As you all know, the Olympics are currently in full swing in London—and they kicked off with one heck of an Opening Ceremony last Friday. However, the breakout star of the ceremony wasn’t James Bond… it wasn’t Mr. Bean… it wasn’t the Arctic Monkeys… it wasn’t even the army of Mary Poppinses doing battle with a gigantic Lord Voldemort. No, the breakout star was none other than Queen Elizabeth II herself, who, after her unexpectedly energetic arrival, proceeded to wear a Face of Doom for the rest of the show. This was unusual, given that she’s almost always seen with a bright and sunny smile; it was also hilarious, and as such, she’s spawned a whole new Internet meme: “One Is Not Amused.” For your daily funny, here are our 9 favorite entries. Got any to add? Tell us about them in the comments!
