Vintage Photographs of the Day: Square America

I found an interesting site called Square America which contains a large collection of vintage photographs. These photographs are part of a larger work called This Is My Country, called "An Epic Survey, Rendered In Photographs, Home Movies, Audio Recordings, And Other Assorted Ephemera, Of Everyday Life In These United States And Of The Ways And Customs Of The American People c.1900-c.1976 (A Work In Progress)."

The pictures at the site range from funny to serious, heart-warming to bizarre. I picked out a few of the pictures that I thought were funny and added some captions to them below.

If you have any captions of your own that you'd like to add for any of these, let's hear them. Come on, make me laugh. ~posted by Daisy

There's no birthday party for us here. Liar.

What are you waiting for? These butts aren't gonna f**k themselves!
(not Daisy's caption and I don't think she'd want you thinking it is- C.)

When Bertha and her friends said they were going bobbing for wieners,
all of the men jumped out of the pool.

A young Sloth (back) and two of his friends who are
obviously quite "close." (NTTAWWT)

Daisy, Laura, and Heidi Renee decided to make a bold fashion
statement on their girls' day out golfing trip.

Half a beer and Fritzi's already going for Earl's pants. Such a floozy.

When Sara saw herself in the mirror wearing her mother's wig,
she scared herself so bad she was frozen in place.

Edwin's first "thrift store Christmas," but not his last.

Men with hats, not to be confused with Men Without Hats.

Excuse us, do you know where we might be able to purchase
some--I think they call it reefer?--for our party?

Every other family on the block played ring toss in the back yard,
but Jimmy's dad thought kid toss was more fun.

What a fashion faux pas!! Everyone knows you shouldn't
wear a grey belt with black shoes!

News Vid Of The Day: Women On Toilet Robbed By Clown

Meant her no harm, my ass. It's a sad state of affairs when an old lady can't even take a dump without some fuckin' clown coming in the window and demanding Oxy. Awesome house, though. I can see why he would target it.

Too bad they're all dead now.
