Last we checked, being in a fraternity did not qualify as a talent.

Um..er…your geek is showing!
Can anyone see what’s being held by the boy in between the ballerina and the frat boy? (note to self: don’t type that too fast. almost typed “fart boy”)
To the left of the Frat Guy….there seems to be an extra foot in a ballet slipper, no!??! Does anyone else see that??? Whose is it!?
the kid next to the dad (holding his motorcycle helmet) is a GIRL and that’s her toe shoe that she’s showing behind the frat brother. this photo is too confusing and it took me reading through all the comments to finally understand who and what everything belonged to!
to the caption—yeah, neither does collecting stuffed animals (:
$100 says this family has been in line for America’s Got Talent
Where do I even start–the future Interpol cop holding a rat, the trombone-playing prima ballerina with all her stuffed animals, the insecure frat boy trying to be properly bourgeois but just looking like he didn’t learn to play an instrument, the two on the left sort of rocking out, and the lab-created parents. The redhead is the most normal one of the bunch. I am fascinated.
this gets an A for awkward.
A Brady Bunch replica perhaps?
and can someone explain the random suticase between them all?
It’s an instrument case. Probably for the flute.
Every flute case I’ve seen has been much smaller. My guess is that the mom likes to travel.
I’ve never known a family to have just one redheaded kid. I’m officially calling it: PHOTOSHOP
Loafers with no socks is not a talent, but still awesome
Well it’s OBVIOUS who the favorite is. Ballarina, trumpet player, and her teddy bears get front row seating? Let me guess…she even got to get braces too?
I love it!!!
sorry!! trombone…i need to brush up on my band instruments!
COMING UP NEXT ON “JOSEPH’S FAMILY”:
It’s a recipe for laughter when Denise’s JV soccer game, Robin and Daniel’s band concert, Steve’s varsity game, Robert’s fraternity induction and Melissa’s recital are all scheduled at the same time!
I think prop photos are the dumbest photos. The Pike has the right idea. He doesn’t need no stinking prop.
Maybe his talent is collecting those Teddy Bears next to him
As always, the caption is the best!
wait… wait… this is strange… there is a legless girl holding on for dear life to the brick wall she has been placed on. guitar boy is practically squatting, he’s so low. soccer girl is kneeling on naked bricks – i wonder if, as punishment, her parents make her kneel on rice? mom & dad don’t belong in this pic. there’s a floating helmet there, or an invisible child wearing a helmet. the ballerina trombonist in her toe shoes is the kind of kid you want to smack, she can do everything; is that a brother in a toe shoe up on the bench? or is that a sister? why is he/she wearing a sweatshirt instead of a tutu like the trombonist? and college boy is just too cool for words.
Didn’t see moms arm behind the troumbone at first. Thought she had a short arm that stopes at her waist with a hook on the end
It looks like someone is blacked out between trombone girl and frat boy. Look at shape that is in front of the little brother.
“What do you mean, beer pong doesn’t count?”
Looks like soccer girl and standing toe-shoe girl are holding scottish terriers.
or something similar to that breed at any rate…
the frat brother shoulda held a keg.. now theres a hobby lol
Alex P. Keaton, anyone?
The funniest thing is that with all the crap the dancing trombone player has going on, poor Bro Pike is barely holding on to an inch of real estate on that bench. The sockless loafer look is an interesting touch.
My uncle was a business school student in the early eighties. The sockless loafer was how business school students showed that they were “cool.” I guess we know Junior’s talent now – accounting.
Seriously, does ANYONE notice the other pointe shoe’d/shod foot, next to the frat boy? Looks like it’s floating? Please explain this to me, it could keep me up tonight…
WT* that is so creepy….. maybe the boy behind the bench is wearing it?!?!?! Damn thing is gonna give my nightmares now lol 😛
I think the girl behind him has her foot on the bench next to him. It’s dark so its hard to tell.
Oh dear, I didn’t notice that until you mentioned it. Creepy.
Susie: I do ballet and play trombone and make my own plush toys and. . ..
Mom: Susie, shut up.
Gosh, I can’t pick out the best part. The trombone ballerina? What’s going on on that bench – is that toe shoe attached to a leg? Whose? What about the squashed teddy bears? And is the girl above the bench holding a rat? What about the suitcase? Is Mom’s talent leaving the family? So many questions.
Seriously the mom looks like a cut out they stuck in there.
gotta ask, is the background of this picture a restaurant in new orleans?
What the hell is the kid next to the dad holding? I can’t tell what his talent is?
The Partridge Family’s Ivy League cousins …
It’s a perfect picture to send with the Christmas newsletter!
