    Sitting Man: “What did you say to me?!?”
    Standing Man: ” I said cut your damn hair if you want to be in our family!”

    I swear I didn’t fart. Why does everyone always blame me? We all ate the burritos.

  5. Jliloy says:

    So which one of you is actually my father?

  6. joey_hv says:

    “I’m Mac, and I’m PC”

  7. Anne-Liis says:

    This is so embarrassing…but I know this family.
    The woman used to be my school principle. And the man with the mustache was her husband but they’re divorced now

    • Sarah says:

      No, you don’t know this family. She was never a school principal and they did not get divorced. Must just resemble people you know.

  8. BSE says:

    Whoa, whoa! Why is everyone ganging up on the Mullet? What did he ever do?

  9. LisaB says:

    My theory: I think mullet-man is the photographer and he is trying to tell “Dad” how he wants him to pose, but Dad doesn’t want to do it. An assistant or someone else accidentally (or maybe on purpose) snapped the photo when mullet-man photographer was in it.

    Has no one thought that the two men may be the new partners and the woman the ex!!!! we do live in a modern age after all…. The kid could be giving daggers coz he’s the one who took her daddy away!!! ahhhh

  11. Alekx says:

    The way the guy on the left is positioned looks incredibly uncomfortable…

  12. devans00 says:

    Who the heck though it’d be a great idea to have a portrait with no one looking at the camera? I wonder if they had a do over.

  13. Sara says:

    This photo is just creepy.

  14. gary says:

    this is the most awkward family photo ever. there is no longer a need for this blog as no subsequent family photo posted will ever achieve this level of awkwardness.

  15. guy says:

    this is cheech’s family?

  16. You Know Who says:

    I would be pissed too if I showed up and my wife’s other husband was there!!!!

  17. cjax says:

    What I don’t understand is, that in order for someone to submit this photo, doesn’t it mean they actually own a copy of the picture…so likely someone, somewhere purchased it as part of their portrait package? Which would then imply that this was actually one of the least awkard pictures taken that day?

  18. TravisT says:

    Whatchu talking ’bout Willis?

  19. CarrieM says:

    It’s awkward enough that there’s an extra man in this family. So why have them all stare at each other? Why not just hand men weapons while you’re at it?

  20. Keith says:

    Let’s Start The Family Feud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Rrobert says:

    My daughter and I don’t think you should be in this picture after all you are only the lodger.

  22. Kim says:

    I’m laughing one of those laughs that just keep coming and get more hysterical as more time passes..this is one of the most insanely funny pictures I’ve ever seen!! I do hope that the photographer has found work elsewhere…poor family….lmao

  23. rog says:

    mullet is scary but I bet on the german-looking guy

  24. blucat says:

    Why are the two men staring at each other when it should be one of the men and the woman?

  25. Doug says:

    Susan Sarandon looks lovely in this picture, but what is she doing with these weirdos? 😉

  26. Bastet11 says:

    You all have got it all wrong..the mullet dude is actually the dad/husband and the top guy is the accountant who just wanted to part of the family shoot.

  27. Paul says:

    I’m only going to show you how to sit properly in this chair one more time……..otherwise the woman and kids are MINE.

  28. emm says:

    the backstory here HAS to involve a will…

  29. virtualspaniel says:

    Hmm, I think the two guys have just found each other, hence the ‘rabbit in the headlights’ look, child has noticed this, mother blissfully unaware. I would love to see what happened straight after this shot…….

  30. patkerash says:

    This is a classic case of when instructions go wrong… “ok don’t look at the camera”

  31. betheremnant says:

    it looks as though a random mullet madness man used the fact that he was wearing a suit and tie and slipped right into a family photo that he doesn’t belong in…If I was at the mall and I was THIS dressed to impress…(not to mention the ‘business up front party in the back’ aka mullet), I’d do the SAME thing…I’d make my way into the closest photo shoot…just look at the shock. The mom is the only one with a sense of humor…

  32. liz says:

    A great “Who’s your daddy” photo-op

  33. GasMoney says:

    When the camera guy wants in on the family photo… dad’s about to punch him, mom’s smiling because she doesn’t want things to erupt, child has just developed a sense of what is awkward and realised it was coming from that man.

  34. Kate says:

    “AND the Johnson family! Greg, Stacy, Linda and Manuel. Ready for action!”

    • sk says:

      My thoughts exactly…glad I read thru before restating obvious.

      Just missing that one cousin for the end spot. You know…the one that never gets any answers right and never gets to go up to the podium.


  35. Harvin says:

    Ginny had had enough by that point and made up her mind to move in with the Weasleys. After the photo shoot, of course.

  36. frydo says:

    i’m agreeing with the step-dad theory. looks like only mom enjoys mr. mullet’s company. daughters glare says “You’re not my REAL dad!”

  37. Degringolade says:

    I just want to say that Patrick Swayze had one of the greatest mullets of all time.

  38. rose says:

    The attorney with the mullet is so dedicated, proving his clients are represented and are entitled to a retake if they are unhappy with the results!

  39. Patricia says:

    OK, yes, so far my pick for Superest Awkward photo. Looks like a fight broke out about 15 seconds after this photo was taken – bloodshed, hair pulling, mustache tweaking, crying – and I’m betting it was a quiet ride home in the car, whoever’s home they went to.

  40. Rusted Sun says:

    I’m really confused by this photo.

  41. m says:

    obviously, the ex is off to the right… they are all looking at mullet stepdad and smiling to hide their whispered assurance, ” It’s ok… I know he’s got a compound bow, but Aunt Marnie said he had to be here for the photo shoot… if we didn’t let him in, she’d make us bring ALL the desserts and she’d find the worst recipes to follow… now just say turtle!”

  42. dameDonna says:

    I’m voting on the girl. She looks PISSED!

  43. Staci says:

    “Here’s a story of an awkward family, in a picture that no one can figure out.”

  44. Terri Lackey McMichael says:


  45. Steve says:

    why are the other three, all staring at that dude on the left side of the pic? surely someone knows the real story here???

    • S says:

      With his pinky ring on, he’s a car dealer that’s just told them that he’s sorry, but their 6 month old Kia does indeed qualify as a Clunker for the sale. Mom, she doesn’t care……..she’s in love!

    • Anana says:

      I’m thinking he’s the ex-husband or someone’s baby-daddy.
      Agreed, he DOES look like a car salesman 😉

  46. Henry says:

    Reminds me of a Family Feud (Richard Dawson-era) set-up gone wrong.
