A lot of people make fun of the duck face and ponder its existence. Why do people think it's sexy? I've done it in photos to be funny, but I'm embarrassed that I've ever done it at all! But guess what? I still laugh my head off when I see other people do it.
Probably because I'm secretly judging them -- ignoring the fact that I've made many a stupid pose choice and patting myself on the back for being so much better than them. Oh, come on! I know I'm not the only one. To this day, I'm guilty of the hand-on-hip pose and the American Girl Pose.
Also, I'm all about world peace and the peace sign. However, I am not a fan of the "sexy peace sign" pose a la Lindsay Lohan. Gag. Or the "duck face + peace sign."

Chelsea @ Taste and See
(Not the duck face, but it was her "signature pose" that she can't explain now.
I think she looks so cute!)
Shannon @ And Then She Lost It
(She also can't explain her go-to "fish/kissy face"!)
To be fair, I think Jenn's peace sign is totally appropriate while running a 5K,
and she's pretty, so I'll keep the photo there. :)

Morals of the story:
1.) No matter how attractive you are, the duck face never looks good.
2.) The duck face is universally lame. (Those photos hail from the U.S., Australia, and the U.K.)
3.) The "duck face + peace sign" is super lame.
Getting these photos by tweet, text, and Facebook photo tag had me laughing all afternoon yesterday. Thanks, guys!
Next time, I'm going to tell everyone that throwing $100 bills at me makes me laugh.
