This Was How Our Forefathers Took Selfie - This Is How We Now Take Selfies



When there were no Slay Mamas, our forefathers took selfies in peace

Of course, with the way slay mamas and dapper dudes have been religiously crazy to the selfie trend, you must have been thinking this disease of a thing (selfie) started in our generation.



I bet you never knew this;

Selfies date back to the 1920 - it was actually our ancestors who started the trend that we're now addicted to.

Due to the gigantic nature of their camera, two of the five had to hold the camera.  (hehe). So if you're complaining that taking selfies with one hand is painful, try to imagine how much pain our forefathers felt when using both hands.

These photos prove that even before you were born, selfies existed.


And don't forget, they never had selfie sticks!!!!






That was in the 20's. Welcome to the 21st Century...

There's no day I go out with the ladies and they don't persuade me into taking selfies.

When it's picture time.....

Here's our kind of selfie

  8. I must say, I initially wanted to keep my cool here; but oh noooooo that last hilarious picture got me laughing all the way. That girl can selfie for the World!

    Just tell me this is a joke. Why do these old men actually have to take selfies? And with television size screens for that matter? They should better go buy big size projector then.

    What if I tell you av never taken a selfie in my life before? *LOL* :D
