The State of the Union in 11 GIFs and pictures

We've penned our 5 takeaways from President Obama's State of the Union speech. We've pulled the 10 most memorable quotes from the address. We've asked members of Congress to describe the speech in a single word. Heck, we even wrote about how the speech is overrated — before the president even delivered it!

Exhausted? Us too. But before we say goodbye to the State of the Union for another year, we thought we'd have some fun with it. (Gasp!) Throughout the night, we gathered pictures and GIFs that made us laugh.  Our 11 favorites are below.

1. Barack Obama. He points! He smiles! He bites his lip!

2. John Boehner, sad. Resigned? Tired? Bemused? (This is the best Boehner face since this one.)
