Selfies are a very vain activity. I'm not saying that to criticize them. I think selfies are great! The problem is that you're so focused on yourself that you don't check to see what's going on in the background. That can be a problem if you're getting photobombed or if there is a speeding train heading your way.
Embarrassing is the last way you want to describe your selfie. Cute, well lit, sexy, goofy - those are words you want to describe your selfie, but never embarrassing. Unfortunately people's vanity mixed with their lack of awareness has created some of these selfies you can only describe as embarrassing.
With that being said, we found 50 selfie photos that will either make you fall to the floor with laughter, or cringe really, really hard. You might even do both. Some of them are that bad. Prepare yourself for an amazing ride through selfie fail heaven. #37 will absolutely knock your socks off!
The worst selfies are the ones that end up having a flaw because of a weird background. What's worse is that most people don't tend to recognize this flaw and end up posting these selfies online for the world to see. This dad over here took a selfie with his child and failed to factor in for the weird background and how it spoiled the fun of the photo.
Perhaps in appreciation of the photo, the dad went on with posting the picture online and didn't comprehend that there was a weird background. Only once that picture was posted online for the world to see, was the dad able to realize that his son's head looked like it was coming out of a dog's backside. This got a hilarious reaction from his friend following.
2. Spider Check
Sometimes when you are not having the best of days, your fate can be seen through the selfies you take. Considering how many selfies a normal person takes during a day, it really is interesting to note that you should take extra precaution to ensure that there are no anomalies around you. These two friends were fans of taking selfies and were taking one to share on their social media handle. They liked going with burst mode, as that captured their real essence.
Just when the camera had been turned on, they noticed that they were not alone in the selfie and had a nasty looking spider position in between their heads. Naturally they got surprised and shocked at the presence and all of that was captured in the camera for us to laugh over.
Dogs can really be a hassle to manage within a selife. They have the weirdest expressions when it comes to taking pictures and while we humans have mastered the art of bringing our best smile for the cameras, dogs lack far behind in this case. This dog over here was perplexed with the selfies these two friends were taking and wanted to be a part of the photo, albeit in a different way.
Thus, when it came to taking the picture, the dog felt too shy to be a part of this photo and moved his backside to the camera, so that he could hide. This didn't really go down well in the photo as the antics spoiled the fun and it was clearly evident that the dog wasn't comfortable with the photo being taken.
The world around us is full of weird things. Since all of us are busy in what we are doing, we fail to see the weirdness happening around us and just continue with what we are doing. This mom over here was having a good time with her daughter and was out at the river bed to enjoy life under the sun. She took a couple of selfies on the sides of the beach as well and went on to post them on her social media for the world to see.
However, when she posted this picture online, people noticed how some guys in the back were busy cramming a baby inside a cannon. This really is a weird occurrence and we hope the baby is safe. Please don't try cramming a baby inside a cannon.
5. Hashtag Flushed
Being in a bathroom is a vulnerable place to be. No one feels one hundred percent comfortable in one, except for maybe their own. That might be why so many people post god-awful selfies in their restroom, as if they don't realize they are in a porcelain palace. In this case, this woman is in a public restroom. You'd think that would be a clear indicator that you shouldn't take a picture. For one, it's a private place. I'm sure people trying to take a tinkle in the next stall don't want to hear the click of a camera.
The other thing that makes taking a picture in a public restroom a bad idea is that it will never make for a beautiful picture. People will always be distracted by the toilet behind you, no matter how clean it is. That is a very clean toilet, by the way.
One of the major trends making rounds across social media nowadays is to post a picture after having visited the gym. This guy wanted to be a part of this trend, and it was visible that he had the muscles to show for it. He had been going to the gym for long enough to know that he now had a good photo to show the world his hard work.
However, the guy didn't have anyone to take the picture of his toned body for him and thus had to ask his mom for the favor. When he did post the picture online, he got a lot of stick from viewers who were laughing at how hilarious it was for someone this big to have their picture taken by their mom. Please check your background guys.
7. No Traffic
Some people just think that they can lie while posting a selfie, without getting any stick or without worrying about the ramifications. This girl was getting late for office and wanted her boss to believe that she was late because she faced a lot of traffic. To solidify her claim of traffic on the road, she took an even concrete step to post pictures of herself in a car with a caption saying that the road was full of traffic.
