Children’s photos sure to give you a Long Awkward Pause

Because tomorrow is National Grandparents Day, and we know our grandparents would never say anything bad about any photo of their grandchildren, I and the rest of the staff over at Long Awkward Pause will say it for them during this week’s Saturday Six.

You’re welcome, Grandparents…

Omawarisan: There’s so much here! Here’s what I’m settling on. This kid has huge hands. Her hands are like white baseball gloves.

      1. And snakes. Don’t forget I like snakes, too. I will come at you with reptiles, Young Ned. All pointy teeth and scales, heading in your general direction. Be afraid.

No one is watching, I swear...
