    Varnes…. apparently “selfie sticks” are the new schtick.


    This year’s version of those tired jokes that ended with “There’s an app for that.”


    Oh… and if you don’t know what selfie sticks are…
    they’re little telescoping sticks that attach to a smartphone,
    I was gonna say “like a tripod,” but I guess they’d be unipods…

    and hold it far enough away for idiots to keep taking endless pictures of themselves.

    I just use other pictures and photoshop myself in. I can see slideshow vacation pictures of the future. Only selfies and no idea where it was taken.

    I visited the Grand Canyon two months ago and there were lots of tourists with their backs to the Canyon taking selfies!

    If Lady Liberty looses her torch, we’ll all get the short end of that schtick.

    Aren’t you suppose to at least have a caret to go that bad schtick ?

    And they’ll have a nice memento from their visit that they can share with family and friends (“wish you were here”?) and remind them of how the canyon looked when they were facing it and looking into it. The intimation that a selfie – or any other photograph – taken with their back to the canyon means they didn’t bother to see it, is rather absurd. (That may not have been what you had in mind, but I find most objections to “selfies” more annoying than the selfies.)

    Hmmm…deflect the blame for the bad joke to the comedian, good strategy!

    Thanks, Susan. After I posed I had a hunch that’s what it was about. Did you just coin the word unipod? You’re brilliant!
