Dodgeball - Kids

“This is my 2001 senior picture. I am holding a four-square ball, and I have a t-shirt with my name on it. My mom told me to get a hair cut, so I got a mohawk…Oh. And I am wearing a duct tape suit.”

    This is the best set of comments
    on any picture ever. Oh man I thank you for these laughs. Thankyou.

  6. customcartoons says:

    When I realized, on top of everything else, the outfit is made of duct tape, I only had more questions …. o_O

  7. Eoin says:

    I can’t believe this thread is up to 42 comments and no one has asked, “Why a duck?”

  8. Kristine says:

    Sorry folks, the outfit is NOT made of duct tape or duck tape (whichever you prefer) rather it is made of silver lamé fabric. (You can tell by how it hangs.) All the more awe insiring!

    • Tucker says:

      Sorry Kristine but I don’t think you’re correct. There are clearly lines where the tape overlaps, also the lapels and edges of the jacket are way too thick for it to be silver lame fabric. You’ve obviously never had the pleasure of making clothes from duct tape – it’s really very flexible!

    • Julie says:

      This is James, one of my good friends. It was definitely duct tape. Sorry Kristine!

  9. Leslie says:

    That guy must be my dad’s long lost child with all that duct tape that was used!

    I think its an aluminum foil outfit the foil hat was removed to show the total awesomeness!!

  14. AndrewT says:

    The super-determined expression can only come from having to hold the bowling ball in that awkward position while the photog took one too many takes …

  15. Mary says:

    All this talk of duct tape and not one person noticed his ears. Now those are impressive! Long may he wave!

  16. Keenan says:

    Quit hating on the young brother. Every guy reading this post knows damned well, we all have that same outfit in our closet.

  17. Decca says:

    I want to marry him and have many duct tape-clad children. We will raise a new race of super bowling babies and take over the planet! (Or at least Cleveland.)

  19. CarrieM says:

    If I weren’t so intimidated I would tell him his jacket has princess sleeves.

  22. NonnyMus says:

    I wish my mom woulda let me get my high school photo in my duct tape outfit!!

  23. Joaniebaloney83 says:

    As I’m looking at this picture, my husband is watching “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” on Comedy Central. Quite the coincidence, huh? LOL

  24. Scipio says:

    How could his mother let him wear that tee shirt!? A black tee shirt would have MADE this outfit.

  25. Simon says:

    I don’t think anyone has mentioned ductape yet. Oh, no, maybe they have.

    I don’t think those are shorts. I think its a skirt.

  26. Douglas says:

    The intimidation factor would be ratcheted up to 10 if we could see the waist band of the duct tape briefs underneath.

  27. Ginny says:

    I think we can get at least 5 or 6 more people to ask if this is a duct tape jacket/outfit? C’mon, y’all don’t let me down.

    Dodgeball in space-Alien annihilation

  30. Emily says:

    Did he make his outfit out of ductape?

  31. Ally says:

    It’s the duct tape shorts and jacket that make the man.

  32. bkaehr says:

    Who ever thought that duck tape wasn’t fashionable?

  33. amazed says:

    If that is a duct tape outfit i mark this in my most awesome pictures of life!! LOL

  34. blue skies says:

    Is his outfit made from duct tape??

  35. Katie says:

    This is great! One question though – is that vest made from duct tape? I’m thinking yes.

  36. Elizabeth says:

    Is that a duct tape shorts suit, or do I only wish it was?

  37. Kimberley says:

    This is AWESOME! Imagine that glittering figure advancing toward his poor opponent…then, SMACK!

  38. Bonnie says:

    The look, the silver jacket and shorts, the hair…..

  39. wendy says:
