A failed pre-curser to the “Got Milk?” campaign.

You mean “pre-cursor”. Although, maybe there was some cursing going on.
Such adorable kids!
Holy Moly… I have that tee-shirt. When I was 16 my mom won it in a milking contest in Kentucky. I wore that shirt with pride until it fell apart (now I just keep it in storage).
Not quite catching the ‘awkward’ here – lovely kids I do see, awkward I don’t, sorry.
You’re all wrong. They are not a farming family…Mom is a staunch breastfeeding advocate who compells her children to advertise the La Leche League’s annual slogan change.
What does it mean? Why Milk?!?! This is a great photo.
I know. If Daddy was a wheat farmer, would it say “Love Them With Flour”?
I DO love them with milk, but they get soggy so quickly!
All the kids look happy and focused (and as a result, not awkward). The shirts and the tractors are a bit random, but those are things that my brain just pushed to the side with some assumption about the backstory.
I agree that these are adorable children, but I think if you’re going to go with the matching outfits at a portrait studio, maybe the t-shirts with odd message is not the best choice, never mind that they’re holding tractors (one has to assume they didn’t live in LA or NYC). I wish their parents could get them to pose again similarly for a Before and After – I bet they’re attractive adults!
Stinking a-dorable! Awkward or not, Im glad its on here for us to enjoy. Could they look any more all-american? I bet they all drove down to the baseball game in their ford and ate some apple pie after this photo was taken.
my pride and joy my beautiful 4 children, Their dad was a dairy farmer, before having to give the farm to his brother.what is awkard is raising 4 with 4 different attitudes. on one income.
My mom raised 2 with 2 different attitudes on one income. All those years she was awkward and didnt even know it.
whats your problem?
Dude, that’s their mom. Be nice.
Saw the shirts and tractors and figured “Dad’s a dairy farmer for sure..”
Ok I give up…Why did your husband have to give the dairy farm to his brother?
Beautiful, happy kids- I can see why they are your pride and joy. I can imagine the photographer must have had a really entertaining puppet or assistant!
Maybe they’re the Cook-e kids. Hence, the slogan – love them with milk.
I can’t even see mildly awkward here..
I have to agree, it’s just a cute photo; all the kids look nice in it.
This only looks like it should be on the desk of some Grandpa. It’s wonderful and NOT awkward at all.
It’s awkward because think about saying that with oreos for instance. So putting it on children is like a zombie saying “hmm, kids go great with milk. I love them like that.”
I love children. With milk! Served up Texas-style!
As opposed to with fava beans and a nice chianti?
Will someone please explain why this is awkward? I only see 4 adorabe children.
The constant debate over whether something is or isn’t awkward is such a drag. Can’t we all just agree that it’s subjective? Someone thought the photo was awkward enough to submit it, someone else agreed and posted it. *hops off high horse*
Who is debating? All we are doing is stating our opinion. *Off the soapbox,* too ,I hope
People can say what they find hilarious or ho-hum. What’s your damage? Maybe they’re running short of ACTUALLY “funny” photos. . .
The website is not called Actually Funny Photos. If you don’t have a vibe for awkward that’s OK, just stop trying to analyze it to death.
I thought the comments section was for people to post their opinions. Whether something is awkward or not is, well, someone’s opinion. *stops beating dead high horse*
Although your caption is hilarious, as usual, this is
not awkward at all. It’s adorable. Farm family at it’s finest!
What on earth are they all looking at?!?!
And why is that little girl look so happy?
What posessed the parents to take this photo?
The world may never know.
They are looking at the photographer or a prop.
Children look happy when they are happy.
They’re obviously a farm family.
I think the “world” DOES know the answers, G&A — none of the questions were that shocking.
Gotta love people who have ALL the answers!!! I hear there is a parade in town. Feel the need to potty???
a bit more punctuation? hahaha
Actually I love this picture. With milk.
Honestly, this should be on the Adorable Family Photo Website, not here…
