Grandpa

The Joker

“In the photo is my grandpa holding me as a baby in 1989. After grandpa retired, he started a side job as a clown, where he’d go to birthday parties and do magic tricks. He also often wore his boxing shorts from his days as a heavyweight boxer at Michigan State. He was dressing up to entertain the grandkids that day, and the boxing/clown combination certainly made for an interesting photo.”

Sleeper Agent

“Papa decided to take a nap during his 60th anniversary party, but happened to do so right when we were going to take pictures. We couldn’t wait any longer, and we couldn’t leave him out, so we included him the best we could.”

Thug Life

“My nephew’s car was involved in an accident and the windshield was smashed out. Instead of having the car towed, my dad (the grandpa) insisted they drive the car home with no windshield. So, they put on their safety glasses and drove all the way home with the wind in their faces. The funniest part of the picture is the police officer following them who never noticed.”

The Patriot

“My grandfather is the star of many awkward family photos. Here, he poses pantsless, with a pair of kettlebells, artistically composed at his feet to highlight his lack of pants and booty short spandex. The flag in the background pretty much says it all: this is AMERICA.”

The Honeymooners

“My grandparents stayed at the Virgin Island Hotel on their honeymoon. My grandma didn’t understand why my grandpa was telling her to pose her hands and legs in this specific manner.”
