A curious photo montage of Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama and Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at late South African leader Nelson Mandela's tribute has been making the rounds online Tuesday, with speculation that Mrs. Obama was none too pleased with her husband taking a selfie with the Danish leader.

According to a photo shared online by Agence France-Presse, the testy affair may have been sparked after President Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt got up close and personal for a self-portrait, with the Denmark leader sandwiched in the middle.

Clearly, Mrs. Obama had no interest in getting involved.

British Prime Minister David Cameron, Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and U.S. President Barack Obama pose on Dec. 10, 2013, for a self-photograph during a tribute to the late Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

That AFP photo, shared less than a hundred times on Twitter since its initial posting Tuesday morning, has since been linked to the photo montage below shared online by @TheBlogPirate.

The photo montage of the Obamas (see the original here) has been shared more than 1,000 times by Twitter users.

The images appear to show first lady Michelle Obama looking a little peeved over the situation. Perhaps she was upset not to have been included in the selfie, or thought the occasion called for more gravity, seeing it was a tribute to anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela, who died Thursday, Dec. 5 at the age of 95.

Here's a close up of the photo montage. The final image at the bottom shows the president's post-selfie seating arrangements.
