Imagine growing up and never even knowing what a crumb looks like.

It is rare and amazing to have a photograph showing so many buster holds in one location. From left; the parallel, the in your face, the norm, the vertical and finally grandma with the lethal attack vertical hold.
Maybe they all gave them to each other for Christmas. Awesome!
Birthday party at Marney’s!!
“Everyone will bring a regulation Dust Buster (NOT a Dirt Devil!! I COULD NOT BE MORE SERIOUS!!!)”
We have a WINNER!
Ha! The infamous Thanksgiving letter…
NOW THAT IS FUNNY!
Who ya gonna call? DUSTBUSTERS!
The only original idea for a gift was received by the baby.
Guy 2nd from left: “This here’s a first-rate hootenanny!”
Guy with baby: “It’s more like a hoe-down.”
Guy 2nd from left: “Hootenanny!”
Guy with baby: “Hoe-down!”
The Dave Oreck family formally challenges the Van Helsings to a Battle Royale.
Love the Family Guy references.
We don’t need no stinkin’ projector!
I actually really like this picture. It looks like they’re having a lot of fun!
When there’s something straaaange
In the neighborhood…
Who ya gonna call?!
If only they had capes. Then they could look like superheroes. Who ya gonna call….Dustbusters!
I’m thinking one person got a good deal on Dust Busters en masse….so everyone got one for Christmas, lol
When there’s grit and grime
in the family room
…who you gonna call?
Grandma’s is obviously the original, heavier model. . . she needs both hands to bust that dust!
Well this just sucks…
Darn it! You stole my obvious pun! *shakes fist*
I know…I really did laugh myself when I typed it up….
Mom in the middle looks like the only one who’s ever used one of those things before.
Looks like Gramma is having some trouble controlling hers. Those brown dustbusters are nothing but trouble.
good one lol!
This was from BusterCon, the annual convention of DustBuster enthusiasts. The highlight of the ‘con was the newest DustBuster model unveiled early.
Granny is holding hers like a lightsaber!
I’d like to know if the people who take these pictures remember what they were thinking when they took them. What could have possibly prompted this dust buster photo?
If I had to put in a guess as to what they were thinking, I’d say that this was taken on the first day of Passover when you have to remove all chametz. (Chametz, grain product that has been fermented, such as leavened bread)
But why they wanted to take a picture of it is beyond me…maybe a “Baby’s first passover”?
woo-hoo – these dust busters really suck
Grandma: “By The Power Of Grayskull… I Have The Power”
You gotta earn your dustbuster in that family!
Is Grandma’s dustbuster made of cardboard?
I can’t take my eyes off of what ever that thing is on the door. What is it? Not the half-weaving but the fan thing above it. Is it one art object or two?
two.. one weaved door hanger and a straw, hand fan. it looks as though the fan may be decoration, unless they live in the south.
A feather “duster?”
The baby’s expression is priceless!! “Get me outta here!!”
They are very passionate about their dust busters…
Grandma’s buster is the most bada**of all…
Grandma: “On my word, we unleash HELL!”
ha ha I like the way you think!
Well, it’s a unique concept for a family picture theme! LOL
Omigosh, they’re just as proud as the compound bow family! Cleanliness rules!
Who you gonna call?
they are getting ready to bust some dust.
The Christmas of dust busters. It happened in my family.
I love the baby’s tie-dyed shirt! I made a purple one in 5th grade.
But what’s the story here? Did Dust Busters start out like Tupperware, with home parties and whatnot?
Grandma looks like she’s having a hard time busting that bronco. Hang on, Nana! Hang on!
Granma: “By the power of Grayskull, I have the power!”
Grandma is lovely!
Number two from the left likes it a bit too much, and the one holding the baby doesn’t like it enough. And he’s doing it wrong in every other way too.
But grandma? Just about the right amount of love for the duster.
Number two from the left is me. I look like I like it because it was my idea for the photo as a joke. Mom always thought the pic was funny and she loved her buster.
i’m so confused =)
The power of the dustbuster compels you…the power of the dustbuster compels you…
I heart this site!
me too! i learned about this site f/ EW magazine and have been hooked ever since
Looks like Nana’s dust buster is the black sheep of the family.
I was thinking that they all got them for Christmas presents, but Grandma’s doesn’t look so new. My mom would totally do this – buy us all the same Christmas present and then make us pose for pictures with them. Except my family wouldn’t look so happy doing it. The Christmas Sock incident of 2007 is not easily forgotten.
Grandma was dropping a hint … she REALLY wants a new dustbuster
The Christmas Sock incident sounds intriguing. Please, show us the photo.
Please post said incident and let us decide if it not easily forgotten
Eileen is right. We all got them for Christmas. She loved hers. But it was actually my idea (second from the left) to set up the photo. We were happy doing goofy photos like this. Mom had a great sense of humor so she was always game and would have been happy to be on the internet. Not awkward actually.
Aww! They gave grandma the old vacuum..
Who you gonna call? DUSTBUSTERS!
The Hoover family reunion didn’t REALLY start until grandma showed up.
Thread over. You won.
The party was really starting to suck…
Bring your dust buster, we’re taking family photos tonight!!
why doesn’t the baby have one??
That’s probaby why his dad doesn’t look so commited to the photo, poor baby dust buster didn’t bring his
Wow…..granny really looks like she’s out for blood! She gonna bust a mutha up!
“She gonna bust a mutha up!” Hilarious! This comment cracked me up.
Poor kid looks like he’s wondering what the heck is going on!
Am I first?
OH PLEASE don’t start this!!!!!
You know what’s worst than asking “am I the first” and not being first? LEAVING A REPLY THAT SAYS PHIRST!!!1
omg the grandma… so totally awesome
Estelle Getty? TOTALLY Golden Girls moment.
BY THE POWER OF GRAY SKULL….or in the process of summoning the Thundercats…yep. LOVE IT!