However, eagled eyed viewers weren't buying any of this on Twitter and one person zoomed in to the shades she was wearing and looked up ahead to see that the roads were literally empty, with no traffic on them. This girl was lying and had not given her picture a second look to clear all giveaways.
8. When You Selfie, You See the Ring
I don't mean to scare anyone, but I'm pretty sure that that's the Ring girl behind this young lady. You'd think that a ghost-murderer would wait until after its victim was done taking picture before it killed them, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. The Ring girl must have died before selfies and vanity became a big thing in our culture. Actually, that has to be true. That girl died back in the days of the VHS tape.
The best we can hope for this young lady is that that's not the Ring girl behind yet. Instead it might just be her sister. In that case, the sister is going to get a whooping for ruining the selfie. "GET OUT OF MY PICTURES. NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR GHOST-LOOKING SELF BEHIND ME!"
When I was in school, the worst thing I had to contend with her your normal bullies. You know the kind of guys I'm talking about. They run in packs, have very little to lose, and make your life a living hell. After looking at this picture, I think I prefer my old school bullies over whatever it is these girls have to deal with. This selfie has revealed that these girls have some kind of Bringer of Death roaming their halls.
That might just be a kid in a black sweater standing in a weird way, but I choose to believe that it's some kind of demon creature. I think that's because I've been watching too many horror movies lately. Either way, if these girls ever turn up at the bottom of a river, we know who to talk to first.
10. Nasal Angle
This girl was very adamant on taking the best selfies with this new dress around and didn't want anyone to tell her that her pictures weren't good enough. So, when she went to the bathroom to click one picture with the dress on, she expected the picture to be good enough for social media. When she did click the picture and saw how it looked on the top, she posted it online and went to sleep.
When this girl woke up next morning, she was welcomed with a ton of comments online calling her out for not noticing the zoomed in naval cavity on the left hand bottom side of the picture. This picture really went viral after that and this girl became an overnight internet star for all the wrong reasons to be honest.
11. She Picks You
For whatever reason, old people and kids love to pick their nose. I think it's because kids don't realize that they shouldn't do it, and old people just don't care anymore. I can understand that. It's not either of those groups' fault. It's your fault if you're taking a cute selfie and some twerp is digging for green gold behind you. Always be wary of kids while you're taking a photo. At the very least they may try to rip the phone from your hands so they can play cell phone games on your phone. Trust me. I have a nephew. I know.
This could have been an appetizing photo of some squid on a stick, but I don't know about you, but I don't like to think about eating and nose picking at the same time.
Okay, yeah we do know that most of the selfies that we see on social media are really pretentious. People want to act like they have a very cool lifestyle and everyone should take note of their lifestyle, when really there isn't anything worth liking about their lifestyle. This girl wanted the whole world to see how she had slept and how someone else had taken a picture of her.
However, if there was one thing that she didn't account for, was the fact that there was a mirror in the background and what she was up to was clearly visible. Who even takes a picture of themselves with eyes closed, to make it feel like someone else is prying on them? This girl deserves an Oscar for this acting performance that she has mastered.
Picture this. It's your wedding day. You've been imagining it your entire life, and it's actually all coming true. You've met your perfect soulmate. Your parents get along. You love each other. The wedding went off without a hitch. It was a small wedding with just a handful of friends and family. A few months pass and you go to look at your wedding photos. That's when you see a little goblin creature photo-bombing every single photo. Consider that instant grounds for divorce. Your marriage is a bad omen.
All jokes aside, this is creepy. I wonder who that little creature is. I can't tell if it's a kid, an old man, or a garden gnome who came to life. No matter what it is, they should feel fear in their hearts that it came that close to them without them knowing.
14. Face Off
One thing you never expect when buying a carpet is for there to be hidden faces in it. Out of all the designs you can buy, like Persian or quilt, you never really ask for hidden faces. Unfortunately, this woman bought a rug with a hidden face in it, so Snapchat took it upon itself to do a face swap. Don't you hate it when Snapchat does that? It's like, I like my own face, dude. Stop swapping me.
