One of the newest photo memes out there is “baguetting.” This means taking a picture of a scene where an object or body part has been substituted for — say it with us — a baguette.
Meet the latest internet photo craze called Baguetting. We all remember planking and then breaded cats, but as a Frenchman might say, this is baguetting to be ridiculous.
The thing is in a group of celebrities and comedians have launched a unique internet craze of posting pictures of themselves creatively posing with baguettes in their everyday life.
They supplement the loafs of bread for everyday objects – and in some cases body parts – the stick of bread makes appearances in the personal lives of Bridesmaids’ actress Ellie Kemper (where she enthusiastically works to juice a loaf in her home blender), actress Marcia Gay Harden and Jim O’Heir among dozens of others.
Just note, that this is really pretty a thing now, because George Takei, lord of the Internets, has taken part in it. As he is seen straight-faced aboard a plane, he exhibits no confusion in the piece’s immense value in his own life as he’s photographed riding with his loaf held close in his lap.
Seen under the creation of comedians Tim Bierbaum and John Milhiser of Serious Lunch, the new photo craze appears to take inspiration from the international phenomenon of planking – where people lie perfectly straight and still in unusual places like a piece of wood – as well as breaded cats – where cats are photographed with their faces awkwardly stuck in a hole of sliced bread, according to DailyMail.
As Mr Bierbaum and Mr Milhiser coin it, their work is simply ‘baguette-me-nots.‘
Look through the gallery and among masterpieces one can see the stick of bread as an ice luge for shots, as a deadly intruder terrifyingly peeping behind an opening door, a curler for hair, and a hand for holding a set of playing cards. Also the highly private shot of one comedian caught using his in the bathroom is in the view.
