Here’s staring at you, mom.

This…is just akward…not the toga’s….the gazing…..
to me kid looks like wtf xD
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.
LOL, the Star Trek comment.
It looks like they’re tied together at the shoulder…
Wow. I just…
This just definitely win the Awkward of the Year Award.
i agree with kate.. lol i hope you’re wedding pics were NOT artistic lol!
Lea — what did your MIL & SIL wear to your wedding?!?!?
I don’t blame you. lol
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.
Holy moly….this one is just….wow…awkward!!
omg so weird!
Wow… What an uncomfortable picture. Seriously.
Congratulations Lea! That was easily the most awkward photo that I’ve ever seen on this site!
Most. Awkward. Photo. EVER!
While many of the pics on this site are NOT awkward in the least, this is the definition of awkward. Good Submission.
AHHHHH. so creepy!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with Erin. I’m going considerably out of my way to comment upon this awkwardness. And frankly, I’m semi-afraid…
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.
Thanks for the background! I hope your husband wasn’t *too* scarred by the experience. . .
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.
Looks like same sex couple with their son, which is fine, but why take a photograph wrapped in bedsheets? very awkward
There have been lots of funny and weird photos, but this is damned awkward. For me anyway, the kid seems OK with it.
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!
This photo makes me uncomfortable.
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.
They were white togas, but someone left a red sock in the washing basket.
what. in. the. world.
Adoptive mother and birth mother?
Really stretching to find a reason for this wierd one.
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.
Yes! The mother and son look like they are in the same sheet. Even more awkward! And who is that woman/girl on the right???
Ya know, looking more closely at the way the women gaze at each other, I’d say the two women are a couple.
It was almost bedtime anyway…
It’s a new Fraternity..Y Theta Y ?!?!!
Did they get caught up in the curtains?
OMG – this may be the best awkward photo ever!
Is it all one sheet?
Or did they each have their own pink sheets?
i was thinking the same thing!
I believe this is the definition of awkward.
My thoughts exactly.
Judging by the hair and makeup, I’d say this is yet another part of the 80’s that is best left forgotten.
Some pictures shouldn’t be allowed on here without an explanation.
I would love to hear the story behind this! This one is beyond bizarre…and totally AWKWARD! Poor kid!
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.
No. Just plain old NO.

That was funny
Makes me think of that sci-fi show, “Outer Limits” — some sort of female-dominated race from outer space episode or something!
Fortunately little Timmy is blind and therefore no clue he is wearing a pink sheet
HA! That is so funny!
Oh my goodness. This leaves questions in my mind and I see that I am not the only one!
When in Rome????
This is my favorite comment!
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.
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.
OMG that’s ingenious – I have two young sons and am going to get a snapshot like this right away!
You may have stumpbed on to the only sane explanation as to WHY? Why, Why WHY?!!
ohhhhhh myyyy. literally the first thing I thought to myself was, “That is SO awkward!!”
seriously that was my first thought also
This is the most awkward family photo we’ve seen in some time
I saw it in the window. and I just couldn’t say no.
Good one! Oh so funny!!!!. But Carol Burnett looked so much more believable!
That sure is some crispy hair on the left!
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!
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!
er, um, uh, hmm, yeah, I got nothing.
Nope, I’m out, too.
Wait, clearly they’re…no….
Probably they just…hmmmm….
I got nothing either…DARN!!
OK Mom, enough already. Just make the bed and let’s get going!
that is so funny, I was laughing my a__ off on your comment
WOW!!!! That IS awkward!!!!
