    Any awkwardness conveyed by the photo above is, in truth, an illusion. While I have never met the prom date and, therefore, cannot attest to his overall level of awkwardness, the mom and her daughters (my cousins) are totally awesome folks who unselfconsciously disclosed that they appear on this site when I happened to mention that I get a kick out of it. I’ve had a lifetime of awkward moments but none have been immortalized here. They’ve made the Big Time and I couldn’t be prouder! :-)

    They know that same person that while taking the picture says “Turn sideways it will make you look thinner”

  3. Natty says:

    At least it’s a pretty dress.

    Da-na-na-na-na-na….Da-na-na-na-na….Da-na-na-na-na…hop hop hop!!!

    You can always tell the one who doesn’t want to be in the picture. The one in front is saying… “Just take the darn picture already!!”

  6. liz says:

    It looks like the middle 2 are going to prom and the parents decide to hop on in the picture and get on the train!

    My second favorite to the ninja turtle family

  8. Suki says:

    AHHHHHHH! Is that a prom pic. it is awkward. I think those smiles were photoshopped.

  9. Ellen says:

    Is that mom or dad on the right?

  10. wedding cars says:

    They’re probably very nice people. Probably.


  11. Nancy says:

    I think this is mom and her three kids. They all look alike (particularly in the chin area) and the picture makes sense in that context. It is wedding related, I would guess. The two siblings in the middle are a bridesmaid and a groomsman. Notice the purple in both of their outfits.

    Hah! Great caption.

    ♫ Come on baby do the locomotion. ♫

    The guy’s face is just too funny. I think prom though.

  14. emm says:

    i think each of the lovely couple was allowed to bring a chaperone of their choice. she picked her mom and he picked his other girlfriend.

  15. PourpreNoir says:

    ok, this literally made me laugh. I love this site, but not many of the photos literally made me laugh. I love their faces. Priceless.

  16. kegbot says:

    Ok I finally got what those dresses remind me of – lemon fizzies. Still, I think this is a cute picture.

  17. Brandon says:

    This must be the slowest conga line in the world. I also wonder if, upon developing the film (because this was obviously before digital cameras), did the photographer say, “Oh, no! One of the cars is completely covered up and the other one got cut off!”

  18. Sue says:

    Mom doesn’t look very comfortable.

  19. GuardMama says:

    Sweet Ride.

  20. Tim says:

    “People all over the world,
    join hands…
    Start a Love Train…Love Train…”

  21. FavaBean says:

    And for dinner at that oh-so-special prom, we’ll be serving Groundhog a la Granny .22 on regulation dishware.

  22. KatieMB says:

    Allllllllll aboard the awkward train!

    Photographic proof- For when you’re secure enough and brave enough to don a daffodil inspired leisure suit.

  24. Jim says:

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

    White tuxedos are just wrong. Absolutely wrong.

    • jnmcnally says:

      Yes – wearing white after Labor Day? C’mon, gimme a break!

      At first I thought it was a wedding photo (like others) and wondered what kind of wedding would feature such an assortment of dress codes.

      • teri says:

        Look at the trees- this photo was taken in the spring so a white tux is ok date-wise. Still, why ruin a prom photo putting two people in it who are NOT dressed up??

    • JQ says:

      Is it just me, or is his suit yellow, just like her dress? His dress shirt is white, and compared to that, the suit looks yellow, to match her dress.

  25. Cassandra says:

    I thought it was a wedding too until I saw the corsage. Definitely a strange photo. Why would you want to sandwich the prom couple in a photo?

  26. rwblake says:

    This photo is all about the two people on the left.
    Why does he look like the girl behind him just got a little grab of his rear end?

  27. anniebananie says:

    1….2….3…. EVERYBODY, CONGAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

  28. w says:

    that’s a fine example of how NOT to do wedding photography.


  29. Jeff M says:

    I got nothin’

  30. Penny D. says:

    Even the awkwardness of this photo cannot diminish the awesomeness of that song.

  31. cowgirl says:

    You put your left foot in, you take your left foot out, you put your left foot in….. then you shake it all about.. you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what its all about……………………


  32. Someone’s really excited about his prom night. . . ;)

  33. That dress totally messed up the put your hands in the pockets of the person in front of you!

  34. PHEW says:

    From the look on the guys face, I wonder where the left hand is of the girl on the far left. Christmas goose time?

  35. venusinfurs79 says:
