Family Photos Gone Bad— Video

My wife told me that she wants a family photo. Immediately I started thinking of ways to ruin it. Not that I’m going to ruin it, or even take the picture for that matter, but it is fun to think about. The urge to F-up a picture is in my blood.

I’m the king of ruining photos. Throughout my life I’ve ruined countless pictures— most of the time on purpose— occasionally by just being me.

I have a double cowlick that likes to swirl. Most of my youthful pictures feature me looking like Alfalfa. Also, there was a time when I had a humongous adult front tooth, while missing its neighbor tooth.  That made for a fantastic school picture— me smiling like a slapstick idiot with one massive front tooth.

After realizing that I was incapable of taking a good picture, I resorted to ruining them on purpose. Whether it was googly eyes or just a well placed middle finger, I’ve tried it all.

In my last two drivers license photos I’ve looked like an escapee from the loony bin. My current license photo isn’t as funny as the previous one. People were reduced to tears laughing at that one.

Nothing that I’ve pulled off compares to the pictures in this video.
