Selfie? Who Knew?

Selfie? Who knew?

So the Oxford Dictionary people have chosen "selfie" as word of the year. I don't understand the 'word of the year concept' nor why anyone would want to enshrine flash-in-the-pan jargon in the hallowed Oxford Dictionary but that is a different topic.

I freely admit I do not follow the whims of modern culture. I am completely disinterested. I don't care. Nor am I prone to taking pictures of myself. That concept seems like narcissism in the extreme.

But let's be honest here. 'Selfie' is not a word one would immediately associate with a picture. All this time I thought these people were talking about masturbation.
