    LOL! that is so scary!

  2. Al Castro says:

    Why is aunt Telcia hiding? I can see part of her face and one eye, directly below
    the mother with the baby. It appear everyone on the couch is sitting on top of her.

  3. JofOH says:

    Thanks for the person who posted the link to the other photos that came just before this shot. This is the funniest thing I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. Poor Aunt Telcia. The name Telcia means guardian or protector, but apparently meant something else when this photo was taken.

  4. Mark says:

    hahaha very nice photo ,take me 20 sec to find where is secret eye 🙂

    • Jock-o says:

      My God! I just jumped in my chair when I found the eye. What the hell is going on here? I’m really scared.

  5. Ken says:

    last time we saw her she was sleeping on the fold out

  6. Jay says:

    LOL. Okay, it seriously took me like 15 minutes to find out why this photo was submitted, it just looked like a happy family smiling at the camera. Then BAM I saw the aunt and jumped like 6 feet. Ahaha

  7. Pipergirl says:

    I still want to know why the little boy is rocking a pinstripe suit.

  8. Nani says:

    This looks like: “Okay, everyone, Aunt Telcia won’t WAKE UP for the family photo, so we’re going to sit on her, /make/ her wake up, AND take the photo! :D”

  9. Hazel says:

    OK so whilst I find this photo quite funny my question is why on earth this woman sat on her sister’s head?

  10. Sera Anne says:

    Whoa it took me 5 minutes to figure out what i was missing out on. Then I see her face poking out of couch and jump out of my chair.

    • Jodi says:

      Oh my! I did the same thing. I’m thinking, this is is such a nice family photo, why is it on here? And then AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! So funny!

  11. James says:

    HAHHA this creeped me out

  12. Hannah says:

    Really is the photo
    worth fighting over?

  13. people says:

    wow i loved thaaaat yyyou

  14. Elaine says:

    There’s always one member of the family that’s a little camera-shy. Maybe because she only has one eye.

  15. thats definetly not photo shopped its so stinking funny 🙂

  16. melissa says:

    who cares if its photoshopped, its FUNNY 🙂

  17. Rac1019 says:

    Who gives a crap if it is or isn’t photoshopped. It’s just someone being funny. Just laugh and go on. Can’t people just enjoy a laugh without analyzing everything? Geez people life is short lighten up.

  18. dfas says:

    i don’t get what’s awkward about this photo. i mean there’s absolutely nothing awkward about this photo.

  19. Tammy says:

    Well, I was there, and this photo was definitely not photoshopped. The photographer (Nicole) shared the pictures leading up to this picture in earlier comments several months ago. People who want to think it’s photoshopped (whether “professional” or not) will think what they want, but I was there the day this picture was taken and know the story behind it!

    • Attorney says:

      Thanks for the first hand account Tammy. I would have assumed it was shopped.


    • Nani says:

      I’d definitely love to know the story too! I can imagine what it would be if it were my family, but first hand accounts are so much better 😀

      • Nicole says:

        It is not a very exciting story. It was Easter Sunday and my sister Telcia was trying to take a nap on the couch. My other sister wanted a picture with her family (and Telcia was living with them at the time). Telcia didn’t want to sit up so they just piled on top of Telcia. That’s just how we roll in our family I guess. 🙂

  20. Little Hellkat says:

    gives new meaning to the term ‘facesitting’.

  21. gary mcgarster says:

    who cut the cheese?

  22. Rosie says:

    I can’t believe people think this is photo shopped because you can’t see her legs. Hello, obviously everyone is sitting on her and she’s probably taller than a loveseat couch which this isn’t. Which would mean that her legs must be past the Dad’s butt which didn’t make it in the picture.

  23. kate says:

    It’s not a photoshop… Pay closer attention

  24. amber says:

    freaked me OUT!!! her facial expression!!!!!

  25. ashman says:

    one of the funniest photos I’ve ever seen on this site

  26. Pipergirl says:

    All this time later, I still want to know why the little boy’s rocking a pinstripe suit.

  27. greebo says:

    love the set up for the finished pic. i bet the aunt was a tad upset to say the least lol

  28. Sidney says:

    So many comments that the flickr link is buried. Follow this to see the photo and the set up.


    Not photoshopped. Hilariously all natural.

  29. Peter says:

    OK, I’m one that totally had to look for awhile to get this…

  30. treva says:

    who cares if its photoshopped, the idea of it is still friggin hilarious!

