Jacob’s Ladder - Behind The Awkwardness

“In 1989 my dad (on the far right) grandfather (holding the ladder) and family friend were building a deck off the back of our house.  After they got the first boards up my mother said “looks nice, but how are you going to get the ladder out?”  They forgot to move the ladder before securing the last board for the frame!!  They ended up cutting the ladder apart to get it out.  Also, notice the awkwardness of the jean shorts.”

The Rub - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“This is my husband when he was 6 or 7. His grandma sent him to school on PICTURE DAY in this shirt. You can’t see the bottom, but the shirt actually says “Rub it easy, make it hard.” No joke. His grandma obviously was clueless. Needless to say, he didn’t wear it to school again.”

She’s Got Pull - Behind The Awkwardness

“We had darling two-year-olds for our ring bearer and flower girl.  While we were trying to get a picture of me and my niece, the flower girl, our spirited ring bearer decided to have a yank at my veil which was of course cemented on to my head with a thousand bobby pins and hair spray.  I thought he was going to pull out a chunk!  Children are such angels.”

The Flockers - Mom

“My mom and I got our photos done, notice the Native American influence in the hair beading. With all the feathers we look like roosters. Moms expression lets you know shes thinking cock-a-doodle-doo!”

Green Day - Behind The Awkwardness

“When I was 17 my parents thought it would be a good idea to take us all to pose for one of those glamour shots. This photo would of been a lot more awkward had I been allowed to wear my own make-up though maybe the glamour make-up and heavy air brushing adds to the uncomfortable.”
