Pardon me for starting off this post so cliche but has any other image in recent memory proven the phrase “a picture says a thousand words” so much as this one?

All day people have been going ham on the spread inside Vogue’s latest issue which features Kanye and Kim on the cover, but the photo that’s single-handedly threatened to break the Internet is this Vogue North West Kimye selfie pic, which no one can deny captures this couple’s true essence.

I believe writer Matt Novak said it best when he wrote: “This photo is going to be taught in every media studies course of the next 100 years.”

That’s exactly the sentiment I had when I looked at this shot, and that thought was quickly followed by another, which was: And I bet Kanye and Kim don’t even get it.

Caption this pic and tell us what — if anything — you think was going through the West family’s head when they were asked to take this photo. Are they still playing the media and consumers or are they getting played this time around?
