He did it for the nookie.

I just can’t work out whether this is an old man, or a very sad kid.
Bringin’ sexy back.
Papa had a squeezebox………….
He may have warmed ’em up for Area 57, but he still has a following on yahoo!
Is that a chicken picture under the lamp on the wall? Does the yellow note pad propped against the wall say “Help me”?
Is that Matt?
Keep on singing, Don’t stop singing, You’re gonna be a star someday, You’re gonna make a lot of people happy, When they come to hear you play. They said keep on singin, Keep the accordian a ringin
Les Paul’s first attempt at making an intrument to sell to the world,strangely, fell on deaf ears….
my oldest sister took accodian lessons for a couple of years when i was younger and for the longest time, i thought all houses had an accordian on display in their family room.
We see here the beginnings of the “emo”!
He’s actually thinking of the best way to express how much his life sucks with an emotional song set to the deep and dark melodious tones of the accordion. You can see this in the longing expression on his face as he stares into nothing visualizing his pain. Sadly for him he never quite got it right which just fuels his angst all the more thrusting him into the depths of despair.
Herbert here was just an emotional freak long before his time! He will be missed!
email from Marnie:
Should there be a repeat of last year’s snickering incident while Egbert is entertaining us, said snickerer will be sent home wearing the contents of the Mike Byron Family’s turnip dish. AND I COULD NOT BE MORE SERIOUS!
I’d be willing to wear the turnips if it meant I could leave early.
Great reference to Marnie. Am just waiting for a crossbow remark. ha ha.
A young man, his accordion and the promise of nookie…..what more could the 50’s offer this amazingly hot stud???
Ready to play along, Wally’s anticipation grew as he waited for the show that always gave him chills, the Lawrence Welk Show.
Norbert’s dad told him, “Son, play the accordion. It’s an entire orchestra in one instrument, and you can be the Flaco Jimenez of South Dakota.”
Excellent comment. I love Flaco!
Look, he actually has a “turtle neck”!
That’s a dickie.
It it wierd that the thing I find funniest/most awkward about this picture is his neck? Seriously, this kid’s like a giraffe!
How sweet, he keeps the accordion case right at the foot of the bed so that if there’s a fire in the middle of the night he can just grab everything and jump out the window.
I think he’s adorable!!
So do I!
Thats my cousin Vernon.
Looks like he found the perfect picture for his next album cover!
People just didn’t understand the devotion between Herbert and his main squeeze.
aaaaaww…. pun abuse!!!! lol
I saw this cat open for Metallica back in the 80’s.
No matter how cool you think you are now, there was a time …
The creepy dark woods outside give it all a sort of “Blair Witch” feel.
The eerie sound of accordion polkas as Evil Things creep about outside.
Never before seen picture of a young Robert Plant taken shortly after he penned the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven.
This made me laugh out loud! 🙂
Well…. he’s done it for me! And I’m a straight man!
Weird I was thinking the same thing. He’s beauty transcends gender…
Ugh “his” not “he’s”… too early.
“Who is this ‘Lady of Spain’ who calls to me? Who beckons my love? Lady of Spain, I adore you…”
Oddly, I find him attractive.
NOW, i would be in love with this guy. back then, i probably would have thrown bad fruit at him. (i think i have his accordion!) [i think this is a pic of my friend’s uncle…]
Free Bird! Free Bird!
He should make friends with the bagpiper from a few days ago.
Best. Caption. Ever.
Just chillin’ in my bedroom …. with my accordian …. what??
Such a simple comment, yet it gave me so much joy. Thank you Pocket Pal, thank you.
Oh my goodness that is so funny because I used this picture for a family project as my dad!
I agree and want to thank Pocket Pal for the most delightful one-word comment ever!
I think it’s MY dad. Are we related?
Weird Al as a kid…
You beat me to it!
Norman Bates: The Pre-Taxidermy Years.
A True Gentleman: One who knows how to play the accordion, but doesn’t.
I like you
I like you even more.
I’m sure that he owns a software company now and is married to a supermodel.
This one screams “awkward.” Good job!
Only the Lonely, man.
…and that young man grew up to be Marilyn Manson.
Is that a window or an art piece in the background?! Lol… whatever it is this picture is priceless!! Oh the good ole days!
Marilyn here is gonna be my ticket out of this godforsaken town.
Young Barry Manilow had big dreams and someday, with the help of his trusty accordion, he would make them come true.
i bet he got a lot too!
Hey, it worked for Weird Al!
That caption is priceless.
Hahaha. I sooo agree with that. I think I just peed alittle.
I am at work where I’m not supposed to be on this site and had to silently double over with laughter for about 10 minutes. Best caption ever!
