People Keen On Sharing Awkward Family Photos

Every family has an awkward picture like this one and are more willing than ever to share it.

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Everyone has an awkward family photo, and they’re very keen on sharing it.

But that’s not always a good thing according to Mike Bender and Doug Chernack, co-authors of Awkward Family Photos (Three Rivers Press, May 4, 2010), who’ve compiled 300 of the funniest, strangest family pictures they’ve found thanks to their popular blog of the same name.

The authors are flooded with peculiar pictures daily, but some aren’t always met with laughter.

Once a dentist’s assistant passed along “the most shocking picture of a cesarian” they’ve ever seen through Bender’s grandmother.

They’ve had to pass up on many other photos for being too cute or staged, but luckily, they have a never-ending supply of strange pics from their own families.

Therefore, there are no plans to open an Awkward Family Photos studio to meet their demand any time soon.
