Just when you thought that civilization had reached rock bottom—with Generation #YOLO snapping pictures at their grandparents' wakes and uploading to them to the Internet forever and ever—the leader of the free world and British Prime Minister David Cameron decided to stoop to that level.

Meanwhile, First Lady Michelle Obama was practicing her McKayla Maroney impression and President George W. Bush was posing for a picture with Bono. So, that's an image that also exists.
