Selfies at Funerals?


Is there no limits to when it is acceptable to take selfies? It seems not... a tumblr account called 'selfiesatfunferals' is just that. 

A large number of (mainly) young people seem to find that taking a selfie at a funeral is completely fine. They then obviously feel the need to post it on various social networking sites including Twitter.

Some people realise something of  what they are doing as they say things like 'i going to hell' [sic] whereas others accompany the announcement they are at a funeral with 'lmao'.

Would you take a selfie a funeral? How would you react if someone took a selfie at a funeral you were attending? Is it simply putting a little fun into the funeral? Or is it just a harmless action that happens to be at a funeral?
