The whole family gathered around the man who started it all.
(submitted by JB)
it’s almost as if the whole family is separated and had individual group pictures taken, then attempted (poorly) to blend them all together.
This looks like two photos, put together you can see a leg that doesn’t belong to anyone on the middle far right hand side.
That’s not a leg. It’s part of the tarp.
I like how everyone had to take off their shoes – no kicking with shoes on!
ARGHHHH ! This is not a contest site for “is it or is it not PHOTOSHOPPED” Can’t you just enjoy the picture in it’s awkward beauty. Or is that all you can see in all these pictures. Sad
i agree. people just need to chill out and enjoy it
The family appears to form the shape of a mushroom cloud.
This is a wondeful picture how family can kep tide and happy after the years and many more to come
Unseen, and thankfully unsmelled: The colossal pile of shoes off camera.
That’s a lot of bare feet.
I think it’s great that, despite time and distance, they were all coordinated enough to wear red, white, and blue. Except the rebel family in the front in the khakis. You can’t tell me those kids don’t own a pair of jeans. You know they will hear from Marney about this.
Sometimes I think you should just fall asleep.
Up next on TruTV: Bob And Kate Plus The Entire Population Of Maroa, Illinois.
hahaha, that made me laugh! *zing*
The uterus is NOT a clown car
bwahahahahha! Good one, Jana
has anyone told the Octomom that lately?
Has anyone commented that a lot of people in this photo look ‘shopped?
It’s cool to get a pic of the whole family and it’s close to being chaotic but for a large family, it’s a decent pic. Not sure why they squished the little kid in the middle though, hope he wasn’t stuck there as punishment! 😉
Dang! Doesn’t anybody read the previous comments before putting their own in? Of course it’s photoshopped! It’s rad anyways! AND the people with feet showing are barefoot!
It’s not always (or even usually) an issue of people not reading other comments. Due to the comment moderation, often times there are no comments at all til the site folks come back to post those comments they choose to post. So redundant comments are usually due to the delay in the posting of moderated comments.
I think that he is an immortal. He’s older, yet looks younger than his children. There can be only one….
The peeps in the back look like paper dolls.
why does this site continue to accept obvious photoshopping?
Isn’t that one of the things that makes this photo awkward…the obvious photoshopping???
Photoshop or not. I don’t care. I love it. I WISH we could get the whole fam dam in ONE photo, at one time. Must. work. on. it.
I thought we were the only ones who said “fam damly!” lol
It was the Amy Misto Family that didn’t read the “white shirt only” e-mail.
Bahahahaha! Levis, that made my day!
clearly Modine, you know nothing about photography… the focus of the portrait should be the parents… not the 14yo in the middle of the shot… though i will give props to the photographer for getting (almost) everyone to smile and look his way… the little kid on the left looks like he’s been crying his eyes out, but at least he’s looking the right direction!
does anyone else find it weird that nobody looks alike?
Is it just me, or does it look like the people in the back row were photoshopped in?
I come from a large extended family and find this quite normal. Yes, we even have the Weasley red hair running through several branches of the family. This would have been my family if we had money for a photographer.
nice HP ref! my fiancee’s family has red hair too. his cousin has 2 carrot-topped sons. true redheads seem to be a dying breed
I’d say at least everyone wearing white was originally in one photo…….
That’s like my new brother-in-law’s family at my sister’s wedding. We come from a relatively small family and then THEY showed up…AAAHHH!!!!!
Wow, 30 people. That’s huge!
It looks like the original photo only included the middle group who are all in white shirts.
Okay….the little girl on her knees on the right side……has a random leg/foot growing out of her back. The placement of the leg doesn’t match ANYONE behind her!
I was starting to worry that I was the only one who noticed that.
The random leg is from the guy sitting behind her in the striped shirt. His leg does look weird but he’s sitting so it’s part of his leg.
i think youre right. but hes not kneeling, nor sitting on the floor; i think he is sitting on some type of chair, or cube or something. his heights too close to the others to be kneeling or sitting on the floor.
It belongs to the guy in the blur & white striped shirt, he’s kneeling on one knee, with the other foot flat on the floor in front of him
I’m not buying the guy kneeling story. Mathematically, if that were his leg, it would make him about seven feet tall… from the floor to his waist. Not to mention, the angle is completely wrong unless his leg juts out of his hip at a right angle in a frog-like way. I think it is a trace element of Photoshop.
seven feet tall to his waist? well, that would explain why he is seated…
I agree, it’s just a mistake. And the funniest part of the pic!
I think everybody NOT in white were photoshopped in! Pretty funny for the kid in the middle! AWKWARD!! I am from a large family and trust me…. the group photos are ALWAYS awkward!
Man. Photoshop usually makes the photos better. Masking makes for awkwardness!
The captions are absolutely the best part of this entire site. This one is great!!
Some of those people in the back are totally photoshopped into the picture. Look at the lighting…
That is freaking hilarious!
Is it just me, or is there a very photoshopped quality to some of the people in the back row??
Looks like a good candidate for Photoshop Disasters, too. Light source is everywhere. Yow!
Can anyone else smell the group photoshopping on this one?
Have to give kudos to the photog for catching that many people with decent expressions (eyes open, looking in right direction, etc.)…. that being said…it’s chaos. I think what bothers me most (besides the random lighting pattern) is the trio in the center. Center dude looks squashed and the guy to the right is a little too happy to be straddling up that close. Looks like a big happy awkward family.
They really are straddling him…yikes! I agree…awkward.
The one looks like he is saying, “RAWR!” LOL
I just noticed the straddling. Oh gosh…THAT is awkward.
photoshopped may I say…
He’s awfully prolific, for a 14 yr. old…
Good Eye ! Bad arrangment .
I think the photog just forgot the photoshop the “man who started it all”. I mean there is room for him there. Unless the 14 yr old is actually a time traveler who when back in time in order to produce offspring older than himself….
I was thinking the same, but only because of the caption. Actually, I was looking for the kid in the middle to be holding an urn.
some of those people in the back look photoshopped in…
Not awkward in my opinion.
ugh, SOOOOOO photoshopped. the shadows aren’t even consistent. Also, look at the lack of physical contact beyond all the people in white. This is sad. Come on guys, you can do better than this!
As the eldest of twelve children, I don’t find this picture awkward at all. Kudos to the man!
Yup! I was on the other end of the birth order and had the hand-me-down clothes to prove it. Sort of like the Awkardian Era photo.
This isn’t awkward, it’s amazing. There is not one person looking the wrong way, or shutting their eyes, or making a geeky face. I think this is an awesome picture.
except for the kid in the blue stripped shirt on the left crying and the girl next to him looking like she is about to sneeze.
That was the first person I really saw.. that poor little guy..
i think they (dare i say it) photoshopped uncle brad and uncle ted in there in the back…
Yeah, the lighting is completely different on them, isn’t it?
I was thinking the same thing…a few of them look photoshopped in.
I feel really sorry for the kid in the very middle!
I can’t imagine what it took to get everyone together for this picture, it wouldbe imposible in my family.
And with a few of them airbrushed in.
