You’ve seen Instagram and Facebook users take selfies at Chernobyl and the Holocaust Museum, thanks to the “Selfies at Serious Places” Tumblr, but Jason Feifer may have one-upped himself this time with a new “Selfies at Funerals” Tumblr.

Most of the offenders seem to be teenagers taking selfies at their grandparents’ funerals, and like the amateur photographers of “Selfies at Serious Places,” they show a remarkable lack of awareness. Captions include, “Funeral dress from today,” or “Love my hair today.”

Oddly enough, at least two of the 20 selfies posted so far are by fans of Harry Styles, the One Direction heartthrob, as evidenced by their usersnames. At least one of the other users is a Justin Bieber fan. It is unclear what the correlation is.
