    Ice cream, Michael Jackson, Smurfs, and Jesus!

    Awww yeah! Tha thug life!

  2. Karen says:

    Don’t tell his heart, his achey breaky heart. I just don’t think it’d understand…

  3. Mrs. Vallejos says:

    What about the smurf? He’s dangerously close to a picture of religious significance and the picture of the hunky guy (whoever he is). GAH! It’s the work of Gargamel!

  4. Carlos says:

    It would be awesome if his face was printed on the t-shirt too.

  5. JeffW says:

    OK…follow my logic here;
    When this photo was developed, did they frame it, hang it on the wall, and then have him pose with the picture of him with the picture? And THEN, when they got THAT photo….
    You see where this is going….

  6. Veronica sandoval says:

    I love his MJ shirt!!!!!!!!

  7. Bob says:

    “Chancho … I need to borrow your SMURF & your wrestling t-shirt & … just gimme that icecream too!” (Nacho Libre)

  8. Chris says:

    I think he is one of the NEW promos for the NEW SMURF MOVIE!!

  9. Piki says:

    Hey! Mine too!

  10. Kitten K. Boodle says:

    The weirdest thing is that he looks OLDER in the Communion picture. How is that possible?

  11. Jan says:

    A church photo and everyday photo – somedays it’s Jesus other days it is smurf – sometimes bread & “wine” other days an ice cream cone – sometimes a tux other days sweatpants. This kid is so cute.

  12. Blu says:

    This is like the hall of mirrors. The awesomeness just keeps going & going…
    MJ shirt paired w/ sweatpants FTW

  13. jen says:

    aside from the hasslehoff vs MJ vs amish guy shirt dilemma…my big issue with the arrangement of the photo is scale. is the kid standing on something?! did his family really mount his first communion photo on the wall 3 feet off the ground? also, this kid is too cute for words.

    • steph says:

      Great observation! I think he has to be standing on something…or I hope he is. :) but you are also correct that this is a very cute little boy.

      • April says:

        it seems like he’s standing on something….the way his legs are VERY close together like a very squishy couch cushion is just waiting to catapult him off the bag of the couch

        • jen says:

          haha…i also got the image of him standing precariously on the back of a couch for mom or grandma to snap this pic. sweat pants must give a kid center of gravity powers.

    • Julie says:

      I’m thinking it’s mounted on the wall above the stairs & he’s standing on the stairs

  14. wondergoat says:

    one of the best photos of a kid i’ve seen in a very long time. he’s just so stinkin adorable

  15. Tricia says:

    The only thing that would make this better is if the picture on his shirt was of himself.

  16. mrs5180 says:

    the crazy thing is that now, 25 years later, both MJ and the smurfs are still in the spotlight!!

  17. Samantha says:

    “I work hard, I PLAY hard”

  18. Kalizarin says:

    Is it me, or does it look like he smeared a little of the ice cream on his first communion picture? Can’t imagine why…

  19. Dawne says:

    Maybe they only had one Jesus and Me picture, and they wanted to send a copy to family?

    This is like one of those neverending pictures. “I see a boy, and a picture of a boy, and in that picture there’s ANOTHER picture of a boy…”

  20. 'Licia says:

    OMG that poor kid!

  21. Lily says:

    This is really awkward! Well done, well done!

  22. justme says:

    Nobody was surprised when little Wally grew up to be a Wayne Newton impersonator, belting out Danke Schoen every Wednesday and Friday evening on the Vegas strip….sorry but I can’t think of anything else but “lounge lizard” when I look at this! :)

  23. Snowrider says:

    HAAAA! The funniest thing is that some people see Michael Jackson while others see David Hasselhoff!

  24. Jen says:

    I totally had that Michael Jackson shirt.

  25. Karen says:

    This is one of those perfect AFPs. The expression on his face(s), the dirty knees on his sweat pants, the relative positions of Papa Smurf and Jesus, the awesomeness of his t-shirt (which I’m not convinced in MJ). An ice cream cone, for goodness sake. And WHY someone took this photo: “Hey, Billy, bring your ice cream cone over here. I want to take a picture in front of this picture.” I really can’t conceive of how one would improve this photo in any way. Unless THIS photo was hanging on the wall, and Billy was standing in front of it with… (c’mon, play along…)

    • Okay says:

      …a Transformer in one hand, a crossbow in the other, and he was dressed in his favorite NASA costume while wearing a coon-skin hat and seated in a Red Flyer wagon.

    • ScoutC says:

      … a regulation size casserole dish and a bottle of clos du bois.

    • soberMattthechickenman! says:

      A LARPing claymore in one hand which shows off his new knuckle tats that say j-e-ll-o,and a dirty,mildewy unicorn plush toy in the other.You can only see these because the gloves and top half of his grimmace costume from work are off.Oh wait that’s MY picture my mom has in her livingroom.This kid has an even larger ice cream cone in one hand and a quart of insulin in the other.He’s also wearing a Christian Slater “KUFFS” t-shirt…ok ok,i’m done hahaha.

  26. JS says:

    I love God, Ice Cream, Smurfs, and Michael Jackson … but not necessarily in that order.

  27. pedro says:

    judging by the quality of the photograph, i would have to guess that this is at earliest 1985. probably more like the later 80′s though. and yeah, definiately MJ!

  28. yokozbornak says:

    “Boys in black tuxes with goblets of gold,
    Ice cream, and MJ, Papa Smurf to hold,
    Jesus statues and a rosary’s bling,
    These are a few of my favorite things!

    When the dog bites
    When the bee stings
    When I’m feeling sad
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And then I don’t feel so bad!”

  29. Mary S. says:

    That’s David Hasselhoff on his shirt! Hello Knight Rider fan!

  30. Mary S. says:

    I think it’s David Hasselhoff!

  31. L says:

    Cue the music…”I love the 80′s!”

  32. Uncuw Biww says:

    lol yes, I remember those tshirts!

  33. queenleahss says:

    Isn’t that Michael Jackson on his shirt??

  34. Jan says:

    That’s no Amish guy, that looks like a male model or some Hollywood hunk. Interesting combination, still.

  35. HeatherW says:

    I only love my Catholic faith. That’s all I need. And this Smurf. And that’s it. And maybe this Michael Jackson t-shirt. I don’t need anything else if I have these. And maybe an icecream cone, too. But that’s it.

  36. Annie says:

    That’s Micheal Jackson in the photo! This kid has all his fairy tales rolled into one!

  37. Michele says:

    Oh my goodness I don’t know which is funnier: This picture or Rebecca thinking Michael Jackson is an Amish guy! LOL. :)

  38. Jerry says:

    That is the creepiest first communion photo I’ve ever seen.

  39. Di says:

    I believe that’s Michael Jackson on his tshirt.

  40. Mindy says:

    Isn’t that Michael Jackson on his shirt. Papa Smurf and MJ ….. I see a theme

  41. Carol Bender says:

    I love it, keep them guessing kid!

  42. Harry says:

    Nothing in this picture makes any sense. Could we have some background please.

  43. Rebecca says:

    Jesus, Papa Smurf, Ice cream and an Amish guy on his t-shirt? This kid’s after my own heart! haha
