The ‘Selfies at Funerals’ Tumblr Page Has Arrived and Teens Are Going Nuts

October 29, 2013

We first brought you ‘Instagram Funeral Attire‘ a few months ago. Now someone else has taken it a step further with ‘Selfies At A Funeral’ and its epic.

If you don’t know what a ‘selfie‘ is: A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook or any other sort of social networking website.

We’ve seen selfies taken at the Anne Frank Memorial, and selfies at Chernobyl.

Now, the creator of “Selfies at Serious Places” brings you ‘Selfies at Funerals’; the newest volume in an ever-expanding collection of people who shamelessly pout their lips in the name of Instagram validation.

Not surprisingly, the selfies seem to all be taken by teenagers, many of whom note their good hair day within the caption, using tags like ‘#gorgeous’ and ‘#hipster’ to optimize their presence on the photo-sharing platform.

Perhaps this explains why the narcissistic impulse to take and post a gratuitous photo could not be resisted; a true sign of the times.

Following are a few of our, erm, favorites … but you can see the entire collection here.
