Photojournalism is the new awesome

Perhaps some of you remember that a few months ago I went to Utah and posted a photo of this adorable couple that wore their matching bluetooth ear pieces all through breakfast.


Brigham suggested that I send the photo to Vice Magazine as a possible "Don't", which I did. For those of you that hate the F-word and therefore don't read Vice, you should know that they are famous for their "Do" and "Don't" social conduct lists. "Dos" usually involve girls wearing high heels somehow, and "Don'ts" are all over the board. Well. Eagle-eye Briggie spotted our photo in the latest copy of Vice! We are famous! Well. These two people I snuck a photo of are famous! Just remember that The New Awesome brought it to you first.

We are on the Vice website as well, but don't forget that I told you that you should like the F-word if you read Vice...

    This makes me want to weep. I hope these guys never see it. I hope they never know that everyone who looks at that picture or reads Vice thinks they are better than them.

    Sometimes Vice is spot on with their observations and you thank them for being hilarious and right on. But other times they get a little too F you. I think this case is the latter.

    don't worry jordan and betsy. i don't think those two will ever see Vice. They will be too busy waiting for people to call them on their handless phone sets during every meal.

    damn i loved the caption they wrote for them.

    genius.

    and i bet they are furious that their likeness is being used unwittingly for other's enjoyment.

    the best thing about a Vice "do" is that it's a total Glamour "don't"
