It would appear the "selfies" 15 minutes of fame aren't up just yet.

The "selfie stick" is a retractable pole the clamps onto your smartphone, allowing you to get the best picture possible and to look like a huge tool in the process.

Nordstrom department stores started carrying the "Selfie On A Stick" in November, re-ordered twice before Christmas and now they are sold out.In fact. over 100,000 selfie sticks were sold during the holidays.

I can honestly say that I would never use one of these, but it looks like I am in the minority on this one.

Check out a "how to" video on the selfie stick.
