      A Central New York mother has become an internet sensation. Jordan Alexander, from East Syracuse, took a picture after she decided to get on the Splash Mountain ride at Disney world in Florida, by herself when her husband said he was too tired. Little did she know this picture would become a social media craze.

      Jordan Alexander says all she wanted was to go on the Splash Mountain ride with her husband, Steven. But, he decided to opt out.

      "It was a long day. I had Bronchitis, I had a crying baby, and my husband informed me that he doesn't have it in him to ride my favorite ride," says Alexander.

      So, Jordan decided to give a humorous, but harsh stare directly to her husband.

      "I kind of practiced it the whole way. And, by the time we got to the last drop I didn't know where the camera was and so I just guessed and looked over and took the picture and that was that," says Alexander.

      "When she first showed me the photo, I just lost it. How could you not? I was like, did you coordinate this with them? Because it was so perfect," says Steven Alexander.

      Her husband posted the photo online saying "I wouldn't go on Splash Mountain with my wife."

      Only one week on the web and the photo has made a splash on the internet; Jordan's face has been photo shopped ever since.

      She's been at a Bernie Sanders rally, she went skydiving, and her face was even replaced by the infamous "grumpy cat."

      "I think it's great that people are taking it and having fun with it. I think some of the photo shops are absolutely hilarious," says Alexander.
