44 Awkward and Uncomfortable Finds

From Brutal Braces Blogs to Awkward Tight Sights

— January 23, 2010 — Pop Culture
So I just finished watching Season 1 of the English version of ‘The Office.’ I had seen a few episodes before, but never really gave it my full attention until this week (thank you Netflix).

I have to say that it is one of the most hilarious, awkward and uncomfortable TV shows that I have ever seen. I have to hand it to the English… they are the very best at making you cringe and crack up at the same time.

So in honor of all things awkward and uncomfortable (puberty, elevator farts, poorly timed jokes about ethnicity, etc.) check out this cluster which will make you want to crawl into a corner and die… but in a funny way, of course.