I'm always surprised where Snapchat finds faces. It makes you wonder what's going on. Are those ghosts trapped inside of objects? Or does my soft serve ice cream just sort of resemble my Uncle Phil without his soul having to be trapped inside of it? I hope the second is true, or else that means that I ate my Uncle Phil earlier.
15. Dad Partying
Some girls take a lot of photos within their home and then post these photos online for everyone to see. Everyone has that one spot in their home, where they are comfortable with taking a picture and the lighting also is very good. This woman had seen that one spot and was wondering if she could take as many pictures from that spot as possible.
It was when she was taking her umpteenth selfie from the spot that she saw some figure lurking behind her, through her selfie camera. She didn't take much notice of it and went to post the pictures online. Her friends who looked at the picture couldn't hold back their laughter as her dad was having a good time partying behind her. This picture surely deserves some space in the memory book for everyone to see.
16. Great White Selfie
I generally stay away from the ocean. I don't trust what's in there. If you think you're safe on a boat, you're crazy. Have you ever seen a ten ton whale breach water? If an underwater behemoth wanted to get you, it'll get you. I don't care what kind of boat you're on. The only way to stay safe is to stay on dry land. Even then, I don't feel completely safe from the creatures of the deep. Don't see my point? Well, let's look at this selfie as evidence then.
That shark is perfectly capable of breaching the water and biting that dude's head off. Hopefully that didn't happen, but this is exactly why you never take your eyes off the water. That's when the creatures will get you. My fear could be wrong, but I'd rather be alive than right.
17. Right Opportunity
If there ever is a love story that could beat the Twilight in being one of the best romantic in the world, it has to be the connection between dogs and ice cream. Dogs really do love ice cream to their core and want a cone for themselves every day. They don't really agree with the concept of sharing and want a corn for themselves rather than for everyone.
This girl was taking a picture with an ice cream cone with her when she saw her dog in the background eyeing the ice cream in the greediest look you would ever see. The dog really had his eyes on the ice cream and we expect him to make a dash for it as soon as possible. This picture must have been followed with some really hilarious events and we wished we could have seen them.
Just like we mentioned above, some people really do need to make sure that they don't have any weird background in the picture they are posting for the world to see. It is necessary that your picture be void of any such case and you should be sure of it before you go and post this picture online for everyone to see. This girl took one of those dark selfies and we couldn't really understand what was happening behind her.
While the woman looked good in the picture she had taken, there was some weird thing happening behind her. Some little kid behind her was having a rather intimate moment with the wall and had his pants rolled down for it. We really cannot understand the logic behind this and might never comprehend this picture.
19. Kesha Cosplay
Going to a cosplay party is definitely a very ravishing experience. You get to dress according to your preferences and can emulate any character that you want to. Moreover, you are surrounded by people in crazy outfits and you don't have to worry about being the only one with the crazy suit on. This guy here was going to one such cosplay and had a suit on that perhaps looked to emulate the female vocalist Kesha.
While cosplays are cool, we can all agree that they are not the best place for children to be at. Children really can get petrified with the presence of a person in a cosplay costume, which is visible here. This guy dressed as Kesha scared the shit out of the kid sitting behind him and we really do feel for the child.
20. Your Imaginary Girlfriend?
Everyone has lied about having a significant other at one point or another. Wait, just me? You all don't do that? When you have a significant other, it tells people that you're desirable. No wonder people will go to great lengths to lie about it, especially when it's so easy to fake with the internet. All you have to do is post a fake photo like this guy did and all of a sudden people will believe that you're a stud... NOT! Nobody is thinking that.
If you're going to lie about having a girlfriend then you better make sure that your lies are air tight. That means making sure that your imaginary girlfriend shouldn't be in the reflection. This is the type of thing that you'll never be able to live down. Always check your frame, people.
21. Future Selfie
You really see the most hilarious coincidences when you are roaming outside. This guy was going out with his friends when he saw that there was a person in the background that looked exactly like a future version of him. Well, yeah we do see a lot of funny things when we go outside, but this definitely tops the list in this regard.
This guy went out in a yellow colored shirt and didn't expect to see much. But, when he took a photo in the museum he had gone to, he noticed something peculiar about the man in the background. The person still posted the picture online and got called out by many of his friends for taking a picture with his future self. They really do look alike in their facial structures and built.
