Mom likes it because it’s easy to clean.

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.
Best comment ever!!
ROFL!!!! I second this as the best comment ever!!!
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!
This is totally photoshopped. Funny, but photoshopped.
Not photo shopped, and the photo was taken with a medium format film camera. I was there, wish I wasn’t, but I was.
The photo isn’t really that bad at first, until you notice the dress is latex. Then the questions start coming…
Mary?! Is that you?? I think I know this family…
is that a rip in her sheer stocking? totally ruins the picture.
OH NO SHE DIDNT!
This isn’t happening…this isn’t happening…this isn’t happening……
I would love to buy a Christmas card collection from this website. As long as this was included as one of the card designs.
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!!!!!
Oh my gosh! I just saw the garter!
“,,, and in the OFF season, all of Santa’s merry little elves had part-time jobs…”
Glad she’s not sitting down for this photo.
I’m so glad the mom chose to wear socks with her heels, otherwise this outfit would have been a bit risque.
That kid’s gonna snap his own ankle.
funniest comment on here haha!
“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?”
Yes! Good one!
Here’s what I want to see… the expression on the face of the photographer when this family first showed up.
Now that would have been a kodak moment!
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…..)
This is the epitome of awkward. Although Mom looks pretty gleeful.
That’s not glee. It’s indigestion. And can she even breathe?
The little boy is cute. What was Mom thinking? And is the little girl wearing black go-go boots, too?
Something in this photo has been photoshopped.

Yeah, pretty much ANY outfit (other than a wetsuit) that you can hose out to clean is bad news.
Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance!
That’s what I thought.
Oh, man, LOVE IT!!
Yes! And a Mini Dieter to boot!
there’s just some photo styles you don’t combine……………
Agreed! Welcome to the newest thing: Family-Portrait-Pin-up!!!
This woman’s outfit is completely tastless for any family photo that includes children. Brings a whole new meaning to HO HO HO.
My computer froze when this photo came up.
FINALLY we are back to truly awkward photos. For awhile there I thought you had used all the good ones up!
Look at the little girl in Taking a Stand. Same?
Possibly before she discovered her powers of evil? Or the power to prevent evil? lol!
“OH. OH NO. OH NONONO. OH GOD. NO.” (transcript of what i said out loud as i took in this picture.)
That transcript it similar to my own:
“OH GAWD. WHY? WHA–HOW? I. I DON’T. I DON’T UNDERSTAND.”
I feel like the Men in Black are the real problem with this photo… where’s their Christmas spirit?
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house only the rubber was squeaking.
Ha ha ha ha! WIN <3
She might be Grandma, not Mom.
Please, please tell me this is “mom” and not “grandma.”
The family that sleighs together, stays together.
So, adult male is wearing a wedding ring, can’t see hers … mystery continues
her ring is holding the garter up
how awkward… the little boy is wearing brown shoes!
LOL! Love it!
that’s sooo wrong!
hahaha …yep, that’s what’s awkward about this picture…
I’m so glad you caught onto that, Tom…because the skimpy santa outfit is the most normal thing about this whole photo
Maggie, you obviously can’t pick up on sarcasm…
The perfect greeting card for when you wish Christmas was a little sexier.
And don’t we all? ;- )
The garter!!! Sexy!
OOPS I DID IT AGAIN!
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!
holey moley andy!
FABULOUS caption, AFP!
Don’t steal my name.
OMG The though there’s much to gape over, her footwear choice tops the list!
