A couple’s viral photo results in a Twitter thread that’ll make your day
Embarrassing photos happen to everyone and it’s best to embrace ’em, share ’em, and go viral on the internet.
New Yorker Mike Tague attended a friend’s wedding with his boyfriend, Andrew Mercier, and while sitting at their table, the photographer snapped a candid photo of the couple. The photo is lovely until you notice one thing in the way — a glass that turned Tague’s face into something out of a fun house.
Sure, Tague looks like a hybrid between a shrunken head and James Van Der Beek, but that didn’t stop him from sharing the photo on the internet. The image has since brought joy to the masses living in an otherwise cruel world.
Tague told Mashable, “My first reaction was ‘This is so ugly that I hope nobody ever sees it.’ But then I thought that my friends and family would really enjoy seeing a messed up, ugly, crazy version of my face in such a nice setting. And the contrast with Andrew really helped make it funny, at least to me.”
Thank you, Mr. Tague — we all needed this.
We vote yes for the profile picture.
My boyfriend looks like a snack and I look like a decaying vodka gummy bear

Mercier said, “I definitely laughed because Mike has such bad luck with photos, but mostly I was glad that at least I looked pretty good!”
When asked about his reaction toward the photo becoming such a hit, Tague said he couldn’t believe it because it is such a “dumb photo,” but on the bright side it has received lots of funny, positive feedback.
The results are in: the world is garbage but my boyfriend is hot

The world also couldn’t help but react with joy to the photo.
I don’t know you, but I wanted to say that is funny as hell.
