This young man had blinked for the last time.
(submitted by John)
Looks like he wet his pants haha.
I know him and it’s not a fake. His dad did self timer on the camera so no one was behind the camera. He was trying extra hard not to blink. This was a film camera so it was not discovered til weeks later. Believe it or not
Yep. I’m the kid’s aunt and I have a copy in my old albums! And I still get a chuckle every time I see it.
Young Timmy just found out that they’re going to Marney’s for Thanksgiving this year.
HA! that’s GREAT!!! O the horror of holidays with Marney!
Marney Reference…..Yes!! Hopefully they bring green beans or asparagus…NOT both.
Oops! I wet ’em!
“Don’t blink, no matter what you do don’t blink, blink and you’re dead!….”
Come on, i can’t have been the only one who instantly thought of Doctor Who.
That is one of the creepiest episodes I have ever seen!
Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good Luck.
-Stacey, it was my first thought also.
Looks like the kid was fooling around and Mom elbowed him to knock it off!
“Whattaya mean, he’s not my real dad?!?!”
I have a 15-year old nephew that has done this wide-eyed thing for every portrait his entire life.
People…PEOPLE!!!! Please, for the love of all that’s good and right in the world, ignore the photoshop conspiracists!! (Oh yea, and the people who declare the picture’s “not awkward”).
Oh, and I don’t think it’s shopped. The shadows on the child are from the parents. The light is coming from their left and reflecting onto him.
Funny pic, but totally fake. The way-too dark shadow behind the boy, his awkward positioning behind the parents instead of between, and (drumroll) the digital camo on his pants didn’t start getting put on real military BDU let alone civilian knockoffs til the 90s.
Ok I went to school with the this guy, it is not a fake
Those are not camo pants. Those are uber cool acid wash jeans, doncha know? complete with pleats! You must not have been around in the 80’s, but don’t feel too bad that you didn’t get any, the 80’s fashions are making a come back again. 😉
Also, light & shadows have been explained. And re: positioning & bad lighting, not every department store photographer is a good one. Hence the HILARIOUS outcome.
I just about peed MY pants laughing at his wide-eyed expression!
Why is the kid the only one with a shadow? looks photoshopped.
Actually, that would be Dad’s shadow, not the boy’s
The family that gropes together, … err … elopes together? Copes together? Hopes? Topes? Slopes? I give up.
I hate to say it, but I like the mother’s dress. Very flowy and elegant. And the kid could definitely be on the cover of some album, I think. lol
This is so photoshopped and fake.
How can you tell? I am still not able to spot photo-shoppery…
They’re practicing for the TSA exam.
Love it, Jim!
Holy Crap! These aren’t my parents! Why are my teacher & the school Principal in my class photo?
Best comment of all.
Maybe the kid just needs to pee… hence the reason he is holding himself. Nice pants. I think I had a pair when I was his age.
I was thinking that he needed to pee too…..or maybe he was in the process already!
That kid has the look and posture of “OH CRAP. JUST WET MYSELF.”
Yep, I agree!
Both Dad and son have their hands kinda in an awkward place if you ask me.
It’s like his mom just junk punched hime to wake him up that’s gotta be why he’s holding himself, right?
Looks like he just realized he peed.
I was wondering why the boy was holding himself, then realized Dad was, too!! Obviously a bad photographer thought that was an acceptable place to rest their hand.
Just as he was about to say “cheese,” Bobby realized he’d waited too long to ask for a potty break.
This looks digitally retouched.
I agree. The shadowing is different on the kid. I think he was PhotoShopped in.
I think that they did a pretty good job, but I think that the kid’s been put in the photo. Besides the strong shadow that’s on him, he doesn’t look like he’s wearing clothes from the same time period, nor does he look like the son of those two people. Regardless, there was a photo of this kid looking shocked and bizarre which is still funny.
That’s because they beat him if he blinks.
The boy looks as if he needs a potty break very badly (notice the hand position)…
but what is that hand doing?
Judging from where his hand is, I’d say he just discovered something.
Such a normal picture until I looked left! hahahha! I think his mama told him “make sure and do not blink for the picture dear!”
This is clearly photoshopped as there is a major shadow on the boy but nothing on the ‘parents’. Not really funny or awkward when it is obviously fake.
It’s the father’s shadow, that’s why you don’t see the mother’s and the kid’s. The light is coming from the right and therefore the father’s shadow is behind the kids…
I don’t think the picture is fake.
Not fake, the mother’s shadow is on the son’s shirt and the Father’s shadow is on the wall behind the son. If you look you can tell the light source is between the camera and the subjects and is high and to the right of the subjects. Not everything is photoshopped.
thank you, hugh 🙂
Except that the shadow is a classic sign of photoshop, and they eyes are so blatantly photoshopped.
Not everything is photoshopped….but not everything is real.
Agreed, definitely fake. I’m a graphic designer with years of experience in photoshop. I can spot a manipulated photo…
You must not be a very good graphic designer… I’m this guy’s best friend. I was his best man. Those are his real parents, this was the family photo they had in the hallway for a couple of years. He really is that weird. It was a self portrait. Ed (the Dad) was a high school photo teacher and took the picture himself. It has not been touched digitally. You suck at life.
I don’t see anything out of the ordinary with this photo. My eyes do the same thing when I grab myself there!
those pants are rockin! ANd the shirt totally matches the backdrop.
Tawny: Now here is a little incentive to smile Mr. Smith (.) (.)
Johhny: ^ ^
Why are father and son touching themselves? Junior looks like he has to pee. Dad’s playing the “disappearing pointer finger” trick. “Hey, my left pointer finger’s missing! Wait, here it is, on Mom’s shoulder.”
Oh my GOD! How do you people NOTICE these things???
I though your comment was mildly amusing when I saw the finger on the shoulder, but then I made the mistake of taking a sip of coffee and noticed the missing 1/2 digit on his left hand.
Time to wipe the coffee off my monitor… thanks a lot.
Jill, love the comment, hilarious!
Click the shutter already! I gotta pee!
Poor kid… doesn’t want to end up looking like his parents.
He must have just walked in on his mother naked.
Surprisingly, he discovered his manhood just as the picture was being taken.
I think that he just found his junk….haha
I think so too; note the slightly pleased aspect of his puzzlement!
He looks like one of the kids in ‘The Village of the Damned’
Me thinks he JUST had an accident.
Another one where the caption is briliant and funnier than the picture.
“Oh no! I just wet my pants!”
Do both gentlemen need to use the restroom?
LOL! first thing I noticed!
“OH NO! I shoulda gone before we started!!!”
