Not even the pomp and ritual of the White House can overcome the most powerful force known to man: TEEN CONTEMPT.

Today President Obama undertook the White House's stupid traditional Thanksgiving ceremony of "pardoning" a turkey. His daughters Malia and Sasha, 16 and 13, accompanied him. Their barely contained disdain for the production was utterly appropriate and utterly magnificent:

MSNBC reports:

When asked by her dad if she would like to pet Cheese the turkey, Malia Obama responded, "Nah."

DAD. Video below. The first 20 seconds contain among the highest concentration of teen-face seen in the White House since Alice Roosevelt was caught smoking cigs on the roof.
