German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in rare form Monday, cracking jokes and chatting with dignitaries outside the G7 summit in Bavaria.
She welcomed world leaders to the second day of the event being held at the Elmau castle resort as the media snapped pictures of the gathering.
One of those pictures that stood out among the fray has social media buzzing.
In it, the tough-as-nails chancellor looks more like Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music” — ready to burst into song.
The Twitterverse had fun mocking and captioning the photo.
