If you don't know what dabbing is, you're not alone: The joke was lost on Ryan, who just seemed confused. (For the record, it's a viral dance move made famous by Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.)

"Do you want to put your hand down?" Ryan asked the young man, adding, "You gonna sneeze?"

Ryan later tweeted, "Just finished swearing-in photos. Nearly 300 members. Countless cute kids. Still don't get what dabbing is, though."

"Just so you know @SpeakerRyan: He's grounded," Marshall tweeted.
