    This…is just akward…not the toga’s….the gazing…..

    to me kid looks like wtf xD

  2. binkymae says:

    Good thing the boy didn’t have a shoulder poof thingy. That would have looked so feminine.
    This reminds me of the clothing on some strange planet in a Star Trek episode.

  3. Boppie says:

    It looks like they’re tied together at the shoulder…

  4. Lisa says:

    Wow. I just…


    This just definitely win the Awkward of the Year Award.

  5. Lori says:

    i agree with kate.. lol i hope you’re wedding pics were NOT artistic lol!

  6. Kate says:

    Lea — what did your MIL & SIL wear to your wedding?!?!?

  7. Stepper says:


    Step 1. Print out multiple copies of this picture (just print enough so there is one handy)
    Step 2. Wait for you MIL’s next great idea
    Step 3. Calmy pull out a copy of the picture and show it to her
    Step 4. Stay quiet and wait for her to realize how wrong she is
    Step 5. (optional, only if she tries to justify the picture). Throw the picture at her
    Step 6. Do what ever you think is best.

    p.s. I am greatful my MIL is not as artistic as Lea’s MIL.

  8. Mary says:

    Holy moly….this one is just….wow…awkward!!

  9. ellen says:

    omg so weird!

  10. Amanda says:

    Wow… What an uncomfortable picture. Seriously.

  11. dragonjay says:

    Congratulations Lea! That was easily the most awkward photo that I’ve ever seen on this site!

  12. Jan says:

    Most. Awkward. Photo. EVER!

  13. Bearkitten Sundeen says:

    While many of the pics on this site are NOT awkward in the least, this is the definition of awkward. Good Submission.

  14. steena says:

    AHHHHH. so creepy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. steena says:

    I agree with Erin. I’m going considerably out of my way to comment upon this awkwardness. And frankly, I’m semi-afraid…

  16. Lea says:

    I submitted this photo. Unfortunately there really isn’t a story about this photo. It is (left to right) my mother-in-law, my husband, and my sister-in-law. My MIL thought she was being “artistic”. I am pretty sure that they are all wearing separate sheets, and judging from my husband’s age in this pic it was take somewhere around the very early ’90s.

    • Skip says:

      Thanks for the background! I hope your husband wasn’t *too* scarred by the experience. . .

      • CC says:

        Hopefully, your mother-in-law has given up any and all artistic endeavors. Glad to hear that your husband has was not too scathed by the experience!

    My Two Moms and Me
    Now Available In Pink Sheets.

  18. Patti says:

    Looks like same sex couple with their son, which is fine, but why take a photograph wrapped in bedsheets? very awkward

  19. Mike says:

    There have been lots of funny and weird photos, but this is damned awkward. For me anyway, the kid seems OK with it.

  20. shauna f says:

    Why? Why would someone even take a picture like this? Who are the women and what relationship do they have with the boy. This is just wierd..perhaps one of the weirdest photos I have seen here…except for the old picture of the guy in the tree..both proffessionally done too so each family was committed to this weirdness! I’m normal YaY!

  21. Erin says:

    This photo makes me uncomfortable.

  22. Betsy says:

    The sheets are definitely weird as heck, but what really puts this one over the top is the way they’re gazing at each other. Yow.

  23. Pipergirl says:

    They were white togas, but someone left a red sock in the washing basket.

  24. Sarah says:

    what. in. the. world.

  25. Deb says:

    Adoptive mother and birth mother?
    Really stretching to find a reason for this wierd one.

    • Franci1969 says:

      I’ll second that.
      I don’t see the age-gap between the two women wide enough to make the sitting one the mother of the younger one, and if there is, than the boy is too young to be the real kid of the sitting woman.
      Also, do they wear the same toga ?

      This picture rings a miriad of questions in everyone’s head. This picture is everything what this website is about.

  26. carol says:

    It was almost bedtime anyway…

  27. dsto says:

    It’s a new Fraternity..Y Theta Y ?!?!!

  28. Cee says:

    Did they get caught up in the curtains?

  29. Anne says:

    OMG – this may be the best awkward photo ever!

    Is it all one sheet?

    Or did they each have their own pink sheets?

  30. Nancy says:

    I believe this is the definition of awkward.

  31. LT says:

    What the….????

  32. Katie says:

    Judging by the hair and makeup, I’d say this is yet another part of the 80’s that is best left forgotten.

  33. hupla says:

    Some pictures shouldn’t be allowed on here without an explanation.

  34. Rachel says:

    I would love to hear the story behind this! This one is beyond bizarre…and totally AWKWARD! Poor kid!

    • Diane says:

      Usually when I see pics like this I try to guess what they were thinking. This one is just so totally strange that I cannot even imagine the story.

      I think AFP should have the submitters supply the story behind the pic.

  35. Marie says:

    No. Just plain old NO.

  36. Whoa says:

    Today only at Sears! Save more when you combine purchases from our white sale with a visit our photographer studio!

  37. nite owl says:

    Makes me think of that sci-fi show, “Outer Limits” — some sort of female-dominated race from outer space episode or something!

  38. Jerri says:

    Fortunately little Timmy is blind and therefore no clue he is wearing a pink sheet

  39. Peggy says:

    Oh my goodness. This leaves questions in my mind and I see that I am not the only one!

  40. Jeanne J says:


  41. msumissa says:

    When in Rome????

  42. Lois says:

    Edward Oliver Poos had always had a little difficulty holding his own on the playground with some of the other guys, who called him a mama’s boy and made fun of his name. But after one of them saw his favorite family portrait, things were never the same.

  43. softgeek says:

    Mom had no trouble controlling him when he was a teenager. Just the thought of this photo getting around school was enough to make him think twice.

  44. whowhatwhere says:

    ohhhhhh myyyy. literally the first thing I thought to myself was, “That is SO awkward!!”

  45. Don says:

    I saw it in the window. and I just couldn’t say no.

  46. Laura says:

    That sure is some crispy hair on the left!

  47. Nicole says:

    This is the what happens when you don’t warn the photographer that she’s doing a photo shoot at a nudist colony. One must improvise with what’s at hand!

  48. laurie says:

    So the goddess Venus finally settled down, huh?

    Next on the list of them learning their roots are photos of the kids in giant seashells!

  49. HS says:

    er, um, uh, hmm, yeah, I got nothing.

  50. Gordon says:

    OK Mom, enough already. Just make the bed and let’s get going!
