In the recent years, selfies have become a phenomenon, from regular people dedicating entire social media profiles to them, to professionals giving advice on professional looking selfies (such as LinkedIn selfies), to celebrities even publishing books about them (we're looking at you Kim Kardashian). The word has become so popular that in 2013, it was added to the Oxford Dictionary (alongside other great words like twerk and binge-watch). The rumor is that the word started in Australian message boards, sometime in the year 2002, with the first document of its use being:

“Um, drunk at a mates 21st, I tripped ofer [sic] and landed lip first (with front teeth coming a very close second) on a set of steps. I had a hole about 1cm long right through my bottom lip. And sorry about the focus, it was a selfie.”

Since then, the word has gained tremendous popularity across the English speaking world, becoming an easily recognizable word. Language research conducted by Oxford Dictionaries editors reveals that the frequency of the word selfie in the English language has increased by 17,000% from the year 2012 to 2013, leading it to claiming the title of the Word of the Year. Unfortunately not all selfies are worth taking or seeing. Some are so bad, we've made a list of the worst 15 selfies - follow it as a what-not-to-do for your next selfie.

The winner of our worst selfie competition is certainly not someone you'd associate with excessive selfie taking, but maybe true talent takes time. In it, comedian Ricky Gervais is doing his best to grab his chest, all while displaying his vampire teeth and cross eyed nature. What makes this selfie so good (or bad?) is how funny and endearing Ricky looks. Really, it's nice to see a celebrity taking themselves so lightly - no wonder he'd be number one on our list!
