Sometimes a meme takes over the Internet and becomes a genuine phenomenon, like "Gangnam Style" or, to go way back, the Rick Roll. And sometimes it becomes a flash in the pan that you remember only halfway just a few months later-- remember when everyone was all worked up about the lady who reviewed the Olive Garden in North Dakota?
But once in a while a meme gets forgotten only to be revived in the most powerful, amazing way possible-- and that's definitely what has happened with the fierce return of "McKayla Maroney Is Not Impressed." Take a look at the photo below, recently tweeted by the White House:
McKayla Maroney, as you hopefully remember, was a member of the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team who became instantly famous when she won the silver medal and looked hugely unimpressed with the whole thing. A tumblr, inevitably, was born to honor the whole thing, and apparently even though he's been in the midst of a brutal re-election campaign, President Obama got wind of the hubbub and knew exactly which face to make when the Women's Gymnastics Team-- a.k.a. the "Fierce Five"-- paid a visit to the White House on November 15.
No matter who you voted for two weeks ago, I think we can all agree: Mitt Romney would not be nearly as good at making the McKayla face as Obama is.
