A GROUP of people unsure of each others’ names have leaned together, grinning and giving wild hand gestures, as if they are the best friends in the world for a photo.
The sight of a phone camera held high has caused the group to ignore all social conventions and pretend to be a close-knit group of party companions for the benefit of others they do not know viewing the shot on social media.
Tom Booker, who was at the heart of the selfie beaming like he was having the time of his life, said: “Yeah, I think they’re mates of Jamie’s. I only met them tonight.
“Jamie I know though work, though not that well. I didn’t know he had a girlfriend, for example. Or that she’s such a cow. There she is in the photo with my arm around her, smiling.
“I buggered off about five minutes after it was taken, when I was left out of a round and felt nothing but huge relief. But yeah obviously we look like friends from childhood who party together every weekend and whose bond will never be broken. It’s a group selfie.”
