Picture This: My Selfish Take On “Selfie”

Alas, “selfie” is Oxford Dictionaries’ international Word of the Year for 2013, beating out shortlisters “bedroom tax,” “binge-watch,” “bitcoin,” “olinguito,” “schmeat,” “showrooming,” and “twerk.”

Picture This: My Selfish Take On “Selfie” (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Oxford’s Word of the Year is a crime!
Choosing “selfie” just won’t ring my chime.
Why not finalist “schmeat,”
The lab-raised fake meat?
For one thing, “schmeat’s” simpler to rhyme.

    We think “selfie” is putrid/noxious…just another narcissistic~~even greedy~~thought or action from It’s All About Me A$$holes. Won’t use it…will quote your peachy limerick instead. Hey, you~~take a picture of your check to help a soldier w/her-his PTSD…or to work for preserving your environment…or something outside of your white picket fence where you waste your valuable time posting silly fotos of yourself. That no one cares about. Except yourself[ie].
