9 hilarious times when family dinner was anything but picture-perfect

Family dinner as in institution is always picture-perfect; the actual family dinner never is. Here is a 9-point tribute to the art of family dinner.
  • The perfectly executed family meal is as rare and beautiful a thing as the "Mona Lisa" and probably just has hard to pull off too. In honor of family dinner, here are 9 of our favorite moments:

  • 1. The nights when dinner started like this ...

  • and always ended at McDonald's. Without fail.

  • 2. The meals younger siblings experimented with new eating styles ...

  • and did themselves bodily harm.

  • 3. The baby brother or sister who REFUSED to swallow their food ...

  • and wore it instead.

  • 4. The dish mom made that you hated ...

  • and made you try, every time.

  • 5. The time you would not give in and eat what you hated ...

  • and Dad lost his temper.

  • 6. The days you were assigned post-dinner dish duty ...

  • and wanted to lay down and die.

  • 7. The times you had something important to say ...

  • Advertisement
  • and your sibling was having none of it.

  • 8. The rare times you thought you wanted dessert ...

  • and immediately regretted your decision.

  • 9. The moments you caught Mom sitting there like this ...

  • and the sheer chaos that unfolded around her.

  • A painting capturing all that family dinner really is would be as beautifully awful as a flaming train wreck, worthy to hang in any home. Comment below with your greatest family dinner moments.
