A WOMAN who apparently found a mislaid iPad and didn't return it to its owner is taking self portraits of herself with it, and unfortunately the owner is getting to see them.

People take selfies, or self portraits, all the time. We have become a bronzed, duck-faced, image-obsessed, narcissistic society. If you use Facebook you probably see a lot of them.

The main image being circulated of this lady is an odd one. Unless it's her real face, in which case she is a beautiful woman to whom we mean to cause no offence.

It's what? A cross-eyed, duck-face pout? It puts us in mind of the sort of fish that you would throw back immediately. That aside, we wish her all the best with her self photographed modeling career.

We wish more that she would return the iPad to Allen Engstrom. Engstrom, who owned the iPad, was flying from Phoenix to Denver when he left it on a plane. Self head slapping over with he attempted to get it back. But no. It had fallen into the hands of society at large, or one woman at least.

Whoever the woman is, whenever she takes a glorious photograph of herself she shares it with Engstrom. We can imagine that this is maddening. He shared some of them on Facebook and Twitter.

"The wonderful person who snaked my iPad continues to take glamour shots of herself apparently unaware that they are backing up to my iPhone," Engstrom wrote on Facebook. "So naturally I'm blasting them out to the entire world. Enjoy!"

His Facebook account is now unavailable, which means that we are unable to find out if there has been any news in his hunt for his missing iPad or progress in her modeling career. µ
