The Puke Mystery - AFP Hall Of Fame

The Puke Mystery

“During family pictures my bouncy 5-year-old was a little sluggish but I was thrilled that he wasn’t hyper. When my photographer said “Ummm he just threw up,” I thought she meant the baby, so I checked him for spit up, saw none, and said, “No he’s good.” Then I saw the puddle at my feet. We rushed to the car and as we were driving away the photographer flagged us down to show us the picture she had captured. We laughed so hard we cried.

That was the only time he threw up that day, and he was totally fine and hour later, so we were puzzled. The next day, as my husband and I kept discussing that he must have eaten something that upset his stomach, he finally came clean. While we had been upstairs getting dressed, he snuck into the kitchen and ate a whole tub of ice cream. Then he cleaned up the mess and thought he got away with it. Apparently, he didn’t understand how that much ice cream would make him so sick. He learned the hard way! And it made for a great Christmas card!”

“My fiancé and I decided to take our dog to our annual Christmas photo shoot. After a couple pictures with the three of us we wanted a picture of just the two of us. Our dog wasn’t happy being left out so he let the photographer know it!”

“It was the season of family greeting cards, and of course my family participated. We took this photo in my own backyard and naturally we are wore matching outfits including white turtle necks tucked in to blue jeans with a belt to pull it all together. That’s not the best thing I find about the picture; the fact that my parents are in the position of ‘going to the bathroom,’ is just great and the fact that my hair is of a Shih-Tzu. We sent this picture out to family and friends not thinking twice.”

Not Suffering Fools

“My family can’t stand stupid. It begins at birth. I took my 3-year-old daughter to have her birthday pictures done. The photographer made very lame attempts at making her smile and she made this face just as she snapped the picture. Her face looks like she’s thinking, ‘What is wrong with you?’ The photographer wanted to delete the picture but I wouldn’t let her. I even bought the picture because it was just so funny!”
