Making the rounds this week is this photo of England rugby player Manu Tuilagi giving Prime Minister David Cameron the “bunny ears” treatment:
When I first saw the photo, I giggled and thought, “Wow, that’s funny.” But then I started to think about what I — as a mom — would think if one of my sons did that to an elected official here in our country. And I became mortified. If that had been my son giving President Obama the “bunny ears”, I would have first crawled under a rock out of embarrassment, and then promptly called him to give him an etiquette lesson. I also likely would have demanded that the son in question write a formal letter of apology, not simply a tweet.
So considering that Manu was likely standing in that group for at least thirty photos, perhaps I won’t blame him for having a bit of fun.
A question for you: Who would you love to pose with for a photo? Would you ever take a “playful” shot if you could pose with that person?
