Low threshold for misery

Some of these are indeed miserable and uncomfortable, but some of them are just bland. Are the pickings really that slim on the Internet for awkward back-to-school pictures? Okay, there are some funny-looking kids, and there are some hilarious clothes, but these people can’t help having oddly-shaped heads and they can’t help having grown up in times of unflattering children’s fashions. They can’t help having parents who dress them badly, either.

There’s miserable and uncomfortable, and then there’s just an unflattering piece of photography.

Maybe I just don’t get it.
