    Looks like a mangrove, not a swamp.

  2. pk says:

    she got that as a baby shower present, not realizing it was the liner for her new diaper genie.

  3. RHB says:

    …the proud eventual parents of The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

  4. m says:

    My wife and I took the same photo while she was pregnant. Except my wife wore white trash bags and we were a little farther away from the sewage treatment plant spill over area.

  5. Tim says:

    Ad thus was “Swamp Thing” born…

  6. Chris says:

    ….taking the side hug one step further with the side kiss!

    Saran wrap. How…clever.

    I baptize thee in the name of Oscar the Grouch.

  11. Dan Brennan says:

    The swamp queen of the planet Seti-Alpha-Nine offers her traditional welcome greeting to Jean Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise.

  12. Sally says:

    Mother: Mom, Mom, we’ve finally figured out the perfect name for the baby! It’s classic sounding yet modern, unique but not too far out there. It’s perfect!

    Grandmother: What is it, dear?

    Mother: Malaria!

    Once in a while there is a pic that is so bizarre on this website that I shake my head in wonder. This is one of those pics. BTW, the blue plastic bags are a nice, eco-friendly touch.

  14. LuLu says:

    At least they went with the designer blue trash bags. Black would have just blended in with the background, but blue trash bags really make the scene pop!

  15. Megan says:

    My reaction was, “What on God’s green earth?”

    And THEN I realized how appropriate my phrasing was.

  16. commenter says:

    Well if this primordial ooze was good enough for their great, great, great … great, great grand amoebae, its good enough for them, too!

  17. luckybug says:

    That’s not a swamp. That water’s so clear you’re looking at the bottom of the creekbed.

  18. Stacey says:

    The photographer said “wouldn’t it be cool if you were wearing a sarong wrap”
    She heard “wouldn’t it be cool if you were wearing Saran wrap”

  19. Joanne says:

    It’s so hard to find a good maternity bathing suit these days….

  20. PaulW says:

    “Give me a kiss so we can both turn back into frogs.”

  21. maz balantyne says:

    i think its more likely about to be some kind of baptism…….and…..DUNK!

  22. leeleelew says:

    I am laughing more at the comments than the picture!!!

  23. Jak says:

    Awkward in a sweet, sweaty kinda way…

  24. LisaPizza says:

    When I was pregnant, I was told to not change the litter box because parasites could harm the baby. I can’t imagine all the little beasties crawling around a swamp. (And don’t say swamp water is cleaner than municiple tap water.)

    • Unmentionables says:

      Technically, the reason you were told not to change the litter box is that cats are one of the mammals that carry Toxoplasma, a parasite that can cross the placenta. Most organisms can’t do that, so there’s nothing necessarily explicitly harmful to the *baby* in that swamp water. A health risk for her? Sure. A bigger health risk than a busy commute to work? maybe not.

      • John R. says:

        Aiiiee. As someone who’s lived in an area with many streams, I gotta say, I think that’s what it is … not a swamp. A shallow stream.

  25. Cari says:

    Is he wearing black socks, or is the water that dirty?

  26. Laura H says:

    Who is there with them taking the picture? They should leave the creatures of the swamp alone. Don’t you humans understand they just want to be left alone. They are geting ready to spawn mermaid child.

  27. Catherine says:

    The funny thing is, she’s gorgeous! She really is beautiful, baby belly and all. So I guess if anyone could rock the Glad-Wrap-and-Everglades look, it’s her.

    • Jon says:

      “Beautiful, baby belly and all”? Many men find pregnant women all the more alluring.

      • eko says:

        LOL – like a baby belly would ever be considered less than beautiful. Whatever…makes me realize what an awkward world it is with comments like this.

  28. MusicGal says:

    Ridiculous setting and costumes aside, that kiss just looks so awkwardly staged as well.

  29. wonderment says:

    Amazing how “taste” is so subjective. Never thought about staging a shot like this one!! LMAO.

  30. Bruce says:

    That gives the term “A bag lady” a whole new meaning.

  31. George says:

    Is she supposed to be a mermaid? Apparently he didn’t get the costume memo…

  32. DrStrangelove says:

    but then again, it looks like it’s too late for that!

  33. zipper says:

    And nothing quite so sexy and romantic than a blue hefty trash bag.

  34. Kim says:

    So she’s all in this mermaid getup thingie and he’s wearing his gym shorts with a little undie band showing?

  35. That Girl says:

    garbage bags? really? and what are those brown, floaty things??

  36. Chris N. says:

    I guess she’s got all her bases covered – if her water breaks, she’s wrapped in plastic standing in a swamp. Now that’s what I call a plan.

  37. Perry says:

    What the…? Really?! I’m speechless…..

  38. Fanboy Wife says:

    Does this confirm the myth that girls can get pregnant when they go swimming?

  39. Holly says:

    I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. And . . . are they supposed to be kissing? She’s just . . . well . . . dang, I just can’t get past the blue plastic.

  40. John R. says:

    Maybe it’s because I’ve had a couple of drinks, but … there’s something kinda artistic and interesting about this photo.

    Yeah. It’s because I’ve had a couple of drinks.

    • Steph says:

      No, I see what you mean. Without the guy screwing it up, it could actually be a beautiful pose. The swamp is still highly awkward, though.

      • mrs5180 says:

        Yeah the idea is good–would be awesome on the beach–musta been the only water in the locality LOL

      • John R. says:

        Actually I think it’s a shallow stream, not a swamp. You can see some flow, there. It’s the moss-covered rocks and heavy plant growth in the background that make it look like a swamp.

        My god, why am I defending this photo? She’s wearing garbage bags!

  41. sally says:

    I see nip, UGH!!! Thats the problem with the cheap trash bags, just not as much nipple coverage as the high dollar name brand bags.

  42. Amanda says:

    Seriously? I’m sure the child born to this awesome couple will be proud to share this photo to friends one day. Time to take out the “trash”!

  43. sbb says:

    scary thing is, most likely, someone is making money from taking these types of photos ;-)

    was the plastic bag some garbage they found wrapped around a tree? :-)

  44. Jillian says:

    What the what? I’m pretty sure that’s organza, but it looks like cheap garbage bags. I’m kind of afraid she’ll end up with malaria or west nile virus standing in that nasty water…

  45. Pamela says:

    (Baby) Jeremiah was a bullfrog!!!

  46. klh says:

    Is she being recycled later?

  47. SteveB says:

    I wish they would have shown later frames — the ones where the alligators started to chase them. That was funny.

  48. Mark says:

    Hefty. Hefty. Hefty.

  49. jane says:

    so i’m thinking maybe they are environmentalists and the plastic bags represent their clean up efforts.

  50. Mol says:

    WOW! She is really into that kiss! Lean back and pucker up baby!
