See if you can find the twenty-three families in this photo.

If I have to read one more comment about whether or not a picture is photoshopped…does it really matter whether a picture is photoshopped or not? And by the way, I can’t figure out who the mom and dad are in this picture, or whether there are two families combined here..and is Michelle Duggar really pregnant again? Come on, how old is she and how many pregnancies has her poor body sustained? Her oldest son and daughter in law are about to have a baby, the baby’s going to have an uncle that is younger than him! Eek!
I said EIGHT is enough!
You do-dos! That is 4 couples and their little kids. God you people are dumb.
where is the mother, are they all sitting on her? :L
So what if it was photoshopped.
It was. Someone tried to use black dots to remove red-eye. So what.
I’ve seen it done better, it makes the kid on the left look freaky, but it is photoshopped.
I have seldom seen so much beige all in 1 photo.
Wait… is that a really old picture of the Duggars?
The little girl in the middle on the bottom row totally has a “cheese!” face! And by that, I mean, she was actively saying the word cheese, syllables elongated for a few seconds at least.
I think the face of the little girl in the middle of the front row sums up this picture perfectly.
There are only 4 couples and 9 kids so that makes everyone the all american 2.5 child family, or something like that, don’t listen to me I failed math.
I think your comment wins as the funniest! lol That would explain how you counted 9 kids!
Doesn’t everyone have a photo like this? I fail to see what is so awkward about it. I mean, the clothes aren’t too out there – dated but not off the wall, it’s an extended family photo so yes, there are a lot of people but they all seem to be looking in roughly the same direction, no super odd expressions, setting is obviously a studio and it’s well framed.
this is overwhelming! i love how some of them are looking away from the camera and others aren’t
As a fellow snappy dresser I must say one of the first things that I noticed was how all four of the guys have perfectly knotted ties. Just Perfect. Someone knows a proper full windsor and is willing to flaunt it!
And the one buy wearing the sport coat with the flared collar underneath, John Travolta watch out!
Oh, boy! Another reality show!
Gawd, I feel dizzy
Keep your eye on the girl in the lower right: you can just tell she’s gonna be trouble…
Cute family photo!
Children of the Corn or what?!
The Duggers 1975!
Love how they coordinated their outfits in various shades of “drab.”
I laughed so hard at your comment,I fell off the chair!
Reminds me of the riddle: there are 3 cousins, two sisters, four brothers, and one uncle in the photo…how can that be?
I think it’s funny how they are being compared to the Duggar family. The Duggar family has one Mom and one Dad (not counting the oldest son and his wife) and 18 children with #19 on the way. This photo shows what could be four couples and only eight kids. That could be only two kids per couple. It’s awkward to compare them to the Duggars when they appear to be four families, not one.
Reminds of a puzzle I remember where three pieces of paper could be arranged two ways to show different numbers of elves. I never figured that out.
The Duggers, 70’s style!
Short sleeves and ties…..classy.
Man, check out the rebel lady on the right……wearing BLUE! Fight the power, girl!
“ok, everyone sit next to your favorite family member. Be sure to scrunch in and look happy…that’s it. One, two… whaddya mean you don’t have anyone to sit next to? No one will sit with you? Ok, just stand there on the left by yourself. No one will notice the awkwardness. I promise….and THREE. CLICK!!!”
Well done, Juls.
We have a family portrait with all but one of my 11 siblings. She hadn’t been born yet. Yes, in my family, there are 12 children, AND we all came from the same mother and father.
are you my sister? this pic reminded me of my family…we also have a family portrait with all of us except my little sister…she hadn’t been born yet!
I have 10 kids…8 have same parents, (my hubby and I)
and 2 are adopted…
It kind of looks like there were three different cameras and each section picked one to look at.
Does anyone else see the twins that married each others’ spouse’s twins?
Yeah, either this is photoshopped or two sets of twins married each other
I thought it was the twins who married the cousins, twice-removed ..
Yes! THAT’s awkward…
That depends on their proximity to the Mason-Dixon line.
