It Has Happened Again: Crying MJ Part Two

Now and again certain opportunities present themselves. These are chances that simply cannot be passed up. Michael Jordan crying (again) is one of those situations.

On Tuesday, when Barack Obama was handing out Medals of Freedom to various Americans, MJ was one of those to have the prestigious honour bestowed upon him. Sat in the audience, while the president introduced the b'ball legend, sure enough, he was there and was holding back the tears.

Obama himself was the first to take his swipe at the former Chicago Bulls star, saying he's "more than just an internet meme".

But, of course, it wasn't going to end there.

To amend the poetic words of football commentator Andy Gray: "You cannot give this generation, with this quality, that opportunity. Because they will meme it, and meme it they do."

Of all the shit that 2016 has thrown at us, all the deaths, all the political differences, all the shitstorms, to breathe new life into an already brilliant meme is a diamond in a sea of turds.

This is truly a crowning jewel in Obama's presidential reign. Thanks, Obama.
