The worst family photos I could find on the internet

So this summer I have two family reunions. Both sides of the family. Now let me preface this by saying I love my family. Really I do. They are hilarious and provide me with hours upon hours of material. In fact more than a few  of my posts have come directly from something we talked about. By the way family I am still sorry bout the Top 10 Places To Bury Grandma post. So so regrettable..

Anyways sometimes we get together for one of the big family photos. You know the ones...  everyone dressed up in all denim like we are about to heard cattle. Or maybe everyone wearing a matching sweater or something... because I guess sharing the same actual blood lines just isn't enough family solidarity? 

And we take these horrifying photos..& inevitably someone will tag you in said picture and you end up on Facebook. Or maybe it ends up hanging above the parents dinner table for your significant others to constantly see you in a much less sexual light..... Or... if you are really lucky, it gets chosen to be proudly shown off in the window of the photographers studio at the mall.... for the whole town to laugh at... er ...see... Gotta love that...

Regardless Im getting excited for the reunion....... Getting a chance to see everyone, maybe then firing up the old bbq and having a good meal or two with everybody.... Having that awkward conversation about how the whole family was certain you were "slow" when you were growing up. 
Maybe then having a couple extra beers and lettin a good family secret out....Ah its gonna be fun.....seein everyone.... and even though I'm not much of a kid person, playing a game or two with their new little monsters ..... sounds fun ......literally. 

But lets get back to the pictures.... I've been doing some research. Looking up other peoples bad photos and family poses.....and Im sure some of these gems could be expanded to include lots of relatives... so all you amateur photographers with a dark side ..... get ready to be inspired. But enough words...... on to the worst/most awkward family photos I could find on the internet.
Uncle Teddie was asked to lay off the eggnog next year...

I call this picture... the second life of curtains
Really? No one thought this pose was awkward?

I think this is Dan Quayle's family... seriously. Check out the guy on the left. Really? I mean I would expect this from the Bush's.

Auntie Fawziyyah  is looking dead sexy these days... just sayin

Now sometimes you just don't have any family(for example... the shunned).... its sad but sometimes true.... so your special furry little creature becomes like family.... these sometimes end up being the the most precious photos...... like below

um..... at least the poodle looks better after the breast reduction...

At first I thought this was a joke photo... then I noticed this virgin has a rat tail.... and realized it has to be true... he clearly has never had any good judgement..
A Pedophiles Easter fantasy......... I don't know I couldn't think of anything tasteful.(sorry bunny picture fans)

And then there's this one. People it's o.k. to love your pets.... just don't LOVE your pets.

Alright moving on...... then I guess sometimes you dress up in costume.....
um.... they didn't have wheel chairs in the Renaissance.... cheater!!!

and then sometimes you want your family's photo literally on you at all times....
unless this is your family

and then sometimes you model your family photo after your favorite tv show.... 

these guys are huge Saturday Night Live fans

classic SNL
and then sometimes its just where you choose to take the shot.... that kinda ruins it.....
Now I understand this photo may appear inappropriate... but shame on you. There's absolute nothing funny or wrong about Moist Cave

all right this could go on for forever.... but allow me to leave you with a couple other awkward family photos I found

in truth I dont really know whats going on here.... but I don't feel good about it

this was the last family photo great uncle Jethro can be found in

This family is stupid close

The "slingshot as a swimsuit" reunion.....was unfortunately well attended. 

And lastly lets keep it clean......Theres this shot.. But I'm told Grandma changed the will after this reunion. 

Well I'm looking forward to my reunions....... And I'm hoping that for some of you all these photos have inspired you to get creative with the camera.....  till then thanks for skimming the pictures.... er.... reading my blog.

  1. I feel it's my duty to have a look at some of your 'older' post, now that you're one year old, bud! Family reunions - well, I never get to go to any. I suppose we love each other so much we couldn't care less about meeting up... ever. Strange but true. So I'm kind of jealous of the people in your pictures (I think).
