Yep. “Selfie.” They picked “selfie.” Grant you, it could have been “twerk.” So I suppose we can count ourselves lucky. And if you think “twerk” is bad then I dare you to Google the other runner up: “schmeat.” You can read more about the decision making process and, lo, read the lofty sentence in which “selfie” was used for the first time here.

I can shake my fist and tell you to get off my etymological lawn all I want but the evidence below makes it clear that this is a term worth acknowledging and naming. That is to say: Selfies, they’re not just for Kardashians and Biebers anymore.
