Aw, Helle no. (via @TheBlogPirate)

These may be the four most important photographs to come out of Nelson Mandela's funeral. Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, who has a reputation for being a bit starstruck, seems delighted to be seated next to U.S. President and Guy Who Is Pretty Decent At Basketball Barack Obama.

Michelle Obama, on the other hand, looks really, really irritated. Whether that's because she is sad Mandela died or she's put off by people flirting with her man or, I dunno, maybe Michelle's just really frustrated that Thorning-Schmidt broke so many of her campaign promises to the Danish people, it makes for a shocking sequence of photos that the Internet has really enjoyed reading way too much into.
