A photo of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s beach escape was elevated to legendary status as it launched countless hilarious memes on the internet.
The governor and former GOP presidential candidate was roasted after being photographed on a family outing, soaking up the sun on a beach that was closed to visitors after a government shutdown over the state budget.

And while Christie dismissed the backlash and moved on, the photo-shopping had just begun.

Though a government shutdown won’t last forever, lucky for us the “Beach Christie” memes and GIFs will.
