    They do eventually grow out of it. My 28 year old step daughter was going through some old photo albums and ran across pix of herself at age 14 or so in Hawaii (a treat from her doting great aunt) with her dyed black hair –complete with one hank right in front of her face, black eyeliner, black tights, black dresses, and black Doc Martins, along with a sour/bored/angry/pouty/teenage look on her face in each one. She looked at the pix and then asked, “What was wrong with me? What was I thinking? Who wears BLACK TIGHTS in Hawaii???!!!” Our response: “You tell us. We had to look at that mug every day.” Then she apologized. Vindication!!!!

    Woo Alexisonfire! :)

  3. Dan says:

    Is that masking tape?

  4. Gail says:

    I think the dad is happy that it’s only one more year till he’s free of that kid.

  5. YEah Baby says:

    Maybe he’s 18 and he’s mad because they reused last year’s casserole!

  6. matt says:

    That band on his shirt is actually really good, way to represent youngin!

  7. Uncuw Biww says:

    ah to be 17 again….

  8. ca2012 says:

    I think it’s some kind of dessert too, looks like cream on top with cinnamon or choc, maybe a tiramisu? Either way dessert ot main he’s not impressed!

  9. Justine says:

    OK, I think we’ve figured it out – it’s Marni’s son and he is TICKED OFF about the non-regulation size dish. I love teenagers! Last week mine practically bit my head off for singing along with the radio….then I mentioned his acne and he didn’t speak to me for 3 days.

  10. Kathy says:

    I think its a cobbler or something, looks like cinnamon on top, probably one of his fav’s. Looks homemade and who doesn’t love homemade. Yeah, blame the hormones!

  11. fireflight says:

    I remember that age… eww.

  12. Zandy says:

    What was in the wrapping?

    What‘s the DVD? Perhaps therein lies a secret…as for the t-shirt: Alexisonfire describe their music as “the sound of two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight” (a reference to their song “A Dagger Through the Heart of St. Angeles”)

    Happy birthday Kiddo.

  13. BeccA's Buzz says:

    Someone’s wish did NOT come true! That’s one attitude on that kid…I think the shirts say it all! :-/

  14. JAY says:

    Common’ guys, don’t you know TIRAMISU when you see it! Geeze, yous didn’t grow up in the old neighborhood did ya?

  15. carol says:

    He did NOT get what he wanted for his birthday!

  16. Amy says:

    Hmmm..for some reason that doesn’t look like cake or lasanga..My guess is pie and they used some template to leave the 17 on there when they spinkled cinammon on top..I prefer birthday pie over cake anyways since I think frosting is icky

  17. Kimber says:

    I thought it was the traditional birthday rice pudding?

  18. gibsongirl says:

    That kind of wrapping paper can cause seizures!!!

  19. IRa says:

    I’d say it’s tiramisu, yummy!

  20. MiamiGirl says:

    A deflated mylar balloon on the right, a Ross Noble DVD on the left, and your age written in pie crust? What’s not to smile about? This kid looks like my kid brother at the same age!

  21. JBoz says:

    Apparently the birthday boy isn’t much of a Ross Noble fan.

  22. Beth D. says:

    The cake looks like tiramisu and someone put down paper numbers, sprinkled with cocoa, then peeled the paper off. Well, that’s what I would do anyway.

  23. muse7 says:

    Birthday lasagna? I’m totally stealing that idea! Even if he doesn’t like it!

  24. DanielC says:

    Oh, teen angst. Isnt it grand?

    Just out of curiosity, is that a regulation size dish?

  25. marilee says:

    Classic Teenage Moment. “thanks mom and dad, now get out of my life’.

  26. Miss Jane says:

    This could very well go down as the most incredible depiction of EMO ever.

  27. Dee says:

    Ahhhh, teenagers! They are so ungrateful, even when be celebrated with tradition birthday tiramisu (at least thats what it looks like).

  28. magillicuddy says:

    This just says it all… like thanks Dad, for EVERYTHING.

    • meri says:

      I can almost guarantee this kid will APOLOGIZE to his father for this…right about the time his own kids turn into teenagers…

  29. Jak says:

    There’s somegthing completely perfect about this photo… in the future, the kid will be more embarrassed by this than any other, even the one of him on his little potty chair… gotta love Karma.

  30. Kit says:

    “You are 16 going on 17
    Baby its time to think
    Better beware
    Be canny and careful
    Baby you’re on the brink

    “You are 16 going on 17
    Fellows will fall in line
    Eager young lads
    And grueways and cads
    Will offer you fruit and wine”

  31. paul says:

    Is that a birthday lasagna?

  32. josh says:

    Happy Casserole Day!

  33. ThatOne says:

    “Cake is lame.”

    Is that cake or lasagne?

  34. Karen says:

    Ahhhhhh….teenagers. Their smiles just brighten the dreariest day!!!

  35. jersygrl1969 says:

    17 is such a lovely age! lol

  36. Melissa says:

    I love the Old Skool shirt! Dad definitely looks Old Skool. Also, are those pasta strips on top of the “cake”? Or is it a birthday lasagna?

    • teo says:

      After having stared at the picture for entirely too long, I think it is a cake and not lasagna. Looks like Mom covered up the shape of the 17 with strips of paper or something, and then sprinkled cocoa powder over the rest of the cake. Perhaps the kid is simply upset that she used this low-tech cake decoration method and didn’t spring for those sweet number candles most people use.

      • Anne says:

        I’m with you, teo, that is not a lasagne. It’s some kind of cake thing. But it certainly looks as though the kid is not appreciating it!

      • Be3t says:

        I am so happy to hear you say that. I was thinking, “If that’s a lasagna, no wonder that kid’s p.o.’ed. That sauce is way too brown!” Your theory makes much more sense. Now we can assume the frown is just because the world is just SO hard when you’re seventeen.

    • What the Frack?! says:

      The shirt is the “icing on the cake”. Or “cheese on the pasta”!

  37. awkward says:

    That casserole dish doesn’t look like it’s regulation size.

  38. Dude says:

    Old Skool vs. Old Skull

  39. emily says:

    what an adorable child………………….

  40. KJ says:

    Looks like someone was eating the uncooked cake batter and got a tummy ache…or he’s a teenager…one or the other.

  41. mis says:

    Awww, now who wouldn’t like a birthday lasagna?

  42. Eric says:

    Sorry Dad, I’m filled with so much teen angst that I won’t have room for the lasagna.

  43. Graziela says:

    Ah, to be a teenager again, mad at the world, ungratfeul and everything sucks!

  44. Ali says:

    Aw, that poor father. Can’t we just have a good time together son!!???!!!

  45. Slutcakes ;D says:

    That kid doesn’t look happy to be 17.

  46. HeatherW says:

    Although he specifically asked for a chocolate cake, Eric was yet again disappointed by the annual “Happy Birthday Lasagna”.

  47. trish says:

    I guess 17 isn’t as sweet as 16

  48. Lisa says:

    Nothing says “Happy Birthday” quite like lasagna.

  49. Jen Grant says:

    I don’t know what he’s so upset about. His dad is obviously kickin it Old Skool with that hip Birthday Lasagna….

  50. Kelli says:

    What is that? A cobbler?
