    He is asking permission to marry, and a little frightened.

  2. Sabrina says:

    I’m French .. here we don’t have engagement photos …

  3. A Nonny Mouse says:

    Ah, the French, with their style, their je ne sais quoi! Magnifique!

  4. Sioux says:

    seriously, no one commented on how straight his hands are on his legs?
    that was the first thing i noticed! the french are so weird on so many levels!

  5. Sara says:

    He’s got those things on his feet to buff the floor with… Right? Cause that’s what you do at your engagement…

  6. TJ says:

    “Stand up straight for the picture!”

  7. Mattteus says:

    the shoes are actually to keep him from floating to the ceiling, such is the tragedy of a gravity deficiency

  8. Rachelle says:

    who takes an engagement photo in a kitchen LOL

  9. Ines says:

    ahhh… feel the love…

  10. Otter says:

    Looks like Morticia Addams and her some-day-to-be butler Lurch in Junior High. “Trish! You spoke French!” Kudos to Cubby for “You rang?”

  11. funnygirl says:

    It reminds me of some kind of TV show ???

  12. Cam says:

    OMG !! It was during the 60′s or 70′s !!!
    We are not like this in France, I swear it !

    • Kiron says:

      Nay!!! The bloke’s jeans are certainly post millennium… my theory is they glued everything in their house to the ceiling including their own feet, and hanging upside down the poor boy’s back spasmed, but his girlfriend kept her floaty anti-gravitational vibe…. as only French women can.

  13. McMc says:

    I love the slight raise of the eyebrow he has going on there.

  14. jbrad says:

    Why is there ALWAYS someone that will argue that the picture isn’t awkward?????

  15. MZ says:

    This is totally the most awkward.

  16. Tony says:

    Did he wet himself? Look at his pants.

  17. Saffy says:

    Provencal gothic….

  18. Cubby says:

    You rang?

  19. Julie says:

    If only he was holding a giant wooden fork…

    • Lee says:

      If only he WERE holding a giant wooden fork. . . . (Imperfect subjunctive — Americans are so horrid when it comes to proper grammar usage!)

      • vvkathy says:

        Wow, who are you, the Grammar Cop? Lighten up!

      • Julie says:

        Lee – Seriously? I make a great joke and the best you can do is complain about my grammar? So sad.

      • Lee says:

        My name is Lee, and i didn’t say that. I only say funny things.

      • ReginaPhalange says:

        1) How do you know Julie’s American???

        2) I’m American and I’m a grammar freak most of the time. I make exceptions for comments on funny pictures, though.

        • Irene says:

          Sorry, Lee#1′s comment was the funniest thing I’ve read all day. Julie’s comment was funny, but Lee just had to go that one more surreal step.

          I actually had to bite my lip and go look out the window, since I’m in the office.

          Thanks, Lee#1!

    “Hurry up and take the picture, I gotta pee!”

  21. jitterbug says:

    to me it looks like a theatre backdrop??

  22. bex says:

    les hipsters.

  23. vincent says:

    Moi je trouve que c’est l’ensemble qui a un petit charme désuet: la posture du gars, le look années 70~80 de la fille, les pantoufles, la cuisine. On s’attend a voir surgir une petite grand-mère avec ses cheveux blancs et son tablier bleu à fleurs…

    • carol says:

      yeah, yeah, yeah–show off! :)

      • Boppie says:

        Translation: “I find that the whole thing has a quaint charm: the posture of the boy, the ’70′s-’80′s look of the girl, the slippers he’s wearing, the kitchen. I’m just waiting to see a tiny white-haired grandma in an apron with blue flowers walk in.”

        Hardly worth the mystery, non? :-] And, I think he meant to say the girl was dressed like a hippie chick, which would have been the ’60′s, not ’70′s, at least here in America.

    • Kassart says:

      N’empêche ils sont très mignons, on dirait qu’il se met au garde-à-vous !!
      Bon ok, on dirait qu’ils sortent d’une autre époque (même pour la france…), surtout la cuisine !!

      • Kassart says:

        ou bien c’est un continental qui se fiance avec une fille Corse et le père prend la photo ? alors dans ce cas, tout prend sens !!

  24. Dynomoose says:

    They look like they’re standing in front of a firing squad!

  25. Boppie says:

    I know ze answer! He is wearing ze back brace!

  26. Lenore says:

    OMG I LOVE that kitchen.

    But yes, this is awkward. They look cold, like physically cold. Maybe the heater’s broken.

  27. Nan says:

    French Gothic

  28. Amice says:

    I suspect he’s indulged in so much vin, he’s just trying desperately to stay upright.

  29. Melissa says:

    “Leapin’ Lizards”! That’s a great photo!

  30. CarpoolMom says:

    Are you sure this an engagement photo? My dad and his side of the family are French nationals and I KNOW the French can’t keep their hands off anybody. They are the most touchy feely people on earth!

  31. Tyler says:

    Woooah! You really should slap a NSFW tag on this steamy one!

  32. Nan says:

    Perhaps he’s remembering the words of his dear maman who always told him to stand up straight for photos? And the fear on his face is the thought of what would happen if he didn’t.
    Otherwise, je ne comprends pas.

  33. Arnado says:

    I love this picture, I don’t think it’s awkward at all.
