Dad

Sneer For The Camera

“I just love the contrast between my mother’s sweet, Madonna-like appearance and my father’s menacing look.  My sister is the wide-eyed innocent in this photograph, while I am the disconsolate girl in the gingham dress.”

Bungle In The Jungle

“My husband and his sister took my son to the park. He had no idea this was going on while his sister was taking a picture to send to me. My son was fine, by the way.”

Free Bird

“I don’t know where this was taken, I think I blocked the whole experience from my memory. I’m not sure why there is a mime next to a Big Bird lookalike. If you look closely you’ll notice Big Bird’s muscular thighs.”

Brigitte Bardon’t

“My mother took this picture of me with my father in front of a salacious wax sculpture of Brigitte Bardot. It’s yet another prime example of the laissez-faire style of parenting we endured in the 1970s.”

“This is a picture of of my dad with our two dogs. As you can see, the painting behind him is not of his biological children.”

Heeere’s Blobby

“In the UK we had a TV ‘personality’ called Mr Blobby. My father rented a Blobby costume for my school fair and after trying it on for the first time tripped and fell down the stairs, splitting the suit on the bottom in doing so. Yes that’s me at the bottom of the stairs blissfully unaware of what was hurtling toward me.”

Puppet Master

“My daughter and I years ago. I had a beaver mullet and she looks like my ventriloquist dummy.”
