Just pray you never get the fan.

The kid with the fan got totally screwed in the weapons department.
This picture has a lot of activity going on with patterns and textures. I feel visually assaulted.
awwww my dads only a lawyer ….. jealous
Rejected actors for ABC’s No Ordinary Family.
The family that bludeons together, stays together!
I guess they left their compound bows at home.
Wonder if that one girl is a Bleach fan. That white sword looks alot like some replica of Rukia’s Zanpakutou…
OMG IT’S SODE NO SHIRAYUKI! I didn’t even notice.
Win… Everyone’s talking about the fan, and she’s got an unsharpened cosplay sword.
Maybe when you come of age you get to harness the power of the BBQ tongs.
Wow. This is impressive. On the very extreme side of self defense though.
heh i have a fan sort of like that – they’re stainless steel boned and pretty heavy. close it and swing. great for walking in dark alleys!
Don’t joke about the fan, those things are burly. One could take a solid, bruising poke from a closed fan.
The fan can actually be used tactically–open it loudly in someone’s face and then kick them in the balls. I’m serious.
Don’t knock the fans. Bet they deliver a pretty mean paper-cut.
Wow folks, I’m beyond impressed with all the hilarious captions on this one! Even more than I usually am! I’m still in tears from the “ninja accountants” comment!
CHEERS TO EVERYONE!!!!
I would hate to be the kid that takes little Suzy out on her first date… “10:00 curfew? No problem Mr. Ninjanson, I’ll have her home by 8:30!”
Num-chuck skills…. fan skills…. sword skills…. computer hacking skills….. This family has SKILLS!
“You wouldn’t punch a karate master with glasses, would you?”
Whose idea was it to design those dark uniforms with a bright, easy-to-see target sewn right over the heart?
I love this family!! How awesome to have something they’re all into Rock on!
Maybe she uses the fan to waft poison vapors at you.
Who needs compound bows? We have mad Japanese karate and weapon skills!
Darn, you got there before I did.
I can just see them slouching around the house on a regular day, buttering their toast with those katana.
Is it just me or does this photo get funnier the longer you look at it? With their matching glasses this family looks like a bada$$ clan of accounting ninjas…
An audit from them is even more painful than most.
Our kung fu is strong…. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii-ya!
You know you take yourself too seriously when…..
Echoing what Heather said — fan weapons were designed for women back in the day as self-defense tools. The tips of the ribs in the fan had knife-points or small spikes to rake across an attacker’s face or throat.
That said, still an awkward photo…
I bet if they shot a video of Mom going crazy with those nunchucks it would go viral instantly!
All those weapons are just distractions from the real danger: the daggers shooting from their eyes. If looks could kill. And for pete’s sake, take the size tags off the belts.
The glasses are top of the art full-sensor total perspective Glasses that can analyse heat signatures and movements. AYaaaaaaaa!!!
Glasses in about an hour. Or else…
Anybody that breaks into this family’s home will live to regret it…they just won’t live for very long, that’s all.
Aren’t those nunchucks that Mom is holding?
Don’t laugh at the fan: she could throw that thing as fast as an arrow and cut your throat!
Why so serious?
Mom has a giant pair of tweezers.
…an hour later they had the desire to take the picture all over again…
that made me laugh out loud…bwa ha ha ha
LMAO Thank you for that!
Chuck Norris has a little known step brother named Buck Norris…
Okay, so, not to diminish the humor here, but in kung fu, the fan is actually known as more of a woman’s weapon, but it can be brutal! The way it goes is, the unassuming-looking young woman carries her fan, but when she needs to protect herself, she whips it open and it is actually made of blades. Fan form is pretty cool-looking (and sounding) when it’s done well!
All you humans making fun of the fans have obviously never seen what *I* can do with them against Inuyasha and his friends!
Thank you for mentioning that. I was just getting ready to say this as well!
They also come in handy during Mortal Kombat. Believe me, I would know!
Thanks Heather! I learned the fan in the Ninjitsu art form. It’s fun beating up guys with it!
Mum’s got the perfect ninja hairdo!
I hoped they docked the photographer’s fee for forgetting to yell “cheese” or “smile” or “*insert similar*” before taking the shot. I mean, I sure it was supposed to come across as a fun family experience???
Is Mum holding a pair of kitchen tongs?
Nunchucks, but I won’t tell her what you called them.
The family that slays together, stays together
The family that slays together…STAYS together!
Hahahaha nice one!
That fan might blow you away!
lulz, you win an internets!
Brilliant caption! I thought Mom had a pair of BBQ tongs too, at first…
You owe me a key board !!! I was drining waterwhen I read you comment . LMAO.
Let this be a lesson to you: Don’t drin when you’re on this site!
I thought it was a hilarious caption too. The picture, meh, but with the caption I was cracking up.
Grey crushed velvet, nice
OMG! We need to introduce this family to the Van Helsings!!! Bahahahaha!
The Force is strong with these. Not really.
And tune in next week for family combat hour: Who will win the ultimate family smack down, The Van Helsings or The Self-Defense family?
Awww she got demoted.
Are those volleyball ninjas?
That was my very first thought!
Volleyball Ninja Marines! See the chevrons? I like the double-action sword and ski pole combo.
i thought i would be the only one who thought that…thanks for making feel accepted. ha ha ha ha
LOL! vollyball ninjas…
The family that preys together, stays together.
