Today has been stressful. Beyond stressful. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I am getting ready to go out of the country for three weeks. I almost can’t believe it. Mr. T has to go to London for some research stuff so I decided to go with him. I’m embarrassed to say that, aside from Canada, I’ve never really been out of the country before. So there are a lot of unknowns rolling around in my head. I am sure most of them are just nonsense that everyone feels before they leave their home country (I am right in thinking this, right?).
Anyhow, I decided to take a break from the madness and I was on Facebook when I stumbled something that completely brightened my day. This article from the Frisky about a website called Guys with Fries (warning, this link is not exactly safe for work). Seriously, it’s genius and I don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself.
What is Guys with Fries? Well, it’s a Tumblr devoted entirely to guys who take selfies in the mirror. The camera has been Photoshopped out of the picture and replaced with a container of fries.
A few years ago I wrote an article about guys on dating sites and how I hated seeing this kind of picture on profile after profile. The best ones were always the guys with no shirt on, in their bathroom, with their dirty shower and towels behind them. It’s a fad that I never really understood. How did it get started? When did it become acceptable? (It’s actually not acceptable in case you were wondering).
So, instead of just calling the guys out, someone out there decided to just Photoshop funny things in there. Well done. Well done.
Like I said, the Tumblr isn’t exactly safe for work so you might want to look at it at home. But seriously, check it out.
