    Sub-Zero eventually retired from fighting and settled down with a family. He still liked to pull out the old trophies and brag from time to time though.

  9. Jenna says:

    OMG! I HAVE to know the story behind this photo!

  10. Jak says:

    Dad insisted that Grandma be in the family portrait.

  11. SmartAzz says:

    Being that Dad and Mom are both Chiropractors…at least their family is well adjusted 🙂

  12. alesita says:

    believe it or not… this was lil’ Hannibal’s idea… he’s the one with the evil look… searching for the next victim… you know what they say… the family who eats human being together…

  13. SmartAzz says:

    Everybody sing….the neck bones connected to the collar bone, the collar bones connected to the shoulder bone…the shoulder bones connected to the …. 🙂

  14. meri says:

    As I looked at this one again, for a moment, I thought…it kind of looks like a crossbow…

  15. The baby looks like a mad scientist!

  16. HAHAHAHA! says:

    Dad insisted they include dear, old, dead Fluffy in the family photo, no matter what.

  17. JerseyPam says:

    Where are their eyebrows?

  18. maaark says:

    ZOMBIE FAMILY!! they like a bit of backbone to go with Braaaains!

  19. boppie says:

    Dad looks like one of the geico cavemen, so maybe this is an ancestor?

    I know this family personally. Both parents are chiropractors. The photo was used as the business card for the chiropractic practice. The girl in the green has cerebral palsy and is in the process of getting her PhD in math. The middle girl has her masters degree in piano performance and is a tremendous pianist. The little boy is now in college. The parents are divorced and have gotten remarried.
    The wife is still a practicing chiropractor. I’m not sure what the husband is currently doing.They have a fourth child who is a missionary.

    • C'est La Vie says:

      Weird how fast they grow up, and I don’t even know them. The picture doesn’t look old enough for the kids to have grown up and gone to college and acquired careers of their own.

      • Doug says:

        The Predator, having taken human form to fool us all, gets married and raises a normal family. But when his beautiful wife suggests they have a family portrait, the Predator can not withstand the urge to have one of his hidden for years trophy’s displayed for the first time. After this shot was taken the wife becomes suspicious and the family is never seen again.

    Chiropractics: “so easy a caveman can do it”

  22. John says:

    …family night at Tony Roma’s.

    • serg says:

      missing the bibs covered in bbq sauce. Sheesh, I’m glad the loved ones of the deceased are unaware his/her spine is on AFF being referred to as dinner.

  23. Pokerpace says:

    As the pilot of the biplane said to Indiana Jones: “Show a little backbone!!”

  24. Laura says:

    This picture made me think of the “Klopek” family that lived next door to Tom Hanks in the movie “The ‘Burbs” – hilarious

  25. Laura says:

    Aren’t these the people that live next door to Tom Hanks in the movie “The ‘Burbs”?

  26. rettiset says:

    I am thinking that these three children are way to close in age to all be in the same family. Can anyone shed some light on this?

  27. Elliemae says:

    looks like “Mom” slid into the pic at the last minute

  28. LuLu says:

    Dad has the creepy look of a chiropractor. I can see this displayed prominently in the waiting room next to a display case of natural herbal remedy jars.

  29. serg says:

    ‘scary’ how comfortable those kids are around skeletal remains. He’s not a chiropractor, he’s a forensic scientist. Also, is it just me, or does that couple look like siblings?

  30. rick says:

    The family that chiropracts together……

    I got nothin’

  31. Tim S says:

    Did the family bring it, or was it in the photographer’s prop box?

  32. NR says:

    Isn’t that Mary Gross?

  33. BeccaTrav says:

    Dexter Morgan & family!

  34. D3funct says:

    See! Dad’s NOT a spineless wimp!

  35. LainTexas says:


  36. Brenda E says:

    the only way Grandma could be included in the portrait . . .

  37. Calvin says:

    The kid with the bow tie looks like he’s thinking, “I’m coming after your spine next, photo boy!”

  38. Whoa says:

    Thank god Dad’s not an OB-GYN.

  39. Wow. I love this family. The little green girl is playing that skeleton like she’s Elton John. I like that.

  40. CarrieM says:

    They’re going to use the tibia as a teether for the baby.

  41. Rob says:

    Bet he is a chiropractor

  42. 20nic says:

    I think this belongs on the Awkward Family Dead Pets site!

  43. nerm says:

    The gatorbone connected to the family bone…

    The family bone connected to the awkward bone…

    The awkward bone connected to the “no way” bone…

    Now hear the word of the nerm…

  44. Teresa says:

    These must be aliens morphed to look like a typical american family. What kind of backbone do you think that is? What else do you you think they might keep out on display at their hours bet it isn’t Hummels. This is one photo I wish I had an explanation for and why would the Mom go along with this.

    • H says:

      I’m the girl in the middle. Weird to see this on here. I don’t even know where to begin to explain. My biological father is a piece of work. Mom got out of there about two years later. Thank goodness. That man is no longer a practicing chiropractor either. But my mom is. And she’s pretty much amazing.

  45. Emma says:

    Isn’t that the woman from the TED-speak? She studies brains…

  46. CDpicturelooker says:

    Dad looks like a caveman with a nice haircut and a suit.

  47. M.G. says:

    Looks like someone enjoys bringing their work home with them!

  48. Alan says:

    They are all of one accord (or spinal cord)

  49. Jeff says:

    The girl in green is enjoying it a bit too much.

  50. JerseyPam says:

    At first I thought it was part of the baby… ~shudders~
