Dropping the Mic Now Officially Belongs to the Realm of Nerds After Obama's Weekend Feat, Nerds Now Account for 91% of All Mic Drops on Record

See, it's an old joke by now. Goes like this. Take one very straitlaced person, egghead-y person or leader of the free world. Have them drop mic. The result: instant meme immortality.
