Here it is, as promised in my “DIY Glamour Shots
” entry, a little rant on Duck Face. It goes by other names, but Duck Face is the most common and it’s the one that is recognized by Wikipedia and, therefore, by myself.
What is Duck Face?
Gurning is the technical term for facial distortion. Duck Face is a variation of gurning in which an individual (usually a stupid girl) purses their lips and raises their eyebrows in an attempt to look sexy and accentuate their cheekbones.
Urban Dictionary defines Duck Face as: Stupid facial expression put forth by stupid women that don’t know how to smile. The Duckface is made by moving both lips has [sic] far up and outward as possible. Commonly seen in photos of slutty women where the lighting is too high up or they’re taking photos of themself [sic] in the mirror.
Encyclopedia Dramatica defines Duck Face as: Fat Girl Angle Shot 2.0.
Here are some examples of how to use Duck Face in a sentence:
“OMG, look at that stupid Duck Face.”
“Stop doing that Duck Face. You look stupid.”

Where Can I Get More Information About Duck Face?
MySpace and Facebook are great places to start. Many of the photos in this blog were found doing a Google Images search for “Duck Face Idiots.”
I am also fond of antiduckface.com.
