Since the dawn of time, people with nothing in common and zero to say to each other have been coexisting in homes against their will. We call this a "family." But it wasn't until the invention of the camera that every uneasy hug and forced smile between these disparate souls could be preserved eternally.
Thanks to the hilarious website Awkward Family Photos, these embarrassing moments are now available for the entire world to mock.
