One of our favorite humor writers on the www is Lori Wescott. She shares her awkward moments and irreverent stories at Lori-Palooza and is a co-author of the best selling You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth. Today, Lori is sharing her new coalition MASF (moms against sexy faces) with us.
In response to the overwhelming amount of sexy, or duck-face pictures being posted on Facebook and Twitter lately I’ve decided to combat this problem head on.
The coalition known as, “Moms Against Sexy Faces” (MASF) has just been born with the sole purpose of discouraging such photographic faux pas. MASF wants all ladies of social media to think before posting a sexy face picture. Don’t take this the wrong way, but the photo doesn’t look as good as you think (even when airbrushed).
There will come a point when a sexy facer you know needs a job or wants to run for PTA, and with one quick Google search there it’ll be- the black and white photo they considered artsy at the time despite their obviously drunk eyes and barely there bikini top. Rest assured that this sexy facer will be passed up for another candidate who favors one-piece bathing suits, mom jeans, and sweater sets.
The sexy face photo DOESN’T make you seem young, and for that matter neither does a toe ring, but that deserves a separate coalition all together. MASF can only do so much.
MASF would like to now offer some alternatives to the sexy face photo:
• The toothy grin photo (a true classic)
• The family photoThe sitting on a donkey at the Grand Canyon photo
• The standing next to a national monument photo
• The Gatlinburg gift shop photo (a personal favorite)
• The “What I cooked for dinner tonight” photo
• The me and my pet photo
Still not sure what constitutes an overly provocative photo? Here are some examples.The following is one wholesome, suitable photo followed by an inappropriate photo- the kind that should never see the light of day.
Please join MASF and myself in the fight against unnecessarily sultry photos.
