    Is it wrong I see the janitor from scrubs when I look at this picture?

  2. Patrick says:

    Bill took his janitorial job very seriously…First “Mystery Men” gave us “The Shoveler,” now we have (make up your own name).

    whats with the baby bottle in his lap

  4. Amy says:

    Okay, the hot dad…totally Richard Fish from Ally McBeal! LOL

  5. graphicartist2k5 says:

    is this from the new german movie, Das Broom?

  6. irisheyes says:

    Mr. Clean, the early days?

  7. Kelly says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this looks like a scene from a classic horror movie?

    Oh, and the dad is pretty hot.

  8. Heather says:

    VH1: Behind the Music: What Happened to Mary Poppins After The Singing Stopped. No more chimney sweep romance for her….

  9. Bev says:

    Why is he holding both a bottle and the broom? The kid looks big enough to hold his/her own bottle

  10. Mayrose says:

    It looks like an ad for Calvin Klein mops.

  11. TaraMisu says:

    Put me in the “hot dad” club, nice! And this is just so perplexing! I want to know the story behind this….

  12. justme says:

    We are Hanz and Franz and we’ve come to MOP YOU UP!

  13. Sarah says:

    funniest thing about this photo is the bottom caption. I laughed so hard!

  14. barnes says:

    Kind of looks like Ryan and Tatum O’Neal and friend around the time of “Paper Moon”, but more awkward.

  15. MrsCuoco says:

    In the words of Dewey Finn, “That is TOTALLY punk rock!”

  16. PaulaNancy says:

    Ok, Frances, tell us all the backwoods motel housekeeping crew horror story that goes along with this photo. Please. I am begging.

  18. Chris says:

    This has to be some sort of a carefully planned photo. Not sure what the story is, but why else would someone purposely have a portrait taken of a toddler in footie pajamas?

  19. Cristina says:

    All I can think is “chim chim-i-ney, chim-chim-i-ney, chim chim cherooooo”

  20. js says:

    Dang – that man looks SERIOUS. I bet when he tells that little girl to clean her room – she CLEANS HER ROOM – double time!

  21. mrs5180 says:

    Dad is kinda David Bowie-ish

    me likey

  22. CHRIS** says:

    “Chim Chimini, Chim Chimini, Chim Chim Charoo…”

  23. Poppie says:

    Anyone know the back story?

  24. Deacon Blues says:

    Put some Russian letters under this and you have a perfect mish-mash of post-modern minimalism and soviet constructivist art.

  25. Sam says:

    Dude is SERIOUSLY hot!

  26. CHR says:

    I want to use this for my next album cover.

  27. Joyce says:

    To me, the most awkward thing about this photo is that chunk of Scotch tape up at the top.

  28. Disembodied says:

    Whose knee is in the foreground – the suitor who didn’t win her love?

  29. EM says:

    This photograph is actually kind of awesome. Black and white plus ultraserious dad ftw.

  30. Chrys says:

    I would love to know the back story to this.

  31. LKT says:

    Lucky lady. I’d let him sweep my floors any day! 🙂

    (I don’t think my husband knows how to spell BROOM much less use one 🙁 )

  32. Kootie says:

    modern day “american gothic”?

  33. NKL says:

    Behind every great mop is a very serious and determined-looking man…and his family…looking perplexed.

    Speaking of looking, is that baby looking at the baby bottle?

  34. Jen says:

    The baby looks suspicious and confused.

  35. haha says:

    The baby is the only one who appears to realize how awkward this photo is.

  36. Em says:

    Can’t see the awkward because I’m too busy looking at that hot dad!

  37. I like that lady, I love this mop.
