Twitter is lighting up over President Obama’s bizarre guest-book autograph — seen in a photo taken by Getty Images/AFP — which he dated “May 24, 2008.”

Really.

Too much of that Guinness beer, I guess.

Or a teleprompter glitch?

Or maybe he was going for one of those ASCII-style emoticons?

Leave your best theory.

More from the Daily Telegraph:

But the president seemed to have made a gaffe during the occasion – signing Westminster Abbey’s distinguished visitors’ book with the wrong year.

Mr Obama dated his entry in the book May 24 2008, rather than the current year.

Apparently Mr Obama was heard to ask the dean what the day’s date was – but managed to get the year wrong.

A Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date.
