Yep, there was President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron caught posing for a selfie Tuesday at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service at Johannesburg's FNB Stadium.

The woman taking the cell phone pic, with an able assist from the president, is Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

The three mugged for the camera as First Lady Michelle Obama sat nearby, somberly paying attention to the service.

Was the selfie appropriate?

question.

Apparently it was a day for picture-taking. Former president George W. Bush posted a photo of himself with Bono on Instagram.
