Stop Making That Duckface!

Daily Dose

It’s no secret I love wearing full body lycra fetish suits, but that’s not germane to this column. It’s also no secret I love single topic websites, such as Hats of Meat and People of Wal-Mart.

Today we add Stop Making That Duckface! to the Daily Dose Single Topic Registry. It’s a very prestigious and solemn honor, for when most of humanity is wiped out by John Cusak’s “2012” and we survivors rebuild society from the ground up, we will need this registry to repopulate our internet with stupid crap.

Stop Making That Duckface! made the rather trenchant observation that a shocking percentage of people make the same pouty face in front of the camera. It’s similar to the collagen injected lips of trout pout (no relation to lawrence.comrade TroutPoutt), and it transcends gender, race, and social status. This site began collecting photos of duckface earlier this year and already have more than 140 pages.

It’s kind of like someone pointing out that the lady from the Spangles commercials has a mild speech impediment—which you never noticed before—and now that’s all you hear whenever she talks. Now I only see duckface whenever I’m on Twitter or Facebook. Thanks, Stop Making That Duckface!...thanks a lot. (Hat tip to Richard!)

Those Indiana dooshes need to be hit with a 2X4....the last one is pretty hot, however.

I think we should differentiate between the duckface (with the flatter lips) and the kissyface (as in the last picture). Either way, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed this horrid phenomena.

I had no idea that this actually had a name.

Maybe it all goes back to Zoolander.

Yes! I love that site! My new aim is to get a picture on it. I also just noticed that the Carmen Miranda meat-hat guy is kinda sporting the Duckface. Nice.