  31. sc says:

    This is spooky–I’m actually glad someone said Photoshop because that hadn’t occurred to me yet. (Okay–I’m a little slow on the uptake!) Reminds me of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane!

  32. Piss says:

    Omg amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. MissSea says:

    Finally noticed what was weird. Otherwise, I thought it was a lovely family picture! Ha!

  34. Melissa says:

    This pic did nothing but freak me out. Weird sense of humor.

    • Lainey says:

      I agree. It’s do weird and creepy

    • JP says:

      yup, freaked me out, too. if she were smiling from under there, it would have been a bit more redeeming. LOL. weird, even still. but just SLIGHTLY better with a smile instead of a vein popping out of her forehead & that INTENSE one-eyed glare. LOL.

  35. stephanie mcclelland says:

    That is Aunt Telcia, there is a vein popping out from her forehead from being squeezed.

  36. polar bear hero says:

    If the whole family was piled on top of this lady, there is no way they could get those kids to not laugh! I’ve tried setting up gag shots like that with the kids and it’s a lot easier to Photoshop (or more correctly Photoshop Elements -shop) the gag.

    But the original poster missed the point-the charm of the photo. No matter how it was accomplished (pillows, photo-manipulation or magic) it is the surprise that delights. The surprise is the point of the photo. You first register the rather generic boring family and only belatedly does your eye look lower and find that eye that should not be there. I can’t help but laugh every time I look at it!

    LOL Come to think of it, this family looks a tad too oblivious. What else is hidden in that family’s sofa-the bottom cushion does seem suspiciously high? Jimmy Hoffa? The neighbor’s dog who barked one night too many? The last family member who don’t bring Marney a regulation-sized casserole dish (with lid)?

    • Grammy says:

      I personally think that Marney stepped on a few toes this past Thanksgiving and was put in her place.

      • Kkristina11 says:

        omg who’s gives a s*** if it was photoshoped or not it was meant to be funny it served it’s purpose get over it there is even a lady in the above messages telling everyone she was there an it’s not photoshoped get a freaking life an move on!!!

  37. Teresa says:

    However it was done, it’s very funny and I love it!

  38. Jess says:

    Ha Ha this pic is hilarious! Who really gives a crap if its photo shopped, its piss funny!!!!! Also, if it was photo shopped, well done. I like it!

  39. Marilyn says:

    Is Aunt Telcia in a sleeping bag underneath them. She appears to have the same eye/ hair color (peaking out under mom’s hip). At first i didn’t get it . If it really is her ? “You’re such a good sport” and if not- great idea to post.

  40. Farah says:

    At first I had no idea what this picture was about. It took me a few minutes to get it, and then it totally freaked me out hahahahaha

  41. Ang says:

    I don’t think its photoshopped! Look how high they are all sitting on the “couch” plus, the ladys knee is up higher so technically her foot could be under her leg and you just cant see it.

    • catroast says:

      I agree. Too many people out there screaming “It’s ‘shopped!” and don’t have the mindset to grasp reality.

  42. Kultigin says:

    It is one of those pillows with picture of someone. You can see the flash on canvas.

  43. Skip says:

    Telcia looks freaked… like a kidnap victim.
    I don’t get off on that sort of thing but I love this photo…

  44. Amber says:

    Freaked me out.

  45. Natalie says:

    not going to lie.. totally freaked me out.

    • Debbie says:

      I know, at first I couldn’t see what was going on with this picture. Weird! LOL

      • Ulla says:

        Every time i show this website to someone, i always pause over this picture and wait. Every time, without fail, the person looking over my shoulder says: “what? nothings wrong with tha–what the heck?!”

        • Twilightfansunite says:

          haha! my mom litterly was like ‘ i don’t see anything wrong with that photo! They are making fun of—AHHH!’ haha.

  46. Yourmom says:

    Hilarious!! I just saw what was funny.

  47. Donna Lee says:

    Everytime I come back and look at this, I LOL… Love it!

  48. sailaway says:

    Guess who had beans for lunch.

  49. me me and me says:

    It looks like a white knee between and under the guy.

    • bp says:

      ….man I missed it all. : D

    • AshiMoo says:

      I don’t think thats her knee. a) its too far back, unless shes super tall. And if she was really tall, wheres the end of her leg? and b) Its most likely the end of the green cushion they’re all sitting on, coming out of the pillowcase. (see the other end above where her head is).

  50. jimmy says:

    It is an obvious photo shop. Where is the rest of the lady’s leg???? PHOTOSHOPPED!
