The internet meme Awkward Family Photos has certainly faded from its former glory days as the golden child of internet humor, but that hasn’t stopped authors Mike Bender and Dough Chernack from developing their next great wrinkle on the same embarrassing theme — Awkward Family Pet Photos ($10). As you’d expect from the title, the book is chock-full of strange, hilarious, and flat out crazy photos of families and their beloved (re: helpless) animal companions. Give a copy to the pet lover you know before this year’s wave of Christmas portraits appointments are made, and perhaps you’ll earn some inter-species karma for saving both parties from total humiliation.
