    i think i know this family…. *facepalm*

  2. susie says:

    I have a nephew that does that with his eyes whenever there are pictures taken, but his mouth is normal. He’s 16 and you can look at his pictures through the years and his eyes are always opened really wide. I don’t know if he thinks he’s going to squint because of flash and tries to compensate.

    Hahaha! That is so cute!

  4. Shannon O'Donnell says:

    i dont get the caption for this? x

    • JohnnyDollar says:

      It’s from the movie Spinal Tap. There’s a scene where a guy is talking about a speaker that “goes to 11″ for when you really want some ooomph. At least I believe this is a play on that. :-)

      • Sarah Jo says:

        Totally a play on Spinal Tap…..”found an amp that goes to 11, all the others only go to 10″. Wahahahahaha!

  5. Missy says:

    Jean Shepherd’s inspiration behind “A Christmas Story”. Little Randy would have to be toned down to a simple uncontrollable laugh however, this smile kind of freaked Jean out.

    • Nerd says:

      Wow I commented above about how he looks like Randy. I didn’t think anyone else would have reached the same conclusion independently, too funny!

  6. Arianna Vander Weele says:

    ….I think the dad is my high school Government teacher from senior year…

  7. VZG says:

    My parents should be glad after I show them this — they had trouble getting me to smile in photos when I was younger, but if they had bugged me about it just a bit more, I probably would have turned into an oversmiler too!

  8. Chris M says:

    That’s hilarious! Also a shame, because it really would have been a totally non-awkward nice photo.

  9. carol says:

    too cute!!

  10. Jak says:

    It’s howdy DOOdy TIME,
    It’s HOWdy dooDY time…

  11. JessicaP says:

    I LOVE this photo :) It made me smile too.

  12. Sydney says:

    Haha, I started by looking at Mom and went clockwise. I was like “Ok, normal, normal, normal, HOLY CRAP!”

    Lol. That is pure win right there.

  13. Ariel709 says:

    I still don’t get the 11 and 12 part… I feel kinda dumb!!!

  14. Gigi says:

    OMG! I just spotted a rat as big as a cat!

  15. Wow says:

    I guess moms everywhere are right. It actually WILL freeze if you make a silly face once too many times.

  16. Kazz says:


    Looks like someone consumed two tons of sugar before the family photo.

    Bonus points for the random floating cows on his shirt.

  17. sallyomalley says:

    OMG!!! I love it! He looks like he’s in a wind tunnel.

  18. lisa says:

    so lets summarize:
    Mom is channeling Darla (from the little rascals)
    Dad is channeling Steve Zahn
    Bro is channeling Marisa Tomei

    The Kid is channeling Alfalfa
    and was also the body double for both Wallace AND Grommit!

  19. Alicia says:

    We absolutely need to arrange some sort of introduction for this little boy, and the original oversmile girl. Hopefully, they’re around the same age, and will hit it off.

    The glare from the shining oversmiles of the resultant children will be epic. Perhaps it can be harnessed as some sort of temporary-blindness weapon…

  20. william says:

    I love this. What a thing for family and friends to have a laugh over for a lifetime, we have similar pics as well.

  21. coNNie says:

    Dad’s tie knot makes the boy look like he has a cow-lick.
    Alfalfa is that you?

  22. Elizabeth says:

    I bet they had that hanging in the main hall. Too cute.

    • Casey says:

      Actually you’re right, though it sits amongst others in sort of a best-hits collection. This is the one that gets the most laughs from people on their first visit to our home.

      • Freckles says:

        Casey – this is my favorite photo on the whole site. It would be hilarious if everyone posed again exactly like this in the same pose (a modern-day version) and the oversmiling boy (now a teenager?? man??) gave the EXACT same facial expression. And then you have to submit the new photo here again. PUH-LEEZE!!!!

        • Ted says:

          Let’s do it when we’re together this summer. For extra fun, I could grow another awful mustache and Casey could get two teeth removed. :)

  23. “Cheeeese, Gromit.”

  24. Noneya says:

    How cute is this? I love it.

  25. Denise says:

    Eventually you just give up. My 3 year old has been doing this in photos for the past 6 months or so. EVERY time. It’ll be hilarious later. Right now, not so much.

  26. Jay says:

    LMAO good god I need to stop looking at these pics at work :)

  27. pittipat says:

    He’s just making up for his lack of teeth.

  28. Kristen E says:

    This one made me giggle more than any others I’ve seen lately. Probably because I’m spending so much time with my 3 boys!

  29. tiasharon says:


  30. Meg says:

    The dad looks like Steve Zahn!

  31. LAURIE says:

    hahahaa…I think the little toothless boy looks like Alfalpha from Lil Rascals fame…CUUUUTE!

  32. Mah says:

    This was part of his portfolio in auditioning for the role of Alfalfa in the next unnecessary remake of The Little Rascals.

  33. Snowrider says:

    YIKES!! I’ll bet the photographer was wearing a clown suit….. *shiver*

  34. Kristin says:

    The old brother looks like Marisa Tomei to me. Which I realize is odd.

  35. Richard says:

    he was just told he would be getting dads adams apple when he grows up.

  36. I read the heading then started slowly scrolling down. Nice, nice, nice, WTH?

  37. Susan says:

    Thanks. I just peed my pants.

  38. Katie from Boston says:

    The little boy kind of looks like a ventriloquists’s dummy…which makes the idea of mom and her hand placement a little suspect.

  39. Kathy says:

    OMG!! That is hilarious!!

  40. Sparky says:

    The youngest reminds me of Alfalfa from the Little Rascals…..wish his hair was gelled to a point!! LOL!!

    • lisa says:

      Yes! Alfalfa!
      (plus his mom looks a little like Darla!)

      This is THE BEST awkward Family Photo I have ever seen. I will buy the next book if they put this pic in it!

    • Nerd says:

      I was going to say he reminds me of Ralphie’s younger brother from A Christmas Story (I think his name is Randy)… but Alfalfa kinda works too

      • OH2OR says:

        YES! I opened the comments on this one because I KNEW, I just KNEW that I wasn’t imagining the uncanny resemblance. That kid went home and hid under the kitchen sink, I just know it. Then he played with his mashed potatoes at dinner.

  41. binkymae says:

    “If you smile really big, the tooth fairy might bring you some new teeth tonight.”

  42. Nick says:

    Great photo. It’s like a modern family with a 1960′s TV sitcom kid in it! LOL

  43. Jamie says:

    I don’t know which is more awkward…his smile or his shirt!

  44. Dawn says:

    nice cow shirt

  45. BJMallory says:

    Mom whispers through clenched teeth as she pinches Junior’s heinie, “Smile, dammit…”

  46. Stephie says:

    He’s seen the massive set of chompers older bro is sportin’ and is practicing for when his gargantuan permanent teeth grow in.

  47. zonkers11 says:

    Oh, man, this one made me LOL til it hurt, awesome!!!
