First Posted: 11/19/10 08:16 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:15 PM ET

Whoever invented the "roller coaster camera" truly is a genius: it's a simple way to milk theme park customers for even more money. "This is what you looked like two minutes ago when you were traveling at a fast speed! Give us ten bucks so you can keep it forever!" But for many, it's just another opportunity to be creative. While many people go the obvious route and flash the camera or give it the finger, here are some more creative examples of roller coaster passengers mugging for the camera, in poses that range from silly to elaborate. Vote for the funniest!