22. Behind You
Going outside and having a good time is not really safe for women nowadays. We go outside and try to have a good time, but are almost always faced by men who are not okay with us enjoying the time outside and start staring at us and wolf whistling at us. The most threatening out of all these individuals are the ones who silently stare without giving a hint.
This girl here had gone out for buying a brand new pair of shades and wanted to take a picture of her with this pair on. When she did take the photo, and posted it online and only then did she realize that there was someone who was staring at her backside from behind her. Too bad that we couldn't see the person's face as it would have been fun to see who it was.
23. Peek a Boo
With the massive increase in the number of cases of harassment and women being stalked, this really is a worry for women nowadays. Women want to stay safe from the menace of being stalked but there isn't enough that they can do about this. They are almost always under the pump when it comes to them taking pictures and they always need to be careful about who is near them.
This girl wanted to post a picture online and took one in a public restroom. She wanted to take the picture for her social media followers to see and comment on. However, what this girl didn't see was that someone was stalking her and was peeking at her from behind the curtains. This really wasn't cool and many people reminded the girl to remain safe and be on the lookout.
24. Not Sleeping
People have an obsession with making everyone think that they have a picture of them sleeping. I think it's because it makes them look loved. If someone is willing to take a picture of you while you sleep, they must really love you. The only time someone ever takes a sleeping picture of someone they hate is when they are going to murder them. I can see the appeal. Unfortunately, that desire creates a lot of really sad selfies.
Speaking of sad selfies... Look at this one. This is the definition of a sad selfie. Dude, you don't look that cute sleeping, so just stop anyway. Secondly, what were you thinking? I hope he played it off as a joke when his friends called him out on it. I wouldn't be able to stop clowning him.
25. Stop Monkeying Around and Take the Picture
Here's a fun fact about small monkeys. Despite their size, they are still strong enough to rip you limb from limb. Oh, did I say it was a fun fact? I must have meant "horrifying fact." Knowing that, I don't know how anyone trusts their lives around monkeys. I don't care if it's a trained monkey or a wild monkey. Both are expected to snap at any moment. The trained monkeys snap because they are sick of being trained. The wild monkeys snap because they are untrained. Oh, the irony.
This woman was expecting a simple selfie with a monkey, but she forgot about one thing: monkey business. If you're chilling with a monkey, there is bound to be monkey business. Hopefully she didn't get her face ripped off seconds later, though I'm sure she left with a couple less strands of hair at the very least.
26. Auto Focus
Auto focus can be a really mean thing. Just when you want to focus on something, it will lose focus and will start focusing on another thing. This is a phenomenon that anyone with a camera would relate to and would mention as the truth. However, you seriously need to have crappy luck to have auto focus choose a horse's arse over your face. This guy wanted auto focus to focus on his face, but that didn't happen.
While you should be careful with choosing the right background while taking a picture, it is also advised that you not trust auto focus when it comes to focusing on you. Auto focus can be really confusing, and it is hence recommended that you just change backgrounds to avoid the fate this guy brutally suffered from.
27. Party of Three
Couples really do like posting cute photos online for everyone to see and have a good look at. This couple wanted to do exactly this and they stood against each other for the guy to have a good little peck on the girl's cheeks. This was supposed to be a very pleasant photo for everyone on social media to comment and commend, but things went haywire due to one thing.
If you look closely at the gap between the necks of both these individuals you can clearly tell that there is a third person inside the picture. The person seems to be hiding behind the two protagonists here and is in no mood to make her position visible. But, eagle eyed viewers can see everything and they seriously wouldn't miss out on this person here.
28. Marilyn Monroe Doesn't Feel Your Pain
This one is a very special celebrity selfie fail. You may not be able to tell from the cropping of the photo, but that's Modern Family's Sofia Vergara. She's getting some kind of treatment on her rump, though I'm not sure what it could be. I could guess, but I know that I'd be wrong. I know that because I'd guess things like Bootylicious Treatment or Rump Roasting. Neither of those things exist.
Whatever is happening to her lower, rear extremity, Marilyn Monroe is conveniently placed in the background to look like she's laughing at the Hollywood star. It's as if Marilyn Monroe is saying, "I used to have to do that too. I know how it is, girl." Either that or she's feeling relieved that she didn't have to do those kinds of procedures back when she was a star.
