A good thing about selfies is that you don't need to rely on somebody else's camera skills (or lack of) in order to get a good picture. As Charles-Guillaume Étienne one said, "If you want something done right, do it yourself," and nothing can possibly go wrong if you're the one with your finger on the button...right? Well, not quite. Check out this list of hilarious selfie fails compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. From people getting caught out by mirrors they forgot were there, to folks who simply didn't check behind them before they snapped their picture, this collection should serve as a funny reminder that doing something yourself isn't always such a good thing. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!
