If he couldn’t blow out the candles, his father was always there to back him up.

When I nod my head you hit it.
Dad knows there comes an age when kids just aren’t that cute anymore. Give him his birthday cake and we’ll put him down with a smile on his face.
“Bonk! Bonk! On the head!”
Maxwell’s Silver Hammer…
I said BLOW damn you!
MC Hammer “Don’t stop, HAMMERTIME”
A little strict perhaps but I did get my birthday wish that year.
Dad’s itching to get to the pinata!
“Son you better not have any girlfriends!”
Are they growing their own penecillin on the side of the cake?
Made me chuckle with one. Fuzzy black patches…mouth watering!
Karl, what are you doing with that hammer? I reckon I don’t know, I just woke up with it.
“Hold still Junior… there’s a fly on your forehead….”
This kid looks seconds away from being a picture on the side of a milk carton.
And by “back him up” do you mean “bludgeon to death with a hammer”?
Very funny! I can’t stop laughing
Dad’s eagerly waiting to give Jr his annual ‘birthday hits.” Makes me thankful my brother just used his fists.
wow that’s scary…
I’m not sure how Dad thought he could snuff out the individual lit candles with that hammer that his son failed to blow out without also smashing the cake!
A smashed cake is a small price to pay for fully extinguished candles, Gogit.
I literally snorted coffee out my nose cos of this pic… LOVE IT!!
Seems like all the Brits get my Dad’s humour.
I’m so glad to see this, this is truly what “awkward family photos” are all about. You know, twenty years from now your wife, or the kids, are looking through the old photo albums and all of a sudden they see the odd thing. I’ve got one of us huddled around a potbellied stove at a cabin in Yellowstone,and for some reason my Dad is wearing my Mom’s cardigan sweater upside down for a hat. You have to say “what gives?”
My family has an album of really BAD photos. We would pick them out of the envelope and put them in the “family album”. Not sure why we thought it was so funny, but I wish I knew where it went when mom died. Maybe she was buried with it and is planning to haunt us with it. lol
“Ok, boy. If they don’t go out this time, I’ll get ‘em for ya.”
He wanted to get his grandson hammered on his birthday…
“BLOW! Don’t spit! I swear to god if one bit of spit hits that cake you will not live to see another birthday!”
Man, if I had a dime for every time my Dad would threaten my life. Luckily I made it through this birthday, and many others, unscathed,
oh my! that is so funny!!
Mother thinking…. “Last year he had to use the screwdriver.This year the hammer. Maybe my icing IS too thick”
“THIS time those DAMNED CANDLES will STAY UPRIGHT!”
He took literally the fact that a pound cake would be served at the birthday party.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share the background story with us!!!! lol, I can’t go on with out knowing what that hammer is ther for and why grampa has that deranged look in his eyes! lol
This pic is gold, gold Jerry!!!!
I seem to remember a previous awkward pic with a demented-looking grandpa with an ax. This is the hammer branch of the family, I suppose.
This is a picture of my boyfriend, Rob, on his 8th birthday. His dad happened to have a hammer nearby, and well, this is his sense of humour. And yes, it is his Dad, not his grandpa. Rob was the youngest of 3 siblings and there’s a 7 and 9 year gap between him and his sisters.
That Dad must be one of the funniest ever!
Sweet Seinfeld reference!
Those look like grandparents to me.
Nope! Tis my Ma and Pa. They are grandparents now, however.
I’m thinking if he doesn’t blow out the candles, dad will put HIS lights out.
thats what I thought! this photo is just messed up!
“I swear to god, monkeys may start jumping out of this thing!! I’ve seen it happen!!! You gotta be ready!!!!!!”
Bill and Mary were originally startled by the young intruder, but then soon realized it was merely the famed “birthday cake ninja.” Bill conceded and allowed him to blow out the candles, but remained on high alert.
A birthday just isn’t complete without a bucket of KFC followed by a cake covered in metal shavings from the floor of dad’s workshop and the threat of “you better get em all the first time, boy.” (and God bless her – Mom is ever so cautiously optimistic this year)
Dad kept most of his projects in the shed. We had a minimum of dangerous metal shavings in the house. But as I recall, the shavings added yet ANOTHER secret spice to the KFC.
I can’t stop laughing, metal shavings! Ahahahahahahahha
“Dammit, you WILL blow out every single one of those candles! You will not bring shame on our family like you did when you were seven. SEVEN, for the love of God! You couldn’t blow out seven candles?!? Don’t make me come over there…”
ha ha ha ha
Great on Lisa! You nailed it! (ha!)
hahaha! I choked on my coffee. Seriously!
LMAO AT LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL!!!!!!!!!! that was amazing.
You are friggin hilarious! Thats EXACTLY the scenario!
Omg I’m laughing so hard tears are streaming down my face and I’m making these weird wheezing sounds!!
