    I think that is Randy from Trailer Park Boys

    “Hey kids! Daddy’s home!”

    Maybe it’s their Christmas card sans the letter. It’s saying: Our family is so happy. Yes, Bob is still working for the bottled water company. Yes, I’m still modeling dresses in the Sunday Coupon section. Little Bobby is working on a ventriloquist act with his new dog, Mr. HappyPants. Then there’s Sarah. uh….she got new shoes?

    • just sayin' says:

      Mr. HappyPants? I want to go get a new dog just so I can name him Mr. HappyPants! I looove the way the dog is smiling.

  4. Lilly says:

    the kids kind of look like the dog, with their expressions, I mean

  5. colorado says:

    i think it’s lovely how the mothers coffee mug perfectly matches her gown…. oh wait that’s her hand in her awesome pocket. so casual yet so confident. I love her and the picture.

  6. MCR says:

    This looks like an outtake from an advertising shooting session. Clearly, it was shot with a water-resistant camera!

  7. campcook says:

    A triumph of modern advertising! How’d they find a dog that can deliver an insincere smile like everyone else?

  8. sallyomalley says:

    Things that make you go…hmmm?

  9. The Water Man Always Rings Twice.

  10. Penny D. says:

    If my husband were a delivery man of some sort, I’d totally take a picture like this. I’d have made him put his hand on my butt, though, just to make it slightly more uncomfortable for everybody.

  11. You would think that woman was Debbie Boone and that water bottle was God. (now get the song You Light Up My Life out of your head)

  12. Bob said he would carry no man’s water… but then in this economy he realized he was in the wrong.

  13. AWBBB says:

    It’s a professional image – you can see that it has been artificially lit. Regardless, got to love that “moment” going on between Mom & Waterman…

    • JS says:

      You say it’s been professionally lit, but then there’s that awful green lighting residue on the bottom of the page… not sure what to think about that one.

  14. bubbbrubbb says:

    No more Mailman/Milkman’s Kids. Say hello to the Waterman’s Kids.

  15. carol says:

    Just look at the light in her eyes!

  16. Denise says:

    In my day Mum waited for the MILK MAN…Today I have to wait for the WATER MAN! BUT the Postman still knocks twice for me!!

  17. Patty says:

    Everybody looks so happy :)

  18. Jeeps says:

    Funny how the kids look a bit like him as well. I wonder how she explained that to her husband

  19. CarrieM says:

    These people look like they’re made out of wax.

  20. Leslie says:

    I agree…good face :)

  21. Chemgirl says:

    Agree with Zach – oversmile with slight wink in the eye…you KNOW the waterman’s delivering something gooooood.

  22. Noneya says:

    This pic looks like a promo. Does dad work for Culligan? The kid with the dog is great. He’s a cheeky monkey.

  23. taino sam says:

    move over maytag man. here comes a REAL man!

  24. Parkdad says:

    Would have been a great little subliminal message if the kids had black hair like the delivery man.

  25. Chad says:

    Was Dad taking the photo?

  26. TwistedSista says:

    Looks like an ad.

  27. Zach says:

    The boys face makes this picture awesome! Not awkward though…

  28. WP says:

    I love this one! It’s awkward but happy!

  29. Paulie1968 says:

    “Ok, children, time to run along and play now. Mommy’s gonna be busy for awhile!”

  30. veluxx says:

    Billy was never the same after he had the stroke.

  31. madame ruby says:

    I like how the boy and the dog are making the same facial expression. Best friends!

  32. B says:

    it looks like a norman rockwell painting in picture form.

  33. Nark says:

    Those kids kind of look like the waterman.

  34. LC says:

    Love the grins on the boy and his dog. ;)

  35. ConchordsFan says:

    That waterman is Randy from Trailer Park Boys!

  36. Kathy says:

    who doesn’t?

  37. mamasmilkman says:

    Yep, and they get to see “dad” every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of ever month.

  38. MyMorningJoe says:

    lol thats a cute pic

  39. Snowrider says:

    “Ummm gee, I really need a new bottle of water but uhhh it’s sooo heavy. My husband usually installs it for me but he’s out of town on business. Do you think you could help me out? Why sure Mrs. Robinson, just let me take my shirt off first ’cause I certainly don’t want to get it all sweaty! Kids, here’s ten bucks…go buy yourself some ice cream. YAYYY, Thanks Mom!” *que heavy bass and twangy guitar music*

  40. Nicole says:

    Notice that she put the kids and the dog outside on water delivery day.

  41. Meg from Ga says:

    LOL! Even the dog is smiling!

  42. Snowrider says:

    Strange…the kids have mom’s hair color but The Waterman’s facial features.

  43. Imma HotMess says:

    When the water delivery man comes calling Mom shooes the children outside to play with the dog.

  44. jnmcnally says:

    This has to be an advertising photo. Otherwise, I hope Mr. Waterbuyer doesn’t read this site!

  45. Melissa says:

    Hey Culligan Man!

  46. Joe Terranova says:

    Is this for real or just taken from some ad?

  47. Becca says:

    The boy and the dog have the sme smiles……

  48. Harry says:

    This even makes the dogs day

  49. durhay says:

    Hey Culligan Dad!

  50. Jamie Duncan says:

    and so did the little boy? What is the picture all about? It’s hilarious! I’m guessing it was a commercial shoot or something?
