The Wing-Manning Tumblr Catches Couples Kissing in Public Places

The Wing-Manning tumblr blog features an unimpressed man in front of couples making out in public places. Arguably one of the best tumblr accounts created in 2013, the blog has also translated well into an Instagram account. The blog is run by Drew Philips, who is shown unsmiling in the pictures, and Scott Cleveland, the photographer.

The Wing-Manning tumblr incorporates many trends in popular culture and Western society. The blog's name suggests Philips is assisting the two people in their romantic endeavors (i.e. kissing), as the tagline reads, "making out in public? we're behind you." The hilarious combination of awkwardness, unrelenting support and absurdity make it worth pursuing time and time again. The blog also serves to document the notorious phenomenon known as the 'dance floor make out.'
