Crappy Birthday

“This must have been my 10th or 11th birthday. It was a custom that the cousins would give out the birthday spankings, but apparently it got a little rough. I think I look terrified. It’s like a scene out of “Lord of the Flies.” Notice the John Travolta poster in the background, and the fact that my brother is laughing maniacally and holding a leather belt.”

Barbie Gone Wild

“My mom attempted the Barbie cake for my 8th birthday. A neighbor gave her general instructions, and my brother and best friend were clearly unimpressed with the results.”

Happy Day

“My Mom was so excited to take birthday pictures she wouldn’t let me find the closest bathroom first. But that takes a backseat to the fact I can only assume this was my 4th birthday party since the well-decorated ‘Happy Day’ cake wasn’t overly descriptive.”

Spank E. Cheese

“This is me in 1984 getting spanked by Chuck E. Cheese on my 10th Birthday. I do not know why my mom didn’t see what was wrong with this picture!”
