Some people are happy the holidays are over.
That’s the Souphanousinphone family from King of the Hill.
The boy in the first picture looks like he is in pain lol tralalalala lala la la
All you fools are totally missing the point of these pictures! It is not an APOSTROPHE but rather a comma first of all! Secondly, did u guys join this group to become English majors or have a good laugh at other people’s expenses? Come on…seriously!!
You don’t need to be an English major to understand the difference between a comma and an apostrophe…
It seems those who use ‘u’ for ‘you’ can be the most tetchy about grammar… I wonder why? Ah, because we’re fools. 🙂 I tend to enjoy the comments at least as much as the pics!
That boy looks like a young Al Gore.
And for that matter, what if the people who are in the bottom picture are actually NAMED “US”?
Then the caption would read
Christmas Greetings from the Us’
Maybe the “seasons greetings” is something that BELONGS to the Dalys.
“Season’s greetings.. from some of us.”
“Christmas Greetings from Us” – with “Us” crossed out, and “Me” written in, with an arrow pointing to older sis!
I’m so glad the apostrophe misuse was pointed out from the get-go… the girl’s face is definitely secondary to gross grammatical errors!
SOMEONE wants a cookie but SOMEONE was denied a cookie. Can you guess who?
Those people look so sad. I can’t imagine sending that out as my Christmas card. Amazing amounts of Christmas cheer just flood out of those pics.
Love the Daly’s. Season’s greetings? Seasons’ greetings? Seasons greeting’s? Punctuation is hard. No wonder she’s not happy.
If it’s such a pain in the butt, why do these people even have their pictures taken? Really, why bother? It’s not like it’s a law. Man!
It almost looks like the brother and sister in the first pic are a little afraid to be that close to the blonde girl. Like in minute her head will spin around and she will start chanting. Run a way, run a way!
Love which one of the Daly’s what? His or her toaster? His or her dog? Some other favorite possession of the Daly in question? For the love, people! Leave the apostrophes alone if you don’t know how to use ’em!
You know, you’re the first person to comment on that!
That was supposed to be a sideways smiling face with the tongue sticking out. I didn’t realize it would morph into an emoticon with a superflulous tilde lying on the ground beside it.
I’m guessiing there was a fight over who got to wear the reindeer antlers in the bottom picture.
I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who is annoyed by needless apostrophes! I think about half the Christmas cards/pictures I get have those, most of them from people who should certainly know better.
The Holidays: never celebrated, simply survived
The family in red is upset because the hurricane warning was issued hours ago, the house is still only half boarded up (look over Dad’s head) AND they still have to finish sitting for the annual Christmas photo. It’s so hard not to let the holidays stress you out!
I don’t see a half boarded house…?
I know, it’s a stretch. It’s clearly a really nice house. I was just imagining that the tan piece of facade on the 2nd floor was actually a piece of particleboard…installed because of the coming hurricane, of course! Just trying to explain why they look so miserable in such a beautiful, lush place.
Does anyone else wish they could read the teen’s t-shirt in the second pic???
I think the girl on the left of the second picture (hereforth known as “smiley”) got to pick the photo that went out…
I think little Miss Daly is adopted…and not happy about it.
I was thinking that or the step-child. LOL
The Daly’s what?
Oh man, that blonde girl in the top photo (“Love, the Daly’s”) is going to be trouble some day ….
My guess is she already is.
My guess is she’s not feeling well, like too much Halloween candy in her and she’s ready to let loose.
I dont get it they dont look happy at all lol
If I had to take a “Brady-esque” Christmas photo all matchy matchy with my family you better believe I would be giving the ‘death’ stare too lol
But come on… this two photo’s were the best of the bunch to send out to people?!?! Goodness…
After 50 photos.. this was the best. Don’t ask about the worst… They are being saved for a future wedding montage. (along with the bare baby on a bear rug photo…if it’s not illegal by then.)
Teens don’t like to be in photos that parents take. OTOH, they like to take photos of each other taking photos, in a herd at a public place.
I love the expressions on the bottom picture. So age appropiate for the girls. The teen is flirty and the youngest has no filter. The dad is too concerned about the process to relax, and mom has a “knowing mom” smile.
Great analysis haha.
I think the blond girl and the girl on the right in the second photo are the same person.
Oh, yeah – I can just totally fell the Seasonal Cheer! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go drink some bleach…
The apostrophe “s” in the first one makes it perfect.
I didn’t even notice that… spellchecker please?
Spellchecker won’t catch that. It’s not incorrect in an entirely different context. Dependence on spellcheckers is what’s making this more and more common.
Actually a spell checker checks letters, not punctuation. One would need what Office calls “grammar checker.” One I need constantly. 🙂
well I guess the Daly’s and “us” won’t be doing the seasonal cards anymore…
I think the girl in the first picture is pissed off about the spurious apostrophe in the caption.
Thank You! That was too distracting to even look at the photo!
i agree… i’m no punctuation stickler but that is the one error i cannot stand! why do people think it’s right?! oh well…
For the same reason I saw a sign in a store that sold “can’s” of soda for 1.00 (Not sure what the 1 stood for. Camels?) and “bottle’s” for 1.25. My favorite is when I see the MENS’ and WOMENS’ departments.
One in five Americans thinks the sun revolves around the Earth. Most can’t find a randomly-chosen Asian country on the map. Do you really think they’re going to understand the difference between possessives and plurals?
WHAT?!?!?! The sun doesn’t revolve around the earth?!?!?!
all I know is I never move, but the sun seems to change places, or place’s or places’ or placeses.
No, I don’t expect it, but it sure would be nice if they did.
To Submit Comment:
I’m American and I can’t even read or write, so you’re probably right. I don’t understand a thing about possessives, plurals or people who think Americans are the only ones who get spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary incorrect on occasion.
*grumbling* take a perfectly good funny and spoil it by saying I’m ign’int and unedumacated
Totally agree!! My first thought was, “The Daly’s what?”
The Daly’s Seasons Greetings…see, they possess “Seasons Greetings” and were just now announcing it with that card! The middle child wanted to keep it a secret a little longer, but it was time to let everyone know that they owned Seasons Greetings” with NO apostrophe in the “Seasons” of course! LOL! The Regular “Season’s Greetings” with the apostrophe is in public domain! It all makes perfect sense.
The boy looks like he just pooped himself.
How’d you guys miss the LACK of apostrophe in “Seasons Greeting”? It should be Season’s Greetings (as in greetings of the season). It just gets awkward and awkwarder…
Someone at the photo print place is dumberer than a bag of bricks
I’d be upset too!
LOL! You’re probably right!
