The Duck Face Epidemic is an epidemic of young women making this stupid looking face called a “duck face” in the photos they post of themselves online. Encyclopedia Dramatica explains further. The video is funny. Seems like a stupid fad if you ask me.
I do like those photos that young women take of themselves and put on Facebook and whatnot. I also like the photos they take of themselves with their friends where they all have their arms around each other or they are all putting their faces together. There’s an intimacy there – they really so seem to love each other and care about each other deeply – that’s frankly missing from even the closest male friendships.
I was watching these three young women talk the other day. They’re all freshmen in college. They were going on about their problems and they were listening to each other so intently, and the level of empathy was so high. It was amazing. We guys don’t really get. Female friendships are very deep and intense and I actually envy them for that.
Young women are so cute in a way. Vain and a bit airheaded, but there’s something wonderful about them that seems to go away as a woman ages. The main thing is that young women are really having fun! As women age, I think a lot of them are not having so much fun anymore.
Anyway, the video is pretty damn funny.
