When it's time for the family to get together for your Christmas card photos, you might be tempted to try something fun, silly, or -God help us all- adorable. Resist that temptation. That's just the holiday spirit trying to humiliate you. The results have long been chronicled by our friends over at AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. Here's some of the most egregious.

If erections had their own newspaper, the headline over this photo would read "THOUSANDS KILLED IN GRISLY MURDER."
No good decision has ever been made across a hot tub from a grinning family. For instance, this photographer's decision to snap a picture.
This is a completely normal Christmas photo. Only you can see him.
"Nude family photos in santa hats? If you're just going to make things up, I'll thank you to get the fuck out of my laser office."

As she made it, the sweatshop worker knew no good could come of a size extra, extra small speedo, but she could never have imagined it would lead to anything like this.
"Our Cardinals may just go all the way this season!"
"I'm a Cubs man, myself!"
"SPORTS AS WELL FOR ME BECAUSE I AM A REAL HUMAN LIKE YOU OTHERS! SKREEEE!!!"
When what to my wondering eyes was perceived?
But a man in a chair and a human centipede.
With their mouths to their butts and their colons to their coughs,
