Cool Ray

Cool Ray - Behind The Awkwardness

“My parents had a traveling puppet show that my sister and I grew up performing in from ages 8-18. This is one of our promotional pictures of us with a puppet we worked together, named… Cool Ray. YES. Kids could buy a picture for $ .25. And did. I’m on the left, apparently sporting the same hair as the puppet.”

Recreating the Awkwardness

Recreating the Awkwardness - Misc

“The elf suit you see here was passed from me, to my younger sister, to finally our baby brother. Clearly we weren’t too happy with him that Christmas.We decided to recreate this touching photo for our parents this Christmas. Upon reflection, our mom said she found it a bit disconcerting that she continued to take the photo rather than save my sister from my brother’s death grip.”

The Loophole

The Loophole - Babies

“I hated my baby sister. I hated being dressed like her. I hated being forced to play with her. And when I was told not to hit her I found a loophole. We’re thick as thieves now. But then? I’d ripped her stupid blonde head off.”

Marking His Territory

Marking His Territory - Babies

“This picture was taken in July 2012 for my daughter’s 3 month photos. We decided to let the dog join us, and my daughter was supposed to rest on the his side, but it looks like the he’s about to pee on her. My son is just miserable, and his popped Polo collar makes him look like he has stud earrings.”

Rick James - Misc

“That’s me when i was in the fifth grade. I begged my dad for that hair-style. We bought the beads and paid the lady at Fantastic Sams $80 to braid my hair and a tip. At the time, I was using organic shampoo. When i took the braids out several months later, my hair was covered in a strange film and swelled to a giant afro. I also shed three handfuls!”
