A good son or daughter is always there when mom and dads elbows aren’t anymore.
(submitted by Liz)
I used to hate the elbow hold whenever prom pictures were taken (the guy stood behind his date and held her elbow while she held her own hands). It was always so awkward.
The father looks a lot like Stephen Colbert…
Mom and Dad have been done up by Madame Toussads (sp?). You hold up Dad, and I’ll hold up Mom…….it’s the only way were going to look like a real family for the trust funds!
What is with the son’s GIANT tuxedo? I’m guessing it’s either a loaner/hand-me-down or there’s a shrink ray off-camera.
Oh my. My old HS principal had a thing with grabbing elbows. He would randomly walk up to students in the hallway or wherever they were standing, give a big smile and a “How do? Good to see ya, good to see ya.” while shaking our elbows.
“Your daughter and I want a clean fight. Now shake hands, and then come out of your corners and GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!”
Are they in front of a tour bus?
New kind of arm shelf???
I’m above all this. Really. I am.
(look it up)
Filmed in wide-screen PANAVISION!!!
Dad was suddenly surprised by the girl’s cold left hand.
I have shot weddings before and I shot one worse than this. I would submit it but would hate to claim I took it!
Picture of Groom on one side, and all the married men on both sides facing him in a “conga” line each is putting his hand on the mans elbow in front of him, and the man in front is shaking the grooms hand… If you dont understand it, you are lucky. If you can visualize it, I am sorry. So, so sorry.
Well, thanks Spence, just thanks. Your description was spot on and a mental image is now seared into my brain. May as well post it now. The damage has already been done. Ouch.
well spencer…that sounds a bit less awkward than the “bride battering-ram” wedding pix that are so popular. but yes, as guardmama says…now you HAVE TO post it.
Maybe Mom and Dad are suffering from tennis elbow-both of them!
WHos submitted this?? I think I know who this is in the picture!! Does anyone know if this pic is out from Northwest Indiana?? If so, that would be so wierd!!
i did, and no..we were on a cruise to bermuda!
I went on a date once with a skinny nerd who asked me…Do you mind if I hold your elbow!!!!! No wonder we only had one date! =D
how come the dads eyebrow is raised so high is he suprised his son is holding up his elbow from elbow failure or something? but cool pic
It’s the Macaroni family.
(If you don’t get that reference, you shouldn’t be here!)
Don’t get it, but way to welcome new folk, MST. VanHelsings, crossbows, etc., are funny ongoing jokes, but people who don’t get the jokes don’t have to be shunned!!
…and Marney! Don’t forget, Marney.
Well I guess I shouldn’t be here then because I don’t get the “joke.” I guess that means all others who happened to stumble on this site should leave too because they won’t get it either. That’s a really crappy statement to make there MST.
Oh. And BTW~Looks like your poor attempt at the “Macaroni family” comment was a FAIL. Maybe you’re the one that shouldn’t be here?
What are they standing in front of? Is that their tour bus?
Glad I am not the only one who thought it looked like they were standing in front of a charter bus
my thoughts exactly. that would be weird to be so dressed up and standing in front of a bus though
Also awkward…photos of photos.
Yes – seems to be a covert operation. A quick snap of someone else’s photo while the opportunity arose – Awesome!
Hey, not everyone has the patience to wait for the scanner to do all its whirring and clicking. You know?
Also awkward, redundant comments.
I think mom and dad are suffering from severe tendonitis and bro and sis are showing how supportive they can be.
Doubles tennis will kill ya.
What is up with the dad’s expression?!?! I’m *roaring* over here! THAT EYEBROW! Is he an evil genius villain or something?!
Anyone else think that pops looks like Steven Colbert? Maybe it’s just the eyebrow…
That’s what I thought too!
No, no…it’s the patented “Spock eyebrow manuver”.
The kids would have put their hands in their parents’ pockets, except mom didn’t have any…
Oh, the awkward picture of a picture at a weird angle.
Dad’s eyebrow cracks me up.
he’s going for the Stephen Colbert
Or Sam Donaldson. He’s the King.
this looks like some odd attempt at the locomotion dance…
These kids look like the accomplished the sibling cooperative effort of not letting their parents get divorced…
I hope that pic just scanned in weird or something, because the boy on the end looks really wide with a freakishly little head. Either way, still awkward.
