Sure, you’ve done it, but have you done it like this? Sure, you’ve seen selfie fails before, but have you seen these? Ask yourself these questions as you click through the following slideshow. And remember, fail again, and fail better.
1. The Foot/Food Fail

Whatever this guy was going for, it didn’t work. Let’s not mix feet and food, guys. Let’s stick with hands and even utensils.
2. Nostril Fail

Thanks, Stacie. We actually were NOT wondering what the inside of your nostrils looked like. But we’ll let you know.
3. The Dog Stays Silent

The dog’s expression in this photo says it all. You know when you’re no longer amused, no longer concerned, no longer angry, just done?
4. Sideline Fail

Bad time for a selfie. Given that the Sooners were on their way to losing this game, and the QB (pictured here) would cry in the press conference, this is a bad time for a selfie.
5. Shirtless With Cat

Here’s our friend from Manitoba again. When you call yourself the Selfie King, you need to bring it. Your shots can’t even keep the cat awake? Selfie duke, maybe.
6. Running Fail

So this counts. It’s important to own your selfie fail. Get up tomorrow, get back out there on the trail and fail better.
7. Freaked-out Dog

Dogs are an integral part of the #selfiefail. Often they silently bear witness to their masters’ failure, but sometimes, they are the failure themselves. Thanks to them for helping us out.
8. NSF…Oh, it’s a Dog

If your first reaction was to block the screen and look around to see if anyone saw you, take heart. It’s just a dog again. And, as much as we love dogs, they know not what they do.
9. Bruno Mars…ish

Your mirrored sunglasses? Tough. Your upper lip fuzz? Tough. You, holding your phone up and taking a photo of yourself to send to friends, all while forgetting that your mirrored sunglasses will reflect hands, wrists and phone? Not….so…tough…?
10. Drag Me to Heck

You and me and baby makes….a horrific scene from an Italian giallo movie? It would appear so. It only takes two pudgy, disembodied arms to make a family selfie turn frightening.
11. I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle

Too little has been said about the cyborg #selfiefail. Is this woman sitting in weird lighting, or was she sent here from the future to kill your mother so you’d never be born? We’re just asking.
12. The Mom Selfie Fail

When you take a picture of yourself in your beautiful surroundings but fail to include yourself. We would call this the definitive #selfiefail. Or, as our mom would put it, “I did a selfie!”
13. The Horses are Watching

Every list of fails should include horses. Not because they fail more than people. Simply because horses are better than people. Faster. More graceful. Taller. They talk a lot less. Here a horse shows pity on his hapless person.
14. Filter Fail

What’s happening here? Do we have a filter happening? Was there a face swap that went wrong…or right? Since we can’t tell what happened, we’re calling it a #fail.
15. Small Head Fail

Again with the filters. Buddy, if you’re gonna mess around with selfies and filters and then bring a dog into the mix, at least put a shirt on. Your head is weird enough!
16. Multiple Universe Fail

We get it, you exercise. We get it, you’re outdoorsy. We get it, you have two faces. Stop the bragging!
17. Pass the Blame Fail
Source: Butt it wasn‘t my fault. Digital Image. Instagram @g.i.s.p. December 8, 2017.
We include this one for various reasons, but mostly for the description. Of all the reasons to call this a #selfiefail, he blames the “doggie butt”?! Buddy.
18. Purple Fail
Source: Purple On Point. Digital Image. Instagram @amandajorfield. November 24, 2017.
The makeup is going. The duckface is going. The purple is going. Wait, the purple is going? A lot of purple.
19. Caturday Fail

It’s time we brought cats back into the mix. Why is it the cats are either shocked or sleeping in selfies? There’s no in between.
20. Breakin’ the Law

Whoa, such a rule breaker, pal. Who’s gonna tell you no selfies? Nobody! That’s who. Today, it’s the no selfies please sign, tomorrow….the world?
21. The Red Selfie

#selfiefails are embarrassing, sure, but not this embarrassing. Dude, you’re still young, you have many more selfie fails in your future. Anyone who sits in the sun that long without sunscreen has to.
