Once upon a time, there was a pool noodle….
(submitted by Sarah)
My guess is that the photographer’s plan is to use a blue screen effect to remove the pool noodle and photoshop in some type of light saber or other implement of destruction. The noodle was probably just to hold the kid’s hands at the appropriate height for the photoshopping….
Is this the family from Mommy the Pooh? Seriously, it could be them, five years later.
OMG I thought the exact same thing!!! too funny
I think the father is wearing a Prince Charming frock… maybe he’s not a bee. Come on Sarah fill us in !
Use the force, young Paddle-wan…..
It’s hard to believe that someone actually paid money for this photo…? Uber awkward!
Clearence sale at Toys R Us?
While his parents were protecting the land from dragons and witches, he was busy executing Order 66 and the downfall of the Galactic Senate
Undercover police set up a sting.
That is the most creative interpretation of a light saber I’ve ever seen, and I routinely attend sci-fi fan conventions in costume.
Come to think of it, I’m probably seeing a vision of my own future, which is weird. But at least my hair looks good!
Let me know if you’ve heard this one already. Snow White, a Bee and Annikin Skywalker walk into a bar…no, no wait, it was an apple orchard.
The family that live action role-plays together…
Actually, I think that might be a foam roller rather than a pool noodle (would be longer and floppier). I’m not sure which is the better fake light saber. Oh, wait, one of those plastic light sabers would work brilliantly as a fake light saber!
I’m still baffled by dad as a bumblebee especially with mom and kid’s movie references. Or maybe dad’s such a Jerry Seinfeld fan he loves Bee Movie?
I think the caption is the best AFP has ever had! I laughed for about 4 minutes straight!
I have said this before in regards to another photo but I feel very compelled to say it again…how do people do this? I try and try and try and no matter what I do I just can’t seem to get it right. That is some of the greenest and healthiest grass I’ve ever seen, especially in a orchard field. Well done Mr. Farmer whoever you are. Sorry these characters are messing it up.
I agree, the orchard is amazing!
Orchard Family Photos.
Looks like this family was really excited about their Halloween costumes this year!!
he doesnt sting….hard
It’s Snow White and Dorf.
Hahahahahaha!!! I was thinking the same thing, but was afraid no one would get the reference.
Just as Bob was about to buzz off on Snow White, Dopey the dumbest of the 7 dwarfs decided to chuck that gig and joined the resistance as a Jedi Knight, but alas he was dopey and instead of bringing a light saber, he inadvertently grabbed Snow White’s message case. I told you he was Dopey!
Not so awkward – looks like an Obi Wan Kenobi costume and they probably didn’t want to give the kid a light saber that could break something or someone. Not sure why the bublebee and snow white are off in the distance (or why the picture was taken in an apple orchard), but all together not that awkward…unless I’m really missing it…
not so awkward??? even individually that picture doesnt make any sense!
I totally agree. I think the picture is sweet; although they should have used a red pool noodle instead.
Yes, the fact that the pool noodle is blue is what makes it awkward.
You’re really missing it.
The Rest of Us
You ARE really missing it.
OMG!! this whole series of comments has me crying from laughter!
I guess I never thought of Halloween pictures as being awkward. Bad photography? yes. Awkward? not really.
Disney, bee, trees…floatee, D&D, brain freeze~
Can someone please reassure me the bee has more than one appendage?
I’m so glad someone ELSE sees that Mr. Bumblebee looks like he was cut off or is standing in a hole!
The Dad looks like Ed Bundy wearing a bumple bee suit. And why is he standing in a hole??
sry, I meant bumble bee.
I like bumple bee better.
I was just gonna say…. somehow Bumple Bee is perfect.
So, the way I see it, Snow White is marrying Mr. Bumblebee and Little Lord Pool Noodle is going to bless this unholy union? Can the apocolypse be far behind?
Little Lord Pool Noodle…… Losing it…….
Little Lord Pool noodle…thank you…I now have a reason to keep living….
I’m confused… what does Obi Wan have to do with snow white and a giant bee?
Neither Snow White nor her lovestruck honey bee realized that Frodo’s bazooka was aimed right at them and their poisoned apple.
It’s Snow White, Prince Bumblebee, and the eighth dwarf, Floaty.
Laughed so hard I was crying. I didn’t think anything could top the caption, but this comment did. I think I wet my pants from laughing so hard. Awesome.
I like Snow White and Bumble-Bee Man from the Simpsons
what? i mean, what?? i can’t wrap my head around this one.
no kidding—-words fail me….. it’s one thing to take a picture of everyone in their Halloween costume, quite another to take it in that odd “rear parents are out of focus” wedding style
lets see…obiwan kenobi, snow white, and the bee from the blind melon video. am i missing something here??
I cannot make this picture any funnier with a comment. Congratulations AFP. you have caught lightning in a bottle.
Darth Vadars weapon of choice after anger management.
And Prince Charming after corporate downsizing led to a new career hawking tuna.
First snow white has seven dwarfs, and that bee needs to sting someone, and quick!
I don’t understand this photo at all. I get that the mom is Snow White. But is the dad supposed to be some overgrown bee? And the kid…is he like an ancient Druid..but with a pool noodle?
I have so many questions…..
Is the watermark in the lower left corner a sign that this was a professional family portrait? Amazing…
I need some explanation – Why is Snow White hanging out with a bumblebee man in an orchard with a jedi child and his yoga mat??!!??
Have never laughed so hard. Thank you!
When you understand this, Grasshopper, you will understand the universe.
I don’t get this at all….
Awkwardly ever after…
Maybe it’s his security noodle.
why is he holding a pool noodle and why is Snow White cuddling up to a bee?? Awkward!!
Why is the dad dressed like a bumble bee?
Snow White, Prince Charming, and….Anakin Skywalker???
Snow White, a bumblebee, and a monk with floatation issues. I used to LOVE this story!!!
Best so far!
OMG….. So laughing out loud at this!!!!!!!!!
Well, bees can’t swim, y’know.
Love it. Thanks for the laugh.
Lord of the Rings with a noodle sword meets Snow White. But is dad a bumblebee or a caterpillar?
I MUST know the story behind the pool noodle. Seriously. My day is at a complete standstill until someone deciphers that one for me.
Oh wait, I must also know why there is a bumblebee hugging snow white, and how the heck Obi Wan entered this fairy tale.
Hey, Obi-Wan makes a lot more sense than a bumblebee!
I’m pretty sure the pool noodle is supposed to be a lightsaber for the little Jedi.
Interesting mix! A JEDI plus Snow White plus a Bumblebee equals awkward family photo.
I like 2 have split a rib laughing @ ur comment. LOVE IT!!!!!!
Aaaah…that age old classic, Cinderella and the Bumblebee guest starring the pool noodle witch.
Snow White, a Charlie Brown-bumble bee & Obi-Wan with the pool noodle standing in for the light saber.
What the heck us he??? One of snow whites dwarfs, the wicked witch, or a Jedi knight?
Maybe the Black Knight from Monty Python? It’s just a flesh wounds! I’ll bite your legs off!!!
Oh my! Is that guy wearing a bee costume?
