Were you abused by a SLR as a child?

And thus can't use a camera with a mirror for those all-important selfies...

I can't see how you can take a selfie with an SLR unless you cheat and use live view with a swiveling screen.

... stick a wide angle lens on the camera, set the AF to area, turn the camera around and hit the shutter?

Result can't be much worse than the majority of other selfies

Alternatively you could just get one of those new-fangled cameras with one of those fancy "self timers" (first introduced by Contax in 1936, I believe) and one of those funky "tripod" thingies.

I am pretty sure that a 'proper' selfie requires handholding the camera. And making a face.
