Why do people smile during their mug shot?


I see plenty of mug shots of people who are smirking or have a big smile on their face. What is so funny about getting arrested?

    That is a very optimistic way of looking at it. I'm getting booked so why not have some fun with it. I always wondered if the cops were making jokes or something. The weed / alcohol may help with the laughter as well. :-)

    lisa beat me to this same comment...90% of these characters are under the influence of "something" & aren't fully aware of what's going on. One famous mug shot will go down in history, however disgusting. "Jodi Arias." She's just a psycho!!
