Matching outfits, unidentifiable poses, odd facial expressions, and a background that takes up too much attention – we’ve hit the jackpot here. This couple wanted some goofy photos to put online before New Year’s Day, and by Jove, they have them.
While they’re trying to look as unenthused as possible in some of the photos, they’re clearly having a good time. And why shouldn’t they be? It’s a nice tree, they have some nice outfits on, and they’re goofing off putting together pictures that will get people laughing for the whole year.
Now This Is Fun
You could raise a family of four in pants like those. Just look at those things. Incredible. We haven't seen trouser tech like that since the Zoot suits. Anyway, these two seem to be having fun, but where is all this fun happening? Well, if the information is to be believed, it's in this little island country called Cuba in the nineteen fifties.
How on Earth did these two big Berthas reach such a country during a very tumultuous time in its history? Well, chances are it was right BEFORE that tumultuous time started. There was some fun to be had then, as we can see.
Plenty of Time to Get It Right
Not everybody is photogenic. Posing feels weird, smiling feels weird, and having to take a picture with someone else doubles the weirdness for many. Of course, if you get married, you kind of have to get some pictures taken, or nobody will ever know.
This couple is still working on it, and while the pictures might not have that magical sparkle, they still seem nice enough. Plus, these two are going to have plenty of time to work on their posing techniques. Nowadays, there are tons and tons of photos that don't go on save-the-date cards, but they can still become treasured keepsakes.
Stop, Please, We've Had Enough
Going to get awkward photos done with your significant other is no longer an accident that you try to cover up – it's something you do intentionally. That's what the story behind this picture is, and we really want to believe it. Every single detail has been perfected to make this picture cringe-worthy, even if you know it was staged.
The creepy stache, the listless hair, the thoughtfully-bad clothing choices. The looks, the poses, the way the hands and feet are. Colorful socks and sandals are the finishing touch to this horrific picture. For this couple's sake, we hope they took real ones next.
Yes, We Are Farmers
Just in case you couldn't be sure, this picture comes to us from the great state of Kansas, which has farms, fields, farmers, and some roads, we think. This odd couple is standing in front of a huge harvesting machine (the type is unknown, we can't see much detail) and showing off the fruit of the land to the camera.
The guy looks a little bit like Steve Buscemi, but likely he's just sun-weathered from his time growing oats, corn, wheat, or whatever else the crop of the year is. It almost looks a little staged, but the guy's hand is all blurry, so we don't think they were posing.
