Colin Powell's throwback selfie is one for the ages

Colin Powell apparently was hip long before "selfie" entered the lexicon.

In honor of Throwback Thursday, the former secretary of State and retired Army general posted a "selfie" on Facebook that he took of himself 60 years ago, by standing in front of a mirror and pointing the camera forward. The picture shows off Powell looking very dapper in his youth.

"Eat your heart out Ellen," says Powell, in a nod to Ellen DeGeneres. The TV talk-show host's celebrity-studded "selfie" during the Academy Awards became the most tweeted picture in history.
