    • Mel says:

      I about choked on my own saliva when I saw that! (Which, when you think about it, is WAY better than choking on someone ELSE’S saliva. But I digress…)

  17. Nikki says:

    Haha….I had to look at this twice in order to catch it…I first thought there was nothing wrong with it, actually thought it was a nice picture….then I noticed the action going on in the back lol Nothing a little photo shop can’t fix!

  18. Lori says:

    It’s a tad blurry but it looks like the family Golden Retriever could use a vet visit to check his eyes out….

    • Denise says:

      Now THAT’s funny πŸ™‚ This pics’ just not that funny to me because the photographer clearly knew they were back there. There’s no reason to frame the shot that way otherwise. That’s a subtlety that ruins it for me. Just my little opinion.

  45. Pip says:

    It’s one of those photo’s where nothing you can say about it is funnier than the photo itself.

  46. paris says:

    ah!!! i didn’t see it for a while
    wow thats hilarious !!! XD

  47. jomolungma says:

    Awww, it is love!

  48. cg says:

    I’ll say!
    So love the fact that the reflection doubles the pleasure.

  49. Michele says:

    took me a while to see that.

  50. sassafrass says:
