It didn’t take long for the president’s Reddit verification photo to be turned into a meme Wednesday. 

After President Barack Obama joined Reddit for an AMA on Wednesday, it was only a matter of time before his verification photo was turned into into a meme.

Redditors and Tumblr used that photo, and others, to comment on the president’s live interview, his interest in Reddit, and how it unintentionally crashed the social news site.
