jukebox looks like a cardboard cutout. Come to think of it, her ice cream cone looks fake too 😉
Someone needs to tune the Jukebox. It’s a little flat.
lol! Best one yet!
The only thing that would make it better would be if Dad were giving a Fonz-like thumbs up!
I guess she didn’t feel like being a “Teen Angel”!
Shouldn’t that jukebox have a 3rd dimension to it? I’m not buying this whole diner facade.
Not even that ginormous ice cream cone can erase the mortification.
I’d like to think that they caught the Hula-Hoop in motion. “Just rollin’ through…”
Girl: Before we took this picture, we rolled that GIGANTIC die in the corner, and I lost. I voted for a Jonas Brothers background. That’s the last time I roll the dice. :/
The ’50’s look is totally awesome! The poodle skirt, the hoola-hoop, the (uh, flat?) jukebox! white socks and jeans, and a (uh, Michael Jackson?) leather coat! (giant!) Ice cream cone, and who could forget the HUGE die! It doesn’t get any more vintage ’50’s than that!!!
What poodle skirt?
She’s not wearing a poodle skirt. She’s wearing jeans.
The look on the girl’s face is very clear: “If I had a compound bow right now, we would not be sitting here. I’m just sayin’…”
This looks like a father-daughter dance…aaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
The jukebox would have looked real if it hadn’t been shot at an angle like that… the photographer seems to have gone out of his way to ensure that we can see that it’s just a cutout.
You said we were getting real ice cream! I hate you dad
I just realized, that that isn’t even a real jukebox…
I love that you can see the jukebox is a cardboard cutout. nothing more awkward than having to worry about knocking over the props while getting your glamour shots taken.
Photographer says: “okay, and hold your giant cones up and…wait! Where’d your cone go?” Dad says sheepishly: “um…I…ate…mine…?”
Photographer: ” You know that was prop.”
She has no idea what the thing is Dad is pretending to lean on, or what the round things on the wall are. And she is completely pissed that the ice cream is just a prop. But the rabbit-ear hair bow is stylin’, grrl!
Oh the cardboard jukebox, and the white socks. A true classic.
Anybody notice that the jukebox is a cutout?
Is she really going to eat that thing? It’s bigger than her head. Oh, I get it. That’s what the hula hoops for – to work off the ice cream afterwards. Obvious really.
Sometimes an ice cream cone is just an ice cream cone.
Is that a fake jukebox? To go with the fake ice cream – and the fake willingness to participate in the exercise
Dad’s getting hundreds of copies made so that every time she burns one, poof! another one appears in the frame. Poor baby
Does the dad have a black eye?!?!
Does the dad have a black eye, or am I seeing things?!?
is that a cardboard cutout jukebox?
Dang sad pic. But I can’t help wishing that real ice cream cones came in that size!
Has anyone noticed the dad has a black eye? Just look at his right eye!!
What happened to the back part of the jukebox? I can only see the front. Is that one fake too?
She could have that look because of that HUGE soft serve ice cream. LOL
Does that dad have a black eye? And, yes.. the poor girl looks like she can not wait to get out of there. lol
Her shoes really add to this time period! Also the paper jukebox really is a great tough!!
i think the most awkward thing about this picture is the dad’s face…
The carefully placed hula hoop just adds that extra touch of awkward authenticity. See, they loved hula hoops in the rockin’ 50’s.
What I love is the ginormous faux ice cream the child is holding. I suspect Mom/Wife is behind this as neither of the two pictured look all that thrilled….
And Joanie doesn’t love Chachi’s……….. Dad
Did anyone else notice that the jukebox is a cutout? LOL!
aww this makes me feel bad..
dad was just trying to do something fun (at the hand of his wife maybe? haha)
and the daughter is just at that age where everything daddy does is embarrassing.
That poor kid looks like she can’t wait to get out of the studio and away from her oddly dressed dad.
Guess what girlie? That photo is going to be around for a while.
Trying to act cute with that semi-shrug…only compound bows will take him down!!
Dad with hunched shoulders, “Meh? I had to endure her ballet concerts, she owes me one.”
One two three o’clock awkward rock
Four o’clock five o’clock awkward rock
Six seven eight o’clock awkward rock
We’re gonna rock around the awkward clock!
