Some clever person saw an opportunity in selfies. You have to hand it to them, pardon the feeble pun.
No more worrying about those awkward angles, no more fingers in the corner, no need to ask a stranger to take your photo – just get a selfie-stick. I won’t say anything else lest I succumb to mockery.
The photo is very crap, I know, sorry – midday on top of Table Mountain isn’t the best place or time for photos, but, hey, I saw a stick.
UPDATE 26 December: This sort of jumped out at me today and it’s just too perfect for words.
