Celebrate Grandparents Day With the 10 Most Awkward Grandparent Photos of All Time

So that's why my socks keep disappearing.

This Sunday, September 9, is National Grandparents Day!

Obviously, this is a special day to honor and respect your grandparents (and your parents, since they’re your kids’ grandparents) with flowers and sappy cards and hopefully bacon.

It’s also a special day to honor the incredible awkwardness of ourselves and our families, and to take comfort in the fact that it’s clearly genetic. To that end, I present to you the Ten Most Awkward Grandparent Photos of All Time, courtesy of the awesomely hilarious folks at Awkward Family Photos.

In case you’ve been living in a biodome for the last couple years and haven’t heard of it, Awkward Family Photos is a site that literally makes me cry laughing. Every time. They have an app so you can take the awkwardness with you, everywhere you go, and now (OMG) they even have an Awkward Family Photos Show that premieres tomorrow on the YouTube channel Nerdist.

    Like your grandmother didn't have that giant can of Miss Breck in her bathroom. Even more awkward: my grandfather also used the Miss Breck hairspray to keep his comb-over in place.

    Soon.
    Or now. Now is fine. Question: why do they look so proud of this? What's the backstory here? Restaurant didn't give them the early bird special? Neighbor bragged that his beets were bigger? Grandma finally snapped and didn't want to clean anymore?

    I'm not sure what I'm most jealous of.
    The fact that someone has grandmas this awesome, or the Costco-size bin of red licorice on the table.

    You know what that is in his mouth? It's a circular knitting needle. Is this why my grandma was so into knitting? Shudder.
