The pace of meme culture is so hectic of late that Selfies At Funerals is already old news, and teens everywhere are trying to get out ahead of the curve for the next trend by seeking out spots for selfies just before a funeral is even planned. The latest example of this came on the cover of the New York Post, the city’s chief depository of cover photos of clueless young people, who published a picture of a woman gazing happily into her own visage with a suicidal bridge jumper in the frame behind her.
In her defense… maybe she, uh, didn’t notice the guy? Doubtful, says the Post.
With scores of onlookers watching the dramatic 10 a.m. rescue by cops, the crass camerawoman turned her back to the scene, angled her phone toward the bridge, and snapped a shot.
The scarf-clad blonde even cracked a thin smile.
When approached by The Post afterward, she suddenly became camera-shy.
“I’d rather not,” she said when asked for her name. She then hustled out of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Well, in a city of so many million people, you kind of have to assume that in any given selfie there’s something horrible going on in the background. I bet if you go back and scroll through the thousands you’ve taken over the years, you’re bound to uncover some sort of mystery or other. One you might start with is why you took all those selfies in the first place.
