Caption contest: What's with the faces?

(CNN) - Something strange is happening in the photo above - we just don't know what it is. Cameras caught the moment, but not what prompted President Barack Obama and former first lady Barbara Bush to make these faces.

The pair was attending the dedication ceremony for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

What do you think they're talking about? Write your own caption for the photo in the comments below.

    "Achoo," sneezed Obama. "Bless you, Mr. President, or is that politically incorrect?" said Mrs. Bush.

    That's her normal facial expression. And President Obama is just reacting to meeting her.

    Former President George H.W. Bush felt so moved by all the patriotism, he stood up in his chair, and his pants promptly fell around his ankles.
