Barack and George W. succumb to self-preservation selfies for posterity at Mandela memorial

Some may consider taking a selfie at a memorial service to be in jackal-retching poor taste … akin to farting while meeting the Pope.

Nevertheless, President Obama took a smiling selfie with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial Tuesday.

Not so cool, Barack.

Granted, the memorial was considered a celebration of Mandela’s life, including music and dancing. So it wasn’t exactly a solemn funeral dirge.

Also getting caught up in the moment was former President George W. Bush, who took a selfie with Bono.

At least Bono is a little cooler than Cameron and Thorning-Schmidt.
