    It looks like a water pistol I had back in the 80s. I also had one that passed for an Uzi.

  2. Amy says:

    I think I finally get what purpose those white bibbed dresses serve.


    This shot rules….very Coen Brothers/Mid West flare. *_*

    “This is a family friendly compound and you government agents will not be getting in today. Thank you so very much.”

  5. placethesix says:

    I’m Bill S. Preston, Esquire!

  6. ballfour says:

    OK kids, tomorrow is Dad’s birthday. So we are getting up and going to early church, over to Shoney’s for a nice brunch. And then we’ll head out to the country to mutilate some wildlife with the new oozie we gave him.

  7. April says:

    I think Bill’s wearing a monocle!

  8. Elizabeth says:

    As in the Alloson Krause song…As I went down in the river to pray studying about that good ole way, and who shall wear the starry crown, good lord show me the way….o sinners lets go down, let’s go down, come on down, oh sinners lets go down, down in the river to pray.

    Right on, CS

    its not a dirty bomb, its just a cheap pistol. some places in this country aren’t terrified of pistols any more than harvest combines or guitars.

    For all we know, its a movie prop. Turtleneck dad thought it would make a funny picture, he’s not affecting the toughguy stance, he’s just saying, “look at me with this unusual thing!” not even awkward, really.

    Like to see how funny Shwendler Family Photos is

  10. CS says:

    John S,

    You are right, you are far funnier.

  11. gruven_reuven says:

    I heard of a shotgun wedding, but an Uzi wedding?

  12. John Schwendler says:

    This shouldn’t even be considered funny. Take it down.

    • Rick says:

      I respectfully disagree. This type of picture defines this website. The picture defies logic and begs for an explanation. It just doesn’t get any more awkward than this … well, sure, it could get more awkward, but you get the idea! 😎

    • Ken says:

      It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who visit this website who have NO SENSE OF HUMOR!!!!

  13. Paul says:

    Mob hitmen have “take your kid to work day”?

  14. hcw80 says:

    This year I guarentee you Sallyjune will take home the blue ribbon for her peach cobbler or the judges can just talk to my little friend here.

  15. jerry says:

    “Hi! We are the new Tithe Committee. Can we count on you to raise your support a bit this year? I thought so. From now on, we will come by so you don’t have to make that long trip into church. God Bless You and SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!”

  16. Jules says:

    In this congregation, tithing isn’t just a suggestion.

  17. Betsy says:

    I never knew James Bond had kids

  18. Chris says:

    I believe the weapon is a Mac 10 Ingram.

  19. Jeff M says:

    What the….? (o_0)

  20. Rob says:

    I’m getting so used to the gun photos that I’m more disturbed by the pioneer dress/dentist’s bib ensemble.

  21. Tricia says:

    Why do so many people pose with guns when they’re obviously not hunting? That is just strange.

  22. Craig says:

    Blessings be upon those who lead the flock with a semi-automatic weapon.

  23. Sheila says:

    This is one where I REALLY want to know the background story. How do we know this guy didn’t kidnap these kids and is mocking authorities? It is just so freakin creepy!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Ken says:

      Do you really think that anyone…. anyone… would be smiling or simply straight-faced if they were kidnapped by a nut job with a gun? Er… wait a minute…. I think maybe… HEY AFP I THINK YOU GOT ANOTHER PHOTOSHOP JOB… SHEESH, YOU THINK YOU GUYS WOULD MAYBE JUST START TO GET A LITTLE BETTER AT SPOTTING THESE!!!

  24. BadgerFan says:

    Machinegun Wedding photo?

  25. NorandaPete says:

    Northern Ireland, IRA family member…..’nuff said…..

  26. Becky says:

    I think the boy on the left has a black eye…frightening considering the photo!

  27. Brandon says:

    Moments before the newest IRA recruits completed their first mission…

  28. Neezy13 says:

    Dad’s just gangsta like that. Rollin’ with his Mack 10.

  29. Iggy says:

    Coming this Fall: He’s a former pastor and weapons expert. She’s a girl from amish country. He’s a street smart high school student. Together they are fighting crime in the country’s heartland in Iowa Blues.

  30. Dane says:

    Kids? C’mon, get on your best Sunday go to shooting clothes!

  31. joanna says:

    I think the gun is there to signify “shotgun wedding”.

  32. bluetutu says:

    He’s getting ready for his date with one of the Compound Bow girls.

  33. Sara says:

    The girl on the right has Sally Jupiter hair.

  34. Tim says:

    “We invite you to join our family for prayer, worship and song. But if you try to so much as lay a finger on my daughter..!”

  35. Stunbunny says:

    The von Trapp kids are all grown up.

  36. cyantificPolymorph says:

    when mossad puts agents under cover, they go DEEP!

  37. Bob says:

    This is one I’d really like to know the back story behind, I’m a “gun head” and this pic is too wierd even for me… :/

  38. Andre says:

    Ms. Atwood´s “The Handmaiden´s tale” Live!!

  39. Zack says:

    The pastor decided to make sure the this couple would not be part of the highest divorce rate to date….with a new “twist” to pre-marital counseling!

  40. bee says:

    no more mr. nice guy

  41. Phil says:

    Don’t ever mess with the Columbians. (By “Columbians”, we mean Columbia, Missouri)

  42. SG says:

    When Pastor Joseph caught Amanda shagging his son Luke, he took the shotgun wedding a little too far…

  43. Jen says:

    What kind of gun is that???

    • Bob says:

      Hi Jen, It looks like a Mac 10 or copy with a fake noise suppressor….. and I doubt it’s full auto, just a semi-auto

    • Zach says:

      Its a Mac-10 (or 11) with a silencer. Designed to shoot from the hip and clear a room of all living things but thats about it. No aim whatsoever.

  44. binkymae says:

    I see prairie, but this guy is no Reverend Alden.

  45. Adrienne says:

    For some reason, the turtleneck and blazer combo makes this work.

  46. Liz1388 says:

    I think he just shot a part in the girl’s hair. Is she holding the ammo clip?

  47. Mel says:

    Why do I get the feeling that they live in a compound rather than simply a neighborhood? And please, somebody tell me that is not a wedding ring I see on that young girl’s hand…

  48. Leigh says:

    Is that Bill (or Ted?) on the left? (whichever one is not Keanu Reeves)

  49. Trish says:

    Okay. But what POSSESSES people to pose in a field, in their Sunday best, with a firearm?

  50. TIM says:

    The family that preys together stays together.
