The Patriot - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“My grandfather is the star of many awkward family photos. Here, he poses pantsless, with a pair of kettlebells, artistically composed at his feet to highlight his lack of pants and booty short spandex. The ¬†flag in the background pretty much says it all: this is AMERICA.”

    They hung the Christmas balls out on the Fourth of July.

    Looks like someone fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and won!

  5. cowgirl says:

    These are my kettlebells, this is my gun, these are for lifting, this is for fun.

  6. Christine says:

    WOW…go Gramps! Lookin good!

  7. Ashlings says:

    I had no idea they were detachable. Guess I should have paid more attention in biology.

  8. hcw80 says:

    America, even our elderly still have the power to carry their iron balls.

  9. kmac says:

    This has got to be the most awkward photo I’ve ever seen. Totally awesome.

  10. Bernardo says:

    For once, Granpa has EXACTLY the right amount of cowbell.

  11. Old Penguin says:

    Definitely photo-shopped. ;-)

    “n’ I’m proud to be an Americaannnnn…where at least I know they’re freeeee….”

  13. JoBo says:

    I LOVE your Grandpa. This is like seeing what my husband will look like in 30 years or so. My husband sports that very same look!

  14. jeff b says:

    AMERICA: Our Balls are so big we can’t even wear pants!

  15. doreen says:

    It was a nice family photo until I scrolled down and realized it was a pants optional photo shoot.

  16. Boppie says:

    Some families just added more to the American melting pot than others did, and this grandfather wants you to know exactly WHAT!

  17. Dave says:

    America… F*** YEAH!

  18. Dawn says:

    The flag is not backwards…it’s appropriate to have the stars in the upper left hand corner when faced out to the street or hanging on a post.

    And REALLY? that’s what you focus on in this photo? I see a whole lot more to focus on. Hubba Hubba

  19. JoAnne says:

    Myyyyyyy goodness! Actually, Grandma and Grandpa both look to be in great shape…but dang, Grandpa, put on some pants!

  20. Linx0rz says:

    LOL The girl in the middle’s body language is hilarious! She’s all turned to the side…I don’t know you, I don’t know you….hahaha

  21. Stacey says:

    *Real American Hero…*

    We salute you, Mr Uber Obvious Innuendo Ball Man…

  22. MyLeftNut says:

    I think both GrandParents should put down their toys before they poke someone’s eye out! Good Grief!

  23. Prof D says:

    Oh my! Gramps, put on some pants, stat! VERY awkward, indeed.

  24. KB says:

    If we could find a grandpa like this for Marney, Lisa Byron Chesterford could host Thanksgiving this year!

  25. Sidekick says:

    Ever wonder why Hannah always has her back toward gramps in the family photos? Wonder no more.

  26. Snowrider says:

    Grandpa looks like he could kick butt. Hanna is a hottie…..but Grandma looks a little chilly. SHEESH!

  27. Kurtacus says:

    Thanks for some great laughs, folks. I can’t top any of these comments.

  28. Linda says:

    No wonder Hannah has her back turned to her grandfather. Ewwwww. AWKWARD

  29. MN says:

    Best awkward picture EVER.

  30. This crap is so funny! I’m not sure why I have never been here before, but now that I’m here I think I’ll stay a bit.

  31. kandee says:

    Bahaaaaaa. WOW – holy mother of brass ones. Yikes. My poor eyes.

  32. velcrodots says:

    I vote this for most awkward pic of the year! The fact that it’s your Grandpa makes it even more awkward XD

  33. Charlene says:

    Why is the flag backwards?

  34. CeCe says:

    Is that Mrs. Grandpa? If not, will he go out with me? On second thought, I don’t think I could handle it.

  35. Ishtar says:

    In the words of Jerry Lee Lewis “Great Balls O’ Steel”! Grandma certainly looks proud to be Grandpas American!

  36. faust says:

    all my eyes see in that photo is the cute girl in the middle.

  37. nite owl says:

    Is that a compound bow or is grandpa just glad to see you?

  38. Caleb says:

    laugh at grandpa all you want, but that’s one happy grandma.

  39. Emm says:

    I’d leave a funny comment, but Grandpa looks like he could kick my a**

  40. Allison says:

    Now THIS is what I consider an Awkward Family Photo!! Finally! Grandpa, I love you for adding your uncomfortable touch to this photo. God Bless America.

  41. Dane says:

    Next we have a photo of Bob Johnson and family. Bob is world renown for coining the term “Cruise Missile” and in later years he came up this the term “Weapon of Mass Destruction”. Thanks Bob, a true American patriot!

  42. DD says:

    Now I see why Gam’s looks soooo happy. Dang!

  43. Deb says:

    Let your flag fly, my friend. America means Freedom to Bulge.

  44. MEB says:

    Your grandfather is John Glenn?

  45. Jalaine says:

    Sad thing is, I have that dress.

  46. rex mannared says:

    You must admit, he has big balls.
