Give McKayla Maroney a lot of credit.

The Olympic gymnast is showing a sense of humor about the Internet meme spoofing her hilariously smug, indifferent reaction to winning a mere silver - not gold - medal in individual vault competition last week.

Here's McKayla and friends getting in on the act:

McKayla, Aly and Kyla

Her Fierce Five teammate, Aly Raisman, tweeted a pic of Maroney, Kyla Ross and herself standing outside a swimming pool and playfully sneering.

Making the same expression that launched the McKayla Maroney is NOT impressed and its many classic images on Tumblr, the girls look far from thrilled.

Hey, if the Dwight Howard trade doesn't impress McKayla, how do you think she's gonna react when the pool's unexpectedly closed? Exactly.

Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan for Vice President this morning, and apparently thinks very highly of him, as Paul received a promotion within five minutes!

Okay, not really, but in introducing the Wisconsin Congressman and rising GOP star to a Norfolk, Va., crowd, Romney finished his remarks with a gaffe:

"Join me in welcoming the next President of the United States, Paul Ryan!"

Of course ... if President Obama wins reelection, then Ryan wins the White House in 2016, Romney could be proven correct! Chances are that's not what he meant.

Mitt caught his error as Ryan made his way to the podium, then joked that "every now and then I've been known to make a mistake ... I didn't make one with this guy."

"I can tell you this, he's going to be the next Vice President of the United States."

Ryan and his budget-cutting ideas have the potential to transform the 2012 race; both parties responded to his nomination with a "game on" approach.

Support for the mix of spending cuts and tax cuts proposed by Ryan, 42, has become a litmus test on the right, and opposing them a rallying cry on the left.

What do you think: Is Paul Ryan a good choice for V.P.?

McKayla Maroney is not impressed by much.

She's just hard to please ... don't blame a girl for having high expectations of herself and others. The Olympics' funniest Internet meme continues today with the U.S. gymnastics standout still not impressed by various people and events.

Specifically, the Dwight Howard trade ... the rest of the NBA may be shaking in its collective high-tops, but one sports star is so like, "Whatever."

This is not to say that McKayla's demanding standards are reserved for sports alone. She was equally unmoved by Kim Kardashian's wedding ...

McKayla Maroney's brutally honest, unmoved reaction after winning the silver medal and not the gold in the Olympic individual vault competition earlier this week has spawned a hilarious Internet meme starring the American gymnast.

If you missed it, here's McKayla's expression:

McKayla is Not Impressed

Hey, you can't blame a girl for her high standards, or for wearing her heart (and look of disappointed apathy) on her sleeve. She just expects better.

This demanding philosophy extends to all facets of Maroney's life, it turns out.

According to a new Tumblr created in honor of the exacting vault queen, McKayla is not impressed by the well-endowed U.S. rowing team either ...

... or the 2011 Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton ...

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seen dancing up a storm during a dinner on Tuesday in Johannesburg, South Africa. The woman's got moves!

On the latest leg of her 11-day African tour, the 64-year-old was cheered on by the attendees of the dinner, hosted by the South African Foreign Minister.

Watch Hill get DOWN on the dance floor below!

Clinton has already visited Senegal, Uganda, South Sudan, Kenya and Malawi; after South Africa she'll head to Nigeria, followed by Ghana and Benin.

Last but not least, her trip concludes with a crucial summit being held in Turkey on the situation in Syria. We recommend more dancing to break the ice.

Aly Raisman's parents may be a little over the top (okay, more than a little), but it's hard to blame them for celebrating her Olympic gymnastics glory.

Well, unless you're this grumpy old guy.

Aly Raisman Parents

In defense of Aly's parents, they are as loving, supportive and enthusiastic as you can get. No one disputes that, some just think they go overboard.

Whatever you might think of the parents most of the time, though, can you really fault them for cheering Aly's floor exercise gold medal Tuesday?

Two gold medals and one bronze for their daughter, the unheralded hero of a team led by Jordyn Wieber and Gabby Douglas? Hard to blame them.

One "gentleman" at Greenwich Arena disagreed, clearly. After unluckily getting a ticket right behind them, he was hilariously annoyed throughout.

When NBC cameras first cut to him, he stared at Rick Raisman, shaking his head in disgust. A few seconds later, he actually told him to sit down!

Aly Raisman's Parents

Anyone who's ever sat behind some guy who stands and yells at inopportune moments can sympathize here ... but in this particular case, come on.

First of all, the old man had to have known who they were - Aly Raisman's dad in particular does not shy away from making his presence felt.

Second ... what's that guy trying so hard to see? He's seen above telling Rick to sit down AFTER ALY'S ROUTINE. That's just going out of your way to be a jerk.

Is his view of the judges deliberating being obstructed? How sad. This guy probably tells kids to SHUSH at the movies ... during the end credits.

We almost feel like we owe Rebecca Black an apology.

After seeing her pawn her daughter off on her parents last night on Teen Mom, it's good to see Farrah Abraham is putting all her free time to good use.

She recently came out with her book, My Teenage Dream Ended, and now, having just wrapped her new album, has leaked a preview of the first song.

“I'm happy again, and this is my song for finding happiness,” Farrah Abraham tells In Touch of the track, titled “Finally Getting up From Rock Bottom.”

A nice sentiment, but from the opening lyrics - Dude (ahhh!) dude (ahhh!) - it's clear the song is beyond terrible / unintentionally hilarious. Listen:

With overproduced vocals, nonsensical lyrics and zero coherence, "Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom" makes "Friday" look like Grammy material.

Farrah says the song is about going inside and really digging deep in order to find the strength to climb out of the hole she’d found herself in.

Explains the 21-year-old MTV reality star and mother of Sophia, “After almost wanting to kill myself, I found meaning and happiness within.”

We're certainly glad she was able to search within herself and slay some of her demons. Now she just needs to search for a better career.

What's your take on Farrah's new song ...

It appears safe to say this participant in the 110-meter hurdles in the Chinese University Games won't be going to the Olympics. Lolo Jones, he is not.

  • Number of hurdles actually cleared in the event: None.
  • Number of f--ks given: None.
  • Number of competitors bested: Surprisingly not all! If you thought failing to jump would give you an advantage in this race, you'd be wrong!

Watch this epic Chinese "hurdler" do his thing below ...

ATTENTION, GUYS: If your girlfriend is anything like this chick ... or this chick specifically, you may wanna make a run for it. Immediately if not sooner.

Of course, that's pointless, as she's guaranteed to have already attached a GPS tracking device to your car ... and possibly sewn one into your jeans.

Witness protection program may be your only hope.

Basically, those crazy eyes are always watching you, your friends, your Facebook updates, anything. Hope she's good in bed, 'cause you're stuck with her!

Overly Attached Girlfriend debuted two months ago, June 6. But she still deserves some love here, as a public service announcement if nothing else.

Fellas, and ladies ... if your significant other makes that face at you, just throw your phone in the nearest body of water and haul ass. Work out the details later.

If it wasn't obvious, she's spoofing the hit song "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber, but with some interesting new lyrics revealing her inner clingy psycho.

Overly Attached Girlfriend has also become a popular Reddit meme.
