Recently, I stumbled upon a new social media phenomenon. Like most social media users in the Y-Generation, I immediately jumped onboard the bandwagon like those people playing Pirate Kings. The thing is, in this modern world where the glorification of beauty permeates into the deepest recesses of the mind and soul, it was pretty (zing) odd that this phenomenon even began.

But then I remembered that 2 years ago, we all worshipped a plump middle aged man galloping like a horse and it all made sense.

I digress. So this huge thing which made actual waves on the wide ocean that is the Internet is the #cryfie. It's not a difficult concept to grasp. The #cryfie literally explains itself; it's a selfie of yourself crying. Here's an actual dictionary explanation of a #cryfie:

It was found in a really old dictionary of unknown origins. Trust it. 

Now, I know that many of you will be going like, "Whaaaaaat? Why would people even want to do that?" or "That's so silly!" But of course, I don't have to remind you of what the Internet has to offer. Remember planking? Yeah, I try my best to keep it locked up in the little part of my brain where all bad things go to.

Being a man of the Internet, I decided to test out the #cryfie for different situations. Needless to say, I am now typing this out because I no longer have any friends, and those who are still on my Facebook friend list are all plotting the most painful way to punch my face in.

Here are the results.




And of course, the comments that ensued were nothing short of hilarious. I didn't know how much my friends loved and cared for me until this very moment when I posted my first ever #cryfie. It was like a deluge of emotions washing over me like the tears that stained my face.

So believe me. Post a #cryfie today and make sure that your friends know about it. You'll be getting all the likes and comments and attention from them. A #cryfie is also named because it's a cry for attention. Attention seekers, you now have a brand new outlet to garner all the attention for yourself. You won't be regretting it.
