Duck face…

No, that’s duck, duck…with a “d” not an “f".

There is a sad phenomenon sweeping the world, particularly in social media circles where people, most often young girls, or grown women who really should know better, post pictures of themselves pulling a “duck-face”.

Extensive 30 seconds of online research found these descriptions, shockingly though, the font of all wisdom, Wikipedia had nothing, seems even they drew the line…

From urban  (Please note, I selected the more pleasant descriptions – some people REALLY don’t like the duck-face!!!):

  Similar to pouting. It is to express double the emotion of a pout, so instead of simply jutting out your bottom lip, you push them both out, making you look like a duck.

  A sad and tragic epidemic hitting young girls all across myspace and facebook usually found on girls who think they are flirty.

  A term used to describe the face made if you push your lips together in a combination of a pout and a pucker, giving the impression you have larger cheekbones and bigger lips.

  A facial expression utilized by attention-seeking teenage girls in which they push their lips outward and upward to give the appearance of large, pouty lips.
And then I found a treasure trove of duck face pics here…please find a few of my favourites:

First we have the amusing -
Derek Zoolander
 Then the deluded –
Ashley Tisdale...I don't actually know who the hell she is!

Megan Fox...possibly the  REAL reason why she was sacked from transformers!
 Then the disturbing –
Lisa Rinna...Might be time to stop with the surgery Lisa...just sayin'

...And then we have a special mention under the title 
“What the FUCK!!!!”-
Janice Dickenson...I'm speechless!
Now, I have chosen to show pictures of “celebrity” face pullers as they deserve everything they get and it is wrong to mock the afflicted, even if the affliction just seems to be being a teen aged girl.  Hopefully some of them will grow out of it.

So fess up, have any of you been guilty of the heinous crime of posting duck face pics on-line?


  1. No. Never. Ugly no make-up faces. But never a duck face. And besides where would I get the collagen?

  2. Hahaha Bronnie, don't think you need to go that far, just suck in the cheeks and push out your lips, tilt your head to the side...voila, duck face!


Tell me what you think...
