On Wednesday, U.S. President Barack Obama delivered a speech that called for the worldwide reduction of nuclear arsenals. Obama's call to action at the Brandenburg Gate resonates with history, falling just days shy of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's inspiring Cold War speech that made famous the line, "Ich bin ein Berliner."
But in this modern age, the U.S. president must be concerned with more than just nuclear armaments. In fact, Germany possesses its own sinister, secret weapon:
The Angela Merkel photobomb.

No word yet from Berlin on whether or not Obama has called for Angie to disarm for future photo shoots.
