The hardest I've laughed since cancer

I'm not sure if it's because today is Friday, or if they are really THAT funny, but these had me laughing out loud. Thank you to my friends who know and understand my sense of humor all too well.

And yes, I'm admittedly poking fun. But we are all guilty of having at least one of these in our living room growing up.

These glasses came free with a purchase of Brut cologne.

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

Drake won Best 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. 

I wanted a shot like this for our wedding. Wade 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. My dad's was teal. He wore it with a silk floral shirt and a long necklace with a football player pendant that he got at that year's team banquet. He was THE MAN. (I'm such a lier...or at least I hope and pray I am.)

Once they had two or three, how did they ever find enough time to make more?

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

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

Just a typical afternoon down on the plantation. In a business suit.

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

This photo isn't discolored. The 70's really were that Orange...or so they tell me.

No comment.

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.

Olan Mills is all about versatility. The simple addition of a column turns this generic plantation into Tara, where apparently, someone opened a Hair Cuttery.

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

I got a $20 that says he drives a Camaro.

Yes. Someone spent money on this.

It's so cute when couples have matching hairdos.

B-52's, the early years.

Ever wonder what they were all looking at?