29. Amanda Cerny
Amanda Cerny is one of the best Youtubers out there, and anyone who hasn't been living under the rock would relate to the fact that Amanda has a channel full of very interesting vines and videos. However, being a famous individual, and a hot one especially, doesn't come without its repercussions, which Amanda faced in the most hilarious manners.
Amanda usually takes a lot of selfies, and why wouldn't you when you're this hot? She was taking a selfie this one time as well and thought that she looked good in it. When she sent the picture to her friends for review, they were able to spot something really peculiar about the picture. In the background they could see someone looking at Amanda through the back glass and it was really mildly hilarious and mildly creepy.
30. Fire It Up
There's no time for a selfie like when a family is losing everything that they own in a blazing fire. While a lot of these selfies are people not realizing what's around them, leading to them being put in embarrassing positions, this is a different type of selfie. This is the type where the person didn't think that maybe the scenery behind them was inappropriate for a selfie. Like we'll see in some of these other selfies too, some places are not appropriate for selfie-taking. While fighting a fire might be one of those situations.
That guy must be new. I hope his captain saw this and made him clean the toilets for a week. Firehouse toilets have got to be bad. You have that many men using one restroom... that's going to lead to some really gross messes.
31. No Kisses for You, Little Homey
This selfie doesn't reveal something so much as it creates a funny looking image. This lonely boy (I call him that because he's the one who isn't getting any kisses) looks like a giant man getting kissed by a girl. Seriously, if this were real then this dude would have a head the size of a stack of al pastor meat. Too bad, little homey, but she's kissing someone else. Please don't use your giant head to crush the competition. It wouldn't be a fair fight.
I do have to wonder if the kid knew the picture would come out like this. He has that sly look on his face like he's getting away with something. For a young man with no romantic prospects, this is as close to intimacy as he's going to get.
There is something about women going to the restroom for photos that we men would never be able to understand. Women really like taking pictures in the rest room and they want to stay there for as long as they want. They take dozens of pictures in the area and don't stop until they have enough photos with them.
This person had gone to the restroom for taking some quick photos in her new dress and just as she took her phone out, a mom came running in while beating her son with a sandal. This really was a hilarious situation, as the person couldn't come to terms with how pressurizing it was to take pictures in such a commotion. She ended up taking a picture and posting it online with a caption regarding the mom beating her son.
33. Professional Photographers
There are some pictures you know could be so much better if only the person had paid more attention to the fact that they needed a better background. The prom night is a good event to go to for literally everyone and people want to party as hard as they can at the event. This guy was invited to a prom night and he wanted to take a killer picture before it happened.
When he asked his roommate for some help, he knew he'd be getting some from him because his roommate was a professional photographer. However, there was one thing that both of them didn't account for. The picture did come good, but the background mirror showed the person behind the lens standing with nothing but boxers on. This was just hilarious and the guy's friends had a good laugh at it.
34. Sharing Information
Public restrooms are always host to people sharing a lot of private information regarding them. From numbers to other stuff, people do get creative with what they share in public restrooms. There really isn't any limit to it, and anyone can come and share what they want about themselves. Thus, if you go and take a selfie in a public restroom, please be careful of all the explicit messages hovering around there.
This girl wanted to take a photo in a public restroom and wanted to be quick with it, so that no one could walk into her taking the photo. However, there was one thing that she had not accounted for; the message behind her head. Someone there had taken up the liberty to write 'I Masturbate', and we can't think of one good reason why they would write this there.
35. Headache Incoming
Here's the good news about this photo. She's a pretty girl and the ball most likely hit the back of her head. That means she won't lose her good looks to a broken nose or broken teeth. That's very important when you work in broadcast, which it looks like she might (unless you're a pro-wrestler or one of those guys from Jackass). The bad news is that the ball hit the back of her head, which could be dead. Life is a trade off like that.
You have to hope she's OK after this, but assuming she made a full recovery, this is a great photo to show people. They say that a good picture tells a story. This picture definitely tells a story. It's a brutal story, but a very interesting one to say the least.
36. Dumb Face
If you really want to see people doing dumb things and making dumb faces, you should go and see a woman taking selfies. Women really make the most hilarious faces while taking selfies and these faces really are hated by elderly people. Elderly people don't like women making such weird faces and would rather want to see the young ones doing something productive than standing and taking selfies all day long.
