Friday Photo



Just when I thought that the previous entries could not be topped, I came across this fine specimen of the 1980's, via someone who would probably prefer to remain anonymous *cough Pat cough*. I love the socks and especially love how the kid on the left is posing, but the picture is quite mysterious. Why are they standing on top of the picnic table? What kind of contest were they in? I'm not sure, but apparently you had to be wearing a patriotic half-shirt to be declared a "Winner." And Pat's sister? Um....not even going to go there, but it's probably a good thing she's standing behind him. What is the kid on the right doing? Shaking up a mini bottle of champagne with which to douse the Winner?

Ern, I also have tears from laughing so hard. Champagne boy is wearing velcro sneakers, which just sent me over the edge. I love that Pat My's shirt says WINNER - too goddamn funny!

holy crap, I didn't know pictures like this existed! I agree with Jos.....Pat My & his awkward siblings have just catapulted us into a whole new level of competition. Stunning!!!

if i have kids, i hope have the good sense to not let them dress like this.

I just wish his sister wasn't hidden so we could get the full effect. And yes, you all are absolutely correct- this blows all friday photos out of the water!(tear)
