I recall my graduation from grad school: There was a lot of purple. My GF said with dismay that she looked like an eggplant.
A friend wanted to take a photo with me and three other guys. They took it, and then said I had fucked it up.
"Why?" I asked.
"You didn't make a gangsta pose," was the reply.
Flipping through the net, it became clear that the lack of a pose, or "unpose" (coined right this second by me) is in fact cooler than the gangsta pose.
After all, if these guys and these guys are doing it, it must suck. (Warning: Pics might be NSFW).
P.S. Posing or not, the guys in the photo above still rule. Hi guys :)
