AFP Hall Of Fame

Smoked

“Christmas sometime in the early/mid 90s and this is me and my two sisters. My neighbor worked for Marlboro cigarettes and my mother decided that since their company sweatshirts were red, we should all wear them for our Christmas pictures.”

Feeding Frenzy

“This photo was taken at West Coast Game Park Safari located in Bandon, Oregon around 2000. As we walked into the park my sister saw a baby goat and picked it up while I was feeding one of the deer. Next thing I know I am bombarded by deer and goats. My parents snapped the photo of my cute sister without seeing me in the background.”

Number 2

“This is a picture of my sister-in-law. Why did the photographer think this was a good idea? Why did her mom decide to order the pictures?”

Weeney Roast

“Me being an Uber Goth teenage posing next to tombstones unknowingly covering the ‘S’ in ‘Sweeney.’ Kind of ruined the mood of the photo!”

Burn Baby Burn

“My family after a day of skiing. Looks like dad forgot sunscreen. The little red head (my sister) had to go to the hospital because her eyes swelled shut.”

Prom Dad

“My dad had a medical procedure the day of my prom and was out of his mind on pain killers when my mom insisted that I pose with him before prom.  I like to think he would’ve put down the hose for the pic if he’d been in his right mind, but in all honesty it could’ve gone either way.  He has no memory of taking this photo.”

The Rub

“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.”

Her Hairness

“This is my senior high school picture. It was 1990 but I still lived in the 80’s!”

Look Who’s Talking

“When I was in first grade I did a ventriloquist act in the talent show at school. When it came time for school photos, we were given the option of including a prop in our portraits, so I thought it would be a great idea to be photographed with my dummy. I was secretly terrified of that thing and couldn’t sleep if it was in my room.”

Irish Springs

“Brian, the baby was suffering through the mumps, Dick had gotten his first dose of the herp, mom gave Siobhan the Dorothy Hamill and Deirdra was pissed at the world… perfect day for a family photo!”
