You can either do it, or you can't. Much like rolling your tongue or popping out double jointed limbs, making this face is not a thing that can be taught. Start with a snarl on one side of your mouth, like Elvis. Now slide your jaw away from that snarl while stretching your bottom lip way over to the other side.
As you can see, my girl demonstrates a clear propensity for the making of this face. She's got it, although her execution is somewhat less than the masterpiece of a mug that her mother can produce. I'll cut her some slack, though, because it's hard to make the face on command, especially for the camera. Thing is, it's impossible to make the face while laughing.
Okay, let's take a break. We'll see if any other members of our family can help out.
It's up to us, girlfriend. Pull it together. We've got a legacy to uphold!
|That's my girl.
To the next generation, I apologize.
