Fiona the Hippo is clearly just trying to satisfy her propensity for wonderfully romantic moments; and the results are nothing short of a glorious photobombing moment.
As Eminem once said, “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow because opportunity knocks once in a lifetime.”
That’s how the son of Kansas Rep. Roger Marshall felt during a quick photo op at his father’s swearing in ceremony. As House Speaker Paul Ryan turned and smiled for the camera, Marshall’s son went for a quick, inconspicuous, and heroic dab.
That’s when Ryan, perhaps, smelling dissent in the air turned and shut it down, like so many public healthcare initiatives.
Ryan asks the young man, “Are you going to sneeze?”
The boy, having just taken his only opportunity to embarrass his father, future self, and the guy who’s only dream is to have 100% privatized healthcare, put his hand down for the picture. The people, once again, have been crushed.
Paul Ryan admits that he’s totally out of touch with young voters:
Just finished swearing-in photos. Nearly 300 members. Countless cute kids. Still don't get what dabbing is, though. pic.twitter.com/E2hFgyPYZT— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) January 3, 2017
Rep. Marshall jails his son for something that’s clearly protected by the First Amendment:
Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau was leaving the beach as a bride-to-be was coming down the stairs. With his wetsuit pulled down to his waist, he photobombed her wedding pic with his bare torso.
Canada is lucky that its PM does not have the physique of, say, D. Trump...That would not have been a sight for sore eyes.

Either this Russian business lady photoshopped the sh*t out of this for the sake of a few (hundred) likes on her Facebook feed, or she actually flashed this selfie with an alien breathing down her neck.
Maybe this is why we haven't discovered proof of extraterrestrial life; the potential 'alien' in question sits right behind someone, and that person's too busy popping off selfies to notice some life defining, groundbreaking business.Viktor Lunev, commenting on behalf of a Russian aero-centre, said: 'Pilots and stewards are very superstitious and maybe there is a reason.' Yeah, or maybe this is real life, and the invasion's right round the corner Lunev.
Of course, maybe the poor galactic conquistador was just trying to commute to work in peace; who are we to stir up a feverish fuss about it?
This is quite possibly the dad joke of the century.
Ricarra and her boyfriend thought they were just going to have a normal homecoming, but the teen's ~goofy~ dad had another idea.
Sharee Schock, a photographer in Wisconsin, was taking her daughter's homecoming photos when dad Benjamin decided to go in for the photobomb.
Mom posted the photo on Facebook, because moms. And it has been shared over 3 million times.
Thanks, mom and dad. We're sure these teens just love this.
Benedict Cumberbatch is officially the king of photobombs.
At the Golden Globes on Sunday, Margaret Cho was introduced as the latest member of the Hollywood Foreign Press. She dressed up like a North Korean reporter for “Movies Wow” magazine and posed for a quick photo with Meryl Streep (taken by Michael Keaton).
But then boom: Cumberbatch!
He pulled the same move on U2 at last year’s Oscars.
After the stunt, things got a bit more serious as Hollywood Foreign Press President Theo Kingma came out on stage and received a standing ovation for this statement on free speech.
“As international journalists we understand the freedom of artistic expression. It is not only an integral part of the American fabric, but a beacon that is reflected across the globe,” he said. “Together we will stand united against anyone that will repress free speech. Anywhere, from North Korea to Paris.”
Stacey Wallace, 28, from Vancouver, took this amazing selfie at Lightning Lake in British Columbia's Manning Park.
"In order to get the selfie I laid on the ground meters away from the squirrel and slowly crawled towards him until I got close enough so that we were both in the shot. I took all the photos with my iPhone front camera.
I also coerced it with raw nuts to come out of his hole. You can see the nut sitting in front of his face.
The little guy also allowed me to hold it. It's actually a ground squirrel I think. But they burrow in holes so that's more like a gopher."
Well, this is not exactly the image you want plastered all over the Internet on Election Day.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) is running in a tight race for re-election against Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.
If Republicans take control of the Senate, and McConnell wins, he is expected to become the next Senate Majority Leader.
