Celebrate International Take A Picture Under Your Desk Day

Hey folks!  Do you know what today is?  Yes, it’s November 9.  Yes, it’s Friday.  Yes, it’s three days after the Presidential election.  But it’s also…wait for it…International Take a Picture Under Your Desk Day!

Haven’t heard of International Take a Picture Under Your Desk Day?  Well, it’s pretty self explanatory.  Just get under your desk, take a picture and then share it everywhere!  Currently, pictures of people under their desks are just starting to pop up on Facebook, as well as on Twitter.  But the heart of International Take a Picture Under Your Desk Day seems to be on Google+, where images are pouring in under the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay, which has just started to trend.

A Google search shows up no results for this “holiday”, so it seems that someone on Google+ is trying to get something started, and they just may have succeeded, with new images coming into Google+ every few minutes.  If anyone has any background on this trend, please share it with us in the comments!

Here at Social Times we decided to jump on the bandwagon and celebrate this historic day with our own pictures of ourselves under our desks.  Check ‘em out below, and then get under that desk and take a picture of yourself!

Happy International Take a Picture Under Your Desk Day!

Cameron Scott‘s dog is settling in for a day of hard work under a make-shift desk in a coffee shop.  Cameron opted to not try to join his dog, after hearing what had happened to Mary (don’t worry, she’s OK)!
