This father isn’t going to let anything spoil his moment.

The awkward girl splashing in the photo looks just like me!
…I think I’ve swum in that lake before
“I know she can’t swim. Now, just calmly handover that camera.”
This looks a lot like where i go on VC Its called Loon Lake New york
This looks like montclair VA?
Welcome to Camp Crystal Lake. Jason Voorhees was never a strong swimmer…
Hilarious! Since he’s obviously standing up, it looks like she’s drowning in 3 feet of water. Or maybe she’s just real high-maintenance and can’t have him be the center of attention for five seconds.
What you CAN’T see in this picture is the dolphin she is riding.
She would always do ANYTHING for attention. Crying, Screaming, Drowning… when WOULD she grow up?!
He has a look of self satisfaction on his face that suggest he had something to do with her “fall”.
so i think that mom, DAD, and their kid were on vacation. dad was like ‘aww, junior/princess is taking a picture.. thats my camera, but whatevs..’.
mom is just awkward because she didn’t really pay attention to what was going on and decided to jump off the platform, slipped a little once landing, and just didn’t bother staying aware of her facial expression.
thank you for figuring it out
I know this is an old thread, but my brother got me this card for my birthday because the awkward girl splashing in the background looks just like me!
Ha really? I have the card too, cause hey… I’m on it :p
Oh and by the way Operation Wedding thread is not funny. I don’t know where you get your humor Tamara but that sucked.
you cant even see the rope he used to yank her off the platform…………goodjob!!!!!!!!!!
I would like you to me my wife Grace, oh look, here she comes now.
DADUM DADUM DADUM DADUM DADUM…….JAWS!!!!!!
Before Kim revealed this was Ontario I was thinking Lake Nicaragua with it’s bull shark infestation.
“Cool guys don’t look at explosions…”
Exactly what I was thinking
She just surfaced before being dragged under for the last time, and he’s looking forward to the insurance money.
Oh my gosh i think this is right next to the cabin my auntie and uncle own! :]
This is in Ontario, Canada
So Kim, please tell us the story…did she drown? Is she just splashing to cool off? Does Sasquatch have her by the ankles? Pretty please, tell us.
Hehehe but it’s just too much fun to watch everyone guess
Yeah, he’s got it going on. She can wait!
This man understands the importance of guarding his belly button from the harmful rays of the sun! His wife in the background understands the importance of splashing water in her own face.
The caption is a reference to Bo Derek in the movie 10.
She comes out of the water slowly and with self assurance, appearing to be the perfect female specimen, or a quote 10 unquote.
And now you know! (smiles, tooth PING!)
Ten? How about 3.5?
Wow, the Romanian judges were pretty harsh on her, Steve…
Alright, what happened to the last post about the “putting on a happy face” with the parents and the brand new baby? Who got offended and had that taken off?
Hey, I think we’re all forgetting about the third person in this unfolding drama, the photographer, who is looking right at the drowning woman, and . . . taking a picture.
It’s OK, Dude…she can handle that gator all by herself. Just keep looking at the camera.
Yea, you know how creepy those underwater spiders are.
I only give her a “6″
yeah, too much splash
I don’t see the humor in this. People splash in water. At least on Earth. And she’s splashing herself in shallow water (she’s obviously standing) and she’s so far behind him he doesn’t have anything to do with her SPLASHING HERSELF.
Tamara: BOOOOOOOO! you have no sense of humor whatsoever. What a killjoy.
And fyi, she clearly is not standing, she just fell from the platform. You can see the splash from her legs behind her.
So what if she jumped, fell, or the water isn’t shallow. She’s in a swimsuit in a lake going off a dock. Very ordinary. Not funny.
You have no imagination.
true, jumping off a dock in a lake is ordinary, but clearly it’s the juxtaposition of the expressions/scenarios that’s funny. why are you on this site again?
It’s the Operation Wedding thread I’m not visiting again so if people want to leave mean spirited comments for me there then that’s fine. I promise I won’t be reading them. But let’s make nice from hear on out please. Lots of people post opinions here that express they don’t think the photo is funny nor awkward. And the truth is, I think most of them are (especially the comments), but not this one.
I’ll stop at nothing to show you my fading farmer’s tan!
Maybe a spider just touched her leg under the water…..*shudder*
That’s it, Honey! Just keeping moving those arms!
“Dad, help me!”
“Just a minute honey, you know Dad is working it right now.”
i like his bangs
oh my gosh POLIO!!!!
He will stop at nothing to have his moment in the sun.
Ed had his eye on the cooler full of cold beer and the grill full of hot brats. After 30 years of marriage he had learned to just turn a deaf ear to Margie’s constant nagging. He was unaware that the loud, “ED! ED! ED!” in the distance was a call for help. He just thought she was going to harangue him about getting sand of the beach towel…again.
Not THAT’s funny! hahahahaha
Awesome! You a writer?
Second grade teacher…pray for me.
Oh, that will warp you. I taught second grade for 18 years before they let me pass!
I’d say his concern for his wife is underwhelming.
Maybe it’s his mother-in-law, in which case, not so awkward (hahaha)
Weights tied to feet? $50.00. Self-timing camera? $250.00. “Vacation” at the lake? $750.00. Walking away with cocky self-assurance? Priceless.
This instantly made me think of that short story by Stephen King with the platform in the lake.
not the first thing to come to mind, but I totally see what you mean.
It was in creepshow 2 right?
Was that the one with the creeping algae-looking stuff?
i think it’s the one with the stuff floating on the surface of the water that looks like gasoline or oil and sucks the people under water through the cracks in the wooden platform (although it does that is beyong me)
well, meant “HOW it does that”, but oh well, you got me, right?
Yup, sure did =) That’s the one I was thinking of, but it’s been a while and I couldn’t remember exactly what kinda ooze was on top of the water.
that is so what i was thinking also…and it was like an oil slick….I read it while i was little and was traumatized forever by it…but anytime I mentioned it to anyone they just looked at me like i had been smoking something….lol good to hear im not going crazy!!!
Yeah. But I think it was Ray Bradbury. Not Stephen King.
Nope, it was Stephen King. The Raft, published in Skeleton Crew.
OMG – me too! Good catch JC. That was a freaky story.
I was kind of thinking of the girl swimming in the opening scene of Jaws. THAT freaked me out for years…even swimming in fresh water Lake Michigan. Any time that I felt something odd with my feet I instantly became like Jesus.
definitely! my thoughts exactly
I read it years ago and still can’t swim to a platform without thinking about it!
His concern for his wife is overwhelming.
Yes, because he’s had plenty of time to react…. He’s actually Peter Parker. His senses are very hightened, and he realized she was in trouble before the splash of water even went into the air.
I don’t understand this one. I’m pretty sure the girl just jumped in or is standing and splashing. WOW…how awkward.
Kev.. she’s been gripped by a gator going into a death roll.
OMG…that’s killer funny!
