    Even more awkward; He put this on a dating site as his picture.

    GREEN SCREEN mess-up! She was wearing green….obviously! LOL

    • Jennifer says:

      LOL….I really have no idea, but the green screen thing happened at my babies’ 1st bday party. A kid wearing a green shirt came out as just a head!!! RFLMAO

  4. Kate says:

    she may also have shopped herself out of she didn’t like the way she looked…

  5. diane says:

    What is with the freakish feet near that kid’s foot? So not only do we have a mysterious hand, but a calf and foot!!!

  6. Sassy says:

    I’m waiting for someone to come along and say NOT PHOTOSHOPPED

  7. Tiff says:

    This has happened to me before! basically the picture got wet and stuck to something so when when I tried to pull it off this was the result.

  8. Tiffani says:

    Next time on Sick, Sad World…

  9. Jeff says:

    Maybe Mom was hit with a crossbow.

  10. Hamster says:

    And that’s when Mom realized that taking the Delorean to back before her parents met was a really bad idea.

  11. John says:

    I have two theories: Family was Disapparating together and mom got splinched… or… the photo was taken before mom could finish beaming down from the USS Enterprise.

  12. Abby says:

    I went through a nasty, nasty divorce. After 10 years, we still hate each other.
    Having said that….This picture is HILARIOUS! The poor photoshop is the very definition of passive-aggressive.

  13. Aznii says:

    This is disturbing on SO many levels…

  15. Cee says:

    Why would someone want to edit someone out of their photos? Despite the water under the bridge between the couple, they were once upon a time part of the same family. Think how those kids feel, looking at this family photo, where mom is nothing more than crudely edited pixals.

    Rex Kwan Do!

  17. powermuffin says:

    I wish these people were my neighbors.

  18. Mamacrab says:

    And why was the word “patriotic” changed to “America-y” in the caption ? This whole thing is just so inexplicable. Someone explain so I can sleep tonight!

  19. Mamacrab says:

    But why does the whole body of the woman look so strange??? The head is missing and the body is made of little squares?? Is that a photoshop function or what?

  20. Ardee says:

    Looks like dear old Mom discovered a rift in the space-time continuum right there in the front yard

  21. Don says:

    In an effort to understand this photo, I suddenly find myself pondering the lyrics to “American Woman”…

  22. leonie says:

    That is SO weird…Why go to all that trouble? Just stick a smiley face sticker over her head and be done with it! Eww. “Daddy, what happened to mommy’s upper body??”

  23. Stacey says:

    There’s an extra foot, too.

  24. bethany says:

    pixilated and beheaded? must have been a nasty split

  25. misha says:

    She must be out celebrating her independence….

  26. iLOLd says:

    It’s like Salvador Dali meets “Kramer Vs. Kramer”

    (without the funny kitchen nudity)

  27. Michelle says:

    I don’t think it was photoshopped… this looks like it was taken with a film camera, and anyone who has ever used a well-loved, well-worn 35mm knows that sometimes crazy light spots can happen. It just looks like that black spot in the corner happened naturally and is actually on the film, not on photoshop…

    • Randy says:

      You are right it looks like a bad spot happened on the negative during development, or a double exposure. It seems people forget that photos existed before photoshop.

    • DrStrangelove says:

      I’ve taken countless photos on film, both with cheapie cameras as well as medium-high quality ones. I’ve developed countless rolls of film and printed countless prints, and I have never seen a “mistake” anything like this one.

      Or are you just being the AWP anti-photoshop-conspiracy starter?? :-D

    • piper says:

      michelle, you can still photoshop an image. it’s called using a scanner. in fact. said scanner is how the image was turned into a lovely little JPG to share in the internet to start with.

      or were you joking and i just took you seriously for no good reason.

    • Stephanie says:

      But it happened to JUST one body and no one else? Seems a bit suspicious to me.

  28. klh says:

    The “womanly curve” sticking in the husband’s arm cracks me up. Very weird picture!

  29. Haryr says:

    What is in the upper left corner? The black triangle. Is that an umbrella?

    Something fishy about this photo.

  30. linda says:

    not only is there something weird going on with the disembodied hand on the kid’s shoulder, but the same kid doesn’t appear to be actually wearing his pants! there’s bare leg showing on the side. are they just tucked in under his t-shirt? oh, wait! there are 2 more legs behind him. yowsir!

  31. Lisa says:

    Oh, my. Look at the ownerless legs and bare feet behind the boy on the left!! CHILLS!

  32. DrStrangelove says:

    Oh I get it… Pat is the ex-wife (“Ex-Pat”) who got (very very crudely) Photoshopped out.

  33. Stacey says:

    This pic was so photoshopped!!

  35. Kristen says:

    An ex-patriot would be someone who used to be patriotic, but remember that an expatriate (or expat for short, no hyphen) is someone who lives outside their country of citizenship. People have in recent years been mistaking the former for the latter.

  36. Kristen says:

    Harsh! Bad Photoshopping… no one deserves it.

  37. Sara says:

    Im trying so hard to figure out what is going on but I can’t.

  38. Chad says:

    “Take a look at what I’m wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I’m wearing these bad boys?”

  39. maryrae says:

    Dismemberment? Oh My!

  40. CarrieC says:

    Can someone explain what is with the upper left in the picture?

    • Pamby says:

      The mom got erased. Hopefully, just from the picture!

    • Ashley says:

      I want to say that the triangle that was cut out was also cut up and randomly placed below it, but it *does* look like a cloning tool was used, so I think everyone’s slightly puzzled.

  41. Kelley says:

    I am truly, truly frightened. It looks like a shot from Paranormal Activity.

  42. Michelle says:

    LOL! Photoshop-clone-tool-FAIL!

  43. carol says:

    The divorce was not a friendly one.

  44. Holly says:

    The fingers on the boys shoulder are just freaky.

  45. Joie says:

    fabric is NEVER that on sale….

  46. MidwesternMom says:

    Did someone get Photoshoped out? And really badly?

  47. LuLu says:

    I’m thinking ugly divorce? Certainly ugly photoshop job.

  48. Stacie says:

    I find this photo disturbing. I had to stare at it for a long time just to figure out what was going on there with the disembodied hand on the left son’s shoulder. Cute twins though.

  49. wee says:

    i think there is a predator uncloaking to the man right!!
