    “This Thanksgiving is gonna be bitchin! So let’s turn up the Molly Hatchet , crack open another Tab, and back up ’cause I’m cookin’ this year!!”

    Quick! Call FOX NEWS! It’s Jesus and a disciple!

  6. Adrienne says:

    they were def hot in the 80’s and probably in a bad garage band

  7. s says:

    friends dont let friends baste drunk

  8. ashclan says:

    The younger guy in the back looks like the youngest Jonas brother. Darned if I know his name though.

  9. elizabeth says:

    I love reading all the comments on this particular photo…especially because as I was scrolling through all the awkward family photos and came across this one, I realized I’m seeing family. Really…I could provide names and addresses on these two cause they are related to me. Definitely the 80’s and they were hotties then with all my friends…and are wonderful family men today. Proud to admit it 🙂

    (muttering):”Stupid Mom always lets stupid Tony baste the stupid turkey. As soon as I get this stupid jai-alai mitt off, I’m gonna baste him….)

  13. Ryan says:

    Makes me proud to be an Angels fan!!!

  14. Boulder_BigDog says:

    THAT’S ELI MANNING!!!!!!!!!!

  15. nosescreenname says:

    At least the hair looks clean and brushed. How about some cred for personal hygiene? Although, I think the guy in the back is chewing tobacco. He’s about to spit on the turkey.

  16. BG says:

    So this is what happens when Adrian Zmed and The Bee Gees get together for Thanksgiving? It’s 1982 all over again!

  17. Staceyb says:

    The one in the front looks a bit like Richard Gere.

  18. Steph says:

    I think the no shirt under the 3/4 length sleeve jacket, paired with the gold necklace is the perfect tribute to this Purtian born holiday.

  19. Happy Place says:

    im wierdly turned on.

  20. Iwasa80sgirl says:

    Oh yeah! I dated guys in high school that looked and dressed just like this. Not only were the belly shirts popular with straight girls, but also with the gay guys! Nothing sexier than dualing zippers tempting you to pull both down…oh the way we used to do it!

  21. JennyLou says:

    God help me but there IS something attractive about these two. Somewhere by mother is slapping herself in the forehead…Oh, and I totally agree about the camaro, WITH the bandana hanging from the rearview mirror.

  22. Gina says:

    I don’t know why, but I started giggling like a schoolgirl when I saw this picture. Guess I’m a sucker for a fella with feathered hair.

  23. Currer Bell says:

    That is one HOT savior.

  24. Tim says:

    The boys were so excited! They just couldn’t wait to show Aunt Marney they brought the regulation turkey baster.

  25. Jim says:

    Actually, the one in the front looks like a young Bob Ross….”let’s paint some happy little trees right here”

  26. Rebekah says:

    …and the other to Gibb brothers, having no discernible singing talent, were demoted to “cooks” on the BeeGees final tour

  27. Patrick says:

    I’m glad someone had the gumption to admit there’s something sexy about these two!! That little bit of visible belly… wow!!

    • Dave says:

      Gotta agree, Patrick. The only disturbing part of this pic is that the cupboard door is ajar. Damn my OCD!

      • makeup*your*mind says:

        So glad to know I’m not the only one who noticed the open cabinet doors! It’s disturbing. I mean, how can anyone take a picture with all that chaos in the background? The one on the left initially overshadowed the one directly above the stove, but I guess I can see how the photographer might have missed that one, thinking it didn’t make it into the frame. But seriously, how hard would it have been to say, “Hey, hold on a minute. You want push that cabinet door closed before I snap the picture! Yeah, the one RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!”

  28. Susan says:

    Now why would you wear an oven mitt but not cover up very vulerable (and flammable) belly hair???

  29. Just my opinion says:

    I’m oddly attracted…

  30. NuttyMom says:

    Not awkward. That hair was very popular as was the jersey pop top. I don’t know why guys wore them so short but they did. They were probably really popular with the girls. And they are helping in the kitchen–Did Mom take a photo to remember the moment?

  31. Michelle says:

    Give it a little time & those hair cuts will be back in style..for those that keep rockin’ that look..Don’t worry you will once again fit in with the crowd…Just keep on rockin’…

    P.S in the 80’s these guys were hot..sorry, but they r pretty hot..

  32. Joanne says:

    See Mom-we did help you with Thanksgiving dinner-once in 1980! We have a picture to prove it!

  33. mel says:

    I’m sorry, but the only thing that’s truly awkward here to me is the fact that it’s MEN cooking. They were in style back in the day so if you want to call that awkward you might as well just say 70’s and 80’s rule awkward and leave it at that.

  34. dsto says:

    Thanksgiving at the “Winger” household

  35. Chris says:

    I know without any doubt there is a camero parked outside their house.

  36. magillicuddy says:

    I love laughing out loud at work in the morning… this site just makes my day…

  37. Donna says:

    Don’t know why – but I’m thinkin’ Saturday Night Fever.

  38. glasstabletop says:

    Is that Shaggy?

  39. Rod says:

    does anyone else think that if the camera pointed a little lower, brown sweater’s belly might be showing too? look at how high those pockets are!

    • Anon says:

      Take the guy in the front, dress him in the cutoff shirt worn by the guy in the back, and you have the guy that I dated in 1988. That really brings back some memories….

  40. Bea says:

    Ricky and Joey get caught red handed by little sister Susie spiking the turkey with Dad’s Jeagermeister….

    Notice the devilish grins….

  41. Connie says:

    My aunt sports that same haircut today.

  42. halrod says:

    does that turkey look raw, or what?

    • prunesquallor says:

      I was thinking that – I think they are basting a bit early. They might want to leave it for another half hour or so.

  43. grace says:

    His secret ingredient belly button lint

  44. Dank says:

    Jersey Boy needs to wear an apron; that uncovered belly is just begging for a hot splatter of food to jump and ruin his Thanksgiving.

  45. aSunkee says:

    He looks like Sookie’s brother from “True Blood”

  46. Karen says:

    The one isn the front looks like one of the BeeGees!

  47. Etraking says:

    The combination of those pears and the exposed hairy skin of the two gentlemen would have made me pass on the turkey they were making.

  48. Rowdy says:

    Yep. They’re hot. There, I said it. Not proud of it, but there it is. And what the heck…he’s willing to try to cook a turkey. Bonus points! Actually, the guy in front looks a little like Richard Gere around the eyes.

    • Jak says:

      agree completely. Though ya know Marnie would want hair nets. Maybe belly nets…

      • DM says:

        agree totally! The front guy is a looker!

      • cooks4many says:

        I was just about to link those 2 (photo & letter) and send out to my family whose coming for Thanksgiving this year. TOO FUNNY!

      • CB says:

        lol…..belly nets cracked me up….and yes, they’re definitely not Marnie approved. They don’t look old enough to qualify for participation on an adult level, so they certainly wouldn’t be allowed to bast the turkey… least that younger guy next to the official baster–but maybe that’s why he’s only supervising.

    • Kim says:

      Thank you, Rowdy, for putting that out there. Here I was feeling like I was the only one who found them attractive. I was worried there was something wrong with me, lol. I’m sure by now they’ve had hair cuts and lost the belly shirts. The front guy does look a bit like Richard Gere and I feel like I know the guy in the back.

    • Tink says:

      And thank you for saying it. Yep, hot.

  49. jenniep says:

    anyone else thinking “more cowbell”with that belly shirt????
