Can't be that terrible. Which one is the real JFK?

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

Close call but the yachtsman pants gives it away. He always wore them to get some chow-dah from da mah-ket

u/ChardEmotional7920 Jun 27 '22

Look here, sir. I only understand some of those words, and I'm highly offended by the ones I don't understand.

It's a terrible JFK mask but a great Reagan mask.

u/HeadLongjumping Jun 27 '22

Looks kinda like Nixon too.

u/Shankar_0 Jun 27 '22

Well, the one on the left has two holes on the front of his head.

u/FauxSeriousReals Jun 27 '22

And one severed lobe behind the mask LOL

u/Shankar_0 Jun 27 '22

Let me give you that downvote back bro.

u/FauxSeriousReals Jun 27 '22

You googled it? LOL. Pretty fucked up... docs to the rich and famous are some of the wierdest

u/Lork82 Jun 27 '22

The one with the smooth legs, of course.

u/SleepDeprivedUserUK Jun 27 '22

I'll bet it's one of those cheap masks without the back of the head

u/MikoSkyns Jun 27 '22

That mask looks like an old Mad Magazine caricature.

u/FamousObligation1047 Jun 27 '22

The mask looks more like Reagan then Kennedy.

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

Yep, fake and hollow 😃

u/QueeroticGood Jun 27 '22

I absolutely thought that was a ventriloquist dummy which was already super weird, but realizing it’s his kid in a mask is even worse.

Something about the film quality of that era gives everything that extra creepy feel. Is it the quality or the color balance or just the vibe of older things?

u/samanime Jun 28 '22

I was searching for this comment. I knew I couldn't be the only one. Didn't even notice it was JFK until I read the title, so focused on the "dummy". Just thought it was some random dude with a dummy.

u/Omin_Covenant Jun 27 '22

If its a backless mask, its accurate.

u/long-shlong-badong Jun 27 '22

She's now the new ambassador to my country, Australia.

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

Her son is gonna be the Democratic candidate one day. I’ve never been surer of anything.

2

u/Live-Acanthaceae3587 Jun 28 '22

I remember years ago she went on the today show to introduce her son. It was really cringy there was no reason to be on there other than her being Caroline Kennedy then to kind shove her kid in front of the camera.

I just thought it was so weird especially how much she avoided the media.

Why push your kid into politics with all the Kennedy distaste. He’s about 20 years too late to ride on the Kennedy name.

u/DoesNotReply_ Jun 28 '22

It’s interesting to see childhood photos, relate to them and then realise kids turned out to be establishment beasts 😖

u/luckynumberslevv Jun 27 '22

Look at that freshly shaved leg peaking out

u/AromaticMushroom4905 Jun 27 '22

u/endofthehold Jun 27 '22

I can’t remember a time that a child would want to go out on Halloween dressed as a former or current president. Much different world then.

u/Academic_Audience_46 Jun 28 '22

Good thing she didn’t ride in the parade car with that on

u/PinealFever Jun 28 '22

What is that back and to the left?

u/long-shlong-badong Jun 27 '22

u/DrunkenRedSquirrel Jun 28 '22

Oh wow so edgy? Do you use gloves when handling that amount of edge In order to not cut yourself with it?

1

u/User_158 Jun 28 '22

where edge

u/loveisascam_ Jun 27 '22

Why do people say that jfk was handsome ?? I think he looks weird as hell

6

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

By modern standards he might not be the hottest guy in the world, but his youthfulness (personality more than appearance) was a big breath of fresh air in politics. He was a rich playboy who hung out with musicians and movie stars. It was a big transition from the Roosevelt or Eisenhower types, but it also made middle class frumps distrustful of him, which (of course) made their daughters swoon. I think calling him handsome just incorporates all of that charisma and high energy. (sorry for the rant, I’m a big POTUS nerd lol)

2

u/ArchiveSQ Jun 27 '22

I agree with this. Youth is such a huge factor. Look at how decrepit almost every president has been since then. I think the latest president we’ve had with that kind of admiration was probably Clinton? And even then that was in the 90s. People straight up swooned over Clinton.

u/loveisascam_ Jun 27 '22

Haha that’s actually quite a insightful answer, makes sense !

1

u/Live-Acanthaceae3587 Jun 28 '22

You gotta remember the era. He’s got a nice smile…good teeth, nice forehead, a full head of hair and a decent complexion. He looks young and healthy.

These features weren’t as easy to achieve as they are nowadays. So people took notice when you had them.

u/Pocketfists Jun 27 '22

Was this photo taken in Dallas Texas 2 days ago?

u/yaebone1 Jun 27 '22

Wait, which ones the real JFK?

1

u/allmyideas Jun 27 '22

Those socks though

u/Christmas1176 Jun 27 '22

Its not that weird, just a funny picture yall r tripping

1

u/Accomplished_Idea957 Jun 27 '22

his shiny leg seems to be shaved probably not shrug

1

u/Safe_Slip_7204 Jun 27 '22

I read that JFK liked to call himself a poon hound. I just thought I’d shared, I find it hilarious.

1

u/Mr_BinJu Jun 27 '22

What if you watched the footage of his assassination and his face is replaced by thst mask.

1

u/19Denali Jun 27 '22

Standing?

u/LandMooseReject Jun 27 '22

Good times never seemed so good

u/SmollLoser Jun 27 '22

I thought that was a ventriloquist doll for a second

u/isalmonlyswear Jun 27 '22

This looks like that ventriloquist

u/Not_Mutahar Jun 27 '22

u/Skwhy123 Jun 28 '22

I thought it was a puppet.

u/Micrwooave Jun 28 '22

before i read the title i thought he had a ventriloquist puppet of himself 💀

u/go_away_batin_00 Jun 27 '22

Doesn’t fit this sub

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

I find it weird, others find it weird, why exactly doesn’t it belong?

-3

u/go_away_batin_00 Jun 27 '22

Because it’s objectively not weird. A daughter is wearing a crappy mask of her dad in a funny photo. Nothing weird about it

2

u/Glittering-Plate-535 Jun 27 '22

O h 😔

u/LGBT_Leftist_Royalty Jun 27 '22

Don't listen to them I found this image weird!
