    This is actually a yoga position that is somewhat difficult to do! Now, doing it in your undies when you’re a grandpa still makes for a funny photo. But there’s no reason to hate, this guy is in shape!

    PawPaw, sing the Y.M.C.A. song for me again, pleeeeeeeeeeze……..

  3. Beth says:!!!!! THis photo wins!!! Face down!

    errr, I mean hands down.

  4. Steph says:

    Was grandpa doing yoga?

  5. ReginaPhalange says:

    Eek. I never want the answer to “boxers or briefs” if the answer if “briefs”.

  6. writeonyoga says:

    hmmm…I think he’d have an easier time on the floor, but go grandpa!

  7. slimmy timmy says:

    the backstory is that he was actually superglued by the feet to the wall and was discovered 3 days after he’d booked into the motel by a chambermaid who took the pic – thank god he was a vegetarian.

  8. Milkcow says:

    I think he looks kind of hot

  9. CarrieM says:

    I wonder what other people have done on those hotel bedspreads. This didn’t come to mind, though.

  10. John says:

    And thats how you keep “cigar” stains away from your undies πŸ˜›

  12. Anne says:

    I think this is my ex-husband…seriously.

    • Nikki says:

      Not possible. LOL There is only ONE Poppaw out there, thank God! He also wears short shorts, black knee socks, and brown tennis shoes to mow the lawn…

  13. Andrew says:

    I am familiar with this position. If you have the right environment it is a perfect position for expelling gas (or “farting position”, as my brothers called it.) You see, the air rises, and in no time you are naturally gas-free. No Beano needed.

  14. Mic C says:

    Is Grandpa German or something. This is so something my overly athletic German relatives would do. And yes, in their underpants. Grandma, too.

  15. Alan says:

    Now he’s in position, Gramps will now drink a glass of water whilst singing the national anthem.

  16. backchat says:

    Don’t worry, Nikki! This picture just proves that Grandpa is a Rock Star! Tell him his peeps love him : )

  18. Charlene says:

    Grandpa’s packin’ heat!

  19. Jenny says:

    The idea of anybody taking a picture of somebody doing a handstand in his underwear in a motel room leads me to one conclusion: there had to be alcohol involved.

  20. Howard M Beers says:

    The only shot that might have been even stranger than this would be a picture taken from just outside of this motel room of the shadow that gramps would be casting on the curtains.

    “Up side down, boy you turning me, inside out – round and round.”

  22. Whoa says:

    We’ll leave the light on for ya.

    Well, maybe not.

  23. Nancy says:

    What creeps me out is that he is on what looks to be a Motel6 bedspread..Yikes! Warning:Don’t ever touch a motel bedspread.

    • BJMallory says:

      They NEVER get changed or washed unless they are soaking wet or in some other way ruined. I was a hotel maid once upon a time so I know the drill – get in the room, throw off the spread, change the sheets and put the spread back on. Bleh.

  24. Patrick says:

    Possibly the most disturbing cure for hiccups ever witnessed.

  26. dragonmamma says:

    Those of you posting disparaging comments; how many of you can do a headstand? Grandpa appears to be in pretty good shape; he can probably whoop the tar out of you young whipper-snappers!

  27. Nikki says:

    DeAnna, payback is HELL!!! ROFL!

  28. mrs5180 says:

    Well, he must know what he’s doing…for a grandpa, he seems to be in prety good shape πŸ˜€

  29. Mike says:

    Sirsasana. Not a very smart idea to practise on a mattress, though. Lack of balance, as figure shows.

  30. monalisa says:

    awkward, you call this awkward? i call it downright disturbing!! oy vey ~

  31. Nikki says:

    This is my pic and I don’t have a story really. It’s my grandfather. I don’t even know who took the picture. He travels a lot with friends and traveled with my grandmother until she passed away. So it could have been a friend or my grandmother. He was very athletic when he was younger. He played and reffd football, played basketball, and was a trick waterskiier. I guess he was just showing out or being goofy. What’s funny is that he has no idea I’ve posted this but family will probably tell him. I’m gonna be in trouble. LOL

    • Dotte says:

      That’s too funny, Nikki. Thanks for sharing. But why in his underwear? Just wondering if he couldn’t have put on some pajama bottoms or something.

      • Nikki says:

        I have continually asked myself the same question since I found this picture. I’m seriously scarred for life…

      • carol says:

        At the time, he might have been goofing around and not expecting someone to take his picture. And he most certainly wasn’t expecting this picture to show up in public. I think grandfather is going to be angry, ooh.

      • poodbird says:

        I don’t think it would qualify as awkward if he had his old-guy jammies on….

        • KH says:

          On the bright side….at least he’s in good shape and his underwear aren’t torn or stained!!

          • Mic C says:

            You are banned from posting, because my riotous laughter at your comment is causing my dogs to go nuts. :):):):):):):):)):):):) Thanks for a great laugh, KH.

    • iLOLd says:

      Tighty Whitey Good God Almighty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. DeAnna says:

    Nikki I can’t believe you put Poppaw on here. I’m tellin him

  33. db says:

    We now return to “Road Trip with Ace and Gary”.

  34. Amice says:

    He must be a …tiger? … in bed!

  35. lame says:

    Where is the family in this photo. I’m getting annoyed by the frequent awkward family photos sans family.

  36. Joan says:

    It’s also the last time you will ever sleep without nightmares!

  37. Lori says:

    Well at least he’s in enough shape to do this!

  38. Lynda says:

    Man, he is gonna hurt himself!

  39. Baldguy says:

    A recent photo of Jack Laanne? (he’s still alive, BTW!)

  40. Joey says:

    I think they call this “Yo-gag”.

  41. Tim says:

    Could be worse…I mean, he IS wearing underwear.

  42. Niki says:

    Wow. I’m not sure I’d want you for a roomie if you took a picture of me in my undies. Put the camera away Nikki and let grandad do his yoga.

  43. sassy says:

    maybe it’s me but that’s just creepy

  44. Palmesan says:

    Obviously a homesick Australian ….

  45. David says:

    You just gotta pray this was taken with a timer, anyone wittnessing this gent actually getting into that position is gonna be scarred, seriously scarred.

    • Bill says:

      You are right. YEEEEEARS of therapy will not erase that–I feel like I need therapy after just seeing the picture, much less being in the same room.

  46. Dora says:

    Well, at least his underpants are clean! πŸ™‚

  47. BJMallory says:

    Downward facing OMG.

  48. AwkWerrrd says:
