Le Moyne’s family weekend looked like it went really well. So many of you were kind enough to take time out of your busy schedules to give your parents and siblings the grandest of Le Moyne tours. You guys want to know whose family didn’t get the grandest of tours? You guessed it. With smiles on their faces, bags already packed, my parents informed me that rather than come to Le Moyne’s family weekend, they would be attending my sister’s family weekend at Geneseo. They made these stupid excuses, saying that it’s because I “still live at home” and I “see them every day” and I “make them cook me food and do my laundry” and on and on. Whatever. What follows is my revenge on families everywhere. Blame my parents.
1 Cheer: I’ll Do it For You, Honey…
Woman: “I know I shrank this shirt in the dryer but it’s the only color that works with my eyes.”
Man: “…Want me to pull my shirt up so you don’t feel so insecure?”
Woman: “Want me to grow a beard so you don’t feel so insecure?”
Man: “Take the photo.”
2 Cheers: Say…Surprise!
The most difficult thing to figure out about this photo is who is more surprised. My money’s on the woman; I think she just realized who the photographer really is. As for the guy in front of her, I’m almost 100% positive that this is her son, but I’m puzzled as to why he’s nearly as surprised as she is. Best guess? I think he just realized who the photographer really is.
3 Cheers: I’ve Had the Time of My Life
If you read-up on this photo you’ll discover that this woman ended up launching her child into the sand. Kids are tough (and it looks like pretty soft sand) so naturally the kid was fine, but let’s talk about the husband. He just secured an invaluable get-out-of-jail-free card. For example: “How dare you forget our anniversary!” can be countered with, “How dare you throw our child into the sand!” “Honey, how could you forget the broccoli again?” can be easily refuted by saying, “The same way you forgot to hold onto our child.”
1 Jeer: Don’t Ever Forget Me
Of all the pictures I’ve seen in my life, this one just scares me. Why isn’t the dad (?) smiling? Is he questioning his choice to allow his daughter to wear a furry lampshade on her head? Does he regret picking out the same sunglasses for he and his daughter? Is he jealous of the luscious locks his son has?
2 Jeers: No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem
Man in the Middle: “We can’t have our shirts on for this photo. I don’t do 20 push-ups a day for nothing.”
Man on the Right: “I just want the camera to see the tattoos I just got.”
Man on the Left: “…Were we supposed to go tanning?”
3 Jeers: I Want a Permanent Memory
One photo has managed to highlight quite a few bad decisions. Most blatantly obtuse, does this guy realize that he paid to have the faces of the people he assumedly “loves” on his back, where he’ll never be able to see them unless he poses shirtless in front of a full-size mirror?
