Do You Like Selfies?

One of the comics blog that I can’t stop reading is The Oatmeal. I love this website not just because of the extremely funny comics, but also because I think the author is super awesome. His is about the only blog that I came across that does not have Comments section and is still hugely popular. If you aim to be a full time professional blogger, then it would be wise to want to emulate him.

In fact, I wrote about one of his comics before, his dedication to his Intergalactic SpaceBoat of Light and Wonder.

I love his comics to bits, but I think he sometimes isn’t very accurate. For example, this. It is one of hisΒ newer comics:

No one likes selfies, yeah?

Everyone loves selfies, dude. Provided the selfier is pretty/handsome or famous.

Actually, he’s not even accurate when drawing himself. I mean, this is what he draws himself as:

Do you want to know how he looks like in real life? His blog is The Oatmeal, his name is Matthew Inman.Β If you search him up in Wikipedia, you will get to see the real Matt.

See how big the difference is? Do you think he will get a lot of Likes if he takes a real selfie of himself? I think he will.

So Matt, relax, people do like selfies, if the selfies are from you. Just make sure you draw yourself more accurately! πŸ˜‰

I bought a camera, and I’m busy studying the Instructions Manual today. That’s why I have to do another random quickfire post.Β

  1. I love The Oatmeal!!! And I always thought the author was a fat, ugly, geeky guy, until a few months ago I saw a video of Matthew Inman speaking in a convention… he is SO hot I am kind of disappointed, haha.

    • I have the same feeling, when I saw his real face I was like: “What the?? Why the hell did he draw himself as a fatty?!” πŸ˜€

  2. Nope…hate selfies. In fact, I don’t like to take photos…that’s why you don’t see any in my blog…hee..hee! Sometimes when you sit down to a dinner, that’d be someone in the group taking selfies…irritates the hell out of me!

    Hey, I’ll have to check out his blog coz he’s easy on the eyes (like Boey)…so you know my criteria for authors, right…kekeke!!

  3. If I have someone always be with me and know how to take good pictures of me, then I won’t do selfies as much as now. I always blame my hubby for failing to take a good picture of me. Is it his problem or my problem?

    • It’s not a problem anymore since you are taking selfies! πŸ˜€
      Can’t blame him la, some people are just not talented enough with a camera (me included)..

  4. Nope, I don’t like selfies. I bought a smart phone recently (finally!!) and out of curiosity tried the selfie function. Gawd! I look like a dorky auntie πŸ™ So what you say is right. Only gorgeous people like selfies. And thanks for introducing The Oatmeal! Love it! Another comic blog to add to my fav Iamboey πŸ™‚

    • You need to practice with it more, then you will be able to capture angles that make you look hot! πŸ˜€

    • I think selfies are only trendy among the younger generations?Or probably more attractive looking people LOL! I love selfies, as long as I am the one looking at the pictures πŸ˜€

  5. Sounds like you plan to selfie a lot with the camera but that doesn’t look like you.. Hmm… Errr I like to wefie and selfie and then look at them myself in the gallery, but not post it in fb la.. Syiok and tengok sendiri sudah lor.. Those with lots of ### irritates me, like taking selfie in a dark corner, lying down in bed, looking gloomy with #missingyou#feelingemo#cantlivewithoutyou#lifeismeaningless.. Eeeewwww, puh-leese…

    • Especially those cutie girls with no boyfriend going #missyou #kissme those right? I usually ignore the # and focus on the picture πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  6. I certainly do not like selfie.. those who like selfie are really gorgeous people.. or shall I rephrase it as, those who like selfie are “those who think they are” really gorgeous people.. :p

    new camera?? wow, what model?? show show show.. show yourself selfie with your new camera xD

  7. aha! u bought a camera to take selfie??
    can’t wait to see it…i mean both the camera and selfie, hahaha!
    btw, Matt is really gorgeous!

  8. I am more interested in your camera than Matt, the professional blogger. So what camera did you get? Did you manage to sell your previous one that you bought in USA?

    • Tsk! Why you so like that one?! You can see the picture of the box in my personal FB or Instagram (link at sidebar). I’m going to blog about it soon. Yeah I sold the fake DSLR last week! πŸ˜€
