    They will all wish you away if you do not say Happy Birthday! Tell them how much you like them or you will end up in the TV with grandpa! (Reference to The Twilight Zone)

    Unbeknownst to everyone the Moperson’s were carrying around a pocket full of smiles. Pure evil genius on this most photographed day.

    There is absolutely NO way these kids are related.

    extras from the village of the damned!

    I hope we hear from the peeps in the pic. I want to know that their deep sadness was because of the horrible day at the portrait sitting; not a lifetime of unspeakable trauma that has disabled them from ever smiling again. If I don’t read that version of this pic, I’m afraid I will be having nightmares re: scary secrets. :-(

      I have laughed so hard at this pic and these comments!! I was debating about if I should chime in, and your request to hear from the peeps in the pic has inspired me. ha! This is my brothers and I from the early 80′s. None of us recall this being taken, sadly enough. Our consensus is that it was likely when we were getting passport photos done, and they decided it would be fun to do a group photo, but we were obviously done with the smiling part. We were recently hunting through old pics for a family photo album and came across this gem. Clearly, my mother was equally horrified by the glum photo and had hidden it away for many many years. ha!! You’ll be pleased to know that every other pic I have from my childhood is happy and normal… this one is downright frightening! But hilarious!! :) Hope that cures the nightmares!!

        Thanks Kim – for the picture AND the backstory!

      • ReginaPhalange says:

        Early 80s? Seriously? Between the boys’ shirts and pants and the haircuts, I would have sworn it was from the 70s.

        • Kim says:

          Yeah – I was thinking that too, based on the styles of the clothes!!! But we narrowed it down to ’80 or ’81. And yes, Mom was big believer in hair styling at home. I cut my son’s hair the other day and had a flashback to haircuts in the kitchen as a child. I quickly determined that I need to let that family tradition pass over this generation.

        Thank you, Kim, for your sense of humor, and your confidence. It’s great when we can laugh at ourselves and share that laughter.

    I think it’s a “Let’s see who can hunch the shoulders the most in a single act of low self esteem” contest. I’m still working on a better acronym than LSWCHTSTMIASAOLSE

    I think there is something evil behind this picture I truly do.

    Get the older kid a new belt. He’s lost so much weight that he’s punching new holes in the belt. Besides, he’s had that Davy Crockett belt since Kindergarten…
