The Anniversary Party - Grandparents

What better way to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary than by preserving their love forever in cardboard?

  2. GG says:

    So… who else thinks they’ll have cutouts at their funerals?

  3. Allison says:

    Reminds me of the picture my grandma had in Washington DC with “Ronald and Nancy Reagan”…they too were made of cardboard!

  4. Poster5 says:

  5. John says:

    well atleast they didnt cancel …. LOL

  6. Emily says:

    Not cardboard. Rigor mortis.

  7. Bri says:

    Were they THAT indisposed that they couldn’t take time to take a photo with the kiddies?

  8. Kristy says:

    Wait – I thought paper (cardboard) was for the first anniversary. Shouldn’t these two be cast in gold?

  9. someone says:

    They couldn’t appear here tonight as they were busy, “getting busy”, so they sent this cardboard cutout of themselves for our enjoyment.

    No one could figure out why Grandma and Grandpa weren’t as chatty as usual at the family reunion.

  11. imlovingattention says:

    the mom of this brood is obviously hiding behind the cardboard cutout! and also, this was wwaaaayyy before digital photoshopping! lol!

    “Weekend at Bernie’s” but without the big budget…..

  13. Poodle says:

    The taxidermist couldn’t have mom and dad done in time. But this is almost as good!

  14. Tab & Jame says:

    Grandma and Grandpa died a couple of years ago. We got them a cardboard cutout and they never noticed the difference…

    “Dear Family,

    Seasons Greetings! As you can see, we are all doing wonderful in sunny California. Everyone is alive and well. And we included a picture to prove it. There’s Suzie, Mary, and Grandma and Grandpa and myself. Happy as ever. Healthy, alive, breathing… and definitely NOT cardboard. Well Happy New Year! Will write again next year! Everything is fine. That’s for sure. No need to ask questions.

    All five of us.

    Uh hello everyone, the shadows, the angles, it’s so obvious,
    Those g-parents are so not really there

    • Kimberly says:

      Well, that’s because grandma and grandpa can’t stand there all damn day while everyone gets a picture taken with them. Hard on the knees and feet, you know.

      Poor little girl on the right looks like she didn’t want to stand next to giant paper doll grandparents. She was seriously creeped out.

    “Daddie, why are Grammie and Grampa so thin?”

  18. Wyatt says:

    After the photo shoot, grandpa started hitting everyone with his Rex Harrison hat.

  19. JQR3 says:

    this is pretty awesome.

  20. binkymae says:

    How big was this anniversary bash that this couple knew in advance that they would not have time to pose with everyone who wanted a picture with them?

  21. lplzydeco in Denver,CO says:

    I’m sorry, this defies explanation! Were they too busy to pose for pictures? Is this actually their wake & time for just one last shot with gramma & grampa? This is like those celebrity cutouts at liquor stores…

  22. Reo says:

    Awkward is that the younger girl obviously wanted to wear her big sister’s other Lily Pulitzer dress. That’s gonna be even more awkward than Standie Grandparents when they use that pic for the slideshow on her 21st!

  23. Scott says:

    I’m going to get a cardboard me and send copies nationwide!

    • Mama Mc says:

      I was listening to this radio show one time and they would take these cardboard cutouts and place them in front of peoples doors and ring the door bell and run off and watch their reactions. hehehe FUNNY

  24. Jeff Metal UK says:

    Even though the elderly couple had recently been involved in a horrific steamroller accident, they were determined that the anniversary party would go ahead as planned…
