“A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person’s arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves. A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera.”
According to the same site, it is also a “ridiculous practice of narcissism.”
Narcissism? Maybe. Ridiculous? Definitely! And not exactly in a bad way. Sure, the typical selfies we find on Facebook may just be plain dull or icky, but there are some exceptional human beings out there who have mastered the amazingly hilarious art of selfies. Some people take their selfies seriously. And a lot of them have taken their selfie-taking skills to a whole new level. This usually leads to hilarious results, most of which have provided the internet with many laughs and giggles. Here are some hilarious selfies that will make your day. The last one is especially crazy!

Reported Kelly Nash from Fox News Florida was almost hit by a photobombing baseball while covering a sports event in Tampa. Good thing the ball missed her. Nash said about the scary selfie:
“I was taking a picture of myself in the seats above the Green Monster during Red Sox batting practice.
Producer Art Dryce had called out “heads up!” a few times while I was taking pictures around the left field section, but none of those balls actually fell close to me, so I took my chances turning my back on batting practice for a picture.”
