Non-Sneeze Goes Viral

So you’re Paul Ryan. You’re Speaker of the House and you’re swearing in legions of new Congressional representatives. Each one gets a photo op with you and the fam.
Then this kid to your right puts his face into his elbow for the photo. You express concern about the potential sneeze. Then a little annoyance.
In fact the 17-year-old son of Roger Marshall, a Kansas congressman, was dabbing, “a viral dance move popularised by US athletes and rappers, and embraced by teenagers as an irreverent or celebratory gesture” as The Guardian helpfully defines it.
Cal Marshall may have been a hit in social media but his dad tweeted that he was grounded.
And with that, you no doubt return to more important people’s business like dismantling Obamacare.
