Help me out here, please: why is this entry called “The Situation”? What’s the reference?
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
Thanks for clearing that up, Katie!
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.
His legs make me drool.
That chick should REALLY take a break from steroids! ; )
mmmh, he’s hot!
There has to be a RATT cassette in that car’s tape deck. has to be.
Errr…I meant the left. All that hair is messing up my sense of direction…
Ummmm…is Mr BONJOVI Hair borrowing Richard Simmon’s pants? 🙂
To top it off, it looks like they are leaning on a Plymouth K Car. The quintessential vehicle of the 80s.
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.
*sings* Who wears short shorts!? lol
Look at that HAIR. No wonder there’s a hole in the ozone layer.
I second the now photo.
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…
Y’all need to find a lead-in to do a contest for the 1970s.
betcha he wears Brut Cologne and has L.A. Gear Sneakers on!
When I first saw this I would have sworn it was Leif Garrett! Anybody else remember him from the late ’70s – early ’80s?
My first thought too
He’s on that “worlds dumbest criminal” show now.
Is that a K car?
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 :>
I just what to know what he’s doing now?
He’s a tattoo artist….he commented above and provided a link…..
O-freakin-MG!!! His poor, less-cool siblings. They are basking in the reflected glory.
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.
Oh Administrators…. YOU know what you’ve done – but why such brazen censorship?
That has to be Mrs. Stoltenberg, HAS to be!
What, Big Hair doesn’t get a mention? I wonder what he looks like now?
this is truly epic.
I bet he smells of pina colada and aquanet.
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!
Hey! thats my sister, what do you think? I’m some sort of freak! ok don’t answer that. lol
Oh this takes me back! I was so a victim of the fashion!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
do they get a prize? like hairspray or something?
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??!!!
If you go up to Dave Barry’s message it is him and you can see what he looks like now!
He shaved his legs !!!
I LOVE IT!!!! TOTALLY AWESOME!! 🙂
i believe that it is… scary…
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.

Hahahaha this picture just made my day and reminds me of the dust I have to remove in my house…
Best. Style. Ever. This has to have been taken somewhere in New Jersey, right? Please tell me it was taken somewhere in New Jersey…
Not taken in New Jersey. But we were living in NJ at the time.
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……
Was this picture taken in NW Pa., by any chance ? lol.
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 🙂 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.
Awesome. Enjoyed the site – what’s up with the ‘no growth hormones’ guy?
Right? I saw that too!! Under Tribal! Dave, glad you grew out of that stage! 🙂 Thank you for sharing your story and putting us with your link to now! I think this picture calls for the awkward remakes. 🙂
Dave! You rock!
love seeing the then and now. I always wonder how the “awkward” people turn out.
That’s all well and good Dave, but we all want to know what happened to your totally hot big brother!
what do you mean by big brother? I’m am the big one. but the younger of the two. hehe! My older brother lives out west.
Dave: I went to Highland High with Sue. How’s she doing?
I would have SWORN you were Leif Garrett!!
Yep. New Jersey. 😉
Damn – you were built for age 16-17! Great thigh muscles. I kind of like the tattoo-free innocence.
Okay, I checked out your website and you are extremely talented! Wow! (And you have sexy eyes!)
Dave – was your hair permed here? I think people are so distracted by your 16 yr old physique that they miss the HAIR!
Absolutely gorgeous tattoo work!
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 ‘do! Oh, what a ‘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!
Wasn’t it nice of the little girl on the left to loan that guy her matching red shorts for the picture??
The cast of the Adventures in Babysitting musical adaptation are taking the show on the road, apparently.
Gym, tan, electric socket
this HAS to be New Jersey.
That is EXACTLY what I said when I saw this picture – only in NJ could a guy get his hair that high AND have no other hair on his body.
haha great thana
Wow. Just Wow.
No, that is THE dude.
Oh my. There’s an 80s hair band missing a member somewhere.
O….M….G….. Yes, it’s a dude.
Is that a dude?
In the 80’s that is a dude. These days…probably not.
ohhh yeah………. got to LOVE the 80’s BABY…………
I was just about to ask the same thing! LOL
Yes, I take it you were not into Bon Jovi in the 80’s?
If that is a dude, then that dude has some sexy looking legs.
