A Horrible Trend

Is anyone else just unbelievably sick of the "finger in the mouth" pose that all amateur models seem to favour recently? I'll be browsing through someone's portfolio and while their photos are very well composed, the models will be smiling coyly (in their opinion) with one finger between their teeth (or against their lip or over their lips, or just in the general vicinity of their oral orifice). Every. Single. One. I've gone through entire galleries on deviantART where every model has at least one photo with her finger on her molars.

Models, I have a request: QUIT IT! It's not cute, it's not funny, it's not original, it's not interesting, it's not creative. Interact with your surroundings. Pretend you've just seen something tragic happen. Recall the best moment of your life. DO ANYTHING BUT STICK A FINGER IN YOUR MOUTH AND SMILE FLIRTATIOUSLY AT THE CAMERA. Everyone has seen this pose before. You want to stand out? Do something that you can't find in the profile photos of 13-year-old girls.

Harsh? Quite possibly. True? Hell motherfucking yes, in my opinion. What do you think?
