Our culture seems to grab onto something and hold on, like a bull dog on a pork chop. Before we know it, everyone is doing it, or needing it, or wanting it. To the point of it is cute, then slightly annoying, then downright stupid and worn - out.
Here are five things, in no particular order, that have worn out their welcome, and need to go.

5. The "duck lips"
For some reason, someone got the idea of making a “kissy face” to take a photo and then someone started calling it “duck lips” and soon everyone started making them. Intelligence alert! Ducks do not have lips, and posing like this only makes you look goofy. (See also “selfie.”)
4. The fake gang sign in pictures
OK, maybe it is not a fake gang sign, but a sign for “peace” held sideways, upside down, or at an angle. Or it could be the letter “V” … or it could be a game of “Rock, paper, scissors” caught in mid-play. At any rate, in the big scheme of things, it means … nothing.
Al Capone, Bugs Moran, and Tony Accardo were real gangsters. (Together they have been responsible for multiple murders, killing more people than Miley Cyrus in concert.) None of them wore their pants past their as# to prove how bad they were. Enough already with the oversized britches and the hand grasping the crotch to keep them up.
2. The Kardashians, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus
Enough! Enough! No need to explain ... and if they all decide to join forces for one reality show, we as a planet are doomed. WHY do we care what these people are doing?
1. Selfies in the bathroom
Before camera phones it was called “taking a picture of myself.” If you are going to post a photo of yourself, at least clean up your background. And standing in front of their toilet and tub just deletes any and all sex appeal.
