A liberal interpretation.

Is that the waiter at the pool party or what?
“Grandma, after you take that picture will you please help me finish oiling up? I gotta go to the beach to look for babes!”
I’m getting ready to leave for prom, could you put some pants on Dad? And save the
Speedo for your next class reunion or family wedding
Village People for the new millennium!
is it just me, or does the dude in the Speedo look like Kip from Napoleon Dynamite?
@tom, i dont think you are in the right position, in my opinion,you should make it clear
It would seem to me that only guy smiling is also the same guy that should not be smiling. I could never image smiling… in a tuxedo… with naked men surrounding me… whom are my family members… when a camera is present. Something is wrong with that guy.
You LOVE being surrounded by naked men, and you KNOW it ;).
FYI, Weasel — I’m smiling because my mom was making a funny face behind the camera. I can’t help it if I have a good sense of humor and the rest of the men-folk in the family don’t. But at least my step dad had a good base tan by the time prom rolled around.
You’re “that guy”. Wow. You are famous!
Family Wardrobe Checktime….
Wife Beater T-shirt…..Check
Kid up front….oh crap..I forgot my clothes !!!! No Check
wife-beater t-shirt… genius!!
Is it me, or does the guy on the right in the wifebeater look like Billy Zabka (aka Johnny from The Karate Kid)?
I think the paintings on the wall are pretty and lend a certain ambiance to the room.
What the Parrot Saw… A new novel of suspense and intrigue.
We all know who won that game of strip poker and that must be what the huge smile is all about. Are the girls in a different pic?
I knew a guy named Roman and I swear he’s the one wearing the Speedo. But he’s European, so it’s ok.
not Roman, thats my Father in law. My hubbys the stud in the suit
During his year of teaching, Gilderoy Lockhart was also the coach for the Hogwarts swimming team.
The guy in the tux looks like a younger Spencer Pratt.
Its like the person taking the pic is getting them to pose for ‘who gets to go first’ . Hahah.
Look, the clothing budget’s a bit tight this year, so it was buy each boy an okay outfit, or buy one of them a great outfit. I stand by my decision.
If you can get past the four awkward males in the forefront of the picture – the fake porthole, parrots and terrible paintings are pretty darn awkward themselves!
It’s not a fake porthole – it’s a military clock that resembles a ship’s wheel. My dad had one from his navy days in 1967-69. It chimes every half hour according to navy tradition of one-to-eight chimes.
Now THAT is awkward.
Oh, very artistic! They each represent one of the stages of getting dressed. Naked, underwear (Speedo – whatever), tee-shirt, & finally…full tux!
The guy way on the left looks like one of those gangster uncles.
Someone didn’t get the memo….
Looks like they’ve got a couple of Situations…
When you look good on the outside, it makes you feel good on the inside!
Oh man! My mother used to always say that! Too funny!
… they told me to wear a suit… is this too much?
Hey, ya’ll come in here and take a picture with Terry before he leaves to pick up his date. I said…. EVERYBODY!
I just worry about the kid in the wife beater. Was he outside too? Does the guy in the tux now have a nice pit stain of sweat on his shoulder from his brother?!
Hey my grandmother had those same paint by number paintings in her living room. But seriously this is a weird picture.
Is it franks or beans?
Is this like the “Four Stages of Man” Amphibian to Prom King?
I second that!
This is great! Thanks for making my Friday better!
It disturbs me that they look vaguely familiar to me. Now it is going to bother me the rest of the day, and I worry I may actually remember something I have tried hard to block…
HA HA HA HA !!!!!!
I’m thinkin’ at least one of them looks very familiar too. Hmmmmm……
No!!!! Don’t open the box!!!!
I would love to be a fly on the wall during the set up for this photo! How does this even come about?
….only to be eaten by the rabid parrot on the wall.
Haha! One of my faves of the recent posts! Looks like no one told tux boy that smiling was also NOT the dress code.
There’s way too much testosterone in that room. The pictures, parrots, and even the wall unit are bent over.
I recognize Ace and Gary but who invited the other two?
wait – is the guy in the speedo his prom date? because it looks like his speedo matches the cumberbund! and where are they with the parrots hanging from the ceiling?
I don’t see a cummerbund . . . unless you mean the speedo matches the vest and tie.
I think they are at The Whole Enchilada.
I notice that only the best-dressed guy is smiling. Let me guess: He’s a groom, and they wanted to make absolutely sure not to look better than him.
Dude, WTH?! It’s Casual Friday!
I don’t know these guys but my interpretation of what is going on here:
Son in tux is leaving for his school prom to pick up his date……Dad thought it would be a good idea to get a pic of the guys all together before he leaves……this would be the same dad that was outside sunbathing in a hideous speedo and oiled body, and didn’t bother changing first. The brothers were dragged into it.
I think it was MOM who thought it would be a good idea to get a pic of all her guys given how thrilled everyone looks.
NICOLE…..smart woman. Mom wanted a prom pic and everyone was dragged into it. Oiled Dad sunbathing, little boy snagged out of the pool, and uber thrilled A shirt brother. Yep Yep.
No, I think that Mom was most certainly the one wanting the picture (and also the photographer). She also probably loves the photo on has a copy in her wallet.
It’s GOT to be a code – I am certain there is some significance to the order of the persons, the hand position in the middle, the circumpunct slightly off-center behind the adult male’s head. It means . . .
. . . *gasp* . . .
I just learned a new word!
This is an educational site.
what? I think you’re trying a little too hard here.
Dan Brown, You could find code in anything. This is probably a good site to look for codes. Good luck!
HAHA! This is my husband! The one in the tux, for real. And I always thought the same thing! I was like “What is even going on here? Its got to mean something!” I am so glad you all can share in my joy!
Ok, Kate, what else would we have learned if the camera had caught everything from head to toe? Why was this picture taken? Are the three guys you have not claimed as your husband, all your sons?
Quick ya’ll gather ’round Billy Joe, he’s goin’ to his first prom!
I like how Dad got himself all nice and oiled up.
OOPS! Reminds me of Officer Jim Dangle.
Look, when the Scouts schedule their father-son swim meet on the same day as prom, what’s a family supposed to do?
The guy in the suit looks like William Katt in Greatest American Hero..
I was thinking he looked like the dude in Blue Lagoon also…
I totally loved that show…it ROCKED!…..lol
….or Lt. Dangle from Reno 911
all those greasy men are HOT! Holla!
