Man on Vacation Without Wife Pretends to Not Have Fun

Have you ever had an opportunity to have a once in a lifetime experience and because you couldn’t take your significant other, you at least thought about not doing it?  Well, Kevin Blandford of Kentucky won an all-expenses paid trip to Puerto Rico and his wife couldn’t go.  He explained in his comments on Reddit that they had a 6 month old daughter and she wasn’t comfortable leaving her, so he went without her.  And to prove that he wasn’t having any fun, he took pictures like the one above.

Fellow redditors were quick to upvote and comment on the photos ranking up over two million views. But they also begged the question, “who was there to take all of these photos on your trip?”  To which the answer came, “A dedicated friend.”  Well that of course means that we are now going into the world of the internet where memes are the ways of flattery/mockery/popularity.  Example:

Just goes to show, that even if you win a trip to Puerto Rico, can’t take your wife, and don’t have a single second of fun, the rest of the world can have a blast at your expense.  Now my wife is really going to be not happy when I go away the next and pull a stunt like this.
