“This is my family in the 90’s. We lived in Alaska at the time, so I guess my
parents thought our relatives would like to see us as Eskimos.”

Doesn’t EVERY family have a studio portrait of themselves festooned with dead animals? C’mon….REPRESENT!
nope. do show 🙂
Ashley, did you manage to find a support group? 😉
The girl on the left is having a luxury overload. She can hardly keep her eyes open.
In the moment of glory that the photographer captured the mustachioed look on dad’s face, he exhibited no less talent than Da Vinci painting the Mona Lisa.
Eerily enough, at the exact moment, somewhere in middle America there was an “Eskimo” family posing for photos to send their friends. They are all dressed in track suits. The kids are sitting in a shopping cart while the whole family poses in front of Wal-Mart.
Yes! But even then, the whole thing was actually photographed inside of a mall in Jersey.
If I was one of the pet foxes in this photo, I’d be hiding my face too.
I bet PETA is having a field day over this.
I actually kind of like this pic, it’s less awkward than most, but one word keeps going over and over in my head. MUSH!!!
I don’t know about all this … I think at least one of those coats still has a pulse. And somebody please tell me, is that man morphing into a beaver?
great comment, Patrick!
Oh my God! My parents told me my dog Rover went to live on a farm!
The glasses and braces really add to the whole ‘rugged’ feeling.
For some reason this made me burst out laughing. Gotta love Dad’s haircut, too.
looks like it coulda been any mall in Jersey… with fur…
Maybe they weren’t really in Alaska, they just told people they were……and to try to offer proof, this is the best they could do. But NOW we’re onto them….
no we did live in Alaska at the time
They lived in Alaska and actually stood in front of a picture of snow?? Couldn’t they just go outside? They’re probably sweating buckets inside that studio with all that fur.
Had this photo been taken outdoors, and not clearly in front of a photographic backdrop, it would not be awkward. As is, this family could live in Hawaii and had the same picture taken.
eww those furs are horrible…you can see the fox tails hanging
Actually, those aren’t tails but intact heads…. ewwww.
I love how the color of the coats matches the hair of the person wearing it.
That is one persistent hunter…
And now that this photo has become public, PETA will be breaking down their door and spraying them with red paint.
Did you own those furs or only rent them? WOW!
The Palins: Before
PETA would LOVE this one!
You can’t say Eskimos anymore! You mean dressed as Inuit!
Actually, it’s not PC to just call all Eskimos Inuit, either — there are lots of Eskimos who are not Inuit, like Inupiaq, Yup’ik, etc. Even saying Eskimo is way better than calling someone by their wrong dialect group.
Yes you can. Eskimos call themselves Eskimo.
In Alaska we just say Native, but saying Eskimo is not offensive either.
So it looks like Joel and Maggie finally got married and started a family……
Too bad they didn’t go with the package that included the Tauntaun. I bet they could have all fit.
Ditto..Holy Fur, how many poor animals had to be killed to cover this family up
They all died-fox are heavy smokers, menthols mostly.
And as the camera flashed, a low wail and gnashing of teeth was heard from every den and burrow within 25 miles.
Do you have a la sanz for those minkys?
“Why do you know so much about city ordinances?”
“What, are you bliiind?”
so this is how Sarah Palin started out?……………………….hahahahahahahahahahaha
So true. I totally agree
PETA would have a field day with this one!!! HAHAHAHA… I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said, “I love animals…. They’re delicious!” lol
There’s room for all God’s creatures…right next to the mashed potatoes!
My fav bumper sticker that I saw on a giant hummer once: PETA–People Eating Tasting Animals. 😀
sorry, that’s “Tasty” animals…..
If God didn’t want us to eat animals, he wouldn’t have made them out of meat.
Compared to what we usually see on this site, this is pretty tame. A little strange, but also kind of cute. At least they’re not in matching spandex dance outfits!
And they’re not monkeys!
The monkeys are underneath holding crossbows-their fur blends like camo!!!
Look out!!! Iditarod crossbow monkey ninjas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Can’t see ’em, can ya?)
I wonder if they owned all of this fur or if the photographer had it among his/her props. Either way, wow!
The photographer had them.
All of the PETA readers are plunking on the floor in a dead faint.
Peta’s founding members!!!!!!
fur the love of god!
Peta’s worst nightmare!!!!!
The funniest part about this photo is that it’s STAGED!
I see no evidence to support your accusation.
watch out for peta..their gonna get ya for that one!
don’t tell PETA this exists.
PETA would go ape-s*** on this portrait studio/photographer if they tried it in the lower 48 today!
i’m confused… do the parents have really short legs?… are they kneeling?… i can’t concentrate on anything else until i know this…
knee deep in ice cap snow. c’mon!
Somewhere the president of PETA is having chest pains.
Peta members all over are throwing ketchup at their computer screens right now!
Did the Eskimos take it personally?
Makes we want a Klondike bar….
Hey, if you’re living in Alaska, you might as well brag to your friends and family about it by going down to the photo department at Sears and getting a family portrait done.
“Okay, everybody… on three, say MUSH! One… two…”
I’m sweating just looking at this photo.
When The Chipmunks broke up, Theodore decided to start a family and move to Juneau.
Large quantities of dead animal!