Not seeing the twin thing here…then again, I didn’t know my aunts were twins until I was out of high school and my sister-in-law made a comment about how she couldn’t tell them apart. I was absolutely flabbergasted; and I didn’t believe my sister when she told me they were identical twins even.
It’s actually not uncommon for twins to marry twins.
Gotta love the ’70s, I can feel the itchy polyester from here…$10 says they’re all wearing bell bottoms…
This isn’t awkward…just four couples with two kids each. Too many people, but not awkward.
there’s something “village of the dammed” with the blond kid on the far left.
That’s EXACTLY what i thought!! Soooooooooo creepy!
I think this is cute… We have a family picture similar… Instead of four families its three and it includes all of my cousins as well between the familes… We were squished just as much 🙂 Bring on the memories…
by counting the adult male heads, I think it’s four families (siblings) who got their families together for one big happy portrait. I wonder how many of them look back on this photo and say “never again…” ?
I agree…it had to take hours to get all those kids to shut-up andsit still, let alone get all the ladies’ hair so perfectly coiffed.
As for the fear of balloon above, in my book I am just glad none of the dads dressed like a clown!
Aaagh! Clowns! Don’t even go there!!!
that made me 🙂
hahahaha, I have been enjoying how quiet my house is this morning with my meagre two children at their first day at school. Suckers. 😛 Muhahaha
You should find a better forum for your gloating. Unless your going for awkward, this isn’t the place.
I think she was attempting to contrast the size of her family with the size of the family in the picture humorously… I don’t know why you need to be mean to her.
And I think SHE was trying to be funny because maybe she is jealous
about how quiet nuttymoms house is? Why do you have to be so mean
to Wendy? 🙂
This is Wendy.
This is the point…Get it?
I love how all of their hair matches. They must all go to the same colorist, lol. Maybe they get a bulk discount.
maybe they were born that way.
It kind of grosses me out when there are too many people in a picture. Too many heads, too many eyes, too many teeth and too much hair…just too much!!
And you’re giving us too much information.
hahaha… PHEW your funny…
LOL…sorry…it’s just that…ah, forget it…
Denise you are so right. I never thought of it before, but the longer I look at it the sicker I feel. Move over balloons, I now have a new phobia
I’m terrified of balloons! Every seems to think its hilarious, I’ve never met any1 else who is scared of them too. Good. Haha. Now I don’t feel like a freak.
I’m scared of balloons, too. And now that Denise mentions it, I’m pretty unnerved by the multitude of fixed stares from this crowd as well.
However, I am not scared of those adorable chili bowl hair cuts on the boys in the middle. Too cute.
i’m scared of balloons too! one of my worst nightmares would be to have to exit a room for of balloons….
Ahh… group therapy.
LOL! I was thinking the same thing!
are you an only child? seems kinda nice to me that a 4 couples (obviously related somehow) and their kids had a picture taken…..Not even like it is just one giant family like the Duggers….Just regular people. Sheesh.
Is this in honor of the Duggars’ announcement that they’re expecting #19?
I know!! Don’t know what that announcement surprised me, but it did.
Maybe they are related to the Duggar family???
It’s a young Bill Gates and his extended family. You can almost see the “windows” in his eyes!
The Duggars: The Early Years
That’s exactly what I was going to say! Great minds think alike! : )
I count sixteen. Did I miss one?
I couldn’t even find 23 people let alone 23 families. I too only counted 16
Haha! The “see if you can find 23 families” is an exaggeration. It’s meant to be funny. Geesh people! Are you for reals?
pretty positive this is NOT Photoshopped … and I love how happy they all look (well except dude in the middle at the top) – great pic!
stop with the photoshopped comments already…I wish it were in the rules of commenting, anything that says “OMGZ its Photoshopped” will not be posted…don’t even try it…Yea it should be like that…People don’t quite understand the full scope of photoshop and it is super irritating. IT ISN’T JUST FOR FAKING PHOTOS…
but its so obvious that this one was photoshopped … not for humor but it seems for identity purposes
They’ve got nothing on the Duggars!
I agree…………amateurs! ;D
