    This is why you don’t but kites at the dollar store.

  2. Shadow1732 says:

    Is that a little boy with a mullet? cuz thats a pretty badass mullet then

  3. Tina says:

    love the caption :) made me laugh outloud

  4. Jeff says:

    Ever since the kite had been sold at Charlie Brown’s garage sale, it had lain in wait for the precise moment to exact its revenge. And one windy day in the small town of Lickspittle AZ, that moment finally came.

    Being attacked by the Human Hummingbird of Death of Destruction.

    3 feet of pink crepe paper = $1.35
    1 Thomas the Tank Engine paper kite = $2.48
    Learning to kamakazi your mom = PRICELESS!

  7. Tim says:

    Oh no, Arron – you’re not fooling anyone! You think we can’t see past your diabolical plan!?

    This is clearly an advance team from your army of KILLER KITES!


  8. Mark says:

    I see a second kite flier in the shrubbery across the street.

    • CarrieM says:

      Yes! And look carefully at the grain elevator in the background. I believe I see a rifle barrel. Oh that kite didn’t go down by accident, my friends. It wasn’t the “wind.”

  9. Gina says:

    I lol’ed heartily. Excellent kite-on-mom attack!

  10. Brad H says:

    WOW! That kid has a full-blown mullet!

  11. Jimmer R says:

    This isn’t an awkward family photo, is it?

  12. Devil Woman says:

    I knew Thomas the Train was crazy underneath all that usefulness!

  13. Ash says:

    I like how quickly Mom is getting her middle finger up and ready to go. Photographer – get ready to be flipped off!

  14. Don says:

    Pretty obvious that Samantha was not interested in flying her kite …”up to the highest height” or even …”up through the atmosphere”. No, into the back of Mom’s head would suffice for today.

  15. Peyton says:

    Carrie: the early years.

  16. Jeff B. says:

    The Wright Brothers under-achieving descendants shown here inventing the balsa wood crash landing.

  17. Ken says:

    I was attacked by a kite once….once!!!

  18. Cierra says:

    Take THAT Mom!!! That’s what you get for telling me NO earlier!!!!

  19. Boppie says:

    It’s all fun and games, until someone loses an eye!

  20. Moose says:

    Kites, toys for human children for hundreds of years…Now the kites are fighting back. Kitewars:Revenge of the kites

  21. AllAboutDave says:

    When toys attack.

  22. chilaxx says:

    The kid’s running away, lol!

  23. laurie says:

    Sadly, Thomas the Tank Engine’s first attempt at impersonating Jay Jay the Jet Plane went horribly, horribly wrong.

  24. Karl says:

    Yeah…not awkward. Sorry.

  25. Tiggergirl0325 says:

    What’s not readily apparent is that the girl is intentionally steering it into mom as payback for not getting her the Hello Kitty kite she asked for.

  26. SweetPetunia says:

    For some reason, I find this neither awkward or amusing. I’ll check back later for something good.

    Or maybe work on the lawn a little?

    • Aaron says:

      April in Kansas. That’s as green as it gets.

    • What the Frack?! says:

      That looks like Phoenix, Arizona where the grass hibernates and turns yellow when it gets closer to winter. Some people shave the hibernating grass and then plan winter rye to keep the lawn looking green during the winter. It’s a lot thinner so it can grow through the thicker grass and they wont kill each other. During the summer they have irrigation to keep their grass green by flooding the lawn with water every month or so.

      However this looks really close to McDowell Rd and maybe 12th St so, yeah, maybe they do need to work on the lawn…

      • Aaron says:

        This pic was snapped in April in north central Kansas. Front yard is mostly bermudagrass with some patchy fescue/bluegrass/whatever. The former doesn’t green up until late May, while the latter greens up sometime in March. The yard is just fine.

        (I can’t believe I’m discussing lawn care on AFP)

  28. Baldguy says:

    Even flying kites when it’s NOT storming can be hazardous!

  29. Jen says:

    Aaron, Jen and Allison
    Those are the best times to remember. I love it! What happened next?

  30. carol says:

    Ouch! Good timing for the photographer though.

  31. Chris says:

    That is exactly why Thomas is a train and not an airplane!
