When you're a kid, your father is the coolest guy in the world. Then you grow up and recognize him as the rigid and controlling bastard who ruined your life. (Just kidding, Dad.) On Father's Day, however, we can all look back and remember when Dad was just that goofy dude in the awkward family photos.


In honor of Father's Day (which is this Sunday, by the way), Asylum pals Awkward Family Photos helped us put together a collection of photos honoring the eternal awkwardness of dear old Dad. Check out the shots here and buy their book for more awkwardness from the whole fam. Happy Father's Day !
