Theresa May Made A Weird Face When Meeting Some Children And Became An Unexpectedly Relatable Meme

    Some children showed her some Lego, and she just sort of...winced.

    So Theresa May was visiting a school on Wednesday when this happened.

    She was at Captain Shaw's primary school in Bootle, Cumbria, while she was visiting Copeland, where there's a by-election.

    And while the children showed her what appears to be Lego, she, well, grimaced at them a bit.

    It took precisely no minutes before everyone procrastinating the afternoon away on Twitter noticed the pictures.

    It was not ~unnoticed~.

    And people felt it was rather relatable.

    "Dear god, what IS that." "Lego." "Yuck."

    British politicians of course have a long and glorious history of not coming out on top in arranged PR opportunities in schools.
