    This is what photos looked like before we started shooting all photos from up high. They looked a LOT more realistic than the duck-faced photos of today that make everyone’s eyes look big and their hips small!

    I miss this ‘fro-boy! Went to high school with him, and yes, this was taken in the ’70’s! Muah M.M.

  3. I’ve had an Afro for 6 years. It’s a statement of who I am and where I’m from. Enjoy the Fro!

  4. Marty says:

    Down in fro__ Bro…….

  5. Emy Kate says:

    At least he’s wearing tidy whiteys. I don’t think the pict would have survived if fro- man was going commando.

  6. Dee says:

    Holy crap I know them. Seriously. That or I know ALL their twins.

  7. norma says:

    grandpa thinking: “when will this damn seventies phase finally go away”?

  8. Lexi says:

    Ya know…. There are just a couple of things I really didn’t need or want to see in life. And I think I just saw one. Haha.
    I love the fact that the grandpa has to actually look around the kid’s Fro.
    And the kids shorts are displaying his underwear so nicely. 😛
    Also, the woman to the far left, holding the little girl..I think she wanted to hide her identity, so she used the little kid. Haha! Why didn’t she just jump in the kid’s fro to hide!?
    And another thing.. I think the fro kid is glaring at someone that made fun of his groovy hair. lol.

    Man, that is awesome. The fro, the shorty shorts with contrasting trim piping, the tube socks, the sex-ay pose, and the come-hither look he is giving Cousin Leon off-screen. Girl, you are workin’ it out!

  10. Alex says:

    Love the striped tube socks/ afro / super-short 70’s gym shorts combo!

  12. Missy says:

    Hahaha!! TIghty whities! And long white socks, mm hmm.

  13. Kristin says:

    My first thought.

    Foxy Cleopatra

  14. whatttttt says:

    Mind the fro?? How about minding the tighty-whitys peeking out from those super short shorts????

  15. imlovingattention says:

    he’s posing like no one else is in the room! it’s all about me and my fro! … and man thigh!

  16. sooz says:

    Agree w/ Frank – I was thinking the SAME thing……70’s , 80’s – Heck – could have been last week!!!! LOL

  17. James says:

    the little kid on the left is adorable

  18. Calamity says:

    Omg.. I love the way grandpa is leaning out so he can see around the Fro in front of him… lol..

  19. alicia says:

    That is the sweetest fro I’ve seen in ages!!!!! Not awkward, AWESOME! There just aren’t enough pictures of really good fros in this world.

  20. manduh says:

    man my inlaws are awesome!

  21. Peggy says:

    And don’t we love the woman on the far right, escaping from the photo by concealing herself behind her child? Maybe SHE should have sat behind Afro-Man.

  22. Melody says:

    I love how the guy behind tube socks appears to be emerging from the Fro.

  23. Xina says:

    Were it not for the guy from that Scooby-Doo episode when the gang meets the Harlem Globe Trotters – with his super 70s fro, his socks, and his shortie shorts – the rest of the picture could’ve been taken anytime from like 1970 – today. Everyone else looks totally average, normal. I like it that this guy is bringing sexy back!

  24. Bastet11 says:

    I just think maximum awesomeness has been reached. Don’t bother trying any more, people.

  25. Ray says:

    I think that’s my cousin!

  26. MG says:

    Yeah! Sexy!

  27. Ann says:

    At least his calves are warm!

  28. Frank says:

    The Awarkwardness to me stems from the fact that you can’t really tell what this picture’s from. Afro Man looks like he’s from the 70’s. The others look like they may be from the 80’s or 90’s. The furniture and carpet look to be from 70’s or 80’s. Pick a decade.

  29. JoMama says:

    …and now playing for the Lakers, Erwin M. Fletcher, 5 foot 7 inches…with the afro, 6’9″…

    Kareem! My dad says you don’t play defense except in the playoffs…

    …stop me before I quote another 80s movie…

  30. hellkitty says:

    I’m more disturbed by the overabundance of man-thigh on display–good gawd, shorts used to be short!

  31. Lindsay says:

    I love how grandpa actually has to crane his head upward just to get his face out from behind that huge fro..

  32. Leslie says:

    Grandpa’s wishing he had his hedge trimmer right about now!

  33. cynthia says:

    Barack Obama: The early days

  34. Lynn says:

    I find the fact that we’re half an inch away from seeing all the way up Grandma’s dress waayyyy more awkward than the fro.

  35. Tim says:

    When not fighting crime with Pete and Julie, Linc Hayes just liked to ‘cool ouut’ at home with the family.
