Well played, person who oversees the White House Instagram account. Nothing like a cute dog and a little pop culture throwaway to pile on the likes.
The account put out a picture of Bo, the presidential family's Portuguese water dog, sitting by the "E Pluribus Unum" seal in the Oval Office. He looks plaintively at the camera with the hint of a tennis ball visible in his mouth.
The text: "Bo, stop trying to make fetch happen."
Too embarrassed to admit you've never seen "Mean Girls?" Just imagine the horror of high school girl politics crossed with "Saturday Night Live." Popular girl Gretchen Weiners (who is very important 'cause her dad was the inventor of toaster strudel) is trying to get the British slang "fetch" going (you know, "That's so fetch!"), but Evil Queen Bee Regina George shoots her down.
"Stop trying to make 'fetch' happen!" she huffs. "It's not going to happen."
Clearly, Bo Obama very badly wants to make fetch happen in the Oval Office, but it's just not going to happen.
Regina George would be proud.