This girl was taking a selfie when her mom peeked inside from the door behind and saw her making the most darned face ever. Not only did she call her out for taking such weird pictures, but also spoiled the fun of the selfie that she was taking. This really did make for a hilarious picture for everyone to see online. The mom does look angry to be honest.
Mirrors are mankind's biggest enemies. They were made to assist us in looking better and making our bodies look perfect, but they haven't really fulfilled the purpose. Instead, mirrors make us look really funny and spoil the fun in whatever we are doing. Just recount all of the background fails above, and ponder over how many of these transpired because of the mirror playing a role in it. Yeah, you have your answer.
Lana here was taking a selfie near the mirror for a cute picture, when it became quite evident that she looked cute. She posted the picture online for everyone to see and like what she had posted, since she did look really pleasing. However, her friends found the reflection in the mirror really hilarious and couldn't stop laughing at how funny her name looked after being reflected by the mirror.
Anyone who is mildly interested in the Harry Potter series and has not been living under a rock for the last couple of decades would know who Voldemort is. The character is famous as one of the most notorious villains and has made quite a following for him. Ever since the Harry Potter series ended, reports mentioned that Voldemort has been roaming around many cities of the world and has moved to our world.
This notion was amplified by these girls, when they sat for a quick picture in the park. What looked like a really quite and calm picture was aggravated by the presence of Lord Voldemort in it and the people on their social media couldn't stop noticing him the dark wizard sitting in the background. Maybe Voldemort wants a dual with these two here.
39. Doggy Style
Regardless of what you think of them, dogs want some action as well. They don't want to be kept away from their kind and the male ones really want to be near their female counterparts, so that they can have some good fun together. This girl here had a male dog and was really happy with the presence he had in her life. However, a funny thing happened when she took a photo of him with a female dog of the same breed in the neighborhood.
When both the dogs met, they seemed to have formed quite a bonding, and it was visible that they were enjoying each other's presence. This girl here was just about to take a selfie of both of them, when things went haywire and the dogs had gone into action. We really love the expression on her face here.
40. For Security
We really see a lot of hiccups when it comes to taking pictures for an official. The official image is one picture that should be delivered with utmost importance and should be taken without any hiccups whatsoever. But, the important fact here is that there shouldn't be any untoward problems with the background.
This official from a security agency wanted to get his official picture taken in the most flawless manner. What he didn't expect was that one of the members of his staff was lurking around the background and could be seen standing behind him. We really hope that the person at the back knows the importance of an official image and buggers off. It was later found out that the person was standing there for security purposes and wanted to provide security to the official.
High school reunions are seriously the best type of reunions as you get to meet everyone from your life in High School and get to hang out with them. There is also the chance of you guys catching over memories and clearing the air that you had between each other. Amidst so much, there is also the need for taking photographs, because these photos will be shown everywhere under the banner of the reunion.
These three people from a high school reunion were taking a photo together, but failed to see that someone was taking a piss behind them. The person was clearly visible and there wasn't much that they could have done to change that. The picture became viral for all the wrong reasons and the reunion became a joke all across the internet.
Just like we mentioned above, taking pictures on the beach is often tough business. You come across a lot of people that are lurking around doing what they do, and you cannot do anything about that. This modeling agency had taken all of their models to the beach for a quick photo among the waves and everything was going well.
The photographers had instructed the models to sit according to their place in the picture and it was expected that everything would go smoothly. Just as everything was finalized and things were about to be shot, a man at the back of the beach decided to take a stroll in the waves. The whole picture was spoiled and that man won the deserved title of the showstopper for the day. Quite a title, when you have so many models around you.
43. Double Jesus
The title of this article states that these selfies reveal more than they should have. In this selfie it has been revealed that Jesus walks. Not only does Jesus walk, he is very vain these days. He put a picture of himself up in the restroom, after all. That's pretty vain for a lord and saviour, but who am I to judge? I've never been a lord and saviour. Just kidding, of course. This isn't the real Jesus at all, but he might as well play Jesus on TV because he has the look down.
That's a pretty good profile picture for a Christian Mingle account. I can't imagine any girl would see him as not their type on that dating site. Arguably he's exactly the guy those women are looking for. You can't really argue with that.
