Monica Lewinsky gets all the votes for this beautiful wordless burn

Just about everybody over the age of 30 knows who Monica Lewinsky is, and quite a few who are younger.

If you aren’t one of them, here’s the crib sheet:

Former White House intern, Monica, became notorious for having an affair with then president, Bill Clinton.

There was a lot of stuff about a cigar and a dress that we don’t need to go into, but trust us when we say that this was a lie.

The incident led to the impeachment of the president, but both parties bounced back – Bill’s marriage somehow surviving and Monica telling her story via Andrew Morton – Princess Diana’s biographer.

She has made a point of accepting that the affair will always be of interest, and she knows how and when to bring it up on her own terms. Like when an UberFacts question went viral.

There were some great answers.

The inimitable Ms. Lewinsky didn’t even need words.

People loved it.

The subtle burn has been retweeted almost 60,000 times, which means there’s a chance that Bill Clinton could have seen it. If he has, he’s keeping his mouth shut.

It’s also very much worth a look at the other responses people gave to UberFacts here.