I find the caption SOOOO funny 🙂 Good job whoever that was.
Me tooooooooooooo! I actually DID LoL!
The girl in green is teaching her pet rooster to balance on a soccer ball….now,THAT’S talent.
….that’s why she’s not the dancer of the bunch lol
The youngest girl is making up for Frat boys lack of talent. She plays trombone and does ballet
Tromboning in toe shoes- Awesome!
I really hope she doesn’t take anyone’s head off while playing her trombone and pirouetting simultaneously!
And the flute girl has no feet!
Does the youngest daughter play trombone while dancing? 😀
I would kill to see a tromberina performance.
Ha! Tromberina! Best word mash-up ever! Sure, it’s fun until you pirouette and put someone’s eye out!
Tromberina–brilliant! I’m loving this site. I needed a good laugh after this morning when an old lady backed into and dented my previously undented car. Dang it, woman, LOOK before you back up!
I thought the trombone was the Mom’s
A photo of 8 random people. Nice.
In what way are they random people? It’s clearly a family.
Nearly every person is keeping their distance, different college shirts, different interests, no physical contact, You can get eight people off the street who exude more family warmth.
They’re not a family, they’re all future corporate officers and yacht owners.
and they dont really look alike, there are bonds and brunettes and then the random redhead????
Where do you see blondes? I see two parents backlit by the sun whose hair is probably white (dad) and some shade of brown-ish (mom).
Being in a fraternity isn’t a talent, unless you are in Pike
Give the guy a break, he is showing off his teddy bear collection!
AAAHHH! I know those people!!! I went to Lincoln with at least two of those girls. And they seemed so normal too…
The dude with the guitar is totally rocking his acid washed jeans.
I know it’s weird but any picture with more than about 5 people in it just confuses me. And then they’ve got props to boot!
Here’s the story. Fratty the Pike came home for the holidays and didn’t know we were going to be taking this picture, so he neglected to bring home his beer funnel and mad lady killin’ skills.
He also forgot his red plastic cup filled with Natty Bo, his talent for extending the life of his boxers by wearing them inside out for a couple of days, his ability to haze, and his skill at giving ridiculous nicknames.
You, my friend, know some frat boys. You are right on point.
Funny, the Pike chapter at my alma mater was full of the dorkiest guys in school. And I went to an engineering college where ALL of us were dorks. The Pikes were the guys that didn’t drink and had taken their sisters to the prom in high school.
At my school they were called pikas, and they were party animals. Now they’re all rich.
At my school they are the best guys to party with because they are just cool guys. I love my Pikes
At my school the pikes were known for drugging girls and severely hazing their pledges and ended up getting their chapter revoked.
I actually am a PIKE. Thank you seawitch because if anyone ever tried to get to know men in a fraternity, 90% of the time they will end up being friends with them. I guarantee the suitcase has never been in a Fraternity house other than during a party, if at all. Did you know that you are 15% more likely to graduate from college if you are in a fraternity or sorority?
Being a PIKE is one of my greatest honors, and I feel sorry that the antagonists never got a chance to experience Greek life.
COOL STORY BRO
At my school the pikes were known for making a homophobic homecoming float while Matthew Shepard lay dying at the nearby hospital, also drugging girls, hazing their pledges, and getting their university charter revoked.
Fortunately for them (and unfortunately for the rest of us) the fraternity president was an alumnus of the university, so their organization charter wasn’t revoked, and they still attempt to market their l33t girl skillz to freshmen who don’t know any better yet.
Yep, I love my PIKEs.
My little brother is a Pike. He always said it was one of the greatest decisions he ever made in college. Pike definitely helped him be more outgoing and meet new people!
hahaha that’s funny that you bring Matthew Sheppard into it, because he went to my school. Pikes at CSU are not Pikes everywhere, which you would know if you had an open mind. By the way wasn’t that like 12 years ago? Yet another snobby ram…
hahahaha they all look like a bunch of cardboard cutouts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well at least the ones standing up do !lol
whats up with dad ….. is he an equestrian or some kind of cop. i like the old buddy hollydo on john goodman with his guiitar
Mom’s talent is obviously organization and navigation, getting all those kids to all those lessons on time AND remembering to pick them up.
This one time at band camp, a girl with a flute…
Her sister has a trombone….
I can’t take my eyes off the trombone-playing ballerina, I had the same two hobbies.
WAIT!! does anyone else see the random extra ballerina leg/pointe shoe?? it’s up on the bench, beside the Fraternity Brother. it’s a hairy black half leg, with good pointe technique, but where does it come from????
