McKayla Maroney is Not Impressedhttp://mckaylaisnotimpressed.tumblr.com/

It's the face that launched a thousand ships memorable meme.

When U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney took home the silver on Sunday in the vault competition, her expression pretty much said it all. She was clearly disappointed.

Not surprising, the look quickly took on a life of its own by way of the "mckayla is not impressed" Tumblr page that shows Maroney being, yep, not impressed with everything from the first moon landing to the royal wedding to (gasp!) the Spice Girls.

But Maroney insists it had nothing to do with the medal around her neck.

"It wasn't the silver that I was disappointed about," she told Savannah Guthrie on Thursday's Today. "I was just disappointed in what happened and how I performed. I really wanted to be able to hit both my vaults, but I ended up falling on my second one. I was just disappointed in myself, not the silver medal. It's amazing to be here and be on this team and compete for USA."

As for becoming a meme? No word yet from Maroney on whether or not she's, well, you know.
