Throwback Thursday

I got this as an email - it's HILARIOUS!

Talk about a third wheel...

Olan Mills Backdrop #11: The Library, one of their most popular themes, as seen in this photo of the young Unabomber and his wife.

The Library might be more believable if the shelves weren't sloping downhill

Patrick broke ranks and chose drag over the bow tie

You'd think Pearle Vision would throw in another two pairs for free.

Oh, this is super. What better way to capture the charm and innocence of a child than to plunk him down amid the coarse trappings of a life lived in pursuit of wealth -- oversized bills, an adding machine and the Wall Street Journal -- and make him sit inside a briefcase? (They probably just fold up the little demon right in there to carry him home.) The finishing touch is the globe, which completes the portrait of the young Antichrist in Chess King vest and Red Goose loafers, plotting his takeover of the world (insert maniacal laugh). That is, as soon as someone changes his poopy diaper.

Bobbi isn't the first waitress to fall for her manager, but she and Dale both got fired from Shoney's.

Dawn and her recently exhumed sister, Gorgotha, pose with Scraps.

This photo isn't discolored. The 70s really were that Orange .

Wanted a shot like this for my wedding. The Mrs. said no.

It's called a leisure suit, ladies and germs, and if you didn't have one in the early 70s, you were a big fat loser. Mine was teal. I wore it with a silk floral shirt and a long necklace with a football player pendant that we all got at that year's team banquet. I was THE MAN.

No Comment

Olan Mills backdrop #4: Bucolic Meadow with Split Rail Fence. Is that an animal carcass behind her?

A pose like this will get you kicked right out of the Convention.

Those glasses came free with a purchase of Brut cologne.

Thoughtful Lance. Mirthful Lance. Two sides of a delightful coin.

Drake won Bitchin'est Senior Mullet by a landslide.

That dude wore a tie for nothing.

The Purvis family made several stops along the Oregon Trail to document their six-month journey. This photo was taken just two weeks before the dysentery took Momma to Jesus.

At the Southern Baptist Convention?

Kenneth and his prom date

I got 20 that says he drives a Camero

Hiroshima , 1945. The last known photo of Kelli and Senor Loco.

Someone spent money on this.

WTF? B-52's, the early years ?

She's looking for the speaker that's piping in "Muskrat Love" so she can blast it with her laser eyes.

Nothing says 1973 quite like denim and helmet hair

LOL...this totally made my day! I laughed so hard because they looked alot like my family's albums! My bros & sis were teens in the 70s and had those cool cameras with the flash bulbs on them! Righteous, aye?

Anne said...

I am still laughing hysterically. Dave was totally like the guy with the camero caption. I think Olan Mills still uses ALL of those backgrounds.
