Follow the yellow pitcher.
(submitted by Justin)
I think he looks very uncomfortable…
What decade is this? It could be the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s gone wrong.
It’s the 90’s. But that doesn’t make this any better.
I became mesmerized by his constant stare….
That pitcher is totally photoshopped.
All this picture is missing is an Oompa Loompa
I saw that horrid shirt material on the clearance table at Hancocks Fabrics…..90% off. And now you see why 😐
I think he DID have a hat, but he took it off. for proof: look at the hair at the top of his head.
also I see evidence that this is not his kitchen. he feels insecure here.
I found the suggestion that this is at Marnie’s house funny, but this is not her place either.
Definitely NOT Marnie’s pad – wayyyy too messy for that. Nothing appears “regulation size” and she would not approve.
I think this is a recent photo. THat is Body Shop soap on the sink isn’t it? So now I am really piqued. What would someone be doing in that outfit now? Ever, really?
Bath and Body Works. Still though, you make great points.
Donny Osmunds socks would look great with this outfit!
What is sitting underneath the banana holder?
So he is the person who buys the “banana holder/hanger” for his counter.
Hey, don’t knock the “banana tree” until you try it. It’s just like cutting them down yourself.
Also, I didn’t notice it in the picture initially so at first I thought your comment was a really bad double entendre….
Although Richard’s debut night at the lounge didn’t go over as well as he’d liked, he was glad to know he had a pitcher of sambuca and children’s Tylenol waiting back at home.
Gahahahaha Children’s Tylenol! So sad but true
Oh Uncle Paul.
This man has got to be a college professor.
Optometrist actually…….yes really, and in fact he’s quite successful. Gonna have to tease him about this next time I see him and ask him what that outfit was for.
Anyone ever see the show “SuperJail”? Yeah…its the Warden after the time cops got him…;P
The Mad Hatter in his later years
My…ain’t he a dandy!
I was thinking something like Bill Nye the science guy, but in a flashy suit. OH it’s Bill Nye before a date. 🙂
The party invite said 7 for 7:30… hmm maybe I put the wrong date on it….
This looks like a photo Diane Arbus might have taken. By the way, I love hcw80.
I’m thinking mid 80s? Wide lapels and shoulder pads? And for the fabric on that shirt, I have a photo album covered in that exact print and trim from 1986.
He reminds me of Arte Johnson. Worse yet, my best friend has the same yellow coffee mugs the man has in his cabinet, and my mother has a set of the blue hexagonal glasses on the shelf above it. Now *I* feel awkward.
Posing for this photo made him late, for a very important date!
that shirt is AMAZING! It looks like some wall paper I’ve seen somewhere…..
Agreed. I love the shirt. Tha guy’s got style. Or something resembling it.
Granny spent the weekend making it from an old tablecloth. The jaunty hankie? It came from a set of napkins she found on sale at K-Mart.
no, no, no!
Very creepy resemblance to the rabbit…………
I must admit…I watched the pitcher.
Expecting it to move.
Willie Wonka’s weird Uncle Lenny
OMG…I just noticed I have those same kitchen cabinets, complete with those lovely, vintage pulls….and the BBW soap on the sink. Groan.
Do you have the same strange man in your kitchen, too?
Of course you do. It’s your house.
but do you have that yellow pitcher and mugs? it completes it all so nicely!
I’m getting a “Tom Petty from Don’t Come Around Here No More” music video… creepy.
I thought about Tom Petty, too!
I’ll trade you – I keep getting Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit”…!
ITS WILLY WONKA
The Mad Hatter with no hat?
Either Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or the Mad Hatter. Or a cross between the two.
What … no top hat? That’s no way to dress for an unbirthday party.
Dad’s gonna have a blast at prom!
I can’t decide what’s more awkward, his expression or his wardrobe.
Nice to see you again Monsignor, but just because it’s prom doesn’t mean you need a bow tie.
Party animal. I bet’cha his tie has a spin mechanism. Whirrrr!
On Fridays we let him dress himself…
Well, we now know what happened to Willie Wonka after retirement!!
OMG good one.
honey! I didn’t know you would be home so soon! This suit isn’t mine, I swear!
he does look like the mad hatter (without the hat)
He looks nervous, scared, and guilty.
I agree, Cam. Perhaps Marnie caught him using the non-regulation size yellow pitcher and has the photo to prove it? I have the same ugly yellow pitcher in my cabinet. It’s my margarita pitcher!
My mom had this same yellow pitcher, and I took it when I moved into my first apartment. 6 years later, I use it to get water for my dogs. However, I will say that I followed in the footsteps and have the updated Tupperware pitcher!
Yes, that’s it! Like he just got caught. He didn’t mean for his wife to catch him in that outfit, going to wherever it is that people who wear that type of clothing go!
wife? you mean mom.
They go to Roller Disco!
Harold had just recieved the final divorce decree in the mail. He donned his wedding tuxedo and made himself a plastic pitcher of maragitas. He was not sure if he felt shock, relief, or embarrassment when his neighbor Flo stopped by to ask if he needed some company that night. He simply opened the cabinet, took out another colbalt blue goblet and placed it in her freshly manicured hand.
hcw80, That has got to be the most hilarious comment I have ever seen here. I never leave a comment but felt I had to for that!
Agreed — hilarious! The poor man just looks so overwhelmed, somehow.
WIN…hands down. Way to incorporate all the awkward aspects of the image.
All gussied up for flo he’ll show her he’s an excellent, excellent driver
Flo is a very lucky woman indeed.
lol, My mom has that pitcher
Mine too – but hers is avacado green! LOL
My parents also might still have a Tupperware one the same style, but in beige plastic.
I thought the same thing! Only ours was dark brown.
Is he drinking the Kool-Aid?
Careful Justin you’re gunna be written out of the will. At the very least he’s gunna put out a hit on you for subbing his picture.
Since he dressed up so nice for this photo-op, couldn’t they at LEAST have cleaned off the counter and shut the cupboard door? Sheesh!
‘couldn’t they have at LEAST cleaned off the counter’ OMG you’re kidding, right? I’d never let you in my house if you’re this critical! Wow. There’s a spoon, a tea jug, a can and a towel. Obviously, they were getting ready to go somewhere and were in a hurry. I’m guessing your kitchen is spotless? This one looks pretty dang clean to me.
Have you never just snapped a picture w/out cleaning up for it? Most all of my pics are like that, unposed.
Plus, his DD said that he didn’t want to have his picture taken, so I’m sure whoever took the pic was just getting it where they could, and didn’t really care if there were a FEW things on the counter. Not like there were roaches crawling all over it or anything.
I wondered if he knew that pretty much everything in the picture (including the soda can) matched his outfit other than the pitcher and the mugs in the cupboard.
but my eyes immediately went to the pitcher and the mugs. poor guy–all that time getting dressed, and i notice the kitchenware.
Isn’t this a scene from Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me? Where is the log lady?
