My new favourite website

I think we can all relate to having some goofy, embarassing family photos around. My new favourite site: Awkward Family Photos ROCKS! Check it out. But in case you need a teaser - here you go:

I wonder how many times throughout the years they tried to take this photo and weren't quite aligned propertly?  Little Timmy has a growth growth spurt, and the plan is foiled!   And WHY do people never smile in old photos?? I know times were tough, but c'mon, flash one grin!

Ok, if I ever start wearing a "World's Best Mom" sweater while holding a dog and wearing reindeer antlers, PLEASE KILL ME!

Oh god I miss the 80's.

And the most disturbing of all...

And you thought YOUR parents were bad!!!! There are so many things wrong with this photo, I don't even know where to start.

I love the internet. :-)

Oh god, that was too funny!
I've got a cramp in my side now.

Hilarious! Not that I need any more to waste time on, but still!

Thanks, I can`t stop laughing about the last picture. Such a stupid one.

The family portrait with everyone lined up reminds me of those phone ads that show more bars in more places. However, that photo seems more natural than stacks of newspapers lined up like that.

OMG that last one is just too much. Especially as daughter fondles daddy's goods.

I just wasted a good chunk of time on that website. I always KNEW my family wasn't the only photo-challenged one! Thanks for the giggles!

I was going to trade you Awkward Family Photos for cakewrecks.com, but there is nothing on wrecks that can match the burn-your-retina's action of the last photo not even the Carrot jockeys (you'll have to find them yourself, sorry).

This cake comes close in the turn-the-stomach department:http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2008/07/lost-in-translation.html

This cake probably came from the #1 son in the last pic on your post:

'kay, the comments re: the fuzzy anatomy lesson family are the best. There's a zillon of them, and most are puritanical "Child porn, call CPS" variety, but the good ones are good. If the artist that created these suits (Anna Maltz) wanted people to debate boundries and societal taboos, she got it on the AFP!

Jen I can see you're quite taken by the pink fuzzy anatomically correct suits! Uh oh are you looking for a pair for you and Leah? (and Gibson!?) OMG those would be awesome on a dog. Although he'd probably rip off his fake balls in no time.

Jen said...

According to one of the pages about the art installation a lesbian family wore the suits! Leah and I would have to flip over who's the "man". Our dog doesn't need a suit.

He's already fuzzy and anatomically correct and running around naked. If anything, he'd need a set of fake plastic balls to replace the goods stolen away 10long months ago.

Though disturbing, I don't think the last photo is child porn/ abuse like a bunch of folks out there on the interwebs. The discussion is repetative, but worth it.

Yes, Gibs may be furry, anatomically correct, but he's not PINK!

Ok, maybe certain, um... "parts" of him are.

I love how uncomfortable the photo makes me feel. :)
