Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech Triggered 100 Million Boners

Oh man.

How inspiring was Michelle Obama’s speech at the DNC last night?

Seriously. I’m pretty sure her words instantly cured leprosy and triggered the evolution of dinosaurs coming back to Earth to amicably co-exist with us.

Her speech made me want to strip down to my underwear, give away everything I own and go out into the street and give random hugs to strangers.

While she spoke, it’s as if a spirit entered me. I found myself lifting to my feet  with one hand over my heart and the other waving in the air.

I think today I should find a Baptist church to go to.

I felt it last night and so did a lot of America.

In fact, Americans collectively had a boner for Michelle Obama (and for those who didn’t…we know you have trouble getting it up).

My Twitter and Facebook feeds were filled with gushing comments about the first lady.

It was impossible not to feel emotionally overwhelmed by her flawless and moving speech.

I was going to compile a list of my favorite Michelle Obama speech memes, but there aren’t really any (SO GET ON IT, GANG!)

Except for THIS AWESOMENESS by Bobby Finger:

And this is kind of on point too:

And here are my own contributions:

    Since I’m not American, I did not watch her speech – but I don’t envy you guys this election. It looks like a tough battle.

      For those of us who support gay marriage, a woman’s own say over her body and the environment, it’s not that tough of a battle.

        No, no, no – I totally agree with you. I just mean, with so much coming from the other side. Those issues, in my mind, shouldn’t even be part of a campaign. It shouldn’t have to be a battle at all.

        I’m lucky to live in a country where same-sex marriage is legal. And so far, women have freedom to deal with their own sexual health without it being debated by a room full of men.

        I hope the election goes in your favour – I really do.
