    It is the EARNESTNESS. He represents all who who want to get along, do well and be accepted!!

  2. Joe says:

    Frighteningly enough, this could very well be a picture of my father in his youth.

  3. ITALIA says:

    That room, OMG….I think I’m going to cry.

  4. Lady says:

    Okay, can’t top the comments or the caption. But that room is totally depressing. I want to laugh and then I see the room and I just want to cry. Poor kid.

  5. Awkward Aficionado says:

    It’s positively Norman Rockwell-ian!

  6. Johanna says:

    This dude actually exists.. in Sweden. And he plays in a band (surprise surprise!).

  7. Treapy says:

    I don’t even know what to say to this one. XDXD

  8. Rio says:

    Seriously mom, I think that I got something stuck in this thing! This can’t be good!

  9. I love this photo! OK, I get awkward, but this photo is also somehow very touching. I feel like I know this guy, like I’m in his head… please make it stop!

    Nice find, Mike.

  10. Robin says:

    Before becoming famous for his Wall of Sound, Phil Spector experimented with a Wall of Polka.

  11. JJ says:

    The neatly made bed, and the suitcase made me kinda weep.
    Funny, and yet touching.

    (We are all accordion players inside).

    “oh behave… it’s time for something shag-a-delic, baby”

  13. Jeff says:

    best. caption. ever.

  14. binkymae says:

    I’m guessing by dating the decor that this family never missed Lawrence Welk. Not everyone can dance, not everyone has those striking good look, not everyone can make those bubbles fall perfectly on the dance floor on cue. His big break is just around the corner and he will be ready!

  15. Shannon says:

    OMG. That’s my Uncle. He’s not a babe he’s an *******.

  16. elder says:

    Best. Caption. Ever.

  17. Patty Babel Superstar says:

    He is Super Delicious!

  18. Alekx says:

    I really like this picture. It’s nice.
    I’m jealous of his accordion,
    it has like twice as many button keys than mine does.

    I still love my Alfred (the accordion) though!

  19. Tim says:

    Gregory knew it in his heart: you didn’t need no guitar to play the blues.

    • Bosco says:

      Damn, I just snorted and landed little gobs of sandwich on my screen when i read your post. If you are looking for a job as a captioner, you just laid down a hell of an audition.

  20. Jenna says:

    I seriously – no joke – think he’s not. I have a huge thing for nerds. He can play that accordion for me ANY day!

  21. Kim says:

    Alright, who posted the photo of my Dad? I totally agree. Best caption ever!

  22. Sarah says:

    Now, THAT’S what I call awkward!

  23. Ali says:

    Best caption ever!

  24. Jenny says:

    Weird Al Yankovic?

  25. MP says:

    This man makes awkward look sexy. (He’s bringing awkward back..)

  26. Name the movie these song lyrics come from, perhaps the most underrated piece of comedic genius in the History of cinema…

    “Telling the truth can be dangerous buisiness. Honest and popular don’t go hand in hand. If you admit you can play the accordian, no one will hire you in a rock-and-roll band!”

    Anyone? Bueller?

  27. Mike says:

    I love this guy!

  28. Lisa says:

    This is priceless!

  29. JoMac says:

    Who ever comes up with these captions – MAKES MY DAY! EVERY DAY!

  31. sidekick says:

    Oh…I find him adorble. Bet he hits his head on that lamp everytime he gets out of bed!

  32. darkshines says:

    I totally would.

  33. Doc says:

    That is the first caption that has made me burst into laughter in a while–AFP, FTW! 🙂

  34. doggiekittymama says:

    i’m pretty sure my grandparents had that wallpaper. They had the accordian and the box to hold it at the foot of his bed too. I love the kitchen style wall lamp in the bedroom. Post depression era make do decorating.

  35. lagrange says:

    Alas, young Edsel was crushed when he heard that the accordian was not part of the high school marching band.

  36. Quickstep says:

    He looks like he sees a monster or a ghost.

  37. GuardMama says:

    “Kenneth, keep it down up there, with all that new-fangled accordion music!”

  38. lagrange says:

    “Ladddyyyy of… lad… llaaaddd… lady offf … lady of ssspain I adore youuuu…..”

  39. Soupy says:

    Accordion’s grace touched him !

  40. Karen says:

    I just love this picture! Really captures the essence of awkwardness! Kudos to the caption writer on this one!

  41. Hampus says:

    Reminds my me of my friend, they look alike and he actually plays the accordion too.

  42. erin says:

    I really like this one! It’s not awkward, it’s cute!

  43. Nyria says:

    the nookie!? I just blew my milk out my nose! HA!

  44. Maya B says:

    I MUST have the name of his interior decorator!

  45. Patty says:

    Sadly, those glasses are back in fashion again.

  46. Hello? says:

    Dad; “Poindexter! What’s that noise? What are you doing in there?”

    Son: “Gee, Dad, I’m just playing my accordion! Honest!”

  47. Barbie says:

    hey that would get you nookie if you lived in Sweden, even today..

  48. nite owl says:


  49. 12gager says:

    Hey! Try this out for extra awkwardness. Put the “Doubt” photo to the left of “The Soloist” and we finally have the answer to who the priest and the accordian player are both looking at. That is some really awkward time travel there.

    Roll out the barrel, roll out the barrel of fun…
