A trend that was started by beautiful looking but shy women who wanted to show off their true glamour and receive compliments for it on Blog and social media sites. This trend has now sadly been commandeered by beer swigging male college jocks that want to take stupid pictures of themselves showing off and post it online. Sometime meme's are added to make the picture seem funny or make a point.
