Michelle Obama Says: Splurging Is The Key To Life

From the Associated Press:

Michelle Obama: ‘splurging is the key to life’

By STACY A. ANDERSON | April 21, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries.

We suspect that Mrs. Obama actually said "Splurging on multi-million dollar vacations all around the world for my mom and my daughters on the taxpayers’ dime is the key to life." But the AP edited that middle part out.

"How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn’t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries."

If only her splurges were limited to French Fries.

The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them…

Obama Is Eating At The Legendary ‘Jiro Dreams Of Sushi’ Restaurant

On the first day of President Barack Obama’s trip to Asia, he and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dined at a legendary sushi restaurant made famous by a 2011 documentary…

Chef Jiro Ono, 87, is considered to be one of the top sushi chefs in the world… His recommended special course — which features a rare, endangered species of bluefin tuna — starts at about $300. It includes more than a dozen courses served in about 20 minutes…

"That’s some good sushi right there," Obama told reporters as he left the restaurant…

It tastes even better when its endangered. Did Obama also enjoy some Desert Tortoise soup?
