National Selfie Day or That Time REO Ruined Things For Everyone

Today is National Selfie Day. Here at REO, we pride ourselves on always being at the forefront of cultural trends. So, we figured we needed to take part in this awesome day that celebrates our society’s obsession with self…we mean, selfies! Unfortunately, we have not developed our selfie-taking skills since we are not female and/or in our teens or early 20s. Additionally, we are ashamed to admit it, but most of us don’t even own a selfie stick. The horror!

We did our best with the gifts we have been given. Our best is not very good, though. In fact, our best is very bad. Still, we can now say we participated in National Selfie Day. Based on our results, we hope our submission will be the catalyst to end this day forever. So, you’re welcome.


Nathan Patton chose to commemorate National Selfie Day by frightening all the children of the world.

The stuff of nightmares.

Ben Plunkett decided to celebrate National Selfie Day with a reflection into his very soul!

Yep. That’s his soul all right.

D.A. Speer elected to go with mockery. Ironic mockery.

National Selfie Day - D.A. Speer
“I make this look good.”

Phill Lytle, being a giant nerd, did his best “Eye of Sauron” impression.

“A great eye, lidless, wreathed in flame.”

David Lytle decided to include his daughter in the fun. She does not seem impressed.

Is that what they call the “stink eye”?

Conclussion

As we stated earlier, this is the best we could do. We realize most of these selfies are awful, yet we are but humble men of humble means and we beg your forgiveness for our foibles.

We welcome your selfies on our social media platforms.

Nathan lives in the foothills of the Ozarks in Southeastern Missouri with his wife and five children. They used to live in New York City; and, while they sometimes miss it, especially the food and public transportation, they do enjoy being closer to nature and Cardinals baseball.

Current history teacher, former missionary and youth pastor, grieving widower, father of the three cutest faces in creation, and giddy husband of a radiant bride. I also sang "I'm too sexy" for karaoke once. There was a crowd. My only comfort is that phones didn't make videos back then.

D.A. Speer

Daniel was raised in the woods of Dickson, TN by a group of elves. He ate lots of turnips and grew up quickly, learned kung fu and mercilessly fought his way through the ranks to become Dickson County's own king of the gnomes. Soon, he grew bored and bid them a tear-filled farewell, then sailed away to Bible college where he met the girl who would become his wife. They got married, had kids, then his family ended up being international missionaries just outside of Tokyo, Japan. He kind of sort of likes gaming, graphic novels, and good podcasts.

Greetings from the booming metropolis that is Pleasant View, Tennessee. I am a man of constant spiritual highs and spiritual lows. I pray that I serve God at my highest even when I am lowest.
