The Fabio Hoax - AFP Hall Of Fame

The Fabio Hoax

“Our daughter met Fabio at a Whole Foods when he was promoting his line of protein drinks.  She asked for a photo and he was more than happy to oblige.  We sent this photo out to friends and family with ‘Our Future Son-in-Law’ in the subject box, and nothing else, because, it’s Fabio. Who doesn’t know who he is?  Surprisingly, more people than we thought as we started receiving cautious congratulations…”

Kickballers

“Our kickball team won the championship and we were celebrating with some champagne. Once all the photos were uploaded later that day… I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t somewhat proud if myself.”

“My father was supposed to take my sister and I to get our pictures made. I am supposed to have on a matching jacket like my sister’s. He left it in the car and rather then admit he flubbed, he just told the photographer to let the picture roll. That is why I have my picture professionally made in a Cracker Jerk Tshirt. That and our mullettude makes this photo very awkward!”

The Mummy

“This is a photo of my younger sister, (mummified), my older brother, (proud as ever), and me (“I didn’t do it”).  My favorite part of this picture is how, even though you can’t see my little sister’s face, you can tell she is smiling in a very “TA-DA!” way, and I can only imagine how proud she was to be our model. I don’t remember when this was taken, but I can look at the craftsmanship in the placement of the streamers, and the excellent color blocking techniques, and I know that’s my fabulous work – my brother must have been the project manager/supervisor. My siblings and I have talked about recreating this picture for our mom now that we are all in our 20’s, but it has been really hard to drum up this collection of oddly specific t-shirts.”
