It Was A Very Good Year

funny school picture, funny kid smile

“I was in first grade. I thought I looked REALLY spiffy in that black jacket, silk vest, and bolo tie. I didn’t realize that I looked like a toothless chimpanzee wearing glasses.”

Wings

funny senior picture

“This is not how I envisioned my senior portrait. I really wanted an understated angelic presence…who wants only serious Senior portraits? You know, leading against a brick wall with my arms crossed, in a casual sweater and jeans and you know…wings unfurled behind me. However the photographer wasn’t prepared and he only had wings with big fluffy straps that were very visible when I put them on. I also didn’t have the photography package that would let us go on location so I had to settle for in-studio. The gold gauze was his solution for covering up the straps. So much for my understated, casual angelic pose. I ended up with a more of an angel glamour shoot. Wouldn’t you believe, this is the photo most of my classmates wanted.”

Then Came The Chicken

funny family portrait, random pet

“My youngest brother refused to be in the photo for our church telephone book unless he could wear his cowboy suit. The accordion followed. Then came the chicken. I just get to be awkward because I’m in fourth grade and have a turtle t-shirt and a severe part.”

She’s A Keeper

funny sibling picture

“Found this picture of my sister and I. She was probably about two weeks old in this picture. Right about the time I realized that we were keeping her and I was no longer an only child.”

Cool And The Gang

funny sunglasses family

“While we were never the type of family to sit for a studio portrait, someone stumbled across a coupon and decided to give it a shot. Mind you, this is the ONE AND ONLY family portrait we ever took. I am on the bottom left with the too-big-for-my-face white fashion glasses and the poorly chopped bangs.) I vaguely recall that we had a family meeting and decided to try and look “cool” — hence the sunglasses and the emotionless faces. I’m not sure what’s more entertaining: the fact that no one is wearing sleeves? Or that there is an honest to God ALF t-shirt being worn in all seriousness?”
