    What would happen if Dan Haggarty and Pat from SNL had a child? Hmmm

  2. Tron says:

    Looks legit

  4. anonymouse says:

    It should be “splitting up her parents.” You have split an infinitive. Awkward.

  5. Ann says:

    She looks like one of the creepy twins from the Shining.

  6. Ruth says:

    She’s so cute!

  7. Smush says:

    I swear, Olan Mills is the Barney Fife of the photography world.

  8. joey says:

    Poor child, with giant parents how will she fend off the jokes at school?

  9. Robyn says:

    I believe that is General Robert E. Lee!!!

  10. da cutest says:

    Ok… that was scary! They all look possessed… hey @ least they went to Olan Mills!

  11. Amy says:

    Why was everything so BROWN in the 70s?

  12. Pipergirl says:

    Sigh, I miss rib-knit turtleneck skivvies….
    The only thing that would make this perfect would be if the girl’s dress was smocked!

  13. Rosieposie says:

    What is AWKWARD here is that the little girl in this picture, looks an awful lot like me as a child, and what is even AWKWARDER is that her dad kinda looks like my dad, but the AWKWARDEST part is that that lady does NOT look like my mom!

  14. fleurdamour says:

    She is their brainchild.

  15. Mandie says:

    HA HA HA HA!!! The caption says it best! LOL!

  16. Dan says:

    That is one epic mustache!

    • Pipergirl says:

      I agree – say what you like about the strange photography and strict brown-palate colour scheme, that is some truly amazing facial hair going on!

  17. justme says:

    This is just….I dunno…..a nugget of strangeness wrapped in a sepia pin striped blanket and tucked away in a big ole box-o-awkward.

  18. Freckles says:

    Swiss Trio Robinson.

  19. JerseyPam says:

    You go, mom…good way to recycle one of dad’s old suits!

  20. Jeff says:

    Coming up next, the long-awaited sequel to the Jodie Foster classic. Stay tuned for “The Little Girl Who Lives In My Brain”.

  21. Alan says:

    I suspect trick photography because photoshop wasn’t invented then….

  22. ThatOne says:

    I have a strange urge to wear a cable-knit sweater and sing whaling songs after looking at this.

    • Cassie says:

      Aye, Calypso the places you’ve been to
      The things you have shown us
      The stories you tell
      Aye, Calypso I sing to your spirit
      The men who have served you so long and so well






  23. Steve says:

    Look, grandma and grandpa wings!

  24. sarah says:

    I actually wish I had a picture like this from my childhood. When my Dad had the beard like that he looked just like Meathead.

  25. Rick D says:

    Perhaps her birth was like Minerva’s, direct from the head of Zeus.

  26. Beli says:

    Surely that’s Deirdre Barloew from Corrie – Does Ken know about this double life she leads?

  27. BenJoe says:

    Wasn’t this the original movie poster for Omen?

  28. Zooky says:

    The Norse God Odin is not sure whether to be proud or disappointed in his daughter.

  29. Linda Lou says:

    i didn’t know they had an olan mills in amish country.

  30. Cincha says:

    Oh, this is so awful!

  31. PJSaintOurs says:

    I promise sweetie, nothing will EVER come between us. Except a little blond girl in a home made dress and a slightly evil smile.

  32. The is no color in a sepia toned world where loggers fix their gazes off into remote distances, yet she is still a little ball of symmetrical sunshine.

  33. c says:

    Need to check out the photographer before you hire them…don’t people have their own common sense?

  35. PadieAne says:

    Yeah…that’s not creepy at all. Yowza!
