Cool Teen Ruins Dad's Congressional Swearing In Ceremony With Meme

Roger Marshall is an obstetrician and former captain in the US Army Reserve who will begin his first term in the US House representing Kansas's first district starting today. Here he is being sworn in by Speaker Paul Ryan in the company of his family, most of whom are not total jabronis who hit weak-arse dabs during their dad's swearing-in.

But then there's his son. The one in the middle wearing the red jumper. (You couldn't wear a suit like everyone else?) This kid took an important moment in his father's career — possibly his proudest personal achievement other than maybe marrying his wife and watching the birth of all but one of his children — and decided spend the photo op hitting a weak-arse dab.

He held the pose (an internet culture phenomenon that peaked almost a full year ago) for so long, Speaker Ryan had tell him to "put your hand down" while physically moving his arm out of the way. Ryan asked, tactfully, "You gonna sneeze, is that it?" rather than saying what everyone in that room was thinking which was: wow kid. Your own father's swearing-in to elected office. And you took this moment to hit a weak-arse dab.

Hope it was worth it kid, because according to your dad's tweet, you're grounded. We reached out to Representative Marshall to learn of the duration of the grounding but had not heard back at time of writing.

What went wrong? How did the education system to thoroughly fail this goofus? Was his brain microwaved by Jill Stein's Wi-Fi? Has the meme economy driven America's children to stupidity? We're counting on you to pave us a brighter future, Representative Marshall.
