I Should Have Been On Drugs - School Photos

I Should Have Been On Drugs

“This is probably one of the worst school pictures ever. I must have been laughing when he took the picture. But why would my mom send me out like that with my hair like that, knowing that it was picture day? Everyone who sees it asks me, “Were you on drugs?”, my response was “No!”, but I should have been. I am a fairly good looking guy, I promise.”

Why I Despise Button-Downs - School Photos

Why I Despise Button-Downs

“I don’t know what my favorite part of this picture is: the blank stare (I wore glasses and couldn’t see anything), the pulled back hair, my gap-tooth ‘smile,’ or the shirt, buttoned ALLLLLL the way to the top, which features a dog pissing on a fire hydrant. It’s a wonder I had any friends. I’m pretty sure this shirt is the reason I despise wearing button downs.”

Totally 80’s

“I love this photo because there was no doubt in my mind that I looked absolutely awesome that day. This was my favorite look and I rocked it with zero shame. Incidentally, it would be years before a boy actually liked me, but I was too cool to care.”

Permfection

“This is me.  What in the world my mom was thinking when she did this to me, I cannot say.  Between the homespun clothes and the perm gone wrong, I never had a chance.”

Keep Your Eye On The Ball

“My brother threw a ball at my eye when I was 10 years old and it was picture day two weeks later. My eye stayed like this for 4 years. I was also in Special Ed at the time. I think this is why I became a stand-up comic.”

You Better Smile - School Photos

You Better Smile

“My son won’t smile for a camera. So this time, on picture day, as I took him to preschool, I told him he’d better smile for the camera this time. When I came to pick up the photos, the teacher pulled me aside. She said that the photographer was in tears, and this was the best he could do. At first, I was a little mad that my son couldn’t pull out a real smile, but it’s quickly become my most cherished photo. It’s so him… stubborn and defiant. Maybe not everyone saw the humor in it. When I gave a copy to my godmother for Christmas, as she said she wanted a photo of my son, she said, ‘What is this?'”

“This is my little sister on picture day. I remember she did not want curls in her hair that morning. The profile says it all. I guess they got her to cheer up eventually!”
