Tuesday Treasures: Awwwwkwaaaard...

Today's installment of Tuesday Treasures comes from my friend Jennifer.

I was going to save this for later, but after looking around the link she sent me, I realized that I absolutely must share this now:


Childhood friends Mike and Doug found an awkward vacation photo in Mike's parents' house. They decided to create a website to share this and other awkward family moments captured on film, and for others to submit and share moments of their family history.

The result is truly a treasure trove of amusement, some awkward "What am I looking at" moments, and even a few outright "GAH!!!" moments.

In some of the photos you'll see on this site, the awkwardness is very up-front. You'll know immediately "What's wrong with this picture?"

Yes, 70's and 80's fashion statements, I'm talking about you.

Others, you need to examine; the awkwardness may be going on in the background.

In the spirit of a "Tuesday Treasures Two-For-One", you can also enjoy the affiliated AWKWARD FAMILY PET PHOTOS site, created after Mike and Doug noticed a great number of family moments involve pets.

As Jennifer said in her e-mail to me "This site made me laugh...awkward laugh, but laugh."

Check out AWKWARD FAMILY PHOTOS and have a nervous laugh or two.

You might even feel a bit better about your own family after you see what else is out there.

Thanks for reading my ranting,



  1. Oh man, that guy in the easter bunny costume had pedophile written all over him. Creepy.

  2. Wow! I've never been mentioned in a blog before! Glad you liked the site :)

  3. Jennifer, it's actually becoming a new favorite.

    So much to explore, so many nervous chuckles and shivers down my spine...

  4. Hah! Some of those pictures are so wrooooooong! *searches memory for any possible existing awkward photo of self*

  5. I LOVE THAT SITE!!!! I spend waaaay too much time there instead of writing :)

  6. We sell a book from the site as well. You'd probably like it. Really funny stuff

  7. Yeah, I saw on the site that they had a book.
    It would fit quite nicely onto my shelf of oddities...
