Selfies at Funerals is the latest hilarious tumblr that will lower your faith in humanity just a little bit. It’s exactly what it sounds like: pictures of selfies taken at funerals. The real kicker is that funeral selfies don’t have to be terrible, they just are. They could be people capturing their most vulnerable moments, but instead almost every one of them makes you think, “you know you’re at a funeral, right?”
For instance, take this funeral selfie:
I’m no hashtagologist, but no funeral picture, selfie or otherwise, should lead with the hashtags #boyfriend #gorgeous. Maybe you didn’t know your #granddad that well, but give the guy a little more respect than your hashtags, your boyfriend’s frowny face and your squinty face implies.
Here’s another funeral selfie:
People, if you are sad, you don’t need to put on a frowny face. Your face is not an emoticon, it’s an actual face. It communicates emotions all on its own (#evolution). I feel like an old man, but I’m right, damnit.
The frowny face funeral selfie is bad, but it gets trumped (in awfulness) by the kissy face funeral selfie. I’m no selfieologist, but you don’t need to make a kissy face in every selfie you take, especially if you’re at a funeral. Maybe try the frowny face?
You seem real broken up about Aunt Judy. Also, your phone is almost out of power, might be a good time to put it down.
Finally, the winner. A funeral selfie with the deceased in the background. I’m honestly not sure if that face says “I can’t believe grandma died,” or “I take selfies everywhere I go.”
