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.”

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.

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