Unless of course his NAME was Foster. I can’t tell. I just hope Camp Foster 2012 had a better photographer.
I can see it now.
Kid: *innocently reading*
Mom: *Flashes camera and runs.*
[six months pass]
Kid: MOM!!! What are you WEARING?!? I’m going to kill myself now, you know, and it’ll be the only appropriate response. Life as we know it is over.
Mom: It’s not a bad picture. you look cute as a button!
Kid: I look like a concentration camp survivor.
Mom: But aren’t you a CUTE concentration camp survivor? You have the cutest little exposed bone structure.
So start with a bad photograph–and let’s not beat around the bush, that is a bad picture, unless you want child protective services to think you starved your kid for months on end, and then forced him to live in a piece of carry-on luggage.
Make it worse by dyeing it in urine. Now he’s not only in a foster program, which could be good or bad, but he has scurvy.
Theory number two: your JPG for the Camp Foster 2011 tee shirt submission had to fit in a 12×12 square, and every part of the child must be visible to make sure nothing’s missing. If EVERYBODY at Camp Foster looks like they were just unpacked from a hatbox, then really, nobody looks like they were just unpacked from a hatbox, right?
