    Are Mom and Dad deliberately trying to sabotage the kids career as a knitwear pattern model?

  2. Greg says:

    I think everyone’s got this all wrong……… looks to me like something is flying INTO his mouth…. not the other way.

  3. luke says:

    haha YES!

  4. Andrew says:

    Well this made me laugh my butt off, so it’s a winner in my book.

  5. Spoo says:

    Mom’s idea to pose for a classy picture based on a KMart ad made Dad wanna barf…

  6. Even though spitting is gross, the taglines to this picture are what counts! It’s a perfect opportunity for hilarity!

  7. Mister Mr. says:

    I never knew brunette and redhead makes blonde??

    But its not what ya’ll think people. Its just either an intentional “holding up the leaning tower” set up, or just wild pure luck. If you zoom in and look real close it is just a cocoon in that tree. Right time of year based on tree colors.

      I’m a brunette married to a redhead. Two of our thee kids are blond. The third is brunette, but darker than me. And we made all three. Good times.

      And that ain’t no cocoon.

    • Beautiful says:

      My Mom is a redhead, my dad is a brunette and my sister and I are both Blonde! =]

    • Blonde says:

      I actually took this picture and that is my brother, he is blonde, and that really is spit, not a cocoon

  8. Legacy says:

    I hope he had a far enough trajectory on that spit. With a favorable wind direction, hopefully it all cleared the woman’s hair!

  9. kaja says:

    that is one magic loogie!

  10. Jeff says:

    “Honey, I forgot to tell you, Aunt Marnie is moving in with us…”

  11. t59160 says:

    ‘Hair gel…’

  12. Aussie Babe says:

    It does look like a catalogue photo shoot. Little girl looks cute though. I’m sure he could have done a more discreet spit. Yuk.

  13. serg says:

    they told him to hold off on the snuff till after the family pics.

  14. Pipergirl says:

    You should see what did in their wedding photos…

  15. Pipergirl says:

    I wiped my computer down with antibacterial wipes after seeing this.

  16. eeejuh says:

    gorgeous family!

  17. Lily says:

    On the upside, the little girl and her dog look adorable! They could crop the parents out of the photo ;) lmao

  18. Jules says:

    Maybe the “wife” got bit by a rattlesnake and he had to suck the poison out. If that is not the case, then he has an overactive lougie gland and should see a doctor.

  19. hello_cleveland says:

    As gross as the end-result ended up being, I don’t think it’s a family portrait. The setting, model good-looks and posing makes it look a lot more like a catalog shoot.

  20. marcelus says:

    Here in France/Belgium/Switzerland we spit sometimes when making an important promise, although that is usually only done by kids or drunk people :) And we don’t usually spit such a crushed-jellyfish-like thing… Maybe that’s a worldwide habit ? I dunno…

  21. Ellen says:

    Gross! Super cute little girl, though.

  22. zipper says:

    Milk….it does a body good….

  23. Alan says:

    Now THAT’S what I call a spitting image.

  24. Harry says:

    That’s disgusting, not awkward.

  25. kmillard says:

    I think it’s bird poop he is actually about to suck in……

  26. Lisa says:

    That’s gross.

  27. Jessica B. says:

    Thankfully, his wife enjoys slobbery kisses.

  28. Jennifer says:

    Really? I mean… right over your wifes head? I would have punched my husband for doing something like that…

    • Lindsey says:

      And yet it’s exactly the kind of thing MY husband would do…

      Am I the ONLY one who thinks this is SORT OF cool? :)

      • julesnjersey says:

        Absolutely Cool!! I’m still laughing and gagging. The photog probably “shot around” getting as many quick pics as possible to get a good one. Of course the family got lots of great shots, but which one makes them stand out from every other non-mucus-enhanced groups? Problem is, there’s almost always a sticky drip or two, looks like mom probably caught it on the head. Niiiiice.

  29. Tim S says:

    I think it’s a sneeze. He’s either allergic to the wheat field, or her perfume.

    • Marie-Claude says:

      You sneeze looking down, not up. Then again, who looks up when they’re spitting either? This is just nasty, and it ruined a perfectly nice picture, photo shoot or not.

  30. Those boots were made for hawking… lougies.

  31. Shelba says:

    Ewww. I mean, ewww.

  32. kat says:

    she’s covering her ears like it’s a gunshot

  33. Paula says:

    …notice, she’s covering her ears?!

  34. Miki says:

    At first I was like, “Awh, cute picture that the photographer caught while the family was horsing around,” then I saw it. Explanation, please.

    • Brit says:

      thats what I thought, this picture could have been so cute, if that guy wasnt being crude! Who would want a picture like this? COULD have been absolutely adorable! (hold the spit.)

  35. Paula says:

    A man in all his glory…guys will think it great, women will throw up a little…

    • scruffy says:

      Ah sorry there but I assure you that as a man, I find that unpleasant. First off after reading the above comment, I do have to wonder what, in fact, he was doing before the photo was shot. Second, I can’t get first out of my mind. Third, that ain’t normal spit. Which brings back first again. Gross dude.

  36. Jesse says:

    Oh my God! EWWWWWWW! What the hell was he doing before the photo was taken???

    • Wainscott says:

      His first attempt at a snowball was not a memorable one.

    • Pammer says:

      hahaha. Jesse, I looked at the photo and it was kinda gross. I looked at the photo after I read your comment and now it’s freaking disgusting.!! Can’t believe you made awful even better!

  37. Steve says:

    AND props to the photographer for submitting it to AFP!

  38. Evelyn says:


  39. Ellie says:

    Haha! Props to the photographer for not missing a single moment!

  40. Shocked says:

    Not in front of tte kids!

  41. Sioux says:


  42. Seano says:

    This is a truly spiritual photo. Look at that ectoplasm!

  43. Megan says:

    This looks more like “horsing around at the J.Crew catalog shoot” than an awkward family photo…

  44. :hmm: says:

    That’s not awkward it’s revolting
