We’re all a little bit bundt cake.

I can picture her in a bingo hall with all of those items lined up in front for good luck.
Bingo – uh, I mean – for the win!
This one is one of the funniest that has ever been on this site. The picture is weird enough but the comments had me laughing so hard my son told me that he couldn’t concentrate on his homework. Thank you all for the great giggle!
And to think… I spent $3000.00 for a lens that would blur all of those distractions out!
Do I see a jello mold?
This could be an odd but sweet retirement picture put together for this well-loved lady by her co-workers. Perhaps in her job she took an endless number of always-correct messages. The picture of the grandkids hung behind her desk; the violets sat on the window sill. She brought a jello mold to every potluck for 25 years. She was artsy-craftsy, and made her own cards and Christmas decorations for everyone. She loved to golf and played in whatever charity tournament the company entered, always in her pink visor. A Vitamin C nut, she always had citrus fruit at her desk instead of a candy dish. The gavel indicates that she settled a lot of disputes, or maybe that her word was law. To me, her smile says, “I’m likable and well-liked,” not, “I’m a raging narcissist, behold my belongings.”
I love how you put this! I absolutely agree with you! Her smile says shes having ALOT of fun with this pic. : )
I like the way you put that : )
Wow, she really doesn’t like to write letters. This says it all!
Every now and then you’ll see a picture like this on a dating site (“This is our mom. She’s a great lady who loves Jesus, crosswords & Wheel of Fortune.”)
omgn…i am cracking up at this one…among others!
Did you ever wonder what the sellers on eBay look like? Now you know!
Winner of the 17th Annual “Disco Fever Scavenger Hunt Night” lol
Cant leave the house without bringing a piece of her Horde pile wit her.
“We’re all a little bundt cake…..and gold lame`”
I see what’s going on here, she’s what scientists call “Peacocking”. Showing us just how RICH she really is. Throw it in our faces why don’t you!!
Um…and the two orange balls in the left side of the picture?
On my screen they are on the right,but I guess I’m in Australia. Anyhoo,those are actually clown noses,trophies of another of her hobbies.
omword…that was hilarious. not just the clown nose comment but that the picture might be backwards because you are in australia. way to totally make me snort!
You “guess” you’re in Australia?!? Don’t feel bad – this photo could cause anyone to become confused.
There’s a Gilmore Girls episode where Lorelai walks into a messy room & says “This is what I always pictured the inside of my head to look like.” I guess the above pic is supposed to be the inside of Sylvia’s head ? (why yes, I’ve decided to name her)
Excuse me? That’s JUDGE Granny to you!!!
I am seeing several odd reflections. Bad lighting? The studio lights being reflected back from the many metal objects? But the one at the top left is a leaf. Just too weird all around.
I SPY for the LITTLE EYE…..
What’s with her leg? That looks tres’ uncomfortable. There’s just so many awkward aspects to this photo, I can’t stop looking at it! Please — make it stop!!!
This is just fascinating. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s even her stuff. Maybe she just went to the photographer’s studio wanting a nice portrait in her shiny shirt, and they said “Wait! Let’s do this casual one where you’re sitting down in the middle of a garage sale!” If it is actually her stuff, what does it all mean?
Hey buddy…how’s the garage sale going? How much you asking for the Grandma?
for the win
I think they meant Objects of “Affliction”. Is that a gavel?
She’s an older judge with grandkids and hobbies I think. Gardening (toms, violets), golf, scrap-booking?
looks like one of those computer games where they give you a list of objects to find but half the time they’re covered up by other things. otherwise i think it’s nice.
Leaves no room for guessing what she wants to be buried with. In fact, there could be an embalmed version of this scene played out in the funeral home. Hope she is wearing the clubbing shirt then.
ohhh…she’s sitting on the floor! you can see her other foot kinda behind the other one…still…wtf….

Is that a bottle of rubber cement?
I thought it was ink because it looks like a stamp next to it?
