Nancy Pelosi... social media star?


That's pretty much the status Pelosi attained after her sarcastic clapping during President Donald Trump's State of the Union address became an instant meme.

Here it is again, just in case you've been living under a rock for the last week.


The internet obsessed over the clap, giving rise to a slew of memes like this one...

...and it looks like "the clap heard around the world" has found fans in the likes of singer Katy Perry (Teenage Dream) and actor Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), who met Pelosi at the MusiCares Person of the Year ceremony honoring country music legend Dolly Parton at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Did we mention the three of them took the opportunity to recreate Pelosi's State of the Union clap?

The internet ate this up.



Even Pelosi's daughter, writer Christine Pelosi, weighed in.

It's pretty clear where Christine gets her own sense of humor.



Last week, Christine Pelosi said that memeable clap brought her "back to the teen years."

"Oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she's disappointed that you thought this would work. But here's a clap," wrote Christine on Twitter.

Pelosi will never be able to live this down!

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
