Hummm,...be careful when you quote Urban Dictionary.....there's another definition for a 'selfie', but it wouldn't be NSFQ. Here's another tongue-in-cheek definition:

<em>'Selfie': The taking of a picture of yourself and posting it on Facebook because you have extremely low self-esteem and you need people to comment to tell you how hot or pretty you look. In reality you just look desperate for attention. And no matter how attractive you might be, you still look pathetic. See also duck face/kissy face makes you look (silly).</em>

LOL, it "wouldn't" be NSFQ? Preeeeeetty sure you mean the opposite Smiley Very Happy It would be NSFQ or it wouldn't be SFQ...

Good catch. The old double negative trap {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Nope....the other Urban Dictionary definition would not be NSFQ....it refers to, er uh...a 'self pleasured act'. One who debates masterfully. Smiley Very Happy.

Which is why I didn't include it when I referenced it....duh....it also used some other nasty words and analogies. What's the diff? Standard dictionaries often have multiple entries under definition, and the one that fits is shared.

I agree with sidsmom on the definition. I read it as the word ""typically"" is referring to taking it with a smartphone or webcam.

DH and I take ""ussies"" lol

What's the big deal. Why do some get so mad about this!?

Our android has a front facing camera. We don't have to take our reflection by standing and facing a mirror or holding the camera up in a weird position while hoping the pic will take. We can look right at the camera and see ourselves like a mirror. We take some great pics of ourselves when we're traveling or out in nature when there's nobody around to hold the camera for us.

That interpretation would require that they had been sloppy with their punctuation (which one hopes the OED can be relied upon not to be!)

I think they are stupid. Now that I know who sends them I delete before I open .

My kitten is famous too. She has her own Facebook fan page with literally thousands of fans from all over the world. She is so photogenic and everyone loves seeing her pics. I also take selfies of myself holding her.

We receiver selfies of DD, DSIL and our DGD who is 9 months old. We enjoy them all. The last one received two days ago was one of our granddaughter. She took a picture of herself on her mom's iPhone 5. She had this look on her face like she was really concentrating. Too funny!

Hmmm, I guess my family, friends & I are weirdos. We like to take pictures of pretty scenery, activities at a public event, like dancers, interesting signage, etc rather than of ourselves. Strange as it may sound, we already know what we look like.

I've never taken one. It's not something I would do.
