Woman's accidental selfie at Sochi games goes viral

All eyes are on the winter Olympic games in Sochi, but one eye in particular stole the show.

An elderly woman appeared to get the wrong end of the camera when attempting to take a photograph of an ice hockey match, only to take one of her own eye.

Jeanne Moos has the story OutFront.

    Anyone notice its a picture OF a person taking a reverse selfie? More of a pose actually than a spontaneous error..that woulda bin the eye alone rather than a picture of someone taking a picture of their eye.

    I wish there were a cure for the stick-up-the-bum virus with which Mr. Madison seems to be afflicted...

    That picture is a piece of art. It symbolizes age vs. technology.

    I'm a little tired of the word "viral" for the internet. What happened to 'widespread' and 'popular' and 'highly prevalent?'

    Oh, wait.....I know, people are sorta stupid anymore. It's why people spell 'lose' as 'loose' and say 'like' all the time and think american politics are real. It's why people say "I could care less" instead of properly saying "I couldn't care less" and how the word "way" has replaced 'far' when saying things like "that is way too far," which, is okay, but used 'far' too much. What a silly nation of buffoons.

      Cliches have "gone viral" in the media. If I see one more "green powerhouse" that is "chock full of nutrients," I may vomit.
