    Discarded album shot for Nirvana’s In Utero album?

  2. Sean says:

    …and that is how a baby is born

  3. Tim says:

    OK, look at the baby’s face…even SHE knows this is so TERRIBLY wrong.

  4. Brian says:

    This is wrong on exactly 12 levels.

  5. Alix says:

    There is something very Georgia O’Keefe about this picture.

  6. SK says:

    Hold me close tiny dancer?

  7. The John Carpenter’s The Thing inspired portraits was, thankfully, short lived.

  8. Baby Shiva looks mighty surprised.

  9. iLOLd says:

    I knew that kid would get tired of those E*Trade commercials.

    (Milk-a-holic WHAT?)

  10. Mabel says:

    The caption is, uh, awesomeeeee!

  11. jnmcnally says:

    I think this is a cool idea for a photo!

  12. Rory says:

    Did the boy pee on the person holding him?

  13. Patricia says:

    Okay, that’s way more than 10 cm.

  14. Alan says:

    OK…..I’ve found a use for a Snuggie….cover this family!!

  15. Shari Northorp says:

    Ok. this is the Royal Dutch company’s version of a tulip, right. the child has a bursary to a good university right, free therapy fir the baby…. freud would love this…

  16. DaddysSister says:

    It’s like a Justin Timberlake: I can’t decide if I should laugh hysterically or be completely horrified.

  17. Bill says:

    Wow, that’s a bit “Georgia O’Keef-esque.” Perhaps the photographer was fresh off his/her shift at the meth lab?

  18. chris says:

    Perhaps they were all standing up facing the other way with the baby upside down and then fell into this position? It was supposed to be all of them reaching out to hug the baby until they lost their balance? The baby does look surprised!

  19. Joos says:

    Did anyone elise turn their computer screen upside down to look at their faces?

  20. dott says:

    I think I need some Pepto Bismol!

  21. Beth says:

    This looks like a blooming onion mate!

  22. Mav says:

    How much pain and discomfort did these people have to go through to get this picture – especially whoever is on the bottom?

    • jenny says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. How uncomfortable does it have to be for that girl on the bottom?

      I’ma go with *very.*

  23. shona says:

    The family that splays together……….

  24. Leah says:

    And…it’s a boy! Congratulations to the proud flower. Mums, maybe? Or mums the word?

  25. Eric says:

    So which one’s Mom?

  26. Mitzi T says:

    The ONLY plausible explanation for this is that the parents are in fact, dancers. It doesn’t make it right – just a bit less disturbing

  27. T.R. says:

    To much to compute.. brian is hurting..


    Would love to know the back story on this one.

  28. Troy Hopper says:

    I see these professionally posed photos and I can’t help but wonder, whose idea was this pose? THe photographer’s? THe subjects? The parents?

    Just put me up in front of a fake forest background wearing my Sunday best with a fake smile and take that damned picture

  29. gregorian says:

    Ahh heck it just hit me!
    I just thought the photo was a bit arty, then I looked at it again… all the pink bits. And then, ohh. OHHH! THAT’S what it is. How embarrassing.

  30. Suki says:

    Who’s the mommy?

  31. Scatologist says:

    I saw that thing in an “Alien” movie.

  32. Emily says:

    I NEED to know the story behind this picture

  33. Rev says:

    The original Octomom.

  34. MMB says:

    Reminds me of a horseshoe crab flipped on its back.

  35. David says:

    It had to have taken a few minutes, at least, for the arms and legs to get into proper position. That being said, top girl should consider herself very fortunate that “diaperless baby” didnt feel the need to void!

  36. tbickle75 says:

    Glad to see Anne Geddes has expanded beyond produce.

  37. carol says:

    I think it’s awesome!

  38. Heather says:

    two year old says “Maybe spider hold baby?”

  39. Mandy says:

    Um….is right! Is that a guy or girl on top holding the baby. There are no words to describe this. Its beyong awkward!

  40. Melba says:

    Think of the hours of practice this took. But still, the baby does not look secure or comfortable. Imagine the rejected shots from this photo shoot!

  41. Dime666 says:

    My only comment is…WHY? And “Because we can!” doesn’t count.

  42. Don says:

    What occurs when yoga, Pilates, P90X, and diaper changing collide

  43. hod says:

    there are 3 pairs of legs but only 2 pairs of arms!?!?!???????????? weird!

  44. spaz says:

    I’m hoping they had something funny written on their bottoms, and we’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  45. dennylou says:

    This is exactly what you think it is, but it is not the whole story. This is a dance group that actually interpreted sex, conception and birth through a dance routine. This photo is actually the end of the dance piece. I once saw the entire thing on Youtube. I would have included the url but I cannot seem to find it on youtube now. It is strange but from the beginning you realize what the ending will be.

  46. Bruce says:

    That is the strangest baby crib I have ever seen.

  47. Melzie says:

    O………………………M…………………………….G……………………………this is the beginning of years of therapy.

  48. Katie says:

    Um. I….uh….wow….what……..who….never mind.

  49. laurie says:

    They look like those shrimp things that attack the faces in that one scene in Beetlejuice.
