    Readers all over have just stood in front of their full length mirror just to see if this pose was indeed possible . Admit it, you
    did too!!

  2. Celeste says:

    I was looking at that photo and I was thinking to myself “she must be double jointed.” LMFAO! 😀

  3. Jaymoon says:

    Expected a twist. Was not disappointed.

  4. Tracey Hughes says:

    At first I was thinking Holy Mother, but I totally get this now. Her hips are facing the wall and she’s looking back over, funny though.

  6. DrakeScott says:

    Mom always said, the key to a successful marriage is being flexible.

  7. JR says:

    I can do this…but then again I’m pretty flexible. Always have been. My mom has a picture of me as a kid doing this pose, only while lying on the floor.

  8. LisaP says:

    Pink wallpaper on red carpet – THAT’s what’s awkward… and remarkable!

  9. Elly says:

    Oh my gosh, that is the weirdest photo. I couldn’t even begin to try to recreate that pose. I have been laughing too hard at the comments to be capable of anything besides holding my sides and wiping away the tears.

  10. Marieange says:

    I just want to thank you all for making me laugh so hard I cried! I have never used so many tissues to wipe my eyes and reapplied makeup as much as I did while reading your comments, in my life! Just too funny.

    Who cares about the pics when we have so much wonderfully funny reading!?

  11. Layla says:

    The exorcist girl gets married!

  12. Rory says:

    If it helps you guys to figure it out, her bum is completely toward the camera.
    Great torso flexibility, though.

  13. Heidiann says:

    Jesus Christ!!

  14. Cat says:

    Really people? You think it’s hard to do this position?? I just did it ant it didn’t hurt at all!! Just stand straight (with you left foot more forward than your right) and turn your torso to the side, resting your hands at your hip as if you were holding a bouquet.
    Not that hard!!
    “Curves” is right, it’s only her dress making it look awkward..

  15. Stacey Nicole says:

    Well, I can actually turn both my feet all the way backwards, so this isn’t too awkward to me.

  16. Lilith says:

    This has to be the most awkward pose i have ever seen……….

  17. Trixie says:

    This is actually a pose that gets done in wedding photography all the time. The girl turns her back on the photographer. Then she twists her upper body around so that the top half faces the photographer. The only thing is that the LONG gown usually hides the awkwardness of the feet! I spent a year of my life that I won’t get back having brides do this…

  18. Kits says:

    If her shoe is on backwards, where are her toes? Besides, that is definitely an Achilles tendon.

  19. Cindy says:

    Um her shoe is on backwards duh

  20. SunKissedRyn says:

    either linda blair’s wedding day or a poorly put together robot

  21. Melissa says:

    I can do that (yes I got up to try it!) It doesn’t feel the greatest, but it’s not that hard. I think the photographer meant well when he/she wanted her to pose this way, but it turned out very wrong! Wonderfully awkward photo!

  22. bonzo says:

    If instead of facing forward she had turned her head away from the camera, she could have made it almost a full 360°, Linda Blair style — foot toward the left, legs and torso toward the front, chest toward the right, head toward the back…. Maybe it’s just Paul McCartney’s ex, clowning around.

  23. Janellionaire says:

    Aren’t pictures like this generally about showing off the awesome back of your dress? We didn’t need to see the back of this one honey.

  24. Mez says:

    nice pea soup

  25. Melissa says:

    Ahh, I get it. Her body’s facing away from the camera. Then she stepped back with her right foot and turned it out. Then she twisted her upper body and head to the left as much as possible. I should try that sometime.

  26. jamie says:

    Oh thank goodness… it’s her right foot, not her left! We’re coming back down now from the stratospheric heights of the weird, back to the merely awkward.

    Thanks for making my morning a little more surreal!

  27. Kerry says:

    She looks pretty flexible. Must have been a fun honeymoon!

  30. It’s surely a screentest for that nearly-made film “Bride of Exorcist”

  31. Teacher says:

    Oddly enough, I can turn both of feet around backwards and walk….triple-jointed in the knees…..

    • linny says:

      There is no such thing as being double or triple jointed.
      If you actually had “extra” joints, you’d look like a freak.
      Your joints are just much more flexible than most.

  32. oak says:

    Dear god, I JUST figured this one out. Her butt is pointing at the viewer.
    Makes so much more sense now…
    but is still freaky.

  33. mbf says:

    This isn’t awkward, it’s freaky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Margo says:

    I thought this was a silhouette of a pregnant bride until I realized she was turned and looking back….Gotta love those photos you are just so proud of!

  35. Bosco says:

    Come one come all to the most spectacular event of the year, yes that’s right folks Bendaroo our beautiful contortionist is set wed Pepe the human cannonball.

  36. Chris says:

    No way….this is the same as the scene from Spaceballs where Mel Brooks goes through the transporter thingy….he comes out, looks down and shouts, “My ass is on backwards!!”

  37. Ren says:

    it actually kind of makes sense..

    If you look closely (errr..), her lower body is facing towards the wall opposite the camera, and her upper body is turned back towards the camera. As if she was walking away and turning around to look at something.. but her dress is so shapeless that you can’t really tell what she is doing, and you just see the backwards foot.

    this is wonderfully awkward.

  38. This is not physically possible. There is a little person hiding under that dress, sticking out a fake limb.

  39. jog33 says:

    Weird how I’m craving pea soup right now.

  40. jog33 says:

    Why am I craving pea soup?

  41. theblackblackblackbird says:

    I know you won’t believe me, but just looking at this makes my back hurt. A lot.

  42. cko says:

    Ok…how many other people stood up and tried to re-create this pose?? Come on…admit it! I agree with Sarah though…I wonder if it is a physical disability?

    • Maddie says:

      I did. Ow.

    • Teetsee says:

      I tried it… and I think I pulled something.

    • Tucker says:

      LMAO. I totally just got up and tried to do this. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one.

    • Nicole says:

      There was a time in my much younger days that I could do this, actually. And didn’t even notice that I was doing it. She’s either naturally very flexible or a dancer who has trained herself to be this flexible.

    • Ganesha says:

      Look up Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. My best friend can walk forward with her legs flipped completely backward, heel-first. I’ll bet that’s what’s going on here.

      • Tm says:

        Hmm, if it was a physical condition and not a talent, I don’t think the photographer would have emphasized it like this. Then again, who am I to give the photographer the benefit of the doubt?

  43. binkymae says:

    Didn’t Goldie Hawn do this in that movie where she got some potion that kept her from aging or dying?

  44. Natty says:

    OK…I’m scrolling down, thinking this looks pretty normal, and then — FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HER FOOT IS ON BACKWARDS!!! Beyond awkward and into painful!

  45. Curves says:

    It’s not as bad as it looks. She’s just facing away from the camera and looking back over her shoulder – no amazing flexibility involved.
    Her dress is what’s giving the effect, making her look like her foot is on backwards.
