This is an example of a word balloon overlay that could've worked as a montage across the whole page. I should've moved the last bubble down to interact with both tiers.
Greg is taking... a SELFIE?? I don't think they were widely called that in 2009. You still had to flip your phone around and line the lens up to your face. And then you had to post it to Facebook, unfortunately.
One thought on “#329 – pain is all around”
Flickr users were calling them that disparagingly in 2009. I think you're right that it wasn't called that /everywhere/ till 2011ish though.
And of course it's the douchebag goggles causing their host to take a selfie here – that's how they reproduce.
