A little Geeky Daddy advice: Be mindful of what your kids wear or quote on picture day. Because the internet doesn’t forget.
Don’t let your kids make the same mistakes we did. You do not want to be stuck paying the therapy bills if your child becomes an internet meme in their future.
We have all looked back through our yearbooks and seen ourselves in (what we thought at the time) were some stylish threads. Z Cavaricci pants in the early 90’s, plaid button downs in the “grunge” era, Mullets, women in shoulder pads that made the football team jealous…
Here is my list of the 10 or so worst yearbook photos on the internet and how to help your child avoid making the list:
10: Make sure you child has NOT done any drugs on picture day
9 If you child plans on using a quote, you may want to verify their source…
or at least make the quote hardcore
8 Proofread your child’s shirt before she leaves the house
7 See number 8….I am assuming the shirt said “EAGLE”?
6 Breathalyzer is never a bad idea on picture day
5 Be mindful of the background when posing for the camera
4 If your school has a “no burka policy”, that may exclude chain mail
3 If your child is going to roll with their initials, be aware of possible alternate meanings
2 I am torn between a “hipster before hipster-ing was cool” joke and a “rainbow hipster” joke here. Either way, just…no
1. You can never foresee future popular television programming but how did this happen?
Best Troll: I am guessing Stephanie was an ex girlfriend. Or at least she is now…
He might not be able to hit anything with a blaster, but at least this stormtrooper was facing the right direction
I’ve got nothing on this one. Nothing at all
