Frightening photos. I can’t believe that some of these ever saw the light of day.


Wow! These are absolutely hilarious. Was the last guy a beauty pageant queen or carrying an oozy?


#4 and #9 crack me up! If they were mine I’m not sure I would have been so brave to show them!


Fantastic selection of photos- each one simply hilarious
My favourite is #6- 2 guys in some kind of shop- brilliant

The Happiest Place on earth.

My family also doesn’t approve of all my picture taking……until later…..much later!



@Jessiev, nope these guys sent their funny photos into awkwardfamilyphotos.com of their own free will!

I guess they saw the funny side!!


Poor seatbelt guy! Wear a shirt next time…


That is hilarious. Thanks for the laughs! And I salute all these families for submitting…I toss embarrassing photos. :-)

Aw, that was definitely worth it! Thanks Katie. I needed that. My favorite is Tan Tastic. What was she thinking?
