Perhaps the Renaissance would have been a better call.

That’s soooooooo creepy
I know that girl in the red dress!!!! If that’s her, we had dance classes together in college.
Sadly the girl in the red is me about 7 years ago and I am in college now so nope, it’s not your former friend.
When school teachers get crazy.
This is my favourite Fleetwood Mac album.
where is the guy’s other arm
Someone just please explain to me…..WHY….would you take a picture like this with your mom and dad…..I would run away screaming into the amusment park or wherever we were if I was even asked…….Creepy…..I just find this creepy.
You can see that ‘dad’ has just realised exactly how this pic will look.
The beer stein is so out of place. He needs a glass full of bourbon. And then sepia-tone it!
My family has a similar photo
accpet i was about six and my sister was two, so yeah
i try and stay away from themed photos.
The mum in this photo seems right at home considering
Are either of you straddling the arm of the sofa with one leg draped over your father?
why the heck would any person sit like that girl in the blue dress – leg sticking so AWKWARDLY out like that…?! that position makes her look like a broken doll ~ _ ~
… and they wonder why I drink?
this is so beautifully awkward.
When Sam Adams meets 3 Saloon Girls…..Always a Good Choice
I hope this is a promotional photo for some kind of cheesy wild west theater performance…
Do you think those are all siblings or do you think that two of them are parents? either way it’s scaaaaaaary.
awkward, the girl in blue hand placement….
I think she’s just pulling up the right side of her dress to show more leg and didn’t relocate it.
What about her one leg propped up on Dad?
Wow. Who thought this was a good idea? I have my suspicions. Mom is in the background with an “Oooooh, yeah, this is perfect” look.
except for the pewter mug, this almost works. but who is related to whom, and how?
Why is it that the only one who looks alive is the one in the back?
The strangest thing about this pic to me is the fact that everyone’s limbs are all akimbo, especially the girl in blue.
Wow. Everything I really want to say would never get past the Moderator. It’s just so…uncomfortable.
Miley? Billy Ray? Is that you?
Mom’s pulling off the arm-shelf-on a-leg-shelf combo! Double Awkward Points to her!
I’m just wondering why this isn’t in sepia tones.
I’m just glad there weren’t any brothers in the picture too!
Because THAT would make it awkward?
LOL! @ Melisa!
Can’t. Breathe. Must. Stop. Lol-ing. And. Crying. Stomach. Hurts.
Thx. Melisa. D.
looks like a v.c. andrews book cover
I totally agree!
Awkward holding of the beer stein and VERY awkward pose of girl in blue … wouldn’t the photographer notice these things??
Where do you hang such a portrait?
I’m guessing not in their therapist’s waiting room.
It’s obvious they were trying for an old west theme…..didn’t quite make it with the standard studio background and the girls dresses that resemble 80’s prom attire!
What’s lacking here is a skunk or a couple of monkeys in dresses (of course, they would be in regulation sized dresses)
Oh don’t forget the compound bow!
Absolutely… a compound bow would complete the picture nicely, as long as it is a
regulation sized bow.
How many times must you be corrected?
They need a CROSSBOW!!!
I wonder if “Dad” has 8 or more siblings, because he resembles my former boss, who has 8 or more siblings…could definitely pass for brothers. Hmm.
I just don’t understand The Leg of Little Girl Blue.
The only authentic looking one is the girl in the red dress.
Traditional family portrait gone awkward, verrrrrrry awkward.
NOW I have a great idea for what we can put on our Christmas card this year!
Mom’s rockin’ that super-high knee shelf. The girl on the left is trying to pull it off, but she just doesn’t have it, yet.
All I can say, is that is one flexible mother!!
It’s from all that can-can dancing, dontcha know.
Thank God for the placement of “Dads” head.
that chair’s either built for a really fat guy or two tiny people.
Out of everything in this photo that can bother me, the one thing that I can’t get past is that the girl in red’s head is cut off. This photo has potential to be a fun photo, but instead everyone looks unhappy.
Actually, I don’t think her head was necessarily cut off. As comments below point out, this is one of those faux painted prints. You can see the glare from a flash in the lower right-hand corner. So I’m guessing that whoever took the photo of the picture cut off the girl’s head.
Nonetheless, there plenty of other awkward goodness in this picture.
I think this was originally a round picture, but when they scanned it they only kept it at “regular” picture proportions. I highly doubt that the photographer would have let that happen.
But after looking at everything else in the picture, anything’s possible…
Actually, it’s from taking a picture of it. I used to have to make copies of old photos (back in the days this photo is set) and sometimes the glare from the flash would hit the picture and create that flare. It’s very annoying.
This is awkward.
I am just so confused by everything going on in this picture- the clothes, the facial expressions, the awkward holding of the beer stein. Why? Just…why?
This would have been a normal family saloon picture. However, as it is in color with that smeared 80s background and the daughter’s leg resting on her father’s leg…well, it’s just awkward. Maybe they had one too many…
THAT’S the problem..it’s in color, which makes the costumes just look like cheap Halloween atire — should be sepia or b/w.
Did they HAVE black panty hose back in the Old West?
No, in those days women didn’t shave their legs so they had a permanent 5 o’clock shadow instead.
Well…the family that plays together…*koff*
I got nothing.
Always the truest sign of an awesomely awkward photo; the ability to render speechless. Makes me laugh every time some has ‘got nothing’ though.
THAT is awkward!!!
The funny thing is, that they actually dress like that every day.
These girls appear to be escapees from from The Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland….
I expect they’ll be bustin’ some can-can at any moment.
Can-can they pull off this look?
Can-can therapy and medication help them through this?
The Andersons decided against the usual holiday attire while collecting for the Salvation army this year.
Bwaahahahaaa So true 🙂
I know want to watch “Tombstone” quite desperately now.
I meant “I NOW want to watch”…gah…sorry.
All is forgiven, Elle. All is forgiven:)
