Name that Grimace

For your amusement… some photos from another of my vintage knitting books. I got such a kick out of this model’s expressions. I kept wondering what directions he was getting. “Look smarmy!”? “Look stupid!”?

So let’s have some fun. Caption any or all of the photos, or say what you think the photographer’s instructions were to the model. Click photos for bigger, if you dare. I’ve put my own thoughts down as a start.

Expression 1

1. “Do ya think I’m sexy?”

expression2

2. “These gas pains are a killer! But I’m smiling through the pain.”

Expression 3
3. White men can’t dance.
Expression 4
4. “You want me to do the splits while wearing these pants? Are you crazy?”
Expression 5
5. Photographer to model: “Look awkward and uncomfortable!”
Expression 6
6. “oops! I didn’t mean to hit the ball through that window.”

OK, it’s your turn!

    omg, I have that book from when I started knitting. I thought it was bad then, too. But, I still made your #3 for my daddy, and it was all good. :o)

    Is Margene okay? o.0

    Isn’t it amazing men will do for a little money and some vodka.

    They seem to be channelling Sean Connery…?

  8. Nora says:

    OMG. They’re all so bad, I don’t know where to start! Somehow the word “laxative” comes to mind…

    #6 – Who wears short-shorts? I wear short-shorts!

    They’re so seriously bad too, it’s hilarious.

  10. Carrie says:

    1. Aw, I sat in dog crap.
    2. doooooooood, I am *sooooooo* baked. /snerk
    3. My hair is so heavy on this one side.
    4. It’s my head shot for 3rd Rock From The Sun
    5. Stunt model for Bernie
    6. If I look really intense, maybe they won’t notice I’m part sasquatch.

    He looks a lot like one of the German exchange students we had here.
    They are decent sweaters despite the strange.

  12. 1) Can’t they see it’s time for a bathroom break?

  13. Chris says:

    Wow, I’m speechless. #5 is just crazy – seven layers of clothing and no shoes. Half drunk, and the hat looks waaaay too small.

    Really nice sweaters, though. I’d knit a few of them.

  14. Laurie says:

    #5: Do you think the doc will ever be able to fix my knee so I can model again? No, I haven’t thought about my hip yet. Is that broken too??

  15. Chris says:

    I’m not sure I can come up with better captions – yours are great! He’s very Cary Grantesque, isn’t he?
