Selfie sticks, one of the most polarizing inventions of the past few years, are now available in spoon form.
That’s right — you can finally eat your cereal and take a picture of your face at the same time.
We have Cinnamon Toast Crunch to thank (scorn?) for this innovation in selfie-taking technology.
“Everyone loves a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but if you don’t post it on social media, did it really happen?” says a commercial for the product. “Problem solved: Introducing Cinnamon Toast Crunch selfie spoon. That’s right. It’s a selfie stick with a spoon on one end.”
“Gone are the days of eating a delicious breakfast and all your friends not knowing about it. So why choose between eating or posting? With the selfie spoon, you can do both — in a flash.”
The commercial claims that you can order on www.selfiespoon.com and receive the product for free.
We are left with one question: How did we, as a society, let this happen?
