Since 2004, 99% of all photos are now of the naked variety. Said the embarrassed photographer: ‘I had every very intention of stripping off and covering himself in jelly, like most self-respecting adults, but I mistook the shutter button for the on switch. Normally I’d just say cheese while covered in cheese…just cheese…and a sprig of parsley, to add that bit of mystery’.
One Art Historian explained: ‘Passport photos have long been naked; but as they are from the neck up, no one noticed. Now, however, family albums are stuffed with a plethora of exposed body parts. You can’t look anywhere without spotting Grandad’s giblets; dangling for all to see. Let’s face it, awkward family Christmas photos have become a tad more awkward’.
