    Help me out here, please: why is this entry called “The Situation”? What’s the reference?

    • Katie says:

      The Situation is a guy from the reality show called Jersey Shore. He calls himself The Situation and wants to be referred to as that. Since this family is from Jersey, it got titled The Situation

      • Brett says:

        Thanks for clearing that up, Katie!

      • Leela says:

        Clarification: The Situation is NOT from NJ. There is only one person on that show from NJ, and it was the one chick with long straight hair. I am very adamant in correcting people.

  2. Alonso says:

    His legs make me drool.

  3. Stephanie says:

    That chick should REALLY take a break from steroids! ; )

  7. broken doll says:

  8. LAURIE says:

    Ummmm…is Mr BONJOVI Hair borrowing Richard Simmon’s pants? πŸ™‚

  9. steve says:

    To top it off, it looks like they are leaning on a Plymouth K Car. The quintessential vehicle of the 80s.

  10. Trish says:

    Love this picture!

    When I was a teenager, I would have totally thought this guy was hot.

    I bet he liked Bon Jovi and drove a Camaro.


  11. Heidi says:

  12. Paulie1968 says:

    Look at that HAIR. No wonder there’s a hole in the ozone layer.

  13. john in co says:

  14. K says:

    If you see Dave Barry’s post on here and click on his name, it will take you to his site and there are recent photos there.

    What a GREAT photo! Takes me right back to high school…

  15. Dan Brennan says:

    Y’all need to find a lead-in to do a contest for the 1970s.

  16. taino sam says:

    betcha he wears Brut Cologne and has L.A. Gear Sneakers on!

  17. Jen says:

    When I first saw this I would have sworn it was Leif Garrett! Anybody else remember him from the late ’70s – early ’80s?

  18. K says:

    Is that a K car?

    • MOPAR_FREAK says:

      yeppers … A NICE RELIANT AUTOMOBILE…………what family didn’t have one… they were a staple of life in the 80’s like POP shoppe pop in canada and Cabbage patch Dolls, Neon Bracelets and JELLY SHOES :>

  19. bunny says:

    I just what to know what he’s doing now?

  20. Robin says:

    O-freakin-MG!!! His poor, less-cool siblings. They are basking in the reflected glory.

  21. Gina says:

    Ah! The 80’s androgyny has not lost it’s effect…. But I’m pretty sure the one on the right is a man. He’s pretty amazing.

  22. Bryan says:

    That has to be Mrs. Stoltenberg, HAS to be!

  23. Barbara says:

    What, Big Hair doesn’t get a mention? I wonder what he looks like now?

  24. Amy says:

    this is truly epic.

  25. Samantha says:

    I bet he smells of pina colada and aquanet.

    Way hot.

  26. funkychick17 says:

    I think it is a dude. And the woman next to him has this really smug look on her face like she is so lucky to be with him!

  27. Ali says:

    Oh this takes me back! I was so a victim of the fashion!

  28. John R. says:

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

  29. magillicuddy says:

    do they get a prize? like hairspray or something?

  30. Keyum says:

    omg!! YES!! i voted for this. hahahaha… but my friend and i are DYING to know what this dude looks like now!! please post a recent photo!! pretty please??!!!

  31. Sean Stewart says:

    He shaved his legs !!!

  32. Marcia says:


  33. ZBenson says:

    i believe that it is… scary…

  34. Throb says:

    Where are all the rest of the contest pictures at??

    And is this really the only post on this one???

    I must be lost or something.

  35. Angelique says:

    Hahahaha this picture just made my day and reminds me of the dust I have to remove in my house…

  36. Donna says:

    Best. Style. Ever. This has to have been taken somewhere in New Jersey, right? Please tell me it was taken somewhere in New Jersey…

  37. CB says:

    Too bad he’s not wearing the sunglasses that he’s holding……you just know they’re aviators, and would have contributed to the awkwardness. Maybe then I would have voted this pic, instead of the incredibly awkward “same-hair, white-outfit, cowboy-boot” couple that was runner up……

  38. Becca says:

    Was this picture taken in NW Pa., by any chance ? lol.

  39. Dave Barry says:

    Yes, I am a dude! I am actually the younger brother at about age 16-17 in this pic. Oh and no, I never shaved my body! I guess I grew out of my clothing fast! OK! I confess, I loved those red shorts! We had been living in Northern New Jersey at this time for about 7 years, and we’re visiting our hometown Oswego, New York where Jennifer lived πŸ™‚ I am now a tattoo artist in West Milford, New Jersey, if you click on my name, I believe it will take you to my site. We had a lot of fun with this contest. Amazing! how a little awkwardness can bring a family closer.

  40. Dave says:

    What really sucks is that he’s not wearing the big square or big round Ray Ban 1980’s glasses he’s got in his hand, which would have just topped off the whole, uh, androgeny of the whole getup and β€˜do! Oh, what a β€˜do! He was caught somewhere in between 80’s Hair Band and Professional Wrestler. Just my guess, but I bet he doesn’t dress that way anymore!

  41. alinicole says:

    Wasn’t it nice of the little girl on the left to loan that guy her matching red shorts for the picture??

  42. Derek says:

    The cast of the Adventures in Babysitting musical adaptation are taking the show on the road, apparently.

  43. Robyn says:

    Gym, tan, electric socket

  44. MikeZippy says:

    this HAS to be New Jersey.

  45. Lori says:

    Wow. Just Wow.

    Christmas Card?

  46. AmyG says:

    No, that is THE dude.

  47. Sean says:


  48. Valerie says:

    Oh my. There’s an 80s hair band missing a member somewhere.

  49. nkroupa says:

    O….M….G….. Yes, it’s a dude.

  50. jhuitz says:

    Is that a dude?
