    Scurvy never looked so exciting.

  3. I am DJ...hear me! says:

    “You…..yeah you….the one in the back..on the left….yeah you! What…are you French? You can’t be a pirate…you’re French!

    I bet this family wanted to send out greeting cards for Talk Like A Pirate Day. (Sept 19th) Sadly, the trend never caught on.

  9. Ali says:

    They need an infusion of PIRATTITUDE!

  10. Jyyyyyyyl says:

    Is anyone else weirded out that the kids all look like that boy from “Let the Right One In”?

  11. Teresa says:

    scary thing is that photo isn’t really that old……Mom’s do is though.

  12. Tim says:

    ..and to think, they waited in line 3 hours just to see Keith Richards’ scenes…all 7 minutes of it.

    No Jolly Roger for these Pirates…. Arrrr

  14. grimey says:

    ..iz arf to Davy Jones locker fer all of yuz

  15. Donna says:

    aaargh, pirates don’t smile – they have rotten teeth.

  16. EvilDolly says:

    They’re clearly followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

  17. Angie says:

    I must be the odd one out here. The first thing I thought when I saw this was “not very REALISTIC looking pirates.” On the other hand, I DO dress like a pirate on a regular basis, hang out with OTHER people who dress like pirates, and we’re quite the organized pirate crew. (Renaissance faire junkie? That I am). In fact, there’s a picture of about 20-30 of us, and we all look like we could be POTC extras.

    The little one looks like he’s got the scurvy.

    “Avast, ye matey!… oh why bother anymore…..?”

  20. amy says:

    Arrgh – it brings a tear to me one good eye.

  21. Voodoo Chile says:

    Yar, Awkward Family Photos be the only place for Steve.

  22. Don says:

    Jack had grown up in Pittsburgh and had always been a fan. When his wife told him she wanted the family to dress up like Pirates for the picture he was on cloud nine. He would make Willie Stargell and Roberto Clemente so proud. From the look on Jack’s face it’s pretty evident he and his wife were not on the same sheet of music.

  23. Karen says:

    Argh! Ye pillaged our shoes…nows we walk the plank! Arrrrrrgh!

  24. melba says:

    I have to disagree with those who thinks that mom looks remotely ok with it. Nobody looks ok with it. That is the sheer awkwardness. Usually there is ONE person who wanted to be there. NONE of them want to be there like that.

    Who or what behind the scenes is forcing them to do this?

  25. Nancy says:

    I sure wouldn’t want to be the photographer on this one. They don’t look like the smiling type. lol

  26. akprincess72 says:

    Pirates of the Carib. meets the Les Mis rejects???

  27. Dane says:

    Avast ye landlubbers! Where be our smiles and our shoes?

  28. Katana says:

    Oh my goodess! Let’s preserve the moment and not all smile at once – or at all for that matter!!!

  29. Denise says:

    AND…Bwahhh hahhaaha…..AND the photographer signed and copyrighted the photo so no one else could take credit for his artistic genius!!!

  30. Chazlette says:

    They haz a sad 🙁

  31. Dad’s pissy because he wanted to dress up like ninjas.

  32. chillax says:

    Hey, don’t knock Pirates of the Caribbean!

  33. HeatherW says:

    I’ll be this was one of those things that seemed like a good idea that one time in the car. And then it came true, and as soon as the camera clicked, everyone realized what a horrendous idea it really was. I’ll bet they don’t even like talking about this day.

  35. Hannah says:

    Is the dad wearing a feather boa???? O.o

  36. Pertigal says:

    Well, pirates DO have to look mean.

  37. Ronja says:

    They could all quite curb their enthusiasm.

  38. Peskys Pole says:

    They all look like they are suffering from scurvy.

  39. Michelle says:

    You know it’s bad……..when the kids are embarrassed.

  40. haleysmomma says:

    What do you mean “not everybody liked Pirates of the Caribbean”???? It looks like NOBODY liked Pirates of the Caribbean!!!! lol

  41. Gabby says:

    Why is the girl in the back left wearing a graduation cap? Or is it a regular ski hat with an upside down anvil inside? I am also loving Dad’s maroon feather boa! Actually, I bet this family is a lot of fun, and they’re just pretending to look mean and grumpy to get into the pirate spirit!

  42. Williams Clan says:

    I am so confused here…where to begin. They all half-heartedly decided to do a pirate thing…which for some only means bandana. Their clothing isn’t pirate..and besides the mom, the rest look like they would rather be picking up road kill with their bare hands than be in this picture. Can’t say I blame them….

  43. Anon says:

    Umm…mom’s idea

  44. KaHarta says:

    Weren’t these people on “Wife Swap”?

  45. Kero says:

    Is that how mom dresses on a daily basis? She’s pirated up and the only one who looks like they remotely want to be there.

    • gabeaux says:

      The father is losing his hair and insisted that he be able to cover it. When he showed up looking like Blackbeard, the mom in her eagerness to have a family photo made, allowed the kids to cover their heads to take attention away from the balding dad. My question is, where are their shoes and where did the kid on the left get the Spanish Inquisition hat?

    • iLOLd says:

      This looks so depressing, I can’t muster up a good “Yellowbeard” quote…


      Stagger, stagger, roll, roll…zzzzzzzz
