    aww….love this pic! this easily could have been my family in the 70’s only white…and fro guy would’ve been my uncle with braces, and a david cassidy fly away shag hair do!

  2. Jen says:

    Didn’t anyone notice he’s sitting between his grandpa’s legs? Awkward.

  3. veronica says:

    ummmmmmmmmm, this guy is my favourite guy of all guys.

    i would like to shake his hand.

  4. Lori says:

    The guy is thinking “Is that hamhocks and collards I’m smellin ‘ or Gramma’s feet?”

  5. Maya B. says:

    It’s…Super Fly!

    And I still say that looks like Bill Cosby peering over the ‘fro…

  6. missturtle says:

    I see London,
    I see France,
    I see that man’s underpants!

  7. Sidekick says:

    “Hey,hey,hey. What’s Happenin’ Dwayne!”

  8. Lacie says:

    Ya know, with a fro’ like that it makes one wonder how often you get caught and entangled in s**t. Just wondering. Seems like you would REALLY have to pay attention to where you are going at all times.

  9. mandypandy says:

    Ch-ch-ch CHIA!

  10. nite owl says:

    I bet he could seriously hide a compound bow in that fro!

  11. Emilita says:

    It looks like grandpa’s head is sprouting from the ‘fro garden. Hilarious!

  12. gruven_reuven says:

    don’t know which fro I like better… This one or the one in “hairspray”

  13. Stacia says:

    Shaft? Is that you?

  14. NuttyMom says:

    I love this pic. I had a step-brother with the exact same look “back in the day”. I loove the tube socks, Good Times!

  15. Joanne says:

    I don’t know what’s worse the short shorts or the fro! A 70’s classic for sure!

  16. Natalie says:

    It’s nice to see that awkwardness is color blind.

  17. Kurtacus says:

    Grandpa was confident that, in a sudden davenport disaster, his emergency Hair-Bag would deploy.

  18. OhMyCandida says:

    And thus the name “La-Z Boy Recliner” was born.

  19. lagrange says:

    Just two words come to mind: SSSSSOOOUUUULLLLL TRRAAAAIIIINNNN!

  20. dsto says:

    “Down in front Julius!”

  21. glasstabletop says:

    I love how grandpa is cranning his neck around the afro.

  22. Leeny says:

    The Harlem Globetrotters music popped into my head looking at this

  23. Roxanne says:

    I love peek-a-boo Grandpa! So cute!

  24. nj says:

    Ain’t we lucky we got ’em? Good tiiiiiiiiimes!!! Yea-a-a-h…!

  25. Gwynnie says:

    In a related story, Harlem is missing one Globetrotter.

  26. Laurie says:

    I love how the lady in the back is hiding behind that little girl.

  27. levis says:

    Fo’ schizzle, ‘fro schnizzle.

  28. emm says:


  29. Fat Albert says:

    HEY, HEY, HEY. Heyba manba!

  30. Levis says:

    Fo schizzle, ‘fro schnizzle.

  31. maureen says:

    This is perhaps my favorite family photo of all time. This family has it going on!

  32. Yup says:

    You mess with the ‘fro, you gots to go.

  33. wombat says:

    he is THE MAN!!!

  34. LHer says:

    I don’t know which ‘do is more fantastic – the Fro, or Hairspray Granny in the previous picture. I think Granny’s ‘do beats Fro-boy by a hair. 🙂

  35. teresa says:

    wow. love the peek at his tighties too!

  36. nic says:

    Why am I so concerned that right after this was taken Granny pulled a Britney Spears?

  37. Jon says:

    It was apparently commonplace in 1984 for Dr. J to walk right off the court and into the living room of an unsuspecting family.

  38. Brandon says:

    And, amazingly, it is the little girl with the smallest head of all who is blocking someone else’s face! (although grandpa is straining a little to see the camera…)

  39. Allie says:

    I myself am a big fan of the sliver of tighty-whitey that he’s rockin’…

  40. carrie says:

    love how the grandpa behind the fro has moved his head to the side so it’s not blocking his face!

  41. Shayner says:

    I like how granddad has to peer around the ‘fro to be in the picture. Dude does look like he’s got a wicked jumpshot, though. It’s the socks.

    “He’s stands at 6’1…6’5 with the ‘fro.”

  42. m says:

    Rock those socks! All the guys tried to look like the pro basketball players in those things. Ah, memories.

  43. Cincoflex says:

    Whoa, nice block there at center!

  44. Yummy says:

    DY-NO-MITE!!!!! =D

  45. merrrily says:

    I love how the little girl on the left is DYING to get her hands in his hair!

  46. binkymae says:

    OH MAN, somebody is getting in trouble for sending this one in! I suspect the culprit is either the photographer or the one hiding behind the cute little girl. I love the man leaning to make sure he gets in the picture.

  47. Whoa says:

    Nothin’ from nothin’ leaves nothin’
    You gotta have somethin’ if you wanna be with me…

  48. RT says:

    Woah, thats a lot of leg.

  49. patkerash says:

    Early 70’s I believe…just stick a “pick” in the back of that fro and you had an automatic arrest….ahhhhh those weren’t the days

  50. LK says:

    FIERCE! the socks…the pose…the sideways glance…the peekaboo tidy whities…the moustache…and of course, the fro!
