If there is one thing that has become abundantly clear to me after more than two hours perusing AwkwardFamilyPetPhotos.com, it’s that a good 90% of the time it’s the “family” part of the equation that makes the photo awkward. The pets? Well, they’re just victims.
After creating AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com Mike Bender and Doug Chernack quickly realized the pet photos were fan favorites. So the guys created an entire site (and now, a book) dedicated to pets and the people who love them a little too much.
Just in time for the holiday season, the book is filled with never-before-seen photos, essays, and graphics. If you’ve ever read the captions below the photos on the site, you know those essays are bound to be hilarious. Purchase for a friend, relative, or just set this bad boy on your coffee table for hours of entertainment for you or anyone else who happens to stop by and get a gander at this gem.
To whet your appetite, I spent the last hour culling through hundreds of photos on the site and have whittled it down to the 30 images you’re about to see. I’m willing to wager there is more than one serial killer in the group below, but oh my lands, this was, perhaps, the funnest thing I’ve ever compiled for Babble, I kid you not. Do you know how hard it was to choose a mere 30? I laughed out loud at every single photo you’re about to see, and you will too, I promise.
