This Photo Of The 'American Gothic' Couple IRL Is Everything

The divine force Twitter account that is ClassicPics made our inner art nerd very happy today after posting this photo of the "American Gothic" couple IRL.

There they are, Mr. and Mrs. OG AG, looking just a bit more cheerful than in the iconic masterpiece to their right. We imagine the two lucky muses could hardly imagine the extent to which their faces (and predilection for pitchforks) would be immortalized as symbols of the American way.

Take a look at the remarkable historical snapshot above and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
