Feeling upstaged by her husband’s love of golf, Marie decides to take matters into her own hands.
its a lightsaber.
look at that little kid’s face! it’s like he can sense the impending doom!
I actually think it’s funny. They’re making a joke about the hubby’s love of golf. My parents used to fight about this too…before they got divorced!
Why is this a Christmas card photo? I don’t really see a funny point too it and that baby look’s scared to death. Maybe mommy has held this pose before behind daddy’s back. See the awkwardness too it yes, the Christmasy touch, no.
Hey is that Tiger woods’ wife?
Sorry hubby, not out of the woods yet!
Great posed photo, but that does not detract from its value at all!
I thought this was about a different type of swingers club altogether.
Not joking, I kind of wish my mother had I warned me she was publishing this to the universe. And no, she never really hit my father with the club.
I don’t which is funnier the photo or the ad for E-harmony below.
Is the caption a Tiger Woods reference?
Oh no! Not in front of the children!
she’s in the back
The perfect way to say, “Happy Holidays. We’re getting a divorce.”
This Christmas card totally beats my Christmas card with my 3 kids picking their nose….darn!
Oh, you should post it!
Yes! We need to see that.
The women looks exactly like my aunt……..but that is not my uncle nor is that her kid. lol.
Aw, I miss John Denver.
My only problem with this is that it’s the baby’s rear end that’s gonna get it in the follow-through, and I just can’t condone violence against children. Violence against clueless men who golf too much? I’d take that under consideration….
Awkward in a serious kind of way. Sure the link to Tiger Woods can be made, but his situation isn’t that funny. Nor is the fact that the baby looks like it may be hit by the golf club in this picture. Dark humor I guess.
Do you two honestly believe that the woman actually hit the man in the picture?
I’ll third this sentiment…
Um….no. I was jokingly suggesting that the man wasn’t going to *be* the real target if she followed through with a real golf swing–the heavily diapered bottom was gonna get it. Everybody needs to chill.
Amice, my comment wasn’t intended for you, it was for Popcollector. I don’t think he/she has a sense of humor at all.
I totally didn’t even know Bill Gates played golf.
Nothing says “Christmas” like bludgeoning your husband as your toddler clings to his leg!
what bothers me is that the child truly looks frightened.
No it doesn’t.
Beyond Awkward and into Disturbing.
Maybe she didn’t know about that baby until he crawled away from the friend taking the photo and said “Daddy!”
ooooooooooooooo! good one!
The young Elin Nordgren, clinging to her father’s leg, had no idea of the irony contained in this photo. Not only would her choice of shoes be a fortelling of her future fortunes, but her mother’s swing technique would be etched in deepest recesses of her brain, until one day it came out of nowhere to strike a blow for all womankind!
..as long aas she replaces the divot.
Her grip is ALL wrong.
I bet she’s a good softball player, though.
So timely…perhaps Oprah will do a show about the secret life of golf wives through the ages!
I hope not.
I bet they chose to use this shot because the next one in this sequence wasn’t pretty…
Yes, this is the “before” shot!
Well, the “after” shot would be photographed by the local CSI office
I LOVE THIS!!!!! So much fun!
This reminds me of the high school art project where you have to learn to how draw perspective, and the vanishing horizon. This photographer didn’t take that class.
Maybe she is his golf coach?
I TOLD you no golfing during the holidays!!!
The prosecutor will simply title this photo…Exhibit A.
She’s holding the club wrong. You must interlock your hands. She’s going to have a terrible slice and that baby is going to end up in the drink. If I received this card, I would rip it up and throw it away for this reason alone.
HA! I love dry literal humor!!!
She’s an ex-Softball player. Classic softball/baseball bat grip. She’s going to send his eyeglasses (and head) up the middle … child will be fine.
I think she’s aiming too high. The baby will certainly reach the green faster that he would.
I love this card!
Is that her actual hair? It looks like a fuzzy hat! Good picture for a Christmas card though…family violence is always a hoot!
lol! Yes, domestic abuse IS hilarious, isn’t it? The holidays really are a perfect time to make fun of ourselves.
From the “Do Not Use” folder of Christmas photo ideas for the Tiger Woods family.
And Elin Nordgren thinks she’s the only one to do this?
Now THIS is a family Christmas card photo that I would proudly stick to my refrigerator. Hilarious!!! I bet they’re a fun couple to play cards with.
That is the perfect caption!
I love it! A couple with a sense of humour, and obviously they have some not-so-private jokes of him golfing too much! this is much better than all the truely awkward photos of families faking smiles and happiness! This is a keeper!
I totally agree… this is hilarious and I love the look on the baby’s face. This is a well staged composition.
Agreed! I receive a million photo cards every year, and the only ones I remember are the ones who have a sense of humor about it (and that one family who insisted on having posed Christmas shots of their only child until he was 16… but that’s a story for another time). I’d LOVE to have this hanging up on my card wall!
I gotta agree too. It’s staged, yeah, but the way they staged it is super awkward and hilarious.
This is a great one for sure.
I think that Elin Woods received this card and a little light bulb turned on in her head…
She’s a real Tiger in the Woods!
Ha! That’s classic!
excellent…head to the nineteeth hole.
Too early for a Tiger Woods joke?
It’s NEVER too early for a Tiger Woods joke!
Staged or posed or photoshopped or whatever, I don’t care. But WHY ON EARTH would you send this out as your Christmas card?
Some things are beyond explanation (like about why people get so upset and touchy about someone suggesting that a picture is staged or posed as in the last photo) but one thing’s for sure– the baby is so cute! I’m sure we can all agree on that!
Cute, yes, but he looks like he’s on the verge of tears. How on earth long were they out there???
Why are they golfing in the middle of the woods? I think the wife may have lured him here just for this reason… FORE!
I heard they were golfing in the “Tiger” woods……ha ha ha
maybe he golfs a bit too much & they wanted to be funny?
They may have taken the kid into consideration… Merry Christmas from the Mulligans.
