When you’re a kid, keeping your huge ego in check largely falls on the backs of your parents. Poor parents, for do they know they’re playing with fire? All their kind reminders to point out your flaws to keep you humble. And now they have a new, terrifying weapon in their arsenal – selfies.
Yes. Those banes of human existence, that cross we all have to bear, selfies are the weapon in question. Already a risky thing to put on the Internet, selfies are now a legitimate target for a parent’s agenda of embarrassment. Nothing gets your narcissism in check like seeing the people who gave you your looks making fun of what you’re serving on the web. This is, basically, the Internet equivalent of a nuclear bomb.
Forgive them, Father, for they do not know what they do.
Boys and girls alike are finding themselves targeted by mom and dad’s savage selfie imitations, as Ranker‘s photos prove. The parents below mocked their kids’ selfies in hilarious ways, proving that one should always be careful when posting something online.
Or you could just ban your parents. Just saying. Ahem.
