And you thought your family was bad


“Happy Mother’s Day!” photo from Awkward Family Photos

Just in case one of your friends hasn’t forwarded you this new website yet, check out AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. In the awesome tradition of FAILblog and The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks, Awkward Family Photos aims to “spread the awkwardness,” in their case by collecting some of the most horrendous displays of familial unity — and hilariously captioning them. According to a “Time” interview, the founders say the site’s not intended to be mean-spirited, just funny. Of course, we think the funniest ones are the sauciest ones, so here’s a taste:

  • Family Tree: “Even the tree felt this one was awkward.”
  • Big Love: “The only thing more awkward than this photo had to be the night the baby was conceived.”
  • Roman Holiday: “When Vivian suggested they get a picture with the massive columns, Steve completely misinterpreted it.”
  • Too Close For Comfort: “When it comes to mom, hand placement is everything.”
  • He’s Going to Pork Her Russ: “Little Josh is already planning for his first standing dry hump.”
  • The Wonder Years: “A gentle, nostalgic look back at a more innocent time.”
