So…. apparently on Weibo (Chinese version of Twitter) users have been taking to the website in their droves to post hundreds of hilariously awkward pictures to amuse their friends using a hashtag that translates as ‘showing off some embarrassing photos of our childhood’. AFP salutes our awkward Chinese brothers and sisters!
“This is a picture of my cousin and me. We always played together and couldnt even stop playing to use the restroom. This is a classic picture to our family and thought it would be so funny and awkward to recreate it!”

“This is my senior photo from high school back in 1993 and the updated photo was taken to commemorate the 20th anniversary of having the first photo taken.”

“I was going through old family photos with my best friend when I came across this gem. Looks like the shirt should say “sweatshirt”, but the way he’s positioned it looks like it says “Eat…”

“My family may be a little different, but we bring dinner to the table together.”

“A family friend of mine recently went camping with their family. At some point during the day they realised they couldn’t find their 3 year old son and spent 20 minutes in a mad panic trying to find him. And this is where he was. Just chilling.”

And that is the circle of life.
