    I was working at the studio that this photo was taken at in 2001. To answer a few questions; The mom had just lost a bunch of weight from gastric bypass and she did want to show off her new bod. She changed in the studio, she didn’t walk into the mall that way. We took way funnier pictures then just this one, like mom laying on the ground and kids on her back, but obviously, those just didn’t make the cut. They were really nice people, and now they are infamous!

    She’s an extraterrestrial trying to pose as a human.

    A “Sprockets Christmas” wasn’t one of Dieter’s more highly rated shows.

    Well . . . Happy Birthday Jesus.

    You can’t unsee what’s been seen

      Well actually, looking at that was very stressful, therefore; stress induced amnesia will be very handy right about NOW. if that does not

    and…I have a new desktop image! 😉

  7. divaleena says:

    This is totally photoshopped. Funny, but photoshopped.

  8. customcartoons says:

    The photo isn’t really that bad at first, until you notice the dress is latex. Then the questions start coming…

  9. Nicole says:

    Mary?! Is that you?? I think I know this family…

  10. magillicuddy says:

    is that a rip in her sheer stocking? totally ruins the picture.

    This isn’t happening…this isn’t happening…this isn’t happening……

  13. Jenny says:

    I would love to buy a Christmas card collection from this website. As long as this was included as one of the card designs.

    • Jeannie says:

      Oh, JennY! Awesome idea! Of course they would have to have clever captions….I would SOOOOO buy some, and I don’t even send out cards!!!!!

  14. Caroline says:

    Oh my gosh! I just saw the garter!

  15. Wolf says:

    “,,, and in the OFF season, all of Santa’s merry little elves had part-time jobs…”

  16. Gigi says:

    Glad she’s not sitting down for this photo.

  17. Jessa says:

    I’m so glad the mom chose to wear socks with her heels, otherwise this outfit would have been a bit risque.

  18. SeanG says:

    That kid’s gonna snap his own ankle.

  19. Julie says:

    “Mom, I’m taking the kids to the portrait studio for Christmas card photos. Why don’t you come along?”

    “I’d love to, honey. Should I wear something festive?”

    “Sure, why not?”

  20. Modine says:

    Here’s what I want to see… the expression on the face of the photographer when this family first showed up.

  21. John III says:

    I’m hoping these two are a couple. Maybe she just looks older than she is, and he looks younger than he is. Because if that’s grandma….most awkward picture ever! (and maybe it is anyway…..)

  22. tracy says:

    This is the epitome of awkward. Although Mom looks pretty gleeful.

  23. Lisa says:

    The little boy is cute. What was Mom thinking? And is the little girl wearing black go-go boots, too?

  24. coNNie says:

    Something in this photo has been photoshopped.

  26. Snowrider says:

    Yeah, pretty much ANY outfit (other than a wetsuit) that you can hose out to clean is bad news.

  27. tattoo says:

    Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance!

  28. mrs5180 says:

    there’s just some photo styles you don’t combine……………

  29. Jim says:

    This woman’s outfit is completely tastless for any family photo that includes children. Brings a whole new meaning to HO HO HO.

  30. coNNie says:

    My computer froze when this photo came up.

  31. Susan says:

    FINALLY we are back to truly awkward photos. For awhile there I thought you had used all the good ones up!

  32. Susan Ryer says:

    Look at the little girl in Taking a Stand. Same?

  33. Janellionaire says:

    “OH. OH NO. OH NONONO. OH GOD. NO.” (transcript of what i said out loud as i took in this picture.)

    • Nosferatu says:

      That transcript it similar to my own:


  34. Sara says:

    I feel like the Men in Black are the real problem with this photo… where’s their Christmas spirit?

  35. Alan says:

    Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house only the rubber was squeaking.

  36. amy w. says:

    She might be Grandma, not Mom.

  37. Cpm says:

    Please, please tell me this is “mom” and not “grandma.”

  38. redplanet says:

    The family that sleighs together, stays together.

  39. praetorius says:

    So, adult male is wearing a wedding ring, can’t see hers … mystery continues

  40. Larisa says:

    how awkward… the little boy is wearing brown shoes!

  41. HeatherW says:

    The perfect greeting card for when you wish Christmas was a little sexier.

  42. Maria says:

    The garter!!! Sexy!

  43. cheryl says:


  44. AndrewT says:

    Soooo much to explain on this one. Why the Santa reference? Why latex? Why the garter? If anyone knows these people, get them in here and explain!

  45. bobr says:

    holey moley andy!

  46. Zed says:
