    Vulcan Grip X 2…Coming up! Well played child, well played.

  2. Chris says:

    This looks like it could be the DVD cover for the movie Problem Child! With that devious “I didn’t do anything,” smile.. He kind of reminds me of the kid too.

    Read It and Weep! That’s genius! Hahaha!

    “Moe Howard, The Early Years”

  5. Josh says:

    If you notice the boy’s hands are not resting on his brothers’ shoulders. Notice how his hands are positioned, he is giving them nasty nerve-pinch holds. If I was in that kind of pain, I would be crying too!

  6. T. Cee says:

    it’s the only logical thing to do-Vulcan Nerve Pinch, family style

    this has got to be the cutest picture ever.

    He has a thumbtack on each thumb, obviously.

    The poor little tykes knew that on the count of “three” big brother would knock their heads together, and the photographer was already on “two”….

  12. Bilge says:

    Aww. . . . pressure points and perfect timing

  13. merf says:

    i am a twin with an older sibling. a picture like this means the older one caused the crying and is now making a face to hide the guilt! (no actual physical contact necessary, older sibling mind games will ruin your whole day, let alone your family photo)

    • Brian says:

      Exactly.. that grin is definitely the ‘I’m as innocent as an angel, but guilty as sin’ grin (you know he bounced the smaller kids’ head’s together or something just as sinister just before the shot). This is almost surely a guilty smile.

    lil’ tan shirt is gonna ruin his best velour shirt when that kool-aid drool rolls off his lip…

    Alternate album cover for “Synchonicity” by “The Police”.

    If I was the mom, this one would be on my wall in a frame! Thanks for sharing.

    Vulcan NECK PINCH… lol

  19. June P says:

    I love IT!!!!!!!!!

  20. Larry Geiger says:

    I have two little brothers.
    Been there, done that.

  21. June says:

    I think the older child is a girl, possibly the Emily who submitted the picture.

  22. Danielle says:

    He’s probably not even related, he just photobombed them.

  23. Big brother’s face: PWNED!

  24. Modine says:

    I’m so creeped out by the Stepford-esque older brother. No Vulcan would ever smile like that. Would they?

  25. Ali says:

    One out of three ain’t sad.

  26. Bosco says:

    Chuck Norris would be proud, a double choke hold at such a young age!!!

  27. Dee says:

    This picture is comedy gold. Almost as good as the one with the guys posing with their dad and the family cat. 😀

  28. Daisie says:

    The day little Johnny and his brothers learned about pressure points.

  29. Jamie says:

    It looks like the brother is pinching their shoulders. Bully, LOL!

  30. Kelly says:

    I love this, nuff said

  31. Noneya says:

    One of my favorite pictures.

  32. DodieA says:

    I’d be pretty upset about those outfits too. Who buttons all the buttons when paired with shorts like those? Matching shorts at that, so you know it was on purpose. The older one’s hair is creepyly perfect.
    I do like though, that back in the day the picture was snapped whether the kids were crying or not. I can appreciate the reality in that.

    • Beki says:

      Lol, you know there was a line at the church’s photo night, too, so the guys was like, whatever, we’re snapping it. I bet Mom and Dad were loving the proofs.

  33. LAURA says:

    The Vulcan Death Grip in effect.

  34. Ellie says:

    The older kid is just used to hearing his brothers scream like that–he’s learned to tune it out. I have an older boy and twins, and I could take this exact picture (minus the bowl cuts), I’m sure.

    Aahhh-the magic of stereo-no woofers, only tweeters
