Note to Self: No Selfies at Funerals!

What will Nelson Mandela’s funeral be remembered for? Not the outpouring of genuine love for the man nor the four-plus hours of tributes and dedications. Nope. It will be remembered for the infamous selfie Obama and Prime Ministers David Cameron and Helle Thorning-Schmidt took on Helle’s smart phone. We here at Roadkill have a selfie, schmelfie attitude (although wouldn’t it have been great if Raul Castro photobombed the picture!). But the rest of the world seems to be shuttering over the shutterbugging. To them we say: Smile and show your good side. We’re pretty sure Nelson, the winner of a Nobel Peace Prize, wouldn’t appreciate the bickering.
