Side Eye Champion of the Year

My buddy Nichelle of Anovelista sent me this photo and it cracked. me. UP!! Ha haaaaa! If that isn’t what we Trinis call a “cut eye,” I don’t know what is.

The caption reads as follows: “US President George W. Bush (C) leans over to talk with a girl (R) after Bush participated in a lesson for young children on the importance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day during a tour of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC, 21 January 2008. By Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty.”

It’s been posted over at Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish.

Little girl, I don’t know who you are… but thanks for making my Tuesday morning brighter. I needed a good belly laugh to kick off what’s bound to be a busy day.

  1. That’s definitely a “you are in my personal space, and I don’t know you like that, president or no president” look — wow. Definitely made me smile.

  2. That is a sweet cut eye! LMAO. I don’t blame her.

  3. That is priceless! How she looks in the picture is exactly how I feel toward him.

    “Back up off of me , mister.” I know this look well. Thanks for laugh this morning.

  5. If that is not funny, what is. :) Maybe she was thinking, “dude your breath is foul. you should chew and swallow a few breath mints”. LOL

    please, I can’t stop laughing…

  7. HAAHAHA OMG I saw this on the news last night and could not stop laughing…I salute you lil one!!

  8. Who you be all up on me? This is as real as real can be, than the fakey fake cheesy pics we are used to seeing of folks posing with political figures.

  9. ha! i am sending this to my friends right now!

  10. Mrs. Mckinzie says:

    I guess that children do know more than we sometimes give them credit for.

  11. I hope this child’s mother makes this an 8×10 and puts it on the wall. Priceless!

  12. Lord! I am HOWLING over here! I know that’s right, little girl. If I ever met him, I’d be giving him serious “Madam”, too (that’s what we call the ‘side eye’ in my family).

  13. wrote this someplace else says:

    This is why the pic is so funny…

    I didn’t even read the caption or anything else to know, that the only grey-haired white man she could have possibly looked at that way, was our president.

  14. Love the “cut eye!” Or as my family would say, “She passed me a pair of eyes!”

  15. I second that young ladies’ ‘cut eye’! She has also made my day! Afrobella u have brought me laughter on a rainy day, thanks!

  16. Just one of George Bush’s scheduled appearances to interact with black people! lol@ the eyes!

  17. That photo is priceless!

  18. Ha! Gotta love someone giving Bush the classic “Bitch, please” look. And I’m stealing “cut eye.”

  19. BlackHoney says:

    I see I’m not the only Southern chick in the house. I received more than one pinch from my Grandma for “cutting my eyes” at her like the kid in the picture.

  20. BlackHoney says:

    I guess a lot of us use that term.

  21. She looks like she’s saying, “N-word, please.”

  22. That’s a classic “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout Willis” look to me!!! Too funny.

  23. Yes, I don’t know who gets the award for side-eye of the year, her or that cute little baby that was a viral sensation a month or so back. HILARIOUS. I TOTALLY feel her.

  24. This is sooooo my new desktop background!

  25. hahahahahahaha!!!
    I bet as he walked away she sucked her teeth at him too!
    TOO FUNNY!!!
    Cheers for the laugh Afrobella..

  26. Love it! Her whole body language is so not feeling him. It’s like she wants to say, “I heard what Kanye said about you after Katrina!”

  27. there’s a great picture with hilary gettin the ‘i wish you would’ picture too. those kids are awesome.

  28. MY HERO!

  29. BrahmaBull says:

    “My man, why you goota put yo’ arm around me? Yo’ breath smell like hotdog water!”

  30. She can see right through the bullsh*t!! Classic!

    There’s another one with Hillary that’s been floating around… same kind of situation. I’ve been looking for it to post on my blog. A link on another blog I read sent me to yours, and I thought I’d find it here. And instead saw this one.

  34. I GO TO SCHOOL WITH HER OMG. I wonder if she knows she’s this popular lol


  1. […] January 22, 2008 by quarterlifequeer I was over on Afrobella and I saw this and could not stop laughing. Thats Bush’s ass about to get the elbow from that little girl. She looks like ” If you don’t take your old white hand off me.. I swear!” There are just so many captions that could be applied to it… all of which end in that girl rolling her eyes and walking away.
