8 Things To Avoid When Taking A 'Selfie' November 06 2015, 0 Comments

Is there anything that can bring someone more derision than an utterly misguided selfie? I mean, we all do selfies. It's the easiest way to get a flattering picture of yourself taken. And clearly, we're all hand-selecting an image that we find to be most flattering...duh! In saying this... There are some selfie clichés that should be avoided at all cost! Like these!

Trying To Be Sexy And Failing Miserably

Trying To Be Sexy And Failing Miserably

You know the minute you try to be sexy, you've already failed, right? Ducklips, flexing ab pics, amateur FHM photo shoots with your neglected kids in the background, are all the opposite of sexy.

Taking It In An Inappropriate Place

Are people always just thinking about taking pics of themselves? I seriously never think about it. Like certainly not at my Nana's funeral. Or like in a Port-a-Potty.

Not Doing A Background Check First

Not Doing A Background Check First

Please, when taking a selfie always do a background check.  No one wants to see your crazy old uncle's plumber butt or your dog humping a pool float in the background. It's really for your own good.

Come on now, fools!  Even the ironic ones are getting tired.

Getting Busted

Selfies should only be done when you're alone. Otherwise, why wouldn't you ask the person there to take the pic for you? Well, I guess if they're washing their hands you wouldn't, but that's why YOU DON'T TAKE PICS IN PUBLIC RESTROOMS! So that's another thing you should avoid. Don't spend any more time than you have to in a public restroom, people.

Appearing 'Forced'

Selfies should appear to come about naturally. Like 'Hey, I'm sitting in front of my laptop, looking kind of cute, let me snap a pic."

Do Anything With Old People Or Babies

Just leave old people and babies out of your desperate attempts to look appealing. Poor kid. He just wanted to drink his milk!

Basically Anything That Reeks Of Desperation

Remember when Justin Bieber tried to hijack the Grammy Awards telecast by airing his competing Live Stream at the same time? And then it crashed and was just kind of a big fail? And then to make up for it, he posted some topless selfies? Yeah, don't do something like that.
