Even More Politicians Making Funny Faces

Everyone seems to be hot and cranky this week. I thought I’d lighten the mood with another edition of politicians making funny faces, since the last one was so popular.

As I mentioned last time, Vice President Joe Biden is pretty much the king of funny faces in American politics. Here‘s one of my favorites.

I’m a big fan of this shot of British Prime Minister David Cameron wishing England’s cricket team well.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy says, “Talk to the hand.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel got a lot of press over this cleavage-baring dress, but I’m more impressed by her “Bitch, please!” side-eye action.

This photo of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper with two of his foster kittens is hilariously unsettling, even though he sports the same wooden expression as always. Proof that even kittens can’t fix every picture.

Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite picture ever of President Obama. Technically this is cheating because it’s more of a silly situation than a funny face. But here’s a picture of him wielding a lightsaber. (And yes, it’s real, not photoshopped.)

The Force is strong with this one.
