nb “fugly” in this context means “FUNNY UGLY”, ok?
One of the world’s best and funniest people, the writer Jenny Lawson, wrote a blog post yesterday about some shit she pulled at the Mom 2.0 Summit conference, and it was awesome.
I KNOW RIGHT!?! That happens to me too! My arm just isn’t long enough to stop my neck doing that chubby baby’s thigh thing, that is unless I hold the damn phone at a 90 degree angle above my head. And probably drop it on my face.
Anyway she wrote about how much fun it was, and also how
scary liberating it was to share a photo of herself and her friend looking like – in her words – giant thumbs and/or penises. And because she encouraged her readers to share their awesomeness, they posted their funny ugly selfies in the comments section.
Except I couldn’t get the photo to upload so I decided to write my own post instead. Lucky you!
Anyway Jenny then put her photos through this app called How Old Do I Look? I remember seeing a link to it on FB last week or the week before but I couldn’t be arsed. But today I tried it, even if just to see if, like Jenny, one of my fugly photos could confound a computer’s brain.
The app warned me beforehand that it might not get my age / gender / species right, and that they were “working to improve this feature”. Personally I think it’s fine just the way it is.
Hot Tip: Having a crappy phone camera saves you smearing vaseline on the lens. Next I did the fugly (ie FUNNY ugly) ones.
Actually it’s more like Little Nicky.
This is how I get out of bed in the morning and J never comments on my youthful appearance. Is that grounds for a divorce?
Oh, and I see I will also be a man. Awesome! I get to skip menopause. Jenny was so right! That was heaps fun. And the more times I read her post the more I piss myself laughing. My face and neck hurts now, but I’m thinking of it as a free facial plus everyone knows it helps you stay young if you stretch.

Showed the boys and they thought it was awesome, then Finn asked me to do some more so the computer would think I was 63.
lol So funny! I will have to try this with that app!
It was loads of fun, but be warned: time suckage will occur…
That app is hilariously bad – I wonder if they did that on purpose. Did you see this one: http://www.theshovel.com.au/2015/05/01/microsoft-app-correctly-guesses-what-year-you-think-it-is/
Hahah yes! I do believe I saw that somewhere, most likely on your FB! You find the coolest stuff. I definitely think our esteemed *cough cough*…leader …*cough* would be happier in the 50s; he’d have the exact same attitude but without people getting as annoyed and taking the piss out of him for it.
