    Wife comes in from shopping and says I've got you a Selfie Stick. I immediately go to my Cajun Dialect that I know annoys her and say Wha Dat? She says you have an IPHONE and can attach it on and take a picture. I say 10$ fu a stick, I can go to the pasture and get a stick fo free. She's very annoyed by now , hands on hip She says YOU DONT WANT IT? I extend it and tell her , might make a good back scratcher. She storms out the room. I really look at it then and say to myself Hot Damn Just What I wanted..

    Ah, yes. The selfie stick. If you can prove to the government that you actually use it you might qualify for disability or some other form of government compensation since approximately 83% of selfie stick owners suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD).

    If you're farsighted & your arms aren't long enough, it could help you read the newspaper.

    It will also be of benefit when window peeping. Remember not to use the flash though.

    Had to look that one up. Sort of like an inspection mirror. Or what Tom Hanks used in Saving Private Ryan.

    Anyone know the London Eye, the tourist ferris wheel on the Thames near Parliament in London? The security staff on that have what are essentially selfie sticks with mirrors on the end they run under the ferris wheel cars as each passes to unload passengers to make sure there are no bombs afixed. A good idea but not too reassuring.

    The selfie stick....it still has me laughing. Why....why not just ask someone to take your picture? I seriously believe that next picture I'll ask my four year old niece to take it. Guess it's just one more way to cut out contact with other people. Missing the days when you asked a stranger to take your picture and hearing it wind up for the next one. Suppose that's unheard of now. If you see someone with a selfie stick...please ask if they know what an encyclopedia is. I've asked two and they looked at me funny and said no....don't ask your wife though. I would imagine she knows and no need to stoke the fire

    Ask someone to take your picture and you'll soon be short one camera or smart phone in some parts of the world.

    ...including parts of the world that aren't that far from wherever you live.

    The cartoon is right on, but the other end should be used; otherwise a perfectly good phone has gone dark. Very dark!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    It is true that people will run with your phone. Though, I like to chance it that way rather than them grabbing a stick with it from my hand as I look to the sky making a silly face.

    hahah, I was going to say that. Actually, ask someone to take your picture and they will look at you like "are you serious? don't you have a front cam on your phone?"

    I don't have a front camera on my phone Don't carry my tablet or PS Vita around either. Also, I have had someone to take a picture for me with no issues. Actually, the other day we had a waitress where we had my nieces birthday take a picture of the family together as well. You would be surprised if you pick the right person out of the crowd how easy it is. I think actually....I might buy a selfie stick. Going to put a disposable camera on it and make people laugh.

    I also ask people to take a picture of us when I am with family. I take pictures of people with great pleasure whenever they ask me. I don't mind doing that. But nowadays people are looking for "one more way to cut out contact with other people" as you stated above.

    I often volunteer to take a group photo, usually met with some appreciation. I don't have a selfie stick, but sometimes don't ask folks to take a photo of my family as they don't know how to take a good picture.
