    The only thing missing is the speed lines in the background. That would make this photo absolute perfection.

  2. Laura says:

    I bet they were listening to the Mortal Kombat soundtrack in the minivan on the way to this photo shoot.

  3. Mooch says:

    I want to see this family go up against the Van Helsings on Family Feud…

  4. steph says:

    all the girls have two machetes each…..the dad has a sword and the boy had a stick…..or is that a big knife sharpener.

  5. Toneman says:

    Looks like little Timmy brought a stick to a knife fight…

  6. Don says:

    I would hate to see this family walking in the store if I was the local butcher.

  7. Pondering Tim says:

    This family is a cut above the rest!

    Ninja movie flashbacks!

  8. buffy says:

    That girl 2nd from the right… is she holding a Kris knife? If so, this is a win.

  9. Nicole says:

    especially if you are the kid stuck with the stick.

  10. goose says:

    Okay, but just a tender piece of advice. Never bring a knife to a gunfight.

  11. JC says:

    In Japan, the hand is used as a knife! In badly staged U.S. portraits, knives are merely over-the-top props.

  12. Connie says:

    So . . . why does brother only get a stick?

  13. db says:

    “We can’t trust the boy. He has to use a stick.”

  14. CarrieM says:

    You can get some good back-to-school prices on knives right now. Mom buys the family-pack at Costco.

  15. Evelyn says:

    I love how the only one smiling is the kid on the right.

  16. Atlanta Pam says:

    The family that filets together, stays together…

  17. polymathamy says:

    That kid in the middle with the bowstaff better not tick off any of the fiver others with their sharp pointy weapons…

  18. Whoa says:

    “I get to carve the turkey this Thanksgiving!”

    “No, I do! You did it LAST year!”

    “Did not!”

    “Did so!”

  19. Snowrider says:

    Obviously the son isn’t allowed to have sharp or pointy things.

  20. leena says:

    Are those things real?!

  21. Scott says:

    I love how mom’s swords have bent blades.

  22. mgb says:

    and a stick….

  23. alesita says:

    looks like the boy in the middle wasn’t worthy enought to carry a knife… and what he got??? a stick!! they shou’ve gave him at least a crossbow/compound bow afterwards to make it up for the years of therapy to come…

  24. Rae says:

    And one stick!

  25. tmansbamaw says:

    With all those blades, I can’t quite figure out why they don’t look more menacing…

  26. Steve says:

    “Aw Mom, why can’t I have a knife like everyone else?”
    “Because, Caleb, remember what happened the last time we gave you a knife? Poor fluffy.”
    “But can’t my stick at least be pointed?”

  27. andi in nc says:

    The family that slays together stays together….

  28. willy says:

    the girl on the far right is smiling. somehow that makes her less threatening.

  29. Sooz says:

    Yeah, except for the kid in the middle who prefers to speak softly and carry a big stick…

  30. Jon says:

    They are neither teenage nor mutant nor turtles and I doubt they are ninjas!

    However, it is good to know that the “Buy 5 gi get the next one free” coupon in the Anytown Examiner-Post did not go to waste…

  31. weimerdane says:

    Poor kid in front doesn’t stand a chance (with just a stick) when everyone else has multiple knives!!!

  32. Kerrie says:

    The family that slays together stays together…

  33. Crystal says:

    Be very, very prepared. You never know when you’re gonna find yourself in the middle of a “Night of the Living Dead” kind of situation.

  34. Tee says:

    Except the one son they didn’t trust with a sharp object.

  35. Damien says:

    feel sorry for the middle kid he only has a stick.

  36. Heather says:

    The family that slays together, stays together! lol

  37. Johnny Fritz says:

    so why does the little boy have only a wooden dowel?

  38. Elinor says:

    …and a stick…

  39. Dave says:

    Never bring a stick to a knife fight – D’oh!

  40. Ponyo says:

    Sometimes the best defense is knives…Unless you are the boy in the centre. It’s sticks for you!

  41. meri says:

    Almost better than crossbows!

  42. DS says:

    Lots of knives…and a stick

  43. Ironic Twist says:

    What’s wrong with the kid in the middle? Can’t be trusted with a knife?

  44. JerseyPam says:

    So the middle child gets a pool cue? And no one even shows him how to hold it. Sucks being the middle child.

  45. Joe says:

    The kid in the middle couldn’t be trusted with sharp objects so they gave him a quarter staff. Actually, it’s a buck and a quarter quarter staff … but they are telling HIM that!

  46. Emily says:

    I wish I was apart of this family :(

  47. Andrew Schub says:

    I feel sorry for any long-tailed pets that live in THAT house!

  48. Leonie says:

    Two words…..Oh and Dear!

  49. ScoutC says:

    They slice, they dice, they make julienne fries in the blink of an eye! It’s the Ron Popiel family!

  50. Kathy says:

    WTH?! And why is the Mom’s tip bent?