Looks like someone I saw on “Hoarders: Buried Alive”.
My first thought was, so this is how those hoarders get started?
Exactly my thoughts!
But see, if they take a picture of it, then they can throw it away! 😉
Is that a jar of rubber cement in the front? Was granny sniffing glue? Maybe that’s why the rest of the stuff is in the photo…
Criminy, what a hodgepodge! Do I see a “While You Were Out” phone message book, a walkie-talkie or radio with an antenna, and what looks like two cherry tomatoes and a golf club? What is the pink thing on the left–a visor turned sideways?
…is that a sawed off shotgun she’s resting her arm upon?! No, wait, thats her leg? Where’s her other one.
Someone should have told her, Saturday Nights clubbing shirt was not the best choice….
I’d be careful…with those man-hands she could slap us all silly!
The best is what appears to be the hand taking a picture of this picture.
I was thinking the same thing. I bet that’s a reflection on glass. This priceless gem is actually framed and displayed somewhere. So many questions..???
as you said… this is framed and hanging somewhere. yikes. I wonder if she is a judge and some law clerk thought it would funny to sneak into her chambers and snap a pic.
Thanks for pointing that out! With all the other stuff going on in the picture, I missed it.
So, THAT’S what that is! I couldn’t figure that out for the life of me. I also can’t figure out the smaller things on the right of the picture, next to what looks like a giant golf club? God, this picture is so damned weird!
That’s like someone sitting down in the middle of my junkroom for a photo shoot.
wondering about the bottle of glue in the front…. maybe granny is a fan of huffing then binging on tangerines in her visor, if you interrupt her she will chase you with the gavel. When you are finally captured she stuffs you with bundt cake and lectures you on the 2 party system, proper care for African violets, and endless pictures of her grand kids. Fun times.
You made me LOL.
This is the funniest reply. I am still laughing
You had me at “granny is a fan of huffing!”
I know I am especially close to my phone message pad. Quite the ecclectic one, isnt she?
What are we looking at? Can someone tell us what this pic was supposed to represent….pen in hand, foot propped with arm resting casually on knee, sitting in the middle of “stuff”…….she does have a nice manicure though.
Jello mold? I thought it was a sick bowl?
It’s an I Spy game, I see a gavel, an african violet…..
“These are a few of my favorite things!”
why did she pose with the remnants of her lawn sale?
is that a receipt book behind her?
I think that is a Phone Message Book…… hahahahahahaha
‘these are a few of my favorite things’…..
nailed on the head!
I thought she was standing, and wondered how her foot got up there!
Maybe Grannie has a detachable leg?
Maybe it’s someone else’s leg…
Grandma, do you mind if we take this shot in the attic?
why does she have her foot up on the table???
This reminds me of one of those posters you make when taking a “self awareness” class, and you want to let people “know” about you…wow…new level
I believe that’s a jello mold, not a bundt pan. Anyway, the real star is the gavel.
nah… the sun visor! I mean come on! what is a full life without a sun visor in the mix?
Yes, definitely a jello mold. And why the massage book? I don’t know of ANYONE who enjoys taking messages.
I think that is neither a massage book nor a message book… it looks like a receipt book.
Well that makes sense then, because receipt writing is the #2 American pastime.
Now THAT’S funny!
It is a jello mold, a Tupperware one from the 70’s I think. I have one of those believe it or not!!!
Do you have the little, changeable, holiday themed inserts to put in the center to make it a dome shaped mold instead of a ring? I remember those from my Mom’s. My MIL swears that I threw hers away one Thanksgiving, but I would NEVER do that. Now the rest of her stuff, maybe, but not the groovy Tupperware jello mold in seafoam green!
Jello mould – you’re right…I thought it was a bed pan.
I think the best part is the in expicable bottle of drops front and center. What are they for? And why even put them in the photo if your going to turn the label away?
Still life with….everything she could get a hold of…
