OK - I can see why Ellen did it for the Oscars. People wanted to share this photo on Twitter because it was, after all, the Academy Awards and it was entertaining for those of us (goofs) who stayed up for the show. Something to do while we waited for the good parts.
|Good example of a "Selfie"|
But this "selfie" business is getting out of hand. Waaaaaaay too many! Apparently, all these photos people are taking of themselves (for no apparent reason) is becoming a problem.

According to psychiatrist Dr David Veal: "Two out of three of all the patients who come to see me with Body Dysmorphic Disorder since the rise of camera phones have a compulsion to repeatedly take selfies.
"Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to help a patient to recognise the reasons for his or her compulsive behaviour and then to learn how to moderate it," he told the Sunday Mirror.
I haven't looked up "Body Dysmorphic Disorder" yet but it can't be good can it?
Anyway, I don't see what the big deal is. People have been doing this for yonks, even without smartphones.

I would love to see your selfies if you're standing beside the Queen, the Pope, an alien or anyone of similar interest. Also, count me in on your mailing list if your face shows up during an event similar to VE-Day, an Aznavour concert, anything Paris related or the Apocalypse. Any photo that includes only you with your arm stuck out just enough to crop the shot to your face at MacDonalds......no.
I bet you're wondering why I was reading the International Business Times. Ha! Me too.
