"But every now and then, an exception comes along," he wrote on Twitter. 

Bloch is among many social media users who applauded one man's photo, which originally appeared on Imgur

The lazy animal hangs with one arm outstretched with a sly smile in what looks like a purposeful pose.

"This is an acceptable selfie," one Imgur user wrote. 

"(This is) the only reason one should own a selfie stick," another user said.
