MOST of humanity would instinctively use a ‘selfie stick’ to catch a fish rather than for taking pictures of themselves, it has been confirmed.
The Institute of Studies undertook an experiment where they gave children in the developing world a ‘selfie stick’ and asked them to make use of it.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Most of them tied a piece of string to the end and dangled it in the nearest river.
“They also used bundles of selfie sticks tied together with string for small-scale building projects, or simply pretended they were swords and chased their friends around with them.
“They’re kids after all.”
Professor Brubaker did eventually explain the selfie sticks’ intended use: “Then the kids started getting other kids to photograph them fishing, and used image processing software to make the fish look bigger than they actually were.
“Just because they’re struggling against poverty doesn’t mean they don’t like bragging on Facebook.”
