Who wants the first slice of chicken?
(submitted by David)
they look upset because Aunt Marnie just walked in, she’s standing behind the picture taker and she’s really letting mom have it about the lack of proper dishes, server ware, and the lack of cake… not to mention the tacky hats and not even inviting her… they’re on the naughty list now.
PO’ed GIRL: “MOM! I wanted KFC not Popeye’s! You are SOOOOOOOOOO lame! YOU RUINED MY BIRTHDAY! I HATE YOU!”
Man this party puts animal house to shame, these people know how to get down! I can’t imagine the hangover after a bender like this!
These people most definitely put the “happy” in “Happy Birthday.” You can see it on their faces.
It’s very simple… Mom is a vegetarian. The older kids are too. The youngest wanted fried chicken for his birthday, and Dad said screw that vegetarian nonsense, if he wants fried chicken on his birthday, he’ll have fried chicken! And the rest of you will eat it and like it!
Mom must only come around on special occasions, thus necessitating the name tag on her sweater.
maybe it is not a birthday at all, maybe they just celebrating something weirdos, like the first menstruation of the daughter. That explain many facts of this picture.
– Daughter is actually suffering of abdominal pain and headache because of her menstruation.
– Big brother find that the father is overreacting the bleeding of lil’sist’
– Junior doesn’t know what “menstruation” means, but he will have his ice cream anyway.
– Mother is thinking that her husband is something mentally deranged but just acting like everything is normal and will call the asylum when he will be asleep.
– Father is so proud of his daughty that he makes that special familly party
…this is the birthday of the stepmother
Love it! I love this picture.
The birthday cake isn’t there because they haven’t sung Happy Birthday to You yet. First you eat dinner THEN you have cake. Jeez, people.
Is the bookcase in the background leaning or is the wall crooked?
And can you feel the love tonight
It is where we are
It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it’s laid to rest
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
Aw…forget it, this party sucks!
The daughter is a vegetarian…….
Ahh the little boy is cute :’)
Seems to me like one of those pictures that someone snapped without much warning and sis wasn’t quite ready. Not really awkward, just dinner before the cake. Looks like a really good dinner, too.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner? No? Alrighty then.
Let them eat chicken, she says. Just like Marie Antoinette.
The girl is looking at the door…to see if anyone else is going to arrive for her super-duper exciting birthday party.
Party like it’s 1989!
I want to know what the girl has in her hand behind the coke bottle. My guess would be a weapon of some sort.
Happy???? Birthday to you,
Happy???? Birthday to you,
Happy???? Birthday to youuuuuuuu,
…Well, maybe not….
ROFL !!! =D
Everyone’s comments are sooo much more entertaining than the picture! Too funny! =]
It’s clear that the young girl is desperate for a slice of chicken!!!
The part must be for the kid who is smiling. Fried chicken and cake makes me smile too.
YAY!! Are we having fun yet?! The girl on the left looks like she is about to spew split pea soup!!! SCARY!
I dont get it
For the first time, I don’t really get it, either.
Heres whats awkward:
1. Chicken instead of cake.
2. Three out of four of them look mad/board.
I don’t get what Jerry means by board.
Love the contrast of the sullen face below and the bright, jaunty party hat above. You WILL have a birthday party, and you WILL enjoy it.
Obviously the little tike doesn’t know there won’t be cake
Well, at least SOMEONE is having a blast.
Wow, I’m kinda just hoping it’s not the youngest kid’s B-day. This picture makes me sad.
Mom appears to be rather a fan of the Colonel’s mashed potatos and gravy, I see.
Kinda reaching on this one aren’t they?
Everyone looks so preoccupied…i guess chicken was a bad idea
this is just kinda sad 🙁
Looks like the little boy’s the only one who’s really enjoying everything their psycho kidnapper, Bonzo, is forcing them to do!
this isn’t awkward..it’s a party with chicken. Who doesn’t love fried chicken?
Just whose birthday is it? If it’s the kid in the blue, then his expression is warranted. Just turned 13 and mom bought him dinosaur plates for his party.
Me! I want the first piece!! I LUV fried chicken!
I love that you can get an idea of the timeframe by looking at the Coke label on the bottle.
Yup, rule of thumb for photograph carbon dating thanks to product branding.
Ahh…encyclopedias. One more obsolete possession.
Looks like the World Book Encyclopedia – we had a set circa 1978
Why so surly, sister?
Not sure which is the birthday boy/girl, but whomever it is, hopefully when they unwrapped their gifts there were some more tasteful knick-knacks to add to their extensive collection. Also, the wall on the left – is that wallpaper or pegboard?
hahaaaa- Pegboard-! brilliant -practical if they had more happy photos hangin… by the way .. looks like mom’s hat is pointing to a potential Awkward Family (pet?)Photo to the right. Maybe it’s their deceased chicken that used to be the daughter’s pet?
it’s either the girl’s birthday (glum pre teen) or the little smiley kid; I sure hope it’s not MOM’s bday.
I think it’s smiley kid. Looks like he got his dinner choice and the other are sulking. Hilarious!
I agree … I know the feeling!
That looks home made! I’d rather have that than cake.
Looks like mom got a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy. Does that make her the birthday girl?
i think that is a salad with French dressing.
Dang – that chicken looks pretty darn good…..
This just screams “Happy, happy, joy, joy”
I love you,
you love me,
we’re a big dysfunctional family.
Apparently, the girl on the left wanted hamburgers, not chicken. She’s shooting lasar beams of doom from her eyes at her mother!
With the pink/lavender balloons and the My Pretty Pony-looking plates, I’m guessing it’s the girl’s birthday, yet she looks least happy of all of them.
Those are dinosaurs…..
Chicken?! I thought those were croissants!
Nah, you don’t need paper towels to wipe your fingers if you’re eating croissants. Definitely chicken – but where’s the cake?
I think the chicken is the cake substitute. Where are the candles? I guess it’s too hard to put candles in a piece of chicken, you’d have to predrill the holes.
Totally awkward that the chandelier is not centered over the table.
Seriously, that’s what you found most awkward?
Guess who’s birthday it is?
