How much you wanna bet these people got a still in their backyard?
Is is just me, or does “Mamma” look a lot like actor Paul Williams? Same expression; same height.
I really don’t think this season of Swamp People has been as good as the last.
I wish the dog had a pipe, too.
OH! I came here just to say the exact same thing. I SO wish that dog had a pipe.
So clearly the kid does not realize that RocaWear hat he’s wearing is a hip hop artists clothing line or maybe he’s a closet rap fan.
Most likely staged. Look how clean the jeans are. See how nice here finger nails are. For the photo, she probably just pulled down her hair, glasses, put on a piggy shirt and pipe. Between both guns, they are inconsistent for doing the same type of hunting. I could be wrong, maybe they put on their best jeans and grabbed their best guns for a family photo.
Haha. The dog has a “Please help me” look!
Photo taken by their ex future daughter in-law. She was never to be seen again.
She didn’t take a second serving of that squirrel tetrazzini.
…If Sherlock Holmes had been raised in West Virginny.
Watson! Get me my compound bow. Confound these criminals!
Now that’s one groovy Christmas card photo.
Hoggly Woggly shirt *does* tie it all together nicely.
This photograph looks like a still from a possibly awesome movie. A work of art!
Is it me or does the dog look super worried?
LOL! That is hilarious!!
The dog has a look that seems to say “Dear Lord, please, get me out of here!”
Is she wearing a Piggly Wiggly t-shirt? You GO, girl!
I was just going to comment on the way the *fabulous* Piggly Wiggly shirt seems to tie the whole picture together. YIKES!!
It’s missing a couple of empty beer cans….
Kind of sad when the most levelheaded participant in the picture is the dog.
that dog is pleading for help…just look at his eyes
That is so fake. Ma’s finger nails are painted pink….
are you thinking someone photoshopped her fingernails? what color would you have liked them?
I was slamming all of the Photoshop sqwuakers that post.
Aw, now the dog with no pipe feels incomplete!
The velvet painting is truly the pièce de résistance.
her piggly-wiggly t-shirt is a touch of class, too…
I know! Or as we called it, Hoggly Woggly.
I’m having trouble with identifying the velvet painting, is it the Last Supper or the Poker Playing Dogs? It didn’t look like Elvis, I think I see multiple figures in it.
I envision a no trespassing sign out front of their home. Maybe Walmart had a 2 for 1 special on rifles.
And a three-for-one special on pipes.
Good heavens! These people make my family look…normal!
That poor dog…..”call the police!”
Here We are Mr. President. Clinging to our guns and Bibles…….and pipes.
Wait a minute, why does pa have a pipe in his mouth and a pack of cigarettes in his shirt pocket? And ma has the pipe on the wrong side of her mouth, was she striving for balance or just wrong? Sonny looks like he is smoking something besides tobacco in his pipe.
there’s a right and wrong side of the mouth for a pipe? LOL
That lever action looks like a plain ol’ .22 for plinking varmints, but the bolt action looks a little more serious. Not sure what kind of rifle it is, but it’s got a magazine for larger cartridges.
Piggly Wiggly Shirt…Backward Rocawear Cap…
And yes the dog is terrified, just as I would be.
I can’t believe Mumma doesn’t have a gun!
Her compound bow is in the shop being restrung.
She’s wearing bandoliers instead of a brassiere.
“Fido, meet yer dinner.”
Check out the lighting. This is a professionally shot photo, probabably specifically set up and posed by the photographer. Not just a family shapshot. Every element (pipes, guns, dogs, clothing, beard, even the tee-shirt) was carefully selected.
Yeeeeah, that’s it.
Don’t forget the tobacco-stained beard: that’s a common prop at professional photo studios as well. I think you nailed it.
Yeah, the professional photographer had other ideas for this, but they threatened him at gunpoint. “Dang it, Cletus, you WILL take th’ picture thisaway!”
that is not a professional lighting job. No professional photographer would put the camera that dang low on a tripod, leave mama out of focus, forget the fill and back lights and let son slouch that much. It’s probably taken near a big picture window. That’s why it’s got the slight cold quality. The camera was white balanced partway between indoor and outdoor lighting.
Best Christmas card pic ever!!
You can have my pipe when you pry it out of my cold, dead lips!
I can’t believe the dog doesn’t have a pipe. What gives?
Exactly my 1st thought as well – The dog looks disappointed being left out of the terbaccer fun…
Go Piggly Wiggly! (T-Shirt)
The Piggly Wiggly shirt just makes it a perfect picture!
Looks like they have every necessary component for a good old hillbilly time here in my home state of Arkansas!
Grisly Faces= check
Huntin’ Dog= check
Let the good times roll!!
Also VERY Arkansas, Piggly Wiggly shirt aside, wardrobe by Wal-Mart. From what I can tell about what’s going on with the background artwork (some type of deer, maybe on velvet, and bonus points if it turns out to also be religious in subject). Meanwhile, props to the older guy who also has back-up cigarettes in his shirt pocket. I don’t think I’m out of line by assuming the younger guy is sitting on a can of skoal.
I think Mama with the pipe and piggly wiggly shirt tops this moment off perfectly
What? No pipe for the dog? lol
Is that a Piggly Wiggly t-shirt that I see???
Is it me but the dog looks nervous…
This is why I don’t go to Piggly Wiggly anymore.
Awwwww. The Piggly Wiggly shirt just brings the whole piece together.
That’s definitely a painting on black velvet in the background… of a stag nonetheless…
the nailpolish gives her away
That’s not awkward; it’s disturbing. On many levels.
That doggie made me lol.
So why doesn’t the dog have a pipe?
Why doesn’t the dog have a pipe too?????
The dog’s whispering “help meeeeee…”
