    Dana – it appears you and I had the only 2 copies of the children’s record that included the UNcensored version of Woody Guthrie’s song “Put Your Finger In The Air”; I just loved that song… So much so, that I tried to teach it to all the kids in my neighborhood. I had no idea that their parents would band together to have me sent away for help after they discovered what I was up to.

    This pic is so awesomely awkward – how did it get cut in the first place?

  9. eve says:

    You’re the winner in my book. This photo made me laugh so hard i cried, and almost fell off my couch. From one person who seems to live in awkward situations to another, well done(!) and please keep recording these moments πŸ™‚

    That finger went straight to the nose didn’t it!? Bravo!!

  11. Mischa says:

    If the Pointer Sister, the most awkward and enjoyable AFP ever, didn’t make the cut, how great must the ones that did?!?

  12. Juls says:

    Well done, Dana! Way to *point* out their loss. πŸ˜‰

  13. Chazlette says:

    Well, if you can’t publish Dana’s photo in your book the least you could do is hire her on your writing staff! She’s got hilarious talent and a great sense of humor.

  15. Cheryl says:

    What is she doing!!! I’ve heard of “digging for gold,” but this is over the top (or, should I say, “behind” the mark?)

    Dana, you are too funny! πŸ™‚ LOVE your email response!

    AFP ROCKS!!!

  16. once again says:

    She looks like is actually staring at the camera asking “Do you dare me?”.

  17. Dana's MOM says:

    Dana I am sorry that your 15 minutes of fame have been snatched from you. Don’t worry your akwardness will live on forever in my heart and I have full confidence that another opportunity will present itself……love MOM xo

  18. Alan says:

    ”OK,I’ve found the problem with your butt…’s cracked & got a hole in it”

  19. Robin says:

    Dana, I feel your pain. I got the same email from AFP today. Now I have to break the news to everyone I’ve told about it, some have already pre-ordered their books…AWKWARD! Your picture is HILARIOUS though!

  20. Mr. E. says:


    You are no stranger to taking leaps, and so I ask you to marry me.
    Let’s make awkward pictures together for eternity.

  21. Your Mom says:

    I want to be Dana’s BFF!

  22. Sherine says:

    Love people with a good solid sense of humor!

  23. chris says:

    Dana was a little behind when her mom said check the baby to see if he needs a diaper change…..

  24. andi in NC says:

    Dana – you are the goddess of awkward – love the response (not to mention the pic)!

  25. Dino says:

    Hire Her ASAP before someone else gets her

  26. Meghan says:

    Loved, loved, loved your response. Hilarious. If you are awkward, it is in an awesomely funny way.

  27. Jamie says:

    “Why, of course!” LOL! Love it Dana!

  28. Becky says:

    Dana, as it turns out… you are not awkward at all. Love it!

  29. candace says:

    I hope there is another edition of Awkward Family photos in the works.

  30. MollyMud says:

    Ha ha! Fabulous response & what a good sport you are! Though are you aware, that in England a ‘Fanny Pack’ is know as quite something different than what we know to be a bumbag?! πŸ™‚

  31. Celine says:

    Dana, you are awesome! Love the photo, love the response.

  32. Jeeps says:

    I just want to know if she still does the same thing today.

  33. Amber says:

    Oh thank you for the laugh! I love it when these pictures and comments are so hilarious that I laugh out loud when I’m home alone!

  34. bb says:

    this happened at my house this morning. another awkward milestone reached.

  35. Amice says:

    Dana, you’re too cool to be awkward!

  36. Dana you rock! PERFECT response! πŸ™‚

  37. cyndi says:

    baby’s got back!

  38. anne says:

    Oh Dana, you have raised (or lowered?) the awkward bar. Even the Russian judge would give you a perfect 10!

    • iLOLd says:

      Agree: In this crazy microwave-y internet world, just like that little Dutch girl, Dana gets no respect for holding back a natural disaster.
      I feel your pain, Dana. (sniff!) Thanks for doing more than just holding your own.

  40. webbie says:

    Dana rocks! And if this photo was edited out, I can hardly wait to see what was left in!

  41. mrs5180 says:

    L O L I needed that today–hilarious (her Sears comment instantly gave me the mental image of Deb posing Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite)

  42. El & Mo says:

    At least she prefers human contact. My daughter stuck her finger in our dog’s butt!

  43. JV says:

    Hilarious! Nicely done, Dana.

    I love this, “…. I have again failed and at the task of being awkward, the very thing she claimed was my ONLY β€œtalent”?

  44. Lindsey says:

    What a fabulous email response!

  45. CrunkVA says:

    Okay, sweetheart… that is NOT a scratch n’ sniff.
