I remember when I was a kid I’d always play at my friend Billy Fessner's house. It was the obvious choice. He had the bigger basement. Plus he owned way more Star War® figures than I did (including the Millennium Falcon). My only problems with his house were these 2 things:
- The odor (smelled like maple syrup & NyQuil mixed w/ cat poo)
- The big ass freaky family portrait above their mantle.
I guess the latter needs a bit more explanation. It was one of those classic 70s Sears® portraits. You know the ones with a stone-faced family dressed to the 5s, set against a weird, blue-ish globular background. They all looked possessed and it freaked the crap out of me. For years that horrific image has scarred my brain. And I promised, nay, swore to myself that if I was ever blessed with a family I would never, ever force them to create what I felt was the worst portrait ever. As you can see by the above image I most definitely was wrong. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg at Awkwardfamilyphotos.com. A site that collects oodles of these types of bizarre beauties. Organized in such whimsical categories as old people, Saturday Night Special, and pregnancy. They also have an awkward pet site. Plus AFP even has a store where you can add your favorite awkwardness on a mug or tshirt, or collect 'em all in a handsome bound coffee table book (for only 10ish bucks). Here's just a smidge of the F'd-up-ness waiting for you.
