The #Snelfie Is Instagram's Newest (& Silliest) Trend


So, this is weird. Just when the world thought thought it was safe to go back on Instagram, there's a new photo trend. No, not the #belfie. And, not the #shelfie. This is the #snelfie — a sneezing selfie. It certainly strikes the regular ol' picture-taker as nontraditional, but it does take an inordinate amount of skill to perfect. Think about it: These people are capturing the split-second action of a sneeze! The Instagrammer must become one with the shutter.
New York also points out that, while bizarre, the #snelfie is a welcome respite from the more vain snaps often found on your Insta-feed. After all, no one looks pretty in the middle of a sneeze. So, if you're an allergy sufferer, it just might be time to cash in. On Likes, that is. (New York Magazine)
