Bin Laden Situation Room Photo Becomes Instant Meme

The events of the Situation Room are quickly transformed into a smorgasbord of memes.

The Real Situation Room

Every generation has an iconic photograph attached to historical events. Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. The Kiss in Times Square. 9/11. And now, the snapshot of President Obama's Cabinet absorbing the news of the death of Osama bin Laden is slated to join the ranks -- and also become a Photoshopped instant meme.
Here's how the deal went down in the Situation Room, according to the Internet.
