    Looks like the dreaded “I’M BORED” stage……sorry mom and dad, it will pass eventually!

  2. Katelyn says:

    This is Marney in childhood, they just would never use the regulation casserole dish at gatherings…

  3. Stu says:

    I gotta say this is my favorite of all time. A true classic!

  4. bob phil mcmoocow says:

    that is what i did in the group photo from school camp this year…

  5. onewhoreads says:

    alternate caption: “She’s not with us.”

  6. Emobunni says:

    OMG! That’s the same look and pose I had at my sister’s graduation picture too!

  7. uglymike says:

    Instead of the caption reading “I’m not with them”, it should read “We’re not with her”.

  8. Justin says:

    Alright everyone gather up for the family picture. No wait, not you sweetie…Ya you stand over there…Just right over…ya perfect.

  9. John III says:

    She lost her compound bow…AND her parrot.

  10. Modine says:

    Looks like teen spirit.

    I wonder what the occasion was that this family just *had* to take a photo at this moment. Couldn’t it have waited a few hours until the sibling bickering had cooled off?

    And this photo proves that awkwardness need not come in dated duds.

      That’s a funny question — reminds me of how my mother always picked the most inopportune moment to want to take a picture– when the baby was cranky and ready for a nap or at the end of the party when we were all exhausted. We tried to talk her out of it, but of course we had to go along– and we all end up looking like the girl in this pic.

    I’m not going to smile and you can’t make me!

  13. Tim says:

    It just looks that way because “Harvey” is taking up so much space between her and the family…

  14. Susan Ryer says:

    Let me guess. 13?

  15. meri says:

    they are all rude for shunning her, but the blond in the blue shirt seems to deliberately pulling her body away from all physical contact with her

  16. Jles says:

    wait..which ones are the parents??!!

    Cinderella 2009

  18. Kurtacus says:

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry on that one! LOL, BOOHOOHOO, LOL, BOOHOOHOO

  19. cnc music factory!! says:

    funny pic, but seriously, the blonde with the blue shirt is a hot tomale!

    yowser!

    Look at who’s frowning. Obviously she and her brother had a fight right before this picture was taken and the rest of the family is trying to ignore the situation and go on with the family photo as planned. But she’s not standing by HIM, nosirree!

    • Cee says:

      I agree – look at the very slight way that he’s leaning away from his sister. It hink they had a big blowout right before the photo!

  21. Noodella says:

    Shun. Shun the poor girl. Or she’s annoyed that no-one will acknowledge her special friend and it hurts her feelings.

  22. sheryl says:

    Oh, that makes me sad for her.

  23. Gregorian says:

    Brother isn’t all that pleased with the situation either.
    And the more I look at it, it’s forced smiles all round.

  24. Gimminy says:

    So this is the red-headed stepchild I’ve heard so much about.

  25. AiXeLsyD13 says:

    “They’re all gonna laugh at you!”

  26. kmac says:

    I think she’s adorable. And this photo is hilarious in its own way.

  27. carol says:

    This is sad. This is just not right. Beyond awkward, just sad.

  28. Andy says:

    you took me away from the tv for this????

  29. Mark says:

    Taken just before their dead Jedi uncle materialized in the open space.

  30. al says:

    Which one of these doesn’t belong? Not real hard to figure out which siblings Mom and Dad love the most.

  31. Andria says:

    The imaginary “good” daughter is filling that space.

  32. Roberta says:

    There were lots of times in my life when I felt like this in my family…I feel for her!

  33. Becky says:

    She looks like she’s with the pissed-off guy in the back…

  34. Beth says:

    She’s just upset with Aunt Marney.
