"Today, I slept with this new guy for the first time. After sex, he said the doggie style position was fun, it made him wonder what it would be like to rape a girl. FML"
10secondtraumas.com is first of all three girls: Anna Akana ("Anna Banana", who barks all the time but doesn’t bite – producer, writer, actress), Deidre Devlin (graduated from USC with a degree in screenwriting - also an actress - her ultimate dream is to nab a tampon commercial), and Alexis Dickey (the third actress - more commonly referred to as "Dickey", you can guess why). There’s also Shaun Jones (DP and occasional guest star for 10ST - since he knows how to shoot guns, and because of his camera skills, the girls have to approve everything he says).

I'm going to go on a limb and say this actually wasn't all that funny.
I mean, the video quality was good, the shot was set up and framed nicely, but it just boils down to saying something shocking followed by the "wide eyed stare of disbelief." It seems like their style is to try and force an awkward situation into comedy - which is a style that can work (reference anything with Steve Carell). But I just think by trying to force that style, they lose part of the charm of the original fml. Especially since it's so short; it seems like they're trying to sound-bit something our imagination could recreate with much more humor.
So, I do appreciate their effort, but I just don't think awkward stares really work for fmls.
Everybody's talking about Ebola at the moment. I have trouble keeping up with the latest trends. I'm going to wait until Christmas and see what special offers turn up in the shops, under funky new names…
