There are a few things more embarrassing than awkward family photos. These funny family pictures can sometimes be a result of someone's prank, but often that is not the case. Most awkward family photos are spawned by the conspiracies of time and space. Clicking a perfect family picture is always a tricky proposition. A fraction of a second here or there and what we have is a great mess. Yes, you can always blame the photographer, but it isn't really the poor fellow's fault. For, both time and space are beyond his control. You can try to be as clever and imaginative as possible, but sometimes even that is not enough to avoid clicking family photos that are embarrassingly awkward.
Why is it always the older members of the family who insist on clicking a family portrait? A selfie with one's mom, dad or siblings is one thing, but a family picture sounds so burdensome. The very idea of a family photo sounds so awkward. How we wish we don't have to go through the painful formality of getting a family picture clicked over and over again.
The mischievous ones among us would even go to the extent of sabotaging the entire affair. Perhaps, by bribing the photographer to click such a grotesque family picture that no one in the family dares to get another one clicked ever again. Fiendishly clever, isn't it? Whether it is achieved by design or through sheer happenstance, these bizarrely clicked family photos, as embarrassing as they would be for the family concerned, are always a fun to watch for a neutral person. So, today, we will check out some of the funniest yet super awkward family photos ever clicked.
Santa Claus decides to show up early. Christmas is still a couple of months away. He has lost all patience and decides to surpise everybody by making an appearace on Halloween instead. However, Santa Claus cannot afford any faux pas. But, he also wants everyone to instantly recognize him. So, he makes extra efforts to get dressed perfectly for the occasion. That awkward look in the kid's eyes says it all. Family photos seldom get any more awkward than this.
The Force is certainly strong with them. If you have the mighty Darth Vader as one of your family members, you can be rest assured that no one in the entire universe will ever try to mess up with you. But, aren't we all supposed to smile while getting our picture clicked? Isn't it a bit awkward to wear a mask while getting a family picture clicked? Well, I dare you to get the cyborg supervillain standing in the centre of the frame to take his mask off.
On first look, this looks like a perfect family picture. It might take you some time before you figure out the awkwardness in the family photo. If you haven't already spotted it, just try looking behind the girl on the left side of the frame. Yes, the big man's barbie arm has finally got your attention. Congratulations, you have finally figured out the ackwardness in this family picture.
Yes, we all love our pets. But this couple's love for monkeys is really bizarre. Wish the monkeys were just as interested as the couple to get the family photo clicked.
Well, my heart would have been in my mouth had I been sitting on his lap. But the kid is unfazed. Or, is he? Believe me, kiddo, this is not a fancy dress party! Your ghost uncle must have some wicked plans for you once the lights are turned off.
The lady's life seems to be in serious jeopardy. This may very well be the last family picture that she is a part of. Don't let yourself be fooled by the innocence in the young man's eyes. This one certainly makes for a bizarrely awkward family photo.
Seriously, I have no clue what these fellows are trying to attempt. Perhaps, they are conjoined quintuplets. Or, maybe not. There is certainly more to them than meets the eye.
This family has a rockstar and a cowboy. Yes, we all get influenced by movies but this family is far ahead of us all. There is Hollywood written all over this absolutely bizarre family picture.
I am almost certain that they have no intention of throwing away the babies. But I suspect that they are using one of the babies to play a round of tug of war. I just hope that they don't end up ripping the poor little creature's arms apart. Maybe the other baby's turn is next.
This is something so awkward about this family portrait. The father and the daughter both seem possessed by an evil spirit. The Ghosbusters are their only hope. Wait, why does the wife look so pleased? The entire setup looks pretty awkward to me.
For those of you who have run out of crazy ideas to pose for a family picture, here is a fresh one straight out of the oven. While it may have taken great efforts to hold the person that way, it would have certainly required a really wicked mind to conceive such an awkward setup for clicking a family picture.
Seeing this awkward picture, I can just think of two things. Either they cannot stand one another or they absolutely detest the cameraman. Wait, or are they suffering from some kind of a mental disorder?
Everyone in this family is crazy about his/her hairstyle. They don't seem to care much what the others think or feel about out it. Mom and Pop come across as pretty cool fellows themselves. No wonder they don't mind clicking such an awkward family portrait.
Yes, I can see a Hobbit and a Dwarf, an Elf as well as a Wizard. There are swords and crossbows. Tolkien's world looks quite complete. This family appears to be absolutely crazy. Hope they destroy the evil ring before Sauron gets hold of it. But first they must learn to pose.
This looks like a happy family gathering. Wait, watch again! Who is that young man with a baseball bat in his hand? Is he a step son or an adopted kid? Whatever may be the case, he seems to have made a mess of what would have been a perfect family photo.
It is actually quite difficult to guess what these guys are up to. Maybe, they are a bunch of werewolves about to shapeshift. Or, it could be that they are trying to dance to some popular number. Their hand gestures are certainly quite bizarre for Homo sapiens.
Everyone in the family seems to be crazy about boxing. Hope they don't end up seriously injuring one another. This one certainly makes for a rather awkward family photo. With little efforts, pictures like these can be easily avoided.
If you look closely, you will be able to spot the Incredible Hulk in this rather bizarre family photo. Also, can you see the big shadowy hand emerging out of nowhere?
It looks like a fairly beautiful place to me. But why is everyone looking so bored? This picture takes the idea of awkward family photos to a whole new level.
It appears that mama has a surprise for everybody this year. The Christmas feast seems to follow a slightly different menu. Instead of the roasted turkey, the family has a juicy human being to savor. Since we can only see the poor guy's head, it is quite possible that his other parts already been properly. The young lady just can't wait to take a slice of it. Certainly, family photos don't get any more awkward than this.
