    I think it's a great word. There's nothing like taking selfies to let the online community know where you are at and what you are wearing. And thank you I did just get a haircut!

    hahaha... some how these guys pull it off in a classy way. Although, if you notice somethings a little off. In the photo on the left the man is not wearing a hat and in the photo on the right he is...

    Yes, that's true! Also, the second gentleman on the left should be wearing a coat in the 1st photograph... But that doesn't necessarily mean this is a hoax, does it?

    With further investigation you will also notice that the ground they are standing on is completely different. I have to call it as I see it, I'm sorry, it´s a hoax!
