(Newser) – Well played: When the US Olympic gymnastics team visited the White House this week, silver medalist McKayla Maroney showed she has a sense of humor about her own Internet meme, with help from President Obama. The two posed with McKayla's legendary "not impressed" look from the podium, notes the Huffington Post. If you'll recall, she was heavily favored to win gold in the vault but fell in competition. Her reaction went viral, and Bleacher Report rounds up some of the best photoshop efforts here.
