Are there are any incriminating/shameful photos in your yearbooks?

Asked by Demosthenes (7055points) February 16th, 2019

All this talk of blackface and boofing made me wonder if there’s anything I wouldn’t want the media to get their hands on in my yearbooks.

Other than some embarrassing photos (one of a girl picking me up—I was very tiny as a middle schooler and one of me with a bowl cut), I don’t think there’s anything too shameful.

Although, I remember in kindergarten we had a “popcorn powwow” where we made construction paper “Indian” garb, including feathers and a headband, all the little white kids dressed as Native Americans (and eating popcorn). That was just the late ‘90s. I don’t think that would fly nowadays. There is one picture of it in my elementary school yearbook! But I don’t think I appear in the photo.

What about you? Would any of your yearbooks doom your political career?

Is incriminating being seated on the ground at a high soccer with a paper cup held up with someone pouring cider into the cup? ? ?
Just asking ! ! – - The cider was local fresh crushed and squeezed three weeks earlier (guess it was about 5% alcohol).

I don’t remember it was me in that photo.
But the photo was bad.

Not in any yearbook. There were some taken at fraternity parties in the Seventies that would get some people booted from office nowadays.

No. Even way back then I was very conscious of the future.

Just the usual proof of dorkiness.

The wife has pics of me naked which she keeps for fun, but if ever our relationship went south, suppose they’d make for decent bribe material.

Here me and my brother are shooting game; if I remember correct it was a black bear.

And here, unbeknownst to all around me, I’m making a, what could be interpreted these days as indecent, decent gesture to my classmate M. D.

Guess you’d have to be there because I dodn’t see the “indecent gesture,” @rebbel.

Hell, they didn’t even INCLUDE any photos of ME in the yearbook.

I was one of the yearbook photographers so I got to submit the incriminating photos. ;)

Not that I can remember. There might have been photos from the senior trip to Florida. I didn’t go, but there was plenty of partying, I don’t remember if there was maybe photos in the yearbook of some students with beers in their hand, that might be possible, or I might just be thinking of photos that were not in the yearbook.
