Stop Already...


Here is a recent pet peeve: The stupid hotness of pursing one's lips together to take a picture. Where did this orginate? I know that the vast majority of high school kids on myspace do this, and I know that New Jersey guido's do this, but why? When was the memo passed around in which making your face looks like a cow's ass became mandatory? Moreover, what is this supposed to represent?

There are several variations on this picture, the most common of which is the practice of holding your camera above your head and looking up into it while making the ass-face. Inexplicably, this picture is most commonly taken in front of the bathroom mirror. Again, I am not sure what the goal is, but there it is. Evidently, it has now become somewhat popular to integrate lollipops into the ass-face picture.

I know, I am getting old and crotchety, and this just seems like I am shaking my fist at pesky kids, but I just don't get it. Whatever.

It is pretty gay, in both pejorative and literal senses. At least, when guys do it.

You forgot to add the obligatory stupid gigantic bug-eyed shades for girls. Started by Paris Hilton and the other celebrity bimbos.

Maybe their faces are stuck like that. I guess someone should have listened to their mother when she warned them about making faces...
