Voluntary self-humiliation

I got a package the other day from my aunt. My brothers and I gave Mom's sisters several boxes of pictures after Mom died, telling them to divide them up amongst themselves. We had already gone through the boxes and taken what we wanted. Still, my aunts were kind enough to share with us some pictures that we either missed or, more likely, hoped they would discard. Among these pictures were school photographs, which, for some bizarre reason, I'm going to share with y'all here now.

Me in 5th grade. Why do I feel that this one should come with "What, me worry?" written under it?

6th grade. I look like I'm ready to hurl.

7th grade. My classmates voted this one the best picture in the group. Of course, they were all boys...

8th grade. My friend John Collins was standing at the door of the room yelling, "Hey Holton! Say Provolone!" This accounts for the odd look on my face. Well, OK, odder than usual.

High school graduation. I look like a ventriloquist dummy.

Enjoy! Should I turn any or all of these into icons?