44. Girl, Where Do You Think You Are?
Talk about inappropriate selfies. I don't care who is in that casket. It could be her worst enemy and that's still not appropriate. Just don't go to the funeral if you have beef with the person. Here's another rule that could help avoid this kind of buffoonery: don't bring your cell phone to a funeral. What are you planning on doing, playing Candy Crush during the boring parts of the service? Leave it in the car. It'll help you avoid taking casket selfies.
If you're going to take a picture at a funeral, make sure you're not smiling. Especially if the casket is in view. No one wants to see the casket AND you. Proper etiquette is to just take a picture of just the casket. No need to inject yourself in there like you just got paid to do a casket promotional post.
45. True Selfie
Mirrors will forever be the greatest enemy to the selfie. Even when they don't show anything embarrassing, they're still a bad thing to include in a photo. They just make the viewer lose focus on what they should be looking at. Remember folks, take a second to stop looking at your face to make sure that there isn't something embarrassing in frame. I know you want to get your pouty lips just right, but no one will care about how you look when they see something stupid behind you.
In this case, this guy's mirror made him play himself. He wanted everyone to feel like he had someone who loved him and wanted to take pictures of him. That's not the case. All he has is a pair of feet that he can control very well.
46. Clean Your Room!
As children, we're all taught to clean our rooms. Well, actually, maybe it's not that we're taught, but that we're yelled at to do it. I wouldn't count that as teaching someone. That's called brute force, not teaching. Either way, it's a skill that we know is a good one to have, yet we often fail at keeping our room tidy. That's not such a big deal until you start taking selfies that show just how awfully dirty your room is.
No one wants to see your used paper plates and crumpled fast food wrappers in the background while you show off a booty picture. It really ruins the mood! That goes for any picture too. Imagine if the background they used for school pictures was a dirty room. Those would be the worst school pictures ever.
47. Prince Bomb
A celebrity photobomb is a photo to be cherished. It's a very rare, coveted type of photo, kind of like a photo with a dolphin. Not only is getting a photo with a celebrity cool enough on its own, when the celebrity photobombs you it creates a story that goes with the picture. In this case, these two guys got an extremely rare celebrity photobomb: a prince bomb.
That's Prince Harry in the background acting all goofy doing the double thums up. You'd think a prince would be more stuck up, but that's how princes from the old generations acted, not Harry. It is fun to see someone with such a high position and status act as if he's just a normal guy. It makes me think that me, a normal guy, could one day be a prince.
48. Selfie Magic
Some people really want to go overboard with the selfie experience. They are tired of taking selfies in the same old positions and want to add some thrill to this experience and want to experiment better positions and places to ensure that everyone likes what they are doing. Although, there is not a lot to gain from these positions, but one can always impress their social media followers.
This girl climbed at a very risky position to take a picture that she thought would propel her forward. She wanted everyone to see the thrilling experience she was having and how good her background is. The picture was one of those that gathered good reviews online and was much liked by people. The girl was however called out for risking her life to get a good background.
49. Thirst Trap
A thirst trap is a photo that you post on social media that is meant to look extra sexy for attention. This picture gives a whole new meaning to the term thirst trap. I say that because there's obviously a very thirsty boy in the photo already. He's sucking on the sink like he hasn't drank water in weeks. If that's her son I think she should focus less on pictures and focus more on taking care of her son. Get the kid a glass of water.
This is yet another reason not to take selfies in the restroom. You're going to get weird stuff in your picture. Even if that kid wasn't there, I still don't want to see your crusty toothbrush while I'm looking at your sexy pic. People need to go back to getting professional photos doesn. Especially those photos in sepia tone that Latina girls would always get. Those were great.
You have to be ready for any kind of mishap while you are taking pictures on the train. You can see literally anything on train, which is why it is advised you look here and there before taking the right picture. These two friends were taking this picture together and noticed that something ridiculous was happening behind them.
When they posted the picture online, all of their friends were also quick to notice the background and reminded them that there was a woman at the back going down on another man. The picture of the background really wasn't cute and something sexually explicit was happening. However, we believe that both the individuals were just having a quick rest in different positions and their poses just got blown out of proportion by the people we have on social media.
