Awkward Family Photos

Awkward Family Photos

We’ve all seen the horrible Olan Mills photos. Here’s a slightly more uncomfortable twist: Awkward Family Photos.

Compiling both found-on-the-net and user-submitted photos that capture kin at their most socially weird, AFP’s from a pair of screenwriter buddies, one of whom claims to’ve “always been a fan of awkwardness”, and proved it up by writing an MTV Movie Award sketch for Tom Cruise. Shame comes in all forms, from the whacked-out matching jumpsuits and leather chaps on two — yes, two — sets of identical twins, to a fam dressed entirely in medieval regalia, including broadsword, to a loving couple in a matching star-spangled tux and miniskirt combo seemingly homemade out of duct tape…either to make an astute political observation about the tenuous ties that bind our society, or because they already pushed wallets as far they could go. There’s also a barrage of unintentional sexuality, including a Christmas-photo-style, dressed-in-blue posse watching their folks smash face while a grandson spread-eagles; a family of six playing spontaneous Twister with Dad seemingly mounting Mom; and two teenage boys with their parents, all in jeans and white buttondowns, straddling an enormous tree limb that looks less like wood and more like…wood.
