    Is that the waiter at the pool party or what? :P

  2. Bender says:

    “Grandma, after you take that picture will you please help me finish oiling up? I gotta go to the beach to look for babes!”

  3. TVannie says:

    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

  4. Bobby says:

    Village People for the new millennium!

  5. shootforthemoon says:

    is it just me, or does the dude in the Speedo look like Kip from Napoleon Dynamite?

  6. luis outlet says:

    @tom, i dont think you are in the right position, in my opinion,you should make it clear

  7. The Weasel says:

    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.

    Family Wardrobe Checktime….

    Wife Beater T-shirt…..Check
    Kid up front….oh crap..I forgot my clothes !!!! No Check :(

  9. Steve says:

    Is it me, or does the guy on the right in the wifebeater look like Billy Zabka (aka Johnny from The Karate Kid)?

  10. MeToo says:

    I think the paintings on the wall are pretty and lend a certain ambiance to the room.

  11. BHM_Spud says:

    What the Parrot Saw… A new novel of suspense and intrigue.

  12. Rosieposie says:

    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?

  13. Mike says:

    I knew a guy named Roman and I swear he’s the one wearing the Speedo. But he’s European, so it’s ok.

  14. Alan says:

    During his year of teaching, Gilderoy Lockhart was also the coach for the Hogwarts swimming team.

  15. maryis says:

    The guy in the tux looks like a younger Spencer Pratt.

  16. pigweed says:

    Its like the person taking the pic is getting them to pose for ‘who gets to go first’ . Hahah.

  17. plainbelliedsneetch says:

    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.

  18. Jen says:

    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!

  19. Maggie says:

    Oh, very artistic! They each represent one of the stages of getting dressed. Naked, underwear (Speedo – whatever), tee-shirt, & finally…full tux!

  20. The guy way on the left looks like one of those gangster uncles.

  21. Holly says:

    Someone didn’t get the memo….

  22. Chemgirl says:

    Looks like they’ve got a couple of Situations…

  23. Tim S says:

    When you look good on the outside, it makes you feel good on the inside!

  24. m says:

    … they told me to wear a suit… is this too much?

  25. Miss Terry says:

    Hey, ya’ll come in here and take a picture with Terry before he leaves to pick up his date. I said…. EVERYBODY!

  26. Julie says:

    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?!

  27. Libby says:

    Hey my grandmother had those same paint by number paintings in her living room. But seriously this is a weird picture.

  28. Deb says:

    Is it franks or beans?

  29. Davidrh says:

    Is this like the “Four Stages of Man” Amphibian to Prom King?

  30. Sara says:

    This is great! Thanks for making my Friday better! :)

  31. Pandora says:

    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…

  32. Shawn says:

    I would love to be a fly on the wall during the set up for this photo! How does this even come about?

  33. Nikki says:

    Haha! One of my faves of the recent posts! Looks like no one told tux boy that smiling was also NOT the dress code.

  34. JerseyPam says:

    There’s way too much testosterone in that room. The pictures, parrots, and even the wall unit are bent over.

  35. Freckles says:

    I recognize Ace and Gary but who invited the other two?

  36. kat says:

    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?

  37. GAH.

    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.

  38. Whoa says:

    Dude, WTH?! It’s Casual Friday!

  39. steph says:

    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.

    • Nicole says:

      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.

      • Tux Boy's Mom says:

        NICOLE… 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.

    • JJ says:

      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.

  40. Dan Brown says:

    Dress Code?

    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* . . .

  41. Erin says:

    Quick ya’ll gather ’round Billy Joe, he’s goin’ to his first prom!

  42. Iris says:

    I like how Dad got himself all nice and oiled up.

  43. Tom T. says:

    Look, when the Scouts schedule their father-son swim meet on the same day as prom, what’s a family supposed to do?

  44. Rob says:

    The guy in the suit looks like William Katt in Greatest American Hero..
