This is either the most masterful troll in recent memory, or the work of the worst photographer to ever wield a camera. Either way, these family photos are beyond funny. The bad photoshop is almost too bad to believe. Which means it’s probably fake, because it’s the internet. But we don’t even care, we’re just happy to see them.

Pam Dave Zaring posted the family photos on Facebook, inviting the world to marvel at the hilariously bad photoshop done by their photographer.

“Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us….She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos.”

The pictures are … nightmarish. But also, some of the funniest pictures we’ve EVER seen. The photographer/troll claimed that the shadows were bad and she had to photoshop them, but no one ever taught her how. So she just went to town! You really have to see it to believe it.

Since the photos went mega-viral, there’s been an added twist to this bad photoshop fail. The credited photographer, Lesa Hall, has a Facebook page that, if real, is incredibly bizarre. But the whole thing feels like a set-up, with the family and photographer trying to cash in on a little internet fame.

I’m not going to lie, the Donald one made me do that laugh where you sound like a barking seal. Methinks Lesa is a terrible photographer, but a really good internet troll. And I’m here for it.

What say you? Really bad photoshop, or collaborative ruse?
