Jesse’s Protest - Family Portrait

“My Mom bought a family portrait for a school fundraiser.  My little brother, Jesse, refused to cooperate, so finally my Mom told him he could just turn around.  Sixteen-year-old me is in the tie-dye, wishing this was not my family.”

This Woman’s Text Pranks to Her Mom Are Hilarious - Awkward Galleries

Here at AFP we love celebrating parents who prank their kids, but today the shoe is on the other foot.

15+ Awkward Men’s Fashion Ads From The 70’s - Awkward Galleries

If you want to relate to people who lived in a different time than you, probably the worst thing you can do is look at the clothes they wore. And nothing makes us go, “What were they thinking?!” quite like the cl0thing of the 1970’s. Bell bottoms and platform shoes. Wide collars and scarves.
