People used to blame everything on global warming.  Then we switched to blaming everything on the economy.  Then it was Facebook's turn.  And now it's our PHONES.  Here's the latest . . .

 

Apparently, there's been an increase recently in HEAD LICE among teenagers.  And a lice expert named Marcy McQuillan in Scotts Valley, California says it's because of . . . SELFIES.

 

Quote, "Typically it's younger children I treat, because they're at a higher risk for head-to-head contact.  But now, teens are sticking their heads together every day to take cell phone pics."

 

So . . . tell your kid not to rub heads with other kids, even for photos?  Even better, lecture them on how the PURE definition of a "selfie" is just ONE person . . . so by rubbing heads with their friends they're bastardizing the genre.
