LOL, it was not a funeral, it was a memorial service celebrating Mandellas life. The SA culture for this type of event is significantly different than ours. Have you not seen the news and all the dancing in the streets?

Not everyone does death the same way, and I'll bet Mandella would have enjoyed the selfie.

My will states specifically no funeral, no wake...have a party instead and a great road trip to spread my ashes in some of my favorite places! And I guess I'll have to add take a selfie or two.

More selfies in his future, no doubt.

Incidentally, it's been fun to watch the coverage: The British Press lambasts Cameron, The Danish Press is going after Thorning Schmidt and the US press is of course gunning for Obama - all the while ignoring the other 2.

You think only teenagers are taking selfie pics on their cellphones? And Obama is just an American hating gutter slime? Wow, you far right wingers are so far removed from reality that it isn't even funny....well it is kind of funny with a side of sad.

What's wrong with this picture?
What's wrong with the picture is the fact that you had to lie about the mood of the people at the event. It was a CELEBRATION, with music, dance, laughter and smiles. Why do you have to make stuff up about somber and serious people?

Either way.....probably not the best move.
What's with your obsession with Bush?
