You’ve seen them. Your friends have posted them on Facebook. Heck, you probably posted them on Facebook. They’re the hilarious images from the Texts from Hillary Tumblr—images of a too-cool Secretary of State Hilary Clinton texting with a variety of people from aboard a military C-17 plane—and they’re the work of gay duo Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith.
Well Hill-dawg has seen them too, and she things they’re a riot. In fact she invited Lambe and Smith to meet her at the State Department on Tuesday. (No, not to ship them off to Guantanamo.)
She gave them a heads up by sending a TFH submission of her own (at right).
Metro Weekly spoke with the guys, who both work in PR in Washington DC. Said Lambe:
“I just kept coming up with perfect results of people like Anna Wintour and Meryl Streep on their phones, and there’s just this natural alignment. I think a lot of people associate those three women in similar circles,” Lambe says by phone this afternoon.”
Given the parody nature of the Tumblr, Lambe said he and Smith were initially suspicious of the authenticity of Clinton’s submission. “They definitely had to tell us a few times, ‘Hey, that really is from her.”
In the end, Smith and Lambe immortalized their meeting with Secretary Clinton yesterday the only way possible: With a photo of all three of them wearing shades and texting on their phones.
And with that, an Internet meme is over. Or is it?
