WASHINGTON, June 24 (UPI) -- While visiting a Washington D.C., Chipotle, U.S. President Barack Obama broke the number one unspoken rule of ordering -- hands and face behind the glass.

It started with an official picture from the White House, promoting the President's appearance at Monday's Working Families Summit. The photo showed Obama ordering a burrito at Chipotle accompanied by text about his lunch companions.

In the photo, Obama is reaching over the glass sneeze-guard, a move some consider a no-no at the popular chain. The photo quickly went viral, with Twitter users and major media outlets coming together to crack the exact same presidential pun.

In a bit of editorial irony, BuzzFeed seems to have beaten most outlets to the story and chose to play the headline straight. But in the sub-headline, author Andrew Kaczynski couldn't help himself, writing "Presidential overreach, as President Obama reaches over the sneeze wall."
