    I’ll tell you what I’m looking at: that red dress! Can’t… tear… my eyes… away… the lace… the pearls…

  2. Betsy says:

    The caption on this one just makes it that much better!

  3. Leslie says:

    This is by far one of my favorites! Those Sears family photos are a treasure trove of awkward, and this is no exception! Too funny.

  4. Skipping Lunch says:

    The baby looks like she was in the middle of the best nap of her life when they woke her up to take this picture.

  5. Mattteus says:

    we now return to The Littlest Bouncer!

  6. Ed says:

    Put a pipe in the litgtle girls mouth and you have a mad version of Popeye.

  7. bambooska says:

    Younger Kid: What? I didn’t want to be here. Do it fast! ¬¬

  8. wizzy says:

    this. is. priceless. lol – love the little girl. the one in red looks scared.

  9. Susan says:

    “DAD got to wear jeans!! Why can’t I?!??!” Looks like this is only the second time the little blond girl has ever put a damn dress on. YOU GO GIRL!

  10. Pookie says:

    What kind of evil photographer takes this photo?

    Thank you Lucifotographer!

  11. Jane says:

    The little one’s mad because she didn’t get to wear the flashy red dress and “pearls”–She obviously just tore the bow out of her own hair–I seriously hope everything turned out OK for this group

  12. jnmcnally says:

    Those young ladies definitely don’t like having their picture taken

  13. Lala says:

    dead on Zach Galifianakis, i swear! it’s gotta be him.

  14. JJ says:

    If looks could kill, we’d all be dead.

  15. The man is obviously pinching the hell out of himself to neutralize the pain of being photographed.

  16. Paul P says:

    It appears as if the photographer just threw out a compliment to the mom that the dad did not appreciate. And the daughter really did not appreaciate it.

  17. El & Mo says:

    Got brushes?

  18. mrsmarvel says:

    AND they paid for the prints!

  19. Starbelly says:

    This looks as if the two girls had a serious brawl, mom got in the middle of it and was overpowered by the girls but then DAD stepped in and took care of business. “Dammit! Your mother wanted a family picture! Now give her her damned family picture so we can all get the hell outta’ here!” Look at the girls red dress!

  20. binkymae says:

    The girls wanted to have bangs like their Daddy. Girls with head bands and a sweet facial expression get beat up at their school. The little blond with the “make my day” look is priceless!

  21. Whoa says:

    This is like that famous picture of Winston Churchill, where he looks pissed because the photographer snatched his cigar away just before the picture was snapped. Only here the photographer took everyone’s assault rifles away.

  22. Paul Metzger says:

    That littlest girl looks like she’s ready to attack the photographer. I think even she knows this is a very bad idea. LOL

  23. KJ says:

    As usual, mom is the only one who looks (kinda) happy about this idea.

    What in the world is dad doing with his shirt?

  24. Silk says:

    All this photo needs is a quad of compound bows.

  25. Alan says:

    Is that Hacksaw Jim Duggan??

  26. Katie says:

    Oh lord, I think I might have met these people before…

  27. Rebecca says:

    Wow… those are pretty miserable looks on the kids’ faces…

  28. Daisy says:

    Is that the guy from The Hangover movie?

  29. Amy says:

    Watch out for the little one, she looks pissed!

  30. taino sam says:

    umm.. i’m sorry…i …was …just…. never mind. i’ll ask someone else.

  31. bmj2k says:

    “Listen here Mr. Photographer, make us look good or I’ll pop you on the other side of your mouth.”

  32. mary says:

    Flannel and chest hair – it’s more than a woman can take.

  33. k says:

    My family is reading the Mysterious Benedict Society books. When we saw this photo, we thought the little girl looks exactly like we imagine Constance Contraire must look. Too bad this was taken so long ago (hopefully), otherwise they could cast her in the inevitable movie.

  34. likestolaugh says:

    Oh my LORD! ha ha ha…The man looks like he should be pointing a rifle at the camera…what’s with the hairy chest??

  35. Sabrina says:

    Looks like Zach Galafinakis!

  36. PaulaSaintO says:

    The little blond girl looks ready to throw down.

  37. Julia Pheifer says:

    I am reminded of the John Hiatt lyric “And the baby just sat there lookin’ mean.” (Trudy and Dave)

    • Sally says:

      So very rare to come across a John Hiatt refrence, and a good one at that. The pic reminded me of slow turning for some reason couldn’t put my finger on it at first, but then you nailed it

  38. Tim S says:

    I had to look and see if my studio’s logo was in the corner. I saw lots of looks like those. Dad doesn’t want to be here and he’ll make sure everyone is unhappy.

  39. jessica says:

    the dad is tearing at his shirt as though he is trying not to “hulk out”. it is every fiber of his being to control his anger.

  40. Brandi says:

    What a lovely looking family! (yikes)

  41. Shane says:

    Is that Zach Galifianakis?

  42. durhay says:

    Rowdy Roddy Piper and family. The little girl just ran out of bubblegum.

  43. Jamie Duncan says:

    looks like the picture was mom’s idea, and they were all revolting…LOL

  44. lauren says:

    Dad looks like Alan from The Hangover

  45. Hurley says:

    That little girl looks ready to pound someone

  46. BJSchild says:

    The photographer pulled the old “Smile for the duckie” routine, not knowing that Dad had run over and killed the family pet(a duck) just last week.

  47. Penny says:

    I cannot stop laughing at this picture. The littlest one’s hair. The look on her face. Her pose. I think she wants to bop me one in the nose. The red and white dress – wth, I don’t GET it. The guy. His hair.

  48. L says:

    Two words: Zach. Galifianakis.
    (Zach, please tell me you visit this site.)

  49. Awkward Fan says:

    Thank you, Awkward! The gift that keeps on giving!

  50. Pete says:

    is that Zach Galifianakis?
