It’s never too early to start the train.

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”
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!!”
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
AHHHHHHH! Is that a prom pic. it is awkward. I think those smiles were photoshopped.
Is that mom or dad on the right?
They are both the girl’s Mom.
They’re probably very nice people. Probably.
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.
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.
holy crap now THAT was funny!
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.
Ok I finally got what those dresses remind me of – lemon fizzies. Still, I think this is a cute picture.
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!”
Mom doesn’t look very comfortable.
Can you blame her?
Yeah she looks downright…awkward. There ought to be a blog for pictures of awkward people like her or something.
hehe its funny because this is a blog for awkward people like her (explaining sarcasm family guy style) HA!
I think it’s because she doesn’t have anyone in front of her to hold on to. She’s totally what makes this photo awkward, IMO.
Mom’s thinking…Why in the world did you make me get into this photo??
“People all over the world,
Start a Love Train…Love Train…”
I love it!
And for dinner at that oh-so-special prom, we’ll be serving Groundhog a la Granny .22 on regulation dishware.
…said Groundhog having been dispatched with a crossbow.
Not if Granny has anything to say about it. That’s why she’s called Granny .22
maybe she borrowed a compound bow from the vanhelsings….
Allllllllll aboard the awkward train!
Photographic proof- For when you’re secure enough and brave enough to don a daffodil inspired leisure suit.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.
White tuxedos are just wrong. Absolutely wrong.
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.
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??
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.
I think they are both Ivory. An Ivory tux or suit is less dorky then a white one. I hate white tuxes as well.
I thought they were both in yellow too.
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?
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?
1….2….3…. EVERYBODY, CONGAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
that’s a fine example of how NOT to do wedding photography.
Prom more likely.
I got nothin’
Even the awkwardness of this photo cannot diminish the awesomeness of that song.
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……………………
OR………………. IT’S SOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLL TRAINNNNNNNNNNNN!
Totally Soul Train. You nailed it.
Someone’s really excited about his prom night. . .
That dress totally messed up the put your hands in the pockets of the person in front of you!
From the look on the guys face, I wonder where the left hand is of the girl on the far left. Christmas goose time?
oooh… is that prom? totally looks like wedding attire… oh well, awkward anyway!
