10 Things That McKayla Maroney And President Obama Totally Aren’t Impressed By

Since I’ve been aware of its existence for a little over an hour now, I’ll just assume that every human being in the world has seen the newest adorable picture to grace our humble interwebs. It’s a photo of American Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney visiting the White House, and posing with President Barack Obama. That in and of itself is adorbz-worthy, but add to the fact that they’re both making the ‘McKayla Is Not Impressed’ meme face, and I think I’m obsessed. I love everything about this, from the fact that McKayla has a sense of humor about it to the fact that Obama knows what a meme is. But here’s the thing. There’s no caption on this photo, so I don’t know what they’re not impressed by in this particular moment. Gawker has decided it’s them imitating Ohio’s feelings about Mitt Romney in the election, but I’m not so sure. With a girl in her teens and a president this savvy, I have a feeling it’s something a lot more pop culture-y. Here’s a list of some of my guesses: Ten Things That McKayla Maroney and President Obama Totally Aren’t Impressed By.

  1. Matthew McConaughey‘s mustache. And skeletal frame, but mostly mustache.
  2. Felix Baumgartner’s 23-mile free-fall. Call me when it’s 24.
  3. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are back together.
  4. No more Twinkies.
  5. Channing Tatum is People‘s selection for Sexiest Man Alive this year. Sure, he’s sexy, but is he sexier than Ryan Gosling? No, no he is not.
  6. The fact that we still don’t know the names for Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer‘s twins. And I really want to know.
  7. Liz and Dick. Enough said.
  8. Pre-Thanksgiving Christmas decorations.
  9. Two And A Half Men is still on television.
  10. I didn’t work out today.

And there you have it. Look how alert and topical our nation’s leader and it’s judgiest gymnast are. I couldn’t be prouder.
